Last DCNO was by far the most fun and successful one to date, with attendees ranging from Illinois to New Jersey (just to name a few). I'm looking to do the same if not better this time around, so let's start talking dates. I have listed on the 2008 Nerf War Schedule for Sept. 13th, but that date is tentative. We're doing Saturdays, just like we've always done in the past. I want to garner a large attendance, we had 20+ last time and it was awesome. So, without any further ado, here are the dates I'm considering. Say what dates would work best for you and we'll go from there.

+Sept. 13th
+Sept. 20th
+Sept. 27th


-----------------


Rules:
+Eye protection is MANDATORY. No eye protection = no play. I really can't stress this enough.
+Dress appropriately for the weather. No trench coats or camouflage. Be smart about this.
+Bring enough darts to last you the whole day. We will be making dart sweeps between rounds.
+If you're opposed to a bag lunch and have a car, feel free to drive and get lunch elsewhere.
+Bring PLENTY of drinks and sunscreen, as the heat can (and probably will be) brutal at times.
+Homemades will be permitted on a case-by-case basis. Leave your PVC Howitzer at home, please.
+Banned blasters: Brassed SM5K's, singled Titans. I reserve the right to ban things I feel are too powerful.


-----------------


Let's get this ball ROLLING, gentlemen.

I'll be coming, with possibly one other. Any of those dates would work for me right now.

*Edit* Here's a over head view of the area.

The 27th looks like it would be best for me, but that's only depending on my school schedule. I could probably make any of them, but I have an exam on the 15th that I'll fail if I'm coming back from DCNO the weekend before. I'd have to figure out new travel arrangements too this time, so I'll work it out whatever weekend it ends up being.

I am definitely considering the trip again, as I love this field and you guys are a great group of nerfers to play with.

The 20th is definitely out for me. I would vote for the 27th, as it is later and will give me more time to prepare, and plus my classes start the middle of that week so it won't be busy. The first weekend posted I will most likely be doing moving stuff to get ready for classes.

I'm only going to be able to make the 20th, but I won't be sure I can go until the Friday of(yay, college).
I hope it works out, as I haven't been to a DCNO at this new field.

So don't use me to choose unless it's deadlocked.

13th is most likely not going to be possible for me.
20th is good.
27th is fine too.

I'm willing to provide crash space for the people I like.
And like last time I will be bringing a cooler full of Gatorade and some cups.

Probably a no-go for me. I'm already attending a star party (a different type of congregation of nerds, but with telescopes instead of Nerf guns) on the 6th and have football games to march in every Friday. There's a small chance I can make it but it's very doubtful.

Have fun.

I can do the 13th and the 27th. The 20th is the only date that I can't make under any circumstances.

I am about 80% sure I can go. I just need to check available funds and make sure I have enough for the plane ticket. I can make any date that Slug can, since I will most likely be staying at his place.

If that's cool with you Slug? You mentioned the offer at the end of the last DCNO. And now I'm going to take you up on it. Only if it's cool with you. Let me know.

You guys rock on the east coast so I'd figure I'd come to one more before the season is over.

EDIT: Groove, you failed to mention someone from Illinois came to Summer DCNO.

I am a maybe as of Now. If I go which is about a 35% chance I will fly to Rockville MD with my dad on a business trip on FRI
then go to the war on Sat. Then fly back with my dad on Sun. Its pretty cheap to fly from Maine to MD. Only 175 bucks round trip. As of now all of the dates look good, but I am going to need a definite date before I book my flight. Sounds fun.

Gimme A Date!
Grr.

This isn't that place we played with the trailers on the hill is it? I can't really remember much about it because it was a long time ago, but I remember we ended up going to another school cause we didn't like it.

I'd prefer the 20th, but any of those dates work for me. I'd love a good war right before school gets up and going.

Yeah that's fine.
And NerfMonkey came from Ohio to attend DCNO many times in the past 2 years.

I might come, but I'll be in southern Virginia in September, so driving up would be a little expensive for me. However, if I am in town during the day you all decide upon, I'll try to show up.

If your vehicle gets crappy gas mileage you can drive to Richmond and catch a Bus to DC.

Or beg Groove to give you a ride the rest of the way.

Yeah, I drive an old suburban. Getting up to MD would cost quite a bit.
I might be in town anyway, visiting people. We'll see how that goes.

The 27th seems it would garner a higher attendance, so we'll set that as the date. Edited the first post.
