3man Tournament Update. Restrictions, teams and what to bring.

By | Tournament, Vic5s | No Comments

3-man update…

Following todays update from the Premier, the tournament is set to kickoff in a far more normal fashion. Needless to say we are very excited to have it all going again. That said, here’s where we sit today….

Registered Teams So far..

Cartel Red
Cartel Black
Hustle
Lumberjacks 1
Lumberjacks 2
VRG
Party Mix

Covid Rules

Life has gotten a lot easier with the new COVID rules but there are a few things we still need to be doing.
1. Contact tracing still needs to occur. Apart from the waiver there will be a second form that you will need to use to sign in and out of the venue.
2. The restrictions about masks have eased a lot but there are still some requirements that we need to remain compliant with.  Masks still need to be carried and worn when indoors, or when people cannot social distance themselves. It’s fair to say that a lot of the players are a friendly, touchy feely bunch when they play in a team but we need to make sure that people keep doing the right thing so we don’t get stitched up by not playing by the rules.

Team Pits

We will be setting the team pits on field 3 to keep plenty of distance from the rental players coming through. This may make us a little short on tables. If you have trestle tables that you can bring please do.  The 7-day forecast suggests that the temperature will be 27 degrees next Sunday so please bring shade, fluids and sunscreen as well.

Times

As always : Gates will open at 7am, captains meeting at 8 and unless I blow a burst disk again or something, guns up at 8.30.
On that note, do us a favour, don’t try to start coming through before 7am, even if we are here, we will need a little time before to start getting ready.

See ya next week!

The rest of the info will be as per the previous information..

Snipers Den 3 v 3 – 29/11/20

 

 

paintball safety course

Safety Courses are back! 15/11 and 22/11

By | license, Paintball | No Comments

Paintball Safety Courses

Firstly, we want to acknowledge all the people that have enquired about the paintball safety courses since the lockdowns started in March. In any other year, this would have represented a huge amount of players and teams that would have entered the sport. Unfortunately a turd of a virus had other ideas and stopped the safety courses in their tracks as well as the rest of our industry.
But things are looking up and we are starting to kick off the safety courses again.

The next 2 dates that we will run are :
Sunday 15/11/20 – 12.30pm
Sunday 22/11/20 – 12.30pm
We will look to add some more in the coming weeks if people cannot do Sundays.

What do I need?

Course cost is $30
Bring Photo ID such as drivers license
Takes about 1-1.5 hours + the test.
To Book – SMS Mathew on 0408535421 with the session that you would like to join.

Because Covid is a thing..

Bring and wear a face mask for the duration of the test.
We will be ensuring social distancing occurs throughout the course and test.
The course will be completed outdoors to help meet our requirements.
All participants will need to sign in at reception for contact tracing purposes.
Both sessions are limited to 10 people but we will add other timers if needed.

Cheers, hope to see you all soon!

3v3

Well what a year…

Who would have thought the industry and sport we all love would have been closed down for this long.
While its nice to have training back, we have decided we need to sneak in a tournament before the mess that is 2020 is over.

So here it is, time to dust off the cobwebs and see who still has what it takes.

The Basics :

3v3 – open pool.
Race to 2 format. Round Robin – Split deck games if required.
$250 per team rego – Draxxus Gold is back and $85 per box.
29th Nov – Gates open at 7 – Captains meeting at 8 – Guns up 8.30.
As always, REFs Inc will keep you all in line.
Get the regos in so we can plan but looking forward to seeing some competition back.

Some Extras

We will have a 1v1 competition added to the day – Completely Voluntary.
The 1v1 structure will depend a little on the level of interest.
1v1 will cost $20 – Half the cash will go to the winner, half will go to fXCK Cancer fundraiser.
We will be doing some additional fundraising for this great cause on the day as well so dig deep if you can.

Covid-19 response

Planning for Covid-19

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Covid-19 has caused a huge change to daily life in Australia already and if cases continue to rise, this may continue or increase. We wanted to take a moment to address what we are doing at Snipers Den paintball to make sure we are operating in the safest way possible. At the end of the day, we want all of our customers to have a fun time but more importantly, be safe in the process.

Why Paintball is still OK

There are a few reasons that we are comfortable in continuing to operate. If things change in the future, we would of course reassess this.

  • Paintball is played outdoors over a large area that reduces the transmission rate of the virus.
  • Masks are worn which already limit the transmission of the virus through coughs and sneezes

What we already do

There are systems that we already have in place already and is best practice from a hygiene perspective.

  • All masks, overalls and other rental equipment are cleaned and disinfected between every use. This system has been in place for more than 10 years and ensures customers have the best possible experience.
  • We operate small groups throughout the day meaning that the sessions are small and independent. The crossover between groups is minimal already.
  • One session time is checked in at once meaning that only your group is likely to be in the check-in building when checking in and out.
  • Toilets are cleaned daily (more if needed).

How we are stepping it up

Due to the increased risk of transmission at the moment, we are stepping things up in a few areas to minimise the potential of  transmission at the venue.

  • Staff will wear gloves when handling masks or overalls that have been worn. After handling these items, they are washing their hands with anti bacterial hand wash. This will assist in preventing transmission between groups and protect staff.
  • Antibacterial hand wash is available in the bathrooms at the venue.
  • Groups will be actively separated further to reduce any possible transmission between different sessions. We have a large outdoor area and plenty of room to spread out when groups are on a break.
  • Toilets will be cleaned twice per day with disinfectant. All surfaces in the check-in building will be cleaned and disinfected throughout the day.
  • We will return deposits for players who chose not to participate because they are not feeling well. While this deposit is normally nonrefundable as it is designed to cover the setup time and equipment rental, we would prefer potential participants to stay home if they are feeling unwell.
  • We will not put on staff that are not feeling well regardless of the likelihood that they have contracted Corona-19.
  • While we accept cash, we do have eftpos with tap and go to minimise the contact.

We have always purchased toilet paper in bulk and have plenty onsite so no-one needs to BYO.

We hope you all continue to participate in paintball at Snipers Den as we go through what we hope is a small interruption from a short-lived virus in Australia.

Cheers,

Mathew
