EVENT CANCELLED

Postby BedsnHerts » Tue Jun 05, 2012 2:01 pm

Sorry chaps, we just don't have enough players to make this one happen :( This is the first event we've ever had to can because of insufficient numbers but them's the breaks...

Andy will arrange full refunds to all who have paid.

AGS will be back in 2013.

All feeds refunded, as received.

Transactions from Django, Agent Orange and Universal Gunner are marked "Pending until 12th June 2012" - sorry, I guess it's just a paypal thing. Anyone with any problems, please PM me.

What a shame.. This is one I would have loved to attended..
As many have mentioned in the past about various events, the 'July curse'.
In my case it is my son's ninth birtday party so impossible to get out of..
Any chance it could be staged later in the year..?
It is still a great basis for a game, also (from what I have seen and heard) a fantastic location..

ARSE! I am very disappointed to see this is cancelled. :cry: I hope this isnt a sign of thing to come, especially considering the winding down of CIA too. Is the WW2 airsoft scene still healthy?
Thanks for the refund Andy, hopefully AGS can reschedule?

Massively disapointed had been really looking forward to this one :o I have always really enjoyed the games and ethos of AGS. The second event to be cancelled for this slot Im afraid it just appears not enough players are free this year for July.

Look forward to the 2013 AGS outing :good:

Extremely disappointed too. I thought there seemed quite a bit of interest.

Bling had already been bought. If events keep being cancelled this far in the future it is going to become self fulfilling - people will not book until they are certain the event is going ahead and the organisers will cancel because no one has booked. This is the second event in July which I have organised and then re-organised things around only to find it cancelled.

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

Sorry to all, but it was obvious that we were not going to get anywhere near the numbers required to make it work - even with all the recent interest. If we had 10 or 12-a-side at this stage, we would have tried to continue, but 6 vs 5 tells it's own story.

Sorry for you chaps as much as anything, I know you would already put a lot of hard work into this :(

To make it even worse it means there will be 11 weeks to endure between Chateau and Greenback, I can feel the withdrawal shakes coming on already, will have to try and get a fix at my local open day, I can already feel the thousands of bb's richocheting off me :x

One month ago we were going to cancel Dirty Dozen it was close.
It took a lot of nagging at some people to get them to come. :wife:
In the end we still did it but could have had near double the people.

I am sorry to hear about this guys, having had the same experience myself. You know my feelings on how I think WW2 airsoft is going these days and the cancellation of this one just confirms my thoughts.

I hope that you manage to put it on at a later date, as I know how much work you've already put into it.

Embuggerance!
I feel sorry for the organizers, all that effort, all that frustration of organising, and nada!

I'll have to find some other event to christen my tommy kit :slap:

To the tune of "Mademoiselle from Armentières"

Napoleons army ran away, As you do
The guard stood firm for Frances Pride, As you do
They said the guard will stand and die
But we heard what their Colonel cried
It wasn't pretty I tell you.
