Directions to the Field:
5 north, get off on parker, make right off the offramp and go straight for a long time, if you think you missed it and want to turn around, keep going straight. look for sign, its the only one anywhere along that road.
This is pretty much what i consider my home field. i go probably 3 or 4 times a month, more than any other field i frequent. here's the particulars:
Drive and parking: paved road all the way to a dirt parking lot. drive carefully and you wont scrape.
Price: $15 walk-on and $10 for all day air. i wouldnt buy field paint anywhere, but they prolly rape you slightly less than anywhere else for it. if you bring a friend, they might even get a rental marker that works, which i cant say for alot of fields.
Amenities: 2 porto potties and lots of bushes, dominos pizza and burgers cooked on a george forman grill, cold drinks, various junk food snacks, shaded benches and some spools to sit, chill and work on markers.
Air: self fill for 4500 and 3000 HPA. the 4500 gets at least 3500 all day, which i cant say for alot of other fields.
Chrono: they chrono everyone at the beginning of the day, but you could easily cheat and turn it back up. i've never seen anyone randomly chrono'd or checked for shooting hot, and guaranteed some people are. i've got some bloody welts and light scars to show for it. stuff happens. oh well.
Fields: 2 airball fields (usually occupied by various teams) 4 rec fields of decent size to accommodate 25 on 25 consisting of spindles, man made barriers and structures, and decent topography including ditches, hills, a ravine, etc. and one honest to goodness woodsball field about 150 yards by 50 yards with mostly thick bushes and couple bushy trees.
Players: there's no where as many people as you see at sc village, but there's never a shortage of players either. you get the full gamut of people, lots of teams practice here weekly, lots of kids, families and newbies, your occasional troublemaking youngsters, and a bunch of us weekend warriors. i'd say players on the whole are nicer on average than the general population, but there are exceptions.
Staff: i'm pretty happy with the staff. they are all high end team players and the owner is an old pro player who's played on some of the best teams in the history of the game. the refs are probably more likely to check hits than you would find at most fields and are pretty thorough on checking people for stupid things like taking off masks, barrell plugs, blind firing, etc. a ref even broke up a fight on saturday and talked down the aggressive party who got overshot and cooled him out, which i thought was solid. a paintball field isnt the proper venue for cracking heads and splitting faces.
