The rant was not directed at you.

I don't think they really are competing with anyone right now anways, indoor with heat with nice turf in CR... They don't need to compete with someone 3-5 hours away. Most people simply won't go...on a regular basis when something is just nice and closer.

This weather does really blow for the whole I want to get in shape/lose weight thing.

Not really rewards either, **** its the holiday season. Isn't this holiday one to give instead of receiving? Paint should be drastically lower through out this next two weeks!! Discounted paint would be awesome.

You have no idea, try gearing up for NCAA D2 Indoor track season lol. I think I'll have quite the adventure running over break.

I am pretty excited for this field. I'll be playing there either Saturday or Sunday this weekend. Looks and sounds pretty legit.

I understand some people/kids can't afford that but, paintball is expensive and you gotta understand that the first time you see a gun at a paintball store or know what the entry is for PSP/NPPL...and that also calls out for a job and not your parents....

Anyway seems the field is k!ck@$$..ill have to check it out real soon.. If it stops snowing!

Paintball IS expensive, but guess who is supporting it? The noobies and local rental kids. They are really the ones that are gonna make paintball live or die. Now most this kids CANNOT afford those prices, I was just suggesting maybe lower prices or cheaper paint=lower prices .. I know ALOT of people that are young and like paintball, but like i said prices are what really keep them from coming out. If they could market correctly they can surely be a great field here in CR. They are about 1/2 mile from a Jefferson High School. Where there is many kids that are some what interested in paintball. If APP can do something right, they can have a huge crowd, which is good for everyone.

All you people need to quit complaining about paint and entry prices. All everybodydoes is complain about this. First address, then opening dzte, and now paint prices., Seriously do you have nothing better to do, cause it sure doesn't seem like it. So lets face it paintball is an expensive sport, and if you don't like it your in the wrong sport.

Im not complaining, I make enough money to play anytime i want, i just choose not to. I was just giving an opinion, now dont complain later on when field/store or w.e closes cause not enough business. this was an idea for them to maybe get more business. It for the business owner to think over. Not for people like you that don't really know what im trying to say, and think its just complaining.

Well you guys did miss the opening date. But paint prices are just everyone wanting everything for free or next to nothing again.

WTF!!!

I have yet to see a complaint from anyone that actually paid entry and bought a case or two to play last weekend (And Actually Played). Seems to me that everyone that came out and supported the cause with $$$ to play & did play had a great time!

I missed the opening date as well. Damn! **** happens! I'm just hoping to get home in the next couple days so I can play. I'll be happy to pay entry fee and whatever price they're asking for paint. 15 minutes from my house, I never would have thought.

I can't wait to bring Legend in there to work on skillz! Hope to see everyone out there.

Enough with all the negative feedback already, no one is listening.
