PostPosted: Fri Sep 02, 2011 11:55 pm    Post subject: A need to rant...

Ok so where do i start. ohhh where do i start?

First Impressions: a scrap yard looks nicer then this place. junk everywhere, most fields are tires and well some even have broken glass on them from kids vandalizing the windows in a few vans and cars that are used as bunkers. sheet metal bunkers.. I dont know if any of you guys have done sheet metal or metal roofing but that stuff is not nice and if not properly handled could do some serious damage to your body parts. ROCKS the field is littered with rocks and im not just talking a stone here and there im talking sharp jagged mountain rock!! try running and landing on your knees on that stuff :S. overall bad vibe already..

Safe Zone: so they have these cheap walmart 40' by 20' tent things with netting around them its latterly like a 80x40 room thats netted off.. can i bring my 1200$ gun in there. No im directed to leave it on the field actually was told to hang it by the trigger guard off a metal nail on some unsafe gun rack that looks like its going to fall over engineered by 3 tires stacked on both sided of a 2x6 and a bunch of nails pounded into it.. so w/e i take the scuba tank onto the field.

Game quality: well after playing capture the flag all day, i finally piped up and told the to start putting 5-15 min time limits on games and they actually listened. this helped make ppl move more and get the job done.. we are talking like a 500' field and ppl still at the first bunker.. my paintball gun at 295 wont even shoot that far off the break and well they are new to the sport so i guess i understand.. Reffing is not good either they use a loud speaker to sound the games etc and well after watching a guy grab the flag and bring it back to our base 4 times and the ref be over talking on his cell phone not even noticing the game it over to sound the horn i got everyone to play push the flag so this would not happen.. game quality is horrible and the best part is only head and torso shots count.. (i dont really care) but these are new players some girls etc and well watching them get hit in the arm or leg 3-5 times and them still play it just kinda discouraging. i actually herd ppl complaining all day about it...

Pricing: well this is the kicker guys, rental is 30.00 bux includes mask coverall and marker + 100 rounds paint is then 12.00 per 100 balls or 50 per 500 straight up to 200 a case :S now are we shooting good paint you may ask... nope it hotbox, stingers, and camotac all XO crap. worst part is i know the skid price lands him at 23.00 per case.. so hows that for a markup

Guns: omega bt's and some tippmans. marker hardly work and i know if i unscrewed any barrel there the thing was just caked in paint.. hows that for a day wrecker.. i asked if their was a chrono graph on site "whats that" umm you know i device you shoot over that safely tells you the speed at which the marker is projecting a paintball at. "o we dont have one of thoes" ... need i say more? well i dialed my marker to 295 the night before anyways.. but with different paint obv paint brand fluctuations can add or minus a good 20fps in either direction... i was planning on overboring but i couldnt do that due to the quality of paint and i still had a few breaks hell even a breach break on my clone.. :S

Conclusion: will i play there again YES i will as its 20 min from my house and i told the guy straight up ill give him 40 per case and hes still 2xing his money off me. i also agreed to just run games better / kick his reffs asses and get them to do their jobs.. but in all honesty do i want to play there no.. i feel the advice i gave him went in 1 ear and out the other.. tho he is going to invest in a chrono (thank god).

did i have fun. id like to say no. but there were a few games that were good. i also feel it really helps me conserve and work on accuracy.. sure i could snap shoot drills etc but its nice to have some moving targets that i can only hit in the head in order for it to count..

i found my ratio of goggle shots today was much higher then norm.. as i was not shooting at anything i could hit

i have never come across a field like this before but i guess there is a first for everyone..

Dude, that's tough. I hope the owner realizes what needs to happen to make the place safe and successful.

I've been to a place like that when I used to live in Florida. It actually made me mad how awful it was.

And not having a chrono is inexcusable.

the funny thing is this place will last long.

Whistler british columbia is a one of the top tourists attractions in the world.. and well advertising and marketing is top notch if he put that kind of effort into the field it would actually be something to talk about..

His flyers are everywhere. most bars have a 19" flat screen for advertising.. his short 20-30 second videos are on all them... i know that he pulled in over 3500-4500$ just watching what went on yeaterday.. and will he ever see this people again. Nope they will go back home and ill be the only one that knows how badly they were all ripped off Sad sad but true

wow no chrono.... I'm not sure I would've played due to that. I've been around db's shooting mid/high 3's and that's bad.

i would give him, in email, a list of the different fields across the county(in Canada too) to show how other fields set up the fields. chrono's, netting, safety. sure, he's in a great spot and is doing the hard part(advertising) already, but this guy can easily loose that advantage if he doesn't do it right.

you could help breathe life into this and make it a better place. call it midwifing the field.
