Ok, first off I'd like to talk about their fields. Dry rocky dirt, not so swell for sliding, I sprained my ankle because I stepped on a fat rock that they just left laying there in the snake. They recently put in turf, at first I was like 'Woah awsome'. I say that they didn't even bother to remove the rocks or flatten the ground before putting in the turf. But before they had turf me and my friends were playing in their hyperball field and they don't even bother to fix up their fields if it's soaked in paint so my friend went running to the 50, slipped, fell, and ate it. But if you're a back player than you should be safe from these hazards.
Now onto the refs. Most of the refs make absolutely terrible calls. I was playing and lighting people up when the ref calls me out and he told me where I was hit, I looked there and showed him and there was no paint yet he still makes me go to the deadbox. I still laugh about this, I was in a gunfight with a guy on the 50 rollie and I had tunnel visioned him. Out of no where a ref goes running by while I'm shooting a rope and I put about 5 in his back and he spin around like a ballerina about 3 times and boy was he mad. I had that ref for the rest of the day and he kept calling me out even though I wasn't hit or whiping or breaking the rules. Another story, about 3 guys left on my side and one last guy left on the opposing side and he was in the back left stand up. Everyone was putting suppresive fire down on him and no one took him out or decided to run up and surrender him. So I ran up to him and shouted surrender and he was the last guy so I'm like, yeah yeah! And the guy that I surrendered decides to light me up when I'm not facing him and I was walking away, I went up to his face and said 'Whats your f-ing problem?!' get this, the ref calls me off the field for 2 games and the game goes on. But I do have to say there are 2 refs at that field that are pretty cool.
At the 'pro-shop' and other details...
Theres this lady at the register who always has an attitude. They charge $10 for a swab, $1 for an o-ring, and $60 for a case of paint. Gatorade is expensive at the price of $2.50 a bottle. I recenlty read in a review that someone said that the SCP field owner is nice and is always helping people, man, I think you got SCP confused with BCMP because the whole year I've played there (approx. 15 times) I have never seen the field owner. At the chrono they don't have any useful tools except for hex keys so I'd recommend bringing your own tools.
All in all if you come prepared you'll have a good time. Don't get the refs angry, and always follow the safety rules.
Oh and also, they don't event bother to fix their rental Ions that are totally thrashed and leaking. For a field who gets this many people, able to hold XPSL events, and have people buy their items at their prices, they should be able to fix their Ions.

hmm seems like every time i go the refs are pretty nice except sometimes they dont see hits. I would agree with you about the girl in the register though she does have a attitude but then i wouldnt blame her for that she has to watch out for her self there espically with all those guys that go through there she probally gets hit on atleast once everyday.
I f*cking HATED that ref man! My pal Max got shot in the mast from atLEAST 7 feet away and the ref called a clean shot!..heh heh then when the ref was turned around looking at another player I capped im right in the ass twice at 30 feet lol. Hey anyone know how I can reach that place? I mean I can't find numbers or e-mails for em? and it's my b-day tomorrow (Turning 18 on the 9th!!!) so I wanna go paintballing pretty bad and I already got like 10 players lined up! so if u know how to contact that place lemme know.
I've also been there before and I have to say that the prices were pretty decent and most of th eother refs were nice. I got free co2 all day and we had SH*TLOADS of paintballs so it was all good. I only hated 1 thing. I brought my own gun and everything but I couldn't take it in with the beginners! so I had to rent 1 of their tippmans.
over all that place was kinda badly scrapped together but DAMN was that fun!
I give this place a 8 rating out of a possible 10!!!
