First off, Our count was higher than 150, though not what we expected. And yes, a good portion because of the rain (a LOT of rain). We were expecting more walk-ons than we had."
ok ill take that one as an acceptable >>excuse<<

324 players - official player count

500 players was our target - 700 our maximum capacity considering referees, air and paint.

"Secondly, for those that came very far and paid a lot of money, I didnt realize it was solely for the swag, and not the game. Last time I checked, we were a paintball field, not a radio station. So, what you're telling me is that a STICKER would have made all the difference? Right."
My point wasnt for stickers, my point was why bother giving anything at all?

3 X7 markers
5 Alpha black markers
100 pods
100 squeegies
8 48/3k compressed air tanks
10 empire belt packs
50 us army mugs
1 year membership
10 field passes

Just to name a few items given away at the awards/prize ceremony.

no where to sit???? 55 dollars for entry and 69 for paint you guys could knock a tree over or something...

We had multiple picnic tables/spools in the staging area that were empty, and the restrooms inside the building were pretty empty all day. In fact, last event we had about 300 players - no port-o-john - and no issues with the restrooms.

Our facility is growing and will experience growing pains here and there. The great part about our facility is that we learn from our past events and improve as necessary.

Too bad about the lightning. The frustrating part about the event was bring the players off the field after starting the game 20 minutes prior. However, we'd rather do that than risk a player getting hit by a lightning strike.

We all KNOW that shooting off field is wrong and since we were'nt doing it we really didn't need to be lectured like children. With everyone soaked, broke (come on $69.00 a case???) and disappointed that their General left and the game was more like walkon woodsball than scenario format, it was the one last aggravation that will make me question a return trip.
I'm sorry if anyone disrespected you. It was a very stressful day for all of us. Our staff had many hundreds of man hours put into this event and to have it rain was very disappointing but, nevertheless, out of our control.

We did cope to the best of our ability by appointing a new German command staff that was able to rack up a respectable amount of points in the afternoon and on Sunday.

We will focus a few more staff on the camping/staging area next event to ensure that we don't have players discharging their markers in that area.

Again, I apologize for any disrespectful statements made on the field/staging to players not responsible for wanton abuse.

Only 46 pics of Saturday play and 71 for Friday registration???

Seems odd for the longest day of play to have the least pics.

The pictures in the photo gallery are a small portion of total pictures that were taken.

As was said earlier, the rest (about 5,000 total) will be posted within the next few days. We want to go through and remove duplicates and such.

Not sure exactly who that was (maybe them), but we do have some very friendly people at the field.

Oh, and FYI the pro-shop was/is open 24 hours for all players to use - men's and women's flush restrooms inside.

I would like to shout out a big hoo-rah to the refs and staff. The refs were as wet (or wetter) than the rest of us but they were out doing their jobs and doing them well. I really appreciated the refs that roamed the camps during down time for some chat. Your place has great potential. Remain open to the suggestions from your players, incorporate the best of them and you should have a top notch facility.

Why can't I win an X7?

I must agree with DevilD. The reffing staff is among the best I have seen. I have been playing for many years, and have played at several facilities. Kudos to all involved with that! The paint price does not make one happy, but ANY time money leaves me I am unhappy. The weather definately sucked *** ***** *** ****** ****. Really bad. But who can we blame for that? Chuck Loftin or God I guess. I'll go with Chuck. I really liked the layout and design of the field. I really didn't like the final battle. I didn't like the single shot elimination thing. I also didn't like the fact that it was over so fast. I could complain that I got shot within the first five minutes, but it only lasted five minutes! lol! I think that at the end of it all, it would be more fun to just keep re-inserting. Might as well burn up that paint on the field before we go. I will end by saying that I do intend to play at the next scenario in Oct. I have played at all of them WR has hosted, and this one only experienced a couple of minor hiccups imo. Keep up the good work guys!

That's the truth!

Yes, we will be revamping/refining some items for the next event. The final battle was a bit anti-climactic.

Expect even more improvements for the October Battle for Stalingrad event.

You can put the blame squarely on my shoulders on that one. That format worked pretty well for Bastogne...not so much for Normandy. I'll be heavily reconsidering my format for Stalingrad and I can personally assure you that it will NOT be like that.

I've got some pretty good ideas for stalingrad already, so the game should be pretty awesome. I look forward to seeing you all there

Well done Jester, you get one official "Kudos" point from me for stepping up to the plate! They're not worth much, and the only place I've found that will redeem them is in Bagladesh... but still, one has been credited to your account. Mistakes are made on a daily basis by us all, but it is rare that anyone wants to own them and assure to fix them. Still not happy with paint prices, but I am (somewhat) appeased by the fact that the extra $ might be going to pay for the service provided by the team @ WR.

Not to beat a dead horse, but please try to have better paint. And no velocity or weather excuses. I hit more then one person on the shoulder, mask, and one on the gun from less then 30' and the ball did not break. The last private group I brought ran into the same issue. Spent a month talking up WRP only to spend all week apologizing for the paint.

All and all I had a great time. The refs were top notch as always and the first game was great. I would have had fewer bunkers for the allies as they got close to the flags but that is a minor issue. I left at lunch on Saturday so not sure how the rest of the day went.

Also you quote over 300+ but was that for the weekend, not for Saturday. I would put that number closer to 150 then 300.

I have a few suggestions for Oct. but want to see how many I can come up with before I throw them out there.

Saturday was over 300. We only had 12 players walk on during Sunday.

As far as the paint, we'll continue to work on the formula. We can't make it too soft or the cyclone feeds will tear it up, however we can't make it too hard for the same reason you're stating.
