I think we have 30 or so rooms booked, but I will get a hard count.
Out of curiosity, how many AFTE people have booked so far?
Unfortunately we're probably not going to be able to do it
. Between maternity leave and a possible trip to France next year I'm not sure about a second week-long vacation in 2014.

Newest stuff from former USSR, Ukraine and Romania claimed as sources for the ammunition, currently available in standard Warsaw Pact calibers. This ammunition is claimed to be exclusively imported by Century Arms (just like the old B-West days!). I am investigating the exact sources, see next posting for head stamp.
