There will be an event fee of $10 to cover insurance costs, which are provided by TMHS.  Please bring a $10 bill, so we don't have to try and figure out how to make change for a bunch of $20s.  Or bring $20 and half of it will go towards helping pay for the Porta Johns. 

Due to the rough terrain, we will be camping in and around the modern barn on the property.  Period style camping is not necessary at this event, so bring whatever you would like to be comfortable.  There will be an area to pitch modern tents, and everyone is more than welcome to bring a cot or sleeping bag and bunk in the barn.  There will also be an area for a period style camp near the barn if you would prefer.  Allied and Axis forces will be sleeping in the same area for the sake of safety and convenience.

Bring your own food/rations for the weekend.  Please also bring at least 3 gallon jugs of water.  It will likely be very hot, so be sure to have enough water to stay hydrated.

Saturday morning all forces need to be up and ready for combat by 7:00 am.  There will be a briefing to go over all the rules and make sure everyone is on the same page for the day.  The Axis forces will then be inserted into the battle field and prepare their defenses.  By 8:30am the Allied forces will take the field and the battle will begin.  It will be the Allies job to attack and take each key point that the Axis forces are holding.  Once taken, the Axis forces will fall back to the next key point and the battle will proceed.  It is expected that we will continue the scenario into the afternoon, so be prepared for the hot weather and bring plenty of ammo for sustained operations.
There will be Porta Johns on site for this event.  Please bring around $10 to donate to the land owner to help pay for the rental fees.  He is really great to be providing these for us, so we need to be able to help keep his costs down so we can continue to have events here!
