Really sorry to hear this, I would have been keen to but this year just hasn't worked out for events for me. The support is still there guys, don't lose heart!

Location in a lot of game cancellations has to be a factor, but that's sadly a fact of life. A game needs a location and no matter where it is it'll be out of range for someone. That has been my issue with WW2 Airsoft, with fuel costs and life in general the chance of me attending most events is non existant as I live down south. Fact is at present I can't justify the cost of any airsoft at all, I've done a handful of reenactment events this year which don't have the same cost attached that airsoft does. All the best for the next attempt at the "Russian Game".

Just the wrong weekend for me. I'm stuck on alternate weekends and that was not one I could make. Sorry chaps. Hope to make the next one. :good:

Bugger! :cry: I was really looking forward to this, I delayed booking on as I had to wait until I got paid, (which I did on Friday), and work out if I could afford it, which I could :D and then I came on here and found it had been postponed :(

I hope you re-schedule it at the same venue as I really like playing in the tunnels :good:

I must admit I tend to leave booking on games untill the last minute as money is tight. Perhaps this is a lesson to all of us that if we expect game organisers to risk a financial loss by putting games on for us we need to book on earlier to avoid dissapointment. Not easy though in the current financial climate :slap:

Damned shame. :cry:

Sadly (soon to be lack of) work problems got in the way of booking and even if I did, attendance would not have been certain. Though I doubt one more would have tipped it.
Still If I could have swung it, I was was looking forward to a bit of pipe wrench of entrenching tool action! :giggle:

They said the guard will stand and die
But we heard what their Colonel cried
It wasn't pretty I tell you.

i still believe a note on the booking thread to the affect that "we need this many people booked by this date to make this game viable" might be a simple step to make people aware of the deadlines involved and maybe stump up the dosh sooner if it looks low on numbers close to the deadline.

Myself and Lardy did this for Luga and were fully booked a month before game so its deffo something that works and allows everyone to know where they stand.

I tend to go the other way and book on quickly, thus committing myself and so having to go. It works for me as it forces you to prioritise funds :good:

Oh bum. My own fault for not getting on and booking up. Let us know when we can re-book. BTW do we still have to do this every time we mention Stalingrad?

I don't think so, Porta ran a successful Stalingrad game earlier this year, so I'd say the curse is broken.

Games not running is just one of those things.
