I spend about 300$+ travel costs to be there Monday-sunday. I'm also very conservative with how much I shoot. But defiantly a game worth going to!

My team is from the Southernmost park of Oklahoma and make the trip every year. We normally take 2 vehicles, stay off-site, and eat out 1-2 that week. Here's our normal cost breakdown:

Gas: $150.00 per vehicle (including return trip) $300.00

Paint: 2 cases per person- 65x2->130x3= $390.00

Registration: (Pre-register if you can and save yourself an additional $35.00)
65x3=$195.00

Spending money: up to individual (I normally take $300.00)

Oh snap fund: an emergency fund we take as a precaution should anything crazy happen (bail bond, blown tire, battery dies in vehicle, teammate loses wallet): at least $100.00


Off-site secluded place we prefer to stay at so we actually get sleep: $30.00 per night

I hope this gives you an estimate of how much money would be a good idea to take. There are always going to be ways you can lower the costs such as staying on site, bringing your own food and having an iron will and not spend any money in the vendors booths.

My first year, my little brother and I went on a budget of $200.00 a peice total. We stayed on site, grilled, shot one case of paint a piece, and still had a somewhat comfortable week, although walking through the vendor's are was a difficult excercise in avoiding temptation.

The best way to find your medium is to look D-Day's website over carefully, figuring out if you want to play the mini-scenario events, take sniper/special forces courses, how much paint you want to shoot at the main event, ect. It also would be a good idea to check the vendor's list and see if there are any companies that have products you are specifically interested in buying will be there. Figure your spending money from there.

I hope this was of help to you, see you in June.

Travel Options

Thinking of joining us this year, but not sure how
to get there? Here' an option which is open to ALL
players, regardless of which unit or side you'll be
on. It's a dedicated area on the Official D-Day
Forum where folks looking for rides, as well as
those offering them can link up with one another.
Just another example of why D-Day is so unique.

Conex

Just as a quick heads-up for any potential newcomers looking
to decide which unit to join.

The Commonwealth has been given the go-ahead to establish
permanent Conex-based structures in Commonwealth Corner
and may be able to build *real* buildings as well. In addition,
we'll be renting additional Conexes this year as well at $10 a
day, for a minimum of 4 days per player.

Why should you care? Well, it means, for a small price, you
get the luxury of not having to lug a tent down (More room for
guns!), not have to worry about the weather destroying said
tent, and possibly everything in it, you get a solid, weather
proof container to sleep in and, if you can get enough people
together to buy your own Conex. It will ALWAYS be there and
since Commonwealth Corner has electricity, you may be able
to install an air conditioner, lights or whatever else you want
in it!

It's the perfect balance of the comforts of staying in a hotel
(But a lot cheaper) and getting in on the social atmosphere
of D-Day as well.

Again, these will ONLY be available to those who join up with
one of the Commonwealth's units. For a list of those units
please visit the official Oklahoma D-Day webite -

I received this notice today and wanted to pass it along
to those who may be considering bringing a tank to the
2010 D-Day Event.

For 2010, D-Day will pay for the vehicle insurance for the
paintball vehicles. The tanks will only need a walker if they
wish to pull off of the road and stop.

Sincerely,

I agree with Phate. Should be about $300 but is sure going to be worth it!

congratulations!!! If there is anything I can do let me know as I will be there. I have to agree, but I should add that people probably become frustrated and annoyed if the tank looks really terrible and poorly/cheaply made. Going to games before I had one and going sans tank now, I know I feel like that. At the same time I really enjoy seeing the others that are well done and adds tremendously to the events that they go to.

Regards to tanks, you're right, golf carts might make
effective tanks, but they're not that appealing. The
Germans at this event, along with the Brits bring a
few outstanding tanks. Look for even more at D-Day
this year.

Due to the size of the field, golf cart tanks are a bad idea. D-Day is 700+ acres. While not all areas have tank roads, tanks do take a beating at D-Day. Nothing worse than to travel to D-Day, go through all the tank certification process, just to break down 1-2 hours into the game.

Both Commands need their tankers to stay on the field for 8 hours. Tankers are key players at D-Day.

I don't think the batteries of most golf carts will last 8 hours going up and down the tank roads at OK D-Day. The event will challenge the players as well as gear and equipment.
