How to attend to a game?

You may laugh at me for asking this question but honestly I've never played an airsoft game before and very curious about this. I see a lot of events here but how to attend to them, I wonder. Is it just go to the event's location and call the organizer to be in or something? In addition, what should I bring to the game? Thank you all!

Post you're "in" and they'll add you to the roster
Specify if you need rentals though and read rules of game ie: camo, goggle and fps restrictions

what should I bring to the game
All your "combat equipement" and the things you leave at the safe zone and/or respawn point. Bring only what you will need.

Here's a little list of what I humped today :

"Combat equipement" :
Uniform (BDU, Boots, Headgear)
AEG
Plate Carrier
Mags
sidearm
Water
Food
Radio
Medipack (Depend on the game)
Red Flag
Paper and Pencils/Pen.

Bag at the Respawn :
More Food
More Water
Ammo
Spare Battery

Take that basic kit and add any Item that can be relevent (Raingear, Stove, etc.) depending on the situation.

I have some questions to expand this thread.

Rules are event based right?

Also is there a common FPS restriction on rifles to be used, or is that also up to who holds the event?

Generally no more than 400 fps for rifles, 450 for bolt action.

Usually, there is a concensius among the community that the fps is 400 max outdoors and 350 indoors.

BUT, some organizers will allow higher fps outdoors and others ask for lower fps indoors.

So, yes, the fps rules are up to the organizer of the events.

Post your "in" and have your basic gear ready.

Basic gear:
- primary gun (usually an AEG) + magazine(s)
- battery for gun
- smart battery charger for battery
- quality BBs to feed the gun (avoid anything sold at Canadian Tire & Walmart - they will ruin the gun's internals, and likely your day)
- eye protection (paintball masks/goggles are typical; military rated goggles are also common)
- quality boots with good ankle support
- BDUs (optional)
- gear vest (optional, recommended)
- estimated cost: $800-$1000
