HOW?! This is the fun part... Think your team has what it takes to be #1? Come December 14th, it’s time to put
all that bragging and trash talking aside and put your money where your mouth is. Why? We’re gonna call your
bluff! In conjunction with TSD Tactical, we’re throwing a team-based woodland event. We’re looking for 10 5-man
teams to compete for the right to be the best of the best. Each member of the top 3 teams will receive a trophy
with 1st and 2nd place also scoring AEGs or GBBs for the entire team! Individual raffle prizes will also be
available for ALL attendees regardless of placement in final results. Registration is on a first-come-first-
serve basis and there will be a 20% discount for whole team registration. Exact scenario details will be
addressed on the day of the event. Clues? All we can say is… BRUSH UP ON THOSE POKER SKILLS! There are only 10
team spots available so register your team today to secure your chance to be #1! Click here for a complete list
of poker hands and how to play.
Admission even cheaper?! That’s right. Help support the USMC’s Toys for Tots! Each player who brings an
unwrapped toy will save an additional $10 off the registration fee. Conditions: The toy must have a $10 or more
MSRP value which means you can pull it out of the bargain bin at a Target, WalMart or Toys’r’Us just so long as
the regular MSRP is $10 or more. And yes, we’ll know on average, the MSRP of items given, so don’t try to pass
of that “Los Amigos” multi-pack as a G.I. Joe 25th Anniversary Battle Pack.
UNIFORM REQUIREMENTS: NO ACUs or ABUs allowed! This includes hats and tactical gear! ONLY CONTROLLERS ARE
PERMITTED TO WEAR ACUs/ABUs. If you're seen in it, you'll either be sent home to change or play in your undies...
FPS LIMITS: AEGs, GBBs, NBBs, etc., and any other BB-firing gun (except PTWs) is welcome so long as it meets the
FPS limitation of 400fps w/.25bbs NO EXCEPTIONS WILL BE MADE!
NO SYSTEMA PTWs:
Every event we throw, we get bombarded with controversial emails about individuals swapping out PTW cylinders in
the field to break FPS rules. When holding public events, you cannot guarantee the type of individuals who will
show up, but you can guarantee a certain level of safety. And that is all we're trying to do. While we do
understand that there are outstanding members of the community who own these, there are also those who aren't so
"outstanding" and it is because of those individuals that we have decided that it is easiest and in everyone's
best interest to "just say no." NAM philosophy is, if you can fork over near $1500+ for a PTW, you can more than
afford the $25 for a rental gun that shoots within the FPS limits (see below for rental info). For those owners
of PTWs who state "yeah, but it's not that easy to swap them out!" or, "That's highly impractical!" We'll dispel
that myth by offering this video from AATV's complete review of the Systema PTW. Note the ease and length of
time that it takes them to swap out the cylinder:
RENTALS: What if I don't have a gun? Rentals will be available for $25 per person and will include an AEG,
freshly charged battery and 1-HiCap full of BBs. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to secure your rental.
