QUESTION CORNER




We'll add to these as they crop up...


Q: What are your FPS limits?
A: All FPS limits are quoted based on a 0.2g BB

  • Full Auto (AEG/Gas, Pistol & Rifle) 350FPS

  • Semi Mode Only (AEG/Gas Rifles) 425FPS with 4 seconds between shots to simulate cocking and to stop people spamming their trigger

  • Bolt Action Sniper Rifle (Spring Rifle Only) 500FPS

Any gun following these rules, that fire at above 350FPS should adhere to a 30 metre minimum engagement distance. It is the shooters responsibility to understand how far 30 metres is as ignorance will not be accepted as an excuse for abuse of this rule.
Q: What is the minimum age for the weekender?
A: The minimum age to play is 14.
Children and family members are welcome to join you camping whatever the age.
Q: Can I come for just 1 of the days?
A: There are no day passes to this event.
Q: Can I come on my own or do I have to be part of a team?
A: You can do either, as you choose. Being part of a team is not a requirement - go freelance or join up with others.
Q: Can I bring a generator?
A: Yes, but please choose wisely when positioning yourself in the camping area! While we are aware that people have come to GZ to enjoy themselves, we ask that everyone is aware that some people will be going to bed at a reasonable hour. All music, films and generators must be switched off, or down to an acceptable level as it gets late.

Marshals will be patrolling the camping area and if you are asked to reduce your volume, please do so without argument.

They will decide if the hour is too late or the volume is too loud. Not complying with their request will result in you being asked to turn it off completely, or leave the site
Q: Can I use pyros on site?
A: Hot burning pyros, like Enola Gay, TLSFx or Danger Zone are not allowed, not even the ring pull versions.

If you want to use grenades then purchase either a blank firing grenade (9mm or below) or something that uses gas or compressed air to fire.

Q: How far away is the camping site from the parking and game area!
A: You park next to your tent, the game and exhibitors area is between 1 and 5 minutes walk depending on where you setup!
Q: Can I bring a caravan?
A: Yes, but you must use that as your living, sleeping and socialising area. You will not be permitted to pitch a tent or a marquee in addition to your caravan (excluding awning) as it will occupy too much space forcing others to camp further away than necessary.
Q: Can I bring a dog?
A: They are discouraged for several reasons - not least of which being that we can not supervise them whilst you are in the game zone and can't have a whole pack of dogs roaming peoples camping areas!
Q: Iím coming from far away, I can only get flights/ferry that arrive the day before.
A: No arrivals, for whatever reason, are allowed before Friday morning. If you need to arrive in Ringwood before the event is due to start we recommend the following close-by hotels for the night: Travelodge, Premier Inn, The Village, & St Leonards Hotel.
Q: Can I arrange my own portable toilet?
A: No. For everyone's safety on site and so as not to cause excess traffic in the camping arena - particularly large lorries - no outside arrangements can be made.
Q: Are there any showers?
A: I'm afraid there aren't any showers, but feel free to bring your own camping one so long as it doesn't need to be plumbed in.
Q: Are there battery & phone charging facilities?
A: We do offer NiMH & NiCd gun battery charging facilities in the main field however there is always a long queue. If possible please make sure you have enough batteries/charge in them to last you.

We do not offer sockets for phone charging.
Q: What is the deposit price?
A: The deposit price for players is £30. The remainder can then be paid at the event (cash only) or before hand in £5 increments from your booking page.
Q: Are HPA guns allowed at the NAE?
A: Although there will be no gas charging facilities at the NAE for HPA guns, they are permitted, as long as they conform to our normal FPS limits and have the ability to be tournament locked. This applies to ALL HPA guns regardless of make or model and there will be no exclusions. If you do not have the ability to tournament lock the gun, then you will not be able to use it.
Q: Are there camo requirements for the different teams?
A: No, you are free to wear any type of camo/kit you want. We issue coloured bands to identify which team players are on (included in your player pack).
Q: When do I get my player pack?
A: When you get to the event there will be a sign in area where player packs are handed out containing your player tags, team bands, game plan & map.
