Just home, great weekend, weather could have been a smige more forgiving last night :lol: but today the sun shone for us (my first EVER dry sunny airsofting event :lol: Need to strap my hand up as I threw myself down and sprained it after lunch and its really starting to hurt now :oops: am just uploading a few piccies Che took with the digi cam 8) and you'll have to wait for the more authentic piccies, I'll get development of the primative pics sorted this week and scan the result (hopefully should have some interesting ones :lol: )

To the new chaps I played along side it was a pleasure to the rest ..... ah shucks you guys know you rock ;)

Wasn't sure tbh what to make of today (can say it now its over :oops: ) but I actually felt there were a few great ideas that could be carried into other games.

Thanks to Yith and Gadge, Evo for his efforts tho I never managed to get in the bunker :lol: and the F & O Chaps 8)

I had an absolutely blinding time glad I volunteered to be medic but should of keep hold of that bag on the last round when that mad shoot out happened.
Thanks to everyone who lent me my load out you know who you are I now love denison and 37 pattern .

This was probably the best days airsofting ever for me I would do WW2 every time if I could ,it makes such a big difference when the squad leaders know what they are doing and everyone is committed to realism .
Well done chomley worner ,yiff etc on that score .
Also I thought the scenarios were set up nicely and the medic rules worked very well .
Top day

:oops: :( Really sorry about the flag guys. In the heat of the battle it was a case of grab it and run, I didnt think it would be tightly secured :slap: hope it can be repaired in some way.

As for the Day, I though it was fantastic! I thought the combat mission style of game play worked very well. Big thanks to Gadge, F&O, PBI and all the players. It was great to meet and chat with some of you too.

it wasn't when i put it up, i tied the knots in a way so they released when you pulled the flag. it must have fallen down and someone re-tied it back up.

Never mind, these things happen in war! :)

Well I had a great day too. I also feel the short dynamic campaign games worked really well, it got you involved in the story and meant achieving your objectives had a major affect on the battle. Having shorter games also helped prevent it stagnating as people didn't have it stop to reload mags mid battle. The limited lives also made you think about what you were doing a bit more than usual.
The scenarios were also generally well thought out and enjoyable, the mix of intense action and quiet, tense games was great.

All in all a fantastic day and thanks to PBI, F&O and everyone there for making it happen.

To start with, I didn't know if I'd like the short scenarios, but as the day panned out, I soon got into the swing of things, and the fact that winning one scenario changed the course of the war (!) made it very interesting. The variety of scenarios was fantastic - not just shoot 'em up all day, but lots of sneaky beaky and intelligent play required. The laying of the phone line was a fantastic idea!

Huge thanks to all who made great efforts, to enable the rest of us to have a great time - PBI organisers and F & O people too. :thumbs:

Many thanks to the PBI organisers, F&O for letting us use their site and to all players who were there. I had a great day.
