Just in case anyone is champing at the bit to ask anything, and wondering where the heck they can do that, I will plonk this up before I place the rest of the info up during the day.

Does 'rifles only' include semi-automatics (like Garands, G43s etc) or do you only want bolties?

Though bolties are preferred we are allowing Semi Auto rifles, though only with small 'shotgun sized' mags and ammo will be severely curtailed.

What about power? I have a gas bolt action but it's 475fps.

I have a small skewer hidden in the collar of my jumping jacket, and a razorblade in my gaiter, as well as my knife.

We are not limiting power (obviously we are at 500), but there are no sidearms, so if someone gets close your only option is retreat.

Not even springers? I hadn't quite absorbed the full implications of 'rifles only'. Sounds like a job for the rubber knife!

Not meaning to be negative, sounds a great event and I'll be signing up as soon as I get a pass from She Who Must be Obeyed.

Well given that some of these semi-auto pistols have the range and accuracy of many of the rifles, it would somewhat defeat the object if a squad charges with draw pistols... So we are gonna keep it simple, rifles only means 'rifles only'. :D

Personally I'll be at 350fps with my SMLE. Its loads of fun bolting without Minimum Engagement Distances.

He was being amusing, given that one of the German units present was a machine Gun Battalion.

We toyed with an MG, but have no plans to include them as yet.
