Adirondack Rangers welcomes you to our home on the web.
Adirondack Rangers (ADK) is a competitive airsoft unit with players of various ages based in the Lake George region of historic Upstate NY. Adirondack Rangers derives its name from the famous colonial militia unit Rogers Rangers attached to the British Army in the United States during the French and Indian War. Trained by Major Robert Rogers, Rogers Rangers was deployed as a light infantry force specializing in reconnaissance and special operations against distant targets. Bold and effective, Rogers Rangers became a primary scouting unit for the British Army in the late 1750’s.
Loosely formed from a group of recreational players looking for outdoor fun and and the MILSIM experiance, an active group of enthusiasts formed into a functional airsoft unit and eventually became the Adirondack Rangers. With a small dedicated group of players Adirondack Rangers has become an airsoft unit with a cohesive identity based on the traditions of Rogers Rangers.
Adirondack Rangers -” Trained to Win” is an introduction video to the team and is a small sample of who the Adirondack Rangers are and represents how the team works on the field during events, the training we strive to complete as a group, and the bond we each share with one another.
New for the final months of 2014 and the beginning of 2015; ADK, is focusing on an adaptable and dependable radio net to be rolled out during the 2015 season. This refocus will provide the ability to be flexible on the field while maintaining internal control of core elements by enhancing the existing communication net with a more robust and capable platform.
As of the end of 2014 Adirondack Rangers Expeditionary Unit, or simply AREU, will no longer be part of the ADK structure. This segment of the team has now been blended back into ADK proper and is no longer separate from the core group. Seasoned players will travel and compete at larger regional and national events now under the ADK banner.
