I want to say thanks to all the guys that came out and helped out with this event. Ian, Josh, Sam, and John your help was greatly appreciated.

I think we had some good interest but I agree with Ian from another post that I don't think it was as busy as previous years. That might be that there was nothing really new to bring back people that attended the previous years. And there seemed to be less vendors taking more space. I think it's still a good event for us to attend becuase we are looking for the new airsofters that are coming into this hobby and letting them know that there is something different out there.

It was great to have the Lincoln & Wellend group out this year and of course our brothers in reenacting arms, the VN boys, who always look great. And Carl who cost me money but at the same time saved me money. Wink But honey, Carl gave it to me all for free... honest!

Congrats to Souk for winning best History Impression. Nate for best modern impression and Forbes for the best overall impression.

I took some pictures and will post them as soon as I get a chance. Sorry memel no pics of the chics... my wife uses the same camera and I like my balls were they are!

Until next year.

Not a problem at all Lee, if anything thanks is to you for bringing me Smile

Really had a blast would love to do it again next year when my kit will be 100%.

Maybe even a few new toys to drag the crowd in.

Best moments that I still laugh over --
"These real?"
"Nope all Airsoft"
"NO?!?! Really?!?!!!!!"

Souk it's great to have met you, look forward to seeing you on the field with the new patch Smile

Ian - Eh you didn't have your Tompson so yeah it was okay to see you hahaha.

Sam - Great seeing you again man had fun.

Had fun with all the WW2 guys, despite being the only German you were all friendly to me haha!

Can't wait to do it again guys, hopefully we will be seeing some new faces soon.

It is always fun to sweat my bollux off with every one of you, even an impudent Jerry bugger Very Happy I just know that some time soon you will catch me from behind, or take me prisoner after I medic you. I laughed at that guy's reaction as well Josh...the look of amazement was priceless.

Would anyone else like to know Sam's new name? Although he outranks me so I don't think I should.

Hey Sam, I'd just like to thank you for taking those pictures of TAC10, and of the Impression contest. Because I was the first to go, I didn't get to see any of the other guys.. so that sucked.

And GRATS IAN! WOOT! I know you deserve it!

It was great to talk to all of you guys there at the show:

Ian, always good talking to you. And next time you have to enter the Impression contest! You looked great in your Brit uni, but still not as sharp as those khaki M42 Jumps..
Sam, didn't get to see you too much, because you where running around snapping pictures, haha, but but it was great to see you out too! ANd man did those pictures turn out! Thanks again!
Captain, always a pleasure to have a nice cold... water with you. (and good to see you on your feet after your surgery)
And Kaos, It was great to finally meet you, and to talk. Even though you had a TERRIBLE KRAUT uniform on, (but it did look good! haha) I could see the great person you are behind it. AND man.. Thanks soo much for the Screaming Eagle, I personally think thats what put me over the top for the Contest! haha.

I had a great time, and man, to win the Historic as a TRUE shock. I'll keep you guys updated to find out what I win.

And Glen and Rob, I was really disappointed to find out you guys couldn't make it. But I'm SO thankful Rob you weren't hurt in your accident!

I was pissed off all day on Sat that I couldn't make it. I got off lucky and I was just a little sore on Sat. The truck driver said that if I'd hit him a 1/2 second earlier that it could have been a different outcome. Congrats to you guys pulling off a great show. See ya all at the next one. Twisted Evil

Yes, I was cheesed off to miss it too, but it certainly sounds like you did us all proud there.

It saved me some money anyway! Laughing
