that is encouraging. An event like this puts a huge strain on my team as well. I am trying to do this all well in advance. lots of peices to the puzzle.
i think you are right about americans traveling for airsoft events. there are some national events people flock to like mecca. for instance irene.
I'm thinking of having ohio players be civilian or indigenous personnel. basically role players that the national ca & us players can coerce into being on their side. it also provides a way where i can make the simulation more like an ongoing war than a feirce battle. the ohio players would likely be refs as well.
i figure this way we can have a hundred man event but then have 100 ref/roleplayers/militiamen running around to keep it crazy.
