Yikes, this war is really ballooning in size from my original expectations. We're almost at the point of just being too ridiculously large for this venue.

Put me down as a maybe. I can take the Metro most of the way there and can ride my bike to the park, but I don't know what else might come up in the near future.

Forgot to reply to this sooner, but all of the buses in Fairfax county have bike racks on the front. If you're early enough at the stop for the driver to accommodate you, you can take the 950 bus from West Falls Church Metro Station to the Herndon-Monroe Park & Ride (12530 Sunrise Valley Dr Herndon, VA 20191). It's only a 3 mile trip from there to the park, and for the last mile you'll be on the W&OD bike trail.

Thanks. Earlier I had planned to live in College Park over the summer, but I now have a job near where my parents live for this summer so I can drive their car now (assuming it'll work with my schedule, but I don't doubt that it will). That's good to know for the future though because I'll never be living there again.

3/15 Deathmatch
Gunslinger Heaven
And that's about it since the venue makes Assault and CTF rounds impossible or boring.

Singled Titan and SM5ks are disallowed. Everything else is fine as long as you're not an asshole with it.

Any chance one of you guys from NJ could pick me up along the way? I'll be at the University of Delaware in Newark DE and don't have a car with me. I'll help pay for gas etc. of course.

Attendance looks to be anywhere from 10 to 26. Which is a tiny worrisome because any more than 30 attendees and the park might be too small to hold everyone.
SO IF YOU COULD PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOUR ATTENDANCE STATUS HAS CHANGED FROM A "MAYBE" TO A "DEFINITE" I would very much appreciate it.

If the park is too occupied or too many people show up we may have to relocate to Bruin Park (412 Van Buren St, Herndon, VA).

I can't guarantee my being there right now, but I will make every attempt to do so. If you can put me in as a "maybe," I'll verify ASAP. I wanna try my new 2k out.

I'm unfortunately now a maybe for this war. If I get a job, or win the lottery, I'll be able to make it; otherwise it's highly unlikely.
Last I heard from Talio and Jlego (yesterday), they didn't want to drive down that far twice in two months. I would list them as "maybes" at best.

I'm going to have to change the war location to Bruin Park. Trailside has become more active recently and it's just going to be too small for the number of people that are potentially attending.

Bruin Park
412 Van Buren St, Herndon, VA

I'll take some pictures later today.

Work on improving your post quality please.

Ok, two things.

One, Although my ride says I'm a "maybe" until we pull into the parking lot of the park, short of retroactive commitments or emergencies, I'm there.

Two, Normally I wouldn't post this here, but it's sort of relevant: If anyone who's going to be there has a NF plunger assembly that they are willing to sell, I'm willing to buy. I'm thinking of doing a Nite-Mav, and would rather avoid buying an entire NF just for that set of parts. If not, I'll figure it out.

So far the chances of me coming are getting better and better. I am also trying to bring people with me so we can have more of a turnout. I have a few questions though....

1. Is there going to be a limit as to how are of a area we will have to use?

and

2. Is the playground equipment off limits? (a in using it for cover or loser posts)

No, the park boundaries are fenced. So no going over fences.
and
Only if there are kids on them

I'm almost a definite for this, and am looking forward to it quite a bit. Jlego is in CT now, so I don't think he will be joining me. Muttonchops (aka Deamonn) is a maybe, he still has to get back to me.
Koree, incoming PM.

Do you need the spring also? I think I have what you need, I'll send you a PM once I look.

Put THIRST as a maybe.
