I find it funny how we make a point about a stake ( dont get me wrong here that does suck. ) but when your jumpin around in the forest its potentaly hundreds of times more dangerous with all the stones and branches out there yet nobody has brought that up. funny eh?


That depends on the field. Much of the time they're cleared of small debris like that.

There always plenty of hindrances in the forest. For example, if the field owners have not trimmed tree trunks to raise the crown of the trees, then you could have many branches that are the same height as people. Depending upon the field, that could be dangerous.

Furthermore, if the branches have been "broken" off of the trunk and not carefully pruned off of the trunk, then the broken stubs could pose a serious risk. Consider the combination of horizontal, chest/head level spikes, reduced field of vision from the goggles, and players running (sometimes without looking where they are running, as they shoot). The picture below shows the proper way to prune branches - and prevent players from impaling themselves...

Then there's always the chances of encountering the Lorax... he doesn't like anyone cutting or breaking trees.

Depends if there is a waiver or not.


A waiver doesn’t protect against negligence.

I would think that most fields would check the bunkers periodically to make sure they were secure and fully inflated. And pertaining to the rocks and stuff in woodsball I had a friend who hit his knee on a rock and got 6 stitches. Personally me and brier bushes don't get along.

I think a good practice for fields to get into would be during set-up for the day that owners or managers send out some employees to visually inspect the fields. In fact, I'm going to recommend this to my field owner tomorrow when I report for work.
Good luck, Goldy.

Actually, most waivers state that when you sign off you are sayin the field has no responsibility for your injuries, weather from natural causes, or from the fields employees negligence..

and to even suggest that the guy should sue them is totally rediculous, nobody likes it when local .fields go out of business, but everyone likes to sue people for nothing!

I think its time to quit suing people for friviolious things.

The field owner did not push the guy into the steak, it was the dudes fault.


But dont get me wrong, they could have used something different, such as sandbags, which the only thing you have to worry about it a papercut... lol only if you have really really weak skin.. and if you do, you shouldnt be playing paintball.
