The club had a great training session over the weekend, in conjunction with members of 6th AARR and Wiking at the 20th GMB home base in Georgetown, TX. On Friday night, we conducted training on basic tactical and operational concepts on the Brcko terrain board, and went to dinner at the Walburg Restaurant in Walburg, for an authentic German meal. On Saturday, we had a good home cooked breakfast, and then had a briefing for the day's activities on a terrain model of the training area. After the briefing, members went out to the vehicles, and were trained on how to drive a standard transmission vehicle (stick shift) on the Willys Jeep, how to drive the Chevy C15A truck, and how to drive the T-16 Universal Carrier. The Jeep training was conducted in the training area and on the hard ball road, the C15A training was conducted on the hard ball road, and the T16 training was conducted in the training area on the woods course. Members of the Wiking conducted work on putting up the shelter for the Maultier project and initial assessments and planning for executing the Maultier project. At lunchtime, everyone took a break and had an authentic British Compo Ration meal of Meat and Veg, canned brown bread and canned peaches and pears. After lunch, driver training and work on the Maultier continued until everyone got experience on all the vehicles who wanted it. So now we have the beginnings of a trained pool of drivers in the club. The weather broke into rain in the late afternoon, and with a forecast of pouring rain for Sunday, the training weekend was called to a close on Saturday evening.
