I started playing PB at Liberty so for a long time it was all I knew. The place is huge with a very nice variety of fields especially woodsball. It is a little difficult to get to you must drive up a rutted dirt road that is a ski run in the winter. If there is snow you must ride the ski lift up and lug your gear. This is cold and inconvenient. They are very safety conscious. My biggest complaint is the refs. Too few and they only get involved if you force them. The act as if they don't want to be there. The players that come can be very nice and fun to be with or they can be wipers that ruin the day. It is a roll of the dice. At times it can get very crowded. The paint is very expensive.
Overall it is a good field for the pure variety of play but for the patrons and refs it leaves a lot to be desired. I have to give it a 6 for the fields alone.
Went back to Liberty this weekend, was pleasantly surprised. More refs and better quality. They seemed to want to make it a quality day. The game turnover was fast and we played a lot! The paint prices came down a little, but every little bit helps. Nice to see they are trying to improve things WIll be going back.

Played Liberty today Oct 29, 2005. Found the price of a case of paint down to $70 from >$90. A very nice change and you need it because they have the walk ons playing constantly. The game turnover is very good. Also the movement from field to field to give us the most exposure to all the varieties is really great. The fields are the best I have experienced. They had many more Refs out and about during the game. My only criticism is they abandoned the no auto rule. In the "old" days only semi autos were allowed. Now you can play full auto. The full autos really change the tempo of the play and really can be more dangerous. To be realistic, the autos use paint and the field makes $ on paint. I would like to see groups split off that only play semi and stock to keep the tempo nice. Let the autos sling the paint at each other.
