It seems like the business model for paintball field memberships seems to be to get people to buy markers in the pro shop.
I just can't justify spending the money on one field's membership when their are 5 fields in the area and their are 4 months out of the year that are going to be ****ty. It would be nice to have something like mentioned in this article that would give you access to a group of fields.
Paintball Explosion's membership is the biggest joke out of them all, $300/yr, $10 off an $85 case of 2000. Oh, but it's free if you spend $400 or more in the shop.
