Thank you to all those who visited the NZ Airsoft display display and Shooting Range at the Classic Flyers Airshow over the weekend. The display was a great success, attracting a lot of interest and bringing awareness of Airsoft as a sport to many members of the public.
It was great to be able to promote not only Airsoft but also our local clubs. Having representative from Airsoft Ohope, Taupo Airsoft Hawks and Tauranga Airsoft Club on site to talk about the sport and answer questions really added weight to fact that Airsoft is a serious sport that is popular around the country. We made sure that contact information for the local clubs was included on the NZ Airsoft promotional flyers handed out at the show. Hopefully we will be seeing an influx of new members!
This was the first time we had a shooting range at an event and many were keen to have a blast. We will definitly be including a range at as many public events as we can in the future. A big thumbs up to JD, Pete and Jason who manned the range for most of the event, even when it was turning into a sauna! Well done guys!
The shipping container was used for the range was supplied and sponsored by Royal Wolf. Sponsored delivery was supplied by Priority Logistics. Big thanks also to Kevin from Page & Macrae who helped organise the container as well as build our safety cover. The range was also fitted with polystyrene supplied by Brad at All Wall, helping to keep the noise down and our range officers sane - Thanks for the support! The sponsorship helped keep the costs for the event down allowing the proceeds from the range to cover most of the costs of attending the Airshow this year.
Thanks again to all those who attended, helped out and had a shoot. We look forward to seeing all of you on the Airsoft field!
