Review: If you love playing scenario games, you should check this field out. While it's not the biggest field you'll ever play on, they more then make up for it.

FIELD/S: Forest Fire has one big field that is split into two parts by a path that runs north-south across the field. The section on the west is the forest. This map is full of baricades, trees, bunkers and large stumps to hide behind. This map is also on a slight slope and at the top is a large bunker they call the Alamo, one of several main bases they have set up.

The map on the east is a large field with barrels and tubes to hide behind. The northern section of this map also has some marsh/woodland, so it's a good half and half map. At the far east part of the map is a large castle that lends itself to many of the games played. Note, both fields often get combined for games which is great fun.

STAFF: I have nothing but good things to say about the staff at Forest Fire. The refs, older teenage guys, are all polite, well mannered and do an amazing job keeping everyone safe and happy. Game turn arounds are short, with the refs giving everyone five minutes between games to refill and reload. I also have no complaints about the rest of the Forest Fire crew, those people being the field owner (Ezra) and some other guys that work behind the counter. This field should get a 10 based on staff alone.

PRICE/FACILITIES: This is one of the only fields I've been to where you can bring off field paint, so you save some money there. But if you decide to buy field paint, (dXs more often then not), their prices are well priced.
As far as staging room goes, things can get a little cramped, though things seem to improve every time I'm there. They have a newly built shack with a large overhang that covers about 15 wooden spools. There are more wooden spools spred throughout the rest of the area around the field. Spools fill up quick though, so I always try to get there early to snag one.
There's plenty of parking, both up and down the driveway and in a small clearing next to the field.
Pizza is ordered for the walk-ons most days and I've even seen a BBQ set up for some of the bigger games.

GAMES: Like I said, if you like scenario games, this is one of the best fields around. Not only to they have the oldies but goodies like Center Flag Push, CTF and Team Death Match, they also have a wide selection of their own games like Terminator, Alamo and Pilot Down. They also have prize games once every few months where you have the chance to win a new gun. But their big game is the D-Day Event, which draws 200+ players each year, from all skill levels. From amatures to pro players from DBS Kids and the Husky paintball team, this game brings em all in.
They break out everything from smoke bombs to tanks and rocket launchers. For this part of the US, it doesn't get much better.


PLAYERS: We've all seen it. There's always the one dumb*** that decides to come to the field and make everyone's day hell by swearing, cheating, arguing or just being a moron. I've yet to see anyone like this at Forest Fire, which is refreshing after seeing and hearing some of the things I have. There's also a mixed skill set, ranging from new players to solid tournament players. The refs do a good job of keeping the teams even (both in number and skill) so the games are usually pretty fair.

To sum this up, Forest Fire is an amazing field. It's a bit of a drive from Seattle, but in my opinion, it's WELL worth it. I'm proud to call this my home field and always look forward to playing there. Website is ForestfirePB.com
