Kamloops rules pretty much same as Kelowna. I didn't make a link because it may not be viewable if you are not a member of the facebook page. Hope to see you there!
1. While there is a game in progress, SUITABLE EYE PROTECTION is to remain on at all times while on the field. Until more specific rules regarding eye protection are agreed upon, it will be at the admin's discretion. There are two safe zones; the parking area, and the middle base. Outside the safe zone (middle base) goggles should be on at all times. If your goggles malfuction (fog, etc.) leave the play area entirely. Do not remove your goggles on the field. If you see someone remove their eye protection while on the field, repeatedly yell "CEASE FIRE."
2. There is to be no firing your weapon into or out of the safe zone while there is no game in progress. Airsoft guns are dangerous. Treat them like real guns. When not in use, point them in a safe direction, keep the gun on "SAFE," and keep your finger off the trigger. As an extra safety precaution, remove the magazine and clear the chamber in a safe direction at the end of each game. If you need to fire your weapon, walk at least TEN METERS outside of the safe zone, and fire AWAY from it.
3. Absolutely no blind firing. If you can't see where your shots are going, you are blind firing.
4. If you are hit, yell, "HIT," and immediately raise your hand. If you have a kill rag, pull it after this process. Then, with your hand still above your head, walk back to your team's base. Failure to do any of these things can and will result in you getting shot by multiple people. Dead men tell no tales.
5. No fighting on the field, verbal or physical. If you have a problem with another player, tell an admin in private and one of us will address the issue. If you KNOW you hit someone and they didn't call it, you may call a "CLEAN KILL" by pulling your kill rag/holding up your hands, and approaching the player in question. All you have to do is walk up to them and say, "clean kill,' and they MUST take the hit. Attempting to argue it will result in removal from the game. Both players "die" in this situation, and must respawn as usual.
6. Lastly, no drugs, alcohol or pets on the field. If you have a pet, please leave it in your vehicle or tie it up in a safe location near the parking area.
These rules are in place for your safety and the safety of others. If you are seen not following any of the rules above, you will be confronted, and repeat offenses will result in exculsion from future games.
Game Specific RESPAWNING After returning to your team's base (not before), begin counting to the specified respawn time. This can vary from 30 seconds, to two minutes. Simply count in your in your head at a normal pace, "one one-thousand, two one-thousand, etc."
GUN HITS If your primary weapon is hit, but you are not, it is broken. You may only use your sidearm. If you don't have a sidearm, you may retreat back to your team's base to "repair" your weapon. This enables you to run back to your base and bypass the respawn timer.
Alternately, you can yell, "GUN HIT," or simply, "HIT" and return to your base and respawn as you would normally.
KNIFE KILLS Body shots ONLY. Do not attempt to "slit their throat" or otherwise aim for the head. The knife only needs to touch the person and must be in your hand. In the event that someone is able to sneak up to you and kill you with their knife, do not call "HIT". Simply return to your base.
MERCY This is encouraged, but not enforced. If you are within 10 feet of someone and have a clear shot, you may call, "MERCY." The player may choose to take the hit without actually being fired at in order to prevent personal injury. As this is not enforced, the player is not obligated to take the hit; in which case, taking the shot is recommended.
MEDICS If it is agreed that there will be medics in a game, medics will be determined before the game begins. If you are hit, lay down on the ground and begin counting to 60 seconds. You may yell, "MEDIC," to attract the attention of your team's medic. He must reach you within 60 seconds, or you will bleed out and die. After which, you may get up and return to your base normally. The medic must tag you and count to five (5).
After being tagged for 5 seconds, you return to the game. If you are shot again, you die and respawn as usual. After respawning, you may be hit, be revived, and be hit again before dying and having to respawn. Medics can revive themselves in the same manner; again, only once before having to respawn, increasing their value on the field.
**Additional: Medics may be given a limited number of bandages, which must be physically tied around a limb in place of tagging for 5 seconds.
FPS Limits All measurements are done with .20g BBs and engagement distances are derived from the 1 Joule impact energy of 330fps at point blank range. A 400fps gun can dent metal and take the bark off a tree at 60 feet, so use your sidearm when possible.
330fps and under Pistols and AEGs No minimum distance
330-400fps AEGs/Gas guns Avoid using within 20 feet
400-450fps Semi-automatic gas/AEGs only Mandatory sidearm Avoid using within 30 feet (10 meters)
450-500fps Bolt action gas/spring sniper rifles only Mandatory sidearm Due to heavy weight BBs commonly being used, avoid using within 60 feet (20 meters)
