AirsoftCon 2010 - Airsoft Event & Convention, West Virginia Penitentiary

September 10th - 12th

AirsoftCon 2010 is a three day airsoft experience that features an airsoft convention and airsoft event all at one unique location. A modern 40k square foot convention center sits inside the prison walls of the West Virginia Penitentiary. The WV Penitentiary main structure is over 1,100' feet long with many rooms and exteriors structures. Come for one day or all three!

Test your squad’s skills against our Shadow Squad Role Players in different scenarios. Rescue a science team being held hostage in a science lab by terrorists. Perform a realistic drug raid when an undercover officer calls in for backup.

The event will also feature multiple squad based force-on-force scenarios throughout the day and night.

Hone your squad’s skills with a FREE 2-hour CQC training course provided by High Risk Training*.

During downtime browse the vendors and exhibitors in the conference center.

All of the event details will be available soon, this is a complex event and we are still working out some of the smaller details. I can give you the following details now:
  • Registration will open on July 1st at midnight.
  • The event registration fee will be $95. This will include a 2 hour CQC training class offered by High-Risk-Training. Sponsor gift bag. Access to the convention, classes, and speakers over the 3 days. All meals (Friday dinner to Sunday lunch). Event t-shirt & patch. On-site camping. And of course access to participate in the airsoft event and any other event related activities.
  • The airsoft event portion will be open to those who are 18 years or older.
  • The FPS limit with 350FPS w/ .2 bbs.
  • The majority of the event will take place Saturday afternoon/evening until early Sunday morning. With smaller squad based force-on-force based scenarios throughout Saturday during convention show hours.

The convention aspect will be open to all ages.

The Mini-OPs are not so mini anymore! We have extended the Saturday & Sunday Mini-OPs to an all-day scenario. These are full on MILSIM scenarios that also include access to the convention all weekend. The Mini-OPs are open to those who are 16 years old or older. Check the link below for registration and additional details. All OP: White Dragon participants are also welcome to participate in the Mini-OPs as your schedule (and energy) permits.

The class/seminar/speaker schedule is currently being put together and will be available soon.
