In Topic: First Strike Field Paint

we have a great mix of artificial and natural cover. Nothing is flat, lots of terrain difference. We even have speedball.

Eventually i'll clear out a spot to erect my airball field, but right now i don't have that kind of customer base.

I don't mind Fpo places but one near me sells 50 dollar paint for 85 it's fpo and the field is crap the rental guns are 9 years old their still shooting co2 and the fields are pretty bad they don't have an airball field, heck the place is run out of a trailer!


And did you read the thread to notice that it is specifically focused on First Strike Rounds?


I'm still trying to figure out what running the field out of a trailer has to do with whether or not is a quality park?

If the staff is good, the fields are good, and the prices are reasonable then its a good field.
Clearly you've expressed that they don't meet these requirements in that their prices are too high... but whats the trailer got to do with it?

My field has NO building what so ever. Why? 1) expense 2) we don't own the land and thus don't want to make permanent upgrades and 3) Its not necessary to our operations at this point.... Does that make my field substandard too?

that is a highly debatable topic.

what kind of game are you looking for? Woods? speedball? tourny? Scenario?

not that i'm encouraging you to leave your stuff unsecured, but in my 13 years of scenario paintball, i have found that the crowd is a lot better on this type of thing than you would expect. Very few things get stolen, lots of things get loaned out. I've loaned entire markers to strangers and had the same done for me. In fact, thats why i got hooked on scenario ball in the early days... the CROWD! Everyone was very helpful to one another because although scenarios are indeed competitive and the goal is to win, typically a player is not as concerned about victory as they are about having a good time. Without the victory pressure, you can really let loose and have a good time out there.

Definitely try to win. Pay attention to the objectives. Listen to the experienced players. THey aren't trying to be dickheadded commanders for no reason--many times they know whats going on. Do everything you can to help out and you'll have a great time at a scenario game.

Normally, i camp at the field when i go to a scenario game, even if its in my local area. I secure my things in a contico (big black box) that I have the option to lock. I find that just having things out of sight is enough to avoid a problem. Make your camp in a highly visible area and other players will watch-dog for you. Don't create a theft opportunity by leaving valuables out in places where they can be taken, but the theif cannot be seen. Common sense will help you avoid such problems as theft. Most theft isn't even premeditated, its simply a matter of opportunity.

At any rate, have a good time at your scenario. Enjoy it for what it is. Sometimes the smaller games are even more fun than the big ones.
