Period of
Field Use:
3 years
Last There: May 5th, 2007
Paintball
Experience:
3 years
Review: This was my second time at this field. Not much has changed within the past three years.

Pros:

>All woodsball
>5 varied fields we played at, all are medium sized and offer a variation of terrain, I like them all.
>Great refs, the kids try to make everyone have fun.
>Relaxed atmosphere, barrel (plugs, masks, etc) ... sometimes a little too much (see below)
>Clean port-a-potty (but only one)
>Snack stand, candy bars, hot dogs ($2), sodas and energy drinks.
>Owner tries hard for smooth operation.
>BYOP - good for me since I can bring along the good stuff for my flatline, yet bad if idiots want to bring old and or frozen paint ... you never know.

Cons:

>No mandatory chrono - should sticker all chronoed markers.
>No CO2 - should have posted this on their websites, only HPA. You can rent HEAVY tanks for $5 ...
>Only played 2 rounds on each field and then walked back to staging area to refill, should play 3 rounds ... it just seemed that we were doing more walking and waiting than playing. This was part fault of the 2 rounds per field and my group of wasting time at the staging area being lazy. Besides, if each team winds one round then there is no tie breaker.
>Played too much elimination, refs seemed to like this for some reason, probably time constraint.
> Only one port-a-potty, is someone takes a dump, then there is a line. Two for this sized field should be standard. Good note was that it was clean, even for the ladies. ;-)
>Noticed more than usual amount of idiots walking around without barrel plugs, firing by mistake (finger on trigger) and shooting near dead-boxs. Refs do tell them, idiots are just not very educated in gun safety and have few brain cells left, not ref's fault.
> Bad planning, they demolished an old trailer. They did it on a Saturday when they have the most amount of people there playing?!? Come on owner Bill, that needs to be done on a weekday.
>BYOP - good for me since I can bring along the good stuff for my flatline, yet bad if idiots want to bring old and or frozen paint ... you never know.

Overall I like this field and will play there again with the right crowd. Picasso Lake Paintball could easily be a top field for woodsballers if they organized it a little better. It has a steady business, yet could really be big with a few basic changes and upgrades - high potential!

I'm a little confused by your post. You said you have only played at Picasso twice in three years and that not alot has changed. There have been many changes in just this past year. You even mentioned the trailer being torn down. When it was done did not intrude on anyones playing time. I do agree that there are some knuckleheads who just dont get the whole barrel plug thing but you said more than usual. What is the usual amount? I think one is too many but the refs are on those who need to be reminded. As far as only playing two games per field, most people can only carry enough paint for two games. IF they carried more they wouldn't be able to keep them frozen. LOL. Picasso did go to hpa only this year and did swap tanks for free until March. All hpa gets people filled quicker and back out to play.

sandman is right...
little confusing review
you had PROS in the CON section ... Example >BYOP - good for me since I can bring along the good stuff for my flatline, yet bad if idiots want to bring old and or frozen paint ... you never know.

The field demo'ing a trailor really had no affect on playtime

Im not sure about you but i dont really have air for 3 games, i usually go through 1 Hopper and 1-2 Pods a Game depending on ammount of people playing. Lately at picasso, the games are upwards of 15 on each team... thats alot of targets. HPA Tanks can be bought from them at i believe $70 for a 3000psi Steely. To be honest HPA is the way to go!

Ill explain why HPA > CO2 if you want. <dodgy>
