Review: Very Large field!!! This place is amazing in the size of it!!! I went to Castle Conquest 16 as a pump defender. It was my first time to EMR and I had a blast for the most part. The field just has tons of area. I don't know how many acres it is, but I would think that it has to be about 100 acres!!! The Castle Game was very cool. The refs were knowledgable and fair for the most part and registration went pretty smooth considering the scale of the game.

The only real gripe that I was yelled at by a ref for removing my mask when I returned to my car (campsite) to reload on paint. I ran out of paint at the Castle returned to my campsite to get paint out of my car and reload paint. (EMR field paint) When I got to my car which was over 200 yards from the Chrono station near the rec center, and several hundred yards from the castle and any action what so ever I removed my paint splattered mask and was reloading tubes in the back of my truck when a ref 200 yards away a ref started yelling at me to get my mask on. I complied, but I thought that this fellow yelling at me (a customer) who was literally hundreds of yards away from anyone firing a paint gun for not having a mask on was ridiculous. I was in a camping area, not anywhere near any area that was involved in the big game going on at the castle, and I was over 200 yards away from the chrono station, that had netting 20 feet high around the entire area. The guy yelling at me for not having my mask on in my campsite was uncalled for, and overzelous in my opinion I can only think that he was just trying to exercise some authority or something, because I was not being unsafe at all. In fact, I am a very safety conscious player. This one little incident sort of left a bad taste in my mouth for the place, but aside from that it is a great field.

I give the field a rating of 10 if just for the sheer size of it, cool-ness, and being friendly to pump gun players..

I give the refs a 8 for their courtesy to customers - I realize that they have to keep order, and maintain safety, however they need to bust cheating players, and those who are truly unsafe (taking masks off in an active fire fight - not taking a mask off at your campsite, with the nearest action 400+ yards up field, over hills and through tree cover)

I would strongly recomend this field to anyone. Sure you have to use field paint but one must realize that this huge field likely has huge upkeep. It is a great field, and VERY safe. Just keep your mask on all the time... ;-)
