I have been going to the fields alone now for years I think the first time I went was in the 2000 era, I find it real peaceful. I usually wait a few hours after all the people clear out and then walk through the woods listening to nature. I do go occasionally during the day but I have to make sure no one is in the shop.

But in all seriousness ya just go and hang out, sooner or later you will see a gun that you have a question about and someone may ask a question about yours and BOOM a friendship is born. Just be open and nice, but seriously, no matter what you do, dont be creepy, no one likes that. just akwaaaard people ruining others conversations.

I am a lone-wolf baller, and it seems to always work well that way -- never have I had a friend that has been paintballing with me on a constant basis, so I have to go alone anyway. It's a good opportunity to meet and greet the paintball community and if the vibe is right, make a few close friends in the process. This may be a stretch, but almost always there will be friendly person or group to welcome you even if it is in the most awkward way such as, "hey dude, nice hopper, wanna' join up?" -- before you know it, by lunch time you're having some good laughs and some serious teamwork out on the field thereafter

I'm going by myself for the first time during spring break since my local field is hosting a type of clinic. It was the only thing that would get my parents to let me go by myself so I guess it's better then nothing. Plus they'll help me improve my game.

Start the day not knowing anyone. Be friendly and helpful to every one and leave with 4-5 friends to call the next weekend you might want to play.

Do this a few times and you'll know someone every time you head out alone.

I always go alone, and found the more you go, the more comfortable you get.

I started playing about 5 years ago, had a bunch of friends into it and we all went together. Now that I'm a working adult and can afford better equipment I've gotten back into it, but no one I used to play with plays anymore so I'll be doing it solo myself. Going to see how it plays out this weekend for my first weekend back in the game.

I go by myself almost every single time. I now know (and am friends with) almost every person at the 3 fields I go to.

I've been going alone a lot more. Honestly, going with some buddies can get annoying at times, since they wanna do what they wanna do and what you wanna do.

I play a few recball games, then go to the speedball area of my field and play there. Although, last Sunday (3/11) I only played 1 game of speedball because I was uninterested in speedball that day.

I have never gone alone. I moved almost years ago haven't gone since. I just got my new setup and i'm planning on going alone this weekend. Not looking forward to it. I'm generally shy ad quiet. It sucks, I know people will be nice and chill, but I suck at getting to know people and being myself until I DO get to know them a bit better.

Heh. Wish me luck

I usually go by myself, except last weekend I talked a good friend of mine into coming to the field with me. Needless to say, he is now hopelessly addicted.

i tend to only go when friends wanted to go. But we didnt ever go to fields very often. we built our own fields. it was pretty nice actually because out of the 10 or so of us who played in our group, about 4 or 5 of us hade custom fields built at our houses.

When I did go to fields though it was usually with 2 or 3 buddies

Almost always go by myself. Even for some tournaments!

Usually our field has a good turnout for walk-on play and lots of regulars.

I fly solo mostly. Don't have to worry about anyone else i bring, just need to worry about myself. If you have a girlfriend a would recommend never have her play with you. I'm use to playing as a front player speedball style. But with her there i stayed back to help her and got owned. Bad idea. This may just be me Just go and make new friends, and chill.
