It's no good trying to organise a game by committee. Just plan it and post it up, if people can and want to make it, they'll let you know! The site is so good, it will sell itself.

The only problem is that last time it didn't and the game was cancelled due to lack of participants and other events in the South but that is history.

However there is a saying about history :whistle:

Well, I'm a great believer in that sometimes, you have to commit and go for it. At the end of the day, it's your game, it's no good seeking approval from a bunch of people who all want different things. If, after all of your hard work, it gets cancelled, then, so what, it's only a f**king game. Believe me, it's happened to me but, at least I knew it wasn't down to trying to please too many people by compromising a sound game plan.

I think ether of the weekends would be fine mate, like heide sed, just pick one and go for it, I know me and the lads will probably be up for it and the 34th lads only do one day normally anyway, but I think there interested as well as far as I can tell. Go for it mate, " and stop with those negative vibes, it's a mother beautiful game" :good:

In some cases I agree with that policy but this time I feel Headshot is right.
The team of people up here that would have worked to pull this together have too many other projects and life issues to contend with this year.

I wasn't going to take it on as it was but due to some slight incentive recently I thought we could give it a go but it looks like not happening.

Porta & Tiny have their own business to run Alex has a big event in his life this year I will let him announce if he wishes and I am trying to move house.

To run this reasonably we need 4 people to give decent time to it, if there are any others in the North West or Midlands that fancy a go contact me.
I have tried to sort out the best all round date either 3/4th or 10/11th which would suit weather conditions and other WW2 events. 3/4th there is a big show in the South and 10/11th the Yanks event at Saddleworth, so it is a toss up between the two.
For the last 3 years I have tried to get more re-enactors involved in this area to inject new blood but it hasn't yet worked to a degree that we have sparked enough interest in them assisting more.
Maybe this event will be better timed for next year. :cry:

would normally offer to help but i have committed to stuff this year with fireball for the the big weekender and some other bits , gutted was looking forward to it , i could maybe help more after july after i got this weekender done.

and you are right cuff even the more simple of events take a lot of effort that folks don't see, and how draining it can be :(
