Message from Blacksheep 6
“The cancellation of Operation Blacksheep @ Pine Plains took the wind out of everyone – your disappointment pales in comparison to mine. You have heard me state on many occasions that I am humbled by how Pine Plains has changed the sport and many of your lives. I am dedicated to bringing you the best MILSIM experience I can, but I can’t do it without your support. Support comes in many forms – spreading the word about events, sharing your experiences with The Wall, helping others prepare for events and most importantly coming to the events.
National level events are not cheap to organize and run – advance headcount allows us to plan the logistics, many of which have fairly long lead times. This pricing strategy is common among event planners, register early and pay less – register late and pay more. It’s not an attempt to get more money out of players, it’s solely to get you off your asses and commit so we can plan. Pine Plains and The Cove are like apples and oranges – one urban and one woods – both provide an awesome MILSIM experience.
Think it’s easy to find a venue for a national level event, think again my friends! Although many venues look really cool from the Google Maps view, most present hazardous conditions like asbestos or lead, are decayed beyond use, are demolished already or the owners don’t want to support our sport. Your safety is my primary concern in selecting a site that meets the standards for Operation Blacksheep. I am looking all over the United States for venues and in discussions with a few. When and if these venues come online, you have to support them. Got an idea for a venue, throw it my way and we’ll check it out.
Want helicopters, bump the headcount. Want military vehicles, bump the headcount. Want really cool venues, bump the headcount. OR, be complacent – content to play at your local field and watch MILSIM die. Be part of the solution not part of the problem. Lead, follow or get out of the way!”
