The accuracy of this review is disputed. Please see discussion below.
Period of Field Use:
August 6th, 2007
Other Fields in the Area:
that i've played, bragg creek
other, rampage indoor, capture the flag
Directions to the Field:
west on 22x till you hit 22 south, follow to 549, take that east, turn on first road, there is a big sign, hidden behind another sign, turn right to go south, it is quite far down, you will probibly think you passed it, gravel driveway on right, tip, don't go up there with a low car
good feild, they have spent what i concider too much money on the feilds themselfs, GREAT to play, but safety is an issue, there are no nets around the feilds, the safezones are small boxes where you can pull your mask off, not big enough for everyone, the end of the game, the ref calls out barrel plugs in masks off, most people take their masks off then put their plugs in... safety needs to be stepped up a few notches, there is one feild right on the road, if a car goes by while a game is on, it will get hit by paint, not just a possibility. There are also too many branches at low level, i'm 6'2" and a few branches nearly pulled my mask off as they were just too low, cannot shoot through it at all, and paint prices are quite steep, 100$ for a case of white box, overall it was good, main concern is the safety and price, staff is very helpful, the tech i spoke with was more than helpful! i would gladly go back to this feild
rating is a 6 because of safety, would be an 8 if safety was the standard of other feilds i have played
Dispute: The trees nearly pulled your mask off? Really? You mean there are trees at some outdoor fields?
I'm just curious what you propose that Ramage should do about it. Perhaps cut them all down? Or just send you to their indoor park where nature doesn't hamper your experience?
Here is a tip that I use when playing outdoor... crouch down when going under a tree. Hoped that helped. Also, to address your concern about not being able to shoot through the trees, perhaps lean out and shoot "around" the trees instead. That 'lil gems been working wonders for me for years now.
I'll ask the two really tall guys on our team ( 6'5 and 6'7 ) to see if the vegitation has been an issue when playing woodsball. Probably not as they haven't requested a game in a parking lot or soccer pitch recently.
Safety? You're right, it is an issue when you have hundreds of spectators watching all of the games and.... oh, right. There are no spectators, just the FULL ENCLOSED DEADBOXES that a person can take there mask off inside of. I've also noticed that the best views are from the deadbox anyway because of their locations... right on the field. Unless you want to stand hundreds of feet away to watch the action, or partial glimpses of it, if the players come even remotely to your viewing corner of the field that is.
Sorry bud but I've been looking at your very funny review of this field for awhile now and had to post something in response.
REMEMBER- it is a poor player who blames his equipment and the trees for his inadequacy on the field.
