Operation Red Sleigh Down
THE GRINCHINATOR
Image

Desert Hawks Airsoft is proud to present the 13th annual Operation Red Sleigh Down on Saturday, December 16th 2017. Operation Red Sleigh Down is a benefit game that raises awareness about children in need this holiday season. Near the holiday season each year, we gather to play an organized airsoft event and fill a car with new unwrapped toys and then donate those toys to the USMC Toys For Tots program. Please consider coming out, helping those in need, and having a good time with us while you are at it.

To see what the community was able to donate in previous years visit the below link:
Toys 1 - RSD 2016
Toys 2 - RSD 2016
Marines - RSD 2016

Scenario:
Welcome to the 2017 annual Toys of Tots charity drive “Red Sleigh Down” this year is ‘THE GRINCHINATOR’.

In the year 2029, a computer called KrampusNet is fighting against a human resistance, after having nearly destroyed Christmas in 1997. KrampusNet has found a way to send some of its warriors, called Grinches, back in time. This is the story of the Grenchinator sent back through time to 1984 to steal Christmas… and kill the resistance leader's mother the seemingly innocent Sarah Nicholas-a woman whose unborn son will lead the human race to victory in a bitter future war with a race of machines. Sarah's only hope is a soldier sent by the resistance named Charlie Brown from that post-apocalyptic war, who has chased the Terminator back through time to 1984. The question is, can Sarah Nicholas survive long enough to have her child? If the The Grinchinator succeeds, mankind is doomed. The future of Christmas depends on which one finds her first... Or winning a battlefield style airsoft game at Sasco.

...yeah it doesn’t make sense to us either, just go with it because its going to be fun… and bring a toy.

Rules
General Rules:
Everyone MUST Read

Special Note
Radios are not required for this event, but are HIGHLY recommended due to how the objectives are spread out and the play is fluid. Mid cap magazines are encouraged but high cap magazines are allowed to be as inclusive as possible to all level of players. Please also note this event is being planned as a MILSIM Battlefield type event with a fun twist. This means that we expect limited return trips to cars and staging areas. There will not be long breaks at any time once we are underway, and we will not be breaking for a meal. Please be prepared to carry everything on your person that you need to play and stay on your feet, including plenty of water, spare batteries, and extra ammunition.

As has been the case for a few years now this will be a classic Battlefield style capture the flag event held at Sasco. We are looking to add additional flags this year to mix it up as well. Additionally, to get you all in the Christmas spirit at the start of the event admin will award a few bonus points for both sides for bringing and using a Red Santa hat as a death rag!

Please be advised we have moved the date of Red Sleigh Down this year to 12/16/17. It was done for two reasons. Reason one was that another event producer had to move their event to 12/2 with no other date options available and we didn't want either event to suffer so volunteered to move the date. The other reason is that due to National Guard and Reserve training weekends being what they are at the end of the year we wanted to make sure that our veterans were not blocked from attending and it looks like 12/16 was clear for both categories.

We sincerely apologize to those this creates a hardship or no-go situation for, that is certainly not intended. We wanted to be as accommodating as possible to others who are trying to bring life to events. We are looking forward to seeing many of you out on 12/16. Thank you for your flexibility and understanding.

Thank you all who made Red Sleigh Down 13 a huge success! This year was bigger and better then any year before and it's a direct result of YOU!

Here it is by the numbers! 1 truck stuffed full of toys. It came out to be 5 shopping carts full of toys! $59 in cash donations for more toys! On top of that we counted 172 attendees! Like I said the biggest year yet! Give yourselves a round of applause for really stepping up and supporting the USMC Toys for Tots program!

I want to thank all the staff help from the Desert Hawks for stepping up and lending a helping hand, you guys are rock! I also want to thank all the participants who made it out to the event, time line wise everything moved smoothly and we promise to run a bigger staff next year to help with hot spots.

That all said we love to hear feedback from you guys. We added the bonus pelican case objective and additional flags this year based off of past feedback and plan to do colored armbands for both teams and more admin staff next year based off of feedback and observations today.

Thanks once again for your support!
