Hello, all. Before I say anything, Waffle came up with the name, thank you, Waffle. The date is August 8. The location is going to be Frays Park (though, I probably spelled that incorrectly). For those of you who don't know where that is, it's in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The time is going to be 9:00 to 5:00, but I'll be there early and stay there late. We're about 1.25 hours from the Ohio border, 1 hour from the Indy border, and 2 hours from Chicago.

Here's what not to bring.

- Absolutely no singled Titans. Plugged Titans must be shotgunned to at least FOUR barrels - a minimum of FOUR attached to the airtank, with all barrels firing upon the trigger pull.

- No singled AND plugged 4Bs, LBBs, National Geographic Guns, or Signal Launchers. Plugged will imply shotgunned to at least two barrels.

- Special cases on the above banned guns will be considered on a case-by-case basis; if you feel you have something that is listed as banned but doesn't perform powerfully enough to warrant banning you may bring it, but please don't waste our time with a singled, plugged Titan where you shotgun-load a single barrel.

- Air-powered homemades (spring-powered ones are acceptable) will be considered on a case by case basis as well but the limitations on those will be stricter, since they're generally able to put out a lot more air than most of the big blasters. If they shoot less than 140ft flat they'll probably be okay. +Bows are allowed, because they're awesome.

- In the pistol rounds, the following will be banned: SM750s, Secret Shot 2s, AT2Ks, and some other high powered air pistols. Again, if you feel that you have a gun that should be an exception to this banned list, by all means, bring it along for testing.

- Do NOT bring anything painted all black. That is bad and you won't be allowed to use it, except for PASs and RFDGs. Those come in that color and are therefore fine. You need a flourecent tip on anything that's black, I'll probably have some orange DUCK tape.

Here's what you should bring.

-150-200 darts IF POSSIBLE- From my experience, more darts the better. People are always asking to borrow some, and doing a favor is a nice thing. Also, you don't want to be running out of darts in the middle of the round. NOTE: Don't rely on other people to bring darts for you.

-Bring at least a Primary and a pistol (That is not banned from above). You want to nerf, right?

-Obstacles/bunkers. We'll be playing in a park with some scattered trees and a jungle gym in the center, these will help.

-A melee weapon. We'll be having a melee round.

-EYE PROTECTION IS NECESSARY FOR GAME PLAY

And here's some stuff to keep in mind.

-Barrel tapping- Use this technique if you have the chance, no one likes being shot from 3 ft away. This is not mandatory, but again, dick moves are not fun.

-Absolutely no dart stealing. You can borrow darts or buy darts, but you can't just take them without asking.

-If you're caught commiting douche-nozzlery, you'll either be asked to leave or shot at randomly with high powered blasters.

-CALL YOUR HITS!!!

Game types will include the following. Don't mind telling me if you'd like another game type, I'll be sure to add it.

-Defend the core.
-Ridiculous Weapons
-Wingman
-pistols
-Team vs Team Deathmatch
-Possibly HvZ, I'm still learning that one.
-Possibly RvZ, I'm still learning that one, too.
-VIP
-Gun Slingers
-Melee


Definite players are listed below.

-Finn (me) + X
-Oodalumps + X
-Gold Hawk + 2
-Flounder + 1


Players that are unsure of participation are listed below.


-Twitch
-Mr_BadWrench
-2222Golf (YouBube, he lives across the street from the location, lol)


The location's in the link below.

Got work, so no can do. I could possibly make the 18th though, but then the co-host wouldn't make it.

Unfortunately, I can't make it due to a family outing. I'm already in in 'Kazoo, but my family re-union is that weekend. Sorry guys, I hope you have some fun.

The 28th was a typo, sorry. The real date was the 18.

I may be unvieling the Hell Storm and a mobile bunker/gun emplacement at this event. I'll post more details in the homemades thread. Also, the location is now Flescher field. Guys, I'm going to need conformation of attendance, too.

Thanks
Finn

Can you please update your first post with an address of the location?

Also, some pictures of the location would be helpful in improving your attendance.

Edit: Oh, and I'll most likely be attending maybe +1.

Sure, next time I'm at Wally's (a sandwich shop down the street from the location, which I'm going to eat lunch at) I'll get some photos of it. I don't think there's an address, on google maps it's just called flesher field.

Thanks

To me it looks like a giant open field.

Is this the one you're talking about?

GPS coordinates: 42.254903,-85.678360

If the playing area is good, I'll definitely come since a bunch of other Chicagoans are coming as well.

Pictures would be wonderful.

Yes it's just an open field, but I'm planning on bringing some obstacles. I kind of like that it's a big open field. Also (if you don't and you'd like a different location, feel free to suggest one), if others could bring obstacles, great, that would be really helpful.

Thanks
Finn

I am still trying to get my parents to drive me to this one. We only live like 1-2 hours away from Kalamazoo. Also, another game that would be fun is capture the flag.

No more people? We're almost at the golden number, infact, if I can get some of the maybies confirmed, we'll be good.
