Kickass. I could definitely go for some grass to run on instead of ice or snow. Should've brought my track spikes back to school with me. Oh well.

I think I will be there, mabye just for 2-3 hours, but I think I will show up. I have a few rides lined up. And I won't be bringing anyone, Zudikas and Jaguar bailed. My sister and or her friend might try to play a little bit though, that is if they bring me.

Do you think that it would be all right to bring a smoke gernad?

Weather's still looking alright.

Dress in LAYERS.

Bring EXTRA CLOTHES because it will be wet.

Good news! The adapted floor hockey game got canceled so most of my clan will be coming for the whole war. And also, the ride coordinator said they'd be needing two cars... so that's at least 6 people. WoOt!

A good update. My dad says he will take me to the war, mabye not for that long, but for a while, if my sister can't. The minimum time I will there for me is probably 2 or 3 hours. Like I said both people who might come (to actually like play) bailed on me (dang boy scouts and jazz band).

Bad update: My buddy and I may not be able to make it now because of complications. We're working our hardest to alleviate these, but attendance isn't 100% quite yet. I'll keep a fairly consistent status posted here. Hoping for the best.

hokay, so; I am coming for damn sure, my friend is unreachable, but last time we spoke he said he was going to his dad's. i told him to go buy fbr and make darts for himself, but i doubt he's done it, so if he shows up, he'll prolly need a gun, cuz all his guns are stock (fuck.). not to mention he's getting his own ride, making him totally invulnerable to phone calls. (bollocks.)

but I'm ready. just finished tweaking PITA, so I'm al ready.

hilt, how many people are you picking up?

sorry for double posting, but this just occured to me.

do we have anyone with medical experience or training coming?

Why the hell would we need medical experience? Will people that have never been to a Nerf war please stop asking stupid questions.
Anyways, I got back home at 11 last night and the tuning starts right now! Prepare for pwnage!

hypothetical situations:

a player falls off of the playground or slips on ice(if its still there) and busts their shit.
a player runs into a tree and is rendered unconscious.
Rare: someone is shot in the eye.

I asked because as a soldier(and future combat medic), it is my duty to promote safety.
It's not stupidity, just concern, which seems to be a foreign concept to you, sam.

Messiah:

Just you and Kanashimi so far... still got room for two more though.

I think we all know enough medically to keep ourselves alive until an ambulance can show up. But honestly, nothing has ever happened before -- as long as we all use common sense, I'm sure it'll be fine.

Rings: Best of luck... that's all I can say I guess.

Less than 24 hours!

Dude, what kind of a question is that? Are you kidding me? Seriously, shut up.

#2 Messiah, watch your tongue. Sam has been at this a lot longer than you and deserves more respect than that. We've never had medical issues before and like Hilt said, we're big boys. Some of us are in our 20's and there won't be a problem. Most everyone will have a cell phone. The probability of a life threatening injury is slim and none anyway.

#3 It's wartime baby! This war should be just awesome. I hope to be there at 10 sharp. I don't have anything new really, so expect what I brought last time. I'm a little low on darts, around 100 total, so if I could borrow some, that'd be great. Also, does OMC's petg fit in 1/2" cpvc couplers? If it does, could I borrow a barrel or two possibly? Almost all of my guns have cpvc couplers, but my smaller sized darts are small in number. One of these days I really need to convert.

Anyways, it's gonna be good to see you guys again. I'm planning on staying all day and into the night. Hopefully some of us, the veterans, can hang out afterwards like Ryan was mentioning. Really sucks that Carbon can't make it this time. I'll see you guys tomorrow at 10,

I hope you guys don't mind me stopping in, but...

Also, does OMC's petg fit in 1/2" cpvc couplers?

In my experience, OMC's medium walled PETG (which should be same OD as thick walled, too) is loose in a CPVC coupler. Some electrical tape wrapped around the end of the PETG fixes that problem, though.

PS: Love your work, Carrtoon!

A lot of my guns have CPVC couplors too. I will have some 4" speedloader barrels for my NF and LNL if you want to borrow one of those. I will probably have some CPVC and pipe cutters in the car during the war if you want a barrel size of your choice.
So I think I will show up around lunch time or mabye a little later. I will eat lunch before I come. I will probably stay for 2 or 3 hours (my dad says I will get too tired, but if I don't I might stay later).

Well Fuckin A guys. Appendicitis doesn't heal the way I would have liked so I will be a no show as I can still not run properly.

Damn it all. First war I really get jazzed about I have to miss due to some crappy medical condition that is completely out of my control

Take pictures ok? I wanna know the fun I'm missing out on.

Carrtoon, I can hook you up with some sweet, sweet, PETG-y goodness that will work in a CPVC coupler and some darts.

WooT! Noobs, prepare to be pwned.

First one to post after the war. Man that was crazy, I had so much fun. Is somebody going to post a recap thread? I'm guessing that Hilt will, make sure you have those great pictures my sister took on the thread. Or are we going to use this thread for all the recap stuff?
