Highest:

-The Lancer
-The great noob influx II: Return of the Noobs
-Some great new members
-Strengthening my friendships with other Nerfers.
-Making my first transctions through NH.
-Some great new members(rork, jsb, Aside, Foamfoot, Radio, Splitlip,etc)
-The growth of FoamUniverse.


Lowlights:

-The great noob influx.
-Silentsnipe

damnit, I was gonna put Silentsnipe on my list. Just kidding. And sorry, anyone who was on their computer and not getting their New Years kisses is lame.

Highlights

-CrossSNAP. I actually got it almost done, paint and all
-Great wars
-Meeting tons of awesome MidWest guys. Hilt, Carbon, Carrtoon, Ryan, and all the others, Keep up the Nerf
-Actually gaining some more recognition with my homemades
-Actually building my SNAP. Took me two years to finally get around to it.
-The great younger Nerfers I have met.
-"Man, this reminds me of highschool" -Goose Island. "Dude, you aren't even a Freshman" -NerfCrazy
-Messiah, or themessiahpsg1. He made the one war I was at with him fun.
-Switching from micro stefans to megas, back to micros. What? They are more accurate.
-Zombie VIP. Thanks Zach
-Keeping some friends, making new ones, and meeting some pretty cool younger people
-More people to make fun of, and as such, grow closer

Lowlights
-Having said friend lay on my leg and bump into it during said mack session

-Screwed up two guns

All in all, a very promising first year of Nerfing.

2008 proved to be great for those of us down in the Southeast region. Heres to another great year of nerf!

Highlights:
- successful Summer and Fall SENOs and those little wars in-between
- gaining some modding experience from friends and fellow nerfers
- SNAPbow (thanks rork!)
- watching the influx of new members
- watching the development of several excellent homemades
- following the admins' tough-love (and Groove's lolcats spree)

Lowlights:
- having to suffer the dreaded SE heat at Summer SENO which was followed by the chillies at Fall SENO
- watching the influx of noobs
- having to downsize my arsenal
- not finishing my SENO vid (sorry guys, it should be up today haha)

Nerf on! VIVA LA SENO!!!
