Aye, in the CiA tradition, its as much about the camaraderie as it is about the shooting plastic pellets at people.

I've heard rumours that there's a curry house that will deliver local to the site.

Do those kipping in the tunnels need to bring ressies too?

Will check for you on the alcohol front. Damp wise, the air down is a bit a bit on the damp side, but nowt too bad, and totally dry underfoot where people will be crashing out.

Helga - we have chloroform at work, want me to fill a bottle up for che, so he can guarantee some peace and quiet when at home lol

Considering what happened at Arnhem with too much alcohol being imbibed the night before for some people I suggest that you don't bring much with you even if it is allowed! Remember its going to be an early start.

Also I reckon it should be lights out at around 12 midnight (and that means it'll be pitch black)... that'll stop the excessive imbibing! :)

I wasn't planning on making it a heavy night, just a couple to help me ignore the cold and/or snoring! :lol:

It's no biggie anyway, just thought i'd ask before bringing a four-pack.

Just wondering what would be more painful on the ears to wake people up to.

Vera Lynn, or Wagner.....

I assume the amount consumed on the last training day was ok, I don't think anyone was hungover ? they certainly wasn't any snappyness among the happy campers, even those that had lil to no sleep 8) and other than nodding off in the road at the given opportunies of ambushes, moderation I guess is the key and knowing your limit. 1 can of larger for me and I'd be swinging from the rafters, however I may take a hip flask of something more palatable 8)

Musically wise :lol: I'm fine with anything except for Lili Marlene in German, I had nightmares after CR having listened to it on loop all weekend :oops: would get me out of bed on the Sunday morning, however the person who need to ensure they are well out of my way :twisted: It would be more painful to them that it would be to my ears :twisted:

Question asked, and answered!

Beers are fine, there will be no playing/shooting in the evening anyways, so a few the night before is no different than popping up the pub

And, while I remember, the gaming area is off limits to players on the Saturday, as we want the place to be a nice surprise for you all in the morning!
