Hey gang. It's 3:30am. I'm still awake. It's been a long day getting set up for OP: Lion Claws X - Evolution Real World at the former George Air Force Base military housing complexes. The Area of Operation is absolutely insane!!! So insane, that I politely forced my good friend Dave into taking some video for us to show those of you who couldn't make it out here for the weekend. In case you can't tell from the video, I'm very glad I've recently had a tetanus shot. There are nails and broken glass all over the place, not to mention holes in the second story flooring and uncovered sewer drain/manholes (no jokes, please) throughout the field. Treacherous would be putting it lightly. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the footage.
While numbers have not been confirmed, the event is expecting over 500 players, as I'm sure I've mentioned in prior posts.
My only complaint at the moment is the 30+ mph high desert winds we're currently dealing with. It kind makes dealing with a pop-up tent a bit difficult. Hopefully it dies down for game play, otherwise we're all just going to have to stand right next to each other to actually shoot one another. It's pretty bad, but I'm still stoked to be here. Please send positive thoughts in the direction of our AO so that we can enjoy this rare opportunity to play at an exclusive location.
I'll try to keep you updated here on the blog as the weekend progresses.
