This is going out to any nerfers that may be in or around Augusta, GA and the CSRA.

There is a war being planned for sometime between May 25 and May 31. If anyone is interested, please say so by May 23 so that my people can decide on a suitable location for however many people are coming.

I am fairly sure there some nerfers here in GA and SC, including the dude that posted the hilarious Conyers,GA post (lets not go there), and I'm hoping that there will be other wars here in this area.

If you get a discussion going with possible logistics, than I will be able to see if such a war is worth attending. Planning a war through PM's is messy, and nobody else will know who the possible attendees may be.

to SirTofu: thanks for the advice, this the first actual large scale war I've ever planned, so I'm new to the whole "bunch of people thing" and having to deal with logistics

I'm going to check on the potential turnout from local nerfers first before my group decides on time, place, food, etc.

As far as I know, there are two possible places we might play:
Choice #1: Garrett Elementary School Playground/Campus
Has two levels, one on top of a hill and a lower level next to a fairly large flat field.
Campus consist of the main school building w/ courtyard, two portables, and a separate gym.

Choice #2: A smaller public park in the Montclair subdivision
Consists of a playground with cover and baseball field.

I'm going to scout out other potential places later this week.

I, and some members of my clan, might be interested. The more information you can get me the more likely it is that people will come.

I might try to show up to this. It depends if I can use my Titan (all I have)...
Also depends on whether I get the bolt action figured out by then.

Okay, from what my group has figured out, we probably have about 10-15 area nerfers attending (most of them newbies that they managed to convince to come...but everyone has a start)

We are currently shooting for the 26th of May, which happens to be Memorial Day, so that may be a problem. Let me know if this to too much trouble and my people would be happy to push it back a little.

My group has decided to play the elementary school campus (see first post).
As for the timetable (this is only an estimate):
11:00ish - Start time, Lunch, Chilling, Gearing up
12:00ish - Start matches
4-6:00 - End time, depending on what we want to do.

I'm working on getting pics for everyone, so they can get a sense of the playing field. I'll also get directions out to those of you who would like to show up, so let me know if you will show definitely by May 17ish (cuz I have exams to deal with after that date...)

Stay tuned for updates.

to Snazzy Q: you are talking bout a singled titan right? if so, I'm not sure if we can let you use that, but I will run it by my group and see what they think.

A singled Titan will punch a hole in an unopened soda can. I've seen it, it made a huge mess and was really cool. If there is a singled Titan on the field, I will not participate. I don't mind bringing loaners for people, but that's a dealbreaker for me. It's just not safe.

Also, Mondays are not great for people with jobs, any chance we could find a Saturday to do this?

i'm still a maybe, so don't let my opinion weigh too heavily on your decisions.

Yeah, I checked with my people and a singled Titan is definitely out of the question. We can't let anyone use one due to safety issues, but my group is willing to provide loaners and Cmdrmack has shown some interest.

As for the date, I completely forgot that the Augusta area schools get out a little earlier and some people work. My group is still leaning towards Memorial Monday (May 26) and I will not be able to hold one on May 24 or 31 (both Saturdays) because of prior engagements but any other days should be okay. Worst case scenario, we will push the war back a few weeks. Perhaps some of you could throw out some dates that are okay with you and my group will take a look at our schedules.

to Cmdrmack: My group would be honored if your clan came out and played with us, as we've never had another clan to play with.

How about June 7th? Most people would be out of school by then, and it's on a Saturday, so those who are in school could still come down. Also it would be easier for most folks to get off of work.

I can't promise that the whole clan (25 members) would show up, but I could probably get a few to come. Like I said, it all depends on getting the date set. Once we settle on a date I can get news out to my clan and we can get a representative group to join y'all.

Any Saturday and I am there if some other southerners show up. I might even be able to bring a few people. We'll see, post some more info.

Also, what kind of rules do you guys use? I am opposed to complex game modes and prefer the standard style , created by the east coast, 3hits/15second count (or any number of hits).

I'll see what weekend you guys pick and then announce if I can come. I'll probably be in Peru the weekend you hold it with my luck. Hopefully I'll get my new guns finished soon.

My group would like to do Wednesday May 28, but seeing that this date isn't going to float with many people, my group will probably play a small war with just Augusta players that date and hold the Regional War on June 14 (2nd Saturday). So everyone plan for June 14.

As to game rules, so far we've played only one-hit kill (as our group is small and we tend to play very small wars). If we get enough people, we will play standard east coast rules (3/15) and possible CTF.

Okay, the dates are now concrete. The regional war will be June 14 for sure. I will PM everyone who expressed interest as soon as I get the chance.

Pics and directions coming soon.

Okay guys, sorry about being so slow with the information. I'm out of town right now and I don't have the details on the location, but I will be back Sunday. I'll PM/post the information for everyone then, so just bear with me.

My group currently would like to play at T. Harry Garrett Elementary School. You can look that up on Google Maps or whatever. The logistics may be a problem however, as the school is closed for the summer and I'm not sure if we have access to restrooms, water fountains, etc. I'll check with the school.

The secondary location is a large public park called Warren Road Park. I will notify everyone if we have to change to this location.

Sorry but I can't make it to this one. I just realized that I get back on the 14th from a 50-mile hike in the AT so I won't be attending. Is there any chance of having one in late July?

Um, I can throw that idea out to my people and see if they are willing to host another one then. My own personal schedule will be shaky in July but perhaps another one of my clan members can plan one.

The war is to take place at the Garrett Elementary playground, a smaller location. Public facilities may or may not be available as the school buildings are closed. It will also be a little steamy, so bring water/edibles for yourself. The address is below for those of you who need maps, which you can get online.

1100 Eisenhower Dr, Augusta GA, 30904

The exact start time is TBA. We are trying to stay out of the afternoon heat wave, so anticipate a morning war or one in the early evening. Estimated playtime is 2-4 hours depending on how we feel after a couple of rounds. Details on the time frame will be posted later tonight or tomorrow morning. Estimated attendence is 10-15 people, more we're hoping. Hopefully we will see some of you out here in Augusta on Saturday.

Okay the times are out. We will play tomorrow, June 14, at Garrett Elementary from 2 pm to about 6 pm, depending on how we feel. PM me if you have any questions, otherwise we'll see you out here.

Make sure you bring water because it will be a little warm. Eye protection is mandatory and we will probably play Standard East Coast Rules (3/15 Rule).

The war was awesome. Thank you to those who participated in it. Perhaps we will host another war here in Augusta sometime in the future.

Special thank you to Zaxbys and his clan for coming out. Zaxbys lasted forever during the gunslinger round haha and his clan did very well against my own group. Kudos.
