Had a group outing at this field. Of the 17 of us, only three of us had ever played any type of paintball before. I liked the laid back atmosphere and the fact they were ready for us when we got there so after the safety briefing we could get started. However, I was dissapointed in the set up of the field. I was under the impression that they had buildings for woodsball but I didn't see any (maybe they are in the process of getting them). The paint wasn't very good, wouldn't break at all. This may be due to the heat because it was very humid but I wouldn't ever use their field paint anyway no matter where I was playing. The staff was not newbie friendly. The ref during the outing just kept yelling at people in our group about barrel condoms and goggles, I agree that safety should be #1 but there is a way to get that point accross than continously yelling at people. Maybe take the staff member who was yelling out the window and place him at the exit of the field to make sure everyone was compliant with the rules. The ref even went so far as to shoot a paintball at one of our people because he didn't put his barrel condom on (keep in mind the player was across the field and a game was still going on). I think this behavior would deter any newbie from ever wanting to play again. I really hated posting a negative review about a field as this was my first time in doing so. But I enjoy this sport and think field reviews should be utilized more.
Dispute: If you were being "yelled at" about safety, GOOD!
As for ANY REF shooting at someone for a safety violation, that should have been taken to the owners who WOULD have dealt with it immediatly.
The paint is always good quality when I go, Heat & humidity can make good paint into crap quickly. I don't play often in the summertime.
