£20.00 for day (£10 paid deposit and £10 on the day). No lunch provided so bring your own. No camping.

After the success outside of Avellino, General Heinrich Von Vietinghoff, is quick bolster his troops in the area and organise a swift counter attack to try and keep the allied troops off guard, his two primary targets are an American supply depot and a makeshift prisoner of war camp on the outskirts of Mercato San Severino. The Allies still in shock after been pushed back on the doorstep of Avellino are regrouping to try again unaware of the counter attack.

Can the Germans push back the allied forces again or will the allies finally clear the path to Avellino?

Events details
We can get on the Fireball site from 8am (we are normally in maccies from about 7.45) but the gates shut about 9.15 at National Paintball Fields, which we have to drive through to get to Fireball so you have to be on site for then. This also means we can not get off site till 16.30 pm, except in emergency

Briefing at 09.30 for a 10.00 start.

The game will be split into 2 halves with a lunch break.

We will have bbs, pyros and gas etc for sale

2 bandages per player.
Each side will also have a medic, that will carry a limited supply of red bandages that can replace one white bandage (so you may be able to have 2 white and 1 red bandage on you).
1 Command Squad and 2 Infantry squads per side with rolling mission objectives.
There is limited ammo, a morning game with objectives, short lunch break then back out for the afternoon game.
