How to make/organize a rec field.

For anyone who makes their own rec fields, or knows any good layouts or materials to use, please post it here. Pictures, real or drawn, would also help.

you can get palates for free. companies that have get shipments get there products on palets. the will leave them i the back till a truck come to get them to throwm them a way. get a bunch the pull out 2 out of the bunck. use one for the bunker then take some border of one pales and nail them over the hole on one palet so you dont have cracks in it

anything you can find at a dump, or discarded stuff from where somthing is being built

wheelbarrows

pipes

old doors

If you can, busted old POS cars are good to get...oil barrels are about 20 bucks a pop...i have found 2. Plywood propped up by 2 by 4s works pretty good too. Dirt mounts, ect...just about anyting will work. Here is my layout:

Start

_ _ _


_ O _ \
S |_|
T
A o O o
R _
T _ |_|
-+-

Car O _ /

_ _ _

Start

be sure and make a feild you can start on at all angles.

_ = Stand up bunkers
\ = Slanted stand up bunker
O/o = Oil Barrels
_
|_| = A box type thing


Mix in some dirt mounds i guess....

Me and some friends built a speedball field and we used crates, metal drums/barrels, some old tin roofing, and some cinderblock bunkers(supports to hold them of course). It works out great, wish i had some pics but no digital camera or scanner.

My friend actually came up with a unique bunker. Its temporary so u dont have to ruin a large piece of land (although un my opinion it wouldn't be ruining it) He staples plastic tarps to posts, the kind you use to move leaves. Then he hammers the posts into the ground wherever he wants them. Just make sure they are not too tight, or else balls will go through them. Its a very inexpensive and easy alternative o real bunkers.

Talking

me ands my firends also made a speed ball field with pallets and if u nail two of them together and place them between trees it works real good. also if you get huge pieces of plywood you can get creative with them and they are really helpful.

our field




our speedball field is something like this. it is made up of pallets, dressers (for start boxes), other big things, and plastic rape so n00bies cant shoot through the barriers. we put feet on the pallets so they stand, it works nicely even when windy and can hold a nice amount of ppl.

The field me and my friends play on is just a 2 square mile chunk of land. Each team starts in opposite corners and games take like 2 hrs to get finished.

here are some good options...

*palletes (previously mentioned how to get them: get some thick cardboard and place it in the pallete to cover the holes)
*old barrels or drums(these are great because no matter how you rotate them they always provide the same amount of cover because they are circular)
*ply wood(shape it in a "V" shape or "X" shape. If youe put a pole up from the X shape bunker, you can have a flag station. Also regular boards standing straight up are great too.)
*mound bunkers(just dig up a heep of dirt so you can lay or neal behind them)
*spools(telephone companies might give these away or maybe sell them for a low price. They work really well but i have not been able to get some)
*hay stacks(they only cost like 4$ a paice and are pretty big...the spools of hay are even better but harder to transport.

well those are all the ideas i have rigth now...make sure you ask before you take some of these things cause we got in trouble for taking a pallete from home depot.

At my home field most recball fields are made of tires, barrels, and some beat up old cars. The old cars tend to impress people who're newer playing The tires and barrels can be stacked to make any size bunker you wish. We also have an old fireworks stand that functions somewhat like a small for and also a ply-wood fort. But the cars seems to be the most fun for everyone, problem is getting ahold of them. We've actually had 1 donated to us but hey luck like that comes once every few thousand years.
As for the layout of the field if you're inbetween two wooded areas its pretty cool to make a sort of horse-shoe shape around the two starting places. - Fun fun.

Dig holes long ways in the ground and then put pieces of ply-wood in each different hole. Next dig out like 1 inch out of the ground circles about 4 square feet behind each bunker and get all rocks out and before each game pour water on the little dugout places so it's easier to slide.

My practice field setup.

Anyone have any pictures of a pallet field?

Me and some buddies work @ home depot, so getting them isn't a problem @ all.

Plus we live in AZ so there's plenty of open desert to mess with.

we lean all our palates against trees, or dig them in to the ground.

tarps?

Anyone tried just using the cheap $1.99 blue tarps as bunkers?

Old Cars

We are just using old car hoods and trunk lids with a few barrels and semi truck tires. They work really good too. Truck hoods are tall enough for backstands, trunk lids are small enough to improve front players' game, and car hoods are the perfect size all around. After we finish our field I'll try to get some pics put up.

I honestly don't like the Pallet idea because in a year or two they turn to junk, so we went with the more permanent, less nails sticking out option of car hoods.

go to like a baseball feild or a park or something and take the plasic trash cans. there free. um who was who said about the tarp and stakes that works good. go behind a hardware store and take the pallettes and other wood and things thrown out. houses being built. if your in the woods you can sometimes find rusted out cars and other trash like wood or tarp just make sure no one lives in the cars and things. ummm.... fallen trees after a storm. you got to be strong enough to pull them after they fall or get a group of people. there are so many things that can be used. garbage picking like tvs and other things also.

ur welcome if you need any more ideas just ask.
