Review: Let me get straight to the facts;

-All staff at this field do a GREAT job at enforcing safety regulations. First offense, you get a warning; second, sit a game or two out; third, you get kicked out of the field.

-In my opinion, this field is wonderful, plenty of strategy is involved while playing on this field. They quite often change up the layout of the field so expect something different every time you go. Although it can be a hassle for people who don't like hills. Me, I love them. Also, one more thing is that, playing during the winter can get messy. Lots of mud and it smells because of minerals and old paint. Regardless, that one time when I played and it was raining was really awesome, also because my lens actually didn't fog up in the cold.

-Hours of operation are about 0830 - 1530-1600 with the usual morning orientation. No matter how many times you've played or how experienced you are, you need to be at the orientation. Which is good.

-From past experience and being a use-to-be speedballer, the prices here are pretty good and the paint is average. Although price isn't too much of a hassle for the group I always go with. I play pump so I don't pay too much for paint, and we always bring our own air. So the only price I can conjure up from my knowledge is that entrance is $25 per person.

-Rules are high and tight, enforced from the get go and staff won't hesitate to yell to get your attention.
Chrono limit is 270.
All self-equipped players must chrono their gun everytime they bring it back onto the field. Rental players chrono their guns once in the morning, and once on the afternoon.
All of the other safety common sense rules apply on this field as should they on any other field for example: Barrel covers on at all times when not on the field, masks on in the field at all times, blind man rule, etc.

-The staff are all very nice and are willing to help with anything. Everytime I go playing with the group I usually do I always get banged up but I enjoy it all nonetheless. Like last time I went, I was sprinting toward the middle fort on the last game of the day to hang the flag and I nailed my elbow on a corner of wood. Got a puncture that had some good bleeding and I went to the shack and they cleaned it and bandaged it up for me.

-There's one bathroom there, and it's a port-a-potty. I don't have too many complaints about this but some people might be uncomfortable using it. Just use the bathroom before you head out to play. Also, parking can be quite a hassle since they have a small parking area, but the staff will help you get out if you want to leave early. One bit of advice that may help is that if you plan on leaving early, park closer to the entrance and if you plan on staying all day, get there early and park further in and also get your own bench.

-In the middle of the day, there's a lunch break. Two games before the lunch break you can make an order for food. They do some reeeeeeeeeeally good bbq there. And I mean REALLY good. They also sell drinks and snacks. Nothing too fancy, just the basics. But make sure you bring extra money for hot chow.


So all-in-all;

PROS:
-Great staff
-Great food
-Rules well enforced
-Fun field
-Dynamic field
-Great weather (most of the time)
-Everyone is really friendly


CONS:
-Some may find the outhouse disgusting and not want to use it
-Parking can be a hassle
-Hills may be a problem for people who don't cope well with them
-If you're a vegetarian you can't enjoy the awesome bbq.


So, that pretty much wraps up my review.
Overall, amazing field.
Oh, and one more tip, if you're plan on playing when it's warm out, bring loooots of water. I went through about six bottles in one day.

If you believe I missed anything, please state so in the comments.
