Well I'll get the ball rolling with a big thanks to Jimbo ,Simon and team for a great day that was mannaged very well when things got sticky or stalled .
I think we all got wet and cold in the morning and the desision to stop for lunch and a brew was a good one ,I can only describe it as a game of two halves because the afternoon was dry and everybody picked themselves up and got stuck into some great game play .I feel very sorry for those who went home at lunch as it really picked up in the afternoon but i also understand why you did .

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

Hear hear! Agree with that!
Well done Jimbo, Simon & Glyn! Great fun day even with the historically accurate weather. Germans gave a sterling defence at the end there, really gave us a run for our money!

Agree with all, to start many thanks to Jimbo & Co for running the day, sounds like the weather scuppered many of your game plans but credit to you all for still hosting an enjoyable day.

The morning was bitterly cold & wet & I think everyone was glad when we got to break for lunch and get a warm brew inside us. The weather improved for the afternoon and although there were fewer players, it was a very enjoyable afternoons action.

Many thanks all!

What can I say other than thank you to you guys for making it the day that it was. No amount of planning or preporation can make up for the high caliber of players that we had today. The weather was against us for sure in the morning but the brew at lunchtime and clearing up in the afternoon sure made up for it. Had a Chinese takeaway and a hot bath, now going to demolish a bottle of red wine and unpack the van tomorrow.
Can someone cleverer than me knock up a medal ribbon please, maybe brown for all that mud lol

Great day today. Thanks to Jimbo, Glyn, Fremsley and Co for organising and managing the day. That battle in the afternoon was amazing! Full credit to the Germans for putting up a stiff resistance after being on the attack all morning and some of their number leaving at lunch. So many good memories from flanking the Jerry lines with the commandos and again with the American Airborne, to hearing the French calling out for "Ooo er la medic" and the occasional mad charge.

Big thanks to the organisers. Yeah the weather was absolute crap, but who cares? It was a good laugh and everyone brought their happy faces, even Gordon whose legs I hosed, which I'll finish apologising for sometime by 2017.

There's a core of very good people in WW2 airsoft that make attending these events increasingly feel like family reunions.

Big shout out to Jay who, despite feeling like death re-heated, turned up and gave it a good go . That's dedication, mate!

Thanks to Jimbo and Fremsley I know what goes into organising an event takes time planning months in advance

Well the weather gods were not on our side in the morning but as the day went on turned out great. In the after noon even ditched the Zelt.

Thanks to all the players old and new as always at events especially when a number are first timers it never cease to amaze me at the standard of kit. Well done all the Brit paras looking good in the kit :D

Well as stated in the morning Zug 1 managed to move exactly 5 meters forward into the dark woods in 30 or so minutes due to the stiff resistance that the Allies put up. If we would have had an operations map we could have had it in one to one scale such was the little headway moved on later to the fuel dump and we tried and tried and we eventually managed to clear the Allies . Note to self more smoke grenades.

After a warm brew lunchtime a big orange thing appeared in the sky spirits were up although we lost a few of our number. Never mind off we marched to set up our defenceas the Allies counter attacked. Now the Muddy boot was on the other foot!

Had a great time defending time and time the US and Brits pushed forward and we beat them off in a disciplined German defence made of sturdy Krupps steel.

Thanks to all of the players and organisers again.

Hope to see you all on 7th May at The Last Stand

Big thanks to Jimbo and the rest of the team . Really enjoyable day. the airsoft god's decided we should be wet and cold but this is war and war is hell so we cracked on. Both sides got stuck in with some good battles throughout the day. It was the first outing with my mg34 and she had a few teething problems ! When she was working she was lovely other times I had a few choice words for her. Many thanks to the chap in the safe zone for helping to clear a jammed bb. But by end of the day she gave up ! Fighting the last battle for the balloon with just my p38 was quite fun . All in all a good day thank again to all involved.-- attachment is not available --

Ladies and Gentleman... The afternoon was superb. Some great work by all and we had a great day. Rain made it fun in a surprising way and the German camo waterproof smocks made target id so much harder. Spotting you is hard enough as it is!

We had a great day and on behalf of Zander and Big Dave would like to thank all of the WW2 community for a great day.

Its about the most open and welcomeing groupe of people you could hope to meet in my opinion .
It was one of those days that makes you respect totally what the real soldier went through in terms of weather conditions and I think we were all glad it was just for the morning that it was so cold and wet ,when you hear about the real weather conditions in WW2 its often described as the worst weather on record for so much of the time ,just makes you think as we went back home to a hot bath and a warm bed ,they would have been sleeping in the open with only what they were carrying to keep them warm ,it just adds to my respect of what they all did .
