    Semi-Auto Only
    Full automatic and burst mode firing are prohibited at this event. Only one BB is to be projected with each pull of the trigger. However, we're making an exception to this rule for replicas of guns that were designed to fire in full-auto during World War II such as a Beretta Modello 38, Breda M37, Browning, FG 42, flamethrower, Lewis gun, M3 grease gun, MG 34, MG 36, MG 42, MP 40, MP 41, Nambu Type 100, PPD-40, PPSh-41, STEN, Sterling submachine gun, StG 44, Thompson submachine gun, or ZB vzor 26. If you own a replica that you feel should be added to this list, please contact me. You may also use pump/slide-action or lever-action guns that shoot multi-round bursts.

    Hit & Respawn Rules
    Call your hit. Put your red rag on your head. Drop every prop that's bigger than a basketball. Don't reveal intel to live players.
    Sit for 3 minutes out of play. Then, remain seated while waiting for a live player to come respawn you back in, or stand and move to catch up with your buddies and be respawned by one of them at a safe respawn tree. The person who respawns you does so by taking off your red rag and placing it in your hand. For this event, a white bandage must also be placed on your left arm.
    Detailed Hit & Respawn Rules are linked HERE.


    British and Greek forces have been preparing for the invasion of Crete for months. They man fortified positions around the island and are ready for a tough fight. The island is covered with their anti-aircraft guns in case of an airborne invasion. Allied forces are identified by their blue armbands.

    Axis (invite-only non-player characters)
    Kurt Student's elite Fallschirmjäger division has been called upon to undertake the daring invasion of Crete. They are supported by several mountain infantry regiments that will be ferried to the island. These paratroopers must face intense resistance from a fierce enemy that is content on holding the island. Axis forces wear grey, black, or tan.

    Channel 2 (462.5875 MHz) is reserved for the Germans. Partisans may monitor Channel 2 but aren't permitted to transmit on it.
    VOX mode, hot mic-ing, and channel jamming are all prohibited. Please familiarize yourself with your radio and set it to your faction's channel before arriving at the field.

    The Mission
    It is May 1941. Fighting in Greece has intensified as German forces aid Mussolini in his conquest. To Greece's south lies the largest of its islands, Crete. Crete is a vital position in the Mediterranean Sea and holds three airfields that are key to denying the Germans air superiority in the region. Crete is defended by a coalition of 42,000 British, Australian, and Greek soldiers supported by the British Mediterranean Royal Fleet. It is expected that the Germans will make an attempt to capture Crete. The Allies must fight to ensure that the island does not fall into the hands of Axis forces.

    You are REQUIRED to have a red glowstick/chemlight and a working flashlight. Red Life+Gear glowstick flashlights will be sold at the field for $5 each. Due to the historical setting, night vision is NOT permitted for use.

    Swap Meet
    Everyone is welcomed and encouraged to buy/sell/trade their airsoft equipment in and around the parking lot and staging area during the morning of this event.
