The accuracy of this review is disputed. Please see discussion below.
Period of Field Use:
October 31st, 2008
More than 5 years
Other Fields in the Area:
All American, Urban Assualt, Crazy Dave's, and anywhere property lines aren't enforced.
Directions to the Field:
I went here multiple times in the past few years and only liked it the first time back in 06'.
Prices: Good a few years ago but honestly you're better off going to Urban Assualt rental, paint, and play-fee wise.
Rules: Had some wierd rules for woodsball. Either that or the referee was improvising rules. In one area they use giant wooden spools used for coiling up obscene amounts of rope I assume. If anyone has ever seen one they you know they have a 1 foot hole in the center. For some reason other players were allowed to shoot out of the holes were the spools met like this, with them being the perioid and the /'s being the spools.( /.\ ). But for some reason when I tried shooting through the huge hole in the spool while the other team was shooting at my feet through the holes on the ground, I GOT penalized.
Ref's- The one ref I mentioned above no longer works there but for some reason every referee they hire has the attitude of the owner's son or something. Always making off-handed comments at players and generaly acting like an asshat.
Proshop- More of a shack to sign you're waiver and pay them for play fee and get CO2. I havent been there in 3 months but last time I went they were missing some basics like the rarer O rings and even shwag for presents ect ect.
Staff- Besides the one ref theres usualy some stoner in the shack to fill you're tank.
Players- Best aspect of the place. Referee cut my velocity spring down to 180 bps because he thought he "Knew" my gun. Thought I was going to have to rent a marker but then some random player walks over with 2 free springs. Also you probably won't find more relaxed woodsballers(Not taking the game too serious.) But at the same time they will willingly work with walk-ins and other groups inside the team.
Facilities- Gravel parking lot, cubical like "Pro Shop", 3-4 woods ball areas, and a speedball course thats almost always deflated. I went in april 07' and they were still saying 65-75 was too cold for the bunkers.
Dispute: Wow, where do I begin...
Ok you make this "review" now but I say you have not been there in YEARS.
First, if you are advising ANYBODY to go to Urban Assault, you have no clue what you are talking about. Paint prices at TRP are steep, I won't argue there but everything else is great.
My question is, did you just look at some old pictures of the place and just say "Hey I'm going to make a review."??? The Spool Fort was torn down years ago to make way for the new fort with actual walls, doors, crows nests, and ramps. Anyways in real life these spools do not have "one foot holes" in them, they are a few inches in diameter and yes people can shoot through them and yes people can shoot your feet. You were probably too busy being the asshat and blind firing and thats why you were corrected.
As for the reffs, I personally know them all and can tell you that unless you were running around like an idiot, wich in this case seems to be a very real possibility, they would have no reason to make "off-handed comments" at anyone. Again, have you ever actually been to this field? They are all cool guys and not a single one of them has ever had that attitude from what I've seen.
Arre you for real about the pro-shop comment? Furthering my theory that you havn't been here in YEARS if at all. I mean seriously dude, just look at the website, I don't even have to waste my time proving you wrong on this one.
"Besides the one ref theres usualy some stoner in the shack to fill you're tank." If you are going to take time out of your day to insult the staff, at least do so with some facts. Ok for anybody who actually frequents three rivers, we know you are only succeeding in making yourself look like an idiot. You're doing pretty good so far! Referee cut my velocity spring down to 180 bps because he thought he "Knew" my gun HAHAHA......wow. Yes, I am laughing at you, openly and I don't care. You, sir, are an idiot. Just a little FYI, TRP chronos at 280 F P S and field rules are Semi Only so thats about 20 B P S depending on your setup. KNOW what you are talking about before you try to insult a well run establishment.
Fields are 1, 2, 3, 3.5 (fort), Creekbed, (Tire, Rochy Road and Pine fields are rarely used), speedball fields 1,2, and 3. I can assure you that nobody has ever said that 65-75 degrees is too cold for speedball.
Go back to imagination land asshat while the rest of us, who actually know what we are doing, laugh at the utter stupidity of your "review"
