I'm hosting a war up here to help you all get into the swing of things, and further promote the nerf scene you've got going on.
We're going to some new locations you haven't played at before. It's going to be different from what you're used to, but I promise, you're all going to have a fantastic time.
I'm putting down four locations. I've never played at any of these places, so I don't know if those present will be okay with us or not. If we have any problems with any of the locations, we will pack up and move on to another one. It's simple, and no one will get in trouble. If for any reason, the authorities (cops, etc.) are called, you are agreeing by coming to this event that you will leave talking to them to me. I've been doing this for a long time; the last thing any of you need is the added stress of talking to police to complete your day.
Our war locations are as follows, and in order of appearance:
Willis Jepsen Middle School
580 Elder St, Vacaville, CA
Will C. Wood High School
998 Marshall Rd.
Fairmont Elementary Scool
1355 Marshall Rd.
Cooper Elementary School
750 Christine Dr, Vacaville, CA
We will be meeting in the main parking lot of Willis Jepsen Middle School at 10:00 am. Please be as prompt as possible, for the sake of getting in as much play time as we can, and allowing for lunch breaks and potential location moves. Again, don't worry about having to shift locations if necessary; it's not a big deal, and playing at multiple locations is commonplace down in So Cal to help keep the day fresh and fun.
Next on the agenda is our need for an event date. Typically, down in So Cal, I just snag a date and everyone has enough advance notice to get themselves there. However with this event, I want as many of you that want to make it to be able to so we can have the best Northern California event possible. So I'm laying out two options at the bottom of this post, all Saturdays. Please let me know in this planning thread which of the two (or both if you can) that you would be available for, and I'll set a date in stone within a week or so, depending on how quickly you all respond.
Eye protection is MANDATORY. None of this 18 and over optional business. I was knocked out last weekend by a nerf dart. As in blacked out from the impact. You have no choice in this matter. Wear eye protection, end of story. Make sure your friends bring something too.
Quick note on gun bans:
Bring more than one gun. Down in So Cal we have a set of rules, but I don't want to impede on whatever you people up there already have working for yourselves, so just bring more than one and if I deem that something is unsafe, I'll tell you so. Just don't bring singled Titans, Plugged Big Blasts, and Singled 5K's. Oh, and let's try to stay away from homemades. All else is fair game, including Nerf Swords, etc.
Wear comfortable clothing. Please limit yourselves to ONE article of of camouflage clothing. This is not mil-sim, and this is not woodsball. You will be playing in SCHOOLYARDS. Wear something you're comfortable wearing while engaging in physical activity. Ladies, please be modest. Guys, please please PLEASE be modest. You're not too sexy for that shirt, I promise you, and NO ONE likes butt cleavage. Wear a belt, or I'll shoot what shouldn't be showing. For serious.
Bottled water is a good idea. I can't promise that these schools will all have drinking fountains. Bring a sack lunch, or money to go grab something. DO NOT skip lunch; you will regret it, and I don't want to listen to you whining about being tired. Hell yes you're going to be tired, but not at 2 in the afternoon.
Lastly, I need YOU! I need ALL of you! Bring yourself, and bring some friends! All of those friends of yours that have been laughing at your silly little nerf gun hobby? Grab them and bring them, because this event, I promise you, is going to be one that will convince them that nerfing is fun and worth their time. I only ask that you supply yourself and all of those you bring with guns and darts. I cannot supply anyone with materials, as I live on a meager budget and will only be able to handle myself and the three people I'll be bringing along. If you don't have modified guns or play with stock guns because that's what you prefer, don't worry! Come anyway! Many a time, someone has shown up with stock guns and still done VERY well.
Time to get down to business. The dates we have to work with are:
Please respond as quickly as you can so we can set this in stone and have some fun! Looking forward to meeting all of you there.
