YGP in Spruce Grove. From Calgary so we don't play the Central part of the province too much.
Directions to the Field:
3 Hrs from Calgary, 30kms east from Wetaskiwin
Saftey was excellent, barrel bags and plugs were in abundance and the staff was excellent at enforcing it. Everything was netted and I can honestly say that this is probably the most safety concious field that I've ever played at.
The scenario was a "Fantasy" setting and all of us from our team, while willing to try it, were colder to the idea of a non-military themed game. But the Knights from Silver Creek really pulled it off and we enjoyed ourselves immensly. Dragons, Gods- both good and evil, Black Knights etc. You get the idea, and very fun!
The reffing and staff were also very good. It makes such a difference when the people that run the show are ensuring that the players are having a good time by effectively enforcing the rules and keeping the "spirit" of the game going by not being rules nazis. Good job.
The only downside, as mentioned by Warrdogg, is the lack of treed areas for us Milsim players to do our thing. It would be nice to have a scenario that would have one team fight their way into the town from the woods or vice versa. But the total urban CQB setting was very cool indeed.
Overall an excellent time and we'll be back for a game next year. Thanks again for having us up!
