Field goin in by Grand Island

Heads up! There's a new field opening this saturday (April 5th), at the corner of Alda road and Stolley Park road. That's about four miles west of Grand Island. This saturday, they'll only have one field going, but soon, they'll have at least 2 (one Inflatable air bunker field, and one with wooden spools, pallets and such.) I'm told an indoor year-round field is in the works.

Because the response for a new pb field was so strong, they've upped the starting date, and as such, they're only running HPA for this Sat. They should have Co2 very shortly, and there's a shop (Wayne's Pawn Shop, 2nd and Locust, downtown) that'll fill Co2 until then, though I can't remember when the store closes off the top of my head.

The field is Field Paint Only, and they're running Origin Classic and Origin Basic Training. For questions, call 308 - 381 - 1051, and that'll get yoou Wayne's, who's helping the field get going. Matt is the guy to talk to, usually running the Paintball side of the store.

So, head's up I'm right close to Hastings, and this is a helluva lot closer than Kearney.

I've heard bits and pieces about this, but I've got a few questions. Who's the field owner? Do they have a compressor or are they filling off scubas? Paint prices?

The owner is Andy Malcom, he has purchased a Compressor with 2 tanks for the field, and I don't know what the paint prices are as of yet.

Looking good so far. Paint price is the only thing really holding me back at the moment as I can get paint cheaper in Kearney than anywhere else.

If you mean Saturday, that will be an open practice. The tournament is Sunday.

If you guys have any questions, feel free to contact Andy at 308-383-7435, or e-mail him at hitormisspaintball@hotmail.com

As well, for direction the field is located at 6933 W. Stolley Park Road, Grand Island.

The field will be open Saturday and Sunday from 10am-6pm for this first weekend.

Please note that the field is still under renovation and that's why we're only going to have the single field open for this weekend.

Yeah, I just saw the competition over in Kearney, but I won't make it for that, I'm headed to GI. We'll probably fill up for ourselves at Waynes.

I don't think it's 35$, but don't quote me. I know Wayne's is selling the same stuff at their place, 37 (with tax) for the Basic Training, and like, 40 for the Origin Classic. I think the GI PB place is a few more bucks than that. Gotta make their money.

Kudos to Sean and Trix for additional info. All I know is what Matt told me briefly, and then what he told me when I called for more info.
