-Be 13 years of age or older, or accompanied by someone who is who will take responsibility for you.
-Familiarize yourself with the rules and schedule
-Show up on time
-Attend the orientation if this is your first APOC. Orientation will be held at 9:30 in the staging area. Try to arrive by 9:15
-Be familiar with dart/blaster restrictions
-Bring Protective Eyewear. Everyone is required to wear eye protection. Goggles or safety glasses which are rated for impact are strongly recommended. Masks of any sort are discouraged (This isn't Canada, no one is aiming for your face).
-Bring your own darts and blaster. Assume you will need around twice as many darts as usual, and/or be prepared to sit out a round just for dart sweeps. Bring a backup blaster. Don't expect anyone to wait for you to fix your gun to start the next round. Bring a springer pistol. Bring a blaster that fires stock darts if you want to participate in the Superstock rounds.
-Lunch is your own responsibility. There will not be enough time to leave for lunch. I suggest you bring a packed lunch and eat on the field. If you leave for lunch you *will* miss rounds.
-Bring Water. It will be extremely hot and humid. A minimum of 2 liters of water/Gatorade is recommended (many people bring at least a gallon). There is nowhere to get water on the field.
-Bring Hat/Sunscreen/Sunglasses. It will be hotter than satan's taint, and there is not much shade at the park. Bring sun protection or you will burn.
-Follow the instructions of the hosts and field supervisors. Certain people will be designated as field supervisors and will be helping us run rounds. Listen to what they say. Our authority as hosts and admins extends to them for the purposes of this war.
-Clean up after yourself. Flagging tape, bottles, etc must be removed from the park.
TLDR: Use common sense & Don’t be a dick.
-No hard-tipped darts! This includes FVJs, Voberry, and Glue domes.
-All HOMEMADE darts must be made must be either traditional #8/#6 slugs or SCSs
If you would like to learn how to make SCS darts, see this video for more details.
If you would like to learn how to make traditional Slug darts, see this thread for more details.
(If you would like to use hoppers, these homemade darts are the only ones that feed reliably)
-Yes, your Worker Gen 1&2 darts are allowed.
-300 FPS CAP! All blasters must chrony under 300 FPS. A chronograph will be provided at the event if you do not have access to one.
-DO NOT bring any realistic or dark colored blasters, we are here to have fun, not get shot by the popo.
-SEPTORS are permitted, however must be modified in such a way that they don’t resemble a paintball marker
-NO HPA/LPA/Co2, if we see it, we will kindly escort you to the nearest paintball field or the next plane ticket to down under.
-NO VGS Sentinels if your name is Van James, get REKT m9.
Generally speaking, if you’re questing how much your blaster resembles a toy, leave it home. If you want to be the guy at APOC who's gun shoots farther than everyone else's, *you* should stay home. If you are still unsure approach me before the day to confirm if it's legal or not.
Just use common sense and don’t be an asshole, that’s Ted’s job.
-Anything that would impede the path of the dart counts as a hit (their blaster, their shoelace, their wavy hair, etc)
-NO Barrel taps
-NO face masks
I don’t have one yet, whoops. Ban me Langley, I dare you. Expect lots of 3:15, Carpe, Wingman, Speed rounds, etc. A lot of the day is subject to change depending on what people want to play. If you have suggestions during the day feel free to come up and pitch them to me.
CANCELLATION POLICY/RAIN DATE
Short answer - there isn't one.
The cancellation policy is that there is no cancellation policy. We plan this war months in advance, and rescheduling is not an option. Unless a state of emergency is declared, I'll be at the site on Saturday morning. If hazardous conditions arise, such as lightning, we may temporarily suspend play, but this war goes on rain or shine and you should be prepared to play in moderate rain.
If you actually read all this comment "Ted sucks" so I know we're all on the same page.
