LEARN IT MAY SAVE YOURS OR ANOTHERS LIFE
we are playing at war but the danger of Hypothermia and Frostbite are REAL
Normal body temperature in humans is 36.8°C (98.2°F). Hypothermia can be divided in three stages of severity.

* Stage 1

Body temperature drops by 1-2°C (1.8-3.6°F) below normal temperature (35-37°C or 95-98.6°F). Mild to strong shivering occurs. The victim is unable to perform complex tasks with the hands; the hands become numb. Blood vessels in the outer extremities constrict, lessening heat loss to the outside air. Breathing becomes quick and shallow. Goose bumps form, raising body hair on end in an attempt to create an insulating layer of air around the body (which is of limited use in humans due to lack of sufficient hair, but useful in other species). Often, a person will experience a warm sensation, as if they have recovered, but they are in fact heading into Stage 2. Another test to see if the person is entering stage 2 is if they are unable to touch their thumb with their little finger; this is the first stage of muscles not working.

* Stage 2

Body temperature drops by 2-4°C (3.8-7.6°F). Shivering becomes more violent. Muscle mis-coordination becomes apparent. Movements are slow and labored, accompanied by a stumbling pace and mild confusion, although the victim may appear alert. Surface blood vessels contract further as the body focuses its remaining resources on keeping the vital organs warm. The victim becomes pale. Lips, ears, fingers and toes may become blue.

* Stage 3

Body temperature drops below approximately 32 °C (89.6 °F). Shivering usually stops. Difficulty speaking, sluggish thinking, and amnesia start to appear; inability to use hands and stumbling is also usually present. Cellular metabolic processes shut down. Below 30 °C (86.0 °F), the exposed skin becomes blue and puffy, muscle coordination becomes very poor, walking becomes almost impossible, and the victim exhibits incoherent/irrational behavior including terminal burrowing or even a stupor. Pulse and respiration rates decrease significantly, but fast heart rates (ventricular tachycardia, atrial fibrillation) can occur. Major organs fail. Clinical death occurs. Because of decreased cellular activity in stage 3 hypothermia, the body will actually take longer to undergo brain death.

Yes, I will try to organize some weapons, both own and loaned, depends what car I will use to get there. Unfortunately I can not arm the whole company, but main point of the event is not on weapons training. In theory we will have some 98k's, some machine pistols and perhaps an MG34 or 42.

IF you have a de-ac or otherwise legal gun you absolutely insist to use feel free to send it to my home address via courire or air freight before the happening, and the gun will be waiting for you in the training area. Some airlines, such as Finnair, do allow guns on board as long as they are carried in the cargo hold and not in the cabin as hand luggage.

But don't try this on Ryanair otherwise you will experience some issues as I did in Oktober ;-) Even empty magazines are assimilated to "gun parts" and not even allowed in the cargo hold ...

OK, then we'll have some guns on the house. Too bad we don't have possibiliy to use firing range this year, but the new tricks and new accomodation + training area will compensate the lack of firing guns.

By the way, do remember to take your SOLDBUCHs with you. Feldgendarmerie will be there asking for proper ID documents, and you may be issued some paperwork to keep inside your Soldbuch. If we warm up the sauna you will get de-lousing certificate from it and so on.

Very nice!

There is not such nicer place to organize this kind of event, than a snowy Finnish terrain with a lake and sauna in it! :)
