I went to this event last year, and it was a great time. Looking forward to it this year! -MIRV
Airsoft based Zombie Hunt ~ Oct. 11th
October 11th, Ghost Walkers & Company is presenting a night of Zombie hunting, killing and if you're good enough, survival. For those of you who've watched all those Romero's movies and thought, "I wouldn't have gotten killed doing that, I could have made it thru the night"; here's your chance to prove it.
The Zombie adventures will begin at sundown. Now these aren't "28 Days Later" or "Dawn of the Dead" zombies, these are old school, rambling, kill by sheer numbers, one shot to the head to kill Zombies. And while we might start one or two scenarios ala Dog Soldiers, it all usually comes down to a couple of pistols, maybe a shotgun, and a handful of ammo to make it to safety.
To this end, most of the night action will be limited to springer weapons. Weapons used in the zombie games will be limited to less than 325fps with .20gms. Standard ammo is acceptable (i.e. biodegradable are not required at this site).
The game will take place at the Weckoski Farm in Coal Center, PA.
330 Grange Rd
Coal Center, PA
Also, DarkThreads (http://www.darkthreads.com/) will be vending for the event. We'll be selling guns, gear and ammo on site. We will also be raffling off a brand new UTG Multishot shotgun! Keep in mind that you will need to be 18 or older to participate in the raffle or purchase guns from DarkThreads.
Some additional talking points:
- Check-in for the Zombie Hunt will start at 4PM and skirmishing started by 5. Player enthusiasim and weather will determine how late we play but say 11PM for now?
- Everyone will have to play a zombie at least once.
- Facemasks are strongly encouraged (face and crotch shots increase dramatically in night CQB)
- We're requesting that players dress in anything other than camouflage BDU, black is OK if you anticipate playing a zombie a lot.
- Horror masks and any other Halloween props & costumes are STRONGLY encouraged.
- Price: $3
So, care to test your nerve hunting Zombies at night with 25 rounds of ammo and spring pistol?
