Directions
to the Field:
The roadway entrance to it may be hard to see the first time, but just look for the Madd Dogg tarp signs.
Review: Safety: Most players do not put on a barrel plug. You'll see markers on their gun stands without any barrel blocking device. Some people remove their mask in the field and that rule isn't strongly enforced. Crono'ing your marker isn't strongly enforced. Some people ramp their markers up to 16+ bps. They don't check air tanks to see if they need to be re-hydro'd.

Fields: Only 2 so far.
1. Airball: The snake is positioned bad. Can't get no shot off the first knuckle due to the lay down X at the 50. Must advance to at least the 3rd knuckle to get a good lane in. Becareful when sliding because you'll more than likely slide into your bunker and tip it over exposing yourself as a nice target.
2: Urban: very small field. you either love it or hate it.

Hours of Operation: no complaints. open throughout the day and at night? great for people with busy work/school schedules.

Prices: $15 field fee + all day air. what a bargain.

Rules: ?? what rules? All honor system. Yet people at the sideline or people who are out will "whisper" peoples position. Also people at the sideline will call other people out just because they ran out of air/paint yet that player hasn't called him/herself out. Big 'no no' because that player can still call out positions until being shot out or calls them self out.

Services: Paintball Leagues for different ages. Self Fill air.

Proshop: If they don't have it, they can order it.

Refs: what refs? Honor system.

Players: just like with any field you'll get the respectable people and just the total douche's.

Facilities: they have a women's and men's bathroom, just read the sign.

Food: they serve food there? well you can call the local pizza butt or papa johns to deliver. also since it is a small town, food venues are about 5 minute drive in either direction.



CONCLUSION: Field rating would be higher if safety wasn't an issue. nice that it is an indoor field. helps to avoid the hot weather and/or the blistering cold of winter. Field safety needs to improve especially with the chrono, since younger kids play there and for the new beginners that are coming into this sport. Can't forget those barrel plugs, once you get shot in the eye...

I would recommend to implement Agape, Splats, PRS safety rules:
1.Mask on before entering the field of play.
2. before entering the field of play, chrono check must be done.
3.Before exiting out the playing field, barrel blocking device must be in place.
