Re: Jeremiah Poppenbeck – System Referee Candidate

Jez, I'd have to think about that. It's worked pretty well over the ten years of the game with people just knowing that I'm effectively Corsham technical stores. I think "booking out" props to specific players might be rather clunky. Just be aware that the kit is there. I can certainly catalogue wha...

Re: Jeremiah Poppenbeck – System Referee Candidate

If I can add to that, since I've been referenced, I always bring far more kit than I could possibly use in the course of an event. A lifetime of working in technical engineering fields has allowed me to accumulate a mountain of instrumentation, most of which is now redundent, overtalen by micros but...

Help!

Electical/electronics people outy there. I'm looking for a zero insertion force connector that back in the day was known as a "Smiths connector". It was an in line connector in the form of a cone shaped plug & a vee shaped socket both of which held metal fingers that "wiped" on contact. Google et al...

Re: Formal Apology

If It's any consoloation, Dom, I did not notice anything untoward. Of course, that could just mean I wasn't paying attention. :D We all make mistakes, chap.

Re: Fundraising for Help for Heroes

UPDATE ON PRICES

I hadn't realised how expensive "up to half Field Textiles prices" could be. I knew that they were the official Army Surplus site, so it seemed reasonable of the top of my head. Having had a look now, I'm revising pricing to "any reasonable offer".

Fundraising for Help for Heroes

I have acquired (legitimately) a large amount of issued, mainly Dpm clothing (list here https://www.dropbox.com/s/ob5uahx0z7ros7i/list%20of%20available%20kit.docx?dl=0) I propose to sell this to raise money for Help for Heroes. I'll take up to half the Field Textiles price for any of it, depending o...

Re: For sale

I have two wire frame army camp beds to dispose of, if anyone is interested, I can bring them to the post Christmas game, or they can be collected from Hinckley. Also, now I have my Landrover, I no longer need my box trailer. It's in need of a good rub down & re varnishing & possibly some joints re ...

Re: Event in Denmark?

1) Cost isn't critical for me. The logistics of the journey is more important. How difficult is it to transport airsoft guns across all the borders/fly with them? 2) Indoor accomodation to avoid having to transport camping kit, or pre erected tent. Good kitchen 'cos of my wheat intolerence. 3) Exten...
