Location: Deal Park, Monmouth County New Jersey (directions below).

Date: Saturday, August 2, 2008.

Time: Arrive at 9:30 AM. War starts at 10:00 AM.

Hosts: Kuhlschrank & Shindig

---

PARTICIPANT RESPONSIBILITIES:
  • Arrive at 9:30 AM
  • Lunch - Pack Light, you will be eating on the field.
  • Liquids - At least one gallon of water or Gatorade. We're talking about New Jersey in August. The humidity will be so high, you'll feel like you're running through a swimming pool.
  • Hat - Keeps your head out of sun.
  • Sunscreen - Spray sunscreen is encouraged.
  • Nerf Blasters and Darts - A least one primary and one SPRING pistol, a sufficient amount of darts also.
  • Eye Protection (if under 18) - Eye protection is cheap and worth it, CVS and Home Depot offer glasses/goggles.
  • Extra T-Shirts - See Liquids.
  • Expect to carry all items - We will be utilizing all available fields. Last year we did hike everything over to a gathering area before the day began. It's about 1/4 - 1/2 mile walk from the parking lot.
  • Clean up ALL garbage and items you bring on the field - Flagging tape, lunch items, water bottles, etc., all of these must be thrown out properly. If you leave trash behind, do not expect to be invited next year.
  • Follow Instructions from the Field Supervisors - Select individuals will be Field Supervisors at Apoc 08. Each player is responsible for listening to and following the instructions of these advisors; we cannot gaurantee that the day will progress smoothly otherwise.
PARTICIPANTS UNDER 18 MUST WEAR EYE PROTECTION. THOSE OVER 18 MAY CHOOSE NOT TO.

BLASTER RESTRICTIONS:

All blasters are subject to range and power testing by the hosts. If any blaster is deemed unsafe to those on its receiving end, it will not be allowed. If you own/use an extremely powerful modded or homemade blaster, bring something else as a back up. We've had few problems with this in the past, so use your best judgment; chances are your brass barreled 5k, titan, or spud gun is going to get the boot.

11. 30 vs 30 (The Grove)

Great American Gore Fest: Spring Pistols, Every Man For Themself, Sudden Death

Gunslinger Heaven: Before this war each nerfer will choose a partner and we will most likely break into two even battles, each with 2 man teams. You may only use a single springer single-shot pistol in this war. Each player begins with 2 hit points. When a player is hit for the first time he will take a flag out of his pocket and wear it somewhere visible on his person. This nerfer is now in Purgatory, and another hit sends him to hell (ie game over). However, if a nerfer in purgatory succeeds in sending another player to hell that player may remove the flag from his person (leave purgatory) and regain one hitpoint. Game ends when one team is left.

Merge on to W. Park Ave heading East, continue for approximately 2 miles
At the 4th Traffic Light turn Right onto Whalepond Rd.
Take Whalepond Rd. for 1 mile and turn Right into the 3rd entrance for the park
There should be a parking lot immediately on your right.
If you come to a traffic light you've gone too far, turn around and then make a left into the first entrance you see.

GPS COORDINATES:

4015'21.85"N
74 1'25.08"W

GOOGLE MAPS INFO:

271 Whalepond Rd.
Oakhurst, NJ 07755
(if you don't specify the town it will take you to the wrong 271 Whalepond)

PARK MAP:

Here is also a link to a most excellently horrible MS-Paint image of the park.

The area designated "Trail Parking" is the preferred parking lot.
The area between "Leaf Compost Site" and "Bddy Soccer Field" offers additional parking along the fence.
The area designated "Overflow Parking" is probably a mile away from the actual Nerfing area. Arrive early.

OTHER NOTES: This will be used to answer other questions as needed.

The rounds will be varied. In order to give a large and small war appeal, we will be having multiple battles going on simultaneously during some points of the day.

This is going to be a huge war yet again. We're going to need your cooperation to make sure things run smoothly. Follow directions and we'll keep the day moving at a good pace. If you act like a moron, don't expect to have an open invite next year. If you piss us off, there are enough admins in attendance that one of us is bound to suspend you. You can find your responsibilities as an attendee in the first post. Don't act like a moron and this should be a really fun day.

The ms paint link does not work, for me at least. And more on topic, I really hope that I can make this, after reading so much about these big wars, and seeing so many movies on them.

Assuming my work schedule keeps me here (and I hope it does), then I should be in. I might need a ride though; I can take wherever the Chinatown bus will take me, but from there, I'm kind of stuck. Or if anyone passes by Baltimore on their way there, let me know.

As such, I suppose put me down as a maybe; I should have more details in a week or two.

Hot-damn I love staying on the East Coast over the summer; it greatly expands my ability to attend wars.

I fixed the link. It now points to the photo posted by Kuhlschrank. Most of the information I am using has been copied from last year's thread, since the war details are pretty much the same and there's no point in me rewriting all of it.

Just to clarify for those who are wondering: the first Saturday in August has been traditional for Apoc since the beginning. Even if I wanted to move the date, I wouldn't. Some people will be in Cali on July 12th, and I want to give them enough to time get their blasters mailed back from Cali in working order. Secondly, pushing the date forward will start to bump into college semesters and the end of summer. Summer wars always have higher attendance, and I'd like to keep it that way.

Ompa: I will be residing in the greater DC clusterfuck starting in June. I'll be looking to carpool up to Jersey that weekend myself.

I'm going to bring the beginnings of my "Clan" if I can get everyone organized by then.
At very least it will be me and 1 other.

Right now a "maybe" for me. I have to check available funds, traveling arrangements, and I'll need someone to pick me up from the appropriate airport. I'd like to make this war if possible.

I will update in a few weeks if I am going or not. We'll see how DCNO goes.

EDIT: Well if anyone is available to pick me up at Newark then I will go.

I've never actually been to a big war, so put me down as a maybe. I will edit this when I know. Hopefully I'm not going on vacation.

You can count me in.
I might be able to come with 3 others.
I know Cardiac-Kid and Blink182 wanted to go. I will contact them.


I think I would rather fly this time though.

I'll definitely be there if possible. I'm actually moving from NJ to western CT sometimes this Summer so not sure what the travel arrangements will be. If I can hitch a ride out of Ridgewood I'll make it for sure.

It'll be kool to go, but unless someone else from Woodbridge VA or someone south of me is going and is willing to take a stranger on a 4+ hour road trip, I don't think I can go.

..unless I could get up to Baltimore and hitch a ride with Ompa. :)

Let's just say that, hypothetically, some person (or possibly persons) were considering possibly, maybe coming to APOC from Pittsburgh.

What would someone suggest as far as getting there while not taking a car, and almost certainly not flying?

Thanks in advance.

I was hoping for something a little more specific than that; I already figured it would be a bus or train, but I'm not sure where I should go.

For instance, I was looking at a Greyhound bus to Newark airport. It's almost an hour from Deal Park, though, so I (and, again, possibly others) would either need a ride from there to the war, or someone to clue me in to the local public transportation system.

If anyone recommends a different bus station, or maybe even a different bus company, please let me know.

By Amtrak, you can ride from Pittsburgh to Metropark, NJ. That is right off the parkway and closer to the war than Newark Airport. My estimate shows that you'd pay about $200 round trip.

and the Metropark is on my way to the war, so I could pick you up on the way. It might be a better idea for me to look at the plans though. You might want to overnight the trip. If West Coasters are coming, I'll most likely be hosting them, so let me see what space I have available before I go and promise everyone a bed.

7 hours and 5 minutes to drive it....

Hmm, I'll check on my money and work status the week or so before Apoc, Is there anyone that wouldnt mind me crashing out in my car in their driveway? I could easily come down the day before, crash in my car, go to the war, and go home the day after

After DCNO, i'm fucking stoked for this
