Here we go. This time around we have TWO, count em, TWO wars going on. The same rules apply to both of them. Here we go with the night war first

Date: July 24th
Time: 3-9
Location: West River Parkway Park
Address: 499 West James L. Rice River Pkwy N
Minneapolis, MN 55401

Food: There is a pizza place nearby. Plenty of other places too. We will take a dinner break around 6ish.

Venom
Ryan

Here is the main attraction, the major Ex-SOF war.

Date: July 25th
Time: 9-4 or 5
Location: Langford park/SAP elementary
Address: W Langford Park, St Paul, MN 55108. Pictures. Meet by the Bandstand.

Food: There is a McDonalds about a mile away. There is an Arby's about 1.5 miles away. There are a bunch of other Restaurants within a few miles of the park. So, I suggest, if your going to have a car, plan out which place you want to to go to, and expect to have to drive people there.

Rules are standard:
-No plugged Big Blasts, Blast Bazookas, Signal Launchers or Titans
-No singled Rotorockets
-We may ask you to stop using any other guns that we deem to be unsafe.
-No realistic looking guns, especially when we play at the school.


I may change the locations, but I think these are pretty good for now. I'm open to any suggestions.

I am down for sure for the 25th and hopefully also for the 24th. I will talk with hilt today, I am pretty sure he is making it to these also and we will see if we can get a bunch of the rest of our gang to come along.

Gotta get off work and stuff.

Put me as a maybe for now, I intend to go but have to get everything cleared first.

Also- just a few blocks from the second location there is a coffee shop/bakery and a grocery store (it's my neighborhood area).

I suggest that for the Saturday war we meet up at the bandstand.

So you mean here in the little structure, Paul?

That is actually where I was thinking we should meet too. Beaver, is there a distinct place we could meet at the park that you found?

Put me down as a definite for the 25th, and a maybe for the 24th (I'm going to make an effort to come to both).

Broadway Pizza is a couple blocks north of the West River Parkway Park. It stands out, and would be a good place to meet up before the war. Otherwise, the park itself has a small parking lot.

I am in for both days. Does anyone know if there is going to be a Twins game on the 24th because that might make traffic heavier?

Put us as "Highly Potential Maybes" for both, we have relatives coming into town sometime that week, but I'm sure that will only clog the 24th. Need to pin down parental approval.

In Los Angeles it will. Away games both days.

I'm in both days.

Is there a reason the 24th war only goes 'till 9? Curfew lets us there 'til ten, and I was under the impression it was a night war.

If possible I'd like to swap rides with someone; IE I drive to this war and they do the weekend before, or vice versa. Or, I drive Friday and they drive Saturday. PM or post here.

Oh, you mean I actually have to reply before you will put me on the list? Even though I have not missed a war for about the past year? Damn. I see how it is Zach.

Anyway, guess what I will be rocking? I GOT MY SNAP FIXED!!!

This thing shoots like a +bow. I'm not even kidding. It fucking OWNS!!

And Ryan made me a +bow. So... yeah. diddle will ensue.

I finally fixed my Manta. It took too much thinking to make me realize I was thinking too much.

Anyways, be excited. You now have to shoot me twice as much to hit me half as much.

And this confirms ‘diddle’ as the new ‘smerf’ ;)

I am out for both, for which I curse frequently about because my Iron Man gun is done except for the PJ.

I think we're 100% for the 24th, and need to work on details for the 25th. Final details will be confirmed soon.
A few of us should meet at 4:00 at Broadway pizza before the war, it's a little pricey but well worth it.

I am definitely there for both days, driving myself.

I would still really like to swap rides with someone -- I'll drive the 24th or the 25th if you'll drive me on the 18th.

Lots of guns planned by then, we'll see if any are successes...

I assume we'll talk about August wars while together on the 25th?

Yeah, why don't we stay till 10? I think the curfew is 11 in the summer anyways.

Hmm. This might be the first war I'm actually able to make it to, considering the second one is two blocks from my house. :P
Edit: put me down as a maybe, if that wasn't clear.
