Review: The field(s) reviewed

Field Hours/days
Hours are 10am until 6pm on Saturdays and Sundays (also additional days for special events/groups)
They have specials for groups of 10 or more

There are more than a bunch of fields (vastly woodsball type) for which players to play on at this location. Each field had its own different feeling or attitude (a positive thing). The fields varied from flat terrain to a sort of hilly type with up and down bumps. We feel that there is plenty of variety available to suit almost every type of player. All of the fields that we played on here were very clean (as far as non natural items go, ex; trash, plastics, ect). The fields also were very player friendly, there were a variety of hides for players as well as a variety of sizes for the hides (so tall players will have an semi easy time finding things to obtain cover from without a lot of bending, twisting and uncomfortable positions from which to play from/in. My single negative thing I can say (and its more of a personal thing than a likely wide spread ordeal) is that some of the fields were a hike to get to from the player staging/prep area, this seemed to drain some of my energy that could have and would have been better spent playing, but again that is just a personal observation and not likely a widely held issue. It is not bad enough to keep us from playing there again.


Checking in

We were greeted with great attitudes and friendliness upon checking in. The checking in process was smooth and took a very short period of time due to the competence of the staff here. The staff was helpful in making sure that we had all the supplies (paint, ect) that we needed to play. There were a lot of people that either assisted us or that we dealt with during the day, but names are something that memory just will not hold on to, but we didn't meet, interact or deal with anyone that worked there with a negative attitude, they all had the a positive helpful attitude.

Staging area

This area is large and has roughly 10 tables for players/groups to store their items at while playing. The table area also provides a great shaded area in which to grab a rest between games or during a break. One large positive thing we can say about this is that the staging area for the players is located behind the main check-in building and we frequently saw employees from the field almost constantly around the area, so it was nice to see that there were people sort of looking over the players personal belongings while they were out playing.



Field personnel/Refs

We have nothing to negative to say about our dealings with the field personnel. Despite the younger age of our ref/host, he was both knowledgeable and helpful. He was also fair and unbiased when refereeing our playing matches. There were occasions when an opposing team/player had called for a paint check and the ref was right on top of the request. On many occasions, there was also a 2nd ref for the matches and even though we think that ref was a newbie/trainee we feel as though he did a good job and was also fair. Both of the refs we had for our matches were active, they were constantly moving through out the field and taking an active role in officiating the game being played.

Costs

The field admission price is $10 per player which includes compressed air for the entire day. This a field only paint field. For paint they have two options from which to choose from, the 1st option is the XPX standard paint at costs of $48 per case (and also buy the 500 ball bag) and the 2nd option is the XPX premium at $68 a case (also buy the 500 ball bag). We have experienced only vastly positive things with regards to the XPX standard paint. With a price of $48 a case it is very realistic in price for a case. We did shoot about half a case of the XPX Premium but for the price differential we just found it to be an added expense that is not necessary as the benefits we encountered are marginal at best

Rentals - They have rentals available (but as per their website and our experience) if you need a rental, its best to call in advance and reserve what you need. Rentals are priced at $15 for the marker, hopper, air tank, barrel bag and face mask. Additional items such as coveralls, pod packs and the like can be added as well.

Players
We have played at this field numerous times. The variety and quantity of players you will find varies each weekend. Based on our experiences there are usually between 15 and 25 players there during our visits, the most we have ever had playing was 40 on a Saturday and the least we have played with was 12 (one time).
As far a experience level(s), most players (60-70%) seems to have played paintball before and most of those players bring/own their own equipment.
As for beginners, this field does get those as well and our experience is that the beginners have been well mixed into the games.

Misc items

No flushable toilets, but there were 6 portable outhouses/johns there and while I have not used them, having walked by them, there was no noticeable smell emitting from them.

No food other than a few candy bars and the like as well as drinks are available, but I have seen others order in and have some pizza's delivered to the field so I am sure that is an option as well as cooking your own burgers and dogs via a grill

There is no proshop but I am sure they can likely handle some of the smaller common repairs

4500psi air is available at this field

They have the bang-bang 10' rule at this field and ROF is limited to 13bps and FPS is capped at 275

They take credit cards at the field as well as cash of course
