ATTENTION HOSTS
« on: March 12, 2015, 05:32:06 PM »
CREDIT goes to KNIEF for creating the original thread: http://miairsoft.proboards.com/thread/18431/attention-hosts


From this point on, all events posted on MiA that do not conform to MiA engagement limits must post the following disclaimer at the top of the first post in the event thread:

Caution: This Event Fails to Conform to MiA Safety Rules. Participate at Your Own Risk.

Copy and Paste the following UBBC coding to do this:

Caution: This Event Fails to Conform to MiA Safety Rules. Participate at Your Own Risk.


You must also include the phrase "MiA safety regs not in effect" in the title of your thread.

These precautions are the responsibility of the event host. All events not using MiA engagement limits* that do not these warnings posted appropriately will be removed on sight.

Furthermore, all events must enforce MiA Eye protection requirements. If an event does not enforce MiA Eye protection requirements, it cannot be posted on MiA. If an event host is known to allow eye protection that doesn't conform to MiA regulations, he will no longer be allowed to post events on MIA.

MiA Engagement limits and Eye protection requirements posted below.

u]Article 15
[/u]: The following are the minimum distance engagement limits for airsoft replicas. This is the closest a player can engage another player with a replica rated in the following feet per second (fps) categories using full-auto, semi-auto, or single shot capability. See Article 16 for extremely close quarter player elimination.

As of April 24, 2009, these rules include a 10fps "tolerance zone". Players will be allowed onto the field if their weapons shoot up to 10.0 fps over the published limit.

OUTDOOR/OPEN FIELD ENGAGEMENT LIMITS
• 1.0 - 340.9 fps - Arms length engagement limit


• 341.0 - 400.9 fps - 20 foot engagement limit


• 401.0 - 540.9 fps – 50 foot engagement limit, bolt action or permanent* semi-auto replicas only


• 541.0+ fps - Prohibited or allowed with permission of event organizer only

*Permanent semi-auto refers to replicas that do not have full-auto fire capability, no matter how the selector switch or other user input device is manipulated.

INDOOR/CLOSE QUARTER BATTLE (CQB)/ENCLOSED FIELD ENGAGEMENT LIMITS
• 1.0 - 340.9 fps – Arms length engagement limit


• 341.0+ fps – prohibited or allowed with permission of event organizer only

Engagement limits are based on averaged fps readings using .20 gram weight bb’s only. The method for acquiring an airsoft replica’s average fps is to fire multiple (more than 2) shots through a chronograph, record the readings, add the fps readings together and divide by the total number of readings.
Gas operated airsoft replicas should be chronographed using a “warm” ambient temperature gas supply (i.e. magazine), or with heating device functioning if used during the cold season.
No allowance is made for airsoft replicas that have an average reading close to the lower end of the next highest fps category. Example- if the replica has an average reading of 351.5 fps it falls within the 20 foot engagement limit.

Again, these rules include a 10fps "tolerance zone". Players will be allowed onto the field if their weapons shoot up to 10.0 fps over the published limit.

Article 3: Eye protection must be worn at all times, except in designated “safe” staging or preparation areas. Event organizers will inform the participants of such designated areas prior to the start of the event. It is recommended that players wear their eye protection at all times. Safety is the first priority.

• Eye protection must be of the completely sealed type (there must be contact with the eyewear frame and face, fully surrounding the eyes). Lenses must meet the minimum rating of ANSI Z87.1, MIL-V-43511C, or ASTM F 1776-01.*Edited-02/18/04, Frostee Eye protection must not be able to be brushed off, knocked off, or moved easily. It is strongly suggested that all eye protection be secured with a strong elastic strap/band (the type intended for such uses). A full mask that covers the entire face is optional, but the lenses must meet the aforementioned ANSI or ASTM specification and the area around the eyes must be sealed to the frame.
Eye protection in question should be examined by the event organizers who may decide to perform a safety test before determining if the eye protection is suitable. It is highly recommended that any player wearing questionable eyewear be refused entry to the playing field. Safety is the first priority.



* This disclaimer is not needed if your engagement limits are stricter than MiA limits.
