BY-LAWS
OF
SOUTHERN CEBU AIRSOFT RECON
(S.C.A.R.)

ARTICLE 1
ORGANIZATION CHARTER

The Southern Cebu Airsoft Recon, also referred to by its acronym S.C.A.R.., is declared a not-for-profit mutual benefit team. This team is open to all airsoft enthusiasts for membership and operates under a 5-person Board of Directors, with a tiered membership structure consisting of Full Members, Associate Members, and invited guests.

The Southern Cebu Airsoft Recon conducts its principal activities within the greater Minglanilla and Naga Cebu area. This team has been able to secure all its playing fields on privately owned land, for the playing use of its members and its guests. These locations are well maintained and range in size from 5 acres to 100 acres of wooded landscape. Each location was chosen for the unique and special qualities it offers for superior airsoft play.

S.C.A.R. was originally established as a means to provide a safe environment for airsoft enthusiasts to play. Charter members of this team shared a similar frustration and concern over safety regarding airsoft activities in public lands. From this frustration and concern came the idea to seek out and secure privately owned locations, free from anxieties over accidents between airsoft players and game-hunters, public hikers, or armed rangers and law enforcement officers. The members of S.C.A.R., and their guests, are in a unique situation of being able to play, unhindered and freely, entirely on private property. Aside from a common interest in airsoft, S.C.A.R. members also share a strong reverence and respect for nature, as well as a deep fondness of the outdoor lifestyle.

While the Southern Cebu Airsoft Recon team welcomes all airsoft enthusiasts regardless of sex, ethnicity, religion, and political affiliation to join in S.C.A.R. activities, guest participation in team activities is structured exclusively as an “invitation only” policy. This is due to the team’s policy of using only private land for airsoft activities. Since the team’s arrangement with all the property owners has been one involving no required fees or gratuities, the charter members chose to repay the owners’ graciousness by ensuring the conduct and behavior of all participants. It is, therefore, a team policy that all members be held responsible and liable, both for their actions, as well as the actions of any guests.

The main purpose of this team is to provide a safe and comfortable venue for airsoft enthusiasts to develop leadership skills; and, foster the sense of teamwork and responsibility through application of military and special operations tactics for airsoft play. With the establishment of this team, airsoft enthusiasts have the opportunity to enjoy the company and comradery of other airsoft enthusiasts in a safe and secure environment.

ARTICLE 2

ARTICLE 8
SAFETY GUIDELINES

8.1 RULES AND POLICIES DURING GAMES: Although airsoft guns operate on completely different principles from real firearms and not lethal, it is still imperative that rules and policies should be followed. To prevent injuries in the field, there are common safety issues used and they are the following:
• A player or who ever wants to be a member of team S.C.A.R. should be 18 yrs. old and above.
• All players should wear complete airsoft gears specially the face mask and eye protection during the game at all times.
• The firepower limit for assault rifles should be around 300 to 350 f.p.s. indoors and 350 to 450 f.p.s. outdoors. Snipers should limit their firepower around 550-600 f.p.s. outdoors but in a far distance. The necessities are used to prevent breaking skin, causing severe injury to the players.
• Airsoft is a game of honesty. If you are struck by a BB you are considered “killed”. Hits to your weapons are not kills. Once you are killed you must call yourself out and walk to the safe zone where you will wait until the next game. Make sure to raise your weapon over your head and yell out “HIT” so that you don’t receive more fire.
• Always point the gun away from anything and everything that is not intended to be shot.
• Always be sure of the target and what is behind it.
• Keep fingers away from the trigger and outside the trigger guard until ready to play.
• Leave guns set to safety position when they are not shooting.
• An airsoft gun should not be displayed in public.
• Place the red cap on barrel end when not in use.
• Unload the airsoft gun by removing the magazine and firing to a safe location until empty.
• Render the gun inoperable by removing and storing the battery away from the gun.
• Place the gun inside a gun case that fully encloses it. Make sure the gun case is locked, tied or zipped in a way that it will not open during transportation or while stored.
• Always lock all your airsoft gear in a safe place.
• Treat all guns as if they are loaded and ready to fire.

ARTICLE 9
AMENDMENTS

9.1 PROCEDURE: These By-Laws may be amended by the Committee/Board in one of two of the following methods. Amendments may be considered by the Committee/Board of Directors after approval by majority vote in a meeting by a majority quorum of the club membership, or direct adoption by the Committee/Board of Directors after a unanimous vote of the Committee/Board of Directors.

9.2 RECORDS OF AMENDMENTS: Whenever an amendment or a new By-Law is adopted, it shall be added in the appropriate place in the organization’s meeting records. If any new By-Law repeals any portion of these original By-Laws, either the date of the meeting at which the By-Laws or portion thereof was repealed or the date written consent was filed with the Committee/Board shall be stated therein.
