Airsoft Insurance and new standards in 2013

We have recently completed our 2013 paintball/Airsoft Insurance application for The Adrenaline outdoor park and Indoor tactical arena and noticed some alarming new clauses; I'd like to talk to other operators of fields and people in the Industry that New Airsoft Standards my affect.

These changes could drastically affect Organized Airsoft play across Canada.

why keep it between field operators? why not share with the airsoft community?

But disorganized play is still okay?

Seriously though, what changes are you talking about? Having a discussion between field operators is fine and all, but unless it is secret squirrel stuff why not spill the beans. We may not all be field operators but we all have an insight (some more than others).

It would be nice if you cared to explain the clauses that will "drastically affect Organized Airsoft play across Canada" Kind of a serious thing to say with no explanations.

I wonder..... maybe there is a new clause that says "if anyone gets hit with a small, 6mm BB at anytime while at your facility, they will not be covered, and subsequently the injured party along with ourselves (insurance company) will sue you till your bankrupt"

Seen posts on Facebook by a pretty reliable source with rumors of mouth protection requirements. No further info.

fps to 350 I get, but requiring people to have clear lowers...thats an odd one. I don't see how clear lowers will make the game any more/less dangerous OP. we meed your input on exactly what your talking about!

It was part of the rewrite in the clause to have only have guns with clear lowers, and fps to 350, along with mandatory face protection. Again I have not seen the actual document this is from a reliable source on a facebook thread

In what stupid way would the color of a gun could affect an insurance claim?...Ah yes...The way that it gives them another reason not to pay.

I don't mind the 350 fps since that's the same fps most paintball fields are required to enforce on markers. But come on if they are going to try to sneak in clear lowers even if its not required by law, then they have to do the same to paintball markers especially the more realistic markers. It doesn't really make sense cause all they are going to do is drive away customers of their insures and well they will lose money when policy holders drop the airsoft clauses when their airsoft business tanks.
