PAVN & VC Expectations

I love historical airsoft in that the spirit of the events is period emmersion, honor and respect. Certainly there are periods where winning or superior tactics comes in to play but this is secondary to the overall tone of the event.

With that, I'd like to share a few of my expectations. I expect all VC and NVA to think safe and fun first and effectiveness during game play second. I expect all VC and PAVN players to play with honor and a full clear understanding of the rules. Ignorance of game requirements or restrictions will not be an excuse for what might appear to be dishonest actions. It is my hope that all who are members of the VC and PAVN will do all they can to arrive with a good faith effort toward authentic impressions and gear.

I want everyone to come with a small notebook and something to write with. If possible, by Friday pick up a whistle and attach it to your chest rig with parachord or whatever. We will not have radios of any kind so our communication will be by bugle and whistles and shouting.

I will hand out to all of you a small code sheet explaining what the various whistles will mean and we will do a little rehearsal. I will also have some simple Vietnamese expressions we can shout out during tactical manuever. Even when conversing normally on the field I'd like all speaking to be sing songey so anyone overhearing through the brush will have no doubt disciphering friend or foe. (This works both ways, provided we all play.)

I would also like to find some time to share some simple PAVN and VC tactics so our game play will be as authentic as possible for our US and ARVN opponents.

This is going to be a ball and thank you in advance for volunteering to play bad guys this veterans day weekend. Let's play it well and have fun.

Another good signal device is a couple of bamboo sticks banged together.

VC NVA Expectations

I'm heading down to California tomorrow and will arrive at the AO hopefully by mid afternoon on Friday 3:00 to 4:00 PM I hope all my minions arrive safe and ready to have fun.

I'm looking forward to seeing a lot of you who I know once again and meeting those of you that I have never met. Remember your whistles and notebooks, red kill rags and proper eye protection.

See you there. Don't forget to set your watches back to 1969!

Just a FYI, I pick up a cheap metal whistle with para cord for about 1-2 bucks.

If your on the Westside LA head over to The supply Shop on Motor and Venice. Also The Supply Sargent in Burbank has them as well. And last but not least check REI (Santa Monica) or big 5. Most of these places sell whistles as a emergency item.
