Actually the field name we had from the first five minutes of conception, coulda sworn I told you Doc. We took the name from the surrender rule you used on your field.
We decided to go with the name Point Blank Paintball.
Not the greatest name probably, but we like it, its simple, easy to remember, and I think there's a movie with a similar name if not the exact same name. I suppose the name could be a little misleading to people who have no clue about paintball, I mean it does sound like your shooting people at 10 feet or less.
Still working up a catch phrase though. The best we've managed so far is:where it's legal to shoot your friends.
Doesn't sound very PC though, so if someone comes up with something better let me know.
We also want to come up with a mascot or two. I was thinking a cat and mouse, or maybe just the silhouette of a person. Again, it's still in the works.
Got some great barricade ideas from the forum, but more don't hurt. The one thing we are trying to do is build the fields the way the players want. Also trying to have multiple themes going so we can provide a lot of variety to the players. We're getting some great local help with materials and ideas. Ideally we want several fields with different themes that can combine into a much larger area for scenario type games.
Also did some work on the field this weekend to improve some of the bunkers, I think the few improvements we've made will be noticed, but lots more to still do. Dumped a few loads of dirt in the parking area and smoothed it out by hand, not perfect but a lot smoother than it was. Hopefully the ATVs don't destroy it before the 18nth when we play again. Until we can get a cat though we're pretty much done with dirt work.
