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
CPL. Mills 2nd Rangers: HIKI is good if your on a budget. The uniforms are cheap, and that will be pretty obvious when you get your hands on it. The sizing is off, might want to order one size up from what you wear. I bought pants from them, I needed to get 2x my normal size

derriese: Hello everyone! Did anyone of you guys bought equipment or tunics from HikiShop? I want to get the m32 tunic (for cosplaying as a Nazi Zombie), but the price seems very low ($45)and I'm afraid I'm going to get scammed .

CPL. Mills 2nd Rangers: Hiki Shop quality is passable, there are better quality out there but if you want to through together an impression quick and on the cheap they are the way to go. I bought my Heer pants from them.

suomifinn: Hikishop is legit. I use them for my Finnish impression. Some of the stuff can be off in terms of accuracy, easily fixable though. For the price it's hard to beat. Great for more obscure countries.
