Just wanted to add a big thanks for one of the best airsoft weekends I've seen. Fantastic effort from everyone on kit, team work and the added bonus of the radios, fire missions, mortars really made a full on immersion into the Tudder"nam" experience.
Thanks to the CIA "VC/NVA" team, sneaky little so and so's in the bushes today, well played by all on the VC/NVA side, and the final push and fight you gave us to the LZ Bravo was a experience in itself.
Try and get some photo's from our combat photographer onto the site as soon as we can.
See you all soon

G'day. Thanks to all our Yankie cousins for training so hard with us Aussie 'grunts'.
Honestly thanks to all for some excellent training and some brilliant and intense gaming. It has really made me look forward more so to the main event.
And thanks to Josh and the crew for being really tough VC and for putting this weekend on.
And here are some 'vintage' photos

Probably see you all again in country in may time hopefully. That is if I dont have PTSD, I still hear the cries of "tsingtao!"

thanks to all who made this weekend happen, it was my first vietnam airsoft event, and i absolutely loved it!
see you all at the main event next year
Posted 26 October 2009 - 07:29 PM
A BIG thank you to the VC, who must have spent the whole time running around like loonies keeping the US and aussies busy.
A VERY BIG thank you to Josh for putting this event on at his own cost, we really appreciate it and are 100% behind you for the main Ia Drang event. I had no issues lobbing in some dosh for pyro, I didn't get to fire any of them myself, but they sure added to the awesomeness of the event.
Jonny boy, a pleasure to fight with you, I believe the team are happy for you to tag with us any time you're down at tudds.
One final thing Josh, are you going to open up a discussion thread on the event and how the rules worked?

Just to say thanks to everyone for making the weekend a great experience. Had a great time and it was down to so much effort on the part of organisers and players alike.
Josh and the rest of the gunman team worked SO hard and certainly made it a weekend to remember. If this is a 'small' taster, I can't wait for La Drang.

Well done to the VC/NVA iam sure i was seeing u lot all other the place.
Nice working with all on the US & Australlian side and look forward to the La Drang weekend next year.

Also thanks for everyone's feedback on the 'nades and ideas you put forward for other props etc. They were all cracking suggestions and have all been taken on board. See you in April !

Just want to say I completly agree with the above and want to say thank you for a brilliant weekend.
I also want to say thank you to all of the US (and Australlian) forces for what was an exciting two days it was a pleasure to fight beside you.
To the VC/NVA thank you for hitting us so hard so often (that sounds wierd) it felt like there were hundreds of you and you always seemed to know when we were low on ammo or had sent some lads off to remove there bandages.
Finally to Josh and the other Gunman folks thanks once again for a brilliant weekend and introducing our team to a new level of excellence when airsofting, normal airsoft just wont be the same.
