Copy and paste the link above. Check out this photo of the old aerodrome. The gaming area is in the woods at the top of the photo. The runways are no longer there.
The area has natural and built defence points which will be used for game objectives. How often do you get to play on a ww2 site?

you can still see runway location from the air. We operate in the woods above the runway.

Where do we park up when we come on site? Those buildings near the entrance or somewhere else?

We have put a lot of work into developing this site. Got quite a few cold war war Mil Sims booked in for the new year. It's ideal for world war two and we are in the midlands . Why not try us out?

I would really liked to have attended this, but I’m booked on an SIA course until the Sunday, can’t re- book as this is the last one near me to do this year. So good luck, hope all goes well

Game overview
German forces will advance westward to destroy allied resistence points and capture the HQ and all important supply depot.
Allied forces will be defending and resisting.
Germans will have one admin point to start with and can move that with supplies to any position captured.
Germans need to be mobile.

We will have a lunch stand down to regroup.
