Anyone elses legs super tired?

What a day.
Special thanks to Ian/Alec/John for being good impression competition competitors. If I did end up losing Id rather it be to you guys then some random person.

You didnt miss out on prizes though. I got a can of duster gas (what am I gonna use this for?) and a calendar.

Oh well, free stuff.
Pics coming soon.

Feet are a bit sore, but I'm feeling great.

Picked up a nice training knife for real cheap and a jacket for cheap too Smile
Sold 2 items out of 3, aint too shabby.

Had a blast, lots of interest lets hope some actually follow through.

Can't wait for more events, it's always a pleasure hanging with you gents.

My traps always feel like they are going to collapse after the convention because of the webbing.

Its always nice to see everyone after a long winter, and to see some newer members come out to this.

In some ways I am glad they don't have much geared toward us, as it would suck up all the kit money. See you guys in April.

Hey guys,

thanks to everyone that came out... Will, Ian, Alec, Gareth, John and Rob. Sam, you don't count because you came in Nam gear. Wink I felt a little out numbered with three CanPara and three Germans and me being the lone 101st... but good to see. Thanks for all your help and as always you guys looked great and made the display even better.

I'm hoping that we didn't scare Will off being that this was his first event. How are the feet?

I only took a few pics and I will get them up as soon as I can.

Congrats goes to Sam for winning the Impression contest but all you guys were awsome... which is why it was hard for the judges to pick. Sam, use the Duster to clean off your computer keyboard.

Also thanks to Ian, John and Rob for the donations to the cause... always greatly appreciated.

We had some great interest as we always do but we'll see if it changes our numbers any. All we can do is keep putting our selves out there and hope that more people catch the WWII bug.

Now that the 2011 season is officially started get out there and sign up for the events.

Ahaha you guys didn't I had a awesome time. I felt the same as Ian, I wanted to collapse when I went home. Those damn ammo boots sure want to murder you but my feet are fine today acually.

The convention was fun, meet alot of nice people interested in WW2, hope our influences can interest them in joining us.

It was nice to meet Sam, John and Rob. You guys are awesome and congrats to Sam for winning the impression contest (really you only won a can of duster and a calander? I thought you would get some bbs atleast lol). Great experience as well, I wouldn't mind doing this next year! As well Thanks to Lee, he pretty much talked most of the time!

Does anyone remember this picture?
I look like a goof, Ian looks all serious at Alec whom is looking sad/down.
Sam looks like he's taking a tactical poop or something along those lines.
Must have been taken mid sentence or something.

Well, to me it looks like you're trying to squeeze out a fat fart and it's bringing tears to Ian and Alec's eyes and Sam... well... Sam just looks like he likes the smell!

Looking good lads, good job. Seems like I missed a good one, not to mention the 'incident', whatever happened there.

Hey guys,
Glad you have a great time at TAC-11.
Sorry I couldn't be there. I had to go to emerge on Friday night, with terrible stomach pains. Turns out it was an abdominal blockage, and everything seems to be ok now.

Wish I could have been there!

Grats Sam on winning the Impression contest.

Hey guys, I was getting my gear ready for tomorrows game and realized that I am missing my M3 Trench knife... the one I tie around my boot.

I know I took it off and put it in my bag or I thought I did... I'm hoping that I put it in someone else's bag. Could you guys please take a look and see if you have it with your kit.

Thanks
