Other Fields
in the Area:
Bellows AF station - last time I played there was 2003 so I do not remember much of the field except lots of woodsball
Directions
to the Field:
H-3 to the MCBH entrance then go to the 2nd light turn right. Go down to the next light and turn right, its on the left behind the bus parking.
NOTE: if you are not military call ahead so Roland can put you on the list to get through the gate.
Review: Let me first start out by saying the field really is a great field. Roland and his family are excellent hosts. My friend Don brought me to this field prior to me heading to Iraq and from the first day I was hooked. Today will unfortunately be my last day playing here for I am leaving to head to the mainland. Thank you Roland and the crew at Paintball Hawaii for everything.

Safety: The safety briefs are always great. Very informed of the rules. They even take it a step farther and walk the beginners through with the in and out of the rental markers.

Fields: Airball field, lego field and the blue field. There is a Airsoft field which I think I have seen the beginners play on once or twice. Each field is excellent for play, I personally like the airball field, but im happy playing any of the 3 fields.

Hours: Of course they are open Sat and Sunday with I think the ability to do appointments for friday.

Prices are very good, 15 all day compressed air, or 5 dollars for a single fill. I dont remember the prices for rental gear but I do know its very well priced.

Staff & Refs: Like I said in the beginning Roland and his family are great hosts. The refs are also really good. They cover the rules and stick to them very well. I watched one kid get shot in the mask and while still being shot at start to lift his mask, one of the refs ran up and covered him and made sure the mask was down, it was a very attentive ref to say the least.

Rules: The rules are pretty standard for most fields Ive been to, everything you bring on the field is in play, if you get shot in it your out. The big rule is if your caught lifting your mask while on the field, you sit for 5 games. You do it a second time your done for the day, in my opinion a great rule for safety reasons. Also usually when beginners and advanced players are playing together theres no bunkering which makes for happy beginners, if your advanced and playing with advanced, they usually let you bunker each other.

Players: There are a lot of return players to this field. A few teams are always there and don't mind playing with others, IE Tropical Lightening and Rapture. Thanks guys for the advice and help you've shown. Its very rare you run into a upset player, but like any field they do exist from time to time. It usually amounts to a disgruntled player to a actually fair call.

All in all this field is one of the biggest reasons I wish I wasn't leaving Hawaii. I could play there all weekend and never get tired. Also for those who don't like the drive from one end of the island to the other, Roland is opening another field at Wheeler Army Airfield. It should be opening soon.
