Anyone who is taking the metro, the war is near the Rockville Metro Station on the red line, I would be happy to pick people up from the metro before the war starts.




I'm not sure how many people would be interested in the idea, but here it goes.

I was thinking that if enough people in the Washington DC area would be up for a few wars prior to SuperNoVA and DCNO to make sure guns are working, test out sites, have a good time, etc, we could get some going.

These would obviously be small scale wars with much shorter planning time, but I'm all for the idea.

I don't recall exactly who is living in the DC metropolitan area at the time, but know there are at least enough people to get a small war going who live in an ~30 or 45 minutes radius.

I'd be interested in some smaller-scale wars prior to the big Spring/Summer ones.

Depending on the date/time I'll try to make it. I'm usually only 45-55 minutes away from DCNO fields. I would LOVE to war test a few of my new creations.

I was going to host a war, but life caught up with me. I had some things I need to do around the time I was going to host my war. I'd be interested. I live in Leesburg Virginia, so I'm pretty close to DC.

You guys really are trying to cut down my excuses, aren't you?

Work and the rest of life permitting, I'd be interested.

I'm interested, but I might need transportation. Specific dates and times would be helpful too.

Count me in. I'm at school in northwest PA through the first week of May, but I'd be willing to hoof it down to MD for a weekend.

Below is a list of potential dates. Saturdays or Sundays?

4/18/09 4/19/09
4/25/09 4/26/09
5/2/09 5/3/09


From what I know of my school schedule, the weekends of the 18th or 2nd work best for me, but the 25th would be perfectly doable.

I've left out easter weekend for obvious reasons, and 4/2/09 and 4/3/09 because they are in a week and a half. However, that date might work best for some people.

Anyone seen any good sites to test? There is one school I remember from a while back that we haven't played at, I'll try and get pictures of it up this weekend.

4/18 and 4/19 work best for me, as the 19th is my birthday, and I'll be home anyway. 5/2 and 5/3 are almost certainly out, as that's the weekend before finals.

All of the mentioned dates could work for me. Some work better than others, but there aren't any major problems. I'll set up my schedule for whatever dates are chosen.

The little critters of nature, they don't know that they're ugly. That's very funny, a fly marrying a bumble bee. I told you I'd shoot, but you didn't believe me. Why didn't you believe me?

The DC Tune-up will be on May 2nd, 2009.
Does anyone have any parks to test? Or should we stick to the Labyrinth?

The Labyrinth would be good for me because it's near a Metro station.

Labyrinth works for me. Think it's a solid choice for everyone too because it's familiar terrain, is close to the Metro, and will serve as an ample "tune-up" for the Spring DCNO later that month.

War in a few weeks, if we could get confirmation on who will be coming. What number should we consider the needed "critical mass"

Also, if we move the date forward or back a week, would that effect anyone's participation? I.e. Make them come.

I'll be there Monday the 20 through Thursday the 23rd (April). Any possibilities, or should I just visit the Museums and leave?
