Alright guys, this should be pretty easy. We need a place to Nerf, and several members have thrown in places they like. Date will be the same for everything but Lazer Kraze, since that will be more of a bi/weekly event if enough people agree to go to those.

For locations, we have:
Rapid Run Park
Boone Woods Park
Mt. Echo Park
Dunham Park
And then both Lazer Kraze locations.

For Lazer Kraze; prices will probably be $5ish like it used to be. It might be more than that, but it's going to be for three hours of nerfing in their arena. I'm waiting to hear from them to see if they'll allow us to use the arena again.


Date: April 15th (Unless you need a different day)/Any Friday or other day of the week for Lazer Kraze
Time: 10 til whenever we're pooped./ After closing.
Where: Whichever you guys choose; besides Lazer Kraze.

Rules:
-Eye protection is mandatory.
-No singled Titans/Cobras/etc.
-I would prefer if blasters that originally fire ammo larger than a mega have some sort of OPRV.
-Barrel taps are of course allowed.
-Gun hits count.
-Don't bring all Black or camo guns.
-No age limit, but if you're getting annoying we will tell you to leave.
-General douchebaggery will not be allowed, and we will tell you to GTFO.
-No shields except for Manta Rays.
-Melee weapons are only allowed for HvZ rounds.
-If we end up going to Lazer Kraze, try to keep cursing to a minimum. We want them to want us back. Also, stock darts will be the only thing allowed at Lazer Kraze. Don't want to break a light.
- Big Blasts will be inspected thoroughly Any modifications to the tank in order to expand it, or to the ORPV to reduce its effect on the air output will prevent the blaster from being used. Big Blasts already fire insanely hard guys; you dont need more power. Be prepared to open these blasters in front of the hosts for inspection (dont glue it shut it will be banned)
- Any other blasters that are voted too powerful will be banned for the day.
- Blasters will only be banned due to safety/power issues, not because it dominates.


Dart Regulations:
-Nothing bigger than a 1/4" slingshot weight.
-No tack darts AKA death darts. Because you'll be kicked out for using them.
-If we end up doing HvZ, only stock darts will be allowed.

Game Types:
-3:15
-Pistol Only rounds
-HvZ
-CTF
-Any further additions can be voted for.

What to bring:
-Two Primaries, in case your first one breaks.
-A secondary.
-LOTS of stock darts and stefans. Minimum 200 a person. If you do not have that many, loaners will be available.
-Good attitude!
-Bandanas/flagging tape, as many colors as you have. This helps with team matches.
-Trade stuff!
-Food or money for food, and plenty of water/liquids. This is a MUST HAVE.
-Money for loaners. Refundable if you don't break the blaster, and if you bring back all/90% of the darts borrowed.

What not to bring:
-Bad attitude.
-Banned blasters.
-Death darts.


Definites:

Maybes: Stop procrastinating and be a definite!


If there is anything else I need to add, please PM or post. I'll fix it asap.

Forsakenangel: Wow, 7 posts and only 2 of them have to do with the topic.
Go Nerfhaven!
Langley: I'm sorry we went off topic in your thread about exploding Easter bunnies. We'll try to do better next time.

Why do you want to play on a Sunday?

I'd be up for playing at Lazer Kraze assuming it's after they're closed. I don't know about driving down there early in the morning only for 3 hours of Nerf. But, I'd definitely be up for it at night.

Also, playing on the 1st or 8th will likely pull attendance from the Columbus war on the 31st, mind pushing it a week or two?

Can't attend, will be in West Virginia at that time.
There is no such thing as overkill. There is only cost efficiency.

I can definitely move it. And the reason it's on a Sunday is more for people who do things on Saturday's. I think Sunday's would be easier as less kids or families at a park, since church and all is around that time of day.

Edit: Changed the date to the 15th, since the week after is Easter.

Oh, I see. Well, Sundays aren't exactly good for me, so I can't mark attendance on the 15th quite yet. If the attendance is great, I can cancel my Sunday plans. Otherwise I'll have to stick to other days for Nerf games.

Okay. I can also try for the 14th, which I don't believe should be a problem for me. I'm trying to get a general consensus to see what days are good for everyone, but that is the day I think would be best. If you'd like to throw a date out there, I'm all ears.

Hello good sir, my name is CincyChop. I am one of the people who help plan/host most of the wars in the Cincinnati area. I'm trying to put a face to your name. I simply ask were you part of the UC nerf group and have I met you before at a Cincinnati war. The reason I ask is simply I wanna pool our resources and make this one of, if not the best places to nerf. I have been in contact numerous times with the owners of the Lazer Kraze establishments, and for the most part haven't held a war for lack of interest among nerfers and me not wanting to pick up the tab to keep the price reasonable.

Right now my personal vote is for Rapid Run Park, but another really good place to nerf at is right up the street at Dunham Park where they have a massive wooden playset.

Ah! For the life of me, I couldn't remember the name of the park. That's another place I wanted to throw on there. Thank you!

To your question, no you have not met me before. This will be my first big war unless I can find someone to pick me up for the Columbus war... But I would love to pool our resources and make this a huge event, and to make it a recurring one too! I can pm you my FB or phone number if you'd like a better and faster way to reach me.

I'll also cast a vote for Dunham if it's a smallish war, I don't think that playground can support much more than 20 or so nerfers. Last winter, there was a mini war with something like 8 people, we played with mini-mallows instead of stefans for ammo and it was hella fun.

Added Dunham Park on the list of areas to choose.

I may not be able to make it for the bigger wars, but if there are any skirmishes from March 17th from the 24th I will be able to make it.

Well, still no reply from Lazer Kraze so I'm guessing they're a no-go at this point. I'll leave them up there just in case, but it looks like parks are going to be the way to go right now.
