The U.S. First Army and Soviet 5th Army meet near the Elbe River in Torgau against the Twelfth German Army. Disaster upon disaster piled in upon Hitler and his army. To the west U.S. forces crossed the Rhine and surrounded the Ruhr. To the east Soviet forces knew the Wehrmacht would fight hard to defend German soil, but every Soviet soldier wanted to be the first to reach Berlin.

I will update the team rosters as people PM me with their RSVPs. There is FREE group camping space near the social campfire and the barn barracks for those who want to sleep inside. Bring your own food, water, BBs and charged batteries.
There will be items for sale in the barn. If you have WW2 gear to sell or trade, there will be a extra table to use. Do not wait till the event to ask for special gear. PM your needs ASAP and we will try to help you out.
1. Helmet Rule - Helmets will protect the head from the first BB strike. The second BB strike will kill.
2. Medic Rule - Wounded players can only call for help. Medics can place up to 2 bandages on a players arm or leg. After a 3 minute bleed out with out medical help, players go back to respawn and remove any bandages.
3. Respawn Clock - Each team will have a respawn station with a clock. Respawn time will be from 1 to 10 minutes on 10 min. time blocks marked in blue on the clocks.

Posted by Iron Will on Oct. 01 2017,13:14My sincerest apologies for the no-show. I had intended to inform you all my group would no longer be showing up. My father passed away a little more than a week ago in a tragic accident, and the funeral was yesterday. I hope the event was still good in our absence.
Posted by Hunter on Oct. 01 2017,18:50It looks like you guys had a great turnout, sadly its midterm season down in the kansas group so we're all tied up. Looking forward to some pictures!
