Review: ** updates added **

My brother and I made our way out to Trigger Tyme Saturday 4/5/2008 and we really enjoyed ourselves. We came with low expectations .. the weather was terrible, we were running late and we left laughing and having enjoyed a great day of play.

Even though it was raining (sometimes really hard) and we were late (noon) we were able to get in close to 5 hours woodsball play. There were about 20 players.

The Refs were knowledgeable and fair. We played an excellent variety of games. The number and quality of the fields had expanded significantly since our last visit 2 years ago. There was a relaxed and really friendly atmosphere.

Del, the field manager was really helpful and took an active role in ensuring even the youngest players had a good experience.

Field paint (Diablo Heat) was decent and reasonably priced as was the field fee.

HPA and Co2 fills were available and quickly dispersed.

I highly recommend Trigger Tyme.

Return visit : 4/12/2008

I paid another review to TriggerTyme with some guys from work and a member of my extended family. We had a good time but things seemed to run a bit slow between games. There were some large church groups playing so the walkons/recballers had just one ref for about 20 of us. We got about 5 games in during our 7 hour visit.

There were three items of serious concern I noted during this visit:

- No Crono?!! - that's right TT had no working chronograph during our visit. I don't doubt that at least a couple guys were shooting hot. I sure hope I wasn't. I can only imagine what would happen if someone were to get seriously injured due to a high FPS mask hit.

- No rental barrel plugs - What? Yep, the renters (perhaps due to a large church group in attendance) had no barrel plugs. I ended up wearing my mask most of the day for fear of some kid misfiring. This was a scary situation.

- No weighing at the Co2 fill station. They filled by 'feel'. When I asked about how they could tell the CO2 fills were correct I was told that they were probably substantially overfilled and that at long as the burst disks were ok there was nothing to worry about..

This issues all left me feeling concerned. I love TT and we again had a great time on their excellent fields but the lack of attention to these matters left me feeling that safety was not a priority.

I'm going to visit TT again soon and I'll report if these were a one time anomaly or a persistent problem. If they aren't resolved I think my friends, family and I need to find a new field.

We finally made it back to TT today and the safety issues seem to be resolved.

Strict enforcement of barrel plug rules, a working chrono and extra care taken at the co2, hpa fill station.

We had a great time to boot. There were some nice people playing and we had a great time.
