OPERATION: Rawhide 2
We are very grateful to have helped plan and run Operation: Rawhide 2 hosted by Boneyard Airsoft Events at Rawhide Ranch USA in Nashville, Indiana. It was a blast to have players from as far as Missouri, Chicago, and Michigan to come down to Indiana to sling some plastic with us. The weather took a nasty turn on the event’s first night (Saturday) and began to snow heavily which caused the player’s raid to be partially obscured by the snowflakes and low light. Regardless, the players put up a great fight against the OPFOR and returned to the Assembly Area for some great food, camaraderie and drinks (for those 21+) from the bar on site.
The second day was much larger and had many more players on site to execute a large clearing operation through the forest around Rawhide Ranch. The players launched squads into the forest to clear out Steel Brigade (OPFOR) and had a lot of tough fights over the unforgiving, steep, hilly terrain. The map doesn’t do the AO justice (as far as the steep terrain is concerned) but it was definitely a factor in the movements of the players and of the OPFOR. The players repeatedly attacked and slowly cleared through each phase line (white lines on the map above), but they were just too much for the OPFOR and eventually overran their position. In the end, the players were successful in defeating the OPFOR and preventing the spread of Steel Brigade in the AO.
Thank you to all of the other vendors who came out:
