Ah yes good point. Also location is important too, I am always sort of on the move and I am sure others might well be dotted around. I know the re-enactment society is very thin hence why not so many regular meetings. I was sort of hoping to get more interest and maybe start somewhere in the middle of England as a location. However if more interest is down South or up North then perhaps the site should be considered in those places.

Don't just make do with a site though, pick a site that fits the game and the feel of the event your going for and then players will travel as they have done for years to attend, and those that won't well...won't

Obviously I wasn't thinking of a game anytime soon, late summer being the soonest really. But no harm in planning this early on.

I think if you look at the calendar its already quite full for events this year.
Don't rush into it planning is the best thing you can do at the moment.
When you have the idea of what you want to do and a time you want to do it then check with the other organisers as a lot of talking and interaction goes on behind the scenes to make sure nobody clashes with other events. I mean it would be soul destroying if you found the perfect site, have an awesome game plan, have talked and booked with the site owner etc. and then when you announce your game you find out another organiser has something booked and both events suffer with numbers attending.

I am not being a harbinger of doom, and would applaud you for putting your efforts in to getting something organised and would be seriously interested in attending. :good:

If you're thinking about a Pacific/Far East game, keep it simple. It's about the mindset of the individual putting themselves in the role. You can add things in terms of props that can add to it, but the more rules you make for such and such a situation, the more it's likely to fold like a deck of cards.

Yes, keep it simple. People will just forget a ton of rules, most players can barely remember ammo limits, medic rules and where there HQ is (well, that certainly applies to me and I'm not even sure about the last one as I have got lost a few times).

You don't even need a ton of props, just enthusiastic organisers who can move the thing along and create the right atmosphere.

Thank you for your kind input.

Does anyone know of any good sites that might have suitable feel for a pacific game, ideally a site with a small woodland trail for something like Kokoda would be nice. I am sort of new to UK airsoft and don't know that many places myself.

I think the Gunman site at Eversley does have this feeling.

Oooh...

Just checked that out... they Eversley site does seem to have the right "look" about it. I know it's a little further out for me but I definitely get there if I had to for a game. I will probably contact them and get some more details maybe in the future. Thanks for this Luiluei does anyone else have experience with the facility? Are there others like it?

I know of a couple of sites in the Midlands but they don't have the "Far East" feel to them, the site at Eversley does definitely have more of a Jungle feel as opposed to a plain valley with a few trenches... which is what I am more familiar with round here.

There was a big game there in March, the dense undergrowth does make for some good ambushes, Stormforce at Rugeley might also be worth a look

I've fired a bullet on every continent. Nearly hit someone, too.

Thank you BootedFeet

Stormforce site also seems to tick a lot of boxes and it's closer to me but it all depends on what others think as well and any other similar sites others may know and would prefer just let us know. I will do my best to try and organise a game in the UK at some point... :D
