So if you fancy a weekend full of madness then join in on the forums at (ask questions etc)

Morning After 7: 4 weeks to go until the annual Arnies Social Weekend!

Operation Morning After

That’s right! Just 4 weeks to go! The welcome packs have been sent out to all who have booked, but there’s still time to take part in one of the friendliest, newbie-welcoming airsoft events in existence!

How many other weekenders give you an opportunity to make friends, shoot your new friends, and then be attacked by shot friends with foam cutlasses?

Key Details in case you have missed:

Core Facts

Venue: Gunman Airsoft, Tuddenham, Suffolk, UK, Europe

Date: Friday July 5th – Sunday July 7th (Gates Open at 5pm Friday but I will aim to be on site from 3ish onwards.)

Green Fee £60 (Including Free Entry into prize draw if 20 bookings received by 31 April)

Facilities: Portaloo & Shop (provided kindly by Gunman), Genny & Charging Facilities. Indoor social / sleeping accommodation in the barn. Camping space is available, and a Travel Lodge is five minutes drive away, as are several takeaways, pubs and a Tesco within ten minutes drive (next to the train station if coming by train).

Game Ideas: Crazy, Arnies themed fast-paced events. If you have ever wanted to play Stalker with carrier bags or take part in a real life forum war shouting out inane slogans while avoiding the wrath of the humourless forum staff, this is the event for you!

Booking & Payment Options
In order to keep the weekend as friendly and ‘intimate’ as always, we’ll be sticking to the tried and tested ‘30 player cap’ rule. To secure your place at the event, you two choices available:

A – Pay now the full amount (£62.32 – £60 + Paypal) (go to http://morningafter.konstipation.com)
B- Pay now a deposit (£31.26 – £30 + Paypal) (go to http://morningafter.konstipation.com) and then pay £30 on gate.

20 people are already booked so we already know this will be a blast – there a maximum of 10 more spaces available. For insurance purposes no walk-ons will be allowed so book if you want to play!

For more information visit the MA7 Forum or PM Marlowe on the forums.

WE Tech – M4A1 AEG

WE logo

Happy Friday guys! and yep, that’s right… They’ve just released their first AEG and possibly many more to come. Introducing their first AEG, the M4A1, with a patented spring decompression function integrated to the safe position of the fire control.

 

Here’s the quick spec sheet given by WE Tech:

Dimensions: 770MM/850MM
Color: Black
Weight: 3050
Thread: 14mm CCW
Body Materials: Aluminum Alloy
Outer Barrel Materials: Aluminum Alloy
Gearbox: Zinc-Aluminum Alloy
Gear Set Materials: Steel
Piston Materials: Nylon polymer 30%
Motor: 8.4V 25000RPM

Hopup: Adjustable
Power: 360-380 fps
Magazine Capacity: 300/400 BB
Package Includes: M4A1-AEG
Recommended Battery: 8.1V-11.1V

 

A review has been written on the forums here. WE has not set a retail price yet but have said it is going to be way under US$200 and rumor has it that it will be similar to G&G’s price but time will tell where the retail figures will actually be. Is this WE Tech’s reaction to the limited supply of China AEGs? What more will WE bring to the market?

 

For wholesale enquiries, please contact sales@weairsoft.com for further information about this product.

Expect this AEG reaching your retail shops very soon within the next few weeks!

Arniegeddon: Forever–Arniegeddon is back this August!

That’s right. The official Arnies Event is back and happening this August!

What is it?

Arniegeddon: Forever is the return of the Arnies community event. A weekend event, the aim is fun and socialising, rather than serious military simulation (although as numerous geardoes attend and all of our brothers in bdus are welcome!).

Games will generally be rapid, fast-paced and most importantly fun scenarios featuring both FIBUA and woodland games. The content while planned WILL be highly flexible, and I will happily arrange new games / shift the focus towards more FIBUA or woodland based around what you all prefer. The aim of the weekend is for you to have fun, so please say throughout the event if you have a preference!

 

Who can go?

ALL members are welcome, whether you have 1 post or 10,000. Arnies regulars and forum staff will be present for you all to meet, socialise with and shoot (yes that includes me!), but the event is VERY newbie friendly and we will welcome new forum members and their friends as much as long term regulars.

 

Where is it?

Based upon the experience of the past 3 Morning After events, Arniegeddon Forever will be run at Gunman Airsoft’s Suffolk site, a former WW2 RAF airfield which features a mixture of urban and woodland, which is easily accessible from major A roads, making it ideal for people across the country. I try to play there as regularly as I can, and I’m from South Yorkshire, so that should indicate how easy it is to access the site!

The site is located at 52° 18′ 12.41", +0° 33′ 57.98" (52.303446, 0.566105 , at an old RAF airfield on Cavenham Road, Tuddenham. When heading down the Cavenham Road from Tuddenham look for a driveway on the right leading across an open field. If you have driven past the quarry on the left, you have gone too far. If heading from the Cavenham side of the road (those of you driving from Bury St Edmund may come this way), look to your left for the site entrance, just after the quarry entrance through the trees on the right.
My awesome (…) road signs will be marking the site entrance once more (more gale force winds / natural disasters notwithstanding). NEW: Google Streetview now has visited the road – please look at this image to see the correct driveway should signs etc fall over!

When is it?

The gates will open at Friday 05/08/11 at 1500, from which point on all are welcome. Game on will comment at 1000 on Saturday 06/08/11, with games concluding at 1300 on Sunday 07/08/11.

 

How much is it? How can I pay?

The total cost of the weekend is £60, payable via PayPal either fully up front or with an initial deposit and payment of the remainder upon arrival. Should you need to use an alternative payment option please contact me and we can discuss alternatives.

To pay please visit the booking thread, where links can be found to the payment system. Please remember when booking to state your forum name so I know who has paid and can add you to the list!

 

If you’ve any questions please feel free to get in touch or visit the Arniegeddon: Forever Facts & FAQ thread. I hope to see you all in August!
