Directions to the Field:
99 north, take a right at the sign that says Nicolaus
Only played once at this field, but I will not return unless some easy changes are made.
The indoor field was small, about the size of a tennis court. Was fast and extreem but was too quick and no real strategy.
The outdoor fields were very nice, only one field was open at the time. There was alot of hiding spots, branches and bushes to hide behind. My only problem with the outdoor fields was the 1/2 mile walk in the mud to get to the fields, then having no covered spots to set up, no air and only one bench.
The people were nice and friendly, safetly first, and seemed knowledgeable, however the refs were not into the game (they didn't even watch, donno why they even have refs), and all games relied on the honor system.
All in all I would choose another field since the main reason we went was indoor and were dissapointed. If they had a truck and/or more benches and a place to setup in the outdoor side it would be much better.
They had 4500 air, but never set it up and only used 3k air.
Dispute: I am a frequent player at shootes and many of the other fields you listed. I play paintball nearly every single weekend.
Last time I was at shooters they had 5 or more picnic tables out at the outside field. As for the mud it has been raining outside the last few weeks. Also only one outdoor field was open due to all the recent rain.
They do have air fills at the outdoor field. They are only scuba tanks out at the field and I do agree thats a negative. They do have a compressor at the indoor field and sonetimes they do not like starting it if they do not have to.
High pressure compressors are very expensive and costly to maintain so I understand why it be a negative I alos understand why they did not run it that day and just used there tanks.
Paintball is a honor system. No ref can watch every player. I played at another field this weekend and two individuals walked off the field with numerous hits from me. The ref failed to notice.
