Review: Me and some friends went to scope this place out one day before we played. We called and no one answered. Someone did call back though and give us the basics of the 'feild' and invited us up.

Well the next day three friends and I drove there. The drive is pretty simple... But you can miss the sign to the 'feild'. The sign consists of a dirty peice of plywood spray painted to say "Iron Triangle" and sits in his front yard.

As for the feild I wasnt very impressed but it wasnt as bad as the previous kids said. (~Actually i think that all the bad posts are from a single kid :)~) The feild itself was contained in the owners rather large back yard. A large portion of the feilds have one side facing a highway and a poor mix of busted fences and guard nets stopping paintballs from hitting cars. As soon as we showed up we were greeted by a man who owned a local paintball store and he was extremly friendly.

When he gave me his card the owner of the feild stumbled up and game me his card too... The owner of Iron Triangle is SGT. GEBB. He looked drunk and had no motor skills at the time. The friendly store owner walked me back to the staging area. The enrty had carpets on the ground to keep the mud off you. You pass a booth on the way in the about 30 feet in there is a Fenced in shooting and chrono range... On the oppiste side of this is the staging area. It consisted of some work tables. Chairs a few fire pits and a chefs hut.

This brings me to the cook. The cook was a retired navy chefs who lacked teeth and had a poor sense of clothing. And i think he too was mildy intoxicated. I got there after lunch though so i had no chance to sample to food. But everyone seemed to be fine, haha. From the staging area you can see thru a massive net into the feild,Only a few kids were playing.

From what all the previous post said is true. The feild does have a group of about 18 regulars to the feild. All of the older players were very nice... Some of the younger kids looked like punk rejects and were drinking Those giant Wawa IcedTeas and reeked of malt liqure.

I never saw a single ref in game while i was there. And unlike the other people whom posted reviews i was not charged for air. It was also brought o light that they have year passes. Something like 100 for the pass and every time you comes its 5 dollar. Opposed to the regular 20 each visit.

Even without refs i didnt see a single person cheat. They all yelled out as soon as you hit them and stuck their hands in the air.

When it came time to rap up for the night everyone there help pack up and all invited us back. When we were leaving my friends car got stuck in the mud and they laughed, but who wouldnt?

OVERALL:The place could have looked a little better. His home looked nice from the outside, But I mean you could do a little better then a spray painted sing sitting next to your driveway. And random soggy carpet scraps covering the ground..... The fact that no refs were on the feild and half the people were drunk really hurt the rating. For the price its a great deal. I dont know how they handle the bathroom thing though. My friend just peed in the feild. The lace is Bring Your Own Paint. Which is rare these days. The people that did talk were very nice. Though I doubt I will be back simply because its an hour drive from me. That and drunk miltary vets & kids with paintball guns next to a highway is just asking for trouble.
