Thank you for comments. If you take the hours of play 10-6 PM, 8 hours and divide it into the $20.00 field fee that equates to $2.50 hour, a real bargin compared to many other entertainment venues. Please remember that there are alot of cost associated with running a business, insurance, maintenance, grounds keeping, utilities, personnel, to just mention a few, alos remember that each of our fields took time and money to build. I know you can play in a woods or a field for free, but you don't get variety in field terrain like you do at No Limits. I compared our prices to other airsoft field venues in Michigan and I believe we are on par with them and offer just as much if not more. Please remember that profits at these types of venues are minimal at best, that is why we all work other jobs to support our families, this is just a hobby at best. Thanks again for coming out, hope to see you soon. Brian/Ninja
ninja's absolutely right. $20 for what he's offering is very fair. It's the same you're paying at the DD field for a similar game play experience (smaller, shorter informal games). Playing on private land is great, and sometimes you stumble across great areas that you can play at for free. But that's a rarity, and those fields tend to be short lived in my experience. Plus, I like a field being run by somebody who knows just how liable he is for taking safety precautions. I know that I don't have to worry about putting somebody's eye out because on his field he doesn't think full seal goggles are really necessary. I also don't have to worry about getting shot by a 600 fps gun at 10 feet for the same reason.

I enjoyed the field, it was great playing in some new areas. The only thing that I can complain about is I have a few inches of skin on my arms that wasn't destroyed by bugs. The one game we played in the woods was great, it would have been used a lot more if it wasn't for the damn blood suckers.
Next time your out stop at the office, there is always bugs spray in there for all to use. If I know ahead of time that a large group is coming, I would be happy to fog the fields before arrival. Sorry for the bug bites, they are just out of control this year from all of the rain in the spring, usually they are not bad, but this year WOW!
i never disagreed with the price, it is fair and even if it didn't seem that way, business is business, you need to make money somehow. it massacares the price for lazer tag (my teams other favorite thing to do) and it is much safer than playing elsewhere. i myself am very very happy to go here because in the end i actually save money because its so close, i will keep coming out here if i am not working.
Hey acecompany just to give you some advice, you have to learn how to spell or at least use the "Spell Check" button before you post or the mods will likely ban you. Also there are some things that the spell check will not catch so you have to know the difference between words like they're, there, they are. "Their" isn't a word (at least that I know of).
"Their" most definitely is a word. It's the third person plural possessive pronoun. As in, "My parents are nice enough to let me stay in their house rent free," or, "even though I steal their car all the time to go to airsoft games." "They're" is the combination of "they" and "are," which is a combination of the third person plural pronoun and the most common verb in any language. We say it enough that it becomes "they're," much like, "you're." "You're," very similar to "they're," but second person and either singular or plural, is different from "your," though they are commonly switched by e-idiots like acecompany. "Your," like "their," is a possessive pronoun and has very little to do with, "you're" except we're lazy and make them sound the same when we speak. They should sound more like "yor" and "yoo're," but they both end up sounding like "yer."
All of this is only mildly relevant because acecompany should have used the word, "there," which refers to a place. We also use it as what's called a dummy subject when starting the sentence with the real subject sounds awkward. We do the same with, "it" as well. It just sounds kind of clunky to say, "A lot of sniper spots are at the No Limits field." However, since using dummy subjects is really bad writing, and just barely tolerable when you get past basic high school requirements, acecompany really should have said, "I see a lot of sniper spots in the pictures." If you play with your subjects and objects enough, you can almost always avoid using dummy subjects.
Now that we've gotten third grade grammar out of the way, M.S-Arc is right, Acecompany. You need to start using that third grade grammar in your posts. That includes capital letters, periods, and the correct spelling and forms of words.
Before a mod comes in with a ban hammer, try not to necro post, that means that you shouldn't post in anything thats over 3-4 weeks old. It was $20 for pretty much all day, but I'm not sure if we are running at the field again this year, I'd be up to it but I'm not certain i there will be hosted games.
