Frequently Asked Questions.
Q1: What do I wear?
A1: Wear some clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty. It is recommended that you wear long pants and long sleeves. You may want to add an extra layer, but take a look at the weather first.
Q2: Do I need a mask?
A2: Yes! You must wear a mask at all times on the field.
Q3: Is there a place to eat at the park?
A3: Yes, there is. PAP has a small food truck, that provides simple yet delicious foods and beverages for the whole park.
Q4: Does it hurt?
A4: Paintballs may sting for a minute after getting hit, but this will quickly fade. The sting is similar to a bee sting.
Q5: What do I do if I get hit?
A5: Keep that mask down! Hold your gun up in the air and verbally state that you are out. Choose a good path and walk to the side of the field as quickly as possible with your gun in the air and wait until the referee leads everyone off the field.
Q6: What do I do if I have a question at the field?
A6: Ask someone. Almost everybody will be happy to help.
Q7: What are barrel covers?
A7: These go over the tip of your barrel. You must have your barrel cover on your Paintball Gun when you are not on the playing field. This will protect you and others from a miss-fire.
Q8: In the Winter is there a place to keep warm?
A8: Yes. During the Winter PAP will have small bonfires burning throughout the day for guests to keep warm.
Communicate – Talk to your teammates while you play. Let them know where everyone is and how many players are left. Ask them for help or cover fire.
Move – Don’t just stand there! Don’t make yourself an easy target. Constantly move. Poke your head out of different parts of the bunker. Move from one position to another (if it is safe).
Aim – It is easy to just point the gun and shoot. Be sure that you are pointing at something worth hitting.
Plan – Whether you are a veteran tournament player or a beginner, it is important to create a strategy for the particular field and/or players you are playing. You may want to walk over the field ahead of time to get an idea of the possible shots.
Play as a Team – Your not the only player. Listen to each other and play the field accordingly. If Jim has the right side covered, watch his left side.
