Or, wear a camelback under your uniform and feign a "war disfigurement"? :giggle:

Just a quick question, where actually is the safe zone? I mean do we have to drive through grafton park woods, or is it before there?

I'm going off google satellite here. :?

Safe zone is in the middle if the woods. There's a road into the centre of the wood from the gate.

Aha yes I see it!

Because knowing my luck I'd end up in completely the wrong direction.

Just be aware, the technically won't be a safe zone during game play. We'll be moving around the site all day. You'll need to take everything you need with you for the day.

Fine by me. But we are camping on the safe zone aren't we?

Yes, camping and cars in the middle and the safezone remains the safezone throughout the day and is out of bounds to play. Easy to find, if needed, as all tracks lead to it (if it doesn't and you reach a field boundary, turn 180 degrees as you have headed the wrong way :giggle: ). However, as Headshot says, we will not be returning to the safezone until the end of the day and all kit must be carried in-game - it is too much of a distance away from play to be bimbling backwards and forwards!

Just to make sure someone can bring a chrono doohicky, I whacked my K98 up to 500 fps for an open day and had great fun slotting M4 0perat0rs from the undergrowth but now I need to drop it back down to 350 and can't be 100% sure what it's set to
I've fired a bullet on every continent. Nearly hit someone, too.

Ah sorry, you meant where to arrive to. We'll mark the entrance to the site with something. In case anyone missed it, here it is on Google Maps: http://goo.gl/hJO8PX

We will try and get the CiA banner fixed at the gate as well. If we can't keep the gate unlocked we will put the key on a string at that notice board on the right beyond the gate. If that isn't possible, then we will visit the gate regularly until attendees have arrived (as you have already said who is coming on Friday and Saturday). Mobile signals are pooh, at least on EE/T-Mobile/Orange.
