this is some of the stuff that i have on my field and im still working on it. i used just stuff that i found in our junkyard.
you will need:
a crap load of wood. doors, plywood, old signs and 2x4's stuff like that.
a crap load of nails
a hand saw
a hammer
and finally time







this last picture is only a 3rd of what i have

no no no

my field is the ghetto field ive tried everything. all you need to do is if the is built off of a tree take a tall wood stake and hammer it into the ground then nail the flimsy side of the board to the stake its the fastest and poorest way to make bad but kick ass bunkers. here take a look at my field pics i attatchedthumup:

Your fields aren't ghetto. Compared to places i've played at they're pretty nice.

As for transpanting the bunkers, buy some pipe lengths and stick them in the ground to act as the trees that the bunkers were once the supports of the bunkers.

If you want to be safe, use waterproof wood glue (if there is such a thing) instead of nails. It bonds better and doesn't wreck the wood.
Swedez, those are kickass bunkers.
If you want to make a speedball-style field, just look at the shapes of the speedball obstacles and rebuild them. A can (cylinder bunker) is as easy as making a rectangular prism. If you want to set up a centre X...well, that's more of a problem.
