Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 51 2016

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

Another great weekend at Eversley – everyone really got involved with the story and silly costumes were the order of the day.  Thanks to all who came and supported the weekend.

So this weekend is Christmas (in case you weren’t already aware…) so we won’t be running anything over the weekend.
We will be putting on a special one day skirmish on Tuesday 27th December, for our annual “Who Ate all the Pies?” event – a chance to burn off some of those excess calories you might have eaten over the weekend.  It’s a bank holiday and is already looking to be a huge event.  If you are lucky enough to get any new kit for Christmas, this is the perfect opportunity to come down and show it off.

The following weekend is New Year’s so again, we are not running.

We will be kicking off the new year’s gaming at our Norwich site on Sunday 8th January – please come and support us on the site – it’s an awesome chunk of woodland with a load of features, it also has excellent safe zone facilities with plumbed toilets and a caterer on site.  All hot food is bought fresh prior to cooking, so must be ordered via the event page on our website.

Enjoy your weekend, we’ll see you all soon.

Regards,

Josh Smith


Build/Clearup Day at Tuddenham

Build/clearup day:  We will be running a build/clearup day at Tuddenham on Saturday 7th January.  If you are free to help for a bit it would be much appreciated.  We will keep the tea and coffee running all day, and everyone attending will be given a free game at any of our standard open days during January.

We are looking for people to help sweep out the buildings, continue using materials to build more cover, clear up rubbish, paint and build in the safe zone etc.  Any help is appreciated – if all you can manage is coming along and sweeping a building out then you’ve still been a massive help.  We will be on site all day, if you can just pop in for an hour or two, your help will be very much appreciated.

UKAPU Event Flyer

UKAPU Annual General Meeting at StrikeForce CQB

United Kingdom: Matthew Furey-King, Chairman of United Kingdom Airsoft Players Union (UKAPU) and Vice-Chairman David Weston, today announced that UKAPU will host a private game open to all UKAPU members and the Annual General Meeting (AGM) at StrikeForce CQB.

The AGM will be an opportunity for all UKAPU members to raise subjects for the agenda, elect committee members, and shape the future of UKAPU for airsoft in the UK.

“The UKAPU AGM is the event we hold every year, at which we sit down with members and talk about the future direction of the association, and airsoft,” explained Chairman Matthew Furey-King “Many airsoft associations have come and gone but UKAPU has been the only one to hold an AGM every single year. That’s something I’m very proud of. It’s a very important part of maintaining transparency and democracy. It’s one of the reasons we are able to call ourselves representatives. “

“All committee positions are open for election, and anyone can raise a discussion point. We actually have some positions with no nominated candidates, so email our secretary if you are interested in helping us push UKAPU forward. This year we decided to combine the AGM with a private members’ day at StrikeForce CQB site in Gloucester. All UK airsoft players are welcome to join UKAPU for free on our website. We’ll hold the AGM in the safe zone. It’s looking like a really friendly fun game is shaping up, with a few airsoft celebrities coming too. I look forward to seeing you there.”

Any and all members of UKAPU can add an amendment to the AGM and put themselves forward to become a member of the committee, please submit any questions to secretary@ukapu.org.uk

StrikeForce CQB, hosts of the private game, are located at:

Morelands Trading Estate

Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 40 2016

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

We’re back at Tuddenham this weekend for another FilmSim style event based on the Division game.  The JTF and Division agents will be fighting the criminal Riker gang for control of the warehouse district.  Multiple objectives will be issued over the weekend for both sides.

Camping is available free of charge from Friday night and we will be having a mini-social on Saturday night with movies etc.  There is a BBQ available on site, so bring some food to chuck on if you’re staying over.

Please note – there will be no night game this weekend as we are putting a special event on at end of month for Halloween (see below for details).

Next weekend we are back for another FilmSim weekend at Eversley – this one is a continuation of our Ghosts series.  As usual, free camping is available from Friday evening with a very social club feel to the weekend.  Full catering on site.

We will be running our epic end of month skirmish weekend at Tuddenham as usual with a social on the Saturday night – we are also putting on a special game on the Friday night which will be a survival style game played over the whole site.  Players will take turns being survivors or freaks/mutants/zombies/psychos/whatever, so try and make the effort and dress up if you can.

Regards,

Josh Smith

Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 39 2016

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

What a fantastic turnout we had at Tuddenham at the weekend!  With over 60 players each day and some excellent gameplay this was an awesome event.  Thanks to everyone who attended.

This weekend we’re taking a break, and will return next weekend at Tuddenham for our Division themed FilmSim weekend.

The following weekend we are back at Eversley for a continuation of our “Ghosts” story.

October’s end of month skirmish weekend couldn’t be complete without some kind of freaky Halloween night game action, so we will be putting on a special event on the Friday night.

Obviously, we will also be running our usual skirmish madness on the Saturday and Sunday, along with a social on the Saturday night with movies and a BBQ.

Don’t forget that we will be returning to Top Dog Paintball’s site near Norwich on Sunday 6th November on a monthly basis.

Regards,

Josh Smith



Tuddenham 10th & 11th Sept FilmSim

Using bandages for respawns and limited ammo rules, this is a step up from skirmish without sacrificing the action and fun.  Camping is free from Friday night, we have a BBQ available – just bring your own food and beers.

As we are putting on a Halloween special night game on the end of month weekend (see below) there will be NO night game on the midmonth weekend this month, we will have some cinema action instead on the Saturday night.

Eversley 17th & 18th September FilmSim
We are back at Eversley for a continuation of our “Ghosts” story – the Ghosts must find and destroy a number of weapons caches dotted around the area as well as extracting HVTs where possible.  Camping is free from Friday night, and there is a great social atmosphere on the Saturday evening.

Halloween Night Game – Tuddenham Friday 28th October
October’s end of month skirmish weekend couldn’t be complete without some kind of freaky Halloween night game action, so we will be putting on a special event on the Friday night.

Action will take place over the whole site including the woodland, we highly recommend that you bring a torch with you.  Airsoft guns will be limited to gas, spring and lo-cap mags only to avoid overkill.  Melee weapons and NERF guns are also welcome.

All players will take turns at being freaks or survivors, when a survivor gets ‘got’ by a freak, they become a freak until they manage to grab a survivor, at which point they can return to game as a survivor.  Various objectives will be given such as an unarmed point to point survival run, defending an area and objective retrieval.

The game will start with a safety briefing at 1900 and will last until about 2230 all for the price of £15.  We have a limited supply of weapons available for free rental via a pool on the evening.

Tuddenham 29th & 30th October – Skirmish & Social
Obviously, we will also be running our usual skirmish madness on the Saturday and Sunday, along with a social on the Saturday night with movies and a BBQ.  Camping, as always, is free from Friday night and all are welcome to the Saturday night social including non-players.

Norwich – Sunday 6th November
Don’t forget that we will be returning to Top Dog Paintball’s site near Norwich on Sunday 6th November on a monthly basis.  The site is huge, and has lots of features including a bridge crossing.  For a limited period we are offering a reduced walk-on price of £20 (or £15 with a valid loyalty voucher) so this is a perfect opportunity to come and see what the site has to offer.

Catering is available but food must be pre-ordered to ensure enough is brought on site and prevent wastage – both bread rolls and meat is bought fresh rather than frozen.  Please let us know if you require food.

The 20th Hooha Show – Modify-Tech

Modify have shared a report from the 20th Hooha Show:

Airsoft gun show also a stage for sharpshooters

The 20th Hooha Show in Taipei, held Aug. 26-28, 2016, drew to a thrilling close with the speed shooting contest drawing marksmen from all walks of life having raised the bar.

Jesse Chu eclipsed last year’s 1.63 second record set by Yang Yi-jin by a mere 0.01 second to become this year’s champion, without relenting on the last day of the contest to record 1.63 seconds to win the bonus prize handed out by the CEO—the Modify XTC-G1 Extreme Tactical Carbine valued at about NT$11,360 or US$360.

Jesse deserves another round of applause.

Obviously age is irrelevant to marksmanship for Eaad Edward stole the show by being the youngest shooter to win the second prize with a time of 1.78 seconds—the newest Modify MPI 22T Torque Motor. Incredible performance!

The biggest airsoft gun trade show across Taiwan and HK included many new product launches that even attracted the internationally famous airsoft sniper-Novritsch, who sparked plenty of buzz at the showground.

Players who look forward to seeing newer products from Modify-Tech at the next Hooha Show should stay updated by going to our Facebook page:

Ai500 @Blundeston prison 21st October 2016

Details of the next ai500 have been announced:

Airsoft International are delighted to announce that the next instalment of the ever popular ai500 is to be held at Blundeston prison on the weekend of the 21st October

Welcome to Operation: LOCKDOWN

Following on from the events at the Titan Research Facility, both Mongoose and Viper factions slinked away to tend to their wounds and perform battle damage assessments. The brawl over the facility had been gruelling and bloody with a massive body count.

Although the Mongoose faction had dominated the area for the duration of the intense conflict, the Viper faction had managed, via deceit and cunning, to steal and stow away the fruits of the victor’s labour. A weapon of mass destruction had been intercepted, hidden and spirited away by the bedraggled Viper survivors. With this weapon they would surely look to extract some form of revenge… That is… If they could work out how to detonate it…

Stowed away in the Prism Incarceration Center, a former penal unit, the Mongoose clan sat, contemptuously, knowing that the only way to utilise the weapon the Viper faction had stolen lie in their own commander’s DNA. Of course, with the help of their new scientist allies, the Viper faction finally figured this out and although many attempts to synthesise the genetic key codes required were made, they could not bring the weapon to bear… They would need the blood of the man himself.

The Viper’s mobilised and the Mongoose faction braced for impact…. Operation: Lockdown was about to begin!

About the Venue

The Prism Research Facility is a former multiple category prison built in Blundeston, near Lowestoft in Suffolk, UK. Previously host to high profile convicts such as Reggie Kray and the Shoe Bomber, the prison has an interesting history as well as an interesting structure and layout. From lower security, open population areas to the absolutely bleak solitary confinement wing one thing is for sure, the best way to visit this place is via this one-time only Ai500 event!Sheltered lodgings and ample car-parking space will be made available to a capped limit of 300 players (that’s 150 per team) in addition to toilet facilities and an airsoft shop on-site. Further information will be confirmed as we nail it down.

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

Another great weekend at our Eversley site in Hampshire with nearly 100 players across the weekend again.  Gunman will return to Eversley next month on 20th & 21st August for another FilmSim style weekend and part two in our Ghosts series of games.

This weekend, Gunman is hosting another awesome Okto Eight Milsim event at our Tuddenham site.  Set in the fictitious country of Moldistan, this ticket only event is part of an ongoing series of events set in the former USSR.  There were a couple of rebel player spaces left at the time of writing – if you’re interested get in touch with Okto Eight Milsim on Facebook.

The following weekend (30th & 31st July) we return to Tuddenham for our epic end of month skirmish and social event.  Camping is free from Friday evening onwards and is highly encouraged, we have BBQ facilities, so bring some food and drinks down and join us on Saturday night even if you’re not camping or playing.

Okto Eight Milsim

This weekend, Gunman is hosting another awesome Okto Eight Milsim event at our Tuddenham site.  Set in the fictitious country of Moldistan, this ticket only event is part of an ongoing series of events set in the former USSR.  There were a couple of rebel player spaces left at the time of writing – if you’re interested get in touch with Okto Eight Milsim on Facebook.

We are planning on having a large civilian population in play for the whole weekend to create maximum immersion for the players – we can always squeeze a couple more people in on the crew if you’re interested.  You would be role-playing a non-combatant character, for example a villager, UN aid worker, journalist, tourist in a former USSR country sandwiched between Russia and Europe embroiled in civil war.  You shouldn’t be shot at, but eye protection will obviously need to be worn during the day when weapons are hot.  In the evening, the role-play continues, the guns go away, and the beers come out!

If you’re interested in joining us as a non-combatant crew member, drop an email to doug@gunmanairsoft.co.uk to find out what’s involved.  We don’t charge for non-combatant role-players, as you won’t be getting any trigger time, but you will have a good time and get to see what Okto Eight Milsims are all about.


Skirmish – Tuddenham 30th & 31st July

The following weekend (30th & 31st July) we return to Tuddenham for our epic end of month skirmish and social event.  Camping is free from Friday evening onwards and is highly encouraged, we have BBQ facilities, so bring some food and drinks down and join us on Saturday night even if you’re not camping or playing.

We will of course be playing some airsoft on Saturday and Sunday on our awesome CQB & scrub/woodland areas – games will be dynamic and will last between 30 and 45 minutes each to give you plenty of time to hydrate and reload in between.

Gunman Airsoft newsletter week 28 2016

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

Thanks to all for the huge turnout for the Tuddenham game at the weekend, well over 100 players across both days.  Both the biker gangs and the police put up an excellent battle, with both sides scoring several victories throughout the weekend.

We’re back at our flagship site again in three week’s time for the end of month skirmish social.  We highly encourage people to camp over with us and enjoy the great social atmosphere on Saturday night with a BBQ, camp fire and excellent company.  We are also planning to play some airsoft on Saturday and Sunday as well!

This weekend, we return to our superb Eversley site in Hampshire with part one of our “Ghosts” series.  Using the FilmSim ruleset, teams of Ghost operators will infiltrate rebel camps to secure and extract an HVT from each.  With limited ammo, bandage based respawns and role-play encouraged, this is a great way to experience the fun bits of milsim without sacrificing your lunch break or your trigger time.

As always, camping is free from Friday evening and there will be a social on Saturday night.  If you haven’t given our Eversley site a try yet, this is a great opportunity to sample the mix of pine forest, rhododendron jungle, varied terrain and plenty of player built features as well as the great community and friendly atmosphere we offer.

Regards,

Josh Smith (Gunman Airsoft)

Here is all the latest news from Gunman Airsoft:

Dear Arnies Airsoft news,

Massive thanks to all who supported our gas, spring & low-cap specialist day on Sunday.  The weather was perfect and a great time was had by all once again.  We will organise another one soon.

This weekend, we are at Tuddenham for our mid-month FilmSIM style weekend as usual.  This time we are running a “Biker Gangs of New York” theme – bikers vs cops/SWAT.  Fancy dress is optional, but the more people who get into the role, the more fun it is!

There will also be a game on Saturday evening which is included in the price of a weekend ticket, otherwise it costs £10 on top of a day ticket, or £15 on its own.

Next weekend we are back at our Eversley site in Hampshire with a FilmSIM style event “Ghosts Part 1 – Georgia” where a team of ghost operators will be trying to capture and evac various HVTs from within Ultra-Nationalist rebel camps.  Camping is free all weekend, with a very social atmosphere in the evenings and a BBQ etc, come and join us.

Regards,

Josh Smith (Gunman Airsoft)
