Review: This is personally my favorite field to play at. The fields are real cool(and changing), the players there are for the most part really nice, and the refs are always keeping an eye on the game and making some really cool game types. I was just at the field today and I was talking to the owner about some construction they were doing and found out that they are going to be adding an AIRBALL FIELD to go along with the other speedball field and the two towns. Says it should be done in the next few weeks.

Here's some notes to complement other reviews:

Safety: First thing the refs do in the morning is chrono everyone on the field. Then the go through a the different rules: mask on when on the field, keep the barrel plugs in at all times except during the games, quarter-size paint mark, all the stuff to keep the games safe and fun. They also encourage the players to yell at players that take off their mask during a game so that they get back on asap. They're always really good about safety so that no one worries about getting shot during a break on the field.

Fields: They have three fields soon to be four. First, the top field is a smallish town that also has a hill on one side and some bunkers in whats called he alley( pathway around the hill on slightly higher ground than the rest of the town. This is my favorite field here as it gives close quarters action with a wide variety of bunkers that gives it a realistic feel. Definitely a fun field.

They have another town on the bottom field which is fairly large. Has some trenches and tunnels under it. A wide variety of bunkers too. Some what one sided as it is on a slope and one team always starts at the top. Still good for some great games.

Speedball field is kind of neat. It's a mix of water tanks and different wooden bunkers. Its pretty cool, but not my favorite. I don't care for speedball that much so the field being poor doesn't concern me too much. I have watched the advanced players playing on the field and they just go crazy sliding into different bunkers and really working the field. Many players and reviewers have voiced the need for an airball field, which I'm happy to say they started working on this weekend.

AIRBALL FIELD: The field will have an airball field within a few weeks if everything goes to plan. The refs and the field owner were talking about needing to get a tractor in to level out the ground for the field and they have already started working on the supports for the fields netting. The spot is only about fifty feet from the parking lot so no hiking to it. Should be really cool when finished.

EDIT: The Airball field just opened up last week and I got to play there this weekend. This is the first airball field I have ever played on, but it was balanced really well with the bunkers setup so as to mirror each other. I played more speedball this weekend than I ever have before and it was really fun. The new air bunkers are really fun to play with instead of water barrels and tanks. Watching some of the more advanced players should me some new ways to use the bunkers so I hope next week will be even better.

Hours of operation: Gates open about 8a.m. First games between 9-10 a.m. and the last go till around four depending on the players and how everyone is doing.

Game types: all games are usually 8 to 15 minutes long.
-Elimination: self expliaining. sometimes they have a period in the beginning for reincarnation. If you get shot during the reincarnation period you just go back to your starting point, wipe of the hit and go back in. Keeps the game going for a bit longer.
-Capture the flag. Reincarntion usually.
-Football: a bucket is placed in the middle of the field. Have to get the bucket and take it to your enemies base to win. Reincarnation usually.
-Easter egg hunting: New game type the used today. Three buckets placed at the fifty of the town on the bottom field must collect at least two of them and control them in your base at the end of the game.
-Foxes and Hounds: One of my favorites. Its usually 8 players( foxes: the most experienced or gutsy players) verse everyone else at the field called the hounds( 30 to 50 players on average). Depending on the field they will either put the foxes in the castle/ base at the top of the bottom field, or let them hide in the top field's town and then be hunted out by everyone else. This game is often pretty fun. Reincarnation for the hounds only for usually the first half of the game. Foxes get no reincarnation.

Prices: Really good.
-15 dollars half day till noon-ish.
-20 dollars all day.
-7 dollars for all day nitro/air
-4 dollars a fill for CO2
-35 dollars for half day gun rentals plus 300 paintballs and air.
-45 dollars for all day rentals plus 500 paintballs and air.
-Bring your own paint or they have some house paint. I just bring paint.
They have field patches for ten dollars that on your next time there get you 5 dollars off admission. Pays for itself plus some after a few visits.

The guys in the shack will give you a hand with your marker if its not working. They're also pretty cool about o-rings and small stuff. No nickel and dimin' ya.

They serve hot dogs and chili dogs at lunch. 3 dollars for a chili dog. They're actually pretty dang good. Also have chips in the little lunchable bags and water and soda. Water dollar and soda 75 cents.

They have an andy gump there. They keep it pretty clean and full of the chemicals needed so it never smells that bad.

This is a great field to play at with its different field types, cool refs, and the price is right. I would recommend this field to anyone in a heart beat! Have fun flinging paint!
