Directions to the Field:
The directions to the field are ok, I used a gps. the field is at an old gun range.
OK when I first got there they would not let u pass the soda machine until someone showed up with the wavers.That understandable but the gentleman they put in charge of this tast was yelling at people. I had brought about 10 people with me to go play. So when the gentleman started to yell at us,I got a little pissed off. And all of my friends where mad to.So I got passed the mad thing. I got signed in and bought a case to start with, it was about 65 bucks. My friends and I got all of are stuff all set. The ref that checked are guns,and went over rules was nice and help full. We had to where a slip on are pants to show that we payed and been over everything. So the first game was on the xball field,the ref that was in charge of that field put way to many people on. And he was the only ref that was on that field watching on the out side. The game only lasted about 3 minutes.Walking off the field I asked witch field is next.The ref on the xball field told me that there was only two fields open.The xball and the woods ball field.witch the woods ball field was pretty nice.I wanted to play on air ball fields.Not just one all of them.Well I could not play on all of them because they where not open.But when the hurricanes showed up,they ran right over and blow up one in the corner where no one could bother them.So I just mined my own and just played on the two fields they would let us play on.ooo and every time I walked off the field the ref on the xball field would check my gun.Maybe he just wanted to hold it,but everytime he shot about 50 balls threw it. So I had to go and purchase another case. That was about half way threw the day. I could tell u the rest but Iam going to sum it up for u,The day for Me and my friends sucked,we went there hoping to play on all the fields and we could not. I should have checked the review of the place before I went there ,that way when I got there I would have not been so let down.So if you go there I hope you have a better time there,than I did.
Dispute: The day that you played at our field was the day before an NEPL Tournament (September 14th) - when we usually have about 25 teams practicing on the event fields for the tournament the following day. We post up on our website during event weekends that the fields are limited in use on the Saturday before and are closed on the Sunday of so that players can make the best choice on a day to come - as we do not want anyone to feel that they were limited in their play without warning. As is also stated on the Maynard web site, the number of fields open on any given weekend are subject to the number of players we have playing that day. We also have groups who book private games / fields on any given weekend that may also account for the number of fields open to the public.
Asking players to fill out waivers is standard practice at any field - and we must have customers do this before they enter the staging areas. When a large number of players walk right by the registration area (big trailer / red tent) - we do stop them and sometimes yelling is the only way to get the attention of people who may not be paying attention.
To clarify, the $65 you paid was for entrance all day air and a case of 2000 paintballs.
Referees are authorized to check guns coming off of the field if they feel they may be in full auto/ ramp so that we may protect the rest of the customers.
I would suggest to anyone coming to Maynard that you check the web site for Special Event Dates the weekend you are looking to come down.
