Individuals/groups who desire a more intelligent, challenging and realistic level of participation and interaction than the standard Airsoft event provides. Participants must be positive, motivated and objective oriented. Participants must be at least 13 years of age.
Natural Selection 2008 will be an 8 hour Military Combat Simulation occurring over the course of one day. All participants will sign up to be on one of three opposing paramilitary elements, designated as Element 2, Element 4 and Element 6. One Commanding Officer (CO) and one Executive Officer (XO) position are available on each team and will be filled on a voluntary, first registered, first served basis. All elements will be tasked with achieving various objectives and maintaining them until the end of the operation. Unlike our "standard Airsoft" events, element leadership will be given both strategic and tactical command. Elements themselves will decide how victory will best be achieved within the bounds of the rules of engagement. Also unlike our our "standard Airsoft" events, EAG Combat Simulations’ (EAG) staff and members of EAG's home team (ESOG) will not be acting as advisors to the elements, but will continue to act as observers/controllers through their participation in the operation as simulation support. It should be stressed that while (EAG) staff and ESOG members may be operating with or against an element at any given time during the operation, these individuals are not competing to achieve objective points. These individuals are strictly simulation support, their role is solely enhancement of the simulation and they are not eligible to win any awards or prizes associated with the simulation. Other special operational components include:
Natural Selection 2008 will be presented Saturday, 21 June, 2008, 8:00 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.
All participants are encouraged to arrive as early as Friday evening, to in process and meet informally with their element. Element leaders are required to do so. All participants are also invited to stay for open play on Sunday.

Due to popularity of our simulations and size constraints, EAG Combat Simulations is accepting a limited number of participants for Natural Selection 2008. Once these limits have been reached, all other funds received will be returned to the sender. In an attempt to decrease the amount of time it takes to get things started on the morning of the simulation, we are streamlining the registration hour. As a result; the full registration fee is required AT LEAST 2 weeks in advance (07 June 2008) of the simulation date to reserve a spot on the field. Individuals who pay the full registration fee but are later unable to attend the simulation will be issued a 50% refund only if notice is given prior to 2 weeks in advance of the simulation date. The remaining 50% of the registration fee is non-refundable. Interested parties may register by reading the simulation information, filling out the simulation registration form and paying the registration fee. We accept cash, money orders, personal checks. We accept credit cards and online funds transfers through Pay Pal online payment service. We no longer offer charge accounts.
Natural Selection 2008 will take place regardless of weather conditions and/or turn out. To find out more about EAG Combat Simulations, visit our web site at: www.eaghq.com.
