General thread to discuss who is coming and open to any questions that you have about the event. I'll open an official thread of booked players when I get some in.

Yep.

I'm up for a bit of look duck and vanish.

A quick question about the site

Can you confirm, the site has

- Running water from taps.
- what level of toilet facilities (shovels and hedges, turdis/portaloos, or proper toilet block!).

Knowing that helps me establish what I need to plan for. :wink:

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.

You do it in a brown paper bag, and use it as a gammon grenade.

Just like we learnt in Spain! :whistle:

The site has full running water, toilet facilities including the ability to accept disabled, ramps etc. I'm even having the cesspit cleared the week before! Bar on site , food on site and a co-op within two miles if you dont like what we have to offer :wink:

Ta kindly, so its festival standard, bring water butt (empty) and brew up kit and morning dunkies.

Never been to a festival so I dont know the comparison but having just experienced Jedburgh, this will be the extreme opposite of the comfort spectrum! The 20ft mounds that surround the 100m firing range are the highest point between the coast and the South Downs!
It is a totally different landscape to what most peole are used to skirmishing in. Open fields surrounded by hedge rows and intersected by ditch lines. You will probably be able to see the enemy well before you can contact them, but also you will be able to not be seen untill it's too late. There is cover and open land will be broken up with bunkers and defences that will give players a chance to get to, attack and defend.

Not at all, it's one of the guys from Ford and I posted it up just to show how much a bunch of new guys that have never experienced WW2 airsoft have embraced the ethos of this forum. To put it into context, all the guys in the group photo (apart from me) have never experienced any WW2 airsoft games that all the guys here have enjoyed. These guys have gone to that much effort, just on my word that this event will be worth it. They are training every Monday evening and last night I had them march back from skirmish in pairs at 120 pcm for two hudred yards back into the safe zone. They should be half decent on drill by the time Sealion occurs, and purely just because they want to and it looks cool!

Festivals = camping in relative comfort as long as you bring it with you.

As for the terrain, in other words, your describing sniper country, and with the large number of high powered 98ks out there, oh lummy :shock:

Yes snipers will have fun if it's not windy, but will be fubared if there's a strong breeze coming in off the sea! I also discovered last weekend that 3 x K98's in a group is lethal, untill 4 guys with Tommies and Stens, come around the corner on your flank :roll:

Hi Jimbo, I'll be along for this one, that is all one of me, as waffen SS. It looks like you've got good numbers for the allies. Let's hope we get a good showing of the "Alte Kameraden" to even the numbers up.

The terrain sounds interesting, not much cover, hedgerows, ditches and bunkers. It sounds like us jerries are going to need some proper tactics to succeed in our grand plan. Plenty of firepower and grenades. That Lewis gun looks superb, maybe us germans will get lucky and someone will bring along an MG42.

Looking forward to it, should be excellent.

There is a rumour, and after nearly two years, I've heard it before, that my MG42 will be up and running for this event. I may struggle with the front swivel mount but you wouldnt want lug the anti aircraft mount that I have for it around.
Failing that I know that Stof has an excellent MG34 lookalike that can suppress those Tommies hiding behind their Lewis :wink:
