The war may very well still be on, however, at this point I can no longer disclose any information about the location, date, etc. I acted to quickly before I had persmission to do so. A thread will be up again if the war will be back on, but for now, I ask that nobody comment or post in this thread and for an admin to please close it.

That gym looks AWESOME for nerf.
I want to kick myself because I will not be able to make the 5.5 hour drive unless we decide to make the family vacation to NYC this year.
But I REALLY want to go.

Well, try to make it here. Let's hope you go on vacation.

Stealthman, the school is in Montrose. This location is great, the picture donít quite do it justice. I ran in here for track and itís well over 100 meters in circumference. Diamondback and I are also thinking about making more cover.

No, it doesn't do it justice in any way, shape, or form. It is a really great location. Yep, more cover will be made: Tarps hanging from basketball hoops, foamboard barricades, and anything else we can get our hands on.

If nothing comes up, I'll be there.
Hope you can get this thing to work.

Skitzo-


I hope so too.
Hope to see you there. I've heard of your "active camoflauge"

Put me in as a maybe, also, which one of these is it?


You're down. Hopefully you figured it out by Alex's answer. I'll have a google maps link up when I add the detail to the thread. For another detail I'm adding, see below.

I might be able to come.


You're down as a maybe. Hope to see you there.



Now, the aditional detail. I know this may change some's opinions, but there is going to be an entry fee of $10. This is to cover any insurance we need, making barricades, and other various things that go into making this war a success. Then, the second option, for a small fee of an additional $5, Alex or myself will supply guns and/or darts. This may draw some more people, but could also turn some away because of admission. Obviously admission would not be payed now, but when I have the full thread up. If your mind has changed due to this, please let me know...although I really hope it hasn't. I'd like a good turn out for this.

Shoot me a PM and we'll discuss it; maybe a discount is in order for such a situation. The only hesitance I have here is that part of the blanket admission payment was for the insurance my mom is insisting that we get in order to host such an event.

And by the way, OMC, you're down as a maybe. I hope you're able to come up.

So the school isn't insisting on insurance and you don't have to pay for the venue? You don't need insurance then, because you're not charging admission.
If your parents are worried you could just have general liability waiver forms on hand instead of getting insurance.

Well, as I said, we have yet to ensure that this is a definite event, as those higher up in the board have yet to consent, although the principal already has. Just as this is variable, as is their want of insurance, or lack there of. No, we do not have to pay for use of the venue at this point (This may change, although I don't believe it will).

I will look into that, as it would drop the cost down to $5 for everyone else, and $0 for you if you were to bring a substantial amount of obsticals. Nothing too much, because as you see, we should have those mats, unless they are elsewhere in the school at the point of the war. How many do you think you could bring?

I am a maybe for this. though I don't see the point of forcing everyone to be covered by insurance. If I get injured in any way from a war, I always take sole liability for my own actions.

Yes, he does, as do I. But my parents are just acounting for that one idiot who shows up, hurts himself on purpose, and decides to get all pissy with us. I understand that 99.9% of the community wouldn't pull such a thing, and I want to even say 100%, but as this is my first war that I'm a part of hosting, they are a tad hesitant. As slug said though, if anything now, it will most likely be just some form of waver. And again, that's if there's anything of the sort to begin with.

By the way, I should've mentioned in my first post, when you post, tell me which option you want. 1 or 2 (Have your own guns or need guns), just so I have an idea. This isn't the final thread, which will have more detail. I just need an idea of what I'm going to need to prepare.

Make that 99.99999999999999999999%. It's never happened at a Nerf War. Ever.

As long as everyone is wearing eye protection, no injury anyone could sustain during a Nerf War would really warrant the expense of a civil suit anyways, so I'm afraid your parents are just being ridiculously paranoid. Any mild injuries tend to be of the self-inflicted variety.

Besides, you are an individual, not a business or an organization. The liability would really only be on the school itself.

This isn't paintball or airsoft and doesn't warrant such measures.

Which happens to be my school, so I don't want it to come down on me. My parents are only paranoid because it's my first time hosting. They'll get more comfortable with it as it gets closer. Admission will still be $5 regardless (Except for you slug, as you're bringing obsticals), because we plan on making a ton of obsticals to use. Not too many that it's impossible to move, but just enough.

The $5 entry is not for insurance purposes any longer. It is for the cost of creating obsticals and other preparations that must be made. I will be purchasing loads of water bottles incase anyone needs them, and gatorade as well, although I expect that people will at least bring some on their own. However, this price may vary based upon how many obsticals slug can bring.
