What an amazing weekend and cheers to all the guys for making such an effort to look the part.

US deployment
2IC Captain J Mallett

Alpha company

1st Platoon - Lazy company
2nd Platoon - The Infadels
3rd Platoon - Mymadons

First time I have ever seen a full company of men and it was awesome.

NVA/VC deployment
OC - Jong Sming
2IC - Mo Mo
10 men and woman of honour

Saturday consisted of training in the morning the 2 a long Op in the afternoon that took 5 hours.
Sat night was heaving at the Cinema tent with movies, music and booooze.
Sunday saw a raging battle over the sniper tower and an MG emplacement and then an evac to a second LZ for Alpha Company.

feel free to add you stories and pics;)

thanks to all for making this a weekend to remember and setting such a high standard from the off.

Hi guys,

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

Paul
Lazy Co, Rangers Lead the way!

Waltzing Matilda....waltzing matilda.

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

Howdy

just wanted to say had a fanstastic game with all you fine blokes. Josh and his team should be proud of what they accomplished in such a small time with the reddich SNAFU.

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!"

Oh man! What a weekend. I was truly broken by the time I got home last night (sorry Josh, no energy for Rainbow 6). Too many good moments to recount to be honest, although i think I'm slightly more deaf in one ear from my AK wink.gif

That was a truly wicked weekend, fantastic battles and a really good feeling of "being there".

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?

Mole out.
"Morale seems good, considering. But that will only last as long as the ammunition holds out. Although high spirits are just no substitute for eight hundred rounds a minute, but I don't think that's what you wanted to hear."

G'day
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.

We are now up against live, hostile targets. So, if Little Red Riding Hood should show up with a bazooka and a bad attitude, I expect you to chin the bitch.

Awesome weekend guys, I'd happily only play four games like that a year over a normal skirmish every week. It'll be hard to go back to that now hehe.

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 biggrin.gif!

Will.

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.

Utterly seconded. I've played at many sites, nothing comes close to last weekend mate.
