Thanks Hadeel will be good to see you and Ross again. Scared of coming up against you with your VC knife!!!!!!!!
Just a quick one guys - Personal weapons ARE allowed as long as they are legal and you follow the usual safety guidelines for tacticals. I know some of you have the Jagers, and wouldn't have thought it unusual for Chaz to use ex Russian Moisin nagants (for those of you who have FAC's).
John has got a wide range of weapons that would fit the theatre M16's,AK's,RPD's, M60,PPsh's not unusual to see M1 carbines and I have seen a photo of SOG with a thompson M1a1!!
The costing is 30 quid for the weekend (which covers the land rental,pyrotechnics,insurance etc etc) plus your weapon hire (if you need one) which is normal for any era tac event (I know John has tried to keep his costs for weapons and ammo the same and I haven't put up the registration fee in 2 years).
I understand that some of you are students and have tight budgets - I do this as a hobby for re-enactors like myself (and I have a low paid job) so I save for 2 tacs a year and then attend the usual shows. You don't have to hire a weapon we have guys who just bring a deac or airsoft - you can still participate in a full immersion living history weekend there is always a role for you.
Our lot,VC/NVA units, Marine recon, and the 101st guys have booked their weapons (those who need 'em) please post up if you are likely to be attending from the Air Cav and email John Oxlade if you need to. For those of you who are wanting to set up NDP's after dark (which is most of us!) if you want to bring your airsoft weapons with "tracer rounds" that should look spectacular along with the bangs and surprises I can put on for you!!!!
names on the list please guy's
Thanks to Aircav bosses for supporting this - remember we do this for each other!!
