             11/14/19 - Just a reminder that tomorrow is the LAST day to pre-register for the STAR WARS CHRISTMAS Theme Day and save $20 at www.lofpb.weebly.com.

             11/13/19 - Players! Tonight is the night! Make sure and tune into the History Channel at 9PM and watch FORGED IN FIRE where our own Billy Salyers will be competeing. If you made our anniversary celebration on Sat., Oct. 26, you got to see some of Billy's magic first hand.

             11/05/19 - MARK YOUR CALENDARS! It's that time of year again. We'll be switching to our 'Winter' hours this week. That means Saturday hours will be 10am to 5pm and Sundays will be 12pm to 5pm until the time changes back. Don't forget to lock in your spots for our STAR WARS CHRISTMAS Theme Day (Dec. 7) by going to www.lofpb.weebly.com and save $20 until Nov. 15. We're running a $77 special to celebrate Star Wars premiere in 1977. After Nov. 15, everything is full price. See y'all this weekend.

             11/03/19 - For those that remembered to set their clocks back, we'll be opening at 1PM today. To those that forgot, we'll be opening at 2PM. Today is the last day for 'Fall' hours. Tomorrow we start our 'Winter' hours.

             10/28/19 - Thanks to all who came out and helped us celebrate our anniversary this past weekend. Unfortunately, the weather was the winner this weekend and kept attendance low. But, not to be outdone,we are extending the celebration to include this coming weekend (Nov. 2-3). So, if you didn't get the chance to attend, don't worry. You still can. We've still got lots of prizes and goodies to send home with players (including an ultra-rare 'PURPLE' LOF Barrel Sock). All 'BLACK' LOF Barrel Sock owners can get a FREE bag of paint this weekend with their paid walk-on. Everyone who received an Anniversay Patch this past weekend can use it to get a FREE walk-on (YOU MUST HAVE YOUR PATCH WITH YOU). Special thanks to Billy Salyers (of Yellow Rose Forge) for coming out, setting up and teaching us all a little about forging. I, for one, cannot wait to go take his forging class and make my own blade, handle and leather sheath soon. Let the party continue!!!

             10/23/19 - Great news concerning our Anniversary Celebration this coming weekend. Not only will Billy Salyers (of Yellow Rose Forge) be attending the event, he'll be forging in the front yard and cutting our anniversary cake with the blade he competed with on the TV show KNIFE OR DIE (on the History channel). Looks like Billy will be on this new season of FORGED IN FIRE as well, as we caught a glimpse of him on the commercial announcing the new season. Lots of fun to be had and the weather forecasts are changing for the better the closer we get to the event.

             10/06/19 - Had some really great groups this past week and weekend. We're really looking forward to the upcoming ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION on Oct. 26 & 27. Make sure and pre-sign on our weebly page (www.lofpb.weebly.com) or come by the field and pre-sign so you'll get this year's commemorative patch! It's $15 for Saturday or $15 for Sunday, or $25 for BOTH! Only players that pre-sign will receive the commemorative patch. We've got new games, food, music and lots more planned for the event. It's always a favorite of mine, just because so many 'old school' LOF players drop in and say 'Hi' at our anniversaries. Pre-sign ASAP!!!

             09/22/19 - Congratulations to the 'Green Team' for their victory in yesterdays AREA 51 Theme Day. They came off the starting line hard and didn't let up until the final piece of evidence was delivered, ending the game. We saw a lot of 'heart' from many of the players, which made it particularly difficult to choose a single MVP (Most Valuable Player). So, we didn't! We actually chose three. Congrats to Anthony Prochilo, Kooper Cairnes and Jack Wankel. For their efforts, these 3 gentlemen will all receive a FREE pass to LOF's upcoming ANNIVERSARY EVENT and will have All-Day Air and a case of Grafitti Paintballs to go with it. We are working through the photos and hope to have them up in the next couple of days so everyone can see what a great time we had. But, the question still remains.......Are THEY out there?

             08/20/19 - Summer's gone! Well, not entirely, but we're getting ready for our annual 'season change' where weekdays open up and weekends fill up. Just have a couple more 'summer' groups this week and then we gear up for larger weekend turnouts. It's always an exciting time as 'open weekdays' allow us to tidy up the field and replace buildings/bunkers where needed. Also, we start planning and having theme days in the cooler months. Our AREA 51 is just around the corner and over half the limited spots are gone. Don't forget to pre-sign ASAP if you want to play in this game. It's gonna be outta-this-world! We're still looking for more solid satellite dish antennas (6-foot and larger) and mannequins (for props), so please let us know of any you may see.

             08/14/19 - Had a great weekend. Had lots of new players and made lots of new friends. Saturday saw the return of several 'veteran' players we hadn't seen in some time and it was like 'Homecoming'. Sunday, we had 2 bachelor parties, a birthday celebration and several regulars. Our AREA 51 Theme Day is approximately half full now, so if you want to assure you get to play in it, go to www.lofpb.weebly.com and pre-register ASAP. $25 will lock in a spot in the game.

             08/06/19 - We're hearing lots of chatter online and at the field about players thinking about attending the upcoming AREA 51 Theme Day on Sat., Sept. 21. If you really want to play in this game, we highly reccomend pre-signing ASAP to lock in your spot. There are only 65 spots available in this theme day and last month's 'early bird' savings deal got the ball rolling fast! Our player roster is filling up more and more each day. Don't miss out like so many have done at past theme days on all the fun we had. You can lock in your spot with $25 at www.lofpb.weebly.com and assure you'll be in on the action. If you've never been to a theme day, check out these videos from some of our past theme days: 2017 Santa vs Grinch, 2017 Wild West, 2013 Holy Grail, 2016 Santa vs Grinch & 2017 Wild West.

             08/04/19 - Congrats to our scenario team, the 4F SQUAD, on their performance in yesterday's WALKING DEAD SURVIVE OR DIE 2019 big game at Command Decisions Wargame Center in Taylorsville, NC. Not only did our side (The Kingdom) win, but our squad also brought the MVT (Most Valuable Team) award for the second year in a row! Thanks to all the 'regular' players from LOF that helped us win the fight! The heat was brutal, but everyone fought through it (and several showers) to claim the win. Hoping all of you (and more) will accompany the 4F Squad to the FULDA GAP game at the same field in Nov. later this year.

             08/02/19 - Just a reminder that we will be CLOSED this Saturday (Aug. 3), but will be open extended hours on Sunday (Aug. 4) from 11am to 6pm.

             08/01/19 - Congrats to all the players that used the 'early bird' pre-registration for our upcoming AREA 51 Theme Day and saved some serious cash. You can't get those savings anymore, but you can lock in your spot in this limited-players game by going to www.lofpb.weebly.com and pre-registering.

             07/24/19 - Today we announce our next theme day. AREA 51 will be held on Saturday, Sept. 21, 2019. Sign up and join the collective that wants to expose the evidence found after infiltrating Area 51, or join the A51 Security forces and destroy all evidence. But, be careful, alien abductions will take 'subjects' from both sides! Log on to www.lofpb.weebly.com before Aug. 1 and get the 'early bird' package for only $51 (It will be $73 after Aug.1).

             06/07/19 - Here's a great way to save some money playing paintball. Today (06/07/19) through next Friday (06/14/19), we're offering a LOF SUPER SUMMER PASS that will allow you to play EVERY Saturday in July with Walk-on, All-Day Air and a bag of paint for only $99! Hurry, 'cause they won't be available after next week. Log on to www.lofpb.weebly.com and purchase today.

             04/27/19 - Get out your STAR WARS costumes and dress up for play on May 4th during our 'May the 4th be with you' Special. All players dressing like a Star Wars character (a REAL costume, not a Star Wars t-shirt) will receive a Free Walk-on and All-Day Air on their next visit to LOF. The 'Best Dressed' will receive a FREE THEME DAY PASS, including FREE Walk-On, FREE All-Day Air and a FREE case of Graffiti Paintballs (an $80 value) to the LOF STAR WARS THEME DAY in December 2019.

             03/31/19 - Thanks to everyone who came out for our Monty Python Holy Grail Theme Day yesterday. Congrats to the Black Knight (Frank Sims) and his knights on winning the overall Holy Grail Theme Day. They won over King Arthur (Aron Higley) and his knights by a final score of 6,580 to 5,050. But alas, the search for the Holy Grail will continue as the Killer Rabbits of Caerbannog (Thomas Sweezy and Nick Montaperto) successfully protected the Grail from being claimed by either team. Thanks to all who played in the game, to those who dressed up for the part, and to the 4F Squad team for reffing the event! Check out the pics of the fun we had on our SPLATSHOTS Facebook page.

             02/18/19 - Thanks to all the couples, groups and individuals that came out and played in our Valentine's Day Special games on Saturday. We made a lot of new friends and had some amazing games. Photos from the events are going up today on the SPLATSHOTS page as well as the pre-registration for our Monty Python Holy Grail Theme Day will be opening up on the WEEBLY page. There are (3) packages available, all saving you money off the 'day-of-event' prices. Start working on your costumes now, because the 'Best Dressed' player at the Holy Grail Theme Day will go home with a FREE case of Grafitti paintballs!

             01/30/19 - Looks like we may get another break this weekend and the temperature on Saturday should reach in the mid to high 50's. We are scheduled to be closed on Sunday (Superbowl Sunday), but will gladly open if someone has a group of 10 or more players and will put down a $50 non-refundable deposit (can be used upon your arrival).

             01/25/19 - Lots of good stuff happening tomorrow. The weather is supposed to be good for the first time in 6 weeks. To celebrate, we're gonna hold a B.A.N.D. (Bring A Newbie Day) day. Every paying player can save $10 on their own walk-on by bringing a 'newbie' (never played at LOF before) along with them. Let's have some fun while we can. Never know what February's weather will bring. We'll also be giving away a FREE pass to our next scheduled theme day, Monty Python's Holy Grail on Sat., Mar. 30.

             01/22/19 - GOOD NEWS! Looks like we may have our first good weather weekend since SANTA vs GRINCH back in December. For the first time in several weeks, the bad weather is during the week and not on the weekend. Let's take advantage and sling some paint!! LOF is open Saturday (Jan. 26) from 10am to 6pm and Sunday (Jan. 27) from 1pm to 6pm.

             01/20/19 - Thanks to all the players that braved the weather this past weekend and came out and played with us. It was wet on Saturday and rather cool on Sunday, but both days saw some awesome games. We already have a lot on our plate for tomorrow, Monday, Jan 21, but we agreed to open for a group from 12PM to 3PM, so if you wanna get a few hours of paint-slinging in, come out and join in!

             01/16/19 - We've had some 'iffy' weather the first couple of weekends of 2019 but our players have managed to squeeze in some playtime here and there. Usually had at least one good day (either Saturday or Sunday), but this coming weekend, both days look questionable. Regardless, we'll be open as long as the traveling to and from the field is safe for our players. Come get in on the fun!

             01/01/19 - HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE!

             12/31/18 - First chance to play in 2019! Come play with us this Saturday (Jan. 5) from 10am to 6pm and Sunday (Jan. 6) from 1pm to 6pm. We already have groups scheduled for both days, so come on out and jump in on the fun! Thanks to everyone who played with us in 2018. We look forward to serving everyone in 2019 and making many more memories. See ya in the middle!

             12/26/18 - Last chance to play in 2018! We'll be playing this Saturday (Dec. 29) from 10am to 6pm and Sunday (Dec. 30) from 1pm to 6pm. Still have a few Christmas specials for sale as well. See you here!

             12/25/18 - MERRY CHRISTMAS from Line of Fire Paintfields!! We are, of course, closed today for Christmas, but will resume normal working hours tomorrow. Make sure and bring your new paintball toys out this weekend and try them out! Still have a few markers and such for those who received 'Christmas money' and LOF Gift Cards. Have a great Christmas and spend some time with the ones you love.

             12/23/18 - Just a couple of days left to Christmas shop at LOF! We'll be open for shopping AND playing today, Sunday, Dec. 23 from 1pm to 6pm and tomorrow, Monday, Dec. 24 from 10:30am to 3pm. Got lots of guns, goggles, paintballs, stocking stuffers and gift cards available. Let's play!

             12/12/18 - Christmas is just around the corner so we're opening special hours on weekdays the next 2 weeks to help out on your Christmas shopping. This Thursday (Dec. 13) and Friday (Dec. 14), the retail store will be open from 1pm to 6pm. We'll also run the same hours next week, Wednesday (Dec. 19) through Friday (Dec. 21).

             12/12/18 - ANNOUNCEMENT: In the ever growing tradition of dodging weather, we have decided to move the REINDEER GAMES to Sunday, Dec. 16 instead of Saturday. If you were entitled to a FREE pass, but can't make Sunday, we will still honor it on Saturday (Dec. 15).

             12/06/18 - Okay, due to the predicted weather for this weekend, LOF will: 1) Move the REINDEER GAMES to Sat., Dec. 15 (10am to 6pm) 2) Open for play on Sat., Dec 8 at 10am with expectations to close early (as soon as weather starts). 3) Give all players a FREE walk-on with the purchased of All Day Air and a bag of paint. 4) Close on Sunday, Dec. 9.

             12/03/18 - Congrats to the Grinch (Dan Rice), Max (Joseph Lawter) and the horde of gremlins on their win last Sunday at the SANTA vs GRINCH Theme Day. The final score was 2300 to 3550. Don't think for a minute that this wasn't a hard fought battle. When the 3-horn blast sounded on the last mission, ending the game, Grinch had succesfully delivered 6 objects to the correct buildings in the 'city' field, but Santa (Thomas Sweezy), Rudolph (Zack Lail) and the elves had delivered 5 toys and the 6th was mere steps away from being delivered. Talk about a 'photo finsh'! Unfortunately, it was so dark when the game ended that photos are not available. You can check out 'action' shots from throughout the day on our 'SPLATSHOTS' FaceBook page. Congrats to all the winners in our giveaways, to Dustin Bailey for 'Best Dressed', to Jeremy Oliver (MVP for Grinch) and Matt McMahan (MVP for Santa) who both won Proto Rize markers for their efforts. Players, don't forget that if you used our 'online' pre-registration option, you get a FREE Walk-On to this Saturday's REINDEER GAMES (10am to 6pm). We may move the REINDEER GAMES to Saturday, Dec. 15 due to the forecasted weather for this Saturday. An announcement will be made this Thursday letting everyone know what the final date is. Thanks again to our 'special' characters for playing their parts. Dan for his 4th year playing a part. Joseph Lawter and Zach Lail for jumpimg in for their first year, and to Thomas Sweezy, who was drafted at the last minute when our Santa failed to show. Thanks to the 4F Squad for reffing the event, to Charity Salyers for brining cakes and cupcakes and mostly to you, the players, for being the heart of our games.

             12/01/18 - Okay, so everybody has one more day to prepare for SANTA vs GRINCH which will take place tomorrow. Don't miss out on this historic game. The last SvG theme day EVER at LOF!! This year's tie breaker (the score stands at Santa: 8 and Grinch:8) will determine FOREVER who has the rights to Christmas. Get your game plans together, work on your costumes or just come by the store and make purchases. The play fields are closed today, but the retail store is open from 12pm to 5pm. A great time to shop without a bunch of players filling up the store. Guns, tanks, masks, gift cards, and lots of other goodies for Christmas are available.
