Us lot in SAD will probably aim to run a second game later in the year; no concrete plans as yet though.

Planning Rebound is taking up most of the time at the moment!

I wish this didn't clash with a re-enactment event otherwise I'd go.
Looking forward to the future one ;)

New to the ww2 events so its a shame the games are drying up as there seems to be a genuine rise in interest as the general airsoft brigade begins to see the light lol

Agreed, we need more games. It’s disappointing.

What we really need is more people to take the plunge and either organise or offer to help organise a game. I am sure that there are people out there who would all pitch in to offer their services in getting a game off the ground with Props advice etc. I started many years ago on my own £20 a head simple WW2 game. I looked to other games and got advice from other organisers on how to set them up and it has grown from there. The hardest thing is to get a site for a reasonable price.

Chicken and egg really No games = No players which = No games :(

I am not critising as such,but there is a trend to have themed,or time period specific games,so specific uniform is needed,like there is a proposed Russian Front game ,thats great but nobody has Soviet gear on the whole so it limits your player base,which is not great when many games organised sometimes get cancelled due to lack of players.

Most games that have been put on over the years have been pretty Open as far as uniforms etc are concerned. All our events have a lend kit section and most people can get the basic kit required to attend an event. Our rifles game is only asking you to have a Bolt action rifle and a Tin hat, which we could possibly source for you. We would rather have people attend with not 100% kit than rather not come and the event get cancelled.

Proposed Russian Game?? Not heard that and agree not many people have Ruskie kit so it does limit it a bit unless organizers can lend stuff out like Gunman does.

I think over the years some people need to get to an event and worry about the kit later not much point having re enactor kit and no event?

As I said Chicken and egg.
