Hey everybody! SOF IS THE BEST FIELD ON THE HAMILTON-WENTWORTH AREA.There us nothing wrong with the field.There IS however 1 down side to the field there is no real entrance way that is obvious to the eye.You have to travel all the way down to the end of English Church Road.All and all GREAT WORK VINNY I'Ll see you this season!
So far just Ultimate Adventures (Kleinburg) a few times
My only BAD note: SUPERVISION
- unsupervised "young" players (thirteen year olds who either did not hear the rules, or were too immature to abide by them)
Example 1) dodging off the field out of bounds then running back to shoot at you further down field.
Example 2) a buddy of mine bunkered a kid who asked for mercy. Once mercy was granted the kid immediately openned up on him.
Example 3) saw out-of-play kids calling out to their in-play buddies.
- maybe there should be something about anyone under 16 maybe not being allowed to play without an adult present
- great location (once you find it)
- great prices for play AND paintballs
- the front staff was very knowledgable and courteous
- I liked the spirit of the older players helping out the younger ones (mind you not the same younger players mentioned above in the BAD points)
FlagRaiders which is the best ( a little pricey)
Ultima very well rounded field
By far this has to be the most disorganized field yet. We arrived at 10AM, paid and walking out onto the filed. Our first game was not 11:45. All we did in that time was cronie our guns and get air/paint. All and all a very disappointing day. bellow is some issues I had with the place:
*Most of the day we spent waiting for fields because there was no communication between refs.
*Rules of a game were never explained fully.
*Safety did not seem to be a concern. Games are going on 10 feet from the air shack and nobody was waring a mask or even asked to.
*A few Regulars seemed to have markers shooting over 280. However they did ask us to cronie but they never looked at my guns speed and only looked at a few others.
*A lot of blind firing was going on, (I asked the ref during a game to address it with one player who was right in front of him) This rule was never explained to us
*There was never a safety speech. For people who play, we all know the speech but we were playing with a few people who was there first time they had no idea some of the basic rules.
*disorganized game play
*With paint only being 8/100 it was really good price, even cheaper for a case
*The owner was very nice and helpful along with all the staff
*Small place with 4 fields but they are good. Open bush ball, nice town(small), ok speed ball, Cool hill valley.

Sof is not a perfect 10 it has blaze paint at a tourny for 90 bucks a case i can get better paint fopr 60 bucks a case and im 16 yr old. sof has one or two speed ball courts that they r always changing nothing is ever the same the hill field is smaller then the speed ball court its horrible the small bush field is alright thanks to max the jungle has buildings in it the bush ball tourny this weekend has a pj jerseys for first place ur pay more to play then u would to get the jersey i give sof a 4/10
I don't know about people who rate SOF lower than 9. most likely they haven't been there in the past few months.Everything has improved.THey don't really have a pro shop but they do sell good guns for a insanely low price. And the owners Vince and Matt lay to nad give helpfl addvince. My o ring on my gun broke so they even gave me a free o ring and a discounted price from buying my sisters gun their.The service is great the fields are great the refs are great.
THere's nothing wrong with the field & they sell guns even cheaper
(for the people who say that you have to wait 30 mintues between games are WRONG!!
you only have to wait 3 mintues MAX! BEST FIELD IN HAMILTON AND TORONTO KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK VINCE & MATT

Sgt Splatters, and some other crappy place in Stoney creek, I forget the name, but it sucked.
I really don't want to go anywhere else but Sof nowadays. Its nice and close, the refs know what they're doing. They've just updated their feilds and they're more awsome than ever. The prices are really low, 8 bucks for 200 rounds, and you get a free 100 rounds once you submit the entry fee. Most of all, it's fun. They have scenario games now and then, and I highly reccomend showing up. You can win prizes by raffle on the scenario games. I've won a few cool things, like a raven touque, and the Raven Backpack. They also sell things for real cheap, 12 ounce co2 for 25 bucks, while other saps are paying 45 bucks at some other shop. It's all outdoor.
If you live in Hamilton, or near Hamilton, this is the place to be.
Paintball Adventures (sucks) Sgt Splatters (ok) Bone Yard Paintball (in BC, lol)
SOF is an Awsome Field, the service is incredible, the prices are Cheap, an the Fields are Amazin. The First time I played there, it became my home field, as well as my friends. I went to 2 of there Scenario Games, Alien Invasion, and Broken Arrow. Both Rocked, and were surprisingly well organized even though there was one ref for every 20 people. They could atract even more players if they advertised more, an when u first go, dont be hesitant because of the appreance, Its still an Awsome Hidden Gem.
SOF Paint ball is the best paintball feild i haver ever been to. the staff is soo nice and the owner (Vince) is nice. the prices are `very cheap 8$ for 100 balLS AND 35$ 500 BALLS for renters the price is 25$ for the standerd price and for gun owerners ot is 10$ the other frils are 30$ and up and you dont have to pay for co2 refills at sof
SOF has to be one of the best fields i have played at. The staff is great and are very nice. Prices arnt too bad at all. Everytime i go back they seem to be doing something to make the place a better more enjoyable place to play. They hold yearly scenerios and Tournaments. Like alot of ppl have said the field doesnt look like much when u first pull up but trust me once u start playing on one of there many Huge fields youll be happy you stayed. Great job guys keep the up the great work and see you all at the SOF Fall Scenerio Broken Arrow Saturday September 13th. check out there site its jsut been redone and is running and looking good
