Do you want to see tomorrow?
In the Game Zone, you must wear your eye protection at all times. Do not take them off if you want to wipe your eyes, or your glasses have fogged up, or you are just fed up of wearing them. Keep them on.
You may remove your glasses only when you are in the Safe Zone. If you see another player who has taken their glasses off during a game, then get them to put them back on immediately.
You can stop a game by shouting ‘Game!’ several times. You might be able to save someone’s eyesight this way. For example, a member of the public might be walking their dog, or just walking up to see what we are doing.
If your glasses fog up and you can’t see a thing, shout for a marshal who will help you to the safe zone.
You are welcome to bring your own glasses or goggles, but they must meet EN166B specs. If the glasses don’t have it stamped on them, then they don’t meet the specs. We are happy to lend you a pair of goggles for the day.
You can buy good quality eye protection for about 10 pounds. At that price, the glasses may last for years. Don’t skimp.
We recommend full face protection, especially for your first day.
Each site is split into two areas, the Game Zone and the Safe Zone.
It’s safe to take your glasses off here. However, it’s only safe here because we have some other rules. Do not put your magazines into your gun in the safe zone. Don’t fire your gun in the safe zone.
Put your glasses on as you move into the Game Zone.
Now you can put your magazine into the gun.
If you hear ‘Game!’ shouted, then take the magazines out of your gun,
Leaving the Game Zone.
Take the magazine out of the gun. Fire off a few shots in semi-automatic mode. This will clear the gun of any BBs making an accident in the Safe Zone much less likely. It will also prolong the life of the spring in the gun.
Keep your eye pro on until you are in the Safe Zone.
At the start of each game day, one of the marshals will go through the safety brief and the game rules. Please listen to it.
