Again this year this event will occur and I am hoping some folks commit to this and post that they are coming below if unable to on Facebook or the MOA site. I'll talley a list of attendee after 6 August. Here is the information.

Fort McCoy 2015 Cancelled.
Primary reason is weather. The forecast calls for clear skies, bright sunlight and nineties temperatures. That's ridiculously hot and not conducive to safe play. Furthermore, interest in the event doesn't warrant the cost in time and money in our view of transporting vehicles and equipment. I apologize to those few who looked forward to attending but the interest just isn't there.
Attendance list for this event which was confirmed "I'm coming responses" is:
Franz Otto Wolfgang Matthias Fritz Dark Zero
Andre Boris Cpl Mills
To be fair there were several others that expressed an interest but we had no promises. That makes maybe 10-12 players in all assuming no cancellations which with the impending forecast is pretty unlikely.
We also looked into the possibility of a venue change to Crane Lake where the temperatures are going to be mid-80's and accommodations are more readily available. Also, the 222 armored car would be in play though not painted yet. But on such short notice, this is a poor alternative because it adds driving distance and again, we'd lose folks.
Hopefully this is enough advance notice for attendees to make other plans. We will of course look forward to the next event.
On a positive note, at Iola, we made a connection with a landowner near Steven's Point who is considering sponsoring an October event on his 100+ acres and if anything comes of it we'll share the details.

Steven's Point sounds great! Looking forward to period camping and a fall campfire on 100 acres and room for the armor to really maneuver, for an epic battle. Hopefully the G&G MG42 will be released by then
Dracul: It looks like it lost a lot of steam and I now feel bad for randomly dropping off.

stuka: I mean it's not your fault. It is interesting though that things are falling off as we are finally getting our ww2 guns with the type 38/96 and the enfield as well as it recieving a new loading system, it's kind of unfortunate

Dracul: I don't know, maybe its because all the guns are becoming available, there is a decreasing need for the forums.

Dracul: Most of the talk was about making guns, as all the uniform info was already out there, but now the weapons are out there and are usually decent quality.

stuka: well the forum is and should still be useful for updates on guns, creating groups/events and building kits

Cpl. Hicks: I haven't been here in years, but I'm glad to see this forum is still kicking! So much great info on here.

savoy6: anyone know if anyone still carries the enfield?

Dracul: I think Redwolf has a Enfield. If not or not longer, then not until G&G releases theirs. The old gas Iron Airsoft brand SMLE isn't carried by anyone anymore and was such piece of crap. Not worth trying to track one down.
