Pinnacle just likes to nickle and dime you to death. I was part of a private party (bachlore party) that had a reserved time to play at 1pm. So I got there early at 10am, figured to get my gear ready as it had been awhile since I played and want to make sure every thing was working. I figured since I already paid my $20 field fee I would just join in with the walk-on rec players for the morning till my group showed up. The owner wanted to charge me another $20 field fee to play with the walk-ons! BS'ing with the refs and they even though that was dumb! The ref was cool and just let me sneak in with them.
So back on 12/20/12 I had posted about Pinnacle Woods not knowing how bad I got ripped off over the summer. Yesterday I went and played at another field (first time since I posted my thread) and there was a lot of time wasted in between games but their paint was very affordable.
If you ever get a chance to come up to dayton we should play sometime.Also working on hosting a 3 man and a 5 man tournament at my local field durng the spring were gathering local sponsors from people my family knows and we are planning it out though i promise you 85% there WILL be a tournament.

You say "3 man and a 5 man tournament at my local field", pump or semi? Is your "local field" in Dayton as well?
Yes it is they are working on the woodsball course right now but we are discoussing the tournament with them.We are thinking prize wise right now and are also getting local sponors from other buisnesses.
Im not really sure,they said they will be working on the speedball field after winter but we are thinking cash and a few things like masks,air tanks,paint,medals,speed feeds,pod packs,hoppers etc and were also deciding the best paint choices to use were thnking possibly valken fate or crusade,and g.i. 4 and 5 star paint.All details will be set up soon for entry,prizes,fields,date,time,etc.
whenever i go to the field i expect refs to keep games going but if they are slacking then i do what i do and make games happen...i am not paying to come sit around, ill push other players to get there gear together and get out on the field. if the refs are really that bad then i take it to the boss, and i have never unjderstood why people are content to just sit around the staging area telling game stories between games waiting on refs to put them on the field. been to enough fields where it wasnt even the refs fault, its the lazy field owner that doesnt think of the place as a business, but more of a weekend hobby thinking that players will be content with whatever just because their are few other places to choose from. its a business, act like it, and get your employees to do their job so that customers are happy. when the ref is just standing around messing with his phone or ipod between games i dont blame him, i blame the owner. pod up, air up, and get on the field....
