Review: I originally went out with a few of my friends to play out there. I had a blast. The refs were good the atmosphere was great and everyone generally had a great time. Since the first experience I had I have been back numerous times. I have gotten to know all the refs and people in the pro shop. It's to the point were they know my name when I walk in. They also have a program where every sixth visit is free. This program does not cost you anything. I highly recommend this field.

Prices
An entry free of about $22 is charged if you have your own gear. It's $35 if you need to rent the mask, gun, and 500 paintballs. The paint is priced fairly. unlike most fields which charge you $70 to $80 a case when you know you could get it for like $30 to $40 cheaper.

Atmosphere
The months I have been going I have always had fun. There are some days with large crowds and days with smaller crowds. The refs always make sure to divide the teams so each teams had new and experienced players. This makes for a much better atmosphere because there is never a game where you know which team will win from the start. Everyone I have met there as been pretty honest. A lot players have a lot of high priced items which they will loan you if you don't have something. My first day I had a guy I didn't even know let me use his gun which I later fond out was a $1200 gun and when you had the tank and hopper it was holding about $1600 worth of gear that someone else paid for.

Safety
Is always a top concern out here. I have seen the refs run from one side of the city to the other to get onto people for blind shooting or lifting their masks on the field. I have also seen them tell players who get mad because they were shot out or called out "Ain't no crying in paintball". Every one has to chrono their guns when they arrive and they sit in the chrono area with you until your gun is within the legal limits.

Fields
Classic has five fields. two spools, one xball, one city, and one iron man field. The two spools are usually always being played on. The xball field is where I love to have fun. the city games are fun, but they do use a lot of paint. The one open field is used for a lot of different games like iron man or British warfare there are not bunkers or protection on this field so you had better have you pain tolerance up and your extra padding on. No matter which field you are on the teams will be broken up evenly and you will have fun.

I live approximately an hour away from classic paintball and there are at least 3 fields closer to my house, however when I compare the price of gs to the price of the paint the other 3 fields try to sell it's still cheaper to go to classic. I like most people order my paint from the Internet so I always go with enough paint to last the day. I do not know of any other field where you can play all day, get free air, bring your own paint, and still have such a fun atmosphere and meet new people.

My first visit hooked me for this field and now I have become a regular and now I'm considered one of those experienced players. If you have any doubts come out and see for yourself.

I give Classic a 9 out of 10. Because lets face it no field is perfect, but this one is pretty close.
