Alright people, by now you should know that the SOF Team is a no-go for this summer. Despite the bad news, we will play on, rain or shine. I expect this to be one of the largest regional wars down here in the southeast yet. Don't disappoint me.

The date and time stands as is and the location has been set.

What: Season of Foam Nerf Out - Augusta (SOFA)


When: August 3rd, 2009 from 10AM til the heat kills us (6:30ish)


Where:
Langford Middle School
3019 Walton Way
Augusta, GA 30909-3470


PICTURES

If anyone needs help getting directions, feel free to drop me a PM!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

I will update this info as it gets nearer to the war date.

*Banned Weapons:
-Singled Titans (plugged or unplugged, it doesn't matter)
-Converted Air Rifles
-Plugged Singled BBBBs/LBBs
-Any other gun deemed too dangerous for play

*Down here in the SouthEast, we tend to be VERY lenient on guns. We usually allow pretty potent weapons on the field, but if you decide to bring a nerf howitzer, we'll have to ask you to put it away. If you aren't sure, bring a backup weapon.


What to bring:
-First and foremost: A good attitude. No douchebaggery allowed.
-At least one primary and one sidearm.
-A spring-powered pistol.
-A ballgun if you have one.
-Ammo. You will probably need 150+ darts. We will be dart sweeps throughout the day but you should still have enough ammo to last.
-WATER. LOTS AND LOTS OF WATER. I cannot stress this enough. Augusta in August is like being in humid Hell.
-A packed lunch. Chances are we won't have time to order food, so please bring something to eat on the field. The hosts will probably have snacks (granola bars, chips, etc.).
-Friends! The more the merrier! Just let us know how many you're bringing.


Other Notes:
-Park in the parking lot directly adjacent to the playground. Our staging area is nearby under the covered walkway.
-Please dress accordingly for this war. The temperature can reach upwards of over 100+ degrees F due to the extreme humidity. We will try our best to keep the staging area shaded.
-Public facilities may or may not be available because the school is closed during the summer. Be prepared to use some bushes.
-It is okay if you are forced to chamber someone else's darts during a round, but please do not steal the darts at the end of the war. We will do dart sweeps and throw everything into a communal pile. Each nerfer is expected to get his or her darts ONLY. Thanks much.
-BRING WATER. WATER. WATER. You should try to avoid caffeinated drinks as they are diuretics and actually make you lose more water.
- Have fun. This is the ultimate rule in Nerf.

I have a friend who is a maybe currently.

SOFA is such an awesome name. Hopefully, the war will live up to it.

This is definitly a once-in-a-lifetime experience, just as you said, so don't miss it!

Well put my spud gun down for a maybe. Its a matter of transportation and an air source. Do you have a compressor? Why not bring yours?

No need for spud guns... its a NERF war... we shall not have time for it and I will personally make it a point to have as little dead space between rounds as possible.

By the way I am there +1

You should be okay. Are you coming to? Or is it just your friend?

@veginator: I'm going to have to second Zax on the spud gun.

Indeed. So be in shape and ready to run... because this is going to be a hot, steamy blood-bath for many solid hours...

SOFA= Not for the weak at heart.

Already planned on it despite the fact it isn't a close proximity as in Savannah.

Nothing is conflicting yet and I plan to attend.

I have a seemingly small potato cannon that shoots 5/8" nerf darts. No it is not nerf leagal. It will lodge hot glue, bb's, and foam in you. :lol:

close proximity can be acheived by using the courtyard only.

We can set up some small emplacements in the courtyard and/or on the soccer field if necessary. Small enough for temporary but easily flanked cover. This can be achieved by cardboard panels or pvc/tarp.

The field is a little barren for my taste.

@ump: I'll go ahead and add you to the maybes. I'll change it when you're sure.

Tuba>bass clarinet. It will be... fun?

Hopefully fullmetalgir will show up too, but he will have to drive MUCH farther, but he said he would try. If you can convince him, assassinNF may show up. He comes to our wars, which will be much more public soon, but here have been the past 2

http://www.xtremejum...The_Videos.html

Yes, thats my, much better made than most, nerf site.

The second video I forgot to include a pic of myself. Dang.

You guys message me if you want to show up for the next one.
