Review: This was my 1st time to Mr. Paintball USA and I can say my 12 year old son and I truly enjoyed our Sunday. I’m getting a little long in the tooth so I only played 4 fields, but the variety between them was appreciable. My knees are still sore from moving around on some (all?) of the sloped fields, but that’s more an issue w/ me than the average player. The park wants folks to run down in the 250 fps range so if you have a chrono at home like I do you can dial your markers in before arriving. If not the refs have the gear & knowledge to help you set up your markers speed. The sufficiently netted range is right next to the 25+ covered tables and has fun metal targets to plink at between matches. Also available by the tables are a pair of hand washing stations and a table equipped w/ mask cleaning spray bottles & tissue paper. Free all day air & CO2 for those that have their own gear & paintballs for $25. I didn’t check out the rental gear too closely, but a nice feature is the availability of a full jumpsuit for those that want to protect what they wore to the field.
Both private parties and walk-on’s were playing Sunday w/o issue as the refs used radios to co-ordinate field play. A large, 20+, group of airsoft guys were also playing, but I don’t know if they were walk-on or private party. To a man they were equipped to the nine’s; Mil-Sim digital desert cami’s, belts & vests, real wood stock AK-47 replica’s, M-16’s, etc. It was pretty impressive, but really, what’s up with that?! :D People think I’m over-the-top because I wear a holstered TAC-8 pistol, but I was just not in these guys league.
We didn’t play a single capture the flag game as all contests were elimination. If the game starts to drag the ref will begin a countdown to hurry it along, and I agree w/ this field management strategy. Play is the usual thing
1. walk to the field as a group
2. split up to numerically equal sides
3. discuss any lingering issues/ field specific questions
4. walk to respective corners of field
5. ref checks w/ teams & starts game
After the game, teams swap sides and repeat play. Then everyone heads back to the tables to get more ammo & air. Repeat until field closes.
All the walk-on’s initially played together regardless of experience, marker type or ability. I’m not a big fan of this in general, but the more experienced/better equipped players handled themselves well, no trash talking, not overly aggressive/combative, trying to help the newb’s forward, etc. The walk-on’s were split up in the late morning into beginner/advanced groups because the # of players was finally big enough to allow it.
Overall I had a very positive day w/ my fellow competitors. I recommend this field and hope to see you there soon.
