Review: First time I got the play in over a year or so. Got to the field right as it opened, but unfortunately there wasn't any one else there. Probably normal for 11 am in the middle of January on a 34 degree day.

Field: Has two woodsball and one speedball course. It had recently rained and the field had not dried yet, so slop and slide were abundant. Nothing you could do but play through. The speedball used solid bunkers instead of inflatable ones which I prefer. The woodsball course was nice, but it is built into the side of a mountain. Set provides interesting tactics, unless it is muddy like it was, then attempting to scale the mountain proves both futile and somewhat interesting(I spend 20 minutes on my butt trying to get traction just to be able to stand up).

Shop: Shop is a lot smaller than some that I have been to. John the owner is working on building a bigger one. Rentals are a mix of 98C and Pro-Carbines. It is a field paint only field unless you want to pay $10 to bring your own. The field paint is Proball which I must say doesn't play well in cold weather(got shot almost point blank and no break) All day air was $10 and the field fee was $15 so about what I have seen at other fields.

Staff: This was a first for me. There was a large church group there when we went, and when they were playing speedball, a couple of the participants went out without filling up on CO2. When their guns starting phmpmphmphmphmphm'ing they ran fresh CO2 to the player so they could keep playing. Very impressive. The refs are good guys and most of the players are a mix of talent.

Overall: Having played only at Paintball Charleston, any other field is going to pale by comparrison, but I must say that Smokey Mountain paintball is a solid playing field. The setup offers a range of challenges(even more when muddy) but all in all worth the drive.
