I'm sure that many of you have heard about this field, either here on pbnation, or at the ICU indoor, but i dont think many of you know what Archery Field is REALLY about. Archery is a field located in Altoona, IA (about 15 minutes east of Des Moines) that is centered around dedicated young players determined to get the best practice they can. Most everyone that plays out here is looking to compete in national events, not your everyday rec. player you find at ICU. The practices at Archery are much more intense than any of the games played at ICU, in my opinion. Simply because we play to improve, we play to win. While we do play for fun, it is not the only reason we play.
While ICU has its advantages, the disadvantages, in my opinion, out weigh them. Indoor paintball is ideal for WINTER playing, and I dont think that anything beats good old fashion grass. ICU is fairly small as far as paintball fields go, idea for 3 man. 5 man can get a little crowded, again in my opinion. One of my BIGGEST problems with ICU, and im sure many of you that play there would agree with me, is the long *** wait between games. Ive waited for 30 minutes between games before. and while for rec. players, and less dedicated players may think thats fine. I do not. Wouldnt you like to have a 5 minute wait between games? A less of a wait means more games you get to play. the more games you get to play, the more practice you get. its just simple logic.
At Archery, you wont wait 30 minutes to play between games. Seeing as we that play there have PSP experience, we play a much faster paced game. You wont have to worry about over crowding on the field, as it is a PSP REGULATION SIZE FIELD.
Every week the players of New Jack City, and New Jack Ghetto (formally prodigy) set up the field for a new weekend of play. And let me be the first to say, that Brad has an amazing talent when it comes to setting up fields. Also at Archery you have the option to BYOP, something that many fields now a days dont offer. Yes you have a little more expensive field fee, but we have to keep the business rolling you see.
The point of this long thread is simply this. To get people to understand what really goes on at Archery Field. I know that i cant force you to come play here, but i hope that by laying out the advantages of playing here, you will come out and see for yourself what its all about. And im sure once you do, you'll come back for more.
Please, come out and grind with us. It will probably be one of the best practices youve ever had.
If you have any questions of conserns, please feel free the PM me, and i will let you know. if i cant answer your question i will redirect you to someone who can.
