Battle of the Bulge - Camp Clark

Nevada, Mo. 17-19 Jan 2020

G Co, 137th Infantry Regiment, 35th Infantry Division, along with the 29th Panzergrenadier Regiment, units of the WW II HRS, will host a Battle of the Bulge tactical battle at the Missouri National Guard training site, Camp Clark, in Nevada, MO from

17-19 January 2020. This event is open to all ETO reenactors.

 

Camp Clark is located on the southeast side of Nevada, MO. Nevada is 75 miles south of Kansas City, MO and 61 miles north of Joplin, MO. Take the Camp Clark exit off of I-49/US 71 Highway in Nevada and follow the signs to Camp Clark. The training area is one square mile of rolling hills, woods, creeks, and trails. This year we will allow wheeled vehicles only.  Vehicle owners must provide an additional $10 damage deposit at the time of registration. Deposits will be returned at the end of the event, after Camp Clark Range Control clears the unit of the training areas.

 

Event Fee:  $25

 

Heated barracks with showers and latrines will be provided on Friday and Saturday night. The barracks rooms have bunk beds with mattresses and pillows. You need to bring your own sheets, blankets, or sleeping bags. A continental breakfast will be served Saturday morning and a hot meal will be served on Saturday evening after the battle. The barracks and meals are included in the registration fee.

 

USO Club/Café: There will be a club/café open both Friday and Saturday nights offering snacks and non-alcoholic beverages. The Missouri National Guard prohibits the consumption of alcoholic beverages on post, including the barracks and the club. The club will have 40’s music, tables for card games, and an assortment of snack food items. Your registration fee gets you $5 worth of “script” to spend at the club. There are also several bars and restaurants located in the town of Nevada for those so inclined.
