Alright, now that the details are out of the way. It is time for Fall SENO! WOOT! I'm glad to see some new faces this time around. I'm afraid Groove will not attend this time and he will be missed ;) . Other than that, I will see you Saturday morning in Augusta! Nerf on.

Notes
- Eye protection is mandatory for everyone under 18. We are not accountable if you sustain injury due to not wearing eye protection. There were some hi-power guns in play for summer SENO, and this time around, a good majority of the Augusta nerfers will be fielding BBBBs.
- Singled titans are banned. Period. Other than that, guns will be judged on a case-by-case basis, so bring a backup weapon just in case. Airguns will be heavily regulated.
- Dangerous guns will be banned on the spot. So put that howitzer away...
- Homemades will be allowed (SNAPbows, +bows, etc.), unless they violate the rule above.
- Loaner guns will be available for guests.
- We will probably chip in to buy pizza if some of us want to, so bring some money.
- Public facilities (water fountains, restrooms, etc.) may or may not be available, depending on if the Garrett Gym is open on that day, which I doubt. So make sure you're okay with that.
- Park in the parking lot right next to the playground, that is where our staging area is.
- The fields in the pics will have a little more cover. There will be cardboard emplacements to add more cover.
- NERF AND HAVE FUN!!!

This is the overview picture of the playground. You can see the gym in the background to the top left. The gym marks the north boundary. We'll use that area if we need to.

Posted Image
Sorry for the blurry pic. You can see the "trench" dividing the playground in the middle. The other trench is in the treeline in the top right of the picture. This trench marks the east boundary of the playing field.

Posted Image
This is the courtyard between the two wings. It's perfect for small, close-range battles.

Posted Image
Here is the front of the school. The left edge of this yard is the west boundary of the field. Besides the few large trees to the right, there is very little cover.

You can get directions from GoogleMaps, MapQuest, etc. They also have an overhead view of the playing field. If you have any problems getting directions or any other concerns, feel free to PM me.

*NOTE* SENO has been granted safe zone status for the Greenbriar war. We will play as planned.

I'll be there, with one definite guest. There's an outside chance of my bringing another, but at this point, it's me +1.

Hehe... this is going to be good. This is going to be amazing.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to seeing everybody that came out last time (besides groove :( ) and all the people that didn't come to SENO.

Okay, it turns out that I will be in Penn state to visit the grandparents for Thanksgiving. This doesn't mean a no; actually, I have an greater chance of attending than before. The same thing goes: family has fun in Atlanta while we nerf it up. I'm in 8th grade and I get three days off for Thanskgiving (Wed., Thur., and Fri.) , so if we 1) leave on Friday and stay in a hotel, or 2) leave early on Saturday (like normal) and get there a little late, I should be fine. They hopefully won't mind.

A couple questions: how many darts should I bring, is a modded BBB able to compete with BBBBs or should I invest in something a bit more powerful, and do I need to cool the darts so they won't swell up. Thanks for the support, and I hope I can make it!

The name "Konoha" is Japanese for "leaf". It has nothing to do with "Naruto". So shut up.

Updated the attendance list.

@konoha: bring as many as you think you need bring MORE than you think you need haha. I'd say a good 100-150 should cover you for the entire day. I usually never fire more then 10-15 a round (aim, don't spray and pray) but we'll do dart sweeps between rounds. As to weaponary, a BBB is a very good general purpose gun. I'd say bring it, you'll be okay against the BBBBs, depending on your style of play. We'll have some decent loaners just in case you don't want to use that. Make sure you have a reliable sidearm, I can't stress how many times my NF saved me during summer SENO. Oh, and you probably won't need to cool the darts, it'll be pretty cool around Thanksgiving anyways. Hope to see you at SENO!

@SirTofu: holy cow I forgot you were a GA person, I added you to the maybe list, hope you can make it.

For any of you trying to get a good idea of the cover. Those black tubes forming the trench are big enough to lie down behind.

do I need to cool the darts so they won't swell up.

The night before, I put my darts in the fridge of the hotel room I was in, however that was in the middle of summer. There was one dart that was in the sun all day that swelled to the diameter of my thumb. (Anyone else remember that?)

I remember that, that was hilarious. GA heat is a beast haha. November should prove to be a bit friendlier towards us nerfers.

Yeah, I modded a NF for my first gun. And I totally fucking forgot about it being cold. Sorry about that. But with the heat these days, you never really know....
Oh, and I'll have enough darts. I made like 90 when I was first getting into it, and I haven't lost very many.

Hello Nerf Haven!
I am 90% I will be at SENO.
Because it is so far away, the number of friends I will bring is not able to be predicted yet.
Thanks for you help with the registration stuff Shadowblade.

If anyone has any questions about Garrett, I went there all through elementary school, my mom works there, and I live about a mile away.

I'm doing the same thing, but seeing as we're in (relatively) close proximity you don't suppose some kind of carpool could be arranged? I'd love to attend but transportation would be an issue otherwise.

I would just like to remind everyone that a few of the nerf guns feel like paintball guns. #1 reason that eye protection is maditory. If you don't like welts at all, tell your team and stay the heck away from anything with a pvc/cpvc barrel longer than 8 inches. :lol:

We are leaving Monroeville, PA on Saturday, so it just depends on what happens. I might not be able to attend. I went to Google Maps for some research, and I found out that it takes about 10 hours and 6 minutes to get from A to B. So, if we leave early in the morning like normal, at like 4:00, I will be able to get there at about 2:00 and Nerf while my parents sleep or do something else. I might be able to leave even earlier than 4:00; I'll just have to see. It's on the way home, and it would take about 2 more hours to get home, so we would get home about 8:00. I still haven't cleared this with my parents yet, but it's not too far off the normal plan. They will enjoy the rest. I will probably remain on the "maybe" list until late October, as I just do not know what will happen.

[LoS] is our clan tag if you want to add it to your sigs. This is all technical stuff though, not important.

ANT for Augusta Nerf Team was the best acronym I could come up with. League of Shadows is reserved for, I think, founders of our team. Shadowblade, we need to discuss who fits in this catagory.

For those participating in other school wide nerf wars, the area of SENO is a safe zone on Nov. 29th.
