Hello! The best advice I can give you is to listen carefully to the site staff and rules, otherwise you'll be *that* guy who doesn't play by the rules.

Aside from general advice, I think it would be in your best interest to find find a way to wear full face protection, or at the very least full seal eye protection, which doesn't make you horribly uncomfortable. You only get one set of eyes, and dental work is expensive! My mother is a dentist, so I've seen airsofters come in with broken teeth before.

The next piece of advice I can give you is to remember to have FUN. Seems kind of obvious, but in my area there have been some pretty crappy days because of somebody having a bad attitude. Just remember to respect the other players and be honorable, as I think that alone is the biggest sign of a newb; some new players will take a solid hit in the side of the head, flinch, and then turn to shoot back at the person, so that type of thing can be really frustrating.

Lastly, try to pay attention to what other players are doing(example: if they're shooting out of a doorway make sure they know you're going to pass in front of them) and if you have questions about stuff I'm sure that the experienced players will be happy to help you out, since I've rarely seen people refuse to help a new player learn.

Good luck, and have fun!

Like gcw and pickle said, just stay safe, follow the rules from the staff, and have one heck of a time! :tsuki:
I just went to my first ever snow game last month and it was a blast!

If you get captured, do NOT talk. I don't care how many times they cover your face with cloth and pour water on it.

Hey guys,  thought I'd update.  I went yesterday.  Over all I thought is was alright,  but not great.  There was about 50 people there.  Ranged from vets to completely new. Surprising how many people don't call their hits.  There were so many it kind of ruined it.  My gun was performing poorly the first couple of games.  I swapped in a new nub and it was a little better.  I don't know if my gun performing poorly was the reason or what.  I'll go back before I decide I don't like this field,  but there a couple more pretty close to try.
