maroons and dets are part of the game plan and will be used in the event by orginizers


if people want to use them, you must PERSONALY speak to me and tiny on the day and well have a look at them (im not being an arse, but F+O have strict rules on pyro) they must be 1 gram or under, and that is deffinatly loud enough for the site, we know weve tested them.

also when you show us the maroons, we will teach you all how to suck eggs on where to place and minimum distance of use. As i said before, strict site rules on pyro mean we must do this, so please follow CIA rule number 1 and dont be a cock, with pyro.

any stupid use of pyro will result in the offender being booted off site (by F+O staff) or if the offender cant be found, a blanket ban on pyro for the rest of the event. so for the sake of all players, keep it safe and simple.


Before any one comments, i know im chucking stones INSIDE my own greenhouse :rofl:

Would we be aloud to use tracer units as silencers and tracer rounds were around in WW2?

Cheers,

Trace units will look good in the tunnels but i'm not sure what the ruling is on them. I know Portas maxim has trace capability but it's in the form of a magazine not a separate unit.

That's no help with your question at all but its all i've got for now!

Tracer units are fine, after all they look like silencers, and whilst not 100% accurate , in the dark not many people will notice the different outline on the gun.

the more the better i say :good:

As the game is now getting a bit nearer, time to start planning some practical stuff....

What time are we planning on starting and finishing on the Sunday, and what time do we need to be there for in the morning?

I've had a peer at the google map linked to from the address, and I can't for the life of me see where the site is. Is it signed in any way once you are close, especially if we are supposed to be using a different entrance to the Open Day up top?

Cheers

Bloody good idea burying the factory under the hill wasn't it? Funnily enough it was blindingly obvious when they built it - they dumped all the spoil across the road leaving a huge white scar from the entrance to the heap!

Have at look at my map:

I think Oddball is planning on using what I've marked as the secondary entrance.

Thats great, thanks CW.

I wondered if it was the bits of hard standing in amongst the woods, but always best to be sure!

We need you on site for 9AM to get signed in etc, we will be looking at about 4.30 for the end.

For a location of the second entrance look here.
http://maps.google.co.uk/maps/ms?msid=2 ... 5,0.005493

You will see 2 possible entrances to be used on the day I suspect it will be the one down Sladd lane.

Sorry about spelling of SLAD or SLADD as it should be. :giggle:

We should have some signage made for the day as well just a few more jobs for me :D

I will update the info thread with this!

If someone is able to have some A3 German posters made up for the day it would be nice, let me know if it is possible :idea:

i just wanted to ask, can pea stick nades be used?

They tend to not like pea grenades in tunnels and F&O say only TLSFx Stick or ball Grenades can be used.
I can get F&O to supply a stock of stick grenades with pull cords on the day if people wish to buy them but I think they are about £5 each or maybe more. I can check the price if you wish, I did intend to give each German a free stick grenade but now it is looking like I am not going to have the full quota of people this probably won't happen.

I've posted the game on the AFRA events list.
It might draw in a player or two?
Failing that it's on the list for when we have to do a risk assessment.
