“Red Dawn East”
3-Day Airsoft Event
Produced by MiR TACTICAL
Sept 28,29,30, 2018

Red Dawn VIII – Last Red Dawn at EMR!! Join us for the largest airsoft event in the North East. We  will also be hosting a shooting competition, sponsored by Tippmann, which will test your skills! The Mir Tactical store will be on location with excellent deals! Will you choose the resistance or the side with the invading forces? Sign up today!

The Story:

During the height of the cold war, NATO members withdrew their membership leaving America to stand on their own against the Warsaw Pact countries that are quickly expanding their influence across the globe. On a September morning, the small town of Calumet Co. is the drop zone for elite Soviet paratroopers who quickly overrun the town and seize control of all civil activities. We come to learn that along with the Soviet paratroopers, Cuban forces have aligned themselves with the USSR for an all-out invasion of America. Teenagers, still in high school, take to the mountainous region surrounding their town and after about a month of hiding out; accidentally provoke hostile actions against the invading forces. Once this happens, all hell breaks loose. The kids, who call themselves “Wolverines” (based on their high school mascot and lead by a former student and quarterback) are wanted as terrorists and start actively fighting back using guerrilla tactics. They soon learn that they are very good at it.

After the Event Play is over for the day, ENJOY EMR’s OTHER AMENITIES such as Outdoor Volleyball, Horseshoes, Cornhole, Kan Jam, Bocce Balls, and the traditional Bon Fire plus Ping Pong, Beer Pong, Foosball, and Cards upstairs in our full Rec. Center.  Our On-Site RC Track will also be open Both Friday and Saturday Evenings for Racing under the Lights. The EMR Store now Carries ICE, FIREWOOD, CAMPING SUPPLIES, and SPORT SMOKE along with Food, Snacks, Beverages, and Paintball/Airsoft Equipment!

Rules & Safety

(EMR) holds safety as its #1 priority followed closely by fun and excitement! Airsoft & Milsim is geared towards the mature, level-headed player. Common sense and the right, fair-play, honest attitude are a must at our events.

(EMR) requires everyone to have a barrel cover over the tip of their gun when not on the playing field, as well as magazine out and safety on! All pistols must be holstered.

All players are required to attend the safety briefing prior to the start of the game!
(EMR) Approved Face Protection must remain on at all times while on the field or Chronograph Areas. Do not remove Face Protection under any circumstance. Fully sealed approved goggle systems must be used including paintball Goggle/Mask systems or approved Airsoft goggles that meet or exceed ASTM standards. The full face and ears must be covered by a mask system for players under 18 and for over 18 full face and ears must be covered by at least a balaclava, bandana, or other protection to prevent injury or penetration of BBs. There will be a Mandatory Ejection of any players lifting or removing goggle/ full-face mask system while in goggle on areas (Playing Field, Chronograph Area, Target Area) after being personally warned once. This includes any action in which a player touches his/her Eye Protection in such a way that the seal of the goggles is broken. NO MESH GOGGLES!(ANSI Z87.1 and/or ASTM F-1776-99a rated (or greater) ballistic eye protection will be accepted.)

Cease Fire: Players or staff should call “cease fire” if you or another player is injured or loses their eye protection and requires immediate Admin/Medical attention. You will need to both vocally and via Comms (if possible) make the “cease fire” call with approximate location and details of the incident.

Mandatory Equipment: Gun, Face Protection/Goggles, red dead rag.

Recommended Equipment: Helmet, boots, knee pads, gloves, long pants and long sleeve shirt.

YOU MAY NOT WEAR RED CLOTHING OR GEAR. Red represents Dead on the kill rag. This would confuse players.
NO PHYSICAL CONTACT OR HAND TO HAND COMBAT WILL BE ALLOWED! (Violation of this rule will result in immediate ejection)

No verbal abuse, name-calling, profanity, etc. will be tolerated.

No stealing, vandalizing, or fighting. (you will be turned over to the police)

No Drugs or Alcohol

Game staff or Refferee has the final say. So no Arguing with Staff.

No blind firing permitted. You must be aware of where your BBs are flying.

BIODEGRADIBLE BB’S ONLY! Any weight BB can be used for game play after chrono (no metal or ceramic BBs of any kind are allowed to be used. If caught using either, there will be an automatic ejection from the facility). Vendors will have plenty of bio BB’s for sale.

(EMR) requires every player to have a red dead rag on their person while playing. The red dead rag is to be placed on top of your head or held up high when you are hit to symbolize you are out.

At (EMR) battle games there is no restriction on what type of airsoft magazines you can use.

Airsoft is a game of honor, CALL YOUR OWN HITS. Do not call opposing team players out. If you believe the hits on that player are not being called please inform a ref and he will look into it. Players caught cheating will get one warning and after that they will be ejected from the game.

Hit Rule: If you are hit anywhere on your person or gear you are out. Friendly fire counts. All Hits count except for Ricochets. After you are hit yell “HIT” or “OUT” and pull out your red dead rag and make sure it is visible. Weapon Hits do not count.

Dead Man Tell No Tales. which means that if you are shot, you may not communicate with any player in play. The only thing you are allowed to do is call for a “MEDIC”. Please walk back to your base or respawn point.

Grenades: No dummy grenades allowed! In order to kill a player with a grenade your grenade must discharge. (Thunder B’s, Tornado,etc.) Kill radius 10′. No real explosive grenades will be allowed.

At (EMR) Airsoft games smoke is allowed, but only at certain areas on the field that will be identified before the game and ONLY SPORT SMOKE can be used. No other brands of smoke can be used!

Bang Bang rule: If a player enters in close range combat, inside the 10′ minimum engagement distance where firing his/her weapon is against the rules, and has a clear line of sight to the enemy and the enemy is “dead to rights” use the BANG BANG rule. BANG BANG rule is put into play for safety reasons only. It is not a way of killing someone tactically. If your enemy says BANG BANG to you, you should honor the call and immediately yell HIT and pull out your red dead rag.

Radios: (not mandatory) but recommended to get game updates for your team. There is NO radio warfare. Please no listening on enemy team’s channels. Channels 1-3 are used for staff and game control, 4-6 Alpha, 7-9 Bravo.
