Had today off, went to the doc. to check the knee out, my marathon running days are over (well, I never had any marathon running days, ever  Embarassed ) but I am doing OK.

This aft I took the BMW F700GS (bike) out and stopped in at the tank field.

The field wintered pretty well, but is a good thing we are having an indoor event this month, things are still pretty soggy here...............and, Sat.'s venue has beer.

What if I could get a venue in Kitchener that you could play indoors in the winter, outside field in the summer and beer all year round???

Have just been informed that tomorrows lunch special will be fish and chips! I had a small sample tonight while I was setting up and it was great!

Battlefield is all set up and ready to go... just waiting for the mayhem to begin...

Sounds good, thanks for all the efforts to set this up.

I know all this stuff doesn't just happen by itself.

Found all my batteries and another tank I forgot I had! Shocked  When you start misplacing your tank, I think it is a sign you have to many.

No such thing, bahahaha Razz

I ran out of time charging 'all' my batteries.. I found a few were actually 100% DEAD, Ie. when I put my de-charging light bulb rig on them they didn't light up at all.. a very low-amp trickle charge got them going again. Takes forever Sad

Hi Guys,

A GREAT BIG THANK YOU TO ALL WHO CAME OUT!!!! cheers cheers cheers

Although we only had 8 confirmed and 3 maybes we ended up with 15 plus 5 or 6 visitors! thumbs up

And I just want to say it was great to see Nathan come out. for those of you who didn't get a chance to talk to him he got a day pass from his Chemo at the hospital, went home got his tank and came out and played! My thoughts and prayers are with you Nathan, you can beat it this time just like the last time!


 After an awesome fish and fries lunch and a Clark discussion a couple of guys had to leave and when they had gone we decided to do a group shot as you can see a pretty nice mixture of tanks!


Thank you all for supporting the club and I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible in Toronto May 2nd, Oshawa May 30th and regular battledays through the summer at home field Fort Erie. Good to see you all...spring is finally here!

Video shortly...



Dean

Always a lot of fun to see everyone. I was impressed with all the new tanks, and Capp for coming all the way from Kingston!

...also the Maus is sorta cool.. I guess.. I mean, gas mileage.. but w.e....



Before I left I liked the Clark workshop, and the discussions it started up. 

Dean special thanks for the background work Smile

Hi guys,

I have decided to donate this Unimax 1/18 M3A2 static Bradley APC to be raffled off on the 18th to help with the hall expenses. Dean will have to agree to it but I am thinking maybe $5 a ticket for a chance to win this lovely piece to go with your modern tanks. As is, no box but everything is in working order. Taken apart once to see if it can be RC'ed.

WHO WON?

A little size comparison.



A Panzer III, which was used at the start of the war and the Maus, which was coming at the end of the war.

Also Dean, thanks for hosting event.  thumbs up
