The large Safe Zone is adjacent to the field sheltered by the ridges from the wind. We anticipate having a rustic toilet facility available as well as catering at the game.

- Bush warfare terrain, urban CQB, and plenty more.
- This field is bottleneck-free with so many features and there is always a way around. Flanking options always available.
- This is a tactical teamplay field - Radios are essential.
