Charity Event @ Skirmish Notts on 22nd & 23rd June


Well summer is upon us again and the nights are getting longer and warmer, so it’s time for the annual Skirmish Charity event.  As some of  you may already know the Skirmish Network as a whole, and in  the early days with Steve Bull with the over 35 tournament series, have raised tens of thousands of pounds for national and local charities with the emphasis on having a purely fun event for everybody to enjoy.

This year’s event will be held at Skirmish Nottingham in Sherwood Forest.  The confirmed dates are Saturday  22nd   and Sunday  23rd June.

The format of the event will be as follows.

Site opens after Saturday rental customers have left at 5.00 pm.

A Floodlit camping area will be available on the sup air field, along with a sumo wrestling arena, where all comers are welcome to have a go.

A 5 man mini formula 5 man event will be held on the Hyperball field with games up to 10 minutes long, against the clock, play as many times as you want. Teams and be made up of any number of players with only 5 players on the pitch at any one time.

One our marshals is a singer in a band and will be running the evening Karaoke for all you budding Susan Boyles out there….

Once its dark enough the Village Field and the castle will be lit up with strobe and laser lights plus blue & orange flashing lights etc. Games can be played on these fields until 2.00 am.  

After the games have finished, players are welcome to participate in a few sandy’s and aperitifs before seriously killing the karaoke

The next day we will be running a 2 stage scenarios game.  Stage 1 – To attack the small village of Nottingham and rescue the Maid Marion from the jail, and deliver her safely to Robin Hood.

Break for Lunch and charity auction

Stage 2 - To storm Nottingham castle to find and capture the evil sheriff of Nottingham and deliver him to the gallows.

All the above will be FREE to all participants, players, vendors,. Free parking, camping, 5 man, big game, everything.   We are supporting 3 charities this year and there will donation boxes at each event for folks to put as much or as little in as they want, hopefully they all have a fantastic time and dig deep.

The 3 worthy causes are Help for Heroes, McMillan Nurses and RSPCA.  We all know and respect what our armed services give up for us, we all know someone who has died or is affected by cancer and finally, how many times do we see people abusing and abandoning  animals, These poor creatures are supposed to be our best friends and loyal companions.

The event will be site approved paint only, This is more of a quality issue because of damaging paint used at the last D10 event against our wishes which is still around. To keep overheads as low as possible air will be supplied to 3000 psi from our onsite system.

Please, Please, Please can you help support this year’s event by either running a trade stand,   donating prizes for the auction, supplying paintballs for sale on the day, or even sending up players or volunteers to help.  Better still do all of these and come up and play yourself. It’s a fun event and will be good to get everybody together.

Please can you help spread the word about the event, you know where we are, right in the middle of the UK and really easy  to get from all major towns.

Many Thanks in anticipation and I hope you can personally make the trip.  Any questions please give us a call  0115 9230730
