ZORN Monday, June 29th, 2009
Period of
Field Use:
Just once
Date There: June 27th, 2009
Paintball
Experience:
More than 5 years
Other Fields
in the Area:
Painted Forest (Lynchburg, VA) is best for recreational level woodsball. No airball or hyperball fields.

Paintball Virginia (Danville, VA) has several forts and bunkers throughout the property and a netted hyperball and an X-ball field right next to ample level parking.
Directions
to the Field:
From business 29, turn onto Mt Cross Road in Danville, VA. Turn left onto VA Route 1522, at the T, veer left then turn right into the old school parking lot. Drive between the trailers on the path down to the field.
Review: EVENT
Red-vs-Blue flag station domination event.

SAFETY
Masks on before you step past the netting. Mandatory chrono before the event at 285 fps. Chrono again after lunch before you could walk back on. Netting was in good shape. No serious bunker or fort construction concerns. No RPG's allowed.

FIELDS
The hyperball field was in good shape. The X-Ball field was regulation. The forts were both defensible and attackable. Bunkers were strategically placed. There was some undergrowth and roads to navigate. During the scenario event, there was something for everybody.

STAFF
Bart is very personable and was genuinely concerned that we were all safe and had fun. I consider him to be one of the better owner/operator I've met, and hope that his business can continue to grow.

REFS
These guys were outstanding. Bright orange vests made them easy to spot. They were super cool and in 90 degree humid heat, they're out there *running* onto the field to do paint checks. One even followed us into enemy territory, seeing that we were going after a flag for points. Good communication within the staff.

FACILITIES
Minimal. One porti-john. Downtown is just a few miles away.

FOOD
For the event, they offered some burgers and drinks. We drove to a nearby fast food joint during the break and enjoyed some AC.

CONCERNS
Ticks are really bad this year out in the fields and the woods, so be prepared before and after. The event attendance wasn't as high as I had hoped, but the staff adapted gameplay as needed to keep it fun and competitive.

PHOTOGRAPHY
One of the best parts of any paintball event is sitting around later and telling stories. What's better? Photographic evidence of your deeds (or misdeeds). They posted some really great photos of the event, and I encourage readers to check them out.

CONCLUSION
When I go back, I'm gonna drag the rest of the squad with me. Just a couple minor things kept this field from rating a 10 out of 10.
