MTU Houghton - Spring Game
« on: March 30, 2016, 07:21:49 PM »
LOCATION: MTU Houghton MI or north of there

COST: $20 for non MTU players

WHEN: April 16th 9AM EST

MAP: Coming soon


CONTACT INFO: https://www.facebook.com/events/1540579612905075/

This is an unofficial event IE the details haven't been firmed up yet. Also this isn't linked to the official event since it hasn't been posted yet.

So this is more of an hey this is coming up and if your interested tell me here and Ryan can keep track here as well as his numbers once it's posted.

Details, it will either be held at the normal location for MTU ops which is a mix of woodland and urban or it will be held at the coolest location we've ever seen in the UP. That is an abandoned radio station up north of Houghton. It's up in the air at this point which location it will be.

So far though rules will be pretty much standard, though Bio BB's are required so if your planning on being there please bring Bio BB's in the weight you need for the game. Depending on how things go I might have extra by then but I'm not making garuntee's if I do it's only going to be .25g so plan ahead to cover yourself.

I'll edit this according to the information as it becomes available. At this point despite it saying I'm going since I'm creating the event I'm in the maybe category, have to firm up my own plans etc and see how things come together.

EDIT: Here is the full brief from the link and if you want more information on signing up go to the link itself for the event via Facebook.

Airsoft Association at Michigan Tech
2016 Spring Op Rules

General Guidelines:
Players attending the Spring Op hosted by the Airsoft Association at Michigan Tech are expect to read and familiarize themselves with both the specific rules for this event (this document) as well as the “AAMTU General Rules” document. The Airsoft Association at Michigan Tech reserves the right to suspend, remove, ban, or otherwise penalize players found in breach of rules or at the discretion of event organizers in the event of unforeseen conduct. Any dispute will have final arbitration by the event organizers. If anyone has any questions they may contact the organizers at Airsoft@mtu.edu, or any of the referees / event organizers.

An information session will be held during our regular meeting time (7:00-8:00pm) on Wednesday, April 13th in Fisher 133.

There will be a cost of $20 per non-MTU students. This cost will include a lunch, snacks, and water as well as subsidize club costs associated with the Op. Donations of any amount are greatly appreciated but in no way expected.

The location may be subject to change due to a number of factors.

Equipment Guidelines:
Personal Protective Equipment: Players will be required to wear “insert glasses type here”. Any player’s without the required protective equipment will not be allowed on the field of play.
Face masks, gloves, dead rag and boots with solid ankle support are not required but highly recommended for all players. Closed toed shoes will be required. Safety equipment like flashlights, whistles, comms, etc. are not required but highly recommended.

Replica Restrictions: All airsoft replicas must meet the guidelines set in the Airsoft Association at Michigan Tech general rules document. All players must submit to a chronograph test before they are allowed to use the replica in question. Those planning on using any type of system using a regulator must submit use tournament locks or some other method of preventing tampering with the regulator.

BB Grenade / Sound Generating Device / etc.: Pyrotechnics, fireworks, smoke generating devices will not be allowed in any regard at the game location. Sound generating “grenade” devices (Thunder B’s, blank firing grenades, etc.) are also not permitted. Devices that fire dye, powder, or any other substance that could foreseeably damage player equipment will be prohibited.
If you have questions on a device you intend to use, please contact the event organizers.

Ammunition: Players must use biodegradable bb’s. A limited number of bb’s will be for sale at the event, should players forget.

Player Equipment: For the purpose of calling hits any equipment worn by a player (e.g. backpacks, pouches, plate carriers, etc.) will be considered part of that player. Airsoft replica hits do not count. If your equipment fails you may call yourself out to visit a safe area and troubleshoot if a player calls themselves out in this manner they must fall the regular spawning procedure of the current game

Engagement Guidelines:
Minimum Engagement Distances:  Minimum engagement distances (MEDs) will follow the guidelines set for by the “AAMTU General Rules” document.

Rate of Fire Restrictions: All replicas must fire in semi-automatic with the exception of support weapons. The designation of support weapon is for weapon platforms specifically designed for support roles (e.g. M60, M249, etc.). Standard pattern rifles with a high capacity or drum magazine will not be considered a support weapon. If there is any question on whether or not a replica qualifies as a support weapon please contact the event organizers.

Close Quarters Eliminations: Close quarters eliminations will follow the guidelines set by the “AAMTU General Rules” document.

Conduct Guidelines:
General Conduct: Airsoft is a game based almost entirely on sportsmanship. It is every player’s responsibility to act in a way that promotes a safe and enjoyable gameplay for all players.

Abuse of Rules: Knowling abusing or taking advantage of a rule or loophole may be subject to punitive actions. In general: if you find yourself thinking that something is “technically” legal you probably shouldn’t do it.

Yelling/Shouting: Yelling and/or shouting at players is considered to be bad sportsmanship. If it happens in excess referees or event organizers may take punitive actions. If a player breaking the rules is in question please go to an event organizer or referee and refrain from escalating the situation yourself.

Event Grounds: The grounds that event is taking place on is not the property of the Airsoft Association or Michigan Technological University. It is expected that every player treat it with respect. Any intentional damage or accidental damage to an extreme extent may be subject for removal and reimbursement payment to the landowner(s). Players are also expected to dispose of any trash that they create and not dirty the ground. Trash bags will be supplied.

Personal Property: Handling another player’s personal property without their express consent is grounds for punitive action. When in doubt ask the owner.

Animal Life: Animal life, wild and domestic, is not to be disturbed or harmed in any way.

Climbing: Climbing structures around the playing field is expressly prohibited. Structures such as ladders, stairs, etc. may be fair game at the event organizers’ discretion.

In order to make sure all events take place during the day, we will be following this itinerary as close as possible. Events will proceed regardless of the lateness of players, however, unforeseen events may require the alteration of the schedule.
