    UPDATE: From September 22nd:

    The announcement has been made clear that new cases of COVID-19 infection is on the rise.
    Further restrictions have been put in place to slow the spread and save the NHS.
    We support Government Guidelines and have introduced further measures to comply.

    Changes & existing rules:

    Pre-Book ONLY - NO visitors or walk on players.
    Non-Contact Temperature checks will be taken when you arrive.
    Track & Trace Poster is available at each Site.
    Please download the App & Scan on arrival.
    Face Coverings MUST be worn inside any structure/building in the Safe Zone. No Mask? NO ENTRY.
    Site Specific rules are also explained in the Morning Safety Brief.
    Maximum of 6 people at a time on the Chronograph/Shooting Range area (including Staff)
    Maximum of 6 people for any group booking (only Socialize with your group of 6)
    Keep a 2 Meter distance from other people and no less than 1 Meter if 2 Meters isn't possible.
    Please wear Face Coverings whenever possible even when outside for extra safety.
    Do not book in or turn up to any Event if you or a Family Member are displaying COVID related Symptoms.
    Your details will be taken and held for a minimum of 21 days.

    The restrictions in place will inevitably slow the start of the day down, however, it will enforce a safer Event.
    We have already lowered the Player Count on Site and will continue to monitor this and adjust as required.
    If we ALL cooperate as a community, we can still enjoy the Sport & keep each other SAFE.
    Best Wishes,
    R.I.F.T. HQ.

    Fantastic EPIC
    REDCON-2 Weekender!
    We cannot thank EVERYONE enough for making this Weekend Event one of the VERY BEST Airsoft experiences we have ever had!
    The HEAT was almost too much - but everyone got stuck in and took breaks when needed..... Lots of Ice Creams!!! (Good Idea Hazel!)

    I also need to mention how BRILLIANT the R.I.F.T. Marshal Team are.
    They had NO CHOICE to hide from the Sun! They stayed out in the 30 degree heat from beginning to end to ensure everyone was safe and enjoying the day! Legends!

    X-RAY Team were also constantly under pressure with relentless attack after attack! They tried hard to find a balance for everyone to enjoy and the feedback from their performance was amazing! Big Hugs to those guys, thank you ALL so much!

    The Evening Football Game was Fun!
    Marshals V Campers! I wonder who WON?

    Thanks also for my Birthday Wishes - I must admit, I will NEVER forget this EPIC Weekend as it was also part of my 50th Birthday!

    So, enough said, here are the Photos! Enjoy!

    See you all real soon!

    Hello all!
    As promised, we are pleased to announce the upgrades to R.I.F.T. Airsoft Membership!
    The Covid-19 situation as highlighted how loyal and important our Members are to us. Thank you ALL so much!
    Most regulars to our Sites are already Members and many players join after just a few Games because they enjoy it so much!
    We do have a “Membership App” in the pipeline (it is well overdue) and we are constantly thinking of ways we can improve on everything we do. The App will streamline everything even further.
    One thing that is lacking is Membership Renewal Reminders. Lots of players forget when it is due, lose their Member Card or do not collect them to start with!
    So, to simplify our renewal dates we have split the Year in Two:
    JUNE (Blue Card) & DECEMBER (Red Card)
    Only Two Months of the Year for Renewals – it is easy for everyone to remember!

    If you purchased Membership FROM JAN-APRIL 2020 - your Membership is now due in JUNE 2021.
    If you purchased Membership during MAY 2020 onwards – your Membership is due in DECEMBER 2021.
    If you Purchased Membership in 2019, then now is a perfect time to RENEW to receive your Membership extension to DECEMBER 2021
    If it has already expired, NOW is a VERY good time to renew! Everyone gets several Month(s) extra for FREE!


    (UKARA runs for 12 Months – when you get a reminder that it is due to expire, we will extend it to meet your Membership Expiry Month)

    Unfortunately, due to the impact Covid-19 has had to our business, we will be increasing the Game Fee from £25 to £30. Loyalty is very much appreciated and for this reason, all up to date Rift Airsoft Members will be exempt from any increase in Game Fees.
    We foresee a negative impact for many months to come.
    Up to date R.I.F.T. Airsoft Members will NOT pay any extra and their Game Fee will remain the same.
    (So, Members still pay £25 instead of £30!)
    This offer is for our standard Skirmish Games only. Zombie/Sim/Special Events will be the same block price for all.
    Please be reminded:
    Another addition to the NEW Membership Cards will be your UKARA Number. Although your Photo is not present, it still confirms your Full Name, R.I.F.T. Member Number & UKARA Number for quick reference.
    This is a handy feature! Membership Cards will now be Posted by request.

    R.I.F.T. Airsoft has always discounted the most used commodity on Site: Ammunition!
    We will continue to offer discount to all members on .20g & .25g bb’s.
    COMBAT-UK (onlyairsoft.com) provide an exceptional service in regards to Sale of RIFs, Accessories & Personal Equipment and they continue to support R.I.F.T. Airsoft Members with 10% Discount on almost all of the products they sell! Their information can be found on the reverse of your Membership Card. Airsoft Monkey – Tech, Upgrades & Repairs also offer an outstanding service and always look after Players on Game Days whenever possible.

    So, to sum up Our Improved Rift Airsoft Membership:

    .. Simplified Renewal Months (Blue = JUNERed = DECEMBER)
    1. £5 off Game Fee.
    2. Extended Membership period.
    3. 10% Discount with Combat-UK (onlyairsoft.com)
    4. UKARA status maintained & implemented.
    5. Discount on .20g & .25g bb’s.
    6. Priority Booking for Special Events (subject to T’s & C’s)
    7. Membership Cards will be posted directly to you once purchased or renewed.

    Checking if your Membership is active is easy, please email Tony: tony@riftairsoft.com

    Other R.I.F.T. Airsoft News:
    We are planning to reopen again on the first Weekend in July!
    Some Airsoft Sites have reopened already and others are opening at the end of June, however, just to follow a more cautious route, we are planning to open in July.
    Government Guidelines are still important to us, regardless of the fact most people are doing their own thing!
    The first Event planned will be a 2 Day Event at Coms Site 3. Unlike our usual weekend Events, we will be treating the weekend as TWO seperate Game Days
    (no Camping at this time)
    We will have to limit the numbers and ensure that everyone follows the standard social distancing practice & keep themselves away from people they did not travel with. We will also have to add lots of other rules and change the format of the weekend accordingly.
    All relevant information will be released on our Booking Page.
    Due to limited Numbers, we will need to confirm 100% attendance.
    In the past we always had lots of players book in and not show up on the day. Unfortunately, we will not be able to continue this way, so, we will have to implement “Pre-Pay” for the time being. Using this method will be easy – simply book in and Pay through the Booking Page. If you cannot make the Event, let us know and we will transfer your place to another player or hold it in credit for you. This system will be short term but essential for us when we reopen.
    July’s roadmap looks good (still subject to confirmation) 4 Weekend Events at Coms Site 3, Single Sunday Events at REDCON-2 & the RIDGE plus VILLAGE dates to be added!

    Chipping Warden, Coms Site 3:
    High Speed Rail (HS2) is still going ahead (even though the Government is WAY in debt) however, they still seem to have the 108 Billion to build a Railway! So… there will be major disruption on site before the end of the year.
    HS2 will need to take our Safezone and the area leading to & including the Grasslands.
    As we are all aware, no Safezone = no Games! So, we are in the process for Planning to build a NEW Safezone on the opposite side of the Land near the Kill House Building.
    Our advice is to play as much at Coms 3 as you can before HS2 take the Land & disruption starts!
    Sadly, there will be no Birthday Game this year at Coms Site 3. This Event is VERY much a BIG Social Event – Sorry!

    Abingdon, REDCON-2:
    Unfortunately, we had to cancel the Epic “Shift Your Rifts” Event.
    Over 800 people were Booked in over the 2 Days!!! It really hurt to close the Booking and announce that it was no longer going ahead. We have contacted the MOD and asked for next MAY Bank Holiday to run the Event again!
    Fingers crossed it will go ahead! We ARE running at least one Game every Month and a Weekend Event in August! This Event will also allow you to Camp Over: STRICT Rules will apply - all subject to conditions & guidelines of course.....

    (nr Luton) The RIDGE:
    We are back at The Ridge on the 26th of July! The owners have been busy and created a new FLAT Car Park for us to use! It’s always been a Great Site but the Car Park was poor. Cant; wait to get back there!
    2 Games planned there in August!

    (Royston) The Village:
    DATES are now available!
    First & Third Sunday of the Month with a few Wednesday Eve thrown in for good measure! (see dates to the right)

    (Andover) The Bomb Dump:
    The MOD have offered us an extended contract!
    We will be running Games on the FIRST Sunday of the Month starting from September 2020

    New Ammo!
    We have also been chatting with the Guys at Valkyrie! The NEW range of BB’s that have certainly made a very positive impression so far! Testing their Ammunition, we have been very surprised with the consistency and accuracy! If you would like to try them please send them a message! https://www.facebook.com/Valkyrie-Ai...00407774917638 they will send you a sample pack for you to try! We will have them in stock too!

    Combat-UK/ Onlyairsoft.com:
    The Guys at Combat-UK have now reopened their Stevenage shops!
    They have been working hard behind the scenes to make sure everything is ready for you! For time being, they will not be running their On Site Shop as usual. If you need anything bringing to any Rift Site, please contact them via their Website Chat System & they will arrange it:
    Onlyairsoft.com Website
    I would like to take this opportunity to thank then for their support & look forward to seeing them all soon!

    So, for now, that’s a little breakdown of what is going on at the moment.
    We miss you all and hope VERY MUCH to see you all again in July!
    ~Tony Rift Airsoft.

    Battery Charger Input Lead

    Thread Starter: Jase

    Good Afternoon, I have recently brought a battery charger (Vista Power EV-650) and it has not come with a DC power lead so I have no way using it...
