Newsletter - Week 48 2019

Post by GunmanAirsoft » Thu Nov 28, 2019 1:31 pm

Thank you to everyone who came along the Red Mist Cold War Event at Tuddenham over the weekend, once again it was another great event and we are looking forward to writing the next episode for you.

This weekend we are back at Tuddenham for our regular end of month skirmish open weekend. We will be looking to bring the projector along with us for this one for anyone who would like to watch a couple of movies on Friday or Saturday evening with us. Bring a DVD or Bluray if there’s something specific you think we should watch.

Next weekend we begin an action-packed December at Eversley – we will be putting on an open airsoft weekend at either Alpha Site or Camp Bravo EVERY weekend! That’s four full weekends of airsoft to choose from!!!

The first one will be a skirmish at Camp Bravo as usual, then a second skirmish at Camp Bravo the following weekend. After that we have our ever popular two “seasonal” games at Alpha site. The weekend of 21st & 22nd will be the regular Xmas themed FilmSim experience, and the weekend after Christmas will be our annual “Who ate all the Pies” skirmish spectacular to give you a chance to run off all the extra calories from the previous week.

As from January we will be adding a second regular skirmish weekend at Camp Bravo due to growing demand. The regular event will take place on the last weekend of every month, followed by the established event on the following weekend. These new events will be listed on our Facebook page later and will tickets will be available as normal from our website.

On a final note, we feel it necessary to issue a public apology to the users of the Bramshill forest bridleway, tracks and surrounding area near to our Alpha site at Eversley. A trusted third-party event organiser recently hired the use of the site for an historical themed event. Sadly, in breach of their contract with us, a large convoy of period military vehicles including tracked armour left our site and drove around some of the surrounding tracks.

As anyone who has been to the site will know, the surrounding area is heavily used at weekends by the general public for walking, horse riding etc and we have been very careful over the years to minimise the impact our operations have on other users of the forest. We cannot condone the actions which took place at the weekend, both involving the inappropriate use of vehicles outside of the designated area as well as other disturbances – as a result we are sad to have to announce that we will no longer be able to work with the organiser in question.
We will most likely also have to put additional restrictive measures in place for both third-party hires as well as our own special events to reassure the local public and authorities that such a potentially dangerous incident cannot happen again.

Can we also take this opportunity to remind our customers and staff at the Eversley Alpha site that the gravel access road which we use to access the site is a public bridleway which is frequently used by novice and inexperienced horse riders who wish to avoid traffic on the public roads. We are fortunate enough to be able to use it to enable vehicular access to our site, but we all have a responsibility to ensure the safety of everyone in the area. Most of you have been excellent at keeping your speed to a crawl and being courteous to the public, especially when there are children or animals in the vicinity and we thank you for this – it has been noted by members of the public, please continue to do so.
