Sorry chaps, we just don't have enough players to make this one happen :( This is the first event we've ever had to can because of insufficient numbers but them's the breaks...

Andy will arrange full refunds to all who have paid.

AGS will be back in 2013.

All feeds refunded, as received.

Transactions from Django, Agent Orange and Universal Gunner are marked "Pending until 12th June 2012" - sorry, I guess it's just a paypal thing. Anyone with any problems, please PM me.

What a shame.. This is one I would have loved to attended..
As many have mentioned in the past about various events, the 'July curse'.
In my case it is my son's ninth birtday party so impossible to get out of..
Any chance it could be staged later in the year..?
It is still a great basis for a game, also (from what I have seen and heard) a fantastic location..

ARSE! I am very disappointed to see this is cancelled. :cry: I hope this isnt a sign of thing to come, especially considering the winding down of CIA too. Is the WW2 airsoft scene still healthy?
Thanks for the refund Andy, hopefully AGS can reschedule?

Massively disapointed had been really looking forward to this one :o I have always really enjoyed the games and ethos of AGS. The second event to be cancelled for this slot Im afraid it just appears not enough players are free this year for July.

Look forward to the 2013 AGS outing :good:

Extremely disappointed too. I thought there seemed quite a bit of interest.

Bling had already been bought. If events keep being cancelled this far in the future it is going to become self fulfilling - people will not book until they are certain the event is going ahead and the organisers will cancel because no one has booked. This is the second event in July which I have organised and then re-organised things around only to find it cancelled.

Sorry to all, but it was obvious that we were not going to get anywhere near the numbers required to make it work - even with all the recent interest. If we had 10 or 12-a-side at this stage, we would have tried to continue, but 6 vs 5 tells it's own story.

Sorry for you chaps as much as anything, I know you would already put a lot of hard work into this :(

To make it even worse it means there will be 11 weeks to endure between Chateau and Greenback, I can feel the withdrawal shakes coming on already, will have to try and get a fix at my local open day, I can already feel the thousands of bb's richocheting off me :x

One month ago we were going to cancel Dirty Dozen it was close.
It took a lot of nagging at some people to get them to come. :wife:
In the end we still did it but could have had near double the people.

I am sorry to hear about this guys, having had the same experience myself. You know my feelings on how I think WW2 airsoft is going these days and the cancellation of this one just confirms my thoughts.

I hope that you manage to put it on at a later date, as I know how much work you've already put into it.



When I want your opinion - I'll tell you what it is!

Embuggerance!
I feel sorry for the organizers, all that effort, all that frustration of organising, and nada!

I'll have to find some other event to christen my tommy kit :slap:

To the tune of "Mademoiselle from Armentières"

Napoleons army ran away, As you do
The guard stood firm for Frances Pride, As you do
They said the guard will stand and die
But we heard what their Colonel cried
It wasn't pretty I tell you.


Resistance is fertile

its a great shame as i know how much effort you put in but please dont let it put you guy's at AGS off ,the best games ive been to were organised by you.for my part i was really looking forward to this.i dont think this is a general decline,more of a bit of bad timing for the game,there seems a growth of new players in my area especially on the allied side.

armoury
m1a1 Thompson,sten mk2,mp40,stg44,sterling,mk2 bren gun,lee Enfield no4 mk1,Mauser Kar98, Walther ppk,smith and Weston m10 and Mauser m712
Give me a big enough hammer and a place to stand and I could fix the world.
i'll kill a man in a fair fight or if i think he's going to start a fair fight or over a woman or.......
a problem shared is a problem halved ,but an advantage shared is no advantage at all
if a job's not worth doing then its certainly not worth doing well

That's is a massive pile of pooh, July is shit for many reason, but for ww2 war and peace must be a major reason! I too have cancelled games in July so don't take it as a knock.....it isn't! It's just a bad month to run in;)
Keep up the good work lads :good:
