Directions to the Field:
Its in Wilder KY next to the movie theater and sports complex
Well this all happened sometime ago, but I figured I'd write this anyways as a heads-up to others. I had heard about a new field in the area and I am always eager to check out new fields so I decided to give it a shot. The open play hours seemed a little strange to me, only open for 2 hours at a time, but I decided what the hell and headed on up. I got up there and was the first one there at the time dressed in a t-shirt and shorts. Looked around a little bit, it was a pretty good sized field with some bunkers, seemed nice and was a change of pace from airball. I go up and ask the dude if they expected anyone out and he told me he did...he initially seemed friendly. I go grab my gear bag and proceeded to unload it onto a table and I started to pull out my jersey and pants to put them on. The guy immediately comes over to me and tells me that this field wasn't for "players like me" and that he didn't like "the way we played." Now keep in mind that all I had out on the table were my pants and jersey. I tell him that if its just newer players I don't mind, I can just one ball it on them and won't play very aggressively. I had even volunteered to use a rental marker. Basically I had driven all the way out there and at least wanted to play a couple game and didn't really mind who it was with. The guy there still told me that I couldn't play and asked me to leave. So after arguing with him for a moment I gave up and left.
So that was a rather irritating experience, and the first time that I've ever been turned away from any field based on my clothing, or any field at all. So my advice to anyone that would like to play here that is experienced would be to come in a rather large group so that they can't turn you away. The field did seem pretty neat but as for me, I am not going back.
I am a staff member at Xtreme Paintball, and I find your comment distressing.
I have never turned any player away because of the clothing or gear they came to play with/in. Neither have I seen any of my coworkers do so. I would very much like to know who it was that turned you down so that I may bring this to light amongst my coworkers. We have let some people go over the past couple years, so the person who was stupid enough to turn away a player may not be with us anymore. If you happened to get a name or remember what he looks like, I would very much appreciate it if you'd tell me.
I sincerely apologize for the way you were treated when you came to have a good time playing paintball with us. I also thank you for bringing this to my attention, and you can rest assured that upon getting more information I will do all in my power to stop this from happening again.
