swift and snmc
I am new to the area. I just got here from Tampa (MacDill AFB), FL about two months ago. I was just out at DZ today and really enjoyed it.
Yes, it is on Ft. Lewis Army post. A co-worker of mine (who just bought his first marker) and I were out looking at fields and stores all day. The management at DZ was very curtious and let us watch a few games. Our escort (ref) showed us all the fields they have and gave us a brief history on the field. DZ has been in business for five years. They have three fields...one speedball (large), an urban setting and a wooded field. All were very well kept and they even offer a concession booth doubled with their pro shop on site. They charge $12 for all day play with CO2/N2 refills going at $3 a pop or $5 for all day fills. They rent Tippman 98's and you can upgrade and rent an Impulse for $40 which includes 400 rds, mask and air. I can't remember what the 98 rentals cost.
The only catch is it is FPO and they sell Proball....$80 a case. The paint cannot leave the field, per military contract. So they have a file system to keep track of any paint you have left over and the next time you come out to the field they check your file and give you the remainder of the paint you paid for.
If you guys would like to ever meet or play together, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
or catch me on AIM as havenway, and we can arrange to go play wherever you would like too. I have been playing off and on since '95. I only got to two fields today and heard that SF and KC are really nice so I'll have to check them out soon.
