As I could only do maybe 4 or so events a year I used to base them around CIA events & have found consistently that they were excellent. Like UG said, for me also the gun was mostly a prop for the whole event, blatfests not being my thing at all... these events will be sadly missed by me &, i suspect, by more than a few others
Just a thought, but in stead of riding off into the sunset.. Why not just do one blinder of an event each year and make it the high light of the ww2 airsoft calender..?

Oh rats, that's a real shame.
I was desperately hoping to attend this one, just couldn't commit yet.
Only ever attended Volturno with CiA but it was great, good luck whatever the future holds guys.

I am sorry the event thas been cancelled, I've greatly enjoyed the three CiA games I've been to, and a full 24 hour game is something I hope to manage to do one day. In line with other comments, I'm not especially interested in blatfests, one of the highlights of 'Patton Stalled' was actually being able to use my e-tool to dig a trench
Unfortunately I couldn't make either Schlauen or this one as both were the first weekend of July which clash with another regular event.
Plenty of people pitch up at other organisers weekend events, so I don't think there is a particular problem with weekenders per se , but in the modern world we are all busy and have other stuff going on.

This is a bit after the fact now, but I've only just found this thread as it's been moved down to the bottom of the forum. Call me dumb, but I've been looking for notification on this for a while and I'd assumed it was delayed as the thread disappeared from the events section. I guess I was one of the 4 that PMed then ?
I'm REALLY sorry to hear about this being cancelled. I completely understand the reasons, but I'm also sorry to hear that you look like you are jacking things in.
I've been LARPing, reenacting and Airsofting (later on) for over 20 years now in a huge range of genres and I can honestly, hand on heart say that Jedburgh was one of my favourite events ever. Immersive, terrifying, tense and a couple of moments of pure adrenaline. I was deeply hoping that this event would live up to that high benchmark. But then I've been an event organiser myself and I also understand the pressures you are under financially, time wise and everything else.
So if this is your swan song, thanks for a few absolutely awesome events.
