    Airsoft meetup - Photoshoot (part two)

    Back in July, over 40 FK members gathered in the small town of Dorking, United Kingdom, for a two day airsoft meetup. In between games, the PR team grabbed a couple of FK members aside to immortalize their presence with a picture of two. Just like our first part of this series, we asked (kidnapped) three FK powerhouse members to take a pose. Meet Fidelias, Cyanide and Sarissa.
     
     
    Fidelias


    This is the second time you've taken part in an FK airsoft weekend, the first one being at Shellshock woods back in 2017. How would you summarize both weekends and what made you come back for a second weekend this summer?
    "Both weekends were great from a social point of view, however I felt the site and organisation of the 2019 one was much better - instead of day-long games at the 2017 meetup, we played multiple smaller games across different areas, which gave a lot more variety and a chance to have some CQB, sneaky-beaky stalking and just pitched long-range firefights at different times of the day. The site was much more 'developed' with regards to structures and layout. I came to second weekend because meeting up with people irl the first time was just great - it surprisingly didn't feel awkward at all. From the first night, it felt like it was almost that period between getting into the server and SL briefing. We just sat around, got kit sorted, chatted shit and had a laugh. Meeting a bunch of new people that I've not really interacted with (more on that later) was a real draw for the second weekend, but it was really awesome to re-connect with guys from the first meetup too."
    As a long standing FK member, did you get to know a lot of new people during this meetup?
    "While I've been part of FK for a while now, I kind of burnt out a little on Arma and stopped playing as often. Following that, I developed a chronic fatigue issue, which knocked me on my ass for the last 9 months and I stopped being online at all, pretty much. Meeting a bunch of great new people and having an awesome time kinda re-vitalised me a little, and I've made it back to Arma a couple of times since. We have some.... interesting people... in FK, and some of the things that went down at the weekend really highlighted how much this community brings together really disparate people with a common interest. I feel like the majority of the people at the meetup this year probably didn't know who I was, but I hope to re-introduce myself to the members of the community who have joined since I took my unplanned hiatus in games in the near-future. When the 2020 meetup comes around, I'm hoping to be a fixture in the community again."
    Cyanide
                  
    How did you get into airsoft? Was the FK 2017 meetup your first experience?
    "Yes! It was. I had always wanted to get into airsoft, and the 2017 meet was the perfect excuse."
    What's the most enjoyable memory you have of the 2019 meetup?
    "Getting absolutely smashed in Jay's Fuckfest. It got my heart pumping unlike any other airsoft game type I've ever played. Non stop action, that."
    Gear list
    "Krytac Warsport M4 is my only piece of kit. And a bunch of go-pros, ofc. #youtuberlyfe"
     
     
    Sarissa


     
    Hi @Sarissa, could you talk to us about the outfit?
    "My outfit is inspired by the US troops active in Operation Gothic Serpent in Somalia, 1993. Most people think of the 75th Rangers or the Delta Force operators that were in Somalia and who have been immortalised by the film 'Black Hawk Down'. But there was another unit deployed as part of Task Force Ranger who very rarely receive any credit at all, and that is the 10th Mountain Division. These guys were actually deployed prior to TF Ranger as part of Operation Restore Hope. They were responsible for opening communication and transportation lines in and out of Mogadishu. As such, they used to roll in Humvee convoys most of the time and would occasionally ditch their Alice web gear in their vics and simply load their ballistic vests up with magazines. That's the look I went for, and instead of carrying the Alice, I just filled pockets with magazines for quick access."
    If an FK member, with zero airsoft experience, would be interested in joining the 2020 airsoft meetup, how would you convince him/her?
    "The airsoft is really a sideshow to the meetup, its much more about actually meeting the people you've spent months or years talking and gaming with. Airsoft is a fun addition, doesn't really hurt much and gives you some great stories. If you want to meet people then come to 2020! "
    gear list
    "I'm carrying an XM177E2 which was an early precursor to the M4. A few of them were still kicking around in the 90s and were sent to Somalia alongside some of the newer rifles as a testbed. I'm wearing Desert Camoflague Uniform (DCU), which is also known as Tri-Colour. The helmet is an ex-issue Kevlar PASGT with a 6 colour 'Choc-Chip' cover. The vest (that isn't too visible) is a Woodland PASGT. Gloves are the US army Nomex flight gloves, and the boots are a modern US Marine patrol boot. Actual 90's era desert boots are pretty expensive...
    This photo is an example of some of the 10th Mountain in Somalia, showing just how varied their gear could be. "

    Public Relations News Room
    The Public Relations Team has been working tirelessly on a major upcoming event. More information will be announced on the 1st of November! Keep an eye on the Twitter and the Front Page! 
    INTREP MEGA THREAD - After discussing different ways on getting feedback from the community we've decided to open a mega thread specifically for the INTREPs please check it out and leave any comments, suggestions, or reactions! The INTREPs are one of the few things the PR team does specifically for the community and without your feedback we can not improve them! 
    In Case You Missed It
    Mental Health Awareness - Mental Health is a growing conversation. No longer is it seen as taboo to open up to your friends and discuss your struggles. We all deal with our own demons and especially around this time of year with the changing of the seasons, the upcoming holidays, and financial pressures that come along with that. We're all human and therefore subject to life's ups and downs. FK is not known for being a place to air your emotions and hug it out via the internet... but we are a community of friends who all have our own personal struggles. It's hard sometimes to know what to do or what to say when a friend comes to you with something as serious as suicidal thoughts, or plans. Our Community Member @Ripley has brought to our attention a free online course that will walk you through how to respond to situations such as from multiple perspectives. Please take a moment of your time to check it out. 
    Destiny 2 Clan - Legendo has obtained permission from the CM team to make an Official FK Clan on Destiny 2. As the game grows more popular within our community we'd love to see more people representing FK in Destiny 2! Also, keep an eye on the calendar for upcoming Raids!
    Escape from Tarkov patch - Escape from Tarkov Beta - 0.12 Patch has been released! Check out the new epic trailer!
     
    Community Spotlight
    Tobe's Charity - "Myself and my American Football team will be partaking in Movember, a charity event where you grow a mustache in aid of helping to provide awareness and help for prostate and testicular cancer and mental health issues for men." Please visit @Tobe's charity, share it on facebook, twitter and donate if you can! 
    Secret Santa - It's that time again! Make sure to sign up for the Secret Santa! Things are going to be slightly different this year, as we'll be matching those who live in North America with others who also live in North America. Same goes for those living in Europe. The last day for sign up is November 15th!
    Sorry about the shorter INTREP this week guys. Been putting most of my time and energy into our upcoming event. I can't wait to share it all with you! - R
