Not that I'd totally forgotten, or anything. :oops:

I feel honoured that you'd rather spend the day with us than at the wedding. You're an inspiration :whistle:

OK Peter, I'll put you in ze list.

Going to be sending the site owners the list of names in a couple of days just to ensure we get a spot. It's not the be and end all mind so don't worry if you want to come but don't put your name down. It'll be a fun day and hopefully we can inspire some new recruits for the hobby. At the least we'll all have a laugh and stick it to the modern lot :lol:
Regards,

Ralph

Hi Ralph,
I want to come but have to leave already around 2pm.
Do you know, if this is an issue?
Cheers
Lutz

Did we have anything left from my bits & bobs I gave you?
If so can you bring them along.
We could have some good fun before you leave the game :rofl: :rofl:

Hi Jerry,
I will try. I am having my house renovated and lots of stuff is packed up.
Need to check, if I can get to it.
Cheers
Lutz

That's great news, Peter. That'll definitely get some interest from the modern guys.

Lutz, that won't be a problem. You'll need to let the gate marshal know that you need to leave early so he can direct you to the overflow car park. It's quicker to get out that way.

Wattsy, I'll add him to the list.

Looks like it's going to be a good day.
Regards,

Ralph

If you can't find the bits & bobs don't panic I still have my mortar to play with plus i've just purchased 20 rounds & we can have some fun surprising the enemy with them alone without any booby-traps or other tricks up our sleeves.
See ya
Peter. :good:

Hi all
Just thinking I will bring my armory with me & if we end up using it who would like to be number one on my 30cal & I would be your number two?
As some of you may know I have had an ileostomy which will be reversed in the near future but at the moment I have to run around with a bag stuck to my belly which I poo in don't worry it doesn't smell or leak anywhere but it means I can't afford to fall over carrying anything to heavy hence why I would be someone's number two.
Just something worth looking at as well as a mortar team that I have already got the OK from the organiser.
See ya.
Peter. :good:

Has anybody seen how many players are booked on so far for this game?
It's in excess of 100 so it should be a bloody good game if there's not to many trigger happy looneys & I do hope that there's not to many players with weapons running on hpa as 9 times out of 10 that ruins the game because we wouldn't have a chance with our slower rate of fire weapons.
Just checking are we all playing as one unit or are we splitting up so we have some players on each side?
Personally I would like to see us all playing as one section so that we could show the multicam masses what we can do even if are weapons fire at a slower rate & that we can still be as sneaky as they are in are out of date kit.
Maybe they will be able to see how much fun we can have too & that in our games (most of the time) we get to use vehicles,mortars & a lot more tricks with pyro which always add to the buzz of any game.
So anyone got any idea.
Peter.

There's bound to be some idiots at any skirmish day and that can't really be helped but I've heard the Marshalls are good so hopefully there won't be too much trouble. I'd like everyone to try and fight together as much as possible, obviously that may not always be possible after regen and general confusion in battle.

I think I'll go british for this one. Battledress, MkIII helmet, assault vest and sten or Thompson plus the Webley of course.
Regards,

Ralph

Stanley
It's about 15kg & it feels a lot bloody heavier after 10 mind running around with it don't worry the number two has the ammo box & tripod to carry but that's not quite so heavy.
I am quite fit as my job involves alot of lifting buteo far I've made the mistake of bending down to far with a full bag which then forces a leek as you may know sometimes can happen.
So I won't be the only jerryatrick on the field then for a change.
See ya next week.
Peter.

I think from dog co we have 7 players who have confirmed and booked on as well who don't use the forums that much. We should all try and get on 1 team. Bol ties vs high cap whores :giggle:
