****ty attempt at a field. Who the **** uses woodchips for an indoor field?

Although my house is very close to there I choose to drive to a better field.

most guns wont even operate at 220? well at least spool valve guns, and you are right wood chips are not fun to play on...ive done it. But hey at least they opened an indoor for people to play at.

Yeah now I haven't been to this place yet, well not since it was a roller rink and I was like 12, but Magnum is less then an hour away from Plainwell and you get turf, a much larger field, cheaper prices and reball every other week.

Cool then go..No point in sitting here trying to persuade other people to go to magnum..If thats what you want then go..But this is a thread to get this field out there not for you to bash on them and there Choice of ground..Ive played on woodchips at Action Park in Indy..Its not that bad.

I'm just sayin its not the only indoor field, and that the field I mentioned has everything the others complained about. Also for the record I too was trying to get the word out 6 months ago.

I'll take the wood chips. I play w/NO pads at BallBusters and they are a MUST have @ the other field. I also play in cleats, can't @ the other field. I can actually take off from the start box w/o spinning like Fred Flintstone. Imo way more like playing on grass than turf.

I dont get what you guys are getting the 220 from but thats not true they operate out there like any other field 270-280 so whoever started that its not true.... and guys dont bash the field we're just trying to get the name out.

Im not bashing the field, I talked to the owner about 2 months ago and he told me that the velocity limit was between 220 and 230 for insurance purposes, thats directly from the owner. Maybe the rules have changed in the time but that is what I was told. Im prolly playing their saturday.

^^^ im not going to even try and argue with u but read the whole comment i was clarifying that the 220 fps wasnt true...THEN i put the .......to clarify i was done with that and then said AND GUYS please stop bashing the field so it wasnt about you it was the guys talking about everything else leave it at that its done.....THE POINT OF THIS THREAD IS TO GET THE NAME OUT AND TO GET YOU GUYS TO TRY IT OUT. Stop judging the field before you play here sure they have woodchips but the woodchips are like 12 inches deep...its not like its just 1 layer of them they keep them raked and even for the most part. I was skeptical about the woodchips at first as well but after i played it its not as bad as you would think. Also the field set up is alot better than it was before we did alot of tweaking to it. So whoever was out there before we made a small snake on the right tape (looking out the glass) and the half stand ups are on the left tape with a dorito in the middle of them. the 50 are two pillows. and there is a stand up back center to eliminate the lanes we had so open before (with the pillow in back center that u could crouch down and no one could see u off the break)

When they first opened the owner told me the same thing that they could only play at like 220 or 240 or somethin due to insurance, but they dont enforce that you just play like any other field at like 280, and the field is actually pretty nice. i especially like that snake side, i made a couple of run thoughs and bunkered some people on that side today.

oh and Bigbird, i'm pretty sure i saw you at best buy this weekend, on like saturday.

Most places especially new fields are scared for the "younger"/ "Newer" players..

Did you go up and bunker a kid with a rental? if ya did thats understandable.
