Directions
to the Field:
Mapquest it. Easy to Find. DO NOT FORGET TO BRING CURRENT DRIVERS LICENSE PROOF OF INSURANCE AND VEHICLE REGISTRATION. This is on a military base, and the driver has to have these things to get on base. You can have your insurance company fax it to them but it takes 15 minutes. Every adult must also have a valid drivers licence or ID.
Review: K first off. Love the field. My group of at least 5+ drive an hour each way, once every other month or so to play here. We get there at opening and don't leave till we're out of paint.

The 20+ acres of fields, Village, Hamburger Hill and the Forest are all nice. I do think that some work needs to be done on some of these fields however. The village is in serious need of some revamp. Change things up a bit. Some of the buildings platforms have broken leaving jagged edges of wood and nails. The other two fields are decent, but it would still be nice to have some variance and new features/bunkers.

My only gripe at this time is lack of danger close shooting restrictions. They don't allow blind firing, but don't say a word about the risks of shooting point blank. Granted at times, this is unavoidable if you come around a corner or tree and there's someone right there. But if you find yourself in this scenario. DON"T SHOOT FOR THE HEAD. I had a friend get shot in the neck from 15 feet away, and he's lucky as I see it. I got lit up from the same distance by the same person, and 2 weeks later have a huge dark purple area on my arm. I know paintbal hurts, and still I play, love the sport and expect to have some minor injuries, but that was just plain dangerous.

Come up from behind an enemy, have them dead to rights, hit them in the pack, butt, legs, etc, but don't drill them in the back if you can avoid it.

My advise to DZ is to incorporate this into the ref briefings before each match. Simple. Or so you'd hope. Change up the fields from year to year. Spend some of the money you get off of us addicts.
