    Being new here, I don't know how the club deals with things like "club gear". Despite my ignorance, I have a suggestion.

    Does ATA have or could they get some form of team ID markers/armbands?
    In the few games I have attended with you crazy lot, the biggest problem I've had is being able to tell friend from foe. It's mostly OK for those of you who have been here longer, because you know everyone else and can readily ID them on sight. It's not that easy for newer players. New players quite predictably hold their fire until they work out who's who. Or, they treat EVERYONE as a target.
    In either case, noobs usually lose or shoot the wrong guy. And I don't like team kills all that much.
    Not all games would benefit from the use of armbands, but when everyone is toting guns it would be quite beneficial to know that the guy you're aiming at is in fact not on your team.

    Good idea, was thinking coloured rags or something. Whatever it is, make it bright and easy to see, and make everyone wear it on their off hand. (so if you're a righty, wear it on your left)

    Bright red and blue duct tape would be worth it... so long as the teams stayed as such for a little bit. otherwise it will get expensive. Also playing 2-3 games together with the same people is a good way of gettign to know each other

    That could work. Was originally thinking of something that would be re-usable, like coloured cloth with velcro. I have heaps of red cloth at home and velcro is relatively cheap. Might see what I can come up with...

    Only one team really needs the armbands, also a handy way of marking out a VIP in some games too

    Chris tried the duck tape idea a while ago. Actually worked really well.
