4000+ Paintball Players to Recreate D-Day

Jim Thorpe, PA

– The Normandy Invasion was the largest seaborne invasion in history, involving almost three million troops crossing from England to Normandy to the then German-occupied France. In a re-creation of the fateful landing on eerily still German-held beaches, Skirmish will be converting their paintball field front acreage into the coast of Normandy on July 17th and 18th.

Landing crafts will disgorge US warriors from five locations for their assault across 75 yards of wide open beach-head complete with bunkers, tanks and disabled military helicopters. The German forces will be defending the shore lines in an attempt to keep the Allied troops out. Scenario players will also be able to interact with the French resistance fighters.

The Invasion of Normandy is a 2-day Paintball Scenario Game. The action begins precisely at 12:00 noon on Saturday, July 17th at the sound of an air-raid siren. The battle continues until 12:00 noon on Sunday, July 18th. Admission to the event is $59.95 per person and includes all necessary gear. Pre-registration before June 23th is strongly recommended. Official rules, information, and directions to the playing fields can be found at www.Skirmish.com (you’re already here!).

Skirmish has hosted The Invasion of Normandy for eight years now. Every year this scenario game continues to get bigger and better. Previously Skirmish broke a world record with over 4,320 scenario players at ION. This July, Skirmish has planned yet another weekend full of excitement; including a Free Friday (July 16th) Castle Night game on the World Famous Tippmann Castle & Tippmann City fields, free on-site camping, player raffle, costume contest, and a huge trade show… all the big names in the paintball industry will be there!
