Heh, yes it's such a different site, there is nothing to compare it to. This was much better than Wotan, and the ammo limit helped a bit. I forgot just how dark it was down there - literally could not see my hand in front of my face in places. My most satisfying kills were through a head-high hole in the brickwork, where I took out 3 Jerries who didn't have a clue where the fire was coming from! Great organisation Kermit et al. Also good to skirmish on the Allies side with people like Sgt Ash and Marsha. :good:

And I am now the final paid up member of the Drink & Bling Gruppen. :D

Well, I'm back home, the props and kit have been put away, and i've a beer at hand.

What can I say? Thanks to all the players, my fellow CiA organisers and to Andy & his crew for a most enjoyable days shooting :good:

When I sat down to write this game I wanted to come up with a more sneaky-beaky type game than Wotan. The revised ammo limits and medic rules helped, as did the use of the red light. You guys and gals rose to the spirit of the event - short, vicious firefights, and plenty of flanking maneuvers - using brain cells as much as trigger fingers. A pleasure to shoot alongside the Allies for a change. Even if I do still think I looked bloody awful in Yank kit :lol:

More thoughts later, once i've had a good soak in the bath!

FAN-flippin-tastic! I was revelling in the sneak beakyness! The game felt like it was engineered around my style of play, gun and run, sneak and peek!

Thanks to Kermit and all of the other organisers, and the UCAP guys for making it all possible! (damn you Andy for killing me with a springer!!)

Kermit you didnt look *that* bad in yank kit! I was convinced at least! Funnily enough Guy was saying at lunchtime to me "do you think its easier to recognise targets because all of the germans are wearing helmets? To which I said yeah,... not seen any blue on blue this morning... lo and behold, 1st time i get shot after lunch.... thanks Jay ;)

ANywho, back to the game! It was awesome, I was scared and excited. I'm not looking foward to the headache when the adrenaline finally wears off!

Well done to the Germans too, shortly before lunch we had you on the back foot, but it didnt take long for you to push us back! Well played to all!

Great thanks to Oddball for kindly giving me a lift home, I would have still been somewhere between southampton and oxford by now no doubt!

I had a great day, many thanks to the organisers & UCAP for creating such an atmospheric scenario!

Funniest bit of the day for me was when Bosh and I walked up to a fella we thought was a German. He in turn thought we were allies. After a couple of minutes of standing together Bosh called out the german password to some other players all three of us were looking at. The Brit para then spins round and opens up on us from about 2 foot away on full auto. Bosh and I look at each other and then shoot him, he had an empty mag :slap:

Took a couple of dodgy pics with my phone:

Fantastic day, not played a CQB style game in about 2 years now and enjoyed the whole day, the dark allowed for loads of sneaking around, and the thunderflashes going off were really loud, but fun!, gun problems right from the start made my kills come in around 5 all day, but kept a lot of heads down.

Many thanks to Kermit and the UCAP crew for a great day, thanks to the Germans for giving me people to shoot and many thanks to all the Brits for fighting alongside me, and not forgetting the Yanks, Marsha for saving my butt when I was pinned down behind a stack of draws.

See you all soon :good:

Sometimes we never really find out what the other side's objectives were, and other details that get lost. (e.g. at Eagle, the Yanks only having 5 rounds at the beginning.) Would someone (Kermit?) be able to give away a few bits of info that we otherwise wouldn't know?

Both the Allied and Axis objectives were the same. Which is why I hid the Intel in some odd places - trust me when I say that you did not find all of it. Or anywhere near all of it. They'll be finding it down there for years to come...

Oh yeah, did anyone find some sheets with handwritten codes on them? (i.e. 1/9/11/26/2) - and did you work out what they meant? (wasn't exactly a difficult code to break - just for fun! ;) )

YES, I DID !!

I found it whilst shirking some action that was a bit too CQB for my tastes.

I'd proudly presented so much stuff to our CO's only to be told "nah, worthless" (often accompanied by a rolling of the eyes in a how-many-times-do-we-have-to-tell-you way), that I just saw a bunch of handwritten numbers and thought "nah, worthless" and didn't even bother taking it back :oops:
