The Ardennes Offensive 1944 IHA Tactical Event Nov. 14 - 16, 2008
« on: September 08, 2008, 04:07:26 PM »
The members of the Illiana Historical Association are having a WW2 tactical event to be held at Rice Woods near Koontz Lake,Indiana on the weekend of November 14-16 2008.

This event is open to reenactors only. Pre-registration is mandatory!

No walk ons!

Our goal is to provide an authentic WW2 event with the senerios being played out in terrain closely resembling that which is mostly historically correct.

This is a primative site with outdoor toilets,a small HQ
building/kitchen/ warmingcenter, hand pump well(naturally spring fed well-no sulfur taste),a large picnic shelter, and 15 or so huge
campsites. Terrain has hills, a dried up swamp,valleys, hard packed dirt roads, and heavily wooded with huge trees. 132 acres all at our control.

Each unit will be assigned objectives and expected to work with
friendly units to obtain them.This will be a fluid tactical event
with orders subject to change dependent upon the scenerio as it
unfolds.We have scheduled two scenerios morning and afternoon.

The IHA canteen will be open for a continentel breakfast and lunch.
(Food and beverages are free, compliments of the IHA).You may also bring your own provisions or eat at one of the many resturaunts in the area.

Period campsites are plentiful, free fire wood at each site.(all
fires must be attended and extinguished before check out)
You may arrive at 1300 hours friday November 14,2008
All IHA safety and authenticity rules will be strictly enforced.
Copies are available upon request and are posted on our website at
(illianahistorical. com)

We have approval for a limited number of light ww2 vechicles and
small tracked vechicles also. Half tracks OK.

The event fee is $20.00.Make checks payable to the IHA.
All class 3 owners should file the appropriate forms with the ATF.

The address of the event is:
Rice woods, 1100east/600north, Groverton, Indiana.

Contact: Rich Gratt at 219-746-4332 or 219-671-4678.

2 weeks left until the event. We have a great turn out. There will be jeeps and weapon carriers attending also. Great for the terrain we have at this site. The work weekend turned out great. We got everything cleaned and ready to go. If anyone is planning on attending you can email your name or names to heervint@yahoo.com  or panzer2iha@yahoo.com. If need be you may also contact the IHA by phone. (219) 746-4332.
