Canadians for OK D-Day 2010 Third time's the charm (Not that first and second didn't work
Posted 05 August 2009 - 12:33 PM
OK D-Day, for those that don't know, is the world's largest annual scenario game, featuring between 3000 and 4000 players spread over one of the largest fields in the sport. It is also one of the few WWII-based scenario games that actually recognizes the contribution of the Commonwealth countries, with several Canadian units (Who also make a hell of an impact in the game as well).
There's a few updates for both units and transportation for 2010.
For starters, the Commonwealth is reviving a new unit for 2010: The Royal Winnipeg Rifles, who will deploy alongside the Canadian Scottish Infantry on Sword Beach this year, in anticipation of some changes to the point structure for 2010 and, hopefully, more importance placed on Sword Beach. Already, we have the Glen Morris Mercenaries, one of Canada's best-known and most successful scenario teams, looking to form the core of the new RWR, but we still need more people.
As for transportation, there are now two convoys planned for Ontario, and one for Winnipeg. The first Ontario convoy will likely head down June 11th or 12th, leaving from Toronto and hitting up major cities in between (KW-area, London, Windsor, ect), the other is largely composed of the Grey Rangers, leaving from Owen Sound a few days later. The Winnipeg convoy also leaves the 12th.
Interested parties, regardless of side, should register on D-Day Commonwealth and contact either GOD (Toronto convoy), Walster (Owen Sound) or Tac-One (Winnipeg). We'll take anybody from any side who comes with money-but you may be subjected to 15 hours of why you should join the Commonwealth instead.

Also, I'm sure Sir Ray will do the CONEX renting again as it was quite a success last year with the renting of...4? or was it 5 CONEXs?

I'll be heading down again from Ottawa for the third year running. If you contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or register at www.ddaycommonwealth.com I'll set you up in a Canadian unit and find you a vehicle to travel in. You may also have the option of travelling with me depending on our convoy arrangements.
