Hey Twitch this is Pat. I know myself and Ryan will for sure be coming to the 'Haus on Saturday evening after we go to the hockey game.

Do you know how long you will be there or will it be our usual just whenever?

Oh don't worry, I have plans to make it modular.

Actually, VACC, I expect the majority of the footage to be of the sky, as I continually leave the field to count. All the more reason to have it modular, as that permits me to pass it around to trusted nerfers, and get footage while I'm out.

With one day to go, this looks like it will be ricockulously awesome. I am very jealous. Hopefully your weather is as nice as it's gonna be around here this weekend.

Thanks for the words of encouragement. Perhaps next year, we could entice a contingent of those from the East coast to make it out here for a full weekend of foam.

As of now, the weather looks perfect for all three days (not that it matters for tomorrow). High of 80, partly cloudy, should be damn near perfect weather, and we are hoping for a turnout of 20-30 on average for each day.

I plan on acquiring a few flats of gatorade to bring with me in case anyone forgets drinks. We don't want anyone passing out on us. Other than that, make sure your blasters are in good working order and bring anything else you need. If you're arriving tomorrow afternoon, I get off work at 5pm and I believe Twitch is done around there as well, so we will be open to grab some dinner, socialize and the like before the foam flinging happens at 11. If anyone needs my number, send me a pm, otherwise you can contact Twitch.

Let's make this the best war to date!

Weather looks to be sunny and in the low 80's. I'm so fucking pumped.

Also, does anybody happen to have the materials to build a 17/32 brass breech? (something akin to this) I seemed to have lost mine and I don't have any brass here. PM me if you might be able to make one for me to buy.

The rules for shields vary a bit, as some of the rules were conjured before I joined the group, and before I sort of became the guy in charge.

To answer the question in short, BW, the disc you have mounted on the front would not be permitted as a shield. If you are using the disc instead as a support bracket, you'll need to demonstrate that without it, the barrels are excessively loose, flimsy, and would most certainly break off.For more detailed rules regarding shields, please read below.




In the Lazer Tag arena, the blaster/sword in your hand may be used to deflect attacks. Only the instrument your hand, (If they hit a pistol stowed away in a holster, your out.) and only portions of the blaster which either were intended/constructed by Hasbro to be part of (or potentially part of) the blaster, or are critical parts to the function of the blaster. This is to say that the LS frontgun, or the recon's various accessories, when attached (to either blaster, actually) are treated as part of the blaster for deflection purposes. A new barrel counts as well. Shoulder straps do not count, neither do cosmetic accessories not conjured by Hasbro. Paint serves as an extension of whatever it is on.



For example, a person holding a Longshot with the recon barrel, and the Mission Kit flashlight on the rail, and a shoulder strap. The wielder can deflect shots with the main blaster, the clips (as long as they are in the blaster), and the flashlight. If they are hit in the shoulder strap, they are out.


I have a pink Big Salvo (I know, you're surprised at this shocking news.) named peace Maker. Peace maker also has a pair of white/pink (fake) roses mounted on the side. If the main body of the blaster is struck, I'm fine. If the flowers are struck, I'm out.

The foam shields available at TrU and Walgreens are permitted, but they have a couple restrictions; they must be fluorescent, and when wielding a shield, you may only utilize melee weapons.





At outdoors wars, rules regarding shields and deflecting incoming projectiles are the same as at the majority of wars; Manta only, gun hits count, etc.





That said, I'm pumped, and can't wait. This weekend is gonna rock.




*edit*

There are 2 Lazer kraze facilities. We will be playing at the one next to King's Island, not the one in Erlanger, KY. (The Kentucky war is Saturday.)

Address:

3187 Western Row
Maineville, OH
45039

When you reach the exit, which is the same exit for King's Island, take a right at the first light (if you're taking 71-N). There will be a gas station (A Sunoco, I believe) and a strip mall behind it. Lazer Kraze resides in that strip mall, in the corner.

Sorry this was so delayed. I didn't receive any PMs so I assumed nobody needed a place to stay.
Anyway here is the address to the campground.

Camper Village
940 Curry Ln.
Dry ridge, KY, 41035

It's on average 45 minutes away from each event. Not the greatest place to stay but, we will be making the drive every day. See you all tonight!

Update from Twitch's living room floor on my iPod touch:

Laser Kraze was an incredibly unique indoor war experience. We have another war in five hours. Hope everyone is bringing their A-game!

hey guys, ol'tomator guy here, coming to you from camo-pat's laptop. The war at burlington today was Effeminate. I hope to see some pics soon, plus that video that twitch was shooting. did anyone get a pic of the firing squad? zombie games were fun. camo-pat and I might be at the war tomorrow, no guaranties.


P.S. if you are wondering who I am or who camo-pat is, I had the ol'tomator and pat... well he was the guy in camo... and a tac vest.

P.P.S. oops... I didn't realize he didn't wear camo today, only the tac vest.

Badwrench, the blooper reel is probably going to be a compilation of the like 3/4 of all my footage;which is basically me pointing the camera in the air, and flinching from getting shot in the shins by bpso86. As well as copious amounts of footage detailing the respawning areas utilized in Lazer Kraze. If anyone wants to know what the orange./blue spawn point look like, I think I've got like 90+ minutes of footage of said areas. At this pint I'm just transferring all the video and pictures oy my desktop, and clearing space on the SD cards so I can film tomorrow's wars. I expect the HvZ at Dunham to be just as incredible as last time. I'm going to need every empty byte of space I can find to capture all the Effeminate saves, et cetera.


I'll see you guys in like... 7 hours for the final events of Valhalla. Goddamn this has been a fucking Effeminate weekend thus far. I can only hope the weather tomorrow is as pristine as it was today, I;'m not sure a nerf war has been privy to such fantastic weather before this weekend.

The forecast is made of Win just like Purple Glitter darts.

Ok this was a truly Effeminate war I just now got home. (after eating and taking in the flea mall close to the war) By the way I really donít know why I had to leave so soon. Like I said all we did was eat and go to the flea mall. Also funny thing is Joe got those two sm3000s after day two. After I got to the flea mall I found a hornet at the first booth.

Now pluses of the war
+ Finding out that my pas worked great.
+ meeting new people and people I already met again.
+playing at some great places.
+ seeing many of bad wrenches contraptions. I mean really every war I have seen him at he keeps his car full of his many creations. I still like that at2k and over under.

Some negative things about the war
-I made 60 feet worth of foam in to darts and only 20 feet of them actually worked in my barrel. Now I am going to buy a spool of foam from log homes. For some reason I found one in my dart box and it fits my barrel perfectly by the way who was shooting the white darts?
-Because of above I couldnít tryout my new mod witch the Wright up will be up shortly I hope.
-That dude running face first in to that tree. And anyone who hit there head on those boards in the fort for that matter.

All in all a truly Effeminate war and I am glad to have been a part of it.
