Two weekends ago, Nerfer9, Blue, Just Some Bob and I had what was quite possibly the most Effeminate 4-man war in the history of ever. We finished up our day at Cooper elementary, which has enough unique playing areas all in the same place to rival (or even beat out) Sellers Elementary back home in Glendora.

That being said, the Season of Foam Nor Cal war will be there. There won't be any question about wether or not we'll be in an open field or anything of the sort, and EVERYONE will be on neutral ground, because quite frankly, it's not my home turf either.

Here's the rundown:

DATE:

JULY 18th, 2009

TIME:

10:00 AM (PST) until I get knocked out again.

WHERE:


Cooper Elementary School
750 Christine Dr.
Vacaville, CA‎

PARK IN THE MAIN LOT; YOU CAN'T MISS IT

LOGISTICS:

WHAT TO BRING
  • A GOOD night's sleep. You're going to want it.
  • SUNSCREEN. I can't stress this enough.
  • WATER, and LOTS of it. There may be drinking fountains available, but don't count on them.
  • Legal guns (see below), eye protection (see below), and ammunition (see below.)
WHAT TO LEAVE AT HOME
  • NO bad attitudes. If you're being a dick, you'll be treated like one, and you'll be jerked around until you explode. And you WON'T enjoy it.
  • We understand that accidents happen, but for the bulk of the day, please do what you can to keep foul language to a minimum, or at least at a low volume. It is a PRIVILEGE that we are allowed to use the facilities we use, NOT our right, so let's at least maintain a SOMEWHAT civilized demeanor, mmkay?
RULES
  • Bringing your own ammunition is MANDATORY
  • Wearing eye protection is MANDATORY. We play in closer quarters than what most of you are used to, and for your own good, I am demanding it of you. Please don't test me on this; you WILL be asked to leave, or at the very least, be forced to wear a borrowed pair.
  • NO GUNS PAINTED COMPLETELY BLACK.
Legal Weaponry
  • Any and all nerf and off-brand foam projectile firing blasters that are not on the 'banned' list.
  • Nerf Brand Foam Swords (no boffers or pool noodles on PVC, please). ALL H2H users must be using a projectile-firing blaster of some kind as their PRIMARY weapon. A pistol in your pocket does not count; it must be in your hand.
  • Pokegrenades loaded with legally-constructed nerf ammunition (no weights showing, etc.) Maximum of ten feet on bungee lengths. Must remain tethered to your person when thrown.
GUN BAN LIST
  • NO singled Titans. No exceptions. Shotgunned, missile, or ball titans are acceptable.
  • NO singled signal launchers. Again, shotgunned, missile and ball variants are acceptable.
Note: A shotgunned Titan or Signal Launcher does NOT mean shotgun-loading a single barrel. That is strictly for multiple barrels linked to ONE air output, firing simultaneously, with a minimum of three barrels.
ANY gun that seems to be overpowered for any reason during the day is subject to removal from play without notice. Don't argue about it; it is YOUR responsibility to bring a backup weapon of some sort.

Gameplay rules will be discussed AT the war. There's no reason to discuss anything like that here in the thread, because we will be going over it again at the war anyway.

This is set up to be the most Effeminate nor cal war ever, but it needs YOU there to make it happen. BRING YOUR FRIENDS!

Actually, while we're at it...bring YOURSELF! A number of Southern California nerfers are making plans to come up to this war, in exchange for many of you coming to ours the week before.

I'm up in the air right now, I need to talk to my parents to get the go ahead. Plus it would be nice if we could make a convoy up there, but I'll worry about that once I get the okay.

Count me in.

There's a small chance I can't go as I might be in L.A for a couple more days. Possibly getting back too late to get prepared. Thanks

It sounds fun but i didn't realize how long of a drive it is. Like Axelion I have to talk to my dad and see how he feels about that. I also dont want to make that drive by myself so it kind of depends on Axelion too.

Bags and the So Cal convoy might be able to pick you up on their way if you ask them nicely...

As for the NASCAR traffic, Bob, that weekend was a big weekend, and you won't have the same problems this time around. It's a big Father's day race where all the big names from out east, Jeff Gordon, Jimmy Johnson (all those people that everyone knows the name of without knowing why) come out to race. You won't have any problems next time around. That's where Lori's dad was last weekend (disclaimer: that's the only reason I knew about it...)

Wild Horses ARE a very real possibility. This IS a farming community, and I've spent my mornings for the last three weeks breaking one of Lori's Grandpa's mares...keep your eyes on the road at ALL times...

I hate to say this but I may no longer be a Key figure in the SoCal Convoy. But I am gonna try.

If we get a convoy together, count me in. I'm looking at my calendar and it looks blank. Lord knows something always sneaks up on me last minute. I don't mind chipping in for gas and food for the convoy though.

I figured it would be easier to do this here than send a bunch of PMs.

To anybody with the Southern California Convoy, if you think you would have room in your car to pick me up on the way to northern California please PM me (or find me at geddon and talk to me about it). Any rides would be greatly appreciated (I would of course help for gas and the like). Also, if Falcon doesn't want this here let me know and I'll remove it.

Anyway, I'm a definite. Just need some body to ride with.

Like I said, as long as there's more than like, one other person going I'm good to go. So then I guess that would be a confirmed yes. I just need to know now so that I can ask my work for time off.

Totally, awesome. Hopefully nobody else goes, because I'd really like to go to this one.

If you wanted, CB and Bags could go by themselves and grab Waffle AND CAPants, and you could go with Micah and Aaron, who wanted to visit the 10th planet up in San Fran while they're there. Ask Micah about it on the Scun board.

Alright, count me in on this adventure. I leave the 10th and come back the 14th so I'll be free for it. Like I said, I can pay for food and gas and what ever supplies. I'll even put in extra if it means I don't have to drive.

I'd love to come check this out. I don't have any nerf guns anymore, so I'd probably have to borrow, beg, or steal yours. ;)

I want to meet all the bay area people about an idea for a reunion war I had that I think I can make fly. I don't have a car in the city though, and Google Transit isn't giving me any useful information on getting to Vacaville. Is anybody heading through San Francisco, or somewhere in the east bay that can pick me up and drop me off at a BART station?

Rock on.

Ok, so I just realized I can only go if we come back of Saturday. I'm leaving sunday for a 5 day beach trip. Anyone in our convoy know when we'd be coming back?

most likely anyone riding with me is going back on Sunday, because I dont want to drive that kind of distance back after a long day of nerfing, But I'm not 100 percent on this just yet. But knowing that I got Cannon + willing to tag along makes it easier for me to be game to do it.
