The Volturno Affair

This is the official booking thread. As with all Comrades in Arms events, once you have booked and paid your name will appear on this list.

Before you book some final words about the event.
1. This is a CiA WW2 enactment event. We are looking to achieve a feel for what it was like to be a soldier in WW2. To do this we use a mixture of re-enactment, airsoft and role playing and encourage people who come to our events to embrace the same mindset. Most of all it is about having fun.
2. The site is large, 200 acres. Also the event will run in a day-long (11am - 8pm) format without breaks
3. Players are welcome to camp and attend one of the legendary CiA socials on the Saturday evening.
4. This is a restricted uniform event. Usual CiA rules re kit, weapons and camping, detailed here. For this event we are trying to be as inclusive as possible so have purposefully kept the kit restrictions very loose. Any German, British or American kit will be allowed, as well as Italian civilian partisan clothing.
5. Comrades in Arms has a minimum player age of 18 (at game date).
6. You do not need to be a member of Comrades in Arms to attend this event, it is open to all.
7. If you have a period vehicle and want to use it in game then please PM an organiser.
8. If you don't have the kit or weaponry to attend this event, simply ask if you can borrow some kit of a friendly fellow-player by asking in the thread linked to here.

Payment is £30 in full and can be paid in two ways:

- Paypal to info(at)comrades-in-arms(dot)co(dot)uk
- Cheque payable to 'Comrades in Arms' and sent to:
c/o Screen WM
9 Regent Place
B1 3NJ

Include your full name, forum name, and side and role you are playing.

15 places a side to start with although we will increase this if we can keep the sides balanced.

Game fees are non-refundable, however the place is transferable. If you are unable to attend then you may make your own arrangements to swap with another player, you can use the forum for this purpose. We only ask that you transfer German for German, Allied for Allied. If you want a side swap it must be approved by CiA organisers before transfer.

German side now fully booked

Given the imbalance, we may ask for volunteers to swap to the Allied side by the end of September if the numbers don't increase.
