New Woodball Field in Fairfax County

I received this link in an email today. Looks promising. Growth in the industry is always a good thing!

^ It doesn't sound like it. It will be ran by two military vets, so its purely just rec/woodsball.

It is nice to have a field in the middle of Fairfax, unfortunately that means they will be taking a good portion of business from Hogback and Pevs @ Aldie since I would say the majority of players at those fields live closer to Fairfax than actually in Loudon.

What I would hope to see in the future is perhaps contract with Pevs and let them run the operations. This will allow the field staff to be populated with paintball enthustist with the intrest of growing the industry, not just making a few bucks to cover the cost of property tax.

is this true? Pevs in Woodbridge was the first field in the area and in Fairfax County, unless it was right on the boarder of Prince William County.

I saw that the other day and I am very excited. I can't wait to see what they come up with. Some players from the old YPB group (Goblin, Gunner), they dropped out because they liked the woodsball format. I think that this will get them back in the game!!

I actually hope that they don't partner up with Pevs. Although I do like Pevs, I think that it would be better for them to keep their operation separate and keep a more intimate feel. If Pevs got in it, here comes the $80 field paint!

Another field supporting woodsball would actually be nice to have. I remember when "AG" was around. I really enjoyed those fields.

You guys should consider doing Living Legends in May.

AG, VAG, and Hogback were all with in a few miles from each other, so many options back then!

It was in Prince William County. The county seized the land that field was on by eminent domain. Some of the structures are still up there. They use it to store/house county vehicles.

This will be run by the people who own the land and their folks and not Pevs. They have their own field.

Not likely. They're not looking to clear land to put one in. I think Warplay is kicking themselves for putting a turf speedball field up. People told them to put it in and the tournament guys would come out. It hasn't happened, and yet, all the woodsball/recball players still come out.

Most people don't realize that speedball/tournament style ball isn't a huge money maker for most fields. It's the rental players/recball players that provide a substantial portion of the business to most fields. Frankly, if I were opening a field, speedball would be the last thing I'd put in.

Definitely interested to see if they make it field paint only or not.

I think this field may actually have the potential to bring some major scenario games to Fairfax County. From the Google Map perspective of where this field is located, if they set the field up correctly, it could compete with the likes of The Swamp, Splatbrothers, and OCXX for major scenario games (Hogback just wasn't feasible for a "REAL" scenario type of game. Those of you that know what I'm talking about, know exactly what I mean.) If this field were to be set up right, they could get NATIONAL attention, just as Splatbrothers did in their hay day and like The Swamp and OCXX is getting now.

Not lately, but I'll be back out here in a few weeks to start prepping for Living Legends. Even with 2000 people, there's plenty of space/room to maneuver in the woods and across the field of play. CPX is rather large. Plus they have a separate skirmish field that takes 200-300 people per skirmish battle off the main field of play. After the YPB-WOA game in 2008, LL was probably my second favorite day of paintball.

I grewup really close to Clifton, very near where they want to build that field. The roads getting there are a little 'shady', meaning narrow and windy. But, the idea is a real winner! I hope they really make a strong run at this. Don't skimp on parking, make some reasonable bathroom facilities, and donb't overcharge for paint. I'll definitely be there on a regular basis!!

I haven't heard any updates. Maybe I'll go drive around there, next time I'm over that way, and see for myself. I'll post here if I get any news.

From their page

Good afternoon,
Well, my assortment of engineers, surveyors, and myself turned all our new plats, statements, etc. into the county this week. Hopefully this time will be the charm as far as meeting all the county's department's requirements. If they're good, then it's on to the BZA hearing next month. Good thing I'm so patient (big fat lie).
I hope everybody had a great Memorial Day weekend. I finally have an acoustic engineer to do the sound test for me. It will be on Saturday, June 21st at 9:30AM. We're going to test each make and model of marker, then test everybody together from several distances, and then we'll move into the woods and play several simulated games. It's up to you guys to what degree you want to simulate. For any of you guys that can help, you need to bring your gear, including air, markers, goggles, and please bring an ID since I have to get you to sign a waiver (of course). Hopefully we'll be done before noon and everybody can stay for food. Since I only get one chance to make a first impression, the food will consist of a couple of things we'll be selling if we get to open. If you can make it, please let me know so I'll be sure and have enough paint and food.
Thank you,
Jeff Waters

Is June 21st open for everyone for the acoustic testing? Will there be air fills and BYO paint?
