PAG- Have not played
Young Guns - Have not played, but am next month, will update
Screamin' Eagle - Decent field, Enjoyed the time spent there. paint is costly for some, decent rental gear, had a good day out there... can see some improvment in some fields maintance and repairs on the houses to fill cracks to prevent crack shooters in the town.
Directions to the Field:
20 min north of Waskateanu (the big petro canada on HWY 28
20 min south of Boyle and right beside a campground and a 9 hole golf course! :) GOLF FISHING CAMPING AND PAINTBALL! No one else has it this convient!
Food: a nice little concession on site, nice basic foods, they can cook quite a bit of normal camp style food here for ya and have a nice selection of beverages. They have a BBQ that you can use if you are booking a larger event, along with it is a bring your own food, and cooking tools... so come prepared if your BBQ'in burgers or hotdogs... :)
**EDIT** screw bringing your own food! go to their concession, wonderful people and amazing food. bring cash cause i did not see debit, taco in a bag (best investion ever) is 5 bucks, get one or two!
Safety: never been to a safer course. good coverage of mesh, picnic benches everywhere for you to sit and they are all protected. the refs are good to ya as well, and STERN! don't break the safety rules or they will not hesitate to bench ya and take away the marker! i like hearing that.
Fields: Wow! i played their junkyard, Town, Tire bunker, and their towers/Trench field. they were AWESOME! Well planed out, well placed bunkers,
Their airball field is well maintained, good grass, fill station convience during events, nice large area for tables, a very safe and nice set-up
the junkyard has two buried buses! be careful on the junkyard as they are old vehicles so there may be sharp parts on the bunkers, but honestly, you should not be on top of the car for very long if your up there... :)
The tire course is smaller and perfect for a 5 v 5 or smaller game, we played some 3 on 3 and 2 on 2 games there... honestly, my favorite field for smaller groups!
the trenches we saw a 6 v 6 fight and a 9 v 9 fight, so much fun... i gogged a few people and got a guy in the rear! just to be eliminated by the opposing team in a very well executed pinch. this field is large enough that pinches, hopping bunkers and trenches and excellent teamwork can push out gunned teams to victory! :)
Their town is without a doubt a very impressive field. VERY well built buildings, sturdy, clean, safe to play in, no crack shots can happen here... WATCH YOUR FEET they have some houses that have holes made at foot level... i pegged a guy in the toe through one. this is a very very fun field to play.
They also just opened a new "fort" field... it is massive and looks very very impressive, never got to play her though...
**Edit** went and looked at their fort, never seen nothing so sexy... need alot of people to shoot that baby up though... Walter is still working to finish the inside but it is functional.
Hours of operation: they operate at the times you want to play, and they shut down when your not supposed to be... we played at 8:00 p.m. and they open at 10 i beleive, as long as there is a ref avalible for you to play and the ref is willing and its safe i am fairly certain they will let you play
Prices: they have 4 types of field paint that is good to great quality, i shoot their red legion, and it works very well in my A5, very nice prices on paint as well,
**edit**they removed red legion and put in a paint i forget the name of, but it is similar grade cept breaks easier, they also have formula 13 and marbalizers as a mid and high paint respectivly**
Services/proshop: these guys will do anything they can to make your visit perfect! i arrived for my first game there with my A5 and a Co2 marker, i registered fairly quick and easily for the amount of people there, bought a new barrel with ease, and when i went to get my paint from their paint window, i asked the gent there where i could get my Co2 tank filled. he told me to give him my co2 tank and he threw my name down, and lended me an HPA tank for the day as there were HPA fill stations out in the fields and he did not want me running back to the proshop any time i needed a fill... that is service. they have a gator transport if you have alot of gear you need brought in from the parking lot, they will get you to load it in and then take it down to the staging area for ya. wonderful staff!
Staff: these guys rock! they work with you, not against you. they work to make your day enjoyable, they are a fun group of people, the refs could joke around. we were not playing serious ball, and BANG these guys were on our page. they took safety serious and that was it... we were out for fun, and they made sure we had fun while abiding by their safety standards. The refs treated each other and all players with respect as long as we showed it to them. Don't mess with these guys, they are good ones!
i cannot say enough good things about these guys. i drove 2 hours each way to play here, and i will be doing it again and again. i am off to their field for their events soon, as they host three or more speedball events a year. they will probally be hosting a few milsim style games as well, with their new fort and all.
Watch for these guys to be headlining magazines soon as a great field to play on. they rock so hardcore!
**EDIT** Edits are marked clearly, nothing bad added though, only good... was just there this past weekend, am going again this weekend... love this place...
