Hurtgenwald & Ostfront, Dec 3 2011, Enfield NC
« on: September 09, 2011, 02:54:29 PM »
We are pleased to announce the return of Hurtgenwald, but this year we are having it a week earlier to get it away from the Christmas season. We are also having an Ostfront event the same weekend, but on a property to the south.

This event will be a representation of the Hurtgen Forest Battle circa Dec 1-10, 1944, as well as all other Western front battle on the same date. This is a Generic specific battle so all western front unit may attend.

*This year (2011) we are adding a new second battle the same weekend on our Southern Property of just over 100 acres, this event open to Russian, Russian Alles, and German (Invitation only), the event will be the same weekend as the Hurtgen forest Event. This property is about 1/4 mile south of The Hurtgen Forest Property and will add an ambiance of that battle noises to the Hurtgen Forest battle. This will be a seperate event for Ostfront Units , and not an east meets west event.

The registration fee is $25 for reenactors ($20 if received by November 13), and free for vehicle owners. Event is located in Northeastern North Carolina off I-95, about 30 miles south of the Virginia state line.

The event will be primitive camping, so plan ahead, period tentage required. (we will have an area for non-period camping off battlefield property).

Please visit www.hurtgenwald.webs.com for registration and more information. And you can email me, Franz, at killerkestrel@yahoo.com.

No restrictions on pyro (except for the usual don't use something that'll actually blow someone up), but if there is high wind or a no burn order, then ones that could cause a fire are prohibited. Be sure to watch flares so they do not cause fires.

You will be assigned a camping area when you get to registration.

There will be a night patrols with small skrimishes from 8-10:30pm on Friday night for the Western Front side.

Unit meeting on Friday night at 7:30pm. Each unit should have a rep there.

There will be some firewood on site, but it will be mostly provide your own. Our unit usually doesn't bring any, and just scavange from the woods. Usually PLENTY in there.

Weather looks great, clear all weekend with 58/34 on Friday and 50/32 on Saturday, and a high of 54 on Sunday for those camping overnight.
