Congratulations to our first Affiliated site, Sim-Tac Airsoft
To the Irish airsoft community,
It is with great pleasure that the I.A.A. can announce that Sim-Tac Airsoft located at Gibstown, Co. Meath is the first site to be affiliated with the Irish Airsoft Association under the new affiliation program.
Members of the I.A.A. committee were invited to Sim-Tac Airsoft last Sunday, 18th May 2014 for their OhiShiBoom event and while there, were willingly given permission to observe their cronoing procedures, their safety speech and view their documentation ensuring that they are 100% legally compliant with all regulations governing an airsoft site operating in the Republic of Ireland.
The committee members can confirm the following:
• All the documentation was valid and up to date
• That their safety speech was satisfactory before commencement of the games
• That they have a first aider qualified and present on site
• That the chronoing procedures were in accordance with the I.A.A. “Good Chronoing Guide”
• That the safe zone was separated from the playing area and thus deemed safe for the removal of eye protection.
• That a visual inspection of the site did not pose a danger to the public
In return for Sim-Tac Airsoft’s affiliation to the I.A.A. we will in turn list them and any future affiliated sites on both our website and Facebook page as an I.A.A. approved airsoft site with contact details, so that parents and new people to the sport can avail of their services secure in the knowledge that their and/or their children’s safety is not at risk.
Sim-Tac Airsoft will also be permitted to place an advertising banner and logo on the I.A.A. website linking to their website and/or Facebook page.
In addition to this, the I.A.A. will help promote any affiliated site or retailer over the course of the year and in return, like any good partnership, they will help promote the Irish Airsoft Association and its’ members in return.
It is our hope that the airsoft community here in Ireland will show its’ support for Sim-Tac Airsoft and all future affiliated sites and retailers. So head over to their Facebook page and show your support, better still, visit their site and see how well it is run for yourself.
