Hmm.... about 15- 20 hours a week , running events, Hosting.

Another 8 to 10 hours a week in research , curriculum development, program development.

How much do I play... not as much as I would like... but I facilitate the games that others play in.. so If I claim all their hours... lets see 200 to 250 hours a week... average...

Myself and another club member host a game every sunday.

As for Airsoft contribution..... airsoft is maybe 1/4 of my life. The other 3/4 is work. I don't sleep.

I have possibly played more games than my ASC post count. Of course I have been playing for over 11 years now, so that may have something to do with it.


People should go by the simple rule - Do not post more than you play.


*EDIT* - If you have joined this forum, and have been playing for less than 6 months, and your post count is higher than mine. Something is wrong with that.

So be patient, read the rules, follow the rules. Whining is pretty sad.

in kamloops we have only really been a group for a few months but we have been managing to play at least once a week. we do plan on holding a evening game every week or two so guys who work weekends, or have class during the day can come out.

only get to play during christmas/may+august
schooling away from home = no car = no game


p.s.but if anyone who is around waterloo (UW) and actually wants to reply to me, we can meet up sometimes, so far everyone who posted "waterloo" havent replied to my PM or emails.

I probably haven't played since august, but I have been acquiring gear and parts for the upcoming summer season. The reason for this is school, lifting at the gym, and MMA classes during the week, and on the weekends I work, so that leaves 0 time for airsoft during the year.

During the summer I'd say 2-3 times a month if possible.

I HATE playing in the winter. Plus I barely play these days. I usually just take pictures.

But when the snow fucks off I'll be making an effort to get out every gameday at Foxden.

In my defense, there are no hosted events where I live...plenty of people play paintball, but the markey for Airsoft is very, VERY small. I know of only one other person who's interested in Airfost in my area...

Most are not active

according to this poll over 80% of the people who replied to the poll are not active players.

Which begs the question.. where is the "real" airsoft community?

I don't even own any skirmishable guns any more...

I fully recognize that I represent only a tiny percentage of airsofters though.
I'm holding out until my schedule gets better (and my cash-flow).

It's probably just a phase - the "chairsofting" epidemic. It'll probably cycle, and more events will pop up, and people will get tired of not playing...
same here.. the nearest place I know of is .. wasaga paintball... and that's 2.5 hours away from me >_O. toronto isn't the most airsoft friendly place. how's alberta? i'm thinking of moving there in the future :-D

What defines an active player? This hobby is partly (if not mostly) about collecting, playing is only one side of it. 60% maybe play once a month, the other 40% play at LEAST once a month. I would say that's a fairly substantial active player base.
