NOTICE:

March 9-10 is the first weekend of work, We need all
the help we can get because we are going to Burn A MASSIVE AMOUNT OF THE PARK!

The local agencies are coming to train, help and burn
a ton of area such as SWORD, the INDIAN LAND and the whole 2010. You can also help tear down structures
that need to be gone and we plan to rebuild.

Sign up on the D-Day forum site if you would, so I
know how much grub and spirits to have on hand.

Here's another clip featuring members of the CEF
talking about what makes being part of their outfit
so unique. Please forgive the poor lighting and
focus instead on what these two have to say.

With just under 4 months to go the Allied staff has
already been busy holding planning sessions and
one of the things that's first on everyone's mind is
how are we doing, recruiting wise. I could spell
out where things stand, but since this is an open
forum I'm afraid all I can say is that we're ahead
of where we were last year. Does that mean you
have to pick a unit and sign up tomorrow? Hardly,
but it wouldn't hurt to start looking a little closer.
We are also putting out a call for tanks, as well
as for mechanized players and tank killers who
want to see what it's like to face off against the
vaulted might of the German Armor Corps.

If you've got questions, or would just like to chat
about what you can expect when you get there,
feel free to give my office a call. I'm available
pretty much every day starting at 0600hrs and
I'm generally still here till around 2000hrs.

Also wanted to bring to everyone's attention some details
about the one Allied Army unit that stands above the rest
when it comes to what they bring to D-Day. This unit is
our O.S.S. (Office of Strategic Services).

Back in WW II the OSS was a unit which conducted special
operations missions not just in Europe, but in places like SE
Asia, Korea, and Africa.

At the end of WW II Trumann shut down the OSS, but it
didn't take long for him to realize he needed their skills
to counter what the Russians were doing so they formed
a new unit to do many of the same things and called it
the CIA.

Out in Oklahoma we've merged what the OSS and CIA
do and given them some pretty tough missions. If you
think you've got what it takes to be a part of this special
unit, let me know and I'll tell you how to get in touch.

Here's a look at what they're looking for.

Office of Strategic Services (OSS)



Office of Strategic Services, or colloquially known as OSS,
is the Allied Force's premier special missions unit. OSS performs,
but is not limited to:

1. Long Range Reconnaissance
2. Raids
3. Augmentation of main combat forces
4. Psychological operations

Successful candidates have one or more of the following attributes:
former or current Army (11B, 11Z, 18 series), Air Force (1C4X1,
1C2X1) and Marine (0311, 0321-0369), 5+ years of paintball
experience, high physical fitness (must be able to carry a minimum
of 30 lbs over rough terrain), climbing ability, very intelligent with
high procedural knowledge. You must be able to eat a full spool of
razor wire during a static line jump. Upon completing that, you will
need to go three minutes in the ring with every person in the unit
after drinking aviation fuel and crawling through broken glass. Yep,
it's not easy having a good time.

While the criteria is high, there is no harm in contacting us. Criteria
are weighed differently for each person.

Most important: BE HONEST.

Nothing sucks more than coming out to Oklahoma and realizing
you're not prepared to play hard.

As of 2012, we will not accept applications for couples (boyfriend-
girlfriend, husband-wife, etc). There have been negative performance
issues associated with this combination. Feel free to being your
significant other along, but keep in mind that only one of you will
be allowed to play under OSS.

If you think you got what it takes, contact Andy and include a POC
address/phone.

As you're viewing this clip keep these facts in mind.
This team has been around now for 10 years, the
people who make up this unit on that team have
been traveling down to Oklahoma from their home
base in Canada now for 5 years. The event they
want you to join them for has been going on now
for 15 years. How much more needs to be said to
convince you that this is the team for you and that
this is the event to join them at?   The CEF is by
far and away the largest paintball team in the world,
with members here in the US, Canada, UK, France,
Holland, Australia, New Zealand to name just a few.

Join the Commonwealth and become part of the
brotherhood of fun loving, risk taking paintball players,
the likes of which you've never seen.

A great introduction to what the 4th Infantry Division players
face as those ramps drop. Also dispells all that talk about how
the Germans are at such a great disadvantage, given they're
outnumbered and all.

If you want to experience a REAL piece of history, join the
4th Infantry Division this coming June for the 15th Annual
Oklahoma D-Day Event.

For those who've never been or played at D-Day here's some
useful information from one of members in the 82nd Ab 505TH
Regiment.


If you want to know how much gas is going to cost you, use this
website. Enter in your vehicle info and it will give you a pretty
accurate estimate on how much gas will cost you. Figure out what
it costs to fill your car from empty to full. For instance, to fill my car,
which has a 17.5 gallon tank, it's right around $50-60 depending
on gas prices. (15 gallons or so useable, account for fumes) Basically
you want to over estimate a little bit, because you will be making
trips from the campsite to the adjacent towns to pick up supplies,
food, water, etc. We made several trips over the course of the week.
It isn't necessary, but I didn't mind going into town for comfort
items.

http://gasbuddy.com/Trip_Calculator.aspx

For me, I used about two cases the whole week. I played in almost
every game last year However, I'm also very conservative. Also our
group didn't really bunker in, we moved a lot. So I have a preference
of having a light loadout. Basically I used a case for all the mini
scenario games, and I used a case for the big D-Day game.

Your playing style, and your objectives will determine how much
paint you'll be slinging all week.

Food for us wasn't too bad, the first year we lived on ramen & eggs.
2nd year we brought some meat, visited more with our unit, and we
ate a little better. But still, eggs and ramen were a staple food. Along
with granola bars, and jerky. I did however indulge and eat at the
cafe & Phil's grill. (Phil's grill is AMAZING btw, and prices aren't all
that bad)

Anyways, gas split 3 ways last year in my car came out to like $80
or something a person, water is really cheap, maybe $10-15 for water
(a person) for the whole week by buying gallon jugs. We're doing it
better this year, I got 3 7-gallon aquatainers for water supply. Should
save us money. I spent close to $200 in toys, all together with
purchasing paint, my d-day ticket, it was about $500-600.

Thanks for this information goes to "Spartan sui"

Ok, we've been posting clips, stories and the like
now since right after everyone got back this past
June. Now with just under 90 days to go before
the 15th Anniversary edition of D-Day kicks off
it's time to get registered and into fighting shape.

Are you in with us, or are you going to sit by the
sidelines? The Allied Army is gearing up for a war,
a paintball war of epic proportions and it's calling
on you for your help.

Become a player in this history making event and
claim your rightful share of the winners bragging
rights.

Got questions about which unit suits you best, how
much it's all going to cost, or where to camp, drop
me a line or give my office a call.

Sincerely,
Brigadier General Andy Van Der Plaats

Just learned that the Bunker now offers
a special registration deal for groups of
players who are willing to sign up at the
same time.

Call the Bunker and register 4 players and
get 1 more member in for FREE. The key
to taking advantage is to CALL the Bunker
rather than by registering online.

Bunker - (918) 666-3411

Finally wrapped up the March E-Zine Edition. Loads of clickable
links to some rather unique YouTube videos, plus a couple to much
longer D-Day related films.

As always, I can use more of your input, articles and of course
more photos and video clips. Got something you'd like to share,
send it along, or give me a call so we can discuss it.   

Hopefully after the April edition is wrapped up I'll begin laying out
the June 'print' edition.' If you're a vendor and you'd like to get a
jump start on placing your ad, please get in touch as soon as it's
convenient.

The Pathfinders do whatever is needed of us at D-Day.
We are Special Forces in a nut shell. We are all over the
field from game on until game over. We take our jobs
serious and never have we not accomplished a mission.
When the SAC says take Omaha beach, we take Omaha
beach, when he says take a bridge, the bridge is taken,
when he says help take Utah beach, we take Utah beach.
If he says take any objective on the field, we take it.
We are fast moving, hard charging, get the job done guys.
We are the best of the best at D-day.

We also have the most fun during the week than most
folks. we camp together in 6 of the RV slots and are
known for our great times during the week.

If there was an official abstract for the "Life of a 101st
Pathfinder", this would be it. We work hard and play
hard.

Blue DragonX, over on McCarter Brown's forum did some
digging around yesterday and came up with these two
flashbacks to past Oklahoma D-Days. Take a look and
check what they were like back then and beat on over
and register for what's sure to be the biggest, baddest
paintball event of this year.

if you want to know more about D-Day these are great
