Please do not drink the creek water from this property as we have not tested the sources of the water. This facility takes no responsibility for the safety of the field. If you play, you are assuming all risks involved and understand that the field is provided in “as is” condition.

CODE OF CONDUCT FOR GAME DAYS
This document must be signed and dated before a player will be allowed to play on the field. By signing this document, you are signifying that you have read and understood the basic rules of play for the Parker’s Airsoft Field and its host OP-IV LLC. Failure to follow these rules is grounds for being escorted off the field or outright banned from playing. This form is the abridged version of our rules, the ones we have the most problems with, or people ask the most about. Complete game day rules will be gone over at the safety briefing before play but understand that whoever is running the field for a selected game you may attend, may not adhere strictly to every one of these rules. If a game day host does NOT mention changes to any of these rules, ASSUME THEY ARE ALL BEING USED! • Airsoft is a game of HONOR above anything else. We all love to win, but this is NOT an online game where you can hide behind your keyboard anonymously on the internet. This is NOT Call of Duty. You CAN NOT CHEAT HERE AND EXPECT TO GET AWAY WITH IT • CALL YOUR HITS! If you are being shot, SOMEONE SEES YOU AND IS SHOOTING YOU! • THESE ARE NOT REAL GUNS! They shoot plastic bbs. Just because you put 50 rounds downrange, does NOT mean you hit someone. Do not holler out “I shot you! You’re hit! Call your hits!” If you think a player is cheating, tell a ref and we will watch them • We divide into 2 main teams to play on game days Green and Tan. We tell the side you are on by the COLOR OF YOUR SLEEVES. Because most players wear tac vests of some type, it's hard to tell teams by chest color, so we use YOUR SLEEVES. For events we will have a uniform restriction. For the INITIATION the color uniform restrictions are GREEN and TAN. IF you show up with out the proper color uniforms you will NOT be allowed to play. Even if you have purchased a ticket.
