Shifting Sands 2019
On January 18th and 19th, 2019, AZDRFOW and AMGAS will be presenting this year's Shifting Sands 2019. The theme is Operation Market Garden.

It is September 1944 and Montgomery has hatched a plan to end the war by Christmas...

Operation Market Garden was an ambitious plan to seize a series of bridges across Holland in a race to cross the Rhine and secure a foothold in Germany itself.

British and American Airborne divisions were tasked with seizing the bridges and holding them for British XXX Corp’s advance. For the most part, the operation goes according to plan however German resistance is stiffer than expected and what were assumed to be demoralized, green troops turned out to still have a lot of fight left in them. 

Shifting Sands: Market Garden will let you help decide the outcome! Will the Allies achieve ultimate victory and secure a bridgehead into Germany? Or will the Germans crush the overly ambitious British and Americans before they accomplish their goals?

Sign up for Shifting Sands : Market Garden here...

Registration payment is not due until the morning of the event. When you register you will need to select what side and type of list you will be bringing (Armored, Infantry, Airborne, etc). Registration cost will be $30.00 and cover both days. Lunch will be provided.
