General Field Rules
These rules are subject to changes, amendments and updates from time to time – it is YOUR responsibility as a player to ensure that your knowledge of the rules is current.
All players MUST agree to abide by these rules and laws at all times; failure to do so may result in you being asked to leave the field. We reserve the right to ask you to leave at anytime for not being in compliance with the rules. No refunds will be provided.
EVERYONE IS REQUIRED TO FILL OUT A WAIVER FOR EVERY GAME/EVENT NO EXCEPTIONS. (Download at bottom of page)
Upon arrival, you understand and accept any and all liabilities and risks of loss, injury and damages to yourself and/or your property. We (the property owners, and game planners) accept no personal responsibility or liability for any Injuries, damages, or losses that may occur while you are on the property. Please take note, this is a forest and there may be irritating plant and animal/insect life on the field.
All guns will remain in bags, boxes, or cases until you are in the staging area.
There will be a marked “safe” staging area. There is absolutely no firing (live, dry or otherwise) permitted in this area. When returning to the staging area from the field all players will remove their magazines, point their barrel down in a safe direction and fire it, approximately three to five (3-5) times to clear any BBs from the chamber. The guns will then be switched to safe and remain that way until you return to the play area or test fire at the range.
When handling airsoft guns in the safe area ALL players are expected to point their barrel in a safe direction (pointed up or down) and handle all airsoft guns in a safe manner. Do not sweep your weapon across anyone’s path or have your barrel pointed at someone’s face. All airsoft guns should be treated as if real firearms while in the safe zone. Be nice if someone gently reminds you. Disregard of this rule may result in you being asked to leave the field. Barrel bags are a requirement in the safe area. All pistols not holstered must have the magazine removed in the safe area. AGAIN it is expected that all airsoft guns will be treated as real firearms in the safe area.
FULL SEAL BALLISTIC EYE WEAR ONLY (no “shooter type” glasses unless approved for events ex. m frames, sawflys, etc). No mesh goggles permitted.
Protective eye wear must be worn at ALL TIMES on the field and at the Range.
No pyrotechnics, fireworks, flammables/explosives etc. without prior approval. We reserve the right to ask you to prove that the item you intend to use is safe for the conditions; this may involve using one in a controlled test.
DO NOT leave any garbage around the safe zone, or field. Police your garbage and please use the provided garbage cans.
In game, when hit by a bb you must yell “HIT!” To signify that you’ve been hit, raise your hand and display your red kill rag for other players to see, then leave the field, or do as the rules of the event would dictate. When a player calls a hit, please make an effort not to overshoot the person that’s been hit.
Mercy Rules only apply if the game dictates so. If the shooter calls “mercy” and the target then decides to decline the mercy, the shooter may engage and fire. This means mercy is optional and can be accpeted or not accepted (similar to a parley). Once hit, refrain from talking or passing information to your team as DEAD MEN DON’T TALK.
Gun Hits will count as elimination if the player does not have a side arm. If the player does have a side arm they must switch to the side arm.
NO BLIND FIRING! You MUST look and be able to see where you are shooting!
Do not shoot at any animals, cut down or remove any trees or plant life. If you’re going to “ghillie up”, you can make use of lite vegetation along the path entering the field from the safe zone.
No throwing of training knives. When using one for close combat kills, a touch is enough to eliminate the player. No stabbing or spearing with training knives.
All Players should check the large maps on display to make them selves aware of field boundaries.
No visible lasers are permitted at this field. Class 1 or IR lasers are permitted with proof of documentation.
In the event of an injury or emergency a “No Duff” call will be made. If you hear a “No Duff” inform those around you, repeat calling it out while making safe your weapons. All play will cease immediately until the field marshal restarts the game. Limited first aid will be available on sight, but for larger or more serious injuries please seek professional medical help. Remember, “No Duff” means that you require assistance; if you can exit the field on your own do so without calling a “No Duff”.
Any safety concerns, questions, etc. should be brought to the attention of the field marshal or staff to be resolved. Any disputes between players brought to staff and will be dealt with accordingly. Arguing with staff or field marshals will be tolerated.
Everyone who attends the field is expected to drive respectfully on the access roads to the forest. Anyone caught driving recklessly or with excessive speed will not be welcome back.
