When the First Round is over, TEAMS SWITCH SIDES for the Second Round.
Rounds are timed at 20 minutes.

PAINT CHECKS...
You may call a PAINT CHECK on yourself or another player.
Call A REFEREE for a Paint Check.
Be Specific so the "REF" knows where to go.
Examples:
REF! PAINT CHECK ME!...
REF! PAINT CHECK the guy behind the truck!...
REF! PAINT CHECK the guy behind the blue barrel!...
Its not impolite to also "point" in the direction you'd like a paint check to happen.
If you need a paint check for yourself...
STAY IN PLACE and call the referee to you.
Don't walk across the field to the referee and ask if you're out. The Ref will say, yes, you're out.
NO ADVANCING ON or SHOOTING AT a player under a PAINT CHECK.

GIVE UPS...
If you are shot and holler, "I'm OUT!"... You are out...
There is no going back.
When in doubt, call for a paint check.

Paintballs Must HIT & BREAK for you to be OUT.
A HIT & BREAK on your MARKER, your PERSON, or ANY of your EQUIPMENT is an OUT.
If the Paintballs BOUNCE OFF without breaking, you are OK.
Splatter Doesn't Matter.

* MARKERS MUST Chronograpgh at 270 feet per second, or less *
* SEMI AUTO ONLY * NO FULL AUTO * NO BURSTS * NO RAMPING * NO TRIGGER BOUNCE *

Call a "SAFETY" Within 20 FEET
Gently inform the opposing player that you request their SURRENDER.
That they "GIVE UP".
We REQUIRE you to call out the word "SAFETY", or words "GIVE UP", and allow opposing players to SURRENDER at the too-close range of 20 feet or less.
This rule is in effect for all bunkering situations!
If you are running up to a bunker and get within 20 feet of it, you must call out a "SAFETY" before shooting at it, or anyone inside it!

Friendly fire is an OUT.
If you are OUT, put your barrel cover ON, hold your marker UP, move OFF the field.

Dead Men Don't Talk...
If you are OUT you must cease communication with players still in the game.

DON'T BE TOO AGGRESSIVE WITH THE YOUNGSTERS.
