D-Day. Dewayne offers 200 dollars reward.

For the best World War 2 campsite. That means if you sandbag, or "create" a great impression of a World War 2 era camping ground. Listen to what he says on the video below.

Here is what D-day should look like.

The World War 2 re-enactors make fun of paiintball scenarios. Here is their site, cjeck their gallery pictures out:

Check their forums, they call us retarded and stupid. I believe one fellow commented on a paintball player dressed as a vending machine. Another commented on someone wearing a diaper. One of the reasons I now avoid big paintball scenarios.

Maybe we need to find a scenario that we CAN do--without spending any money. I believe Blackhawk Down is the best bet.
In the movie 4,000 Somali militia attack 100 US rangers. The Somali mob has 4,000 guys all wearing different uniforms, carrying different guns, wearing all manner of clothing. They would be perfect. And it cost almost nothing.

Our paintball guys cant afford decent WW2 gear, a decent WW2 uniform will set you back fifty dollars at least.
My buddy said that we could do the Somali wrap look. Wrap a towel around your waist, and instant Somali.

Or maybe Afghanistan. Just get a few people to wrap towels around their heads.

It sounds like a very sad story. To have some mean words spoken to you and than forcing you out of scenario paintball forever.
cruel so cruel.
Please give me a break with this.
First it was the death of paintball....now it is the end of your era in scenario.
You should look into a safer solo sport like golf. i am pretty sure you can where what ever you want without being ridiculed.
You say you are an easy mark but in another thread you fist fighting with airsoft cheaters.
I cant believe you were signled out at ion...i have seen people dressed as the cast of xmen at ion.
and you cant compare ok d day to ion.
It seems as if all of your threads are just here for pity.
if you have run your course in paintball and your doing your retrospective before your big retirement party this is a sad way to go.
It is a great hobby that is a ton of fun.....expensive but fun.
quit ...dont quit
but please stop with these sappy outcrys.
oh check the attendance numbers for local and national scenarios.
you are not seeing a decline in the number of events......hell some fields are hosting 1 a month.

Sorry to hear you took the guy's criticisms to heart. A loudmouth drunk really doesn't have any credibility - you shouldn't have let him influence you into walking away from something you enjoy. You can always return...

I'm here to tell you that I've seen a few cross dressers
at D-Day, as well as someone dressed in a yellow banana
costume, but they're a VERY small segment of the crowd.

D-Day began D-Day as a way for Dewayne to honor Sgt.
Enos Armstrong, who served in the 238th Combat Engineers
during WW II, from Normandy to Germany. Enos was
Dewayne's grandfather, a man he grew up idolizing, just
as most of us idolize our grandfathers. I don't think
Dewayne ever expected D-Day to grow the way it has
when he started the event, but he had a boat and a
pond and players got a chance to make a real beach
landing and that made his event unique.

It may seem out of place or odd, especially to those of
you who've never been there, but when I first went, back
in 2002, I watched probably close to 1,000 players lining
up in 'sticks,' each headed up by a player who played the
roll of their sergeant, on either side of a large field. To
one side of the field were rows of players who played as
Germans and to the other were rows of American players.

Once they were lined up a native American military color
guard in full head dress marched down the center of the
field to the flag pole. They then raised the flag and then
fired their rifles in salute, while those 1,000 players all
stood at attention.

Yeah I know, what's this got to do with paintball? Actually
it has nothing to do with paintball, but what it does is stand
as just one example of why each year for going on 16 years
lots of people come from around the world to spend a week
out in the middle of no where, just for the chance to have
fun and at the same time to also remember who it was who
made it possible for us to play this sport. That may not
mean a lot to some of you, but on the chance it does, then
come and join me out there in June. I promise D-Day will
change you, in ways I can't explain, just like it changed me.

Thanks for allowing me to speak my piece.

Cap Braid

Thanks for asking. Actually that particular cap is trimmed with
orange, piped with white (Signal Corp), but when SAC promoted
me to Brigider and assigned me to the general staff I had to buy
a cap trimmed with gold braid (general officer). Funny, the
things you can learn playing paintball.

$50 for a uniform is nothing compared to the cost of gong to D-Day.

I've never been to D-Day Ohio, but I have looked at
what it'd take to get up there. It's a re-enactment
with aircraft buzzing the beaches, several real landing
craft and that's just for starters. Of course they don't
get their uniforms dirty and I wouldn't either if I had
as much invested in one as they typically do.

I've found that with a little looking you can pick up a
decent pair of pants and a shirt, a wide brown leather
belt and a cover for under 100.00, which when you
consider what some folks spend for a speedball outfit
isn't that bad. Gonna go cheap, buy a set of Dickies
workwear (tan), or hit your local good will store for
some used stuff.

As for the cost of 'going to D-Day' that depends alot
on where you're coming from and how you plan to
get there. If you fly in it's going to cost more than
if you drive and split the cost with a couple friends.
Remember, that 80.00 entry covers your HPA and
camp access and for some of us that's for nearly 2
weeks. Regardless if you're there or home you've
got to eat, unless you live at home and mooch off
mom and dad. Even there you can find units that
offer meal programs, who'll feed you 3 squares a
day for about 8 bucks. It's really not all that bad
if you budget your money.

It’s important to note that we are not reenacting DDay at Oklahoma DDay. We are paying tribute which is a big difference. If we were reenacting it the Germans would always lose. The battle would be the same every year. We are fighting the battle with units that are loosely based on their actual counterparts as well as some key areas that were part of the battle. Other than starting on the beaches Oklahoma DDay follows its own unique path each year.

How could anyone even compare a paintball scenario to a reenactment? In paintball the battle is dynamic, you know you’re out when you get shot and you know you’ve won points if you hold the flag at the right time. We also have no requirement to dress up in any uniform other than a mask, paintball marker, and camelback. For a reenactment you need period uniforms, go where you are told and “die” when told to do so. One’s a movie the other a sporting event.

AMZ is 100% spot on when he talks about D-Day. They do
encourage everyone who comes to take part in a parade,
but there are many who don't and even if you do no one is
going to check to see you're in proper uniform. They also
stage a cosutme judging contest, butagainnit's strictly up
to you to take part or not.

Going back to what Dewayne is trying to do with this new
contest he's running for a minute, I think this clip with WWII
Coast Guard member and D-Day veteran Jack Read probably
put it best after he attended the D-Day in Ohio re-enactment.
D-Day has always been more than just a paintball game, it's
also been Dewayne's way of keeping history alive and I for
one am thankful that he's given me and others a opportunity
to do that.

Dwayne's contest is just one small part of the overall D-Day experience, just like the "uniform contest" or the parade. Hell, I have about $600 invested in a FJ Oberst uniform but I don't wear it on Saturday; I wear my team "uniform" or a 6th jersey. In seven years, I have seen very, very few players in outlandish get-ups (except Operation Sea Lion). The whole player base really frowns on going out of your way to be a total fool.

Fact is various units at D-Day have welcomed reinactors with open arms....it just adds to the D-Day experience. Few, if any of these individuals will wear their uniforms in the game....nothing like getting paint stains on their hard-to-find period uniforms and uniform items.

D-Day is what it is. There is something for everyone. That is what makes it unique. No other game in the US offers a week long list of activities. We may argue and disagree, but when the event starts, we are like family....until Saturday that is, lol.

Here's just one more example of just how far some
folks are willing to go when it comes to D-Day.

" Andy,
Thought I would get ahead of the weather here and snap
a picture or two of my FW 190 project. If you would like
to use this to promote D Day 2013 feel free to do so if not
thats ok.
Currently Jagd 26 is "fitting out" of aircraft in the anticipated
Allied invasion of Europe. Intel suggests but only vaguely
where the invasion is suppose to happen. Luftwaffe units
are being indiscriminately dispersed throughout the Western
coast of Europe. JG 26 is currently working feverishly on its
air fleet, but because of the weather final conditioning of the
aircraft isn't anticipated until early Spring. Technicians are
working around the clock to bring the aircraft into
serviceable condition. . . .more intel to follow. . .

Getting excited about this years event. Will attach more photos
soon, I hope LOL."

Thanks
CAJ
FW-190

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As soon as I can upload the photos he sent I'll post them
here for your inspection. Let me assure you the owner
of this note is moving ahead with construction of a nearly
full scale FW190. Here's a photo of a typical FW 190-

I got three shots and I think the one you posted is one
of them. Saw what looked like some work in the wing
root, or at least that's what I call it.

Looks impressive.

Thanks, Yep, reworking the landing gear what a workload that has been. Still waiting for warmer dryer weather to make some "Big" adjustments.
I have an aircraft aerospace route above my lot and a many of times I see aircraft flying slowly overhead at a low altitude. Don't know if its the CEF making recon runs or . . . . ? . . .LOL

I have an idea, why not see about getting the local chapter of the
EAA (Experimental Aircraft Association) involved? They may even
have some spare hanger space you could use.
