The next WWII Airsoft event in the North East.
Where: Ground Zero Airsoft, Wolcott, CT.
Sign ups at store: 1254 Wolcott Road, Wolcott, CT
Field location: 243 Wolcott Road, Terryville, CT
When: May 30th-May 31st.
Starting at 10AM Saturday, lasting overnight, ending 5PM Sunday.
Cost: $25 per person (1 Day); $40 per person (Whole Weekend)
This event will be an over night game at GZA. The first day, which starts at 11AM, will be just us WW2 players and then on the second day we will play alongside the GZA regulars. The purpose of this event is to have fun, learn about history, and share our hobby and passion. You must sign in at the store, pay your fee, then head down to the field. We will also be doing a static display, so please bring your tentage/shelter halves/misc. equipment if possible.
We will be staying out overnight so bring everything you would need for a multiple day event. This includes, but is not limited to:
-Water (Preferably in a period correct canteen) ***
-Food (Preferably in period correct packaging) ***
-Shelter (Preferably period correct tenting/shelter halves/zeltbahns) ***
- Extra socks (GZA has swamps, creeks and streams. You may get wet, bring extra socks.)
- Ammo (Bring extra BBs, you'll be swinging double the plastic you normally would. GZA also has some thick foliage, you may need heavy BBs.)
- Extra Uniforms (It's getting hotter as the days go by, you may want to bring heavy weight and light weight uniforms, such as both Wools and HBTs.)
- Extra Weapons (You're Thompson or MP40 may break down or die out, bring extra firearms.)
- Friends (Or strangers, I don't discriminate. Seriously though, we want to expand this hobby, bring those that may be interested. Some of us are bringing extra weapons and kit, more about that below.)
***: These requirements do not need to be period correct to attend and participate. These are essential to your survive, but like said, it is preferred to have them be authentic.
Uniform Requirements: This is a late war scenario, so 1944-1945. So long as your kit/impression is accurate, it can consist of anything from 1944-45. We want this event to be fun and raise interest in our hobby. I'm not going to go around and say M1938 leggings and service shoes aren't accurate (That's what I'll be wearing), or that fixed bale M1s aren't accurate. So long as it existed and was used between 44-45 it's okay to use.
Weapon Requirements: It must be WWII. Please no unmodified M14s acting as Garands.
Loaning Uniforms and Gear:
Like said previously, I highly recommend bringing extra weapons, uniforms, and equipment. I myself will be, as I have a few friends, who are without kit, that are interested. This way we can fully equip any converts or walk-ons who'd like to get a better understanding on what it's like to play WWII Airsoft. I will also try to organize who lends what and from who, however, it is up to the loaner to remember their equipment. If you need a piece of kit, contact me, or one of the guys on our event Facebook page (www.facebook.com/groups/1078741172153134/) , we might be able to work something out.
Field Rules: Guns over 400 FPS have a minimum engagement rule (I'll figure out what that is.)
Guns over 500 FPS may not be allowed (I'll get back to you on that, I may be wrong.)
Those under 18 must wear full face protection (Mesh Mask, Full Seal Goggles/Paintball style Mask)
Those 18 and older just need Full Seal Eye Protection.
*GZA has rental masks and mesh masks and goggles for sale if needed.
