We are going to try and get to more shoots in the new year :D


Huh?? There was a game in Kidderminster a few weeks ago...

As porta said i was there :D i dont mind travelling i expect to have to travel to ww2 shoots, but when you have to travel far distances to every shoot it then becomes expensive in travel costs so then it limits you to the amount of shoots you can afford to go to :(

But the problems is WW2 players are all over the country, so how do organisers cater for everyone?

I feel your pain though, as an organiser some of the mileage can get tedious!

this is the problem way down south rules out those up north some times and like wise if you play a game up north , if only there was some place in the middle :happyswing:

and has nothing to do with being in the midlands ...honest :) , for me that last game we played down south at gunman was about limit for us as most only can make the saturdays - thou well worth the trip :)

Norwich is a complete bugger to get to though. I once drove there from Lincoln and it took 4.5 hours!


I'm pretty sure that's because that part of the country simply hasn't been mapped by the Ordnance Survey, due to its remoteness. :wink:

Well, they can't. It s unrealistic to expect every player to be able to go to every single game.

Even if distance isn't an issue, other real life things intervene too.

However, if running a game in a far flung corner of the country, then it is likely (but by no means certain) that you will get fewer players. Giving a lot of notice helps. Look at the turnout for Il Gigio.

Some players will also make a big effort to go to some sorts of games, but at the end of the day it is a hobby and everyones motivation to go to particular things will vary.

I voted for just can't afford it in January, the distance is not such a huge factor but still a consideration due to fuel cost's etc and when coupled with not really liking real steel limits at games I would rather wait for a game a bit later in the year when money is not so tight and has the normal ammo rules.

Thinking further, it's not necessarily distance per se (although I am a hopeless night driver), but the amount of time I would be away from home. Unfortunately, my wife is not well right now, so I will be strictly limiting my nights away in 2013. So really, any venue beyond 3 hours requires a night stay.

As Andy said distance to Norwich is actually shorter than other venues I am willing to travel to but it is the time taken to get there. Also this time of year (Not being spring or Summer) is a No No for me for camping. Sorry done that for real many years ago in the Army Brrrrrhhhhhh!!!!

Josh as a side not for AGS I have plotted people who live Down South who Actually go to games not wannabees for PR purposes. I used it for the game I put on last May. I first contacted people by PM got the minimum required for the site then put the game on the forum and ended up with 50 odd people coming. As you can see not many over Norwich way who I have found.This might help in planning for the future. Just drop me a line if you need any more details

cheers guys. The key one seems to be the site location as much as anything which is a shame as I could have used another site.

Looks like this was is getting postponed till the summer!

cheers again guys :good:

I find money tight most of the time, but tbh when its a distance away I have trouble affording the petrol as well...

Plus I have to limit events to keep the missus sweet since I cant afford a divorce at the moment....

However its a real bummer when you have all the kit ready to go apart from that!
