Go Ahead, Make My Day at Tactical Airsoft Arena - Date Set

UPDATE

As of 1/27/2013, there are 37 people interested in a Tactical Airsoft Arena activity.  So I'm picking a Friday (2/8) and let's go ballistic.  The plan is to meet at the Tactical Airsoft around 7:30PM.

 

The $15 admission fee includes playing time from when we open until we close.

The $15 rental fee includes a face mask, 1 airsoft replica, 1 hi capacity magazine and 1000 bb's.

Remember to dress as if you're going to be shot by plastic bb's traveling at high velocity.  Long sleeves, gloves and loose clothing.  We do not provide clothing if you are not dressed to play.

What's Airsoft?

TAA - Tactical Airsoft Arena is an indoor airsoft field where players participate in simulated military and law enforcement style (play) combat using airsoft replicas in a safe and controlled environment.

 

ORIGINAL POSTING

They are located in Rockville. No date suggestion or anything yet. Feel free to take this one a run with it, but I wanted to get the idea out.

    Organizing could have been better. Staff was helpful but they had a limited supply of rentals, so not enough for all.:-) Recommendation- confirm if they can hold a set # of rentals and how many. Cap # attendees at that.

      Don't think we will organize another airsoft trip. No way to reserve for desired time slot. Limited guns. Can't cap attendees because we don't require deposits and RSVP not accurate. In the future we will stick with paintball. A lot easier to organize. Nonetheless, Thanks for your suggestions and I will try to organize better instead if simply converting an idea into a "designated" activity.

    Sorry I missed it. Had to watch niece and nephews. Count me in next time. I love things like this.

    I was a bit disappointed. This was my first Meetup and after standing around for almost 45 min without a rental, play, or communicatoin from others, I left.

    Games are about 20 minutes. You respawn.

    Just arrived around 8:30. Sadly no more rentals. Linda says it doesn't hurt.

    I'm returning from Delaware and running late. How late can I get there and still join in?

  • Parth K.

    sorry.. caught with some other task

    February 8, 2013

  • M R.

    I won't be able to attend.

    February 8, 2013

  • Wenter

    So is the price $15 or $30 (I see both listed). Also, should padded or layered clothes be worn? Do the shots hurt?

    February 7, 2013

    • Keith

      Yes on both. If you have something to pad/cover your chest it would be a good idea

      February 8, 2013

  • Wenter

    Ok, I looked closer and it appears that the total price is 30 dollars. I probably won't get there until 7 at the earliest. It that too late?

    Unless I can get someone to pick me up at rockville

    What's the weather forecast for fri? I have a long drive and if the weather is poor I won't be able to attend.

    February 7, 2013

    • Jack

      49 degrees, 60% chance of rain is what weather.com says. Not sure how that affects the drive ...

      February 7, 2013

    • Beth P.

      I am under a winter weather advisory from 7am friday to 7am Sat. The advisory for mixed precipitation changing to snow soooo still not sure about me....

      February 7, 2013

  • Jack

    Okay, this is what I've been told by TAA. "We don't have a really large lobby so maybe the parking lot? With a group that large, I highly suggest everybody show up as close to 6 as possible so that we don't run out of rentals."

    "We can accommodate up to 50 but are limited in the number of rental guns available."

    If you show up early, please ask how many guns that have left for rental and share that with the group.

    February 7, 2013

  • Jack

    Arrive early as rentals may be limited

    February 7, 2013

  • Wenter

    Sounds fun!

    February 7, 2013

  • Jack

    I'm asking the Arena if they can give us a designated meeting area.

    Since we don't have t-shirts for club members, I recommend that the easiest way to identify another OAC member is to wear an article of clothing from one of the DC Sports teams (e.g. Wizards, Nationals, Redskins, United, Capitals).

    As of 2/5 there are 23 more people interested in Tactical Airsoft. So I'm guessing we'll have at least 15-20 people from this Meetup Group this Friday.

    Definitely want to do this!
    Does some one want to be awesome and offer me a ride from Rockville?
    I can be at the station by 5:40pm so timing is in what you wish.

  • Kim N.

    The facility is open Friday - 6:00PM - 11:00PM ($15 admission - $15 Rental). If meeting there to start at 7:00PM would for you, please say so in a comment. Thanks!

    January 27, 2013

  • Kim N.

    You say it will start around 7:30. Would there be potential to fix the start time. And I'd be happy to start earlier. Would 6:30 be an option or 7?

    January 27, 2013

    • Jack

      The facility is open Friday - 6:00PM - 11:00PM ($15 admission - $15 Rental). 7:00PM could probably work. Just leave a comment and ask people if they can meet up earlier too.

    In light of Newtown and Aurora massacres, and militarism of our youth at every opportunity, I find this choice of "ballistic adventure" offensive. There are many nature/nurture and life-celebrating ways to be adventuresome.

    January 27, 2013

  • Jack

    If you are still interested in participating, leave a note. If you need a ride from the Rockville Metro Station. Leave us a note too.

    Whats the estimated cost?

    January 26, 2013

    • Jack

      $30 on Friday nights, $40 on Saturdays.

    I would absolutely love to attend this event! I think that a date should be determined ASAP.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
