St Lo is GO GO GO!

Postby Gadge » Thu Jun 18, 2009 11:56 am

Well guys its pretty safe to say that we're ready to cross the start line with this one.

Dont forget to pack plenty of water given the nature of the site (even more so now its lush, green and *very* thick vegetation wise) and the time of year!

We'll be kicking off the social and tent set up around 7pm on the Friday.

If you can please bring a 'bloodstained' bandage or first field dressing to add to the look.

(oh and dont forget to charge your batteries!)

We've also got some guests from wwiireenacting magazine coming along to try out WWII airsoft so lets show the guys a cracking day!

You just reminded me I need to do mine. And touch up the paint on my M38. And sew the eagle onto my new jump smock. And dirty it up as its far too shiney. And fix the EK2 ribbon on my fliegerbluse. I think thats it... :lol:

Gona have to do some dirtying up down there, the strips are far too shiney, which will please Sgt Heide's sniper Brigade. :(
