Updated DA RULZ. What game types would you like to plaY? HvZ? Capture the flag? Tell me.
As for games, I know of none. Once I get to this thing, someone will have to explain how to play.

Ok sounds good, Kdizzle will you be meeting us at wendy's? Sounds like this might be a promising war. We'll probably have one in december (before christmas) during the second week, so Falcon can come. Any questions about anything? Well, I've got to go to oakland tommarow, and I am sleeping over at a friends house so he can take me there, so I better get ready.
We'll be coming from hayward (because we're going to see Saw 5 on the 24th and then my friends are going to spend the night at my dorm so we can leave from here the next morning). Unless we hit some unexpected traffic that sets us back, yes we are planning on meeting at Wendy's. I just ordered a NerfSTRONG band so I'll have that on. Oh and for those of you who don't know, I'm a chick. There is also another girl on my team and a dude. See you guys!

I will be meeting up w/ JSB at Bart. Then we will ride on to Wendy's. I too will be wearing my NerfSTRONG band.

Let's see if I can shed some light for you guys to help this go smoothly. When things go smoothly, people come back. Case in point, the recent explosion in So Cal attendance.
Question - among attendees, who has previous experience at organizing a Nerf War?
I certainly don't. Not even at attending one.
I'm just wondering how much organization to expect.
For an "inaugural" event, learning our way through is okay, but experienced leadership could be a plus, too. If no one like that is attending, perhaps we should seek more advice online while we have a few weeks to absorb it.
Keep game types simple, for starters. Don't try anything more extravagant than deathmatch with either 3/15 or 5/20 rules (hits/respawn time), and capture the flag.
Whoever runs the war (I imagine that'll be nerfer9...it's typically the job of the host) needs to decide ahead of time that he/she is over feeling awkward during get-acquainted time, and will walk straight up to people, and start learning names. When it appears that the majority of attendees are there, said person needs to feel confident enough to put and end to social time and get the ball rolling.
Don't get all power-trippy or anything; just talk with some confidence. The more awkward you sound and look, the longer things'll take. Just be calm, and run the show.
I'm going to contact Anyaseijin, a once prominent socal nerfer who moved up north two years back. He may be able to come, and that--in addition to boosting your attendance list--would help move things along and get you all used to how a typical major war functions. He'll be more than willing to play by your rules, but if he comes, he'll be just as willing to help you get to know how to run things effectively.
That being said, I may be there too. Would the Davis, Sacramento, or Stockton Amtrak stations be on the way to the location for anyone?

Hold another one in early '09, and I'll be there. If not, we may see you on the SOF trip.
In the meantime, Anyaseijin may still be coming; he'll post in the next few days.
