This field will always be owned by Leo imop. I am 90% sure he would go bankrupt before he would sell it.

The good news is in the past 2 years I have only seen him at most like twice and his wife Kathy & Jay(head tech) & Reiz(head Ref) tends to run the day to day weekend operations.


The three people I have mentioned above have never done anything that might rub a customer the wrong way in the slightest bit based on my 50+ times visiting abc (mostly on saturdays, with an occasional sunday after an event when there was no practice). Leo on the other hand may yell or be a dick when you just need to say put your mask on ect.

Though Leos never done anything questionable to anyone I knew so i cant complain. Some people just may not be a fan of his no nonsense attitude, combined with less than stellar interpersonal skills. This wont affect 97.5% of customers paintball experience though.

Yeah he never did anything to customers, just the way he acted with his staff. I was young and so were a lot of the people there and it just didnt seem appropriate for an owner. Thats not going to stop me from coming out. Just wondering

Oh yeah whenever him and his son happened to be working mad Shenanigans would occur . Those two didn't seem to get along well . I don't think his son works there anymore haven't seen him in a while .

heh... leo... i worked there one summer. i think it was '01. that was my first job ever, actually. that was also the first field i ever played at too. my brother used to play there a ton back in the early 2000s. leo was definitely... an interesting character. but everyone else you mentioned are great people. reese will always be awesome, and there used to be another older ref, joe, that was great too.

Is ABC still open in the winter? If so, how many people usually show up on the weekends?

Depending on if it is a holiday or a private reservation is if abc is open during the week.
By the way if anyone has questions about abc just ask me I have been reffing there a year now and don't mind answering them.

The vast majority of people work during the weekdays... it is just not smart business if a field stayed open during the week and spending money on salaries and utilities for the 2 or 3 people to show up every 5th Tuesday.

However, I recently moved to north jersey and haven't been to ABC yet. I plan on playing this weekend but is your speedball up? And how's the turnout for it?

Majority of kids that work 16-21 work weekends... Majority of pb players ages are 13-20 idk what your saying one day a week would hurt business.

Ok he is right opening during the week is highly cost effective at all we only do that if there is a private reservation because of that this way money can still be made with or without walkons

And as per your question about speedball the hurricane did a number on the netting its all torn up the poles are bent it will be open for summer and a second woodsball field we will be fixing this during the week soon. But if you want to come there is castle field which if you watch YouTube videos on it the games play like speedball.

Woods ball just isn't my thing man. I haven't played since the llp tourney last year so I need some speedball haha. Sorry to hear about the damage, hope it gets fixed smoothly.

As for the comment about kids working weekends, I guess all of the ones that play paintball dropped out of school and have weekdays free... if you need to play weekdays that badly head down to all star on Thursdays, they used to have some good turnouts then. I know paintball authority is open weekdays but there isn't ever a turnout then other than private parties.

Opening up during the week without reservation is not cost effective at all. The field I ref at, we only open up during the week if we have a scheduled reservation, that way we know we will be making some money, otherwise, we are basically paying the electric bill, turning on air, etc all for nothing.
