After action report
Following a lot of tough fighting the German forces finally a
Captured the fuel depot. The allied forces fought very hard to stop the German steamroller.
The battles were a real grenade fest with plenty of close up fighting.
I would like to thank all the participants of this game, it was played fairly and with good spirit. I hope every one enjoyed themselves.
We at close action look forward to hosting another game in the new year.
I would welcome any feedback here to improve things even more next time.
Thanks for a great day, really liked the battle for the farm. I have never used so many grenades.
Would of liked a 30 mins break to recover from all that walking and have some food.
Awesome day Tony, thanks for all of the effort you and the Close Action guys put it. we really enjoyed the battles , the US guys put up a great fight even though they were outnumbered. Assaulting a building across an open field seemed a good idea until we all lay in a heap!
Thank you close action for this game and all airsofters, had one of my best days airsofting, shot lots of germans, very high standard of game play.....mark (101st guy with rubber bayonet) spot on !! My lad Jacob, enjoyed being a medic he also had great day......same again please
Any pics ???
Had a good day today, really enjoyed how well the site worked! The mass charge was stunning and gave me a few seconds pause to admire the spectacle before i began the business of hosing you down. Made a novel change to be on the defensive although lugging the kit from place to place nearly had me on my knees near the end!
Would definitely go again and thanks for the effort the organisers put in.
Those hand made grenades are impressive. We need an hand cart per side to lug all our gear around, I am so tired now.
You are not alone in that feeling Matt!
sorry for all the lugging around...its a big site.
ill get pics up tomorrow
Sounds great and sorry to have missed it. Glad you all had a good time and hope to make it to the next one.

A great big thanks to all , thanks to close action for a good day ,hopefully my hip will be sorted out next time but I am an old git though lol ,thanks to the guy's that help hump my backpack great bunch loved every minute especially the farm house straight out of ww2 scene ,
Well the dust has settled and my hearing has now come back! Good site with lots of potential and it certainly was a good day to be out in the woods reppeling German waves of attackers. The 34th seemed to bear the brunt of the war damage, bloodied noses and all. Quite a unique day. Was a good day and great fun.
Looking forward to seeing all the photos, and good to meet some new entrants to the hobby.

Thanks for organising it Seg. Good, fun game on a brilliant site.
See you at the next one!

Sniper Bb between the eyes in the last 5 minutes of the game, pout me on my arse and my head next to an enemy grenade...
Still,i had laughed at Jed and Snip's 'Rudolph' injuries earlier. There's a moral here somewhere...
Cheers guys for feedback. Intense fun indeed.
I've been busy at work but will get pics up ASAP. Also will look to calendar in another game very soon.
Some of the newbies are now converted.
Really enjoyed myself, big thanks to all involved. Will make sure I sort my rifle out before the game starts next time, might actually hit something that way!
Wake up there, Muttley, you're dreaming again!
You're not Robin Hood and you're not Gunga Din.
You're not a brave knight or a king who's been crowned;
You're just plain old Muttley, the snickering hound!
I would prefer the number of snipers to be limited to one per section next time, we did receive a lot of painful face hits, it was the bloodiest game I have ever played. Fortunately my good looks remained intact.
Looking forward to seeing the pics
Sorry for delay in pics. But as a secondary school deputy head I have been busy this last week of term. I will sort out over weekend, got a camera full of them
