POW!
PITTSBURGH OFFSEASON WARS
------------------------------------
Here in Pittsburgh, we suddenly became sad upon the realization that the “Nerf Season” was coming to a close. Then out of nowhere, “POW!” We were hit by an amazing thought. That is, Nerf Wars held locally once a month during any and all conditions in varying locations for the development and conditioning of our nerfing “skillz”. So, to share with the community, we will be hosting wars locally every FOURTH SUNDAY of the month (except for December, when we will hold the war on the third Sunday to avoid holiday conflictions). The locations, times, and hosts will vary per war, so information will be added as it is made available. At the beginning of every month, this thread will be bumped once its war is finalized. To start things out though, POW! October is already planned. See the year schedule below for details as they come. Refer to information below that for general information about all of the wars.
Remember, ALL ARE WELCOME! Just post to give us a heads up and be sure to specify which war you plan to attend.

This is a great idea! I've recently moved into the area and I'm hoping to get to as many of these as possible. Unfortunately, I can't make the October one, but as soon as some dates get nailed down for the other months, I will start putting in requests for those days.

Hey thanks for putting this up; it's magnificent. It's well written (couldn't expect any less for the office supplies holster guy), and I think it'll hold up until next season. I'd also like to add that carpooling is an option for anyone who lives near me (grove city, 16127). Or if you're on the way, and you aren't an asshole I might even pick you up. We like to keep attendance as high as possible which could be hard as the weather gets gross and nasty.
I take I-79 to Pittsburgh, and I'm a pretty safe driver (three years, no wrecks). Feel free to contact me for a ride/carpooling options.

I will be attending our October outing.

I'd also like to apply as host for Nov (location still TBD, but definitely have one in mind that is not Armstrong [so as to give it a rest after 3 wars]), and welcome anyone who wishes to co-host.

@Jedijoe9: Awesome, and welcome. If I may ask, would Nerfing at Little Blue be possible/feasible during summer months?

@Decimator: Did you ever get the bugs worked out of that "doomsayer"? Also, how much?

Also: This is a good kind of face punching.

Shouldn't that be Jan, Feb and Mar 2010?

If I can get a ride for any of them I'd be willing to try to make it up.

I'm about 99% sure I can come so count me in man(s?).
I also want to apologise to sublime for when he invited me to that war a while back and I couldn't come but forgot to say something.

Please update your attendance for October POW! as soon as possible so the hosts can plan accordingly.

Also, If you're signed up to plan a latter war, please post details as they are made available so that they may be added to the schedule.

Might I also add to be sure to use proper grammar and stay on topic from now on in this thread. If we really aren't as stupid as we Pittsburghers like to think we are (except when one of us forgets he's using a BBBB in Defend the Core and leads a charge only to blast a hole through the core), we should reflect it in our posts.

Thanks all.

I'll be there. I think John and I are going to carpool again but if that falls through I'll just have to find my way through Pittsburgh on my own.

I'm attending, plus ~4.

Also, here's a few details for POW!: Nov.

Time: 10:00-?

Location: Dormont Park
1801 Dormont Ave, Pittsburgh Pa 15216

Backup Location: Shouldn't be needed, as this park is HUGE.

Attendance: (too early?)


NOTES:

I know how we all feel about hills. LNDH was proof enough that hills are what kills, but this park is truly something special,
and it's been a location I've been hiding saving for when the time is right. This park is huge, with some rolling hills, so it's
not A hill, but rather varying terrain. But that's not the main attraction. This park has a wooden fort-like playground. By this
time of year, I expect it to be very sparingly populated, if not barren. There's also a very viable locale for an assault gametype.

Also: With this war's proximity to Thanksgiving, and hopefully the support of attendees, I'd like to see every Nerfer display some
goodwill to his brothers and sisters in foam by contributing to a potluck lunch. I don't ask you to bake for 3 weeks straight and
feed us all or anything of the sort, but if each person brings some form of a snack, we'll all be able to feast as comrades.

Please contact me upon RSVPing to let me know what you'd like to bring.

I will be there (of course), and yes NerfMonkey carpooling is totally cool. I should be able to get together at least two more people.

I'm really liking Dom's pot luck style lunch idea. I will be sure to bring some fantastic chocolate chip cookies, and possibly an entree depending on how many stefans I have to make.

It's still on for this weekend, but the shared food is for the November one. I'm not saying if you absolutely wanna feed some of us that you can't, just that it's planned for the Thanksgiving one.

*Woosh*

As long as your nerfing abilities are better than your understanding of sarcasm and/or jesting, you don't have to prove to us that you can nerf with a resume (however much I wish I could require one for wars I host). Once the attendance list is up for those months I'll have you down as maybes until you confirm. Sounds good to me.

In other news: Most details for POW! November are up. Actually, everything is except for a couple logistical issues (definite staging area, bathrooms etc.) and a facebook page. Please browse the information and post with your attendance status if interested. Or, as always, feel free to post if interested in attending any of the other upcoming wars. Thanks all.

Hey guys.

I am planning on attending the November foray, it's just a matter if I can get there, and now that my roommate has a car, I feel like that shouldn't be a problem. I may even be able to convince a few friends to come tag along.

Also I plan on hosting the December/Christmas war being as its become a sort of tradition being it was the first major war held in Pittsburgh by Steel City Nerf. I will post details for it as soon as I get the ok from my pastor. (It will be held at my church)

Hi kids. Today I'd like to bump this thread as a reminder that POW!November is next Sunday. Please update your attendance as accurately as possible and:
EVERYONE NEEDS TO POST TELLING SUBLIMEDOM777 WHAT THEY ARE BRINGING FOR THE POT LUCK LUNCH!
I'll be updating the attendance now as well as all other info for the war, so be sure to check the all the info. I'll list what everyone is bringing as well by their name on the attendance list. The rule will be that if you don't bring something to share, people will not have to share with you. Sound good everyone? Expect details for POW!Christmas soon.

Well I will be there +2 and I will hopefully be bringing pumpkin pie that I intend to make from scratch, but if that doesn't work out I'm thinking some sort of casserole and possibly cookies. Spiced cranberry juice is also a possibility.
