Closest other fields are in San Antonio (Knights, Krossfire, etc)
I will break down this field from my experience on 14 June 2008:
*The staff were extremely friendly, especially the refs. They were quick to check for hits and very much moving about the field making sure everyone was playing fair. When an O-ring blew on my tank, it was quickly replaced and refilled (for free...maybe the norm, but I was always charged at other fields). They allowed us to pick the games we wanted to play (relatively small crowd at first then got larger) and made sure everyone was having a good time. Offered advice, didn't force it- always a plus.
*The fields were an airball field, barrels, wooden bunkers, and a brush field for a scenario-type of game. First let me say this: I hate airball...I like sliding into something hard, not soft. Nonetheless, I thought the field was balanced enough for 6-on-6 without feeling cramped. The wooden bunker field was also well designed, and it had the ability to hold larger games by turning it into a fort-like game...five on defense, fifteen on offense. The barrel field was okay, played on it 3v3, but the guys we played against weren't good enough to really leave an impression (game very short). If I could change one thing it would be better markings of boundary lines, but that is personal. The brush field was okay, but the ground is broken and twisted- an ankle injury waiting to happen to the not-so-graceful player. Nonetheless, probably one of my favorite fields.
*Concerned about the fact that two of the young men out on the field (16/17 year olds) did not need a parent's signature to play. Not sure if they lied about their age, so this is merely an observation, not an accusation.
*Firing blind- not a huge fan of it, and was surprised to see it allowed. Firing through a hole the size of the barrel on the paintball gun poses a lot of risks to me (no peripheal vision if somebody is eliminated and crossing the field or some other such scenario). Again, not a major problem, just something I am not a huge fan of.
*The field paint was fair (not sure brand), but everybody was having trouble getting breaks. I got hit five times in a row and none broke...might have been the weather, the gun, the paint, an act of sheer luck, who knows.
-Overall: Great experience. Took a group of 5 academic competitors that I coach (teach high schoolers) and had a blast. Good team-building activity.
