Cheers Coldwave appreciate that dude! Any idea which particular camo you guys are going to run as I'll need to pack something appropriate and I'll contact the organisers to see if I can arrange a hire weapon for the weekend (or look into brining my ptw across with me but I imagine that could become a massive ballache!).
I'll keep an eye on this thread but if a specific event/team thread is created would someone be so kind as to tag me or pm me as I only get on here every few days. Cheers
Team RAGE will be attending this one in full swing. Not sure how many are assigned to a specific squad, but we've got a (hopefully soon to be) 10 man element. If there is room for extras awesome, shit maybe we can make an MiA Platoon?
EDIT: I was also thinking green team. Do you have to be full camouflage or can you get away with M81 pants and OD green top?
DUB edit: Dat map drop doe.
Someone wanna slap grid lines on this and make that a thing?
We'll likely not fill out the entire 11 man cap, if some people want to hang lone wolf for a minute. Or PM me if you're interested in rolling with us, I'll likely be taking the squad leader billet if someone else on our team doesn't step up, but it's always good to gun with dudes that know what they're doing.
Uniform requirements at the Blacksheep event are no solid colors and the top and bottoms have to match. Gear color is irrelevant and as posted earlier squad sizes are capped at 11 split into two fire teams and the squad leader.

If a squad is around 11 that is ok. Some times we have larger squads some times we have smaller. But the 11 member squad is based on the Army squad makeup: 1 SL, 2 FTL, 2 Automatic Riflemen, and 6 riflemen. You are limited to two SAW's per squad.
eagledriver, is it possible to register and chrono on Saturday? I see on Friday there is also a briefing? Reason I ask is because I have mandatory job training the week of the event and I'm not sure yet what the schedule is looking like on Friday August 15th, so I don't know if I'll make it on Friday before everything closes according to the event schedule.
G&P MK23 - SMP G&P MK18 - STAR FNC x2 - Tokyo Marui MP5 - CA M24 - UTG M3 - Cybergun M&P 9
Just read this in the "rule set": "12. ORANGE TIP is required. It is important to differentiate our toys from the real deal, especially when most Operation Blacksheep events are conducted on military training facilities. If the orange tip is the only thing that gives you away tactically, great job!"
Does this mean a painted orange tip? or can you do like one strip of tape around your muzzle? Pretty lame rule if you ask me either way.
Also I guess we're allowed to shoot up to 400 fps with a .25s with no minimum engagement distance I can see.

You are ok to arrive on Saturday but get there early as it always seems like the time is not enough to get everything ready!
And for the orange tip, orange tape is ok (I use orange hockey tape). We do not normally have the orange tape, some times people do, but someone just needs to bring some orange electrical or hockey tape. I prefer hockey tape because it is not reflective and well we would be in Michigan. We do the orange tape partly because some bases don't require us to register our guns but we don't want them to start making us. For example, Fort Drum actually required us to register each airsoft gun we brought after the Fort Hood incident.
The FPS is indeed 400/.25 and although there is not an official "bang" rule, we have not (yet) needed one because players just normally have done the right thing. It takes a lot to want to go to a 24 hour OP, let alone make it all of the way through, and the caliber of players so far has been to tap the enemy on the shoulder and quietly say "you are dead." At Skirmish in PA we had a green player quietly tag 6 enemy players that way due to the fog of war!
