During both World Wars, Battery Kinzie defended Puget Sound from enemy warships. Built to withstand direct hits from battleships, it is constructed in a similar style as German bunkers on D-Day. 3 stories of concrete rooms and hallways form a perfect place for indoor/outdoor Nerf warfare!

This is our 5th and final Nerf war this year in Fort Worden.

Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image
Posted Image

Date: Sunday, December 6th

Time: 11 am until dusk

Location: Battery Kinzie in Fort Worden State Park, Port Townsend, WA

Directions. Battery Kinzie is located in the northeast corner of Fort Worden State Park in Port Townsend, WA. Upon entering the park, you will want to turn east on Eisenhower Ave and then north on Harbor Defense Way. The three parking lots are located on the left just before you approach the lighthouse. Battery Kinzie is directly north of the parking lots. Google maps location: 48.142478, -122.760850

Cost: The State Park is free. Carpooling is encouraged and seats are available.

Sandwiches, soda, and water will be provided.

Loaner weapons are available.

Bring rain and cold weather gear. The battery is mostly indoors, but this is on the coast!


Rules:

All players under 18 need parental consent. That means they have to speak to ME directly. I need to do this for each war. I can meet or call your parents before the war if you would like. Lawsuits suck.

Eye Protection. We have extras.

OFFICIAL NERF AMMO ONLY. We picked up a wide variety (White, black, gray, and red) of dangerous homemade ammo with metal weights and washers poking out at the end of the day last time. They look like they didn't stand up to the concrete very well and we have no interest in having those things fired at us. I just picked up over 100 streamlines to replenish the communal ammo, so there is plenty to spare.

All modded blasters are subject to approval. These are point blank range firefights!

This is a state park. We keep it clean, respect other guests, and behave ourselves.

Any threats of actual violence, unsafe play, or other nonsense will not be tolerated.



If you are interested, reply or contact me via PM. An accurate headcount helps with the logistics.
Any suggestions or game ideas should be sent via PM for best response.

I'm not gonna pick you up in NY, and drive you to WA.

As for my attendance, thats pretty close to my finals week, so we'll see as it draws closer.

I'm going to push for a visit to Seattle that weekend. Perhaps I can finagle an appearance. I think Sunday actually works out well for me, considering we could drive up on Saturday, visit with family, I could attend the war, and then we can drive back afterward.

There's about a 9/10 I will be making it. Just don't want to make any promises I can't keep. And if I do go I will most likely be bringing friends, different from my group.

I guess you have some heavy duty industrial strength toilet paper holders. Do they advise you to wear eye protection when changing rolls?

If I can find myself a ride, I'll be there. I'd say I'll most likely be there. Finding a ride can't be too difficult, can it?

I can get a ride up there, but since I'm 14, I will need to get you to talk to my parents. Thats kinda a fly in the ointment for my plans, but I'm sure we can work out something. Mark me down as a kinda-sorta-possibly-maybe-coming. Too bad you can't delay it so that it falls in my winter break. Oh well, see you all there.

So you see a penguin walking down the street. Looks harmless right, so you keep on walking past him. You turn around to seem him walk away, only to find yourself staring down the barrel of a .38 revolver.

Curses. Looks like our visit will actually be the last week of December, rather than the first week. I won't be able to attend, sorry guys.

Alright, well I'll talk about it amongst my group and see if something works out with them. Otherwise, that would work out well. I'd probably be within five minutes of your house.

Question: Al my streamlines have the tips cut off and the remaining cups of rubber are filled with hotglue. They would only be used in a raider, which won't even hurt point blank. In the even that I go, would this be allowed?

I can get you pics if necessary. Glint made a write-up for em a while back.

That's fine as long as there is no metal weights suspended in the glue.

Nope, just hot glue. But this is all hypothetical, because it will be an achievement to get a ride there and back. Especially with my hyper paranoid father who will only let me drive with my friends.

I have 12 confirmed. Many people have mentioned bringing friends, but haven't provided numbers yet. So this number is probably low. I'd expect between 15-25 people to show up.

As a reminder: Because most of the site is covered and paved, bad weather will not result in a canceled game. In fact, rain will keep the civilians away. However, the battery is directly on the coast, dress accordingly.
