Oklahoma D-Day 2013

In what can only be called a break from tradition, the staff for The
Annual Oklahoma D-Day Event have release a tentitive schedule
for their 2013 event. It should be understood that changes may
be made, but overall the outline should remain pretty much fixed
as is..

Among the more significant changes will be a number of 'tactical
mini events,' which will have an impact on the Saturday event. As
of now they have not specified just how these shorter mini games
will figure in, but if this year was any indication they'll give those
who come out ahead with a number of bonus aspects, such as
extra insertions, better starting locations, etc...

A copy of this new schedule will appear here as soon as the rough
edges have been ironed out, so stay tuned. In the mean time you
can pre-register for D-Day 2013 by heading over to the official
D-Day website - http://www.ddaypark.com


Sincverely,

Andrew Van Der Plaats

Awsome to hear. My team should be making the trip next year. Couldn't make it this year due to unforseen circumstances.

Here's a highlight from this year's 'Operation Sea Lion'

No Co2

From Ed:

You will have to bring your tanks with you to orientation and before you
get a hopper cover your tanks will be inspected at our orientation station.
We are not going to use Zip ties because people simply cut them off but
what I do have is a custom sticker that will be applied to the tank neck.

As for CO2. after looking at the numbers this year as to the amount of
C02 vs the costs associated with providing it in 7 locations we will do
away with Co2. I realize this may be a problem for some but we are
not the only field headed in this direction. Let's look at the facts:

Very unstable on the field creating a difficult situation for the player
and our staff. It is simply not as safe as air. The fact that the heat
effects it so much and it is so up and down on the field is a PROBLEM
that basically none of us can control. This makes it not safe! From the
hot shoots that we had more than 80% were from C02 and that is a
fact provided by honor tag data.

Knowing that A/T gunners use the small 9oz. tanks is an issue for sure
but we now have compressed tanks available somewhat affordable to
fit those applications.

The raw cost of providing co2 to a smaller number of players could
simply be applied to areas of the event or game that would be much
more fruitful.

It takes 14 refs to do C02 correctly and I can assure you that you
would rather have those refs on the field. Not to mention the added
cost of those refs simply filling C02.

So:
Very Unsafe in consideration to the percentage of users that is decreasing
annually.

Not cost effective compared to the needs of the game and the size( 7 locations
onsite for 2% usage)

Logistical nightmare again compared to percentage of use.

Waste associated with the cost of unused C02 after the event. It simply
sits there and goes to waste due to the uncertainty of how much you need..
total shot in the dark with no returns.

With safety in mind I don't think that there are nearly as many positives that
would out weigh the negative effect C02 is having on our particular situation.
I know that there are going to be some people that don't like this change but
now is the time to take the leap and make the change.

Social hour

Starting last year the Allied Staff members for the Annual
Oklahoma D-Day Event invited representatives from each
of the vendors who attend and support D-day to drop by
our TOC for refreshments. It's an opportunity for these
vendors to meet our SAC, unit commanders and the rest
of the senior staff. it's also a chance for the staff to talk
about some of the unique things the Allied Army has
developed to help monitor and maintain contact with
our side's players.

Crazy that the CEF are leaving DDay. It will sure be interesting to see the impact of that on the mini games alone!

I think the CW will do just fine in 2013. My impression is that Ghost only speaks for a limited number of CEF at D-Day.

The CW have a very efficient recruiting organization and even though they may be down in numbers for 2013 (???) they will still be a force to be reckoned with.

If you are a player interested in playing for the CW, just let the dust settle. Things will be fine.

I agree, there'll be some players, mostly from the UK,
France and the Netherlands who might look to play in
France, but that leaves a lot of their members here in
the states and Canada. If you're looking to join a well
organized unit look no further than the CEF.

I am planning on coming out for the main event as of now. Life changes things between now and 2013, but with a little luck, some of us in the east have talked about coming out so it may just happen.

TOC Mission Part 1

ace0007, we'll be looking forward to introducing you to what
D-Day is all about regardless of when you can get there, but
take it from me, the earlier in the week you arrive, the more
you'll get out of the experience.

Here's yet another example of the sort of action which occured
each day during the week leading up to the main event. This
clip is the first of two which were produced by the CEF, which
shows their troopers working in concert with members of the
rest of our divisions to recover a series of 'targets,' each of
which gave the Allied Army things like extra insertions or a
better starting location for one of its units during the Saturday
event.

Note the way the CEF troopers react to their commander and
also how he's constantly in contact with our TOC. This event
was won by the Allies, who successfully managed to locate
and recover the four 'targets' they'd been assigned to secure.

If you'd like more information, either about the CEF or any of
the Allies other 17 divisions, please visit the Official D-Day
website - http://www.ddaypark.com or you can also drop me
a line or give me a call.

As many of you know we (Doug Gritzmacher and Mike DeChant) have been creating the documentary
feature film "Soldiers of Paint" over the last few years and guess what? It's done! And we want you to
be a part of the advance screening.

When: 7:30pm, Tuesday, July 24, 2012

Where: AFI Silver Theatre, Silver Spring, MD.
Directions & Parking-
http://www.afi.com/silver/about/directions.aspx

Tickets: $9.00. Purchase online.
http://soldiersofpaint.eventbrite.com/



"Soldiers of Paint" follows a dramatic battle involving 5,000 people who re-stage the Invasion of Normandy,
or D-Day, in Oklahoma. Instead of bullets they use paint and it's any man's game, which means the Germans
could win! And these guys are serious. The spend all year preparing their battle strategies (including finding
ways to spy on each other) and on game day they come ready to fight with full-size tanks, airplanes, and
bazookas. The battle takes place each year on a 700-acre piece of land owned by Dewayne Convirs, who
takes on this endeavor as a tribute to his grandfather and, ultimately, in support of our veterans. Sound
interesting? Come join us and see for yourself and in the process support DC's independent filmmaking
community.

Tickets are first come, first serve, so purchase early. Friends and family are all welcome. Please feel free
to join us in the theatre's cafe and bar area before the show at 7:00pm. Afterward, join us at the Fire Station
1 Restaurant and Brewing Company down the street for suds and merriment. In the meantime, here is an
advance clip from the film to get you in the mood. Hope to see you there!




Cheers!

Doug & Mike

Stars and Stripes Updates



Thanks for the comments and suggestions. I have looked into
what it'd take to make it possible for folks to view the e-Zine
on their phones and it looks like it'd cost about 500.00 a year.
As much as I'd like to be able to offer that I don't see my ads
generating that much, so until I find another alternative I'm
going to have to continue posting the issues as I have been.

Here are a couple more vendor interviews, as well as a look
inside the cafe.

CEF Recruiting

While it's still eleven months away, the drive to recruit new
players for BOTH sides has already begun. Here's a shout
out to those who may want to know more about the CEF.

This year was my first year at Ok Dday and the CEF. Dday
was awesome and all the refs I met along the way did a great
job! I was recruited by the CEF from the Dday forum. From
that point I was truley amazed with the organization of this
team. The amount of support that everyone is willing to give
is unbelievable. Of course the swag is awesome!!! It's also
great meeting people from around the world sharing stories
from where they come from. We are all there for the same
reason, have fun and play paintball. The CEF have a lot of
pride in the game and respect for past, current, and future
military personnel. As for me being Canadian and seeing the
way these international players embrace the British and
Canadian regiments is really appreciated. The CEF is my
new family now, and I will always wear maroon on the field!!
I can't wait to step on the field with my fellow maroon goons!!

HUZZAH my friends!!!
