Heh, another challenging CiA event - well, we do like to test you mentally and physically! Well done to all for the stirling effort, working 'til you dropped - literally!

For those of you in the Home Guard I've dropped you a short note (and those not in the Home Guard might be interested in what we got up to)

It was also good to have a bunch of new players on this caper and extra good that they were such top-notch chaps. Special mention to Johnny and Gary from the Signals. I'd have liked to share a beer with you on Saturday evening but family obligations beckoned :roll:

An absolutely brilliant event. Well done to all concerned. I can't really say much more than that. I was almost totally immersed all through the day!

Well done to all who came along, I'm so glad the weather held for us and people enjoyed themselves, you make it all worthwhile for us. Lots of great moments, I never expected to have to escape and evade on "home ground"!

Thanks to all for coming and getting stuck in .As ever some nice dodgy dealings , with both sides swapping uniforms in ruse de guerre. When all the Germans had finally captured the old farm buildings none of us could understand why Hess was not there. For about 3 1/2 minutes at least .

In the end Hess escaped from the dastardly Brits, and was liberated by the FJ, who managed also to outwit the SS . The Deputy Fuhrer however, had given his British captors some evidence of Germany's planned invasion of Russia , and so is now awaiting his fate in Spandau Prison .

Cracking weekend, never dragged, never felt like tedious shooting for no reason, never felt 'out of character'. Top show my good fellows, loved it.

Top weekend once more! Huge thanks to all the cia crew who painstakingly put this together! Most excellent. Mention to headshot for his fantastic portrail of hauptman hess! I will forever be on my gaurd of germans grabbing my tool handle! :oops: to Pete and Stu for some great adventures through the valleys! There were a few chin strapped tommies I can tell u! I hold no resentment towards Pete for putting me on the wire duty on to have me pull it all in again! My feet are blistered, arms raked by brambles, finger tingling from the shock I took from the phone terminals and my back aches from carrying the HG (joke!)! Great weekend all round! Looking forward to seeing the film! Beds'n'herts... Next one we'll have a few mate! Can't wait for the next one (I think! Scouting!?hmmm)! :D

:oops: Sorry about that! Just as you got it all untangled and lugged the kit down to the checkpoints, I received reports of a German aircrash and was given new orders. Look on it as a learning curve! :giggle:

Great fun and really good to meet some new people. Game worked really well in recreating being hot, thirsty, knackered and dreading having to climb yet another hill or cross another river :)

Many thanks to Guy for his inspired leadership, as we ended up dong the right thing even though we were doing the wrong thing, sort of...

It was such fun blowing up the British camp and rescuing Hess, although he proved to be a bit of slippery customer.

Cheers

Well, my hamstrings are still hurting and Kermit's "curse of the motorways" afflicted me yet again on the way back (how can i drive the same motorway in less than 36 hrs and get caught by the road being closed twice?!?!) but I have to say that I enjoyed it. Kudos to the Germans for working fantastically well in their sections (and putting up with the hills and multiple crossings of that damn stream and god knows how many barbed wire fences!). Top moment of the day for me was getting stuck on the wrong side of a hedgerow along with Hänschen klein, and then wasting Pete's section as they attempted to grenade us out of our positions. Short, nasty skirmishes - just as I like it!

Thanks to all that took part!

As mentioned by most, thanks once again to the CIA organisers for an enjoyable weekend. Special thanks go to John for allowing me to hitch a ride, Gary for the entertainment and the Nottinghamshire lads for a right good giggle, thanks, Tony.
