Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 42 2020

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Hi, Arnies,

Welcome to this week’s update from Gunman Airsoft.

We’ve had a hugely exciting week with confirmation that we will be taking over running open days and events at the awesome Battle Lakes site near Tunbridge Wells in Kent! The site requires minimal preparation before we start, so we’ve already published three open weekends, with tickets going live at midday on Friday.

This is an amazing site with all sorts of natural and man-made features with great facilities in the safe-zone as well. We will be running a skirmish open weekend on the first Saturday of every month, and a FilmSim open weekend every third Saturday. The first skirmish is lined up for the 7th & 8th of November, with numbers limited to 50 players, so get in quick so you don’t miss out.

Work is continuing at our Tuddenham site, with the guys putting in huge efforts to get the new features up and running that you’ve been patiently waiting for! This weekend is a FilmSim Battlefield special at Tuddenham – featuring our take on some of our favourite video game multiplayer modes, but in a live action style. The “shazam!” defib pads will of course be putting in an appearance for instant revives (or kills) as well as plenty of things that go bang!

Don’t forget that there are still spaces available for the revival of our (im)famous Halloween night operation at Tuddenham as well – secure your place with a £5 deposit and come and help contain the incident at the secret research facility. Torch mandatory, rifles optional, spare underwear strongly recommended…

Next weekend sees the ever popular skirmish open weekends at Camp Bravo and Tuddenham, and after that we’re into November already!

Futuretech Airsoft will be at every FilmSim open weekend at Eversley Alpha on both days.

We can help with many tech issues such as hot guns, new buckings etc, and happy to take guns with bigger issues or for any customising/upgrade work, all at reasonable prices. So dig out those guns you haven’t got around to fixing and bring them along. Guns taken will normally be fixed and returned at the next months game or collect from Farnborough.

Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 41 2020

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Hi, Arnies,

Welcome to this week’s update from Gunman Airsoft.

We’ve had a busy couple of weeks with some awesome games at our Tuddenham and Camp Bravo sites as well as the 24hr Descent MilSim at Alpha. Massive thanks to everyone who made it and were able to adapt to the last minute changes.

We also had another great night game at Tuddenham – don’t forget that we are squeezing in an extra night game this month with the return of our freaky Halloween night game spectacular! The chainsaw gimp has been coaxed out of his retirement chest and is straining at the leash to get at you! Tickets are now available on the website, but places are limited and will sell out fast, so get your deposits in.

This weekend we are back at Tuddenham for another FilmSim open event – Sunday is sold out, but we still have three tickets left for Saturday at this point.

Next weekend we return to Eversley Bravo with another FilmSim open event – this one is “Operation Spider” details to follow on the Facebook event page. There are still spaces available for both days, so get booking if you’re interested.

We also have a skirmish open event on at Tuddenham on the same dates (17th & 18th) with plenty of tickets available for both days at the moment.

We have also decided to squeeze in an extra FilmSim open weekend at Tuddenham this month, this special weekend will be a Battlefield theme and will be hosted by Doug to give Robbie a well-earned break!

We have now introduced a new consent/insurance waiver form, we will now need every player to bring a completed form with them to every game – the same for can be used for adults and under 18s and will be all that is required in the way of paperwork (apart from your ticket) when arriving on site. Forms can be downloaded from our website and filled out in advance – we hope that this will help to speed up the signing in process as well as reducing clustering and unnecessary physical contact in the safe zone.

We will have blank forms to fill in on site, but it would really help speed up your experience if you can pre-fill one in advance.

We will also have QR codes on display on our sites now for users of the NHS test & trace app.

For the latest updates on our COVID measures, be sure to check the frontpage of our website, where we will link any new announcements.

Futuretech Airsoft will be at every FilmSim open weekend at Eversley Alpha on both days.

We can help with many tech issues such as hot guns, new buckings etc, and happy to take guns with bigger issues or for any customising/upgrade work, all at reasonable prices. So dig out those guns you haven’t got around to fixing and bring them along. Guns taken will normally be fixed and returned at the next months game or collect from Farnborough.

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Hi, Arnies,

Welcome to this week’s update from Gunman Airsoft.

Huge thanks to everyone who supported our Vietnam event at the weekend as well as the FilmSim open days at Tuddenham. Tuddenham pictures should be posted to the Facebook page and Instagram feed.

Pictures from the GI weekender, Okto Eight and the Vietnam event are up at https://gallery.oliverfacey.co.uk/airsoft please support our photographers by buying a hi-res copy of any images you like instead of screenshotting, or better yet, buy a print!

This weekend we have another awesome FilmSim open weekend at our Eversley Alpha site – this one is a Hunger Battles theme – details up on the Facebook event page this evening! We also have a skirmish weekend at Tuddenham – Saturday is sold out, but we have spaces on Sunday if you want to get involved.

We have now published our new site-specific mobile numbers. These will usually be switched on from Friday to Sunday on a game weekend and manned by the site managers. Please continue to book places on the website and direct all admin and website queries to the main number of 07711 774461 or via email.

Tuddenham: 07546 439851 (Robbie)
Eversley Alpha: 07546 449695 (Johnny & Kitty)
Eversley Bravo: 07546 426310 (Boston)

We have had an issue with our email server being blocked by Microsoft recently (Outlook, Hotmail, Live etc). Apologies to anyone affected – if you were having problems gaining access to new accounts on the website, you should now be able to use the “forgotten password” link on the login page to reset your account now. Bear in mind that some of our emails are ending up in spam/junk folders at the moment until we can fully resolve the issues – adding us to your “safe senders” list or marking the messages as “not junk” will help no end.

We will be running a Halloween night game this year again at Tuddenham – details to follow next week!

Futuretech Airsoft will be at every FilmSim open weekend at Eversley Alpha on both days.

Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 37 2020

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Hi, Arnies,

Welcome to this week’s update from Gunman Airsoft.

We’ve had several messages in the last few days asking whether the latest COVID measures will have an impact on our events going forward. We’ve had a good read of them and are happy to say that they should not have any effect on our current arrangements.

We currently operate events under the rules and guidelines for organised team sports, which are not covered by the new restrictions, so our existing measures will be adequate.

Please note though, that it is now all the more important for everyone attending our events to do their part to socially distance while in the safe zone, car park or camping areas. Individual groups of up to six persons may socialise closely (please wear face coverings if closer than 2 metres to persons outside of your household), there MUST be a distance of at least two metres between groups.

Groups of persons socialising in the evenings will be closely monitored and no exceptions will be made to the six-person group rules. Once the manager in charge retires for the night, a mandatory curfew will be put in place, requiring everyone to go home or to their individual tents. It will only take one larger group to jeopardise our continuing ability to run events with an evening social atmosphere.

Regardless of whether you think it’s silly or that it doesn’t matter, this is the way things will have to be for a while, if you are not able to fully comply with these restrictions, please leave site immediately after the game finishes, or don’t come in the first place. We are not willing to risk everything that we have worked for over one group’s silliness.

That being said, we have a couple of awesome events lined up for this weekend – Tuddenham is running open days using the FilmSim ruleset, and we have a Vietnam FilmSim event on at Camp Bravo.

Next weekend we are also running FilmSim open days at Eversley Alpha – tickets are running out fast for this one, so make sure you book a space soon if you want to come. We also have a skirmish open weekend at Tuddenham.

The next Okto Eight MilSim event will be up on the website and available for public booking from the 14th – tickets are very limited, so you will need to get in fast to secure a space.

For those of you who have been experiencing registration issues with the website, these should now have been fixed for you. Anyone with a Microsoft email (outlook, Hotmail, live etc) was not receiving the automated emails generated as part of the registration or password reset process.

We have now put some changes in place to penetrate a bit further through Microsoft’s spam defences and are happy to report that our website emails are now at least making it as far as your spam/junk folders! If you have been unable to login, you should now be able to request a password reset email from the login page on the site. Adding noreply@gunmanairsoft.co.uk to your list of permitted emails may help as well.

If you are experiencing further issues, please email us (enquiries or doug) so that we can help you out.

Just a reminder that although we operate several sites across the country, we have minimal staff dealing with enquiries during the week. As a result, you will get the fastest response from us if you call the main admin phone number 07711 774461 during normal business hours, or email us. We generally do not monitor Facebook messages when we are off the clock or out of the office, so please don’t use this method if you need a fast response. We also work every weekend running events, so usually are not in the office on Mondays and Tuesdays although we will try and answer any phone enquiries if we can.

We have just acquired individual mobiles for each of our three regular sites. The numbers will be published on our website and Facebook pages once they have been distributed to the managers. These will be for phone enquiries on game days only (for example you’re running late, can’t find the site etc). Please do not expect a fast response from these numbers during the week or on weekends when the site is closed. Text messages may go unread for several days in between games as the site managers generally only work on game weekends.

For admin, tickets, bookings, website and other enquiries, please use our main admin number or email us as the site managers will be unable to answer these kind of queries for you.

We are trying our hardest to be more available to answer your queries, but we are a very small team so please don’t expect corporate response times or 24/7 availability from us.

Stay safe, and we look forwards to seeing you all soon.

Futuretech Airsoft will be at every FilmSim open weekend at Eversley Alpha on both days.

Zed Adventures Airsoft–Z-MART CQB at The Kennet Centre, Newbury

Zed Adventures Airsoft, the team behind The Mall in Reading,are launching a new site, Z-MART CQB at the Kennet Centre in Newbury, Berkshire:

ad-768x432

Spread across two floors & totalling an estimated area is 3764 meters squared for the entire unit over two floors including safe zone, indoor toilets, open plan game zone, winding corridoors, dark stairwells, vaults & rat runs – that’s equivalent to .9 of an acre! (credit to Asomodai on Airsoft-forums.uk for taking the time to do the maths) we’re hoping that our new site will cater for those craving the CQB playing scenarios that are very much lacking within the Berkshire area since we lost our beautiful mall.

We aim to be as competitive with our prices as possible & we’ll be aiming to please not only the casual airsofter but the hardcore CQB fanatics, those after a different kind of airsoft day, private events, corporate events, old players, new players, rental players, speedsofters & hopefully those who want t take airsoft for what it is & should be – a fantastic day or evening out filled with banter & laughs!

Find out more here.

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Hi, Arnies,

Welcome to this week’s update from Gunman Airsoft.

Last weekend was an awesome success, with a brilliant GI weekender event as well as both Bravo and Tuddenham running open weekends. Huge thanks to everyone who came and supported us, particularly at the GI weekend where we had lots of extra restrictions in place on camping and socialising. We’re looking forward to running another one in May 2021 so keep your eyes peeled for the announcement!

This weekend we are running our usual skirmish open weekend at Camp Bravo, and the sniper ban has now been lifted for this site. The sniper ban at Eversley Alpha will still be in place later this month, however.

Next weekend we have an epic FilmSim open weekend lined up at Tuddenham – we have made some tweaks to the rules regarding bandaging to ensure COVID-19 safety while still enjoying the extra role-play element central to our FilmSim experience!

We are also running a Vietnam Event at the Camp Bravo site – there are still some Saturday only spaces left on the VC side if you are interested, but everything else is sold out.

Futuretech Airsoft will be at every FilmSim open weekend at Eversley Alpha on both days.

We can help with many tech issues such as hot guns, new buckings etc, and happy to take guns with bigger issues or for any customising/upgrade work, all at reasonable prices. So dig out those guns you haven’t got around to fixing and bring them along. Guns taken will normally be fixed and returned at the next months game or collect from Farnborough.

Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 33 2020

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Hi, Arnies,

Welcome to this week’s update from Gunman Airsoft.

With the GI weekender only a couple of weeks away, we have been hard at work making last minute preparations, including the measures which we will be putting in place to ensure COVID-19 compliance.

We will be requiring all players to wear lower face protection – preferably with some kind of fabric incorporated. Please also have a face-covering handy for use in the safe zone for the briefing etc. People camping over will need an individual tent for each household, although the pitch may be shared by up to six persons.

To permit co-operation with the NHS track and trace scheme, we will require each person attending to supply us a contact phone number. This will be kept on a paper record for 21 days after the event and then securely destroyed. It will not be used for any other purpose.

While we will have a shop on site, there will be no browsable area and we will mainly be selling consumables such as ammo, gas etc. Please try to be as prepared as possible. We will also have very limited charging facilities for batteries, so please plan for this and don’t rely on us being able to charge your batteries.

When you arrive on site, you will be greeted by a marshal who will issue each person with a paper copy of the COVID-19 requirements so you can refer to it. It is vital that everyone co-operates with this, as if people disregard the rules the event will have to be shut down.

The usual social on Saturday evening will be restricted to small groups around their own tent pitches – we will not be supplying any food or drink, so make your own arrangements. We ask that everyone be extra sensible especially in regard to their alcohol intake to avoid getting too relaxed and failing to observe social distancing.

One warning will be issued to any group breaching the social distance rules, a further breach will result in the whole group being ejected from site – take responsibility for yourself and your friends!

Running a larger event at this time has taken a lot of planning and preparation as well as the co-operation of the venue owner. We are very fortunate to be able to run this year, but it requires everybody to comply with the rules to ensure safety. Please be prepared for any other changes which may have to be implemented at short notice.

We will be publishing a complete list of the measures and requirements in place for this event as soon as we have everything finalised.

September is nearly upon us and, as promised, we are returning to our previous pricing at our open days. Walk-on tickets will be back to £25, rental packages will be back to £40. A ticket is still required for entry to ensure that we keep player numbers at a level which we can manage safely – please do not just turn up on the day. We know that some of you are unable to commit until the last minute, so we have kept the booking open until the night before.

We are now permitting camping on our sites in limited numbers, small groups of up to six may pitch together, but individuals may not share a tent unless they are from the same household or “support bubble” as recommended by the government.

We have also moved our email system to our own server, so make sure you check your spam box if you’re expecting an email from one of our gunmanairsoft.co.uk addresses just in case.

Futuretech Airsoft will be at every FilmSim open weekend at Eversley Alpha on both days.

We can help with many tech issues such as hot guns, new buckings etc, and happy to take guns with bigger issues or for any customising/upgrade work, all at reasonable prices. So dig out those guns you haven’t got around to fixing and bring them along. Guns taken will normally be fixed and returned at the next months game or collect from Farnborough.

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Hi, Arnies,

Welcome to this week’s update from Gunman Airsoft.

We had another exciting weekend at both Camp Bravo and Tuddenham, huge thanks to everyone who attended.

We are confident now that we can continue to meet social distancing requirements in the safe zones with 50 players per day, and as promised, we will be dropping our ticket prices back to the £25 and £50 which they were at before lockdown. This will take effect from September’s events.

We will still be requiring people to book on the website in advance, in order to avoid overfilling on the day, so please continue to use this method.

Apologies for the issues with booking on the website over the last week – Doug found a great way to improve the website loading speed, but unfortunately, it broke the login system. The site does now require you to login to buy tickets, and the issue has been fixed, although the speed improvements have also been lost. We will be addressing this over the next few weeks with some changes on the server end.

As always, if you experience any issues with the booking system, please email doug@gunmanairsoft.co.uk.

We have also made some changes to the Facebook pages when it comes to messaging. The only Facebook page whose messages will be monitored and responded to will be the main Gunman Airsoft page at https://www.facebook.com/GunmanAirsoft the other pages will auto-respond. This has been done to avoid missed messages and should hopefully speed up our response. Please do not send PMs to the staff’s accounts on Facebook, these often go un-noticed for long periods of time. We are not avid Facebookers outside of our work use (Doug doesn’t even have Facebook on his personal devices) so please bear with us if you don’t get an immediate reply.

Most of the questions which we get asked are answered on our website, so have a look there if you don’t get a speedy reply. If an event is open for booking, it will be on the website, but may not be advertised on Facebook. Please feel free to phone us on our published numbers, but again, we have families and are away working every weekend, so we usually have Mondays and Tuesdays as down time and may not respond during these times.

Lastly, just a reminder that this is your last chance to get discounted tickets for the GI weekender at the end of August – use the voucher code “GI20EARLY” at checkout to get a £10 discount before Friday night! The blue Hammers team is already fully booked, so don’t leave it until the last minute if you want to be on the same team as your mates.

Thank you all once again for your continued support.

Futuretech Airsoft will be at every FilmSim open weekend at Eversley Alpha on both days.

Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 30 2020

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Hi, Arnies,

Welcome to this week’s update from Gunman Airsoft.

We’re starting to get back into the swing of things now with another couple of awesome weekends at both Tuddenham and Eversley Alpha site.

This weekend we are back at Tuddenham again as well as Camp Bravo for two days of skirmish fun. Tuddenham still has some spaces available on the Sunday, so if you’ve missed out over the last couple of weeks, get booked.

General clearance work is well underway at our Tuddenham site, with several of the Marshals putting in some huge efforts to catch up with the weeds and brambles. We also have new structures going up. We now have Robbie as a dedicated site manager for Tuddenham, he has some big plans going forward, the first of which being to re-introduce mid-week night games! The first of these will be in August, the event is up on the website for booking now.

Keep your eyes on the Tuddenham Facebook page for more exciting news as well as competitions with some great prizes.

Our new 2020 patches are now being manufactured, as soon as we have them available we’ll let you know.

Our Camp Bravo site at Eversley is now running evening games on every Wednesday and Friday night – spaces are limited and should be booked by emailing matt.b@gunmanairsoft.co.uk.

On a technical note, we have been experiencing some issues recently with the website being slow. Doug is looking into it in an effort to discover whether it’s a hosting problem, or something related to the new booking software. He will be performing some database and server maintenance tonight during which time the site will be unavailable. If it’s not back up and running by the morning he’s probably passed out on his keyboard at 4am again…

We are also experiencing an issue where some of you have not been emailed a ticket. Doug is looking into this issue as well, and hopefully will have a fix sorted soon. The bug has also meant that your name may not have been automatically added to the attendee list used on the gate. Doug is aware of this and has manually added everybody who is affected onto the lists for this weekend. Any issues, get in touch with Doug on 07711 774461 or doug@gunmanairsoft.co.uk he is mostly available Wed to Sun but very selfishly has Mondays and Tuesdays to himself, so bear with him on those days (also he’s rubbish at checking Facebook messages!)

Futuretech Airsoft will be at every FilmSim open weekend at Eversley Alpha on both days.

We can help with many tech issues such as hot guns, new buckings etc, and happy to take guns with bigger issues or for any customising/upgrade work, all at reasonable prices.

Hi, Arnies,

Welcome to this week’s update from Gunman Airsoft.

We had yet another awesome weekend at both the Tuddenham and Camp Bravo sites last week. Thank you all once again.

This weekend we are running at Tuddenham and the Eversley Alpha site on Saturday and Sunday. Places are still limited, but have been increased to 40 per day. There are still a couple of tickets left at the time of writing this, pop to our website to book a place.

Please note that the sniper ban is currently in place at our Eversley sites as the undergrowth is always keen at this time of year and it’s had a few months of nobody running around in it as well, so expect full on Vietnam style jungle! There is now no catering available at the Alpha site this weekend, so please bring some food.

We have got a new 2020 Gunman patch on the way, as soon as they arrive, we will let you know, and you can grab yours at one of our sites.

Thanks again for your continued support and enthusiasm, we’re so glad to be back to doing what we love; providing high quality days of airsoft for you guys.

More tickets released for Gunman Airsoft open days

Gunman Airsoft have been able to make further tickets available for their games from next weekend:

Hi, Arnies,

Welcome to a short update from Gunman Airsoft.

After a couple of weekends’ successfully accommodating 30 customers on our sites we are now confident that we can increase spaces to 40 players per day from next weekend.

This means that there are now additional tickets available which you can book via the website.

Once again, thanks to everyone for your ongoing support, as well as your willingness to comply with the new measures in the safe-zone. We will require your continued cooperation going forward to ensure that we can provide a safe environment with the increased numbers.

Please note that catering is available on both Eversley sites, no food or drink is currently available at Tuddenham.

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Hi, Arnies,

Welcome to this week’s update from Gunman Airsoft.

We had a very successful weekend at both Tuddenham and Camp Bravo – huge thanks to everyone who joined in and stuck to the new safe-zone rules.

This weekend we are back at both sites again, with a fully-booked weekend. We will be re-assessing after this weekend whether we feel we can safely raise the player numbers to 40 for August if we can. This does rely on everybody continuing to be sensible in the safe-zone and stay vigilant with your distancing.

We are bringing extra stock to site with us, but most of it will not be displayed to avoid the temptation to fondle it, so if there’s something that you need, please ask in case we have it under the counter. We are starting to place stock orders again, so if there is anything you need, drop us an email over the weekend so we can try and get it in for you.

Don’t forget that our GI weekender event is still on for the end of August bank holiday weekend at the usual site in Hertfordshire. Tickets are back on sale on the website, and if you use the voucher code “GI20EARLY” there is a £10 discount per ticket if booked before the end of July! Camping will be available for this event, thanks to the huge field which we have in the safe zone.

At the moment, we would prefer if people did not camp at our open weekends as we need all the space we can get in the safe-zone, however we are able to accommodate small groups if you are travelling a large distance to attend, providing that the current Government guidelines are adhered to.

Futuretech Airsoft will be at every FilmSim open weekend at Eversley Alpha on both days.

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Hi, Arnies,

Welcome to this week’s update from Gunman Airsoft.

We are all geared up for our first weekend of airsoft in forever and are really excited to see you all!

Both Tuddenham and Camp Bravo are completely sold out this weekend, so please don’t come down unless you have a ticket as we will have to turn you away.

Tuddenham is running Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Camp Bravo is Saturday and Sunday only.

Both sites will have as much retail as we can bring with us and display behind the counter – we will not have everything out for display to prevent people handling stock and putting it back, so please ask if you don’t see what you need. We will certainly have BBs, gas and pyro as well as eye/face protection and gloves.

The rest of the weekends in July are booking up fast, so make sure you book a ticket early to avoid disappointment, particularly if you want to play with your mates.

We will consider opening up extra space for our August open days if we feel we can do so safely – it’s mainly about managing social distancing in the safe-zone, we will have a better idea of how well our current measures work over the next couple of weeks and will only increase capacity if we are sure it is safe and sensible to do so.

We are also looking to place a small order for some new stock next week – we are accepting special orders with advance payment for collection on site next weekend, so if there’s something you fancy drop us an email before Monday evening and we’ll see if we can add it to the order if possible.

Stay safe, see you all soon.

Gunman Airsoft re-opening announcement

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Hi, Arnies,

Welcome to this week’s update from Gunman Airsoft.

Hi All,

I hope you are all well and prevailing during this time.

We have been keeping an eye very closely on the guidance set out for outdoor activities and examining how this will affect our business for some time. It has been a while since we last updated you and we are pleased today to be able to offer a further update on how and when we will be re-opening our sites. It has been really good to hear from you all over the lockdown and we would like to reiterate our immense gratitude for your continued support and patience during this difficult time.

We wanted to write to you to let you all know what we have been planning and actively doing in order to get our sites open and to be able to keep our teams and customers safe. We have been trialling how this will happen, and how we can ensure that social distancing and hygiene will be maintained whilst preserving the importance of a great day out participating in our much-loved activity.

We are pleased to announce that following our successful trialling, we feel that we can re-open from July at our sites. We will need to carefully manage player numbers, therefore initially days will be limited to 30 players. All tickets must be booked and paid for in advance using our website, we believe this to be the safest method for both customers and staff, as well as ensuring that we don’t exceed a safe capacity on the day. Unfortunately, this means that we will not be able to accept non-booked players on site until the situation changes.

While we are operating at reduced levels, the tickets will cost £30 for the day until we can increase player numbers. We will be making a small number of rental spaces available at a cost of £55 per day. Due to the limited number of spaces, we will not be able to offer either refunds or transfers if you are unable to attend after buying a ticket. Your statutory rights are unaffected.

Players are welcome to buy tickets for multiple days, but we will not be offering weekend discounts at this time. Customers will not be permitted to stay on site overnight.

We regret that we are still temporarily unable to offer refunds to persons who have already paid for tickets or deposits, due to the financial position we have found ourselves in during this crisis. We cannot express how grateful we are to those of you who have been so amenable in this matter, without which we may not have been able to re-open at all.

In the first instance, we will be offering to transfer any tickets from cancelled open days to an equivalent ticket at a future open day of your choice. For those who have paid a deposit for a FilmSim/MilSim weekend event which was postponed, we will first offer a transfer to the new date or a credit if this is not suitable. If a refund is still unavoidable, we just ask that you bear with us a little bit longer before we are able to honour them.

We intend for our booking system to be live from the evening of Friday the 12th June for Skirmish Open Days, however any Filmsim open days or events/Milsim games will not be recommencing before August at the earliest until further relaxing of restrictions allows for them. We will also be unable to accommodate non-booked walk on players at open days for the time being.

As mentioned before, to help reduce gatherings there will be no retail apart from BBs, gas and pyro which must all be paid for via contactless card payment. We will have a battery charging station set up, however we ask that you charge before you arrive.  There are many other considerations, some of which are outlined below:

·         No food and drink will be available, please bring your own.

·         Registration will be done outside and please bring your own pen.

·         Markings will be made to adhere to the required  social distancing.

·         Please wear full-face protection and gloves as much as possible.

·         Toilet facilities will be available and there is a responsibility on all of us to keep these areas as clean as possible. Hand washing facilities will be stationed throughout the site.

We will only be running skirmish style games, hit and return to a regen flag to get back to action. There will be no props to reduce contamination. We plan to keep everyone in the field as much as possible and have lots of scenarios planned to enjoy and to challenge. The extra safety brief will be added to the website shortly, please inform yourselves of how we keep each other and ourselves safe prior to attending.

We hope that with all of our efforts and the shared responsibility that we all now have, all of these plans that we have put in place will keep us safe and enable us to resume our love and participation in our activity. We will be monitoring this at all times and these plans will of course be subject to change if we feel it may not be working. We value our community so much and with your continued trust and support we will have a successful reopening.

We are really looking forward to welcoming you all back soon, both old faces and new.

Futuretech Airsoft will be at every FilmSim open weekend at Eversley Alpha on both days.

We can help with many tech issues such as hot guns, new buckings etc, and happy to take guns with bigger issues or for any customising/upgrade work, all at reasonable prices. So dig out those guns you haven’t got around to fixing and bring them along. Guns taken will normally be fixed and returned at the next months game or collect from Farnborough.

Land Warrior Airsoft statement on Airsoft in Scotland

Land Warrior Airsoft have some news for Airsofters in Scotland following talks with the Scottish Government:

Just to confirm that Land Warrior has spent a couple of weeks in talks with the Scottish Government, we can confirm that Airsoft in Scotland is now allowed to go ahead following the current guidelines.

Obviously this presents some issues in terms of gaming types and numbers but it is definitely a positive step forward for the sports and peoples physical and mental wellbeing as well as great news for the industry as a whole. Roughly speaking we are asked to:

  • Keep game numbers low to manage the car parking areas
  • Cars are not shared 
  • Players must be from the local area only
  • Social distancing must be maintained at all time

Of course the situation will be a challenge for every game site and business but I think we can all agree this is the best news in months!

Kind regards

Scott Allan
