Didn't you hate the rain at D-Day

Well I was a d-day and you guys should agree that the rain at D-Day was a bit too much? Now I learned why they say you should bring a Mechanical gun

had I been thinkin about ITU would have taken pics of my feet. They were swollen, blistered, and in 1 spot on my foot a 2" chunk of skin fell off. I was smart and decided to save messing up my shoes in favor of walking barefoot on Monday, and Friday. Yeah, so note to all, bring junk shoes that can be trashed so your feet dont give you the bird later.

almost was. My feet were torn to hell. I played some, but not near as much as what I wanted to. I hooked up JJ and 1 of your other guys with a pod a piece at colleville. They saw me lol. Dont think anyone else did though.

On the up side, I didn't see any smoke grenade related fires... On the down side, we had trouble lighting intentional campfires. Next year: we're bringing Duraflame logs...

It never rained during play, so no big deal. I had my gun electrical taped out to survive the Monday water, and then it stopped raining an hour before the game...

Correct. That was just after (and because) the Ark was removed from The Hill.

Rain is what it is and Oklahoma gets plenty of it. The field was drying out nicely before the re-wetting on Friday. But, no games were rained out. I had wet feet and we spent some time drying out boots and socks, but thats part of the fun. The rain also held the temperature down below 90 degrees, which was very nice.

Every year I have been to DDay Ive gotten wet. Plan for it. Accept it and thank Mother Nature for keeping the twisters off the field and sunning us on Saturday.

if you have an awning over your tent and a rainfly you can sleep dry as a bone in your tent even during the rainstorms.

it rains every year there. if you were there in '06 there was tornado's 3 miles south of us. thats the right time of the year for tornados. generally if its windy when you get to the park then expect rain.
