So is this on top of the Ground Zero NAE Weekender, BritTac Weekender at Copehill Down (immediately after their multimillion pound renovation) and the Gunman Innovations Weekender all on the same weekend already?

 

Not only are all 4 in the South East several are already very well established.........

Bank Holiday weekend that's why

I realise that, but 5 weekender events, all within a circle just over 70miles radius from central London. (Except NAE which is 100ish). Not only that Lydd is the furthest south east of them all so potentially many players will drive past other events to get to Lydd.

And it's the weekend after AI500, so that strikes 2 off my list for the bank holiday weekend :P (NAE after 3 years ago, never again. And Stirling as I'd rather not do the same site twice in a week)

True, but the big attraction of Lydd is that it is an MOD FIBUA village, you rarely get a chance to play on one that isnt involved with a MilSim company event, certainly main reason I am going.

Well that's local. Any idea if they hire or allow modest two tones? Website is a little thin on info

Don't know mate - for more info best bet is the Facebook page which is a LOT better info wise than the website

 

Don't think they are too bothered by guns its more having proper colours for each side, so desert vs green or civvie load out basically. I am bringing a spare gun that you potentially could use if they don't allow 2 tones

When you say there aren't many chances to play Lydd other than Milsim events is that because it's not well publicised that two companies either have or have had monthly access to Lydd's Serial 40, Elite Action Games (EAG) and Elite Battle Zone. EAG its 1 Sunday a month since December and the deal I believe is for a year.

 

By the way I'm all for more events etc, I just find it hard to wrap my head around the business models that have caused 5 fairly large events to take place all in roughly the same area of the country on the same weekend. And that had they been more spread out there are many people, myself included who would play more of them.

 

eg. I was booked on the BattleTac weekender at Copehill when it was supposed to be back in May time. I'm going to GZ that weekend because its a team tradition and the largest turn out for us every year. I'd love to play Lydd but the dates for EAG have always been out or booked up well in advance. I've only just done a weekender at the Sandpit and would love to do another and I would like to give a Stirling game a go but its way too soon for another one.
