View Full Version : Game Feedback - 1st April !

2nd April 2012, 10:34 PM
Hi all !!

Thanks to all who came up to Cottenham on the 1st of April. Lovely weather - great Airsoft!

Lots of kind texts and emails have assured me that everyone had a great time. We saw some new faces and they really got stuck in!

I'll do a Battle Report once the pix are on the Gallery Section tomorrow but in the mean time ill say a few words.....

I had the pleasure of handing out the Membership Shields to our newest members!
Jorden - yours is next, I promise!!!

One of our new players Richard celebrated his Birthday - so we decided to make a special treat for them and allow them to survive the horrors of the Tower for 5 minutes while the rest of the players unleashed their weapons on them ! They held out and did very well indeed !!
Thanks for coming guys - I hope you enjoyed your day?!

I had the pleasure of meeting up with my old friends from Tumbridge Area - they drove all the way up just to visit us at R.I.F.T. Airsoft. I feel humble and honoured. Thanks Keith, Alan and Ian

A new face to R.I.F.T. is Chris. Met him for the first time with the Birthday Boy and he and I share almost the same interests in WWII/Weapons/Airsoft! Warm Welcome to Chris! He joined as a Subscribed Member on the day! We will have alot to talk about!

Ricky and Gary from Game were impressive for their first Airsoft Skirmish! Gary behaved himself, while Ricky decided to drain every battery in every gun I gave him! Yes, RickyRascal is a bloody troublemaker!! He even managed to loose a locating bar from my beloved MP44! :p

Dom bought his Girlfriend along - WoW ! she really knows how to kick butt ! Seriously good ! Watch out Dom !!!
Ryan (Megans B/F) worked hard - Did he manage to shoot Megan ? Maybe next time!
Sam Duce needs Multicam! He is one of the best like Carlos and we must turn him into one of the Multicam Boys.....I'll see what I can do!
Our Young ladies section, Hayley, Jo, Bex, Lisa and Deanna let out their usual War Screams! I love that! They all played really well and gave the boys some well earned bruises! Lee B (Bex's B/F/) needed his pals with him but unfortunately was a lone Soldier. This didnt stop him kicking Red Teams Butt!
AJ, Jai and Naith made Terry proud - well done lads:) Terry suffered a leg wound - but like a real soldier he just played on..... he only cried a little bit ! LoL!
Ricky The Tank with his trusty EBR - Jorden there to keep Ricky safe (or to use as cover!!) These guys work well together and always bring a smile to my face :)
Mark G also rallied his Team throughout the day. He seemed at home with Steves PDW too !! Team Captain is yours on the next R.I.F.T. Day Mark!
Lee W was in the shadows - defense role.....
Dave G seemed to enjoy his new G36k ! He was hitting players with it before they had even got out of bed ! Wow that has some range ! Conor P - make sure you come back next time !
Matt B looked after one of the new lads that need his professional help - Thanks Matt.
Ben and Alex = Awseome! Enough said! Rambo displayed his usual Heroics while Hugo makes it all look easy.... Veterans in the making!
Karl took charge of Red Team this time round and guess what? Yup, Reds Won!
Karl also went on a killing spree - taking 8 or 9 Blues out in one sweep!

Thanks to our Ladies Mo & Hazel on the Camera(s) - as usual, without their support and help we would not have such a varied gallery section!

Steve and Simon were Marshalls for the day and made my job alot easier - Massive thanks to them!

Tim - Thank for the use of your Land - it is without doubt a pleasure to play on. Thanks to your lads friends for taking part too!

I am always looking for feedback and ideas that YOU want to do .... so please be kind enough to post below if there is anything you would like to comment on.....good day/bad day/ideas, etc etc......

Remember - R.I.F.T. Airsoft is all about YOU - Your Ideas, Your Day Out !

Please discuss......

For the future, i will run head first at any gun except that PDW, that thing scared me. so please put me on mark/steve's team! :P

Massive thanks tony for the day and marshalls/camera girls.

You will now be known as


I like that :p

2nd April 2012, 11:38 PM
Thanks Tony , had an awesome day. Ahhhhh you had to mention the fact Every gun i touched instantly lost battery. I told you its all the Energy drink I am used to consuming. My body drains anything with energy inside it.

Dispite the fact i killed all your gear :( and im really sorry for loosing the pin , no idea how i did it ! link me to a place to buy you a replacment . I had a great day and my body is aching ! Me and Gary were whining at work like little puppys becuase our bodys are just pure pain right now. Feel like ive ran a marathon with a set of weights in my hands haha.

2nd April 2012, 11:53 PM
Glad you had a great time Ricky :)

My friend Keith knows a guy who custom builds the locating pin, so no worries there.

It's not your fault it fell out - bad design in my opinion :)

Hope to see you soon mate, Tone.

3rd April 2012, 12:41 AM
haha ricky im not the only one then, i walked into the office like i had been raped. every one asking why i'm walking funny. when i say "Its because it hurts." that doesn't help the matter at all....

3rd April 2012, 01:12 AM
Yes me and Gary got a few comments about spending the night with "Drogba" lol .. and trying get get computer games out of the bottom draw .. just to find customers puzzled at why your unable to pull yourself back up from the floor. Was a pile of fun haha

3rd April 2012, 06:59 AM
Awesome people, awesome day, awesome organisation. As always, the fun we have is hard to beat! Looking forward to the next one already, especially if I get my first RIF by then!!

Thanks for organising the day Tony and also a big thanks to the marshals and photographers.

Oh and guys: Stretch ;] I couldn't get down the stairs after my first airsoft game, I was a prisoner in my own bedroom! lol, i soon learned from that mistake!

3rd April 2012, 07:30 AM
Was a great day and everyone from both sides played extremely well. Sorry to ginger dave and tank for the various placed love bites caused by my PDW after the tower assault. Dave, you will need more than a little pistol to get revenge! Roll on the next game :)

3rd April 2012, 04:41 PM
I nearly had my revenge! if only i had cocked the other pistol before attempting to take you guys from behind, although i did have a clear shot on you from the heap but had to try for the close up and personal kill :p

3rd April 2012, 04:47 PM
You always need your pistol cocked if you are taking from behind.....So they say!

Hey Guys,

Just like to say a massive thankyou to you all for making my Birthday and my first airsoft experience an amazing and wicked time! Me, Rob and Jack had such a laugh and was made to feel very welcome by you all on the day!

We are hoping to come along again as i'm affraid to say it but we could be a little hooked on it, haha! :p

being put in the tower for 5 minutes was such a laugh even tho i think everyone was aiming for my head :)

Hopefully we will see you all again very soon and once again thanks for a wicked day!
