Game Day on Sunday

Sunday at POW was great fun as always and the footage i shot has been edited and uploaded to YouTube. Its proving to be very popular again, so much so that the view counter keeps crashing every few hours but 1000 views in 24hours, Christ only knows why i'm not a YT Partner!!

The day itself was VERY cold and because we had such a big turn out, 84 players in total, it took a bit longer between games to get people moving and ready for another game. We played two games in the morning, the traditional Red Vs Yellow games which lasted about an hour each. The battles were very intense, lots of players, lots of smoke, lots of grenades and lots of fun. Both teams got a victory each and then in the afternoon it was a long game, WWII players versus Modern players. The WWII guys normally win these games quite convincingly but the Moderns really had their shit together on Sunday and scored a great victory over their old enemy. With so many players on site you get the odd argument over hit dodging and rule infractions and Sunday was no different. Nothing major and it was all settled with no hard feelings in the end.

Scoutthedoggie was in attendance as usual and played a fair bit of airsoft whilst filming with his head mounted Tachyon camera and his new Type97 assault rifle. I asked him how it was performing and he seemed reasonably happy with it. Its a good looking gun and reminds me of my own L85 in that its a Bullpup design and sits very comfortably in the shoulder. Scout has some footage up already of Sundays game and the quality and clarity of his filming never ceases to amaze me. Think i'll have to invest in one of those Mac laptops with the imovie software, very impressive stuff and i notice its what BigBoss uses too.

Anyway, i'm just about to start a long day of babysitting my 1 year old nephew who's great fun but tiring as he's teething so i'd best be off.

Till next time guys!!

A busy week

Hey guys.

Well since my last post its been a very busy week. Work has kept me away from YouTube so i haven't had the time to organise any more filming for Airsoft videos but the good thing is that this coming Sunday is another POW day out so i'll have my camera with me to record some of the action for you. The last video was just a brief piece showing Dru and Stu preparing for the advancing enemy and it seems to have been popular. Lots of people have asked me for informal or 'out of play' footage so it fits the bill.

I know that many people are looking at this Blog but so far i only have two subscribers or followers. Please sign up to follow me if you have a Blogger account guys and in the event i have a following then i will add much more to this and provide you guys with exclusive news, reviews, photos etc.

I now have another YouTube channel up and running. Its in its infancy and only has a couple of uploads. More will be following very shortly. It also has nothing to do with airsoft and is one of at least 2 non airsoft related channels that are being launched this year.

Stay tuned for more announcements on this and its only Bloggers who are being given advance notice of new developments and ideas.

Players of War on Sunday

Well thats now almost a fortnight since last game day and its coming around again this weekend. Since then i've uploaded a video taken on that game day where we had over 80 players in total and some really intense battles. The video has been fairly popular so the plan for this Sunday is to get much more action on film and maybe a couple of sequences following some of POWs more popular players to keep their fans happy. The newest video was uploaded this week and is a review of my Molle gun bag. A great piece of kit and much recommended.

As the worst of the winter is hopefully behind us i also have plans for purchasing some more kit to wear and use at POW. In particular i have seen items i want to add to my German WWII loadout to enhance the overall look and functionality of it and i'm also looking at modern items for a look based around my new L85. All of these items once bought will be reviewed and shown off on YouTube. There are also a few guns out there i'd love to get my hands on but as i'm not sponsored by anyone i can only review things i own and that means saving up even more cash. Christ its an expensive hobby!!

Also with the weather improving i've not had as much time for making and planning videos as i've been out working much more but there will always be time to get a regular supply of videos to my channel. At least one video per week. I was out for a few beers last night with my mate Andy or Dru918 as he's known to the guys who watch his channel and we had a few laughs. We were talking mostly about Airsoft, our time in the forces and Youtube so i know he'll be at POW this Sunday and i'm planning on getting him on film.

Anyway...keep your eyes peeled for this Sundays action guys.
