GMAC is a gathering of airsoft and military simulation enthusiasts designed to provide a venue for the sharing of interest and ideas pertaining to the activity of Military simulation using Airsoft Arms. GMAC will be a great place to be introduced to the activity, to meet friends and to interact will all facets of “Airsoft Culture”.

GMAC will provide a place for participants and venders to meet for trade and demonstration of products and services of interest to enthusiasts of military simulation.

GMAC will provide a venue for local groups and teams to present their organizations to potential new members.

GMAC will provide a place for participants to meet, show off their kit and generally spend time in the company of many others of like mind. There will be opportunities to see the newest kit available from a number of premier suppliers. There will be a “try before you buy” range to allow you to test fire a wide selection of Airsoft Arms.

Other attractions planned include a GGB and AEG repair workshop.
There will be round table discussions on Scenario design and Game Hosting as well.

Important information concerning, dress, and deportment..

Please do not dress in public with kit or gear. There are Change rooms on site if you want to wear gear to the event.
also... anyone bringing a Airsoft weapon must ensure that it is properly transported to and from the event. Do not arrive in head to toe multicam with a M4 wrapped up in a garbage bag we should all know better.
If you are bringing gear and guns.. you are responsible for their security and safe stowage. We will have security on site and a safe storage area with controlled access, but gear flopped all around falling out of open bags and gun cases lying open are an invitation for dissapointment.
