I have given it a try, eventhou I'm norwegian :P
There is two more aticals linked in the newspaper. One just statet that Berget it's not useing the old military site, and the other is about protest against the games, due to the animal life. Sine this is the time during the year animals give birth. Some people is therefor afraid that all the noise we make will disrupt them.

The artical:

"In Safezone its magazine out, says AnnaCarin Löfgren, Press officer in Berget 8, the wargame which is currently being fought on Remsleberget of Sollefteå.

FACTS
Berget Events will organise Berget 8, Sweden’s largest Airsoft-events.
Airsoft is a hobby exercised with airsoftweapons.
A shot players must cry out HIT or MEDIC to highlight that he or she has been hit and must then to get to a spawn and wait for 30 minutes in order to play again.
There are no winners or losers. The objective of Berget 8 is to have such a good experience as possible and to have fun.
The game will be held in Sollefteå between Wednesday, 16 th and 19 th June

Artical
The entire event is structured around a scenario where the fictional country Poldavien sells uranium to finance its army. Something NAF (northen Alliance Force) do not accept and war breaks out.

– In total, it is 1 400 persons participating from more than 30 different countries and the taking it very seriously. For us, it takes throughout the year to plan ahead. I would not wish to speculate in how much money it will cost but it is all we draw in we add props. No one earns any money at the event. It is only volunters who works here.

We are approaching a checkpoint. Löfgren show them the Berget-crew card and we get to pass through. The guard gives us a long eye and I show him my little deathrag to show that I am not a spy from the enemy.

– We are now in games now and people take it seriously. This is the largest RPG of this type in Sweden.

A group warrior comes out of a tent. They are out on mission and hopes for a battle.

– This is their world, is now clear that they have given resentment against the enemy!

Gregorg Hoefkens or "Shaggrath" which is his nick in the game has come from France to participate.

– We have been out on patrol in the forest, traced and driven NAF whole days. At night sleep we in tents. It will become three days in the field."

This is a rough translation. Hope it will do!

The war is On!
Sollefteå

In SafeZone it's magazine out says Anna-Carin Lögfren, in charge of press for Berget 8, a war roleplaying game that is currently being fought on Remsleberget in Sollefteå.

The whole event is built up around a scenario where the imaginative country Poldavien is selling uranium in order to finance their army. Something that the NAF (Northern Alliance Force) doesn't accept and war breaks out.

- In total there are 1400 people participating from over 30 different countries and they take this game very seriously. For us it takes the whole year to prepare. I don't want to speculate in how much money it costs, but the money we get in we turn it into scenary. No one is making any money out of this event. There are only people with great passion that works here.

We are nearing a roadblock. Lögfren showes her CrewBadge and gets to pass. The guard on duty gives us a long searching look and I start to wave a little with my orange piece of cloth to show that I'm not a spy from the enemy forces.

- We are now inside the gamearea and people are taking it serious. This is the biggest roleplaying event of this kind in Sweden.

A group of hardend warriors emerges from a tent. They are going out on a mission and wishes for a firefight.

- This is their world, so I can understand why they have a grudge towards the enemyside.

Gregorg Hoefkens or "Shaggrath" that he calls himself in the game, has travelled as far as from France in order to participate.

- We have been out on patrols in the woods, tracking and hunting NAF the whole day. During the night we sleep in our tents. We stay for three days in the field.

Sfinx, you did great!

The 3rd Mtn. was always at the 1st base at the right moment! First we outflanked and mopped up a nice chunk of NAF forces in the forest, then we also stole that interview. :P

We certanly did. We where also recorded for the radio. They needed authentic airsoft sounds.
It was so funny ....
The producer wanted us to shoot and simulate airsoft battle with empty magazines. We explained him, that is no go cause it is bad for gearbox, so we shoot with bbs in mag. As soon as we started shooting in near bushes and screaming I cover you , go... go.. etc.. , some guys (i think Italians from 1st) ran into bushes and look for the enemy. :D One of our guys told them that it is only for the radio, but they didnt get it :)
