Piddington Booked for 'The Break out' - New site details

Postby Gunman » Wed Sep 28, 2011 8:33 am

Hi all, as you will all be aware we lost Bramley as a venue due to Millitary needs and have moved the event to GASS amazing Piddington Training area A - for directions see here http://www.gassairsoft.co.uk/locations.html

Facilities are NONE!
You will need full camping and water.
We will provide limited power and toilets.
There will be catering done by CHEF who will get his menu up soon.
ALL RUBBISH MUST BE TAKEN AWAY WITH YOU!!!!!!

As always thank you to everyone for their support and a Big thanks to Coley for sorting the site out.

Both sides will have a fully in game area for camping (canvas only) I know alot of the Allied players will want to set up in the Allied HQ. We will still have a social area for everyone too though;)

Oh my, I could use it to hit Germans! I hadn't even thought of that... I was just going to write them a strongly worded letter.

I got knocked out once by a huge 300 yr old bible :slap: I was playing the ghost of a dead knight and some silly arse priest jump out of their skin, to which 'I got it'. If it helps to get some idea this bible was almost A3, nearly 2 inches thick and weighed nearly 2k! :whistle:

Ill always go with period (looking) as it helps with the whole experience but at the end of the day, it has to come down to your own comfort matey.

As the new site is closer (hurrah!) I'll probably turn up Saturday morning, better than fighting down the M1 on Friday night.

You can all laugh at me as I try to put tent up in the dark on Saturday night. As there is a period camping area I'll bring my French Army tent, but bung the plastic one in as well just in case :)

Cheers
