Addressing the incidents:

The person whos gun was stolen had told us (paintball explosion staff) that he left for about half an hour to get food. He told us what this after he noticed the marker was stolen. According to person whos gun was stolen, he left it on top of his gearbag in the grand stands. This leaves a lot of time for things to happen. We dont have water fountains here. If he was just in the immediate area, then the friends he was with would have been around his stuff. His friends were with him offsite getting food. His friends however put all their stuff away and or brought it with them. I really feel bad for the guy. We have been very cooperative and will continue to do what ever we can.

How can people blame our park? We have staff everywhere and do our best. Since these incidents we have even heightened our security.

We have always offered free lockers since we have opened, and the locker are everywhere. We were waiting on the lock to be delivered as our supplier has been out. However, we had lock for sale the week his gun was stolen.

I think that this comes down to everyone securing their property. We have locker everywhere. We have them in different sizes so if you want a locker cubby to hold you wallet and keys we offer them too. We have a lot of cameras, however we cant see everything. We do our best to cover what we can. We have a lot of people who frequent our park. Our incident rate is super low.
i actually left it with 2 of my friends but they left the airball area

Same thought here. Haven't seen anything anywhere that says when you need to preregister by. Not on the flyer for the event or website

Hey guys, I have a couple questions about the field.

My best friend keeps holding us off from going because he says that you guys are still completing some fields, is this true or do you guys have up all the fields you're planning on having up and running this season?

The other question I have is how convenient is access to my vehicle compared to where we air up/hang out between games? The reason I ask is that I like to keep parts, spare equipment, paint, food, etc. in my car and make frequent trips to it between games.

Thanks in advance for taking the time to answer and if I like the field when I try it out I have every intention of getting an annual membership and making this my home field. I'm up in Rockford, I'm tired of driving all the way to Fox, and the thought of shooting down I-90 and being able to play ball within 45 minutes is very appealing. Too bad I don't still live in Elgin, I'd probably be trying to work for you if I did!

Take care,
Mike

Pretty sure all the fields are done for the year. As far as parking, if you want to run back and forth to your car you will be spending more time doing that than playing. It's a hike from the fields, through the building and then out to the parking lot. When you do make it out there...which should be sooner than later...watch where you park, most people out there park like total ****! Which is surprising for such a large parking lot!

Not really sure what you play. If you play airball, then their indoor field is pretty much right at the parking lot. There is an air fill station there as well. If you play in the woods/ any other fields they have, the walk is a bit longer, but not too bad. I would advise against going back and forth to your car, cause it is kind of far (unless you play airball, like I said). You also have to pass through the main enterance, which is sometimes pretty packed with people that buy admission (no worries though, these lines move fast). Go and check this field out. I guarantee you won't be dissapointed.

You can also go ahead and slap your friend for me. There are more than enough fields, and none that I know of are under construction. Check out their site (pbbomb.com) and see for yourself.

Hope to see you around!

There is always a good sized crowd for indoor speedball on Sundays, and the Wiseguys will not have the field (To my knowledge none of the current Wiseguy players will be there tomorrow). The only reason you would have to get off the field is if there is a private party, but even then the open group just rotates on/off the field with the private group.

As for going to your car, I would suggest bringing a lock (or buying one in the proshop for I believe $6) and utilizing the lockers for all your tools and paint. It would make your day much easier rather than continuously going back to the car, but the field does not allow off field food or drink due to the liquor license/insurance reasons so you should probably leave that in the car to come back to during breaks throughout the day.

Also the only field that might have not been completed was Turmoil, but now that the helicopter is in place (which is ridiculously cool, go check it out!) there are no fields incomplete.

Yeah, the private groups get pretty annoying.

From what I know, the wiseguys (or any other team for that matter) dont practice on days that there's open play. You might see a couple guys together, but they dont have organized practice. Correct me if I'm wrong though..
