Hey Ma! I’m on the News!

In some cases, ending up on the news can be a bad thing. However, in this case, The Santa Clarita Valley Signal, a local news company based out in Valencia California, sent a reporter to cover John Lu’s Army Birthday Combat Experience at Rene Valuzat’s Blue Cloud Movie Ranch. Airsoft GI was fortunate enough to participate in the event, and was even featured in the article Luke Money wrote about the event!

The event hosted around 250 players attempting to battle over the control of a small rural Afghan town, complete with an imposing temple, dark alleyways, and collapsed room. Tim & Darren, from Airsoft GI team up with Jet from Desert Fox, Chris Bast from Warfighter Airsoft, Charlie from LevelCap Gaming, & Sam from G&G in order to help repel Opfor and push for an American victory. The event lasted from 9 in the morning until 5 in the afternoon. Through dry dust winds, under a relenting sun in 95 degree weather, our team managed to hold our own.
