Many thanks for today

Well it really was mist! Wet, ice and cold. A real bulge atmosphere and many thanks to all who braved it.
I hope you all had a great day, I certainly enjoyed it even though my Panther didn't start!
Fair play and a sense of humour from all.
Hope to see you at a game later in 2018.
Well done and happy xmas
Tony

Hi Tony, thanks for putting the game on it had a really good atmosphere and a good turn out too. I enjoyed the day using a bolt action rifle - don't think I hit anyone all day but had fun trying - love the site hope you put on another game in 2018. :good:

Completely agree great atmosphere snow patches, mud, cold and rain. My winter gear really worked well.

yes must also say thanks for putting it on. Loved the snow and ice effects too, well done.

As usual I thought the game play spot on and everyone played extremely well and fair. I know at least one person thought he shot me and be a bit miffed but you didn't honest.

An excellent day and did the allies actually win?! A first for me if we did.

First winter game for me, not as cold as I thought it might be, great atmosphere, great site, 2nd time for me at Grafton. Great game play, good bunch of players.
Will come to next game, when listed.
As usual totally knackered me, but a very enjoyable day.
