to the Field:
Use mapquest up there
Review: Fields- PSP world cup field, 3 man airball field, fort, hyperball, town, woods, concept one made of crates.
Safety- Perfectly fine. Nettings older but its fine.
Prices-$40 a case for decent field paint and $55 for RPS Premium cases. $5 field fee and $5 all day commpressed air. AND if you buy a case pops throws in free field fee :) but it is field paint only due to safety risks.
Food- There is an employee that cooks lunches and hot food items for decent prices. And its amazingly good.
Staff and Refs- Refs actually make calls, Pops is the reason I go. Hes one of the nicest guys in paintball. Everyone is Nice and gives Paintball advice and free tech. Casey is awesome and he fixed numerous guns of mine.
Hours- Saturday and sunday 9-5
Proshop- tippmans, ions, paint etc.. He can order you anything and he will help you with any problems you may have.
Players- Nice people. Always helped me out. None are spoiled bratty kids (like in newburgh) Airsofters come and play to but there actually cool
overall- This field has been here forever. Obviously there is a reason for that. The people and service and price ROCK. The fields are awesome. Its the reason I keep coming back to this field over and over because everything is perfect. If you are looking for a legit field here it is.

Review: Silver Spur, in Princeton, Indiana is the best! I love the range of field play,

-------- everything from speed ball, to woodsball, and even an x-ball field

And the staff is great. Pops and the rest of the staff including the refs, have done alot for me to help me improve my level of play.

Especially when it comes to maintenance of Markers. {Pops is a god when it comes to Tippmanns}

Pop's shop is always offering somthing to eat, and always has cold Gatorade stolked up, so you can play all day!!!!!!!! He evan has cheep prises on his rentals,and his air isn't exspensive eather. pops always has good paint, i like the Toxic he offers , and pops is always willing to help you with any problem you have.

The people that play their are great too. They aren't stuckup or cocky, but nice and willing to show you a trick or two that will help you get your next crazy kill.

I absolutely love the field, Especially the town level !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

GO to the senerio in OCTOBER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Review: I just played in the End of Days scenario game yesterday. It was my first time ever to do a scenario game and we were losing really bad first half of the game with the Russians leading the game 150k points and at the end we came back and lost be 8k points we had 251k points and Russians had 259k points. The end of the days scenario was awsome not many people there but there was enough to make it extreamly fun there were some people on the Russian team that wiped but when they got caught they got mad and left. I am going to do the next End of Day's senario.

Review: Safety the netting around the speedball field are blowing from wind so to take action we wear our masks at that time. Pop's and the team are very strict on safety it's his responsibility to make sure everyone has fun but he works one step ahead by helping others stay safe. They have rules like the 15 no shoot rule for guys and 20 for girls. They enforce a rule you must see the taget to shoot the target.

Fields hours of opperation the hours of opperation are great Tuesday to Sunday 8- 5 and he will stay open longer if the place is bussy.

Price You may think Pop's price for a gun is high but what if i told you that if you buy one from him you can waive your field fee for as long as you have the gun. field fee 5 dollars. air tank rental 5 dollars all day air 5 dollars 1/2 case of stingers 27.50 for me i go there and use 40 dollars (i bought a gun) that is alot cheaper than past experiences.

Rules 15 no shoot rule for guys 20 for girls. Must have goggles on in field area.

proshop SSP has a great pro shop gear guns parts and CERTIFIED airsmiths and help with not working guns.

Staff well what other can i say then great Pop's is the most caring field owner to safety and prices sometimes the prices are so low its seems he does not make a profit. And being a Vietnam vet he is determined person he worked for 2 hours get a unthreaded screw out of my gun yea and guess no work fee
Pete the concession guy live about a foot from the place always there and always cooking great food and a really funny guy.
Sean {Pop's son} helps with everything you need to know also helps manage the team.

Reff's always there and safety is there main key.

Everyone that goes there is always nice trust me you wont see a 10 year old kid running around with a new 08 ego there hard working people that play here and always there are no cheaters.

Facilities there are porter poties which are very clean always proshop shelter house

Food Great pete makes all the best stuff they always have large pizza's to make if asked

Review: My husband got me involved in the sport of paintball and I am addicted. We have been to a couple other fields and I was beginning to wonder if there was a place out there where a person could just go have fun without someone telling you, you have to join this group, you have to go here, you can't go there. Pop's runs the place real nice and neat. Everyone there is super nice, and this is one of the best places we have played.
We were getting real tired of playing at junky, under-run establishments. Pop's place is clean, well organized and the food is great. It's also affordable. We will certainly be back as soon as the weather allows.

Splatz Indoor Paintball in Evansville Indiana.
Directions
to the Field:
From Mount Carmel: Go 64 East. Right before Princeton you will see a Key Farms building. Shortly after that you will take a left. This left is between two houses.
Review: Alright first off I'm going to have to say that Pop(owner) is one of the greatest people I know in the paintballing business. I know countless times he's either helped me out or one of my friends out for free. The other day I took a friend there to get some equipment for his gun. So Pops gave me free air all day without the purchase of paint. I had about two cases left over from last time, this is why I was happy.
Lately when I have been there we haven't had any actual refs. Usually there were just uneven teams so one out of our group would ref the game, and his rules are strict. What's nice is that everyone there knows them. A video is required to be watched by first time players at the field. Usually everybody has each others backs and reminds each other when they're accidently breaking the rules. Say for instance not using a mask while chroning gun is a big one.
As far as his prices go. It's the cheapest cases of paint I have ever seen at a paintball field. His prices for upgrades and whatnot are not retail prices, but I mean give him a break he's got to make the money somehow. Pops will put your gun up for display if you want to sell it.
As far as the food goes. He has this guy in there that makes it all and sells it to us. I wish I knew his name, but I don't. He makes really good chili, and his hotdogs are nice and big. I've had his nachos with cheese also, and I thought those were just as good. Pops sales gatorade for one dollar, and what I think is awesome is that he sells bottled watter for 50 cents.
If you're looking for a good time then SSS is the place to be. Not only a good time but it also can be a competitive time as well. Since I live close by I plan on being there a lot. Maybe every other weekend and sometimes during the week. I encourage everyone to make it out to SSS. You won't be disappointed.

and checked out a lot of other fields
sss is the best ive seen by far
Review: Alright lets start things off.
Im one of those guys who loves to play the sport. I dont make a lot of money and im a die hard paintball player. At the spur the prices are outstanding. Its a $5 field fee, $5 for all day compressed air, and $5 to rent a c/a tank. Theres countless guns up there for rental for the day. Its only $15 to rent but you gotta use their paint they sell there. Thats really good compared to the prices of a lot of places ive seen. Theres 7 fields up there and for $5 to play all day thats an awesome deal. The hours there are great to Wednesday-Sunday from 9-5. The reffing was alright, just some guys that were sitting out jumped in and reffed the games we had played in. Some of the players got to mouthy at times and dissin other players cuz of their guns. The guy that owns the place is Pops, is an all around great guy. He knows exactly what hes doing there. Me and a friend went up there one day and it got hot so we went inside the pro shop and sat down and talked with pops for awhile about his business and about the up coming scenario game there. The food there is great, i cant ive had anything better then what they serve up there. The prices in the pro shop for masks, pod packs, barrels, body kits gun upgrades, etc. are a little high but you have lifetime warranty when you buy guns and high price gear there. He didnt have many new guns for sale when i was there, just a couple ions and a mini plus a used evil omen, but im sure if you would ask pops he could order one for you. All in all its a great field for any player with any expierience level. Well happy painting to all players.

Other Fields
in the Area:
Treehugger's - I definitely think Silver Spur is better than Treehugger's.
A friend's woodsball course in Seelyville - Can't really compare, I have to drive to Princeton for good speedball.
Directions
to the Field:
Easiest way to get there is to take US41 to the intersection that sits next to the TrueValue and Case III dealership and head West. Can't miss it.
Review: Safety - More netting than some of the courses I've seen, but it still needs work. My girlfriend took a rogue ball sitting at one of the picnic tables. If it had hit her face, I would have come unglued. Mask rules are enforced in designated areas.

Fields - A standup speedball course, a regular one, a Hyperball course, an indoor course, a Fort type, uphill course, and an uphill town course. All were excellent.

Hours of Operation - Open everyday except Mondays and Tuesdays, not bad.

Prices - Field fee of $5 waived if you purchase paint, all-day HP AIr is also offered. Great prices.

Rules - For the most part, rules are enforced to a "T".

Services - I truely believe that Pops places his customers best interests first and foremost. If you aren't having fun, it's his problem.

Proshop - Great selection, but they tend to run heavy on Ion merchandise.

Staff - All were friendly and courteous.

Refs - The referees were friendly and MATICULOUS! I mean, the way they checked me for a hit, I almost thought the guy owed me dinner. lol (A joke)

Players - Like any other field, no matter what you do, you can't keep the retards and asshats out. That's why God gave us ramping to bonus ball those tards, right?

Facilities - Clean, very nice, but netting really needs to be addressed.

Food - The best food I've ever had from any concession stand type establishment. Prices were low, too.
