Compulsion Tuesday, July 31st, 2007
Period of
Field Use:
1 year
Last There: July 22nd, 2007
Paintball
Experience:
2 years
Other Fields
in the Area:
Pevs, Leesburg, VA - More expensive, less friendly, more experienced players
Outdoor Adventures, Bowie, MD - Good Scenario Games, Walk-on is weak
Directions
to the Field:
15S from Leesburg. Take a right onto Hogback Mountain Rd. Follow the signs. You're going to go through some horse pastures and nice places. Once you turn back onto the dirt road, you're very close.
Review: Staff Attitude - 10/10
Hogback has the best attitude in the area. The people that check you in are nice. The refs are responsive and try hard. Pev's still needs some work in this area.

Players - 9/10
The good attitude from the staff seems to carry through to the regular players and they're usually fair and nice.

A lot of the recball players at Hogback are new to the sport. If you play hard and have good gear, you'll find yourself ahead of the curve.

Admission Prices - 10/10
Best prices in the area. I have my own gear and normally have my own paint. It's $15 admission and $5 all-day air.

Facilities - 7/10
Good number of tables at admissions and in the deadzones. You don't have to leave your gear on the ground to get stepped on. Porta-potties at the field. Not so bad for the gents, but I wouldn't want to have to sit down.

Rule Enforcement - 8/10
The refs strictly enforce mask and barrel-plug rules. They WILL sit out players who have a hard time remembering, and will eventually send them home. Cursing and unsportmanlike conduct will also get you penalties.

Food - 8/10
2 Hotdogs, Chips, and a water/soda for $5. They're making a profit and not gouging the player. Everyone wins!

Water - 1/10
On my latest trip, the only water available at the field had to be purchased for $1 a bottle. I'd brought some with me, but had expected to be able to refill at the field. When you're running a sports complex, you should have free water available.

Fields - 8/10
The fields are all at least "ok", with a few good ones. There's a significant hike up to the fields from the admissions area where the crono and refill stations are. This is mitigated some by scuba tanks in the deadzone that can refill your air up to a point (max 3000psi, often lower). If you haul up your paint and shoot air, you shouldn't have to make the hike except for at lunch.

Conclusion - 8/10
The prices and friendliness at Hogback keep me coming back for walk-on. I play paintball to have fun, and Hogback makes that easy.

If they had one more great field and free water available regularly, I would give them a 10.

I will say that I prefer the scenario games at OA Paintball in Bowie, but Hogback has them beat for walk-on hands down.
