The first stop on the Let's Battle Tour is less than a month away! On July 15, we’re teaming up with our buddies at Drive a Tank to host a big bash for Wargamers like you. Cruise in an APC, meet your clanmates, stuff your face with great BBQ, and get in some game time at our 40 game stations!

 

It’s not too late to get in on the action! Plus, 100% of the proceeds from your ticket will be donated to our Project VALOR (Veterans & Loved Ones Responsibility) charity program and divided up between all four participating charities.

 

There's still time to get a ticket for the Drive a Tank event! And don't forget: the Let's Battle Tour is FREE for kids, veterans and active military!

 

Are you planning to go to the Drive a Tank stop on the Let's Battle Tour? Say hi and find out who else may be going!

I will be more than likely be going as well... just wondering do I have to reserve spots for kids if they are free?   I have 2 and the system lets you select only one?  Also do kids get the stuff or is that paying members only? my son is 12 and plays with me.  2.5 hour drive for me so not too bad

Wish I wasn't working. Tanks smashing cars sounds WAY more fun than a corporate-mandated "training days"... :(

I'm heading up from Illinois. I'll be in Kasota on the 14th around noon. Any chance you WG_NA guys need help with anything? I'm happy to volunteer.

Tickets were $20 apiece when I bought them in May and now they're free. Do the $20 dollar shirts say "SUCKER" across the back?

  Really looking forward to this event.  It will have been 4 years tomorrow since the last time WG came to Minnesota.  I have a lot of people coming who have no idea about WoT but still intrigued by the unique opportunity presented.  See you there!

We committed to the event well before the anyone knew free tickets were be going to be available. I'm guessing they didn't get the response they thought they would so they thought they could get more with free tickets. Lets hope the people that payed well in advance get something more.

From what I'm looking at, we got the VIP ticket. The people who got the (free) general admission ticket only get a non-custom Let's Battle Tour T-Shirt and a normal identification badge, while we get all the other fancy custom stuff.

I suspect this is correct. Besides, all the fees go to Project Valor. I am a veteran and am bringing my 11 yr old son. I paid for both and dont mind one bit that since I am a vet and my son is young enough, I could have gotten both of the VIP tickets for free.

 

The other thing to remember is that at a certain point, they have to stop printing them so they can get them out to the site for everyone. After that, its just a head count measure.

well got nothing back on parking from wg since I have been there before I can only guess they will open up the field for parking perhaps. the parking lot itself can only hold like 30 cars fyi. The guy who owns drive a tank is passionate about his collection and the last time I was there I was told by one of the staff that he would be fitting his easy 8 sherman out with a tennis ball gun since federal reg's don't allow the actual cannon to be able to fire. This is one of the ways to get around that. The staff that runs the place are very knowledgeable. I am not sure if they will be covering the event or not. When you walk in be sure to take a good look at the weapon walls. They do have a wide assortment of weaponry that you do not typically see anymore. The forecast is looking good a high of 90 degrees and no precipitation hope it stays that way
