Halloween Hunt 2012
Our Halloween Hunt went very smooth! It was October 27th, 2012. It was nighttime games that were non-elimination. Dim lighting and sound effects added to the fun that was had by all that attended. Thanks for everyone that joined our Halloween Hunt this year.
Field One (Speedball) Upgrade( Updated 08/01/2012 )
We have completed our current planned upgrades and modifications to our games area. We added several new barricades, a building, and Two Forts to our Field One.
In the images you can see the Six(6) New Barricades, the Walk-Thru Building, and Two(2) New Covered Forts that have been added. Each Fort has its own flag and a roof for cover in the sun and rain. We have also moved some of the current barricades and columns.

W.F.P.D. Swat Team Plays Paintball( Added 12/15/2011 )
We got a great thrill when the Wichita Falls Police Department SWAT Team came out this week. They held some training classes and real-time training for SWAT Tactics out in our Field Two and Three. They even got a chance to get in some good 'ol games of paintball on our speedball course. This was a great bunch of guys and gals, and they will always be welcome to come out and do more training.
New Safety Netting Installed
We finally got our New Safety Netting installed!! It was fully operational on March 24th, 2011. The old netting was removed a few days after that. The new netting is about 10 feet further from the picnic area. It has taken over a year to design the new system, get all the materials, and install the New System. Our New Netting now goes all the way to the ground, and is 3 feet higher than the old netting. The entire new netting raises and lowers with a single cable system which means it is a lot easier to raise than the old netting. It can be raised in less than 1 minute. Due to the high winds we have out here from time to time, the netting will remain lowered on weekdays unless we have players out. It will usually also be down before we open and after we close on weekends. I mentioned the 'keeping it down on weekdays' and how fast it can be raised because I had a call from a person who said they came out to play the previous sunday. When they pulled in the parking lot (just before we opened), and saw the netting down, they figured since the netting was down, we were closed, and left. WRONG. We had a total of 18 players that day. They started showing up about an hour later. It would have taken less than a minute to walk inside and ask.
Target Shooting Range Upgrade
Our New Target Range - September 15, 2010
I am sure most of you had seen the Target Shooting Range we had in 2008. Well, it had been up for 2 years, and was showing some wear, so as of August 23, 2010, we started construction of a new, even larger, more durable Target Shooting Range. The old one was 6 feet tall, and the new one is 14 feet tall. We put a lot more time into the design and durability. We have removed the old target range. Due to its size, the new one was built 20 feet behind the last one. Everyone is more than welcome to come out anytime and check it out. We have completed as much as we are going to do for now. Our New Target Range got a lot of use on its first breakin weekend of Sept. 4-5, 2010. I kept the "little man" because he has been part of our target range for over 8 years. The big guy in the middle we named "Max". He is 7 feet tall. He is the most popular of targets since he has the most paint on him at the end of each day. The Customers and Players who help support our field are definitely worth all the upgrades, additions, and expansions we do on a regular basis. Suggestions are always appreciated!! This little addition cost over $600 in materials and labor.
Front Porch Upgrade :)
After so many years, our 'Front Porch' was showing some wear, so when I decided it was time to put down new decking, I decided to cover it at the same time. We also added a good concrete pad in front of the steps for when it gets muddy from rain. Now the players have a nice dry spot when entering the store, and I can stand on the front porch and watch the players while it is raining, snowing, or whatever Texas has to offer that day.
The players love it because they don't have to stand in the rain any more while getting the door open, and getting everyone inside!! It also gives the players just that much more shade while traversing between the store and picnic area during those 'warm' summer days.
