Club management committee

Western Australia Airsoft and Gel Ball Club Inc. is an incorporated association in accordance with the Associations Incorporation Act 2015 and is managed by an elected committee.

The current committee is made up of the following members:

Laurentiu Zamfirescu

LZ

Position(s) held:

  • Co-founder
  • Chair (2021 – present)
  • Treasurer (2020 – present)
  • Secretary (2017 – 2020)

Bio:

Laurentiu ‘s passion for shooting sports starts after he was introduced to paintball. He soon started a rental business to “feed his addiction”. Airsoft soon became popular in his home country, Romania, which saw him sell the business and enjoyed playing Airsoft for over 5 years.

His migration to Australia unfortunately saw his passion abruptly ended. He missed the friendships he established through Airsoft and decided to do something about it. Together with Mark Mildenhall he established the Club and has put in tireless hours into legalizing the sport and managing the Club. He started the lobbying journey on the premise that he would learn some interesting, useful life skills along the way, which has proven true.

Laurentiu enjoys hiking and camping and during his day-to-day life he works as a consulting risk and safety engineer.

Tyler’s interest started with paintball in his youth. After playing paintball for a few years, he discovered the sport of Airsoft. Disappointed when he learned the sport was illegal in Australia he continued with paintball.

He was then given the opportunity to finally play Airsoft while on a holiday overseas. Tyler was immediately hooked to the game. Upon returning home he eventually discovered the Club and joined in 2019.

Tyler soon joined the WA Gelsoft community and started work on helping out advancing and safeguarding TagSoft sports in WA.
