Default CAN-AM Battleday June 11/11






Mark your calenders now for the June 11th CAN-AM Battleday. I hope we can have a big turn out and start having some good IR battles (ie teams, scenarios, objectives, etc).

Also our field is really starting to shape up with, so maybe we can run a tank obstacle course. We are still in need of some 1/18 German Aircraft and a Hanger. I am also actively pursuing a Shed to store any buildings we don't want to cart back and forth.

New Time: 11am to 4pm

Bring a lunch

Bring your lawn chairs

Bring your tanks

Bring a friend to brainwash into joining the club!

I hope to see everyone there.

Glen, could you bring your battery charger?

Yeah, I see that.

I am watching the weather close, the motorcycle dealership in Burlington i deal with is having an open house that I want to go toi on Friday & Sat., so I am taking Friday the 10th off to go, so I can be around here for the tanl meet on the 11th.

Rain would cancel my ride but I will still take a chance on the weather on the 11th for the tank meet.

Lets hope they are wrong for Sat. with the weather predictions.

Hmmm. They are still calling for scattered Thunderstorms.


Well since this month's turn-out looks to be poor, we can still run a few tanks if anyone shows. I am not going to cart out all the buildings incase it rains, but I'll bring the trees.

I'd like to shoot a promotional video soon to post on Youtube to attract new members.

I plan on being there, regardless.

I figure we'll make the best of whatever opporunity presents itself, weather-wise.

I will bring the DBC equipped Stug III and a few other "tracked vehicles"

I mowed the field tonight. The hedge-rows are coming along nicely and the ground has totally dried up to almost concrete.

I also found a Garden shed for $150, but I'll keep looking for something free, unless the club wants to go in on the $150 one.

Nothing but Thunderstorms forecast for tomorrow. I think we had better call this one off.

Ok, well I will still go out to the field today at 11am to shoot some video and test out tanks with Glen.


We can try again for next Saturday if more people can attend. Does that work for you guys?

I'll still come out today, might just travel a bit lighter.

If we get to do a video, besides my Stug III, are there any preferences for the video between my Tiger I, Panzer IV F2, Panther G or Jagdpanther?


In case anybody doesn't have this link, I find it useful to use to check what is going on with the weather;

Glen,

Bring your best looking tanks. I am bringing my Panther and Sherman, the trees and a bridge.

Next week, lets try and invite a friend out else we are going to have to resort to other methods to increase our membership.

Once I get the SLU in my Tiger, I'm hoping to join you guys. I can't say I will be their every Battleday as it's a 4.5 hr drive each way.
Do you guys have any member between Windsor and there that would like to carpool?

I also have a couple of buidings and stuff I could bring.

Well apart from the few drops of rain at 11am, it could have been a perfect tank day. Glen and I ran tanks for about 2.5 hours and made a bunch of video.

We can try again for next Saturday 12-4pm if you guys want.

The field is evolving nicely (although it is bare of buildings and trees in this pic)

Tim may correct me here, but I think he just beat paths with a weed whip, they can take the blades of grass right down to the soil.
