Default ACE/AAF Battle weekend AAF Tank museum March 15-17 2019

First Battle weekend of the year at the AAF tank museum! Get your hotel rooms if needed and get your tanks ready for battle. Come check out the largest indoor IR tank battlefield in the world as well as one of the
biggest military history museums in the States. If you don't have a running tank come check out the battlefield anyway. Occasionally there are tankers that will loan out a tank for you to try if you are thinking of getting into the hobby. As a club we will be running our "Rolling Thunder" Scenario's which try and put an emphasis on team play and more variables in the battle such as fueling, minefields, tank recoveries vehicles, etc. We start out slow and build up the variables over the weekend so all skill levels get up to speed on what we are trying to achieve with these battles, most of all having fun with a great bunch of people. This is a STOCK apple configuration weekend unless it is a fixed structured turret which can run TFA. NO IFA permitted. We'll be doing inspections on all tanks which include:
Stock apple configuration.
Tank takes hits from all 4 cardinal angles.
Tank dies according to class.
On road speed with +2 mph allowance.
Flash and/or barrel recoil.
Apple is not obstructed.
Emitter tube depth and width. Minimim depth of 9mm to bulb and no larger than 6mm ID. These are the same specs as the stock tamiya emitter tube.

If you have any questions feel free to PM me or post up. Here are links to the club page and the museum as well as a cheat sheet for the Rolling Thunder scenario's and a schedule for the weekend.
Looking forward to seeing everyone and hopefully meeting some new tankers!

Its been fun; I'm cooling my heels at the Comfort Inn after a whole day on the field and in the shop buying up parts! Good to see familiar friendly faces and new faces as well. If you guys are ever over on my side of the planet, give a shout and we'll try to put something on for you!

Looks like a good time was had by all! Are any plans in work for next months event? Will it be a more casual battle format, the "rolling thunder" style is a bit over the top for me
Glad you guys had a great weekend, hopefully the wife & I will see you next month,
Larry & Brenda

As always; it was a great time! Drum camp is putting the nix on our 6/29 trip so not sure when we will be able to get back again.

Battles had limited respawns with transports to pick up the disabled vehicles; a lot of fun!
