Then lay down a metal grid, consisting of 1ft by 1ft squares (or larger or smaller, depending on the turf to be used).
Then, lay down an artificial turf (significantly thicker than the metal grid, so that would never surface) in those squares.
This makes it easy to take a square of turf out, hose it off, and replace it, as well as making hosing down bunkers very easy.
I could be convinced to play almost exclusively at APC if this kind of a system were put in. I love indoor, especially in the winter, the only downside with any of the indoor places I've played at was the difficulty in keeping the fields clean.
And honestly, APC is an excellent field, with that one small exception. Tony and Lance are great, the staging area is generous, they've got anything you'll need onsite, and there seems to be a pretty steady flow of players going through there.
I honestly dont think you would know how long that would take, at least a week of nonstop work everyday between 3 people (kyle, dan, and myself usually, and for all u guys who keep b'itching about the fields being dirty, its paintball, so grow a pair and be willing to get dirty a bit, its paintball. And im in noooooo way directing this toward u Lomar, U had an opinion and u backed it up with pros and cons and i respect that, however this is directed to all the people who came in here and said two words "APC sucks". I would ask why they think that they would say the fields are small/dirty probably. Like i said above, grow a pair and deal with the very small mess (we try to keep it as clean as possible) and do u ever wonder why most the teams who play at APC rock all u guys? Its because of the small field, its teaches you better field awareness, smarter moves and, and how to communicate with your team. And if you come in their more than once and get to know tony and lance (and they like u) and you start helping out around there, the prices will start to magically drop, just like anywhere else, its called the real world. Also the people there are without doubt the coolest and nicest people i have ever met in my entire life. You will never find that at another field and to me, that makes it worth it. We all joke with each other like brothers and were all part of a family. Show up just one thursday night and I bet your opinion of APC will change. If you've actually come in before and don't like it, fine. Thats your opinion and its stupid to argue because u cant change that. Don't come back. And like brian was saying a few posts before, don't come on here just cause u dont have the cahones to go and say everything ur saying now, to lance or Tony. Because they have investing a crap ton of time and of their own money getting this place up and keeping it up. So all u need to grow up and respect that Tony had to sacrifice alot to get this place up and running.
