The 2017 Airsoft Surgeon Championship To Go Ahead Despite RedWolf UK Fire

5th Airsoft Surgeon European Championship Logo

The first thing on my mind after hearing the news that the RedWolf Airsoft UK warehouse in Tewkesbury was hit by fire was to call up Chris Kong to ask him and the rest of this crew how they are doing. He said that all staff members have been accounted for and that is the most important thing for him.

The first thing that they needed to do is to find temporary offices to run the operations of RedWolf Airsoft UK whilst fire investigators sort out what caused the fire at their warehouse which is in the Northway Trading Estate. Until then, operations of the company will remain sluggish until they get up to speed. That includes the online orders in which RedWolf Airsoft HK, the HQ, will take up the slack of processing the orders. No walk-in sales for now and they hope their business customers as well as individual customers bear with them. The airsoft community in the UK has rallied to their support and understanding.

One of the things that I and Chris talked about is the status of the Airsoft Surgeon European Championship 2017, which is set to be held on the 5th to 6th of August 2017 at the StrikeForce CQB at the Morelands Trading Estate in Gloucester, 25 minutes away from the damaged RedWolf Airsoft UK warehouse.

He mentioned that all paraphernalia such as trophies, banners, giveaways, prizes, and other materials that were being prepared for the event were all lost in the fire. The event, going on its 5th year, is the largest airsoft competition in Europe, with almost 200 airsoft practical shooters from Europe, Asia, and South America coming over the UKPSA-sanctioned Level I Action Air Event.

Still, Chris said that the event will go ahead, there is no turning back. With just three weeks left for them to prepare for the event, perhaps the UK airsoft practical shooting community and other well meaning individuals can be called upon to help as Chris and the rest of the RedWolf Airsoft UK crew have their hands full in restarting business operations. If interested, individuals can drop a message either at the RedWolf Airsoft UK or Airsoft Surgeon European Championship Facebook Page and ask what help is needed.

As posted by Chris at the Airsoft Surgeon European Championship Facebook Page, “’The show must go on’ Shooters, I hope you are ready.”

Indeed, the show must go on.
