Fields of Fire is Business of the Month


MYSTIC — Fields of Fire at 715 Noank Ledyard Road, has been named the November recipient of the Business of the Month award by the Greater Mystic Chamber of Commerce.

The award is nomination-based and determined by several factors, including community involvement and overall success.

Fields of Fire, a full-service paintball and airsoft park, opened in 2011, and has quickly grown into the premier paintball park of the region. Residents and visitors to the area have come to their scenic fields to take advantage of the unique experience. Set on 50 acres ranging from rugged woodlands to wide open spaces, the park is professionally-designed. The staff members are knowledgeable and friendly, and emphasize the importance of a safe and exciting experience for all participants, according to the Chamber.

They have also become an active member of the local community, thanks to owner Tom Vignato, ,said the Chamber.

On Election Day, Nov. 5, it planned to offer free paintball all day as a way to remind residents to go vote and then have some fun. It also offers military discounts for all open play days. Most recently, Fields of Fire partnered with the Boys & Girls Club of Southeastern Connecticut to host a “Gettin’ Muddy for Kids Mud Run.” Fields of Fire hosted the event and all proceeds benefited the Boys & Girls Club.

According to the chamber, an organization that supports the local community and provides an exciting and fun environment is truly deserving of recognition, and thus it proudly honors Tom Vignato and the entire team at Fields of Fire.
