When: November 14, 2009 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Where: Centennial Park
9400 S Oak Park Ave
Oak Lawn, IL 60453
Posted Image
(It's the same pic from last time, we'll meet by the park where we last Nerfed)

It's an awesomely large park with open fields and wooded areas for Nerfy goodness. It's in the heart of Oak Lawn, IL. We'll plan on meeting by the playground. I'll gladly give my number to anyone who wants it to ensure an easy meetup.

This time we'll be bringing obstacles a plenty as well as cardboard boxes. Anything you can bring will be great.

Who's Attending:
Snake51886 + 5
Buns
Demon Lord + "friends"
Liter
Kane + Napervillians (if they exist anymore)
AnyaSeijin
Merz
Dan the Vulcan Man!
boarder07 (NerfHQ)
Ryan McNumbers
Zorn
Ice9

Maybes:

Unable to Attend due to sand in the Mangina:
Noodleownz

Relevant Information: The last Showdowns went splendidly, let's keep it up

Here's what to bring:
- A few guns; at least one primary, it'll be chilly so expect breakage. It's always good to have a backup
- Ammo, and a fair amount of it. If you forget you'll have to beg or worse...
- Eye Protection, you don't bring any, you can't play
- LUNCH AND DRINKS
- The only shields that will be permitted are Manta Rays and Crossfire Shields
- The ONLY melee weapons allowed are Nerf Brand weapons, end of discussion

Here's what you shouldn't bring:
- The same rules apply here as they have in the past. If you don't know by now check the other CS threads or PM me.
- Hopper Clips are officially banned
- If you shoot someone with a 100ft+ gun at <20ft, you take a hit as well

Since we've had a problem with jump-ins in the past, they are not allowed. They can watch if they want, but CANNOT PARTICIPATE. I have spoken.

Questions? Comments? Post in the thread, if it's of a personal matter PM me.

Count me as a maybe for now.

Also, if things go correctly, me and Snake will be having a cookoff. I'll be making Cinnamon Apple Cake, and if anyone is allergic to common things (peanuts, cinnamon) please tell me.

After checking with the Park District people, there is a fest/game thing in the park on the 7th. Since the 14th was also a pretty good day for everyone, that is the new day for the war. I've adjusted everything accordingly.

The no jump-in policy has been added, and Merz the cookoff should be held off until an indoor war...which will be soon. I'll share everything when the details are ironed out.

Awwww


Also, I can't say I'm a definite at this point. Don't you think the 14th will be too cold? By the way the weather has been acting, it will probably be around the 30's, but who am I to say the weather, its Chicago.

That's correct and ChANO1 was just as cold. The weather wasn't much of a factor either of those times. This will be the last outdoor war until April next year most likely.

Ahhaha, woops. I was wrong.

I'm a definite now, and I've been fully convinced it won't be too cold! I was thinking the last wars were warmer, but now I know that they weren't. Thanks!

Still unlikely I'll come.

That's, like, almost every gun the Unholy Three has. Does that INCLUDE guns with four barrels, or is it a strict n > 4 where n is the number of barrels deal? It seems like n > 4 but otherwise I'm worried for the 1500s and Man Cannons.

Pfft. Real men use a speed loader anyways.

Although, with a ban on turrets, a ban on RSCBs should be in order too.

The ban is exactly as written.

The key terminology is MORE than 4 barrels that shoot 90ft+. I'm on the fence with RSCB's. They have dead space and trade off some range for RoF. Not to mention that even with a ball valve or similar product it still takes time to reload. While with the recent advancements in turreting, you lose no range and have rear loading at the same time. I'm extremely open to what people think and am willing to make adjustments.

Anyway, it's a week to the war. Lets get the maybes confirmed and whatnot. The weather's been fair and sunny as of late. Preliminary reports are of 50 degrees with a 10% chance for precipitation.

Said the man who used both a Firefly turret and hopper clip more than a speed loader at Chanos 2.5 and 3.

I suppose it was never implicated that you were a real man, though.

The implication was only that I'm more of a man in you. The man part of team man cannon perhaps. But then that makes you a ... cannon?

Despite the fact that snake will be backing out of the cook-off competition...I'll be bringing apple cinnamon cup cakes for the hell of it.



Oh, and Litersize can't have any.
