Stand by for incredible necro post:

So I had to register and reply to this topic just for the #feels
I was just having a conversation about a "certain incident" that I'm famed for (I'll digress shortly) at the old DV site with a few friends and googled "Boys Village, Dragon Valley" this thread was at the top of the list...

SO, I played at Boys village twice back in the day (Back when I was a whipper snapper) Both times were some of the most amazing airsoft I have ever played. My first urban experience to which every CQB/urban site I have played at since has been judged by...

I agree that place was a health and safety nightmare... I remember seeing people climbing up onto the roof of one of he buildings to ninja a group of players from behind... I also remember getting shot in the back of the head by a guy who had found a crawl space in one of the ceilings and was hiding away in there... :)

The first time I played at Boys Village (also searching just that brings up some odd results...) we took a 5 hour drive down from the North in the back of a sketchy Fiat van. Met up with a lot of the airsoft.org/ascuk regulars, including a bunch of the "Insomniac army" from #airsoft on the old mIRC channel... (Although the only name I can remember right now is Thormann...)
The day was amazing and was topped off with me running from the gym through a haze of orange smoke and tracer fire and falling head first into a certain pool... Proper concussion job right there!

The second time we played was about a year later when WASPS team turned up in full force for a weekender (Where the legendary Silvafox was hung upside down over the stairs so he could have his boot prints on the ceiling) Another intense and amazing game which ended up again in the gym, with me tripping over what I seem to remember was a 3x2 screwed into the floor (I think it was to support some makeshift cover) and hitting my knee on what I guess was the only brick in the whole room. Broken bones ftw :) Luckily the guy who drove us down is a paramedic and strapped me up good and proper for the 5 hour trip home lmao...

Absolutely love that place. It'd be top of my bucket list to play there one more time if I thought it was feasible!

In other news we also made a trip down to Caerwent for the very first day... If it wasn't a 5 hour drive we'd be there every game :)

I do have some very poor quality photographs of one of the times we played there somewhere... I'll get them online at some point...

Sorry for the necro post :)

Goddamn, I never had a chance to play at the old site. It does look and sound amazing. H&S really does make the world a more boring place, climbing roofs, into crawl spaces is exactly the kind of stuff I'd do.

Ah, the good old days, it was a simpler time with far more injuries... ;)

Good to hear from you Magaz, you'll have to make that 5 hour trek down over the summer, make a weekend of it.

It's on the cards Firkit! One of the guys I play with had his very first airsoft experience at the "DV2" opening day... He's been keen to get back down for years... I think it's time to dust off the CBMPC! Battle wagon for a long trip ;)
