Other Fields

None that I was aware of during my time there.
Directions
to the Field:
Behind the golf course by the highway. That's all I can remember. Sorry.
Review: It's been a few months since I last played there, but this is what brought me into paintball. This is an awesome place with only a few negatives.

First the positives:
There are three fields there. One speedball, one wood, and one that's speedball-ish but made out of pallets. Except for the wood field, the other two were rearranged almost weekly which kept things interesting.Safety is a big factor, sit downs before the games to remind people of safety, everyone chrono their marker entering the field to try and limit last minute cheating, everything professional. Staff was always helpful, though sometimes annoying with their "Go to the next cover you'll be fine!!" Many of the staff and patrons were also ex-cops. It's a very safe place if you're worried about leaving your kids. They also hold events and raffles. Usually on every 4th of July. Don't expect to win a LUXE though.

Now the bad:
The field is hidden behind a driving range and mini golf course so you might miss it unless you know it's there. Also, the road leading to it is rough an unpaved. Don't try and bring a fancy car to the field to impress everyone. Just saying. Lastly, and this was a big problem for me, the owner was always looking for a good deal on paint and wasn't always concerned with quality. He's a great guy though. My last couple games there were plagued with ball breakage. I used my tried and true A5 there and literally every other shot would break in the barrel. Stock barrel BTW. Many of the rental 98s had the same problem. I suspect the paint to barrel match wasn't right but I never remembered to test it while I was there. Odds are they've changed the paint since then due to all the breaks.

Conclusion:
Excellent field and staff. The paint issue wa very problematic and wasn't addressed while I was there. It probably is now though. Overall, I'd play there still if I could. Usually a nice variety of people and games. The maximum amount of people I saw was probably around 60 or so and never fewer than 10. Even in -10F one weekend. Field was open every saturday and sunday. I think from 11am to 5pm. I'd recommend it to anyone in the area.
Great place+great people=great time.
