I just have to give all you guys that came a big thankyou ,

for ourstanding play in some serious heat, and was nice to see squads stick together so well , also was nice to see some old faces back playing :)

Many thanks for keeping the site clean and clearing up the rubbish etc :) it does help us maintain a great relationship with the site , so much so , they want us to run another next year, rather than us try to wear them down to let us lol , but i have to destress and relax a bit before we decide on that :)

A big thank you to all the squad leaders with a couple having to step up/nominated late ;) , feel free to pm any good stories incidents that happened like the Zug leader (matt) that threw a grenade hit a tree and bounced back on him :) (pure 34th lol) though i only blew 1 of my squad up all weekend :)

Big thanks to Mr "Firework" that the use of his tent to help host the social saturday night etc :)

Super Big thanks to Peter for donating all the fruit and goodies for folks , that melon yesterday was top draw :)

i cant forget to thank Mr "if i was going to be anal about it " for getting the star wars game, which seemed to go on way after he had set off back to london and i was eating pizza cooked on the bbq :) was a amausing game with next to know light , will plan it better next year (if there is one ;) )

and lastly and the biggest thanks to all those that helped sat morning get out the zillion props i tend to use and bring them back in sunday when they were shattered , will write more when i have more strength and back to at least 50% brain power :)

Ps thanks and a big kiss to all those that i have forgot to thank :)

Not at all! The games were perfect today, I had to shoot at 3:30 anyway so didn't want a full day in that sense was nice to blow the cob webs off and test the beretta there were a few germans that carried on and had a few battles between our selfs after lunch to finish the day off :D

Unfortunately I could only play on Saturday, but was a really good day - BIG thanks to the 34th lads for hosting a really well run event that seemed to flow very well. The site was excellent and I thought the idea of having the squads picking and choosing from a choice of missions was ingenious and catered the event to all types of players! Must have taken a fair bit of planning but the results were there for all to see!

Big thanks also to my Zug mates in the GJ section - great to put some faces to forum names and always great to fight alongside the old familiars. Thanks to Martin for being a top squad leader!

Finally, congrats to all the players - i didnt hear one bit of moaning/cheating/non-hit taking etc and everyone seemed to be playing in the mindset of working in a squad - top work all!

Thank you for organising such a fun day. I've never played the mission style game before and really enjoyed myself. Thanks to my fellow gebirgsjäger's for being great sports and putting up with a ww2 noobie.

Particular highlights for me were getting to use my entrenching tool by digging up the minefield and filling sand bags to fortify the garrison. Also the deep penetration mission was great fun sneaking behind enemy lines. It's a shame our ambush didn't quite work but it would've been glorious if the allies had gone down the path.

Also a well done to the allies for holding that village. I remember having a little duel with a Brit, killing him, then getting hit from a bolt action at an incredible range. Well done that man.

p.s. My ears are still ringing from that grenade that landed on my foot on the bridge. Oh the pain, oh the blindness :D

Regards,

Ralph

I would like to echo the thanks to Martin for leading the GJ, it is a hard task but as the lynchpin to our Zug, you were spot on.
It was great to don my GJ gear and join the baddies again and play alongside some now familiar faces. Great guys!
I had a newbie (Adrian) to WW2 with me on Saturday and he loved it and really embraced the different game style, compared to 'skirmishing'. He will be back and seems to like the German gear too.

Absolute blinder again
Really great to get back in the Brit kit for a game and it wont be too long before the next I hope.
The 34th games go from strength to strength, and its easy to see why with the organisers and support group.
Nice to be able to have a social evening with you all.
Sorry for the no show today but after the camp bed malfunction my back was in rag order all day and wouldn't have stood up to much more.
Roll on the next one..

Ha ha I was just following orders, honest!

We were supposed to capture a box of sweets from the yanks I believe, but the box wasn't there when we got to the location. Good fun though. I wonder what the golfers thought when they saw a fully kitted out german section wondering past them!

Regards,

Ralph

The beretta was beautiful! Shot and performed amazingly for a stock sub machine gun! As a few Americans can testify! 8)

I would also liked to express my thanks to the 34th, my fellow GJ players and all the involved. I had a great day (could only do Saturday) and my body tells me that the site was quite challenging.
Until 4pm I had only used half a mag and probably most of it for testing the gun. We must have been the ghost platoon as we did our missions without much enemy contact. It was great as all the sneaky and holding/guarding action kept the adrenalin pumping.
The last hour I went through all my grenades and plenty of BBs.
Props were great. Loved the German guns especially the 37.
Looking forward to the next game.

Absolutely fantastic day! Many thanks to the organisers, the missions were brilliant, gave you the uncertainty of contact or not while completing it. Especially the "Saving Private Steve" one, I just had to have a kip behind enemy lines but now I know my team misses me

Looking forward to coming back to the site too, first time there and it's a awesome place, the hills are a killer though.

Thanks to the 34th for another great weekend, and in particular to Zug 2 for for their cameraderie and teamwork. The 'deep penetration' mission was the one to retrieve the resistance supplies (which we actually found on Sunday, while lining up to attack the village). I am always slight dumbstruck by how much preparation goes into the 34th games, and I can only apologise that we only completed about six (?) of the numerous missions which had been planned out.

Both days were great fun, and it is nice to contrast the mission games on Saturday with the more scheduled attack/defend missions on Sunday (which I I thought worked really well with the reduced numbers). As noted above, it is a hard site, but at least this year it wasn't as hot as last year and the weather gods were kind to us campers on Saturday (if a bit mean on Friday). I seem to have picked up rather more injuries than usual including crushed/cut fingers from shifting one of the guns, and I also seem to have picked up some large scrapes in my shins which I think happened when I went head over heels down a slope. Wound badge getting upgraded to silver I think.

Really enjoyed the social on Saturday night too, perfect night for it, and good to meet some new people and catch up with old friends. We also had a good planning session for Operation Iskra, which I'm sure you are all coming to

Cheers

As many have mentioned thanks to the organisers for a great weekend. Great to see familiar faces again . Played both days as my decrepid body can attest to . Humping the MG34 around didnt help but its performance outweighed the incumberance of its size and weight. I am sure some of the allies will be glad its safely packed away now . My favourite highlight of the game was getting into the Allied lines at the end of day 1, crawling for ages through the triffids, shooting at least 3 before bursting out of my triffid patch for my suicide charge into a hail of fire. The apologies from the US bloke who lit up my face was not needed as 'shit happens'

Many thanks to the 34th for a fantastic day (sadly i was only there for the Saturday, but as my body is still killing me today that's probably a good thing :),

Having each squad pick their own missions was pure genius and really made the day for me, the organic feel to the day made this event one of the best i've attended .

Many thanks also to my fellow GJ Zug, and to Martin for stepping up for overall command , having two combat squads gave great cohesion mission to mission and made the day very immersive, thanks for having me along.

Special thanks to lutz for opening that bottle of captured american coke, i was dying of thrust at the time and think that may of well been the best bottle of coke i've ever had in my life.

Looking forward to the next 34th game,

John
