Sherwood- Great airball field.
Venture- Very similar but much SAFER field
Hayward- Umm SPEEDBALL+Bunkering! =)
This is a VERY large field... although it is large and could support 100+ people *which usually 100+ people show up everyday* its kinda tiring to walk REALLY far to your playing fort everytime not to mention as the amount of people alive gets low... its almost impossible to find anyone. The field itself has some good things however... first off, besides the forts and the occasional stacked sticks and tippees its almost like a natural field *meaning all cover are basically nature* and sometimes brush and tree branches are all the cover you can find. The Zulu game is the best and you can get loads of people with that.
Thats about where the goods end.... and the bads? There's a lot.
First off the rental equipments... SUCKS... i mean like they work like 50 year old guns that hasn't been lubed ever. The FPS of the rental guns can range from 150-350 and the rentals usually break down every other game. The charge a lot... i mean everytime i go there i cannot spent less than $50 because you either have to buy a bag of their paint or pay them $15 which is stupid.
Second thing is that safety issues... its really unsafe to play there, as much as "Magic" Bob tries to keep everything safe for everyone by enforcing the barrel plug and what not, my friend's rental was shooting at 350 at the chrono and the ref saids the following: Its fine... its a rental! and lets him go... WTF??? Also i see people dry firing in the parking lot as well.
Third thing is the hornets... are they really a "team"? No... their goal is sportsmenship... right? Well most of them DON'T achieve that. I have seen them wipe right before my eyes as I hit them and scream at them. They are just a bunch of paint wasters and lousy people who thinks highly of themselves just because they are "on" a team. Therefore they set examples to the new players to wipe off the paint... because on today which i went... i shot at least 6-7 people that should've been out but didn't cause they all WIPED... I did not enjoy seeing that.
I was generally dissatisfied with the field and wouldn't go back there unless something is changed to the field. I see people with bloody welts everywhere because some of the refs do not care if you shooting 350. This field is not worth my money... go to venture... they're in this for the sport.... not the money.
WHERE IS THE REF WHEN YOU NEED ONE? *all of the way across the field..*
