Review: I have been playing at this field for nearly 20 years. That in itself should be a testament to how great the fields are, the owners, employees, and the players who come out to partake in this wonderful sport.

Safety is a huge concern for the refs at this field, and they are not bashful to make you sit a game for removing your mask on the field. I don't see this as a detriment at all because in the 20 years I have been coming to this field, there has never been an eye injury!! How is that for a track record?

There are 4 large fields and they are used individually and in conjunction to create some different games than the normal capture the flag games at most fields. Uptown is a small fortified village with connected building, bunkers, sand bag pill boxes and a short two story tower. Downtown is a large village with 2 story buildings, full trench systems, bunkers, sand bag bunkers, and lots of natural cover. The Hill is a large hill outfitted with overhang bunkers, trenches, bridges, and lots of natural cover. the tourney field is a speedball based field with outlying bunkers so that the field can be used in larger game formats as well.

There were a lot of complaints over the last few years regarding pricing, so the pricing structure has been revamped and brought in line with all the rest of the surrounding fields. You can get a case of paint, air, field fee, and all day play from 10am-5pm for roughly 35-60 bucks depending on if you are a member or not, and if you bring your own paint or not ( that's right for several years this field has been a BYOP field! )

They get in a LOT of games as well. None of this 6 games all day crap, on average I would say there are 12-15 games run in that 7 hour time period. Lots of formats - Capture the flag, Center Flag, Attack/Defend, Blackhawk down, 30 Days of night, Gettysburg, Civil War, James Bond, President, Downed Pilot, Oreo Cookie, Navy Seals, Battonny thingy, and a bunch of others that Phil the head ref cooks up in his twisted mind.

They have water, Gatorade, and some standard supplies on site, no full fledged pro shop, but usually enough to keep your gun running and you in the game. on many occasions they have been known to hand out a free loaner if for any reason your equipment is not working just to keep you playing while one of the field techs works on your stuff. There is a bar onsite that serves up your standard bar type finger foods or several fast food, pizza places, sub shops, and grocery stores nearby if you need something the field doesn't have.
