Okay fellas, we are four weeks out for this event and I was hoping to see a lot more members sign up. This is a great way for us to meet other re-enactors and to show the public that not all airsofters are just a bunch of kids running around with real looking guns scaring people.

I also need to get back to them to let them know our numbers. It would be nice to have at least Four Allies and Four Axis (Calling all Germans!) so come on guys and sign up.

This should be a no brainer...

Two weeks to go... come on guys this event needs your support. This is a great way to honor the men we represent and a great chance to meet other re-enactors (Blank-fire).

Guys, I need to get back to them on the numbers that will be attending and how much space we will need so please sign up so I can get back to them with the numbers and space we will need.

At this point it looks like just Allies will be attending.

That would be great great Sam, I have a couple of fox holes to dig and I can use the help. Are you camping out on Friday? If not we have to be ready to go by 10:00 on Saturday. And how about Sunday?

Hmm, for camping I will have to check, sounds like fun though!
Sunday is most likely a no go due to fathers day.

Yeah, I'm getting some flack about not being around for Father's day from my daughter Katelin until I told her... now just imagine if I were gone for 4 or 5 years like they were in the war. This is just one weekend. She kind of understood after that... she still thinks that I'm wierd that I get dressed up and go around shooting people... so that didn't change.

Even if you could make it out for half the day on Sunday would be great. Which would mean another day of Camping.

I'm going up on the Friday and I am planning on being there for around 3:00 or 4:00 depending on traffic. I could swing by and pick you up or is there any chance you could catch a ride with Dogfood and Yorkie? I think they will be coming up on the Saturday.

Yes, you would be in uniform and any gear that you would like to display. Example: period Tent, mess kit, etc.

You would be the only German from OAWWIIR coming at this point (unless you can convince Ivan and some of the other boys to come up). The names of the people coming is on the first post.
