    Background:

    In late 2013 the Manitobian army led a successful coup d'etat to overthrow the oppressive far right regime of former dictator Gustav Merlingo. After a group of soldiers loyal to General Pantos marched alongside the civilian population to government buildings, forces loyal to Merlingo stood down and refused to open fire or oppress the revolution. In just a matter of weeks the Merlingo regime was toppled. After a decade of oppression the new regime governed by military generals, promised to return a fair share of the country’s wealth and resources to the people.

    One of the first acts of international tension came when the new government decided to cut all ties with western multinationals who they believed had been taking advantage of Manitobias rich oil and natural gas deposits. General Pantos declared that ‘the capitalistic nature of the west would no longer leech the blood from the Manitobian people’.

    In the months that followed Pantos increased military spending and paid particular attention to the strengthening and improving of the special operations element of the Manitobian army known as Grupo de Acciones Especiales (Special Actions Group or SAG). Pantos made sure that SAG commandos were provided with the best gear available and made an emphasis on counterinsurgency and unconventional warfare tactics as he believed these skills would be detriment to the protection and stability of the new state.

    On June 17th 2014 Manitobian Special Operations Command (MSOC) obtained advanced information that a black operations group of unknown origin was on route to cross the border into Manitobia. This unit has been codenamed Black Tango. MSOC have green lighted SAG for insertion into the area and SAG command are readying vehicle support for immediate action.

    How are bookings being taken?


  • Registered Users Posts: 107 ✭✭ Borderlands


    Deposits are taken through paypal CpcRc. We have a limited number of places available so it is a first come first serve basis. Any other questions I will be happy to answer. Probably should have had that info on the original post anyway!


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 984 CpcRc


    Whose PayPal? Is it bellurgan or someone else? So to book a place do we pm someone and then send PayPal payment?
    The only event I had to book before was rionegro last year but i won't be going this year and I would like a milsim this summer and this one looks good.


  • Registered Users Posts: 107 ✭✭ Borderlands


    A deposit of €30 is required to secure your place. This deposit can be made payable to the Bellurgan Park site owners Paypal account tomorrow at 8pm sharp.

    After you complete your paypal transaction you will then have to fill out a short registration form which will be posted up here as well as on our facebook page and you will then be confirmed as 'booked in' on our system.

    We have some great plans for this one alright so you wont be disappointed ;)


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 984 CpcRc


    If ye post up all the details tomorrow like the paypal email address and stuff I'll send it through.

    We will be implementing some new MilSim medic rules for this one. Please make sure you are up to date with all the rules as well as some more subtle changes. Ignorance of the rules will not be accepted as an excuse for breaking them. Rules can be found here - http://airsoft.bellurganpark.ie/milsim-rules/

    Umm, for some reason your website link was overwritten to be to one of the patch images. Working link to events page is here

    Edit: Nvm, looks like ye saw it


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 984 CpcRc


    Submitted the pre-booking. I choose rifleman as preferred role, but don't mind taking either of the others on the day if needs be.


  • Registered Users Posts: 107 ✭✭ Borderlands


    Due to multiple requests and some players not able to attend we have changed the timings from a 27 hour to a 12 hour event. The premise of the game will still be the same and we can guarantee you will still get the full MilSim experience. We will then have a BBQ and beers around our new sign in shed and fire pit into the early hours for those who wish to stay for the craic and banter. Game fee will be reduced to €30 for the event. Hope to see you all there. Thanks everyone.

    There is a good reason for this, its the cost of head gear Vs. having to buy a new uniform for events, so while not everyone likes this rule, its smart as the worst case is having to buy head gear

    I'm a fan of this simple rule :)

    I thought you said you were starting to come around to it after the last event? ;)

    Heres a link to uniform requirements, back ground story and other relevant info - https://docs.google.com/document/d/1IXGkAP56fS-3N189aQDu45Jb_cXDg7E1rc5G1npEaRw/edit?usp=sharing

    I'm sorry, but I don't agree. That's fine for beginners, but it doesn't wash for MilSim. If you can buy two bags of BBs you can buy a uniform.

    And you don't have to be a pattern whore like me, just the one will do you :)

    As for the last event, I had a great time. I fcuking love science Bellurgan. But I always end up getting shot first because I can't make out what the other person is wearing and whether I'm supposed to shoot them today or not. So I just try to go with it and have the best day possible. I'd still like it changed. Just my 2c.

    This is Airsoft, people wear the BDU/Uniform they like/want to wear and MilSim or not, no one (myself included) is happy to be told otherwise ;)

    Also, how will just one set do, as there are many events and each has its own set of rules, with varied BDU/Uniform requirements


    My advised about getting shot first is to play more CQB/FIBUA, this will greatly improve target acquisition and reaction time :)

    Hey guys, I have contacted ye on facebook on getting my deposit back as I am no longer going. My first message was sent sunday and seen but I got no reply. I sent another message last night.

    Wear something Tan or wear something Green. How hard can it be?

    Hmmm. I don't seem to have any problems with FIBUA in Sennybridge, Copehill or Eastmere. Perhaps it's the light.


    Anyway, sorry to BPA for hijacking the thread. Out.
