Apr 28th - OP4 Spring Op 2012 Lynchburg, VA

Post  Cleaver on Mon Mar 26, 2012 3:20 am

Team OP4 is hosting a game in Lynchburg. We played with some of these guys at the Charity Game and they were pretty cool dudes.

AO is a bit vague at the moment, listed only as "Junkyard". However, if my professional sleuthing / stalking skills are correct I can reasonably assume that it is located here:
The Junkyard (<----- That's a link btw)

I'm not exactly sure of the extents of the field...but there appear to be buses in the woods, which is kind of bitchin'. This is a game I really want to go to, pending school work. If I do end up going I'll have room in the FunRunner, provided you're willing to compensate gas or provide me with other services.

...like cleaning my car. It's been awhile.

I am likely, though I wish they provided more info lol

EDIT: It's $5 for the day, and you get a meal with it. I think it's plenty fair.

Since our current field situation is 'in transition' and I feel like I'll be dying for some trigger time before Finals, tentatively count me in. I may be able to either drive some people (with contributions) or alternatively pitch in for gas.

Mike and his group are great guys! This years Spring Campaign is a series of pick up games, not an Op style game. I believe the picture link posted is the field, but it's farther back in the wooded area. I don't believe the bus area is used. I plan on taking my team, so I hope to see you there!

We have any idea on what FPS limits are? Seems interesting enough, however I don't know what I'll be shooting by then.

Just a little heads up you will need a wavier to play at the field. So make sure you get one once they are posted up (since there isn't a link that I saw on Facebook yet). Would really suck to go all that way without a wavier and not be able to play.

Post  itsahak on Mon Mar 26, 2012 11:16 pm

I just confirmed with Mike that they will be using the VA.org rule set, posted below. And he will have waivers on site for game day!

1.0 Honor

1.1 Airsoft is primarily a game involving honor and honesty. These characteristics of honor and honest are expected to be shown to all players, by all players, at all times.

1.2 These guidelines were arrived at by a concentrated effort of the members of VA.org.

1.3 These guidelines may be amended in the future by the VA.org members and may be amended by specific scenario exceptions when agreed upon before games.

1.4 VA.org is NOT a governing body, and enlists these guidelines in order to give players, teams, organizations and fields an enjoyable and safe experience at this annual event. All participants in airsoft events participate solely of their own volition and assume all risks.

2.0 Eye wear

2.1 Ballistic rated (minimum ANSI Z87.1 spec) fully enclosed eye wear is highly suggested!! Full seal goggles/masks are highly recommended, paintball goggles/masks are also allowed. Shooting Glass are allowed though not recommended.

2.2 Goggles/masks should not be removed during game play while in a game zone. Removal of eye wear should be constrained to no fire zones outside of the gaming area or in a designated Respawn Zone (see 9.4).

2.3 Mesh goggles will be approved on a case by case basis based on the inspection of the organizer.

2.4 Blind Man Rule: If a player comes across a spectator (or anyone) without eye protection, or that has wandered onto the playing field, they shall shout "BLIND MAN" to stop the game for the safety of the persons without goggles and have them move off the field. Upon hearing the call of “Blind Man”, all players shall repeat it loudly until game play has stopped.

3.0 Airsoft Replicas

3.1 VA.org suggests following the Real Steel Firearms Safety Rules.
3.1.1 Treat all replica's as if they are loaded.
3.1.2 Keep your finger off of the trigger until you are ready to fire.
3.1.3 Never point your muzzle in the direction of anything you're not willing to destroy
3.1.4 Automatic Electric Guns (AEG), Automatic Electric Pistols (AEP), Gas Guns, Gas Blow Back (GBB) Guns, Gas Non Blow Back and spring operated guns are suggested for airsoft play and should have these rules applied to them.

3.2 Rifles, Carbines, SMGs, SAWs, LMGs, Side Arms

3.2.1 Maximum acceptable velocities
In the interest if simplicity the maximum acceptable velocity of a replica will be tested with.20g BBs.

Sniper Replicas 451 - 500 fps w/.20 bbs
Minimum Engagement Distance 100'

Outdoor replica's 0 - 450 fps w/ .20 bbs
Minimum Engagement Distance 10'

Indoor and CQB replica's of 0 – 350 fps w/ .20bbs full auto, 350 - 400 fps strict semi auto only. Minimum Engagement Distance - N/A

3.3 Sniper Rifles Replicas

3.3.1 Any replica with a fps rating of 450~550 fps using .20 gram BBs should be designated as a Sniper Rifle. Sniper rifles should be single shot or semi auto only due the the FPS.

3.3.2 Minimum engagement distance for Sniper Rifles should be no less than 100 feet.

3.4 Specialty weapons such as grenade launchers, airsoft style rocket launchers, airsoft claymores, and airsoft mines could be allowed if the user shows proficiency with such a tool. A demonstrable understanding of MED (see 4.0) with specialty weapons should also be shown.

4.0 Minimum Engagement Distance – Safety No Fire Zone

4.1 Players should attempt to maintain a MED of about 10' with all replicas, unless as noted above

4.2 Weapons must have the magazines out and be cleared in a Safety Zone. A Safety Zone is one where players may take their goggles off.

4.3 For weapons that cannot be so easily cleared (SAWS, M203s, etc) barrel plugs or covers are acceptable.

4.4 Pistols do not have to be cleared as long as they remain holstered in such a way that the muzzle faces a safe direction.

5.0 Disengage

5.1 Disengage is used when two players find themselves unacceptably inside the MED. They may offer each other the opportunity to disengage, by calling out the same.

6.0 Hits

6.1 Hits to any part of the body or gear are considered “good shots”. Yell out “hit!”, follow any Medic Rules that may be in effect. If applicable, remove yourself from the area of play and follow the respawn procedure .

6.2 Shooting a downed man should not be allowed under any circumstance, except where as allowed by certain Medic System rules.

6.3 Failing to call hits will not be tolerated. The following actions will be taken if the problem arises:
1st Offense- A warning and reminder of the honor system in Airsoft.
2nd Offense- Warning of ejection.
3rd Offense- Ejection from the field.
Blatant Offense- If a player is totally lit up by BBs and does nothing (within the games rules i.e zombie or medic) and is witnessed by many, game organizer discretion to warn or eject.

6.4 Calling other people's hits will not be tolerated. Shouting matches are not sportsman like and ruin the fun for everyone. If you suspect someone is not calling their hits, approach the organizer or a game official.

7.0 Knife Kills

7.1 Knife kills are not recommended by VA.org as all physical contact should be avoided.

8.0 Surrender Courtesy

8.1 It is suggested to be used when a player has caught someone completely by surprise and they are, for example, facing the other way. In situations where one player has worked in close to an opposing player, and their presence is not known, the player can call “Surrender”, to alert the other player to their presence. This should only be used inside the MED, and only when a player has the drop on another player. It should not be used against multiple opponents at one time. It is a “courtesy” and should be treated as such.

8.2 No player is required to surrender. However by refusing to do so, the player is accepting the responsibility of being shot inside the MED range

9.0 Other Rules

9.1 No Drugs or Alcohol will be allowed on the playing field. No exceptions. Unless you have a prescription, do not bring it to the game.

9.2 Do not push, shove or fight with any one while at any games. All involved parties will be expelled from the playing field and if necessary the proper authorities contacted.

9.3 Real Steel firearms and ammunition should not be brought to the playing field.

9.4 Medic and/or respawn rules are at the discretion of the game organizer.

I will also be able to attend, barring an emergency/school work. But does anyone have a chrono? because it would be a crying shame to get all the way there and then have an unplayable gun.

1 week out, let's get this travel thing settled.

Looks like the list we got is as follows:

Me, Keith, Greg, Duy, Kaleb, Taylor, Kalak?. That's just who I see on Facebook, but there could be more.

I'm stopping in Roanoke for the night after the game. While I would love to have people ride with me on the way up I will be unable to drive anyone coming back unless it's absolutely necessary. I'd like to avoid it.

I (Taylor) am planning to go, are we meeting somewhere beforehand and driving as a group or just driving on our own? I will be able to take some people if needed.

I can be added as a maybe. Now that I've got my gut problems diagnosed (celiac), I get to wait and see how I feel after changed my diet for a while. I won't give a percentage or anything, but that is the only thing really keeping me from going. I'll know more as the week goes on. If my gut is happy, I need to get trigger time again.

Thanks Greg! Taylor please keep us updated. If you don't end up going we'll still need 1 more driver. And as I said, I CAN do it, it's just not preferred.
