Review: To start off with, I have played this field since 2003, I will admit that I have worked there since 2005 and currently manage field operations.During this time I have seen the field quality fall drastically til 2008, early 2009 new management and new owner arose, and the customers have been heard. I was encouraged to compose a review by a player that played often about 8 years ago til he was steered away by bad service. He came back and played about a month ago saw me, and remembered me reffing his private group years ago. He called me to congratulate the staff on the turn around and was surprised to see that they have not been any recent reviews, and that I should clear things up because of all the changes that have gone underway.

First thing that was changed was PRICING. Its has been changed to easy to understand rates, no more nickel and diming when your get there. Basically, for walk on play $17 for entry and all day air. $68 a case (still field paint only). Private groups $40-$60 (EVERYTHING needed to play) The price difference is depending on amount of paint and time. Pay attention to the website or facebook page for promotional deals.

STAFF and ATTITUDE, this is where the most change has happened. Our current reffing crew is almost entirely consisted with refs that have been brought up by new management instilled with core values. Favoritism towards off duty coworkers has been eliminated and if anything reversed, players are encouraged to talk to our refs and voice opinions. Our refs will always be willing to hear you out, respect is something we ensure that all staff has embedded in their job. If a ref disciplines a player, it is for the sole purpose of SAFETY or SPORTSMANSHIP

FIELD, The field is now properly maintained, grass is kept cut and hazards are removed or dealt with ASAP. We have cleared brush that was to hard to navigate through, added various bunkers throughout the field, We have also added self fill stations and converted the rental fleet to compressed air no more waiting in line for 20 minutes for a CO2 fill! Again air is included with entry, or $5 all day fee with certain promotional tickets. We also provide 4500psi fills for personal tanks.

PROSHOP, we have a retail store on Main Street in Hobart, we carry everything you need to get started, with a gun purchase you still get a season pass. We also offer a Club card in the spring that gives you 10 cases of paint at 50% off, great for the regular player. We also do gun repairs at the shop, if you run into equipment issues at the field, there are staff members that can help you with gun issues given that there are no special parts needed.

I encourage anyone that has not visited the field in recent years to come and check out the NEW "BlastCamp experience" and write a review on your experience, if there is anything you would like to recommend or comment on,either I or another staff member will be ready to lend an ear at the field!
