The company and the marker are brand new to the market. It should arrive this week, in which case I will be bringing it out to Fox on Sunday. I will be lending it out to anyone that wants to give it a roll - the rest of the time I will be rolling with it

Seems to do more damage putting up and taing down. Besides, we have no place to store all that netting, and mice love nesting in netting over the winter too.



So, whats not maintained at Fox? All of the bunkers ALL hold air in the morning. They may go down at times, but only after being run through by players. Not a big deal, we just air them up and fix em for next week.
We have built it, we maintain it, we even ran $2k worth of power and airlines to the Pits. Tourny play is just down right now, and not enough players to go around for every field out there.
Not the first time we have seen a low in tourny play. Happens every 3 to 4 years. Were already on the upside of this as we have seen alot more teams back at Fox over the past few months.
taking down nets in the winter is part of maintenance. not having a storage locker free of mice is not an excuse. youve got to be kidding me when you say all bunkers are blown up in the morning. Sure you spent 2k on the pits, but look at the condition of them now. Maintenance is cheaper than replacing things.

dude, are you kidding me? I'll step in on this one...

Taking down the netting isn't part of maintenance when you actually use the netting in the winter... Last time I checked Fox doesn't close the field down in the winter time (other than the random really bad weather day) and hyperball fields don't deflate.

Fox has FULL 4500 fills(how many fields can even say that??), all the time just feet from the field. They always have one if not 2 different airball fields up every weekend, their bunkers stay inflated almost all day (maybe a couple bunkers here and there that need a tap-off), and are inflated when the open games start or most of the time even earlier. Their fields are gridded, and the dry spell this year has made for very good conditions (no mud).



I'm there every other weekend, if not every weekend sometimes. Come see me sometime when I'm there.

Alooooexx Do you own a field? Cause you seem to know a lot about running one. If you do I would love to check it out sometime. Otherwise I would stop being a twat. You made your point in your first point there is no need for you to continue. Go back under your bridge.

Where trolls come from.

I think we need to cool our jets a bit here. Alooooex has brought up concerns, but I don't think he knows completely on the whole how fox operates and works. Fox has been alive for now over 20 years, and in the past many it's been under the supervision of Tim and as well as Ray. They both know how to run, how to work, and what makes them stay alive.

The last thing anyone can do about it all, is continuously criticizing the issues when he himself isn't doing anything about it.

Aloooex, if you want "better" bunkers. Go ahead and buy them and donate them to the field please. If you want better anything, do your part to get it there. I don't see you there on fox clean up days after a storm. I don't see you coming mid-week to finish up the work that needs to be finished.

But you're right, there are things that need to be fixed, and things do come in time. For the moment let us be a community, let us be friends who enjoy something together, and let us keep playing paintball.

im not there every weekend helping out midweek. but i spent a weekend helping put up those posts for the xball and xball pits. They looked great brand new but its sad to see them deteriorate.

also, i never said better bunkers. Its just that they are never up. Nobody wants to play on a field where your bunker collapses midgame and you are forced to bump to the next bunker. leave a leaf blower where we can get to it if thats what we have come to expect, its what everyone else does for their ****ty bunkers.

Do we even have an A? or do we still have the X? nuff said.

i figured id just suggest things that normal people expect from tourny ball since fox is my favorite field.

Well, its paintball. Everything looks great brand new. Nothing will last forever, and sinced the 4x4's are still holding up the netting and serving their purpose, no sense in wasting money buying new ones.

Really? You must be coming out to play in Jan thru April each year. There has not been one week where we didnt air up the bunkers on X BALL or SUPAIR when we had 10+ players, unless we were in the middle of repairs or setting up a new field. We dont run any Airball on weekdays.

Gee, and why do you think we dont leave the blowers down there. Everytime we do, team players top off the bunkers, leave it on the field, and it gets destroyed during the game (Unless someone steals it first).
We started off this season with three $300 gas blowers. Now were down to one.
Besides, we have a Staff Member scheduled to work every week for Team Practice on Sat and Sun. His job is to fill the bunkers, check wristbands, watch the air fill station, keep the area clean, and top off bunkers as needed. This Ref has 7 different speedball fields to watch. If you need something, why not ask? Our Team Practice Ref would get right on it.

Seriously, when was the last time you were at Fox? We have three X's that we havnt used on X BALL in two years. We have had both of our A's set up every weekend this year since we started setting up the fields. Nuf said? That comment makes no sense to me.

If Fox is your favorite field, then start acting like Fox is your favorite field. We appreciate everyones feedback, and typically try to comply with what players want/need, within reason. Taking down netting may be what fields did back in the 80's, but we dont do that anymore.
Until you actually work at a Paintball field, and fully understand what the day to day operation's are, you will never know what it takes to keep the doors open for 20+ years.
EVERYTHING takes time and money. I put in well over 100 hours each week, and Tim puts nearly every cent made back into the business.
You said you were there helping to set up the PIT area. Hell, that was over four years ago. Where have you been lately? These other guys that see things that need repair or changed usually ley us know, then we set up a time and the ones that want something usually pitch in and help get it done.

Ive been at college. Its hard to volunteer at a paintball field when you are 3 hours away.


If you cant take constructive criticism then go ahead and keep doing what you are doing. Just don't expect tourny ballers to come back. The only thing that saves you is your YG tournies, and as soon as they graduate that, they leave to different fields. There isn't a significant drop in tourny ballers. I go to CPX (i havent been to badlandz) but I see the same old faces from back in the day. This is your field and all that, but this forum is for discussing fox paintball and I am discussing improving.

When was the last time the xball field had lines spraypainted on it? 07, 08? Things used to be high quality at fox.


straight up false with the A being set up, I wish i had pictures to back me up.
