One of the best overall events to attend in my opinion.  You can't beat the value, they GIVE you money back !   Its a real decent site, nice mix of woods, roads, and a small "town" made up of shipping containers wiht doors and windows cutinto them.  "Umpires" are a big help, and the weather is USUALLY great.  1st year all was iced over, then snowed heavily, made it better ! l Last 2 years very comfortable ( after a bit of a cold start ! ) during the day.
  If you got a small vehicle, they are of a good use, but don't be afraid to come if you dont. Keep in mind, you MAY have to walk a bit, so if you do an infantry impression.............

John and the others are spot on concerning this great tactical event.  This is one to make.  I hear tell Paul Dolle and his Arkansas krauts will be coming and they always are loaded for bear.

It looks like this will be the largest turnout to date for this event.
We already have 73 registered, and a large German unit has just started to sign up. They are looking at 35-40 of their guys attending. With the 40 or so from the 84th and the 35-40 from the 36th out of Texas, we will have a large group this year. We may also have a few surprises in store, too. Stay tuned for more updates.

If you haven't registered yet for our event in January, please do so as
soon as possible.  We are very close to closing out the Allied
registration.  We are at 123 right now and I will close off registration
to Allies at 150.  I think we only have a few guys left to register.
So, unless you want to sleep on the floor in the Cafe, please go to the
web site and register.

Allied registration is now closed. We have filled all of the barracks spaces in the Allied barracks. We still have a few Axis bunks left, so please register soon if you want to attend.

Thank you to all who have pre-registered and we look forward to seeing you all at Camp Clark in a few weeks.

This is an email with information for the members of the 137th Infantry, most of this is not for the guests of the event but for there own members, but I wanted you to see just what this group has planned and just how much work they are putting into this so that you can have a great time.  papajoad


Soldiers of G Company, 137th Infantry,

I wanted to send out an update on our upcoming Camp Clark event.  Right
now we have a total of 271 registered - 168 Allies and 103 Germans.
That is far more than we had last year (102 total) and it will be a
challenge for us to conduct another quality event for such a large
crowd.  This means we will have most of our unit supporting the event
and very few actually participating this year. 

To start with, I will address the first issue - barracks space.  We only
have 250 spaces in the barracks.  We have 12 people not staying in the
barracks and three females who have their own building.  This leaves us
with six more people than beds.  I don't think we will have a 100% show
up rate, but even still we will be very close on beds.  So, I need all
of you to bring cots if you have them.  We will put these in the one
building we have for our unit (a 12 man building with two man rooms).
We will have to put three in each room to make the numbers work.  If we
don't get the full turnout, we can spread out into the next building and
put everyone in a bunk bed.

The second issue is the work details.  We went over these at the meeting
in December.  With the increase in headcount, we will have to increase
the size of our staff details.  I will have a duty roster at the
registration desk when you arrive that spells out who is assigned to
what duties.  We will have five people at registration, four in the USO
Club, and 13 assigned to MP patrol duties.  Those of you who are MP's
will probably have to help out in the club or registration when you are
not on duty.  We will run nine OC's this year: myself, Joe Taylor, Jeff
Stalnaker, Andy Watson, Jeff Leser, Dan Fullerton, John Wilson, Kendal
Gott (German),and Dave Goodwin (38th Jagers).  We will have three Allied
and three German units, plus two independent recon units (Brit and
Russian),as well as an overall OC (me). 

For the meals on Saturday, we will run four cooks and 10 Servers/KP's.
We will have to feed in two buildings to get the meal served to that
many people in the allotted time.  We will serve in the USO club like we
did last year, but we will also serve out of the admin building across
the road (the one we used two years ago for a mess hall).  Again, those
who are not assigned a mess hall duty will probably be enlisted to help
out anyway.  The only change this year will be the cooks will have to
leave the battle after the second scenario (we will run three this
year).  That will give them enough time to get started on the meal
before everyone comes in out of the field.  Right now the cooks are Phil
Plank, Rusty Elliot, Andrew Turner, and Joe Quinlan.

We also will need to provide more 5 gallon coolers to serve drinks at
the supper meal.  I have one I can bring.  I would like to have at least
three more five gallon jugs.  If you have one and can bring it, please
let me know ASAP.

I will be on site by 0800 to begin the inventory process of signing for
the buildings.  If you can come early to help with the set up, don't
come before 0930 or so as I will probably still be going through the
buildings (nine this year!).

Finally, I need someone who lives near me to help haul the food and
snacks for the club.  Jeff Leser was going to help, but he has a
commitment and will not be able to come to the event until Saturday
morning.  So, I need someone or someones to come by and pick up some of
the items before Thursday night.  Please let me know if you can do this.
The items will need to be there by 1700 or so on Friday if we are to
open the club at 1800.

Sorry for such a long update, but we still have a few loose ends we need
to tighten up before the event.  I appreciate everyone's support and
commitment to making this a quality event.  All I can say is that you
have done a great job in the past and your reputation and that of the
unit has spread to the point where we have become a must-attend event in
the Mid-West.  Your hard work and commitment to putting on a quality
event has definitely been noticed by the reenacting community.  We have
guys coming from as far away as Texas (the 36 ID is chartering a bus for
their unit) and Minnesota.  We will have a large contingent of the
national organization of the 1st SS LAH in attendance as well.  All
together we have 30 different units coming.  I am looking forward to
another great event.

Valor for Service,

Dave Hruska
