Review: I was there today (Sunday, June 3rd) for the "swamp day" (found online last night on the fields homepage's forum)

It rained...almost all day. With own equipment I got free entry/air, and rentals were only $5...so if you missed it, too bad.

Oh, and everyone that showed up got a coupon for free admission through june 30th.

Ok, on to the actual review.

Paint was either white box ($45) or Ultimate Chronic ($55)

I used the chronic and it shot great (albeit the rain and wind had an effect) and had a superb thick fill. Let's say there was no wiping to be had with this paint. I was happy with it, seemed fresh. Paint gets 2 thumbs up.

Fields...we played the woodsball field first (I showed up late) known as "wilderness"
Trail was a bit muddy, but with rain all day, and woods....I expected it. The few bunkers were well placed, and provided excellent cover. Also played this field last, and fell victim to a young boy who let me walk right past me before he gogged me with one ball. Excellent stalk.

They have a Huuuuge field that they call "The Concept" field.
In the center is a well built castle (slippery on the 2nd level due to the rain..but cmon, it's plywood.) Surrounding this were spools. cans, Stumps, shrubs, small forts made of wood...and something you don't see everyday...an RV...a small Plane...a boat. Def. a very fun field. It was so big, that you could use cover to your advantage quite well. Flanking opponents was quite fun, and the ball that bounced off my profilers that arced across field...very scary. That would've been the 2nd game in a row that young boy got me out...but, a few pods later, and about 20 bunkers, led to some surrenders and a well placed head-shot. Game over. =]

They also have 2 speedball (sup-air) fields. The one we played on (blue bunkers) was set up well for 3-man. We played a few games there as well, and it was awesome. The muddy parts of the field had sand placed over them, which says a lot for the upkeep. I always love fields that think of the players.

That does it for the fields we played on...I think I fell in love with the concept field. Def. a must if you're in the area.

The referees were humorous, safety oriented, and gave the players the choice of fields to play as well as playing style. This is an absolute MUST for fields in my opinion. They also turned games around pretty quickly. Refs. get a well deserved 2 thumbs up here as well.

Air fills...Thank god, a field that can fill to 4500Psi...well...about 4300 psi, but that's a good plus in my book. They had 2 whips by the looks of it, but only used one. Fills were quick, nothing more to be said here.

Clientele...the staff was overall friendly, and the girl that checked us in was nice and actually knew a thing or two about paintball. The place seemed a bit laid back and for a rainy sunday afternoon, it was a good place to be. They even ordered pizza to sell midway through the day. The shop was decently stocked, offering some jerseys, markers (high-end, low-end, and in between) They didn't have a lot of items, but they had a little bit of everything.

The staging area was comprised of a few picnic tables, and the staff set up some tents over 2 of them to protect our stuff from the rain. (awesome)

The chrono area was just inside the netting to the concept field, with one red chrono. Standard.

Overall, the field was great, the staff made me feel welcome, and I had a lot of fun. I'll def. be going back, this time with more friends to shoot. =]

Btw...I usually rock a black mini, and some green profilers.
See you there! (or not...in the case of that one kid...)
