Just think "welcome to Rionegro" and not welcome to Tijuana.

Two pieces of news today. First there will be a chip van on site from Saturday evening until Sunday morning.



Second, we need volunteers in each faction to be Anti-Tank Guided Missile (ATGM) Specialists, and Forward Observers (FO) for off site mortar platoons.

The ATGM systems (that's one of our launchers pictured above) can be used to take out vehicles, and suppress bunkers or other high value targets. Mortar fire missions can be used to suppress enemy positions or even to provide support to hard pressed defenders.

We will need at least one 3 man ATGM crew, and about 3 FOs per faction.

More details and information on how to volunteer can be found in the closed faction forums (which I presume all players have registered for already)?

Thanks to everyone who has booked. The event is pretty much full now with about 160 players signed up for the weekend. Other than LARP players (where will will take bookings up to the weekend) we are about to close all registrations.

However, because of cancellations, and as we want to round out a few units we have a few more tickets we can allocate. Exactly which units are available is given below. As these are the last tickets we will handle them a little differently:
  • These positions must be booked by Thursday 14:00 at the latest.
  • The booking form will be updated with the new units, and people can select an alternate as well. We will confirm by email on Thursday what unit they have.
  • Payment will be in full, in cash, on Saturday

The remaining tickets are:
Patriota
  • 2 x ESS PMCs
  • 1 x Heavies
  • 3 x Grupo de Asistencia

Republicano
  • 2 x Hunter
  • 2 x 25th Presidential Light Infantry

These tickets are available now.

Some more information on Mortars and ATGMs.

We need a couple more volunteers for Forward Observer and ATGM specialists in each faction. This is something you would do from time to time in addition to being a rifle man.

Right, bags packed for Rionegro. Last minute props and documents ready.

Weather checked (Friday night showers, Saturday dry and warm, Sunday warm and the odd shower).

Final booking numbers checked (north of 160).

Inbox cleared of player queries.

I think we are just about set. The organising team are looking forward to what should be a great weekend of airsofting.

See you in Rionegro from tomorrow.

Fantastic weekend, very enjoyable. Thanks to all the organisers, players and others involved in a great game. Too knackered to type out all the class moments now. Brought a camera but basically forgot about it. The few I took.

Just out of the shower, and off for beer and food now. I am too shagged to say much. But you won't be able to shut me up for days when I do have sleep.

Right now I just want to say, the Republicanos don't do sneaking around in the night like thieves. When they come for you, they come in force, in broad day light, and they will kick your ****ing doors!

Personally I feel amazingly chuffed that today's (successful) attack on the Patriota base was probably the biggest set-piece Irish Airsoft has seen - there were over 110 players involved in that battle. But more importantly it involved successfully coordinating 4 separate units to come together in a combined assault (infantry, vehicles, and mortars) on a strongly defended and fortified position at a designated time.

That's about as far from a weekend skirmish as you can get.

My hat (red beret, featuring the white star of Rionegro) is off to all who took part. That was bloody epic!
