Would like to just leave it open for some time......

I live in Beaverton oregon and the closest field to me was xtremez indoor...
until it close last week!

I need to know! How do the busiest cities in Oregon lose a field every year??!!!

The same way businesses all over the United States are closing.

Bad economy=less players=less money for fields

Paintball isn't dying here. Portland Paintball died because it was a shit field with C grade service. Xtremez Closed because of a new aquisition, although it was a stupid one in my opinion.

thanks for all the replies!

I did some research myself and Impact action sports seems like the best field because they have xball.
The owner seems really nice and is really trying hard to get paintball back to what it used to be.

Also... Is action acres still open for business??

how are their owel tournaments???

AA is still open, but I don't think OWELs is anything close to what it used to be, Which wasn't much to begin with. Your best bet is WCPS beginner bracket, which ironically I can play in even though i keep up with the d3-d4 guys lol

qft

OWELS was the most fun i had ever had playing paintball that i remember i didn't miss a single owels for a year and a half because that was the only way i was able to practice back then once a month because Tourney ball is dead in medford. I actually didn't mind driving 5 hours to play fun competitive paintball. A couple of the ref's just got to power hungry with calls that would sway game wins pretty much when the game is already over. I saw some and got some insanely bad calls the last two owels events i attended. After that i just had to go further up north to have fun. I really hope speedball will pick back up again where i live soon. Its sad because there a couple 12 year olds trying to get the scene started where i live again but there aint more than 5 people that show up to speedball games let alone pick up games.
