why i wont return to ixp

First of all this is not smack


not a very good day
people had their masks off on field most of the time between games

the players who had no care about walking around staging with a fully set up gun without a barrel bag acting out the games even after we said something twice to the player with the red and gloss purple ego

not to mention all the people who were talking about the bonus balling


im sorry and i really hope you do well with your business but i will not be returning

Wow that sucks to hear i enjoy playing there. You do have valid points though, i know Kevin trys very hard to keep it safe there but some people just dont understand why there is a rule about masks. I have never had a bad experience at IXP, that being said, i always have to get on to people about masks and bags.

Well that hurts. But I wish you would of said something today to me personally not on here. I would have fixed it right then. And I know for the first games that everybody played right cause I was out there untill the birthday party showed up. Then I ask the Players to ref their own games and you guys said that was ok And maybe thats when it happened. It was practice thats why I sold paint to you at $35.00 a case just like CTS practice you ref the game after yours. Sorry you had a bad day here.

There have been kids shootin a gun out in the little river thing and I think that needs to stop for sure. but other than that I have always heard people enforcing the rules there. maybe there was just a lot of noobies there today and that can be hard to keep track of and keep on everyone all the time.

yo man, ive been reffing rec paintball for 2 years now, and at the buisness i work at weve never had an incident in 16 years. Why? we brief, we have insurance guidelines but besides that.... we brief before customers get their equipment, and we brief them before we head out to the fields. We do it alllll day long....everryyyday. Safety before fun....always. And at the end of the day everyyones had a blassstttt. We get compliments on our ref staff all the time for this

Edited by Moderator: Please don't advertise your field in a thread that is about your competition. Thank you

Well we have never had an accident. We inform every player about safety rules. And even if there was an accident which there hasn't been; we have a Critical Care Registered Nurse on staff. Besides, I have talked to this guys team and they said he was mad because he played D-1 X-Ball and was getting beaten by some kids just getting started. And I give Flip Syde Props, also Lights out for the great games. They played awesome today.

Ok Kevin has a very valid point......you should have said something to him in person and yes he would have quickly took care of things. There were quite a few people there and kevin had a birthday party as well. He's only one person he can't be everywhere at once. You telling the kid to not be horsing around like that is I'm sure is very appriciated by Kevin same as anyone else out there helpin Kevin out by keepin your eyes open for people not following the rules......Now as for the kid with the ego I know him he is a good kid but has a little bit of a listening problem and he gets told all the time. Im not trying to make excusses I'm just trying to shed some light on what happened. Yeah I think everyone caught some bonus balls today its paintball it happens. Now as for this not being smack.....when you post something on a web site that almost every paintballer in the whole entire frigin world is a member of and its just bad crappy things (I understand you had nothing good to say you had a bad time) its kinda smack. But anyways I enjoyed playing with you today and hope that you talk with kevin and get things sorted out.
Also this is not ment to be rude or sound like I'm being a smart @$$ if you think it is I'm sorry. I was there today and saw what happened and I'm not the owner or the plantiff I'm just trying to give a different point of view.

Are your refs paid?????? Your post makes me think they are. Refs at IXP are players who are just trying to help out and yeah sometime there are no refs and you just have to be an honest player. I'm sure if Kevin paid people to ref it would be a little different. And your comeing into a thread were a problem is trying to be resolved (I know it should be done in person and not here) and useing it to advertise your own field....that pretty rude and low and I've never seen you post about IXP or know if you ever played there before its almost like you instagating something.......

rules r told at every field to all the players b4 hand yet how many ppl forget the plug rule. i for 1 have to tell ppl after a game because of all the excitement they just had and just don't think about it. it just happens and it will always (at every field) as ppl just don't think at times and it's not just in paintball. players that ref themselves r for the most part the best players to play with and if some1 forgets there plug or mask then players r there to remind them. refs paid or not can't c everything or b everywhere and at allot of places r rude to ppl. i wasn't there but i have been in the same situation many times over the last 26 yrs and it has been the same at every field or event that i have been at nppl & psp included.

the only reason i didnt say anything was because we all just got tired of eeverything and just left and i didnt see you on our way out and i also couldnt ind your name or i would have pm'ed it to you

and btw the guy who kept walking around staging without the barrel bag was your cup team player

which guy or team where you? I played all most all day yesterday and I saw no one get bonused balled, so I guess I am not sure what you are talking about.

I did see people with no barrel bags on and I remember telling them to put it on. I also remember about 3-4 people shooting there guns over the chrono and kevin telling them to put there mask on not all of them had them on but most of them did.
Kevin does his best to keep it safe there.

I have not seen this happen in quite some time. if shoothing takes places it takes place behind a net.

IXP rules. kevin and his crew try their best to enforce the rules. they can't watch everyone at one time and im not trying to be rude but in my opinion they are the safest paintball facility i've ever been to. If you got bonus balled sorry man i didnt mean to. i paniced.

Adjusted for a different conversation. Just because it happens doesn't make it right.
