Just this they could do better on there paint...
They need to make their money some how. Splatterpark is a big field with a lot of employees. You also get a free lunch with their packs, which no other field does.

I thought the paint at yesterday's big game was quite good. The orange and brown stuff was junk but the marbs were just ok.

Well i thinks the reason that not as many speed ball players show up there is because its more of a woods-ball base field. I love to go there and play pump but not speedball.

I would go to Xcape if you can make the drive. Splatterpark has deteriorated significantly.

While this is true, the point of this thread is so we can make splatter park better. Therefore we have to make the speedball field on par with xcape and get more people interested, so that way the field can offer great speedball and woodsball.

Right.... But hasn't this been a gripe of a lot of people for a while? I know when I was there last year it was a chore to get air put into the bunkers since there wasn't a huge demand for the field. I love splatterpark and it's a nice drive for me as opposed to anywhere else, but man I love speedball as much as I do woodsball, but it seems like there is no dedication to the former. I understand you have to play to what keeps the field running and that's new players, but you can't forget about the older/consistent/loyal players. I bought a season pass last year and didn't even use it more then once since the field was in such disrepair.

I'm the same exact way man, and I definitely agree with the part about how you can't forget about the regular players. I'm hoping this thread can at least get the players who want the speedball field to take care of it somehow. Whether it being themselves maintaining it (which I know is something that the players shouldn't have to do), or a large group of us talking to Sean.

The players have no control in this matter. Splatterpark lost customers TO A MAN WHO RUNS A FIELD FROM HIS HOUSE. Let that sink in. I love some of the refs that work there, such as Brenden and Worm, but besides that, it's a train wreck. Regular Speedball players are subjected to a dirt field, in which the bunker positions are accurate maybe up to 2009 NPPL. If Sean was interested in that revenue, he would of made an effort to reinvigorate that field. Turf is very expensive I understand, but there has to be some leeway. Speedball tournaments bring in huge amounts of profit from paint and entry fees, and really get people interested in coming during Open Plays ( this equals extra profit for teams practicing for any given event). Take control of your player base.

Yeah, definitely won't be re-upping my season pass next year and it's too bad. I think the field is well run, not too pricey, and not too far of a distance from Columbus, but one can only take so much woodsball.
I understand not wanting to put money into something, but to completely let something go to $hit is a whole other story. It literally wouldn't take more than a few hours to go out and move the bunkers around a bit and do something about the horrendous dirt/mud.
My guess is that there won't be an airball field for much longer and it'll become strictly a rec/woodsball venue. Maybe the owner fears that increasing the speed ballers presence will hurt the attendance from rec ballers?

All the five or six times I've been there on the last 18 months I never even saw a speedball field which pissed me off
