Hi Ukie, and welcome!
1.This is the best place for posts and goings on.
2. You can follow the Battleday schedule in the Forum here and you will see other info of things happening.
3. Yes, airsoft can be converted to IR. Most of the regulars in the club can do conversions. Just depends on what you want to spend! LOL! Primarily you will not be able to use the stock electronics and will require an upgraded board of which there are several to choose from. We will soon be having Class A certified tanks and then just open class. It's a bit of a long explanation but if you come out to one of our meets we can review everything for you.
4. Just post things here so we all can answer!
