Off the top of my head,
Directions to the Field:
Less then 1 hour from Grande Prairie, Peace River, Fort st john, Dawson Creek right in the North-Easter corner of the Town of Fairview. Walking distance from the Cummings Lake camp ground.
Over the years I keep coming back to Everyone Runs paintball in Fairview. They are continually prove to be one of the better fields in Canada. Always changing up the field and working on improvements. The clubhouse is great. Running water, means nice clean rental equipment and a real toilet.
Everyone Runs operates very smoothly as soon as you come through the door they have you safety certified, geared up and on the field playing. I have seen them gear up and field as more then 60 players with in 30 min. many times. (The big games are amazing)
The use of the barbecue and fridge is available to customers so you can bring a dog or burgers with you and cook your lunch or there's refreshments available to purchase. With lunch in hand you can watch the action in the town and air-ball field up close, from the clubhouse behind large glass windows with players as close as 3 ft away. All very nice and not found anywhere with in northern Alberta!
The Air-ball field is a typical mirror image arena with different configurations every visit.
The Town field is built from old buildings placed in a relative "main street" arrangement with the "church" at the top center. There's a couple school bus's and large spools, 500 gal tanks and such to suit any players plan.
The Trench field was dug a few years ago making a great maze of trench's and mounds built on top of a hill that rolls into a bush with dirt and tire bunkers providing cover. The bush opens up to an fort with a moat and bridge on the edge of the lake.
The two fields are bush in rolling hills with assorted trench's, forts and bunkers built making great playing areas.
I have played many fields across Canada and always have fun! Everyone Runs is defiantly committed to providing players with a safe and fun environment and I will continue to support them in the years to come.
WOW. I have never been to a paintball feild that didn't have paintballs before. You would think that running out of paint on a sunday would put off most feild owners. But I guess the guys at Everyone Runs have a different business philosophy. Aparently letting 20 people walk away from their feild is how they roll. Now mebbe if you had the only paintball feild for 100 miles, and your feild was some kind of hot sh*t you could do that. But seeing as they are in the middle of a rural area where anyone can play outlaw on their own land, and there is a small feild every 50 kms in every direction, I don't think that is such a good way to run a business. As far as the feild itself goes, it is pretty uninspired. Theres a "town" feild, a bunch of rundown sheds and a couple busses and assorted junk. They also have a "trench" feild, consisting of, you guessed it, a bunch of holes in the ground. Oh, and don't forget about the tires stacked up with dirt piled on them.
The staging area has loads of potential, with an indoor toilet, and indoor viewing area. Unfortunately its a total mess. So is the rest of the outdoor staging area, garbages overflowing & strewn about, bags of recyclables on the ground in a heap. Staff gives the impression they don't care what goes on at the feild. Sitting inside playing video games when players are on the feild might be a violation of your insurance policy. Seeing large coolers and expensive display racking sitting empty indicate that someone is just too lazy to want to make money.
Rumor has it that the manager is tired of doing his job, and maybe that is all that is wrong with the place. If it was cleaned up & well stocked, a little effort put into the place it could really shine. Fill that big cooler with drinks, set up the BBQ, clean it top to bottom, put free wireless in the viewing area for the parents, and you would have a license to print money. Unfortunately the half-assed business philosophy seems to be par for the course here in Fairview. I hope that someone realizes the potential they have on their hands and works to develop it.
I give this feild a 1. I have played at this feild more than 5 years ago when it started, and it was a good time. I still had a good time last weekend, but it is so frustrating to see something good be let down by poor management. I have more than 10 years experience playing paintball in Alberta. I won't waste my money & time playing at a feild that is a let down. Not having paint on hand on a sunday when its 28C & beautiful out, not filling air tanks above 2000 psi, not picking up garbage & whatnot, staff that just don't care. Its all a recipe for disaster. I will update this post if the feild turns around. Until then, my comments stand.
