Thanks Harmon... Where is your team based? Are you in SW Florida?

Michael and I will be there Saturday and I think all three of us will be there on Sunday. Let's try to meet before registration. Maybe we can get on the same team.
Sort of starting our own woodsball team

There were about 60 players divided into two teams. We played 6-7 games with various objectives like secure supplies, kill a general (fixed target), or destroy landmines. We alternated sides for each game taking turns in sort of as search and destroy format.
The scenarios were interesting and well managed. Refs generally did a pretty good job of working the fields and monitoring the action.
The field is BIG – really BIG. And due the amount of rain we’ve had in SW Florida, it was MUDDY – I mean calf deep in many places! There is really on natural cover available; Just a lot of saw palmetto and some skinny pine trees. The field could use some bunkers, sandbags, berms or anything to help provide decent cover. This might bring the teams in a little closer to each other also. The players tend to sit back and shoot pods of paint hoping for a lucky hit.
Aside from the mud, It was a good time. There was food and drink available, restrooms, camping, air, tech services, and plenty of help from the staff and refs.
I still like the Allstar fields in Port Charlotte better. Allstar has more bunker, huts, crates and spots to bump into position. Smaller fields make the action more immediate and intense. But paintballpartyz puts in a lot of effort and they come up with some really creative ideas.
I’ll try again tomorrow!
