November 8th, Scrimmige Day

Okay, so we had alot of fun last weekend and we’re going to do it again. We had a good turnout, but would always like more players. We will start gameplay some time around 1100; I will be out there about 1030 to get the fire going. End time will be up to the players, probably around 1400 or 1500 (I have somewhere to be at 1600) If people want to keep playing that is fine.

For those of you who have not been out to the Whiskey Creek site it is located at the end of Gossett Rd, west of Joyce about 5 min. Drive to the end of Gossett Rd, and turn right just past a lumber mill on the hill (also to your right). You will be on a fairly rough road, and some cars have a hard time from here, so if you want to park at the pull off that is fine. Walk or drive down the straight gravel road just to the left past the mill to my white Jeep and you’ll see a road leading up in to the woods on your left. If your driving park off the road to the left, some people drive farther in. Follow the road up, staying to the left at any intersection. Most likely you will see the smoke from my fire and that is where we will be playing. We have one larger bunker built, one in the making, and some fox holes in place. The site is 20 acres of forested land, with another 20 acres adjacent to it we can use as well. I suggest BDU’s or other forest type camo. ACU, DCU, and other tan camos will stick out like sore thumbs

Everyone is welcome and encouraged to come, but we do ask you pick up your garbage (including cigarett butts) when you leave. Most things can just go in the fire. Remember this is private property the owner is letting us use free of charge. If you want to bring hot dogs or something to cook or heat over the fire feel free.

If you have questions email me at: lbrown_prez1619cd@yahoo.com, or call me at 452 – 5931. This week it would be better if you called. Of course you can leave a comment here, and any D7 member attending can answer your question.

November 1st, General Scrimmige Day

On Sunday November 1st there will be a few of us playing out at Whiskey Creek. This will be more of an informal game play day with just general scenerio based play to have some fun. We will start play some time around 11 am; end time will be up to the players, probably around 2 or 3.

For those of you who have not been out to the Whiskey Creek site it is located at the end of Gossett Rd, west of Joyce about 5 min.

Walk or drive down the straight gravel road just to the left past the mill to my white Jeep and you’ll see a road leading up in to the woods on your left. If your driving park off the road to the left (there should be other cars there to guide you) Follow the road up, staying to the left at any intersection.

Boots on the Ground

Most people would say their airsoft rifle is the most important item they bring to the field.  Reaching back to the dawn of battle I will say this is wrong. Your ability to move, and stay in the game, depends on your feet.  Your feet depend on your boots, and so your most important item you bring to every game is your boots.   Notice I didn’t say shoes, you need boots.   Get a good sturdy set of boots that won’t let you roll your ankle the first time you jump in a hole.   The brand isn’t important; the price isn’t either, but make them something that will protect your ankles and feet.  By investing in a good pair of boots,  you can make the rifle work for you, and contribute to your team’s success.   A player who moves better than his enemy can out manouver somone with a better gun, and get in close for the kill.  You will always find someone with a better gun, that is just part of the game.  Learn to out manouver your enemy.  Do not rely on your gun to win the fight, your mind is the most powerful weapon you have.  Your boots will get you there.

See you on the field,
L. Brown
