Xtreme Powerball (in Cornwall, about 10 - 20 minutes down the road)
Although this field has alot of potential, it falls severely short of ever achieving it.
Pros - Good outdoor field, well laid out with diverse terain
- Castle is an added bonus, not quite what you would expect, but a fort like building
none the less
Cons - Saftey is almost non existent here. Removal of goggles on the field results in the
"Firing Squad", which is just what you would expect, an execution type punishment
- The only barrier that exists between the field and the goggles off area is a low fence
with two horizontal boards ( A guy got hit in the back of the leg in the saftey area
when i was there).
- The main building, where you sign up, is falling apart, there are piles of unclean
equipment in the corner, the roof covering falls off in the wind, and the owner knows
almost nothing about his own buisness.
- Although nitro is available you need to call ahead, and even then its not for sure
So as stated above this filed is very lacking in saftey, and from what I've heard, thier only insurance is the waver. The rental equipment is horrible to say the least, mirages with hoppers more tape than plastic. The paint, i cant drone on enough about the paint. My cocker was crying because of it, some kind of scented zap that would bounce off a brick wall from 5 feet, if it could hit it.
Apart from the operation of the field, however, the actual playing area isn,t all that bad. Good for senarios i would imagine.
I give it a 2, it gets an extra point because of the field itself.
