Date TBA - Spring 2012

Location : Muskoka Wolves Primary Field , Bracebridge

“A BRIDGE TO NOWHERE”

Summer 1944..

Allied forces pushing Southward and East from Normandy encounter fierce resistance as they penetrate deeper towards the border of Germany.

German forces have been retreating but resistance to the ALLIED advance has been growing as AXIS forces consolidate.

German forces have been blowing up bridges as they fall back in an effort to slow the Allied advance.

Every bridge has been secured and are well defended while German forces consolidate and roll back to the Fatherland.

Allied units have penetrated the front, and units operate behind the enemy lines to pinpoint the key crossings and facilitate actions to secure them. the allied forces neither want to permit the German forces to retreat over the bridges nor do they want to permit them to destroy them.

Seizing the bridges and holding them until the allied advance can reach them is the preferred approach

Near a bombed out Village a small bridge spans a deep channel, but in the harried retreat of the German Army every crossing is vital. Vital to the Germans moving their remaining forces East, and Vital to the Allies to cut off retreating German Armour.

Mission: Allied Forces

Recce the defenses of the German forces defending the Bridge and develop a plan of attack to seize the bridge and hold it until the Scheduled Advance of the Allied main forces arrives


Mission AXIS forces.

Establish a defense of the bridge and Occupy the nearby village as a HQ for the retreating German forces.
Put the locals to work in improving the defenses.


Civilians : villagers and local farmers are just trying to get by , but many have taken up arms and become partisans working to liberate their occupied homelands, with the invasion of the ALLIED expeditionary forces rumors of the retreat of the Germans and the advance of the ALLIED forces has emboldened many civilians to take up arms against the AXIS forces


This is a “level 2” event in that a “reasonable representation of historical appearance is Expected.

http://www.ontarioairsoftwwiireenactors.com/events.html

Weapons: no modern accessories, all weapons must use “iron sites” All rifles are restricted to Semi auto Fire only

Sub machine guns may use select fire

machine guns must be actual support weapons and must be fired from a supported position.

AXIS troops armed with actual reproductions of select fire "Strorm weapons" may use them.

Gear: no “MOLLE” gear , simple “web gear” belt rigs are permitted , Plate carriers and load bearing vests are not permitted

Clothing: Allied Reproduction or orginal clothing and gear is desired but the following is permitted. American- OD, British / Canadian OD , DPM camo Smocks are permitted
Black coveralls are also permitted.

AXIS : Reproduction or Original clothign and gear is desired But the following is permitted Grey, Flectarn Smocks are permited

Civilian / Partisan : this is by far the easiest to make a representation of “historic clothing”
pants, Brown wool or Cordory , a collared shirt, Blue, or earthtones , A waistcoat, or vest , or woollen or "tweed" jacket. A hat , fedora or “poorboy” cap
Weapons, a pistol, bolt action rifle or a “captured weapon” No gear.

There is lots of time to prepare and work on your impression

Alright boys, this is a great feild so sign up. If you have an ASC account sign up on ASC. If you don't have an ASC account let me know and I will sign you up.

Let get a good turn out for this one! Plenty of time to make arrangements to take the time off and whatever you need to do to make this event. Arrange for a ride, borrow a weapon... so forth.

Hi all,

Just wondering are you guys going over maneuvers or have gone over them in the past? If so, I'd like to catch up.
I am so looking forward into participating in this event and I don't want to stick out like Pvt. Upham. Wink

Throw out advice s'il vous plaît.

We are having a training weekend that you can see in the scenarios section, but the date has not been confirmed. You are of course welcome to come, so if there is a date you would prefer for it, even just 1 day, it helps with the teamwork aspect quite a bit.

If you have a particular weekend you are available post there when and we will see if it can be arranged, as the date is not finalized yet.

Alright guys I know that it's early but let's keep the signing up going. More then half the Germans that have signed up are our members and the majority of the Airborne are our guys as well. But there are still a lot of guys that have not signed up as of yet so get on it.

I'd like to see at least 10 Easy Coy boys attend this event and at least 8 British 6th/1 CanPara.

As for the Germans... get your asses signed up!

I'm going to sign up for this event, but I can go as 6th para or grossdeutschland German. Can you guys let me know which uniform you need out there the most, so that I know which one to sign up under.
