Review: We had a group of 4. 3 adults (28-35) and one 12 year old boy. This was my first paintball experience at an actual field, and overall I was very impressed. The staff was courteous, mature, very helpful and most of all fun. For the new players they even took the time before matches to take questions about field layout, tactics, and rules.

One guy in my party lost a small internal part to his marker on the field (completely snapped his stock) and by some miracle one of the refs (the main one) found it. They were also constantly helping people who had any technical issues with their equipment, which was a breath of fresh air.

Fields...
We primarily played field #1, which turned out to be a pretty nice field for woodsball. There was a lot of great natural cover and some well placed bunkers and pillboxes. They had also built several wood pile and limb stack walls, which felt right for the field. Sometimes they were hard to see from a distance and provided great sources of cover without feeling too man made. It had a large open area with trenches on one side and an awesome high / low creek kind of feel (not much water though) on the other. My only complaint about the field is that one side seemed to offer a lot more options for cover, while the other was mostly natural trees/brush kind of cover. I'd love to see the field balanced a little bit more. Lastly I think base structures on each end would have made for much more interesting capture the flag games.

We also played one game on their "embassy" field, which from my understanding is a new field they were experimenting with. Basically this is an attack and defend a center structure scenario. It was very hot so this field was pretty miserable because of the heat. Playing it mid day sapped what energy I had left. It was relatively fun, my only real complaint is the lack of a roof on the building. It made it far to susceptible to grenade attacks. I would suggest a few more doorways/windows and maybe a partial roof.

Overall Pro's: Great staff, I would go back just for that. As a first timer I think this made the biggest impact. The field looked well kept.

Con's: The team armbands were green and brown, so distinguishing team mate from foe mid game became much more difficult. Lastly there were a lot of very small kids, and while I know they like to play too, in ruined a little bit of the fun for me, since it was generally unorganized and there tended to be a lot more friendly fire. Splitting up into two smaller groups would have gone a long way. The kids would have probably had a better time and lasted longer in their games, and the adults wouldn't have had to worry about hurting them, running over them or getting shot by their team members as much. Also I don't think standard gun safety was talked about enough. I don't know how many times I had a 10 year old kid holding a marker pointed straight at me from a couple feet away with the safety off and a finger on the trigger.

Note: If you go get them to play "VIP" as much as possible. This game is awesome, especially when your on the team with the VIP. Dual VIP's would have also been cool, but they didn't try it.

I am going to give the field a 10, not because I thought it was perfect, but because what they lacked in field balance and team set ups, they more than made up for with their wonderful staff.
