CERTAIN APERTURE HOSTAGE RESCUE

Event Details

What equipment will I need?


A detailed list of equipment is being assembled by the planners. However, you will definitely require an airsoft gun with magazines, gas/batteries, and BBs. You will need some way to carry that equipment (plate carrier, belt, or chest rig setup). You will require some overnight sleep equipment and shelter appropriate for camping in October. You'll also require the basic Blackline Equipment kit list.

  • Eye Protection (ANSI Z87.1 rated)
  • A notepad and pen/pencil (a phone is not acceptable)
  • A watch (a phone is not acceptable)
  • A flashlight (a phone is not acceptable)
  • A compass (a phone is not acceptable)
  • A whistle
  • A UHF radio and/or cellular phone
Blackline often uses Zello for long distance communications. We recommend you download the Zello app for your iOS or Android phone, and find a good headset or earbud that you can use with it. You can check out our article on reliable Zello accessories by clicking here.




Do I have to be 18+ years old?


Yes. Our insurance requires all participants to be 18 years of age or older. We are unable to allow minors, even if they are escorted by their parents.




Do I need special training?


In most cases, your experience with airsoft will be enough. There will be numerous opportunities to practice your roles on the assault so that you can become proficient. If you're looking to be part of the entry team going into the structure to rescue the hostages, we have acquired a training company to provide you with additional skills. Participants that take the training will be given priority on entry team positions. You can find that training by clicking here. We might also recommend the radio communications course to help you communicate more clearly on the network. Click here for our current list of events to find a radio course.

COVID-19

Do I have to wear a mask?


Yes. You must have a mask or face covering with you for this event. If you are travelling in a vehicle, entering a building, or operating less than 2 meters from team mates, you will be required to wear a face covering.

There are no exceptions to this rule. If you are unable to wear a mask, we recommend you do not sign up. You will not be able to participate if you do not have a face covering.




What about the gathering size restrictions in Ontario?


We are working to evaluate the impacts of the rules on our event. At the time, the social gathering rules are set to return to the larger group sizes before our event occurs. However as a precaution we have capped the event at 25 participants, and we will keep this updated as we learn more. Current Ontario Legislation - Click here
