If you've got it, use a GPS. It's easy to see if you find the right road :P
Review: I have to echo the earlier reviews for this field. It's not the fanciest place, but Tim and the rest of the crew make you feel right at home.

The prices are great! For the first time in my life, a field _recommended_ you bring your own paint. We didn't, and were getting cases of Heat for $34. Admission/ Air is $10, and rental is another $10. The rentals are spyders with JT masks, and in good repair. They have CO2 and HPA, also.

The field is set on 2.3 acres, and all of it is used in one big field. There are four structures on the field: a two story castle, a three story structure with a bunkered first floor and a crows nest, a guardhouse on stilts, and a crackhouse on the far end of the field. There are improvised barricades from spools, tires, plywood, and natural blinds. There are large chunks of wooded area threaded with trails, a nice dry creek with a bridge, and a couple of wrecked cars. The field could easily accomodate a 20v20, and
would still be fun at 30v30. Playing 8v8 made the field seem almost empty. It took at least two or three minutes from the start of each game before the first skirmishes.

Saturdays are the day to play if you're looking to come in solo for some pick up play. Tim mentioned they don't stay open on Sundays during the summer (too hot), so people tend to forget they open all weekend in the winters. I took a group of eight in on a Sunday morning and we played uninterrupted for about 3 hours. Then another group of eight came in and we played the rest of the day.

They apparently have night games once a month (check the website), and run scenarios periodically on a nearby 6 acre plot. They currently have one called "Billy the Kid" in the middle of December (08).

The only word of warning I have is: BRING CASH. They don't take cards, and the nearest ATM is at least 15 minutes away. Tim was nice enough to take my buddy's check, but i don't know if that's policy.

Number of fields: 7/10 (only 1 field, but it can be arranged for nearly any type of play)
Size of fields: 11/10
Variety of fields: 7/10 (see number of fields)
Design of fields: 9/10 (see number of fields!)
Field improvements: 9/10 (the crack house could use some work, but everything else was well positioned and in good shape)

Field Staff: 10/10 (friendly, helpful, and happy to have you there)
Referees: 9/10
Safety: 10/10 (tight on safety, and don't have to scream about it)
Store: NA No store, but Ice cold gatorade for a buck a pop!
Pro-shop: NA No proshop

Final score: 72/80
Final rating: a 9.

I'm going back this weekend for a night game and I'll be back for the scenario! While I'll probably check out the rest of the fields in the area, this is the place I'll play most weekends. The prices can't be beat, and the crew make you feel at home.
