This event has changed to an East Front event! We had too many conflicts with the date to ensure a good GI turnout.
All Axis, Russian, and partisan groups are invited. This is a generic East Front battle as far as the year goes.
Tactical will run from approximately 10 AM until dusk on Saturday 5/30. There will be objectives for both Axis, Russian, and partisan forces. Event will be held rain or shine. Participants may arrive anytime after noon on Friday 5/29 and depart at their leisure on Sunday 5/31.
DIRECTIONS TO EVENT:
? Travel south on I-81 towards Staunton, VA.
? Take first Staunton exit #225, which is a right turn onto Rt. 275.
? Stay on Rt. 275 for about 7.5 miles.
? Turn right onto Parkersburg Turnpike / Rt. 254.
? This road will turn into Rt. 42 South, and will go through the town of Craigsville.
? 5 miles past Craigsville, look for a sign on the right that says ?Handmade Knives? and/or a sign saying ?WWII Event?. Turn right here.
A lumber yard is across the street from the event site. Once on the property, follow signs to registration.

I'm going to try to make it down with Harry. Do not know for sure if the witch of a principal will let me take a day that Friday or not. If you want will do Romanian and know 2 others in VA that have the basic impression (Harry does also!) if need more on the Allied side if not then will do 4th SS.
Hope to see you there, Romanian will work!
The event date is approaching! Hope to see everyone there!
I was there, and it was quite a hoot! Always fun trying to swat the ruskies, and they do a pretty good job swating back! More than once I got hit in the flank by a mob of running ruskies.
Hope you do another East Front event and decide soon to get the word out a lot faster. Would help with the guys who have a Romanian impression!
