As for video... I now have over 28GB of footage taken by elam (the guy with the video camera on the tripod).

Thats almost 3 hours of the stuff! I'll try and get something cut together as soon as I can, but its going to take a while!

No, it's a reference to a character in the Sven Hassel novels.

:D

Wish I'd taken more footage but then I wouldn't have gotten to play. :)

Personally I had a blast. I was suprised how entertaining it is to stand in open ground and watch a firefight going on while no one wanted to shoot me :) Plus the one pic I've seen of me puts aside my fear that I was walking round dressed as a Jewish Rabbi :D

Oh and I've discovered that "I luffff gooooooooooooooold " Image

Superb Diggs - we should have dumped our three hours worth of tapes on you before you left!

3 hours worth of footage if you could make that into a proper movie then put a download link up on the website that would rule, as well as attract more members. :wink:

Cheers.

3 hours of unedited footage? eek! That would be duller than watching paint peel. ;)
