To the Irish airsoft community,
It is with great pleasure that the I.A.A. can announce that The Manor Airsoft, Summerville, Corbally More near Tramore, Co. Waterford is the second site to be affiliated with the Irish Airsoft Association under the new affiliation program.
Jim McCarthy (I.A.A. Public Relations Officer) was invited down to The Manor Airsoft Site last Sunday, 25th May 2014 and while there, he was joined by John Power, a local I.A.A. committee member and also committee member of the Whiskey Delta Team who run The Manor Airsoft Site. While there Jim was willingly given permission by the Whiskey Delta committee 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. Jim McCarthy is happy to 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 aiders qualified and present on site
• That the chronoing procedures were in accordance with the I.A.A. “Good Chronoing Guide”
