Valhalla - Day 1
Where: Lazer Kraze
When: April 24th, 11pm- April 25th, 3am.

We have had dozens of requests from NIC members for permission to join us at a war in the laser tag arena.

http://nerfhaven.com...topic=15377&hl=
In case you missed it.

I am happy to announce that War 1 of Valhalla will be at our new home, and that we can extend the invitation to many members of the NIC. Sadly, I am forced to restrict attendance to 40 nerfers, as the arena becomes too crowded in excess of that. Tickets will go on sale the end of this week, they will be $4/nerfer. If a parent/older sibling is driving you to the war, they do not have to pay. PayPal will be accepted. upon receiving payment, your ticket will be mailed to you, along with the standard release form required by Lazer Kraze. you must bring both with you to the war. If a guardian is transporting you, please let me know, as I require a figure for total head-count in the facility, not just in the arena. Fountain drinks, nachos, and pretzels will be available. The arcade will most likely be available as well.



Special Rules for Day 1

The special rules for nerfing in the laser tag arena are as follows:

Stock darts only, no stefans. No putting glue in the dart heads, no putting bb's in the dart heads, no shoving fishing weights into the backs of dart. If the darts have been modified in any way, they, and their owner, will not be permitted within the arena.

Titans, blast bazookas, and their ilk are also banned, even stock. They are only permitted within the arena provided they fire from 4 or more barrels simultaneously, and cannot fire from less than 4. Home-made blasters are also banned at this time. No blasters firing ballistic balls, or ejecting shells (BuzzBee double shot, RFR, and Clip tek, for example) are permitted. (I don't want anyone tripping, falling down, and breaking something/getting injured.


We will meet at 11pm, go over rules, select teams, and introduce ourselves. The war will start at midnight, after they close for regular business and kick out all the regular customers. We will stop nerfing around 2:45, to clean-up. Capture the Flag is the most common format in this arena, as with respawning, and a simple yell of "Switch Sides!" the next round begins quite quickly. This format ensures that people will get to play pretty much constantly. We're paying to play here, and I seek to maximize the time spent actually playing.

Some nice pics, demonstrating the laser tag arena, and all it's awesome glory. The only source of illumination in the arena comes from black lights, and ambient glow from the many fluorescent obstacles in the arena. my camera fails to properly capture the lighting. Bpso86 will likely post some of his fantastic pictures to supplement my own, less-than-fantastic images.

The best blasters glow like magical weapons, and have the ability to detect enemies in close proximity. Bags, it is a shame that you live so far away.

Valhalla - Day 2


When: April 25th, 9am - 5pm.
Where: Boone Woods, Kentucky. (The Orange Hand extends farther than just Cincinnati. They will eventually envelope the continent. you'll see.) 5894 Veterans Way, Burlington, KY 41005

Days 2 and 3 will allow stefans, and will utilize the much more common nerfing rules, with regard to permitted ammunition, and blasters. No singled Titans, mandatory eye protection, etc. Attendance will not be restricted to these wars, the only cost to use the park is paying to rent the shelter, which I've already procured.

Valhalla - Day 3

When: April 26th, 9am - we get tired.
Where: Dunham Park. 4366 Dunham Way. Cincinnati, Ohio 45205
Once you’re on Dunham way, just keep going left until you reach the top of the hill. You will see the playground on you left. Continue until the next intersection, and make a left to enter the parking lot.

If the playground is overrun with short, annoying primates we can use the large valley/field on the other side of the parking lot. There are a handful of trails through the woods that link the far sides of the field. In the summer there should be enough foliage to make them useful.

Those are the arenas we’ll be using for Valhalla ’09. Post questions below and/or send me a PM if you have questions about the rules. (I expect more than a few of you will inquire about Lazer Kraze.)



Lastly, is The Feast. Outside the great hall, the worthy Nordic warriors would battle during the day, and in the evening all would gather and be revived is necessary for a great feast. I can’t gain access to a great hall, but I can try and arrange for many of us to get dinner Saturday night at the legendary Hofbräuhaus, in Newport, Ky. You don’t have to be 21 to eat there, just if you plan on enjoying a liter or three of some of the greatest bier in the world. If you would like to go to The ‘Haus for dinner, please indicate as such, and not if you are of legal drinking age. I have difficultly conjuring an idea as fantastic as an evening at Hofbräuhaus after a day of glorious battle. No matter what we can go there to feast and drink, but I require a head count to see if it’s worth reserving one of their separate rooms.


Hope to see you there.

I'm a highly probably maybe right now.

If anyone can give me a floor to sleep on in between event days, my likelihood of attendance shoots way up (I wouldn't have to sleep in my car).

If you guys hold one over the summer, I would try to convince the parental units (Ace only you will get this joke) to drive me there. Plus, I think they would like to visit Cincinnati. Maybe try to convince Ace to come with. Alas, I am busy during this time do not count me in. Fucking State National History Day.

Please specify which of the 4 events for which you are a "for sure" or a "maybe." There are 3 wars and The Feast scheduled. Longshot Wielder, do you plan on attending The Feast, and are you 21 or older? Foamfoot, I'm glad to you have so much enthusiasm for this, which events are you planning to attend?

You know that I will be attending each and every one of these events. You should also know that I am over 21 and would highly enjoy a german food/beer enfused meal after the events of Saturday.

Joe, I have some floor at my apartment that you could use, and perhaps a couch as well. Between myself and Twitch, I'm sure we could find ample lodging for you.

Twitch yes I will be attending the feast. Do I look 21 to you not trying to be smart to people older than me just seriously. Actually I've had beer I say it tasted worse than when PVC dust just on your tounge while dremeling. Well what type of food do they serve at the Hofbräuhaus? I mean if I've gone from louisville to lexington for pizza (my uncle's crew at his millworking shop did some work and he took my cousin and I to the place) which was an 1 hour 45min I can handle Newport. Sweet a west coaster we could all face him and see if he lives up to the west coast name (jkng).

Icespartan 1114 it is worth it all of us in the OH,IN, and KY area are very good nerfers, we have fun just watch out for Lynx and follow his every command even if you think it's stupid becuase chances are he knows what he's talking about.

I also volunteer my cleaning services and technical skill for cleanup and repairs, I accept Payments of Mt Dew and BBQ Potato ships.

There's just enough time to assemble a few homemades, I want a few people to try them out.


If anyone is interested I would like to ask for a custom game I would like to play where multiple small teams defend pop cans similar similar to capture flag only killing the pop can, 3/15rule for players and pop cans.
