  • Understand that you need to follow not only the letter of the rule but the spirit of the rule as well. We are not doing the rules lawyer thing, use your judgment and do the right thing. TMP events are much more about the experience than simply winning or losing.

TMP, it’s owner, sponsors, and/or operators assumes no liability for the safety of any player while at an event. Failure to sign a waiver will result in refusal to be allowed on the field. All waivers must be signed by player, parent/guardian (if under 18 years of age), and must be notarized. TMP, it’s owner and anyone associated has the right to refuse service to anyone.
  • TMP reserves the right to change it’s policies at any time and does not have to notify you. Furthermore, ignorance is not an excuse. As stated above, by showing up to a TMP event you are agreeing to abide by all TMP rules, regulations and policies.

Conduct

  • You are responsible for your conduct on and off the field. As milsim is a sport of honor, you are expected to act accordingly.
  • Be considerate of other players, aim for center mass. Head shots are not allowed when other parts of the body are exposed.
  • Cheating is not tolerated. Intentionally breaking any rule, no matter how minor may result in immediate removal from the field. This is your one warning.

Required Equipment

  • All players must wear full sealing ANSI Z87.1 rated eye protection any time they are outside the safe area.

  • There will be no firing of any weapons within the safe area (parking lot). If you need to test fire your weapon, walk on to the AO and do so.
  • At Snake’s LZ anything south of the power lines is a safe area.

Night Games

  • At night, each player will have a red “dead light”
  • SAWs will fire in short, 3-5 round bursts. This is to enable them to hear players call hits.

  • Blind Man are used to halt the game in the event of an emergency.
  • Anyone may halt the game if you or another player is injured and requires immediate medical attention or if someone takes off their eye protection.
  • In order to stop the game, yell “Blind Man!” Immediately get on the admin channel and report the incident by stating what has happened and the precise location. Stay on the admin channel in case the admins have any questions for you.
  • On the call of “blind man” all players stop in their current position, yell “Blind Man!”, place their weapons on safe and remove the magazine. Repeat the “blind man” call on your unit’s radio channel and be ready to assist if asked to by an admin.
  • Do not move until the “game on” call will be made. Only at that time may you reload your weapon and continue play.
