Question for anyone who plays in the rain.

Alright so I live in WA where it rains a lot. I went and played one weekend when it rained pretty good and screwed the WAS board up in my 03 viking. I don't know how rain managed to get to the board but it did. Essentially, how do you guys protect your boards from getting water on them? If it helps, i have dye sticky grips on my viking.

Plastic trash bag. Poke a hole for the barrel and tape, poke a hole for feedneck and tape around that. Leave the opening of the baggy at the back so you can slide your hand into it.
Shooting back and forth between L and R hands is where you run into difficulty. As long as your not diving into puddles, this will keep your electronics fairly safe and your ACE from malfunctioning because water got under the eye covers.

An other option is there a product called Conformal Coating. It is use on electronics and it is basically a spray on silicone. It protects the PCB from dust and water. Just have to mask the connectors or else you will not get a proper connection.

Ahh yes I remember having to take care of this. What we used to do was have the board connected to all the eyes, switches etc and then give it a coating of Krylon Crystal Clear. It seals the board and connectors. It can be removed with heat if you need to remove the connectors. It puts a barrier between the water and the electronics. Worked great on Wiseguys guns for many years. We played in pretty much every kind of weather with no problems.
Trying to keep the water out of the tray is nearly impossible due to the layout of the trigger. One dive and it'll flood the tray. We played in some serious weather.
