I remember Harry had 3 guys from NJ that year. It is the same property. We will have our Westfront there in October too since deer season has claimed the other location. Hopefully, 116 will have that farm again in Feb. Most guys really liked the land. 2.SS is a very close unit to us. We are trying to help the Ostfront event go well as best we can. They do plan to move it to VA in the future if it is a success. They have access to a larger piece of land near South Hill.Erich
Here are some things to think about and maybe discuss.3) Ost Front Events need to be advertised to the fullest extent possible. There are some which are invite only and it seems that since there are not enough around this might not be a good idea.
Then you're gonna end up w/ furry rejects from some bad Silly War event just showin' up... Good luck on that "Whuuuuut, I done traveled all the way from Podunk Junction Tennasee fer this event and yer a tellin' me we can't "play" 'cause we ain't got the right kind o' uniforms? The only way to enforce standards (since 97% of events won't just boot farbs out the gate) is to make in invit eonly and so good an event that people will wanna come. Kinda like WW2HPG used to do at Street, MD. Make it a wanna come... and I agree, get some Sov unit to sponsor it as people shy away from event sthey see sponsored by SS units.My 2 Pfennige... Marsh
"Still though how do you get Germans to wear their Russian or other East Front impression instead?"I think that a better question would be how do you get the Ami's and Brits to take on an new and reletively inexpensive impression? Down here in the southeast, at any given ETO/MTO event, Germans are outnumbered at least 5:3. It is my estimation that depending on German reenactors to fill Red Army ranks will tend to doom ostfront events to low turnouts, all the while Patton and Monte's boys are cooling their heels at home. Just a thought.Shane
