All good points, but there are several things to consider. Hard to say if ALL players will be able to camp out on Saturday night. Piper will be assisting me with registrations on Sunday morning as I will be immersed in the AO with my fellow jumpers.
But even if all players were to arrive Saturday night, we have to remember that it will be a Sunday and waking up the whole town at 6:30AM to REAL MG-42 fire is probably not the smartest thing in the world to do. Lester has told me that we will not have any problems with the blank fire guns, but not at 6:30 in the AM on a Sunday!
As for the lights, Lester has told me that Village construction is on going and will hopefully be done by June 4th. As for walking in the dark, all players have been instructed to bring flashlights, etc. The Germans should be OK as their positions will be fixed and they can have camp fires, etc as they did not know we were coming. As for the Airborne, we look forward to the cover of darkness!
Yes c'mon guys get those registrations in so we will have a decent assault force on that Higgins boat I do not want to hit Omaha beach with three guys and face all those Germans with their M G's screaming at us
Just ordered my issue of take aim airsoft. The first installment of our "Call to arms series" was mentioned in it along with the AAR for it. If you cant get it locally you can buy it with paypal and the shipping is free! Ask for it at your local Barnes & Noble, tell 'em you want it!
Well it's D-day minus 15 and we are in the final phase of our organization and planning for this event. I'm happy to report that everything is coming together quite well and we are right on schedule.
I just felt it necessary to remind everyone of a couple of points/preparations that everyone should be made aware of.
1) It is strongly recommended that everyone participating in the night mission have a period flashlight. While the Germans will mostly be sleeping at their posts, completely unaware that their fate and positions will be vanquished by end of day, they too should have flashlights with them. All Airborne and French Resistance fighters must have period flashlights with them. Safety first everyone! We do plan on having adequate lighting in the AO, but it is impossible to illuminate the entire 62 acres.
Please see link:http://www.whatpriceglory.com/shopexd.asp?id=817&bc=no
3) It is also recommended that you bring with you adequate rations for this event. You can find rations for both German and Allied at: reprorations.com/index.htm
4) It is also recommended that everyone carry w/ them either a FRS radio or a whistle. In case of injury, we want you to be able to notify us. Remember, we will be in the dark and you never know. If you carry an FRS radio and are not a CO or event coordinator, you can keep it off unless in case of an emergency. Hope everyone understands the importance of this. More on this at the safety briefing.
So in two weeks time we will all be gearing up for our premier event, I hope you all are as pumped up and excited as I know I am. All of us working behind the scenes are putting in the extra effort to make this an unforgettable experience and something we will all fondly remember. Any critique/suggestions are always welcomed as it is not too late to adjust. But I feel we are firing on all cylinders and are ready to go.
I am hopeful that we can get a few more registrations in and especially add to our Seaborne Infantry count. Pass the word Gents.
On a separate note, I have noticed that some have stated on the facebook page they will be attending, but I have not received their registration. It is very important that all who are planning to attend register.
The following have stated on facebook but have not registered with me. If I do list your name in error, please forgive my mistake and PM me. I am not familiar with everyone's call sign/alias yet.

So once again, I need your registration information.
Thank you for your cooperation, Migs

Hello Everyone, Please go to the following link to download the GZA waiver form. If you can print and fill this out prior to your arrival at the event, it will make your registration go a lot smoothly.
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.
Jun 16, 2018 16:29:26 GMT -5
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.
Jun 16, 2018 16:33:32 GMT -5
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.
