Yes it’s that time again for our monthly newsletter. Letting you guys know the ins and outs of what we have been up to in the last month and what’s to come.
First however we must start with some truly heartbreaking news.
After a short battle with Meningitis, Robbie’s wife Emma sadly passed away last week.
Emma lived to help others and worked tirelessly to make sure everyone that needed help got it, whether that was family, friends or as part of her job working at Soham Lodge in Cambridgeshire were she was loved by all the residents and their families.
Her happy, warm personality was impossible to ignore and she immediately brightened whatever room she entered.
Emma leaves a huge hole in our lives and of course with her son Lorcan and Robbie who is beyond heartbroken and devastated.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you both in this time of tragedy.
So to site news.
The site continues to go from strength to strength and continues to welcome plenty of new, and familiar faces every month.
Night games returned during June and we are planning to continue with these as soon as possible.
We have been inundated with requests for our filmsim games to return. We have listened to you guys, and we are planning to welcome these back in August. Stay tuned for more info soon.
While Rob is away, Josh and the marshal team will continue to provide fantastic weekends of airsoft.
Val and the BL team are back this month with a brand new filmsim story, codenamed: The Fuel Wars. Join them to find out what happens when a fuel crisis sparks armed conflict in the US southern states, where Homeland is struggling to fight back.
Battle Lakes will also be bringing back full weekend bookings so you can join us for both days of airsoft goodness without the travel.
Johnny and the Alpha crew return this weekend with another epic filmsim of their own – Operation: Dragon’s Teeth.
Find out what happens when Trump is re-elected and throws the world into crisis. With a new superweapon threatening global security.
Full catering is also back onsite and will be available all weekend.
IMPORTANT – Alpha has also enacted a sniper ban on all weapons that chrono above 350fps due to extreme overgrowth in some areas.
Boston and the Bravo team are taking a few weeks off after months providing packed weekends filled to the rafters of airsoft goodness.
Business as usual will begin again at the end of the month when they return for a classic night game/skirmish weekend.
That’s not all however; in September Camp Bravo will also be hosting their first Airsoft Boot Fair on the 18th/19th September between 10am-3pm each day. They plan to have a number of airsoft retailers, techs, and a fully stocked cafe for food and drink. Not to mention the massive range of activities: from airsoft, to laser tag, to mini tanks that will also be available on the day. Stay tuned for more information.
With final restrictions due to be lifted later this month, we will still be encouraging face masks in any indoor areas. However, this will now be your choice. We will also continue to place sanitiser stations at all our sites for your use.
We need to remember that while we move closer every day the pandemic is not over yet.
Well that’s another month done and once again a massive thank you to everyone that has joined us at any of our sites and supported us in these first few months back.

As always keep safe, look after each other and we will see you soon.
