From the Field
05/31/16 - Just a reminder to everyone wanting to play in the STAR WARS Theme Day this Saturday (June 4) that tomorrow (Wednesday, June 1) is the LAST DAY to sign up online at www.lofpb.weebly.com. If you don't sign up by 6PM tomorrow, you'll have to wait till gameday and that means there's a good chance you'll miss the first mission or two. That is, IF there are any spots left available. Sign up today and save money!!!
04/27/16 - THEME DAY ANNOUNCEMENT - We are sorry for any inconveniences, but we are being FORCED (get it?) to move the date for our STAR WARS Theme Day to June 4, 2016. We were truly looking forward to holding this particular theme day in a couple of weeks, but alas, life has thrown us some curves. Due to a family health issue, requiring us to spend much of the last 2 weeks in hospitals and doctors offices and a planned surgery in the upcoming weeks, we have failed to spend the needed time on planning and building for a theme day. Also, those that attended LOF this past weekend and were subject to the fallen tree in our 'city' field (which crushed one building, but was kinda fun and unique) can confirm that it's gonna take a day or two to remove said tree. With all this, and several groups wanting to book for the same weekend, we decided to delay the date and give everyone more time to finish their costumes ('Best Dressed' goes home with a case of Grafitti) and their entry in the Build-a-Droid contest ('Best Life-Sized Droid' goes home with a case of Grafitti paintballs). We'll be contacting everyone who pre-signed online to see if they want to transfer their fee to the new date, post the funds to their account, or get a refund. Thanks for your understanding. May the Force be with you! (And, now you have no excuse to not spend time with your mother on this Mother's Day weekend!)
04/17/16 - Another great weekend (that's 2 in a row!) where we had some awesome games and made a lot of new friends. The countdown is on to the May 7 STAR WARS Theme Day and the roster is starting to fill up. Don't get left out. Log onto www.lofpb.weebly.com and pre-register to save money and assure you get to play in this 'stellar' game. Also, our Summer Camp (June 29 - July 1) is filling up fast. You can grab a spot at the same page we just mentioned. See everyone next weekend for more paint-slingin' fun!!!
03/23/16 - We'll be closed this Sunday (March 27) for Easter, so hop on over and join in on the fun this Saturday. We'll be throwing in a couple of Easter-themed games along with the other regular games. Last year, we never saw so many raw eggs shot in single game before during our 'EGG RACE' game. And, we got lots of chocolate to give away. The fun that starts at 10am and runs till 6pm.
03/20/16 - A great weekend. Awesome weather on Friday and Saturday with good crowds and even a small band of 'die-hard' players on Sunday during 'not-so-perfect' weather. Made some new friends each day and really enjoyed running games. Check out our Facebook page for photos from each day. Also, don't forget to visit www.lofpb.weebly.com to pre-sign and save money for the STAR WARS Theme Day on May 7.
03/10/16 - Looks like the day to play this upcoming weekend is Saturday (Mar. 12). Some weather may be with us on Sunday. Also, don't forget to visit www.lofpb.weebly.com to pre-sign and save money for the STAR WARS Theme Day on May 7.
03/07/16 - Had a good 'regular' Saturday (including 5 birthdays), follwed by the first 'Pump-Only' Sunday for 2016. We saw everything from old school pumps to the latest markers in the pump world on Sunday and the games varied just as much. Never knew a pump center-contro, could be so exciting. Check out the Facebook page for 'action' shots from the days activities.
02/28/16 - Thanks to everyone who came out and helped us have a great weekend. Some awesome games and we really enjoyed making new friends. Don't forget that next weekend we'll have a regular day on Saturday (Mar. 5)(10am - 6pm), but a 'PUMP-ONLY' day on Sunday (Mar 6)(11am - 5pm). On Sunday, $30 will get you walk-on, Air and a bag of Graffiti. Get your pumps out and come have a blast with us.
02/14/16 - Thanks to everyone who braved the cold temps and came out to take part in our VALENTINES DAY SPECIAL today. Lots of cool (no pun intended) games were played and all the ladies were kickin' butt! Congrats to everyone who won chocolates and prizes in today's games. Also, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Collin Austin who came out to celebrate his 15th trip around the sun. Sorry we had several groups 'wuss' out. You guys would have had a blast. See everyone next weekend. Hopefully with a little higher temperatures! LOL. Stay warm and safe!
02/10/16 - Just to clarify (since we've had several phone calls), this Sunday is LOF's annual VALENTINES DAY SPECIAL. It doesn't cost any extra to play, in fact, you can SAVE money. Every 'paying' guy (meaning he purchased a walk-on, all-day air & a bag of paintballs), can bring a gal for FREE (meaning she will get walk-on, equipment (if needed), air, and 250 paintballs FREE). You can also win special Valentines prizes in the special 'valentine' games we hold. The gal does not have to be your girlfriend or spouse. We have had players over the years introduce their sisters, aunts, moms and grandmoms to our sport. A great time to get new players into paintball.
02/06/16 - We apologize for any inconvenience, but LOF will be CLOSED on Superbowl Sunday (Feb. 7). Start making plans for next weekend where Saturday (Feb. 13) will be a 'regular' open walk-on day from 10am to 6pm and Sunday (Feb. 14) will be our Valentine's Day Special (1pm to 6pm) where every paying guy can bring a gal for FREE. Special Valentines games will be played.
02/06/16 - Happy Birthday to Austin Laughter who brought his buddies out to celebrate his birthday today. An awesome group of gentlemen that we look forward to having out again soon.
01/28/16 - Okay, the snow is slowly going away and should almost completely be gone from LOF by this Saturday. Looks like we'll have a good crowd to play with - a couple of birthday parties and some of our 'regulars'. Temps are supposed to be nice also so bring your equipment and let's play!
01/24/16 - Well, LOF will remained CLOSED today. Our field is up and ready to play but the surrounding roads are still fairly dangerous. NC 191 & 280 are fairly clear, but the side roads are still covered in ice. We look forward to having some 'snow games' very soon though. Everyone stay home and stay safe.
01/21/16 - Charge up your video camera batteries and get ready for the snow, cause LOF is having its annual "Paintball Snowman" Contest. As soon as the snow gets here, go out and make a snowman (or 20) and show us at least one snowman involved in some paintball action. Send us the video or paste it on our LOF Facebook page for everyone to see and you may win a FULL pass to our April theme day (Star Wars: Battlefront or HALO 5 - to be decided). Lights! Camera! ACTION!!!
01/19/16 - Some players say they don't like to play in the snow. We find that MOST of those players have never even TRIED playing in the snow. We look forward to our first day of 'snow play' at LOF in 2016. Keep a watch on the weather and plan to come out on the first good winter storm and try some paintball in the snow.
01/17/16 - Well, we only got a dusting of snow, which was completely gone by the time we opened today. We started out slow at the field and started playing with 'pump' markers, then progressed to 'semi-auto' as more players arrived. At least the pump players got some practice in for our upcoming 'Pump-only Sunday' in February. If anyone wants to play this Monday or Tuesday (local schools are out) give us a call and leave your name and number. If we get enough requests, we'll open up . Later!
01/15/16 - As of this morning, voting between HALO 5 and STAR WARS: BATTLEFRONT to be our next theme day (April 2016) stands with Star Wars ahead by 9 votes. If you're a HALO fan and you want LOF's next theme day to be based on HALO 5, then you better log onto www.lofpb.weebly.com and vote. Most votes wins, but we're only voting until Jan. 31st. Looks like Saturday is the best day to play this weekend, so we'll see you all tomorrow.
01/06/16 - What theme day will we run in April 2016? That's up to you! Log onto www.lofpb.weebly.com and vote between HALO 5 and STAR WARS: BATTLEFRONT. Most votes wins. Later.
01/01/16 - HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone!!! LOF will be open tomorrow from 10am to 6pm. Come out and join us for the first day of play in 2016! We will be closed this Sunday, but return to regular weekend hours next weekend.
12/27/15 - Made some new friends this past weekend, the last time we'll be playing in 2015. We'll be working on inventory this week and getting ready to play on Saturday, Jan. 2, 2016. If you want to play this weekend, come on Saturday as we'll be closed on Sunday (Jan. 3). Also, there's only a few days left to save $100 on the 2016 Summer Celebrity Paintball Camp. After Jan. 1, the prices increases to $249.95 and then increases again on June 1 to the full price of $299.99. So if you wanna lock in a spot at camp for $199, go to www.lofpb.weebly.com and save $100. See ya'll next year (2016)!!!
12/25/15 - MERRY CHRISTMAS everybody! We hope you all got to spend time with love ones, eat lots of food and reflect on the day. Hope to see everyone tomorrow using all those new markers, masks and gift cards we sold. We'll be open 10am - 6pm.
12/22/15 - We've pretty much wrapped up playing until the Saturday after Christmas, but if there's something you gotta have for Christmas, call and leave us your name and number. We'll be in and out repeatedly over the next several days and we'll call and let you know when you can pick anything up. Had quite a few last minute shoppers this morning. Looking forward to catching up on posting photos over the next several days. Keep checking the 'Pictures' page.
12/20/15 - After several requests for us to open on Monday, Dec. 21 and a confirmed booking for a birthday party the same day, we have decided to open from 12pm to 5 pm so everyone can get that 'last game' in before Christmas. The weather looks to be good, so we'll probably have a small crowd. Come out and join the fun and grab that 'last minute' stocking stuffer for the paintballer in your life. We still have a few of our Christmas favorites available: ball haulers, LOF Gift certificates, Profiler and Grill helmets, Tippmann A-5 and Cronus markers, 2 and 3 pod belts, LOF supetubes, etc. See you soon!
12/15/15 - It's that time of year again. People are looking for 'stocking stuffers' for their loved ones and we have one of the best....... LOF GIFT CARDS!! Available in $10, $25, $50 and $100 demominations. You can purchase them on our website at http://www.lofpb.weebly.com, or come in the store and purchase them. For those purchased on the website, the last day we will mail any out is this Friday (Dec 18). After Friday, you'll have to pick up at the retail store. This is also the last week to order special items that we can guarantee delivery for Christmas. Don't forget that a pass to our Summer Celebrity Paintball Camp (June 29 - July 1, 2016) makes a great gift as well. You can save $100 by purchasing before Dec. 31. Until the end of the year, you can purchase a pass to the 3-day camp for only $199 (regularly $299). We already have 8 players signed up for camp and we cap it at 30, so don't miss out. Grab your spot today and learn how to play like the pros!!!
12/07/15 - Santa and his elves pulled off another victory at LOF's Annual Santa vs Grinch Theme Day this past Saturday setting the overall score to: Santa - 8 / Grinch - 6. But don't think it was easy for Santa (Wayne Smith) and his helpers. The Grinch (Nick Slagle) and his gremlins kept the victory within reach all day long and, at the final air horn blast, were as close as 175 points. Kudos to everyone for playing hard and keeping things fun. Hats off to the referees for staying on top of things and making sure props were in place and at the ready throughout the day. Congrats to the winners of the MVP awards, Erin and Briana, who deserved the Proto Rails they received. Don't forget that if you payed to play in the SvG event, you get to come to REINDEER GAMES on Sat., Dec.12 for FREE. We'll take care of your Walk-on Fee and All Day Air Fee, you just pay for paint. Also, start getting ready for our next theme day, HALO 5 in April 2016. Later.
12/03/15 - Registration for Santa vs Grinch Theme Day is officially 'SOLD OUT'. We are taking names for a 'will call' list in case anyone backs out or can't make it. Looking forward to running a great theme day for everyone this Saturday. Come dressed up for Christmas. Best dressed gets a FREE case of paintballs!
12/02/15 - Only a few spots left for Saturday's SANTA vs GRINCH THEME DAY. Sign up ASAP at: http://www.lofpb.weebly.com
11/25/15 - LOF will be OPEN this Friday, Nov. 27 from 12pm to 6pm. We've had several groups call in requesting field time, so we'll give it a go. Come out and burn some turkey off.
11/24/15 - More great stuff for LOF's Dec 5th SANTA vs GRINCH (SvG) Game. We just learned that pro-scenario player, Jason 'Foolybear' Lineberger, will be in attendance at the SvG event and he'll be bringing the all-new Gtek from Planet Eclipse for players to try out. And, while were talking Christmas, Foolybear and his teammates from scenario team CAPITAL OFFENSE will once again head up our 2016 Summer Celebrity Paintball camp (June 29 - July 01, 2016) and a pass to camp would make an awesome stocking stuffer for your paintballer this Christmas. Now's the time to save money as well. Just head on over to http://www.lofpb.weebly.com where the cost of our 2016 paintball camp is only $199 (a $100 savings) through Dec 31. As of Jan 1, 2016, the prices goes up to $250 and on June 1, 2016 goes full price at $299 for the 3-day camp. You can also secure a spot for the SvG event (less than half the spots are left) on the same site. Lots of great stuff coming up at LOF!!!.
11/22/15 - An awesome weekend. Saturdays weather was spectacular and Sunday's was clear but cold and steadily getting colder. Thanks to everyone who came out and shared all the fun with us. Several players picked up their anniversary patches and prizes they won at the anniversary event on Dec 7. A local company grabbed 4 more spots for the Santa vs Grinch (SvG) Theme Day, so they're disappearing quick. If you plan on playing in the SvG, we advise you to go to http://www.lofpb.weebly.com and grab your spot before they're all gone. We've been contacted by a couple of groups wanting to know if we'll be open on the Friday after Thanksgiving (Nov. 27). If you're interested in playing on this day, please give us a call or e-mail us and let us know so we can get a big enough group to open.
11/9/15 - Well, our LOF Anniversary patches arrived today......AFTER the event was over. If you attended the LOF Anniversary event on Dec. 7, make sure and pick up your patch on your next visit to LOF.
11/8/15 - Thanks so much to everyone who came out yesterday and helped us celebrate another year! We had a blast running games for 13 hours straight! It was great to see some 'old school' players and add some new members to the 'LOF Family'. Congrats to all the winners in our giveaways. Pictures coming soon. Stay tuned.
11/04/15 - CONTEST TIME! Since we're putting together a slideshow to present during our Anniversary celebration this Saturday (10am to 11pm), we've decided to make a contest out of it. Wanna win a really neat prize? All you have to do is go to our 'Pictures' page. Go to a date you played at LOF. Find the best picture of yourself playing and either post it on our FaceBook page or e-mail it to us at email@example.com.

10/29/15 - Halloween costumes are, by no means, mandatory this Saturday, but we are gonna send the 'Best Dressed' player home with an awesome prize! Weather looks to be great for Saturday as well and we have a couple of groups planning on coming out to play. Also, make sure and save some money by pre-registering for our Nov. 7 Anniversary celebration before closing time this Sunday. Up until then, you can get All-Day Walk-On (10am to 11pm) AND All-Day Air for $21. After that, it's $25 for walk-on and $10 for All-Day Air. That's a savings of $14, so go to http://lofpb.weebly.com and sign up today!
10/25/15 - Had some great games with some great players this past weekend. Can't wait to share the photos. Stay tuned.
10/23/15 - Great weather for tomorrow and it looks like a crowd is coming. Let's play!
10/14/15 - Well, sorry to say it, but we'll be cancelling this Saturday's HOLY GRAIL Theme Day. We're still feeling the ripples (pun intended) from the last couple of weeks rain. We were forced to move the theme day to the only date available for us at LOF and it happens to be the same one many institutions have rescheduled for as well. Over half our intended players (and referees) have had to 'bow out' due to festivals, band competitions, etc. Also, there's a growing trend for players to 'wait till the last minute' to sign up for special events we hold. In the old days, (not too many years ago) players would sign up as soon as they heard of a scheduled event and it would 'sell out' long before the event's date. This made things so much easier to plan (food, paint, air, size of missions, etc), but, in today's world, people are expected to multi-task so much it makes it much harder to plan ahead. Make sure and pre-register for our upcoming Anniversary (Nov. 7), and our Santa vs. Grinch (Dec. 5) as soon as possible at http://lofpb.weebly.com/ . It REALLY helps us plan the events. To all the players who pre-registered online, let us know if you want to transfer your fee to another upcoming event (Anniversary, Santa vs. Grinch, etc) or come out and play this Saturday as planned. To all the groups we turned away, let us know if you would rather come out this Saturday or keep the date we moved you to. On the bright side, all the props we've repainted/rebuilt are gonna look awesome for next year's HOLY GRAIL! smile emoticon Gonna have some awesome weather this Saturday, so grab your friends and come out for a 'regular' walk-on day at LOF. See you then.
10/12/15 - Players, don't forget that tomorrow (Wednesday) is the last day to pre-register online for Saturday's Monty Python Holy Grail Theme Day. Sign up ASAP to save money. Cost to sign up after Wednesday goes up. This is the second funnest event we hold each year and always generates the best tales shared for years at the field. Don't miss out. Pre-register at: http://lofpb.weebly.com/.
10/05/15 - The HOLY GRAIL Theme Day has been rescheduled for Saturday, Oct. 17. Sorry for any inconveniences this may cause, but the solid week of rain has taken its toll. Don't forget to pre-registration for HOLY GRAIL or any upcoming events at: http://lofpb.weebly.com/.
10/02/15 - Due to the forecasted weather for this weekend, Saturday's NIGHTGAME will be postponed to a later date. The actual date will be announced on Monday. All who have prepaid can use their entry fee toward another day or leave it for use on the new date. As the 6 days of constant rain have not allowed us to work on the field for the Holy Grail Theme Day, chances are it will be delayed as well. Again, the actual reassigned date will be annouced on Monday. We will still run regular hours tomorrow (10a-6p) for all the bachelor and corporate groups that had already planned to come out and play. In fact, now that there's no nightgame, we may play a little later than 6pm. Everybody do their 'anti-rain' dance for tomorrow. We will be closed as scheduled this Sunday. Pre-registration for upcoming events is always available at: http://lofpb.weebly.com/.
09/25/15 - With all the rain yesterday, today and forecasted for tomorrow, we have decided to postpone tomorrow's PUMP/PISTOL ONLY NIGHTGAME until next Saturday, Oct. 3 (6:30pm - 11:00pm). We've contacted most of the players already signed up and very few can't make it next week. Remember, LOF has limited 'pump' markers for rent, so if you need a pump marker sign up quick! There's still time to pre-sign online at: http://lofpb.weebly.com/.
09/20/15 - Had some great times this weekend. A couple of bachelor parties on Saturday and a new 'Springs' group on Sunday. Almost a mini-homecoming on Saturday with several LOF family members returning after a long time away. Lots of great weather and gameplay. Looking forward to next Saturday's nightgame (6:30-11:00pm) following a regular day of play (10am-6pm) and a regular Sunday (10am-6pm). Start signing up for the HOLY GRAIL Theme Day on Oct. 10th. One of the funnest theme days each year and it's the 40th anniversary of Monty Python's Holy Grail movie, which one lucky player will go home with the Special Edition BluRay (well, they'll go home with a coupon for it as the BluRay isn't released until Oct 27).
09/18/15 - We are all sad to hear of the passing of Paul 'Chief' Weeks, who was the backbone of the West Hendrson High ROTC for many years. We have many fond memories of him bringing the ROTC youth out to play at LOF. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Justin Weeks (son of 'Chief' Weeks and member of LOF's own 4F Squad for many years) and his family. And to 'Chief'......."Well done, soldier!"
08/27/15 - Players, if you're not getting enough paintball action over the weekend, then come out on Monday, Sept. 7 (Labor Day) and play with us from 10am to 3PM. If you buy a walk-on on Saturday and a walk-on on Sunday, you get a FREE walk-on on Monday! It's gonna be a blast! And, just so there's no confusion..... Monday, Sept. 7 is an 'Open Walk-On' day. Anyone can show up and jump in on the fun.
08/20/15 - Players, come out this Saturday (8/22/15) and join us for our BACK-TO-SCHOOL Special. Print and use the coupon on the title page to save money!
08/02/15 - Well, call AMC and let them know that Rick and his forces are no more so cancel all shooting for the next season of Walking Dead. LOL, that is if our outcome has anything to do with it. The Terminus forces were able to defeat Rick and his forces to win our Walking Dead Theme Day yesterday. We had a blast. Some of our regular theme day players from SC and TN showed up and added to the fun. Congrats to Shiela Salyers (as Michonne) and Lamar Dempsey (as Daryl Dixon), who won 'Best Dressed' and will share a FREE case of paintballs on their next trip. Also our MVP award goes to Billy Salyers, who was a HUGE factor in the Terminus team winning. Billy receives a Tippmann A5 for his efforts. We've got lots of pictures and video (some taken with a drone thanks to Bill Reynolds) that we'll be posting soon. Congrats to the Terminus team again.
07/18/15 - ALmost needed snokels and fins for today's activities, but the players didn't let a little (well, MORE than a little) rain stop them. Happy Birthday to Ian Bryson who came out and celebrated his special day with friends and family. Thanks to all who came out and had a good wet time with us. If nothing else, the rain gave us a break from the heat that started early this morning. See everybody tomorrow (1PM to 6PM).
07/12/15 - We've been reaching near record setting temperatures over the past several weeks. Please make sure you stay well hydrated in ALL outdoor activities.
06/29/15 - Wow! Summer is here already and it's time for LOF's annual SUMMER CELEBRITY PAINTBALL CAMP. It's a 3-day camp that starts this Wednesday and runs through Friday, 9am to 5pm each day.

06/24/15 - ******ANNOUNCEMENT!!!******* Due to the 90% chance of SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS forecasted for this Saturday (June 27), we have checked with the majority of traveling players and groups and decided to postpone the Walking Dead Theme Day to Sat., Aug 1, 2015.

05/26/15 - We've had several 'action-packed' weekends lately and added a lot of cool new players to the LOF family. Got lots of changes just around the corner that will make the field(s) even cooler to play. Night games and pump-only events are in the planning stages and the final storyline for the Walking Dead Theme Day is getting finished. Don't forget that if you're planning on attending this year's SUMMER CELEBRITY PAINTBALL CAMP, that you'll save money by signing up before June 1. Right now, the cost is $250 for the 3-day camp. On June 1 it goes to $275. Lots more coming. STay tuned.
04/18/15 - We had a great day of paintball today. Several small groups and a church group made for a 'target-rich' environment. The weather was awesome as well. Only one small shower hit while playing today and moved through rather quickly. Tomorrow's weather doesn't look as promising. We'll open and see how it goes. Call before coming out to make sure it's worth your while.
04/04/15 - Thanks to everyone who came out to play today and took part in some SPECTACULAR Easter-themed games. The Egg races on the speedball course were extremely fun to watch. There's a lot of talk from players about coming out this Tuesday (04/07/15) to play, so if you're 'out of school' or 'off work', come out and sling some paint with us from 11am to 6pm. Don't forget to sign up BEFORE closing time on Wednesday (April 8) to save a ton of money on LOF's SUMMER CAMP. Pre-registering before this time will get you in the 3-day camp for $199. After that it will cost you $250. Starting June 1, the price will be $275. We're only taking 20 campers, so sign up ASAP!!

We can always play NEXT weekend. More to come, so keep checking back. Stay safe and stay warm!!!
02/15/15 - To our surprise, we had players today even as cold as it was. There were several small groups that fought on throughout the day and stayed till the end.

02/14/15 - Thanks to everyone who came out and played our Valentine's Day Special today. It was a real treat having so many ladies slinging paint with us. Happy Birthday to Harold Truempy and Casey Brown, who both brought groups out for their birthdays. You never would have known it was cold last night with as warm as it turned out to be this afternoon, but, as soon as the sun went down, the temperatures quickly followed. Gonna be a cold night, so everybody bundle up. The cold is supposed to be with us for several days, so tomorrow's turnout will be a surprise. Everybody get ready for our next theme day, Forrest Gump, on March 28th. Later.

Line of Fire is forever greatful for the sacrifices so many have given over the years. Thanks to everyone who came out this past weekend. We had so many players we hadn't seen in a while (many from the 2006/2007 era) that it seemed like a 'homecoming' event. It was awesome catching up on everyone's lives and what they've been up to. Relationships is what keeps us in the sport!
05/09/14 - Okay kiddies, hold onto your hats. We got a lotta changes coming your way. First off..... our galaxy far, far away just got a little further away. After considering players schedules, weather probabilities, prop building time required, and about 5000 other variables, we've really shaken up our theme day schedule for the rest of the year. Star Wars has been pushed from May 24th to Sept 20. The next theme day to plan on is June 28 when we'll hold our annual MONTY PYTHON'S HOLY GRAIL Theme Day (a crowd favorite), next in line is the WALKING DEAD (Part II) on Aug 02 and then STAR WARS Theme Day on Sept. 20 and the last theme day of 2014 will be SANTA vs GRINC on Dec. 13 followed by REINDEER GAMES on Dec. 20.

03/10/14 - A great weekend for the LOF History books! Our D6 team (LOF VENOM: Daniel Gibbs, Nick Montaperto, Stephen Blankenship & Matt Spence) traveled to Welford, SC to compete in the CFOA 3-Man Tournament. Coming off a disappointing turnout last month (we failed going to finals due to a major penalty for a hot gun), the guys took First Place. Our D5 team (AKIMBO ASSASSINS: Ryan Boykin, Zac Chapman & David Burns) accompanied them and took Second Place in their division. Meanwhile, to the east, our scenario team (4F SQUAD: Dave Reed, Paul Pappas, Chris Petit, James Pratt, Paul Reed, 'Pops' Watson & Nick Waites) traveled to Command Decisions Wargame Center in Taylorsville, NC and helped the 'Green Team' claim the victory at the PLATOON LEADER MAG-FED ONLY event. Here at home we had a super crowd of players including three birthday parties.
03/03/14 - It was so nice to have good weather and great turnouts for our WILD WEST Theme Day on Saturday and airsoft on Sunday. Congrats to the 'Blue' team for winning the WILD WEST THEME DAY. The final score was 3870 to 3710. It's true that the 'Red' team (aka: Ramrod Ranch) ruled the field and most of the mission throughout the day, but a 'lucky' spin for the value of 'gold' and the lack of 'red' players in the final mission handed the victory to the 'Blue' team (aka: Ethan's Acres Ranch). Regardless, it was an awesomely fun day! Why? Because we had some great players with awesome (fun) attitudes playing a well planned theme day written by Arden Gilreath (her first ever). Players have already started pre-registering for May 24th's STAR WARS Theme Day. Sunday saw our first ever airsoft event at LOF. A great group of sportsmen made our initial event an awesome time for all. We look forward to the next.
02/22/14 - Okay, last week to pre-sign for this Saturday's WILD WEST Theme Day and ONLY pre-signers will be allowed in the 'Quick Draw' Competition. The winner of the quick draw competition will go home with a Tippmann TiPX marker! So call in (828-891-2399 or 828-290-8470) and sign up before 6PM on Friday. Share this with friends.
02/20/14 - Can't wait to see Saturday's awesome weather. Winter may finally be losing her grip on us. Sounds like we'll have a crowd on Saturday. More and more players are signing up for the WILD WEST Theme Day on March 1. It should be a great time, but we're gonna make it even better. We decided to pass on a deal to all the theme day lover's out there. If you pre-sign (one week in advance) for the Wild West, Star Wars and Walking Dead Theme Days, were gonna let you have Santa vs Grinch pre-sign for FREE! So, sign up for the Wild West Theme Day before closing (6PM) on Saturday night and you'll be 1/3 of the way to a FREE walk-on to SvG in December. Wild West is limited to 60 players. Star Wars and Walking Dead will be limited to 80 players. Don't miss out. Sign up ASAP!
02/1/14 - Thanks to all the players that came out for our Valentine's Day Special, especially all the ladies. Had quite a few returns from last year's Valentine's event. Most of them won prizes last year and again THIS year! Looks like winter may finally be on the way out and we got lots of chatter on our Facebook page about players coming out over the next 2 weekends. This Saturday is a regular 'open walk on' day and the following Saturday (March 1) is our WILD WEST THEME DAY. Our theme days tend to pull the 'funner' (if that's a word) players out and we always look forward to them. Don't forget. only 60 players get to play the theme day, so call in (828-891-2399 or 828-290-8470) and pre-register to guarantee yourself a spot. Yippe Ki Ah! It's gonna be a blast!
02/11/14 - Players, don't forget that this Saturday is LOF's VALENTINE'S SPECIAL when every paying guy can bring a gal for FREE! It doesn't have to be your better half. It can be a girlfriend, mom, aunt, grandma, etc, basically any special gal in your life. We always have a blast at this event with special games to win prizes throughout the day. See ya'll here.
02/10/14 - Well, this past Saturday was pretty good weather and we had a good turnout of players, but Sunday was..... AWESOME! That's the best weather we've had yet this year! So we will now pause and let everyone who DIDN'T come out take time to give themselves a good swift kick in the rear. No, really.... go ahead.... we'll wait. Okay, mother nature's gonna hit us again this week (looks like mainly on Wednesday) so we'll likely have a little remenants to play in this coming weekend. Well, as they say, "When life gives you lemons,....". Players are continuing to pre-sign for our March 1 WILD WEST THEME DAY as everyone who locks in a spot before Feb 15 gets FREE lunch. Glad to report that 'Milkshake' and some of his buds will be venturing up from SC for the event and our brothers in arms from the Alternative sport, Wes Riley and his crew will be coming down from TN to sling paint that day as well. It's gonna be a blast! Sign up ASAP!!! Call the field at 828-891-2399 or 828-290-8470.
02/07/14 - Looks like we're gonna have some nice weather this weekend to sling some paint. And, have we got a special for you!

02/01/14 - Thanks to all the players that came out today and helped us bring in a new month and celebrate the Superbowl a day early. Hats off to Arden on her chili. I think everybody enjoyed it. I know I did. Happy Birthday to Cole Doster who brought his gang out to celebrate his 13th birthday (a few days late). Glad to see Calvin Lance finally break in his new Tippmann Cronos that he got for Christmas (through Line of Fire). The Wells boys showed up and we gotta say that Doug had a 'golden' day! And several future LOF team members made it out to play. We had some really good games and the weather was awesome. LOF will be closed tomorrow but we hope everyone gets to enjoy Superbowl Sunday with family and friends. Everybody think positive for good weather again next weekend!
01/31/14 - Well, for the first time this year, it looks like we're gonna have FANTASTIC weather for paintballin' this Saturday. We'll also be celebrating the Superbowl on Saturday by giving every paying player a FREE bowl of chili and cornbread (other food will be available for charge). We're gonna close on Sunday due to the Superbowl and the predicted weather, so come out on Saturday and sling some paint with us! Go Broncos!
01/24/14 - Warmer temps tomorrow and even higher on Sunday should bring players out. We have quite a few scheduled for Sunday including a local camp bringing 20 players out. See y'all here.
01/22/14 - Well we're not covered in snow like our front page picture, but it's cold enough to think we are. LOF will be closed today and hopefully reopen at regular hours tomorrow. We hope the majority of you can stay home and stay warm. Looks like Saturday may warm up and give us a break so we can play some ball.
01/17/14 - Had a few players today and expecting a small crowd tomorrow. Come sling some paint with us.
01/15/14 - Snow flurries today, Sunny tomorrow, Snow on Friday.... and the chaos continues. Not to fret, we have plenty of players coming out this Saturday to play, so make plans to be here with us. We may even have a few surprises in store. Mwhahahaha..!
01/11/14 - Rain, Thunder, Lightning..... we're in that 'unpredictable weather' time of season, but fortunately, tomorrow looks to be a good day to play. Several said they'll be here so we'll open at 1PM and play till it's too dark to see. We posted a lot of upcoming dates on the 'Calendar' page including several 2014 theme days. Mark your calendars now, cause 2014 is gonna rock!
01/07/14 - It's COLD!
01/01/14 - HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone! Hope you'll join us this Saturday (Jan. 04) on our first play day of 2014. To celebrate, we're offering a coupon (by clicking here) to save you $6.00 when you come play this Saturday. Just print the coupon and bring it with you to save! Also, the 14th paying player will get a very special treat! Look forward to seeing everyone on Saturday.
12/27/13 - WOW! We had some great groups out this past Thursday and sounds like a lot are coming back this Saturday. They'll be sharing the field with all the other local players coming out to show off (and break in) their new Christmas toys. Tyler Petit was the first player to bring a marker he got for Christmas (from LOF) to play and we gotta say, his Azodin Kaos Pump marker stacked up quite a few kills on Thursday. See everybody tomorrow morning!
12/22/13 - If you haven't finished your last minute Christmas shopping, you'd better get cracking! LOF is here to help with last minute shopping hours from 11AM to 4PM both Monday (Dec 23) and Tues (Dec 24). We almost sold out of Tippmann markers last week but still have a few and more coming in Tomorrow (Monday). Some are already pre-sold, but there are still A-5's, 98's, and Chronos available. Don't forget that A5's and 98's qualify for a $30 mail-in rebate and the FT-12 for a $20 Rebate. If you're not sure what to get your paintballer, grab them a LOF GIFT CARD and let them do the shopping! Thanks to all that played with us in 2013 and helped us have a great year. We met so many new friends this year! We look forward to serving you all in the upcoming year and sharing new adventures (like airsoft and lasertag) with each of you. Merry Christmas from everyone at LOF!!!
12/14/13 - Congrats to the Grinch (Cody Miller), Max (David Burns) and their gremlins on winning this year's Santa vs Grinch Theme Day at LOF. But it didn't go without a fight! Players began the morning during a torential downpour which ended before the first mission was over. It didn't rain at all for the remaining missions throughout the day. We finally wrapped up just beforee dark with the Grinch as the victor. Pics to come. Keep checking back.
12/10/13 - Just a few days till SANTA VS GRINCH! Things are coming together and it looks to be an action-filled theme day. Still a few spots left so call in ASAP if you want in on an awesome time.
12/08/13 - Several players from LOF traveled to THE ALTERNATE SPORT PAINTBALL in Blountville, TN yesterday to attend the last SMACKZ NATION PUMPERS event for 2013. It was a blast. Thanks so much to the staff and players at TAS for making us feel so welcome and showing us such a great time. Can't wait for the 2014 SNP Scedule to be released. Check out the action photos (taken by Arden) on the 'pictures' page here or on our Facebook page.
12/01/13 - Thanks to all who came out and played this weekend. Friday was an awesome day. It started late as a lot of our players were apparently out shopping (Black Friday Sales), but they ended the day right by coming out and slinging some balls with us. In fact, we played till we just couldn't see anymore. Lots of fun. Saturday brought out some 'old familiar faces' which included 2 groups that we see every Thanksgiving weekend. Sunday was our slower day, but had lots pre-register for the Santa vs Grinch Theme Day. In fact over half the spots are gone. Remember that this game is limited to 60 players. Once those spots are gone you'll have to wait another year to take part in this awesome theme day. Sign up soon!
