Come out and join in and bring a friend, I have at least 5 of my loaner tanks & M-50 IR Cannon prepped and ready to go. I would like to see this be our largest turn out yet, more guys know about this hobby. But what they don’t know the meet it is not all about IR battling, it is much, much more, you can just come to discuss,,, whatever or Painting, Mechanical ideas / solutions, and Electrical & IR systems. Oh and definitely trying to find an answer to your broken tank or new project problem that has you stumped.

Thanks,

Phil

No not raining bad here, it will be sunny the next 2 days and Saturday will be sunny so we won't even have a puddle. I will scout the IR battle field tomorrow with my WSN M-16 Halftrack and video tape it! It should be prefect and hopefully we have a little green scale folage that has popped up. The only way I can see it getting canceled if it rains cats & dogs Firday night or if it is predicted heavy rain Saturday, like a storm coming in Right now the prediction is it will be sunny and the desert ground is so dry the little rain that we have today will not even be evident tomorrow.

Still On

Oh yes we had a little rain on Wednesday, but the Battle is ON, I was at the spot this morning and by Saturday it should be completely dry! God willing, my wife reminded me to say but the prediction is for a sunny day creaping up to mid 70's

Here is the scouting report from the field:



M 16 T 19 Halftrack Scouts Battle Field (3 min 16 sec)











See you there..

Phil





See you there..

Come on out Herman,, well if not see you in April.

We had a good turn out, and every battle had at least 5 per side and most of the time 6 or 7 per side. Thanks to all the folks that came down from the LA area. Probably Aimee’s Sturmtiger won the award for menace on the battle field. Although the Super Pershing did real well, other than some T-81 track jumping,, nagging issue. It was one of the last tanks alive on the first battle so it still fought well. It did not get the chance to go up against Aimee’s Sturmtiger, maybe next time. Actually the Halftrack might be the one to kill that thing, with it’s speed and rapid fire, but I tried to Baha (4x4) it and got high centered, so we’ll never know, well at least until next time. Harvey & Milo showed up and Milo is getting to a decent battler, but he was a huge help with new kids, thanks Milo.
Glad to see Dan and his son Jacob, I meant to thank Jacob’s mom for letting him off yard clean up duty. I hope some of you are learning you have to PM your tanks they just can’t sit on the shelf and then pull them out for the day of the battle, and expect them to run perfect. For whatever reason, IR battling really puts your tank to the test, it will find the weakest part and break it.

My wife show up around noon and brought some potato salad which was a nice treat. David’s wife was there, nice to finally meet her, and a new couple from the LA area; Victoria & Maurice. And with Jeff and Aimee, it was cool to have more ladies at the battle. I took a few pics and got a little video but nothing of us battling, too busy just trying to enjoy the battle. A lot of others took pics & video maybe they will send it to me or post it up?

Here are some pics of the layout, and some of the tanks. I need to let the City know that we are out growing the cement Gazebo, and we will need it enlarged!
