Manhattan, Kansas Area?

Location: Manhattan, Kansas

I have only played local at two defunct fields and at Nebraski. My last home field was Krazy Kris Paintball west of town just past Keats. Yes, its been that long ago.

What are the "local" field options? How are the regulars? Do they have regulars? Good Sports, rules lawyers, or cheaters?

I know these two exist, but have never played at either. Please elaborate and/or correct as you see fit.

-Foxhole at JC/Grandview Plaza - one netted speed ball field, two woodsball fields along the river

-Elite Sports at Salina/Assaria - helps sponsor Kansas State University Paintball Club. Castle and Woods fields.

What about Outlaw? Any regular groups?

Where else do you play with in reasonable distance?

I miss Krazy Kris's that place was a blast.

Foxhole is good, Allen the owner is a good guy, I believe they do not have a speedball field right now.

Elite Sports I am a bit biased since I live in Salina, We have a turf speedball field one woods field and a castle. Were slowing down a bit right now with it getting cold out.
There are a handful of guys that are out there every weekend (As I said cold weather deters people.)

There is also Dead Possum's somewhere around I know they exist but I don't know where it is.

Drop Zone is in Lawrence but I rarely get up that way.

Let me know if you head up to Elite, I might be able to meet up sometime.

Dead Possum Paintball

Dead Possum Paintball west of Marysville. I have not been there, but it looks like a woodsball field. One page says they offer CO2 & compressed air.

I have a group that "tries" to meet up once a month in the Manhattan area. Here's our fb page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/339030816189944/

No field. We play were ever i can get permission. Usually in Wamego. I'm always looking for other places. I have a HPA compressor. So we all run HPA. We average 12 guys per outing. Everyone is laid back and fun. 18-45 year olds. Cool tempers.

Dead Possum is awesome also. John and Ryan are the guys that run it. They run HPA also. And their woodsball field is legit. Last I played up there they charged $5 a day for fills and entry.

What can you tell me about your local group? What guns are used? Do you ever go enmass to any of "professional" fields? Anybody have loaner HPA tanks? Etc...

Let me know is something special is going on. I live in Dodge City now and it looks like I will have to go to you guys to find a field. I have heard there is something in Hutchinson but Elite is Salina is the closest for me otherwise. I wouldn't mind bringing some odd toys for Blitz to play with one of these times.

The hutchinson field has gotten better at following safety rules.
They play hand and feet hits don't count and they will fill out of date compressed air tanks....

You mean that my 86/4500 Apocalypse that was one of the first 4500 tanks Air America made is still useable? All right I am in!
