Hi guys, Interburger and I are planning a Hurtgen forest event for October on my property at 141 Reynolds Road Essex, New York. I would like to find out from the community what date would work best for people. The 3rd weekend in October is out as Inster has work that weekend. We could try for Columbus Day weekend or go later into the month. Even November would work if it is not too close to Thanksgiving. September is out because of a possible game that Raimund may do and Operation Woodsman is happening that month which I would like to go to. The Battle of the Hurtgen started in Sept of 44 and didn't end until spring of 45 so any weekend throughout the fall after September would be good. The later the better in some ways, it will give me more time to get the field ready. Also, If anyone wants to help with clearing roads and trails and building defenses, let me know, I would love the help and may be we could do a WW2AA work weekend. I have 12 acres of forested land that I have been cutting trails on and it is ready to start building defenses. I will post complete details and a map when we decide on a official date for the event. It will be a camping event, arrive on Friday night and play until Sunday afternoon.
I will not be putting on this event this fall. I have too many other commitments at home before doing a full scale event right now. Also lack of interest or response from the community makes me not want to take the risk of putting time into this event. Hopefully someone else will do something here in the NE this fall. Sorry.
sorry to hear your not gonna have one this fall. As for the lack of response on the boards, it's been my experience when hosting events to pick a date that works for the host first and go from there. You can also use the polling feature. Perhaps that will work better the next time around.
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.

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.
