Next Kelly's heroes event will probably be held on third weekend in November, whole town will be battlefield and you can expect about 150 players (hopefully more). You can PM me if you have any questions about the event or traveling to Croatia.

It looks pretty darn good, but flying to Croatia for a 2 day game? Might be a tad excessive :|

Well we go quite regularly to Czech Republic for ww2 events and Czechs, Slovaks, Slovenians, Bosnians and Poles come to Croatia. We are going in March to event near Prague. We'll make 5 days beer fest of it. Beer will flow. It's 11-12 hours drive. Flight from London to Croatia is 2-2.5 hours depending on which airport you land.

I worked in and around Praha in 2003 for 6 months and I drove my Special Effects truck back to the UK , stopped to see friends in Munchen ( and collect some of my favourite beer) stopped in Belgium for the night, was about 1000 miles I think.
If I can go to this I would like to get a van and drive. I work in Film and often have to travel with prop weaponry so will follow the regulations to take airsoft Kit .

I stayed at Losinj just before the war and loved it, there were some great statues remembering your troops during WW2 , I loved the local prochek ( not sure how to spell it) and bout a couple of bottles Home, this must have been about 1986/7

I didn't mean to sound so negative, I'm genuinely considering this!
Probably most doable in groups I would imagine

It's called Prosek in Dalmatia. It's sweet dessert wine. No relation with italian prosecco.

Well it's about 1000 miles from London to Vizinada. We also use van for our trip from Split to Prague (about 1100 kilometers). We only inform police at croatian border with Slovenia that we are carrying airsoft replicas and the rest of the trip is thru Schengen states so no borders.

So it appears that date has been set. Third weekend in October. From 18th (arrival of troops) until 21st of October. But final confirmation will be next month. October means nicer weather and more daylight meaning longer play. You can expect 2 days of airsoft and 1 day of reeanactment for villagers and tourists. Details are still being decided and we'll inform you promptly.
