The Event: Winter SENO. The premier Southeastern foamfest, sans bugs and blistering heat.
The Date: Jan. 2, 2009. That gives you over a month, so be ready.
The Hosts: Zaxbys and myself. This war will be run with a bit stricter rule set than has been the case in many Southern wars.
The Location:

Langford Middle School
3019 Walton Way
Augusta, GA 30909-3470

We had a great time at SOFA at Langford, and it should be great for a winter war.

The Rules: Wear eye protection. Don't be a douche. Take your hits, bring enough darts, pick up your darts, and bring actual guns. If you don't have appropriate weaponry, say so. One of us will gladly hook you up with something. But trying to run a primaries round when your teammates are carrying weak weaponry is lame.

Make sure to bring some sort of real (NF) springer pistol. The only airgun allowed in pistol rounds, at all, is the SSPB. We WILL be doing pistol rounds, and probably quite a few of them. There's really not an excuse to show up with no pistol, and if you do, you'll be sitting out some fun, fun rounds.

There will be a lot of powerful guns on the field. I highly encourage you to use either single BB darts, or (preferably) slug darts. I would really prefer to not see slingshot darts on the field, and this has rarely been a problem, since hardly anyone uses them down here. Let's keep it that way.

The Ban List: Melee weapons, plugged singled BBBBs, plugged titans, and any hopper clips holding more than 4 rounds. Any homemade airguns will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis--not that I expect anyone to bring one. Also, if you bring a modded RFSG, bring a backup. I will not be allowing more than one RFSG on any one team. And if you bring anything crazy, like a JOBAR or a converted water gun, I expect it to be used politely. Also, I reserve the right to remove any gun that I deem dangerous from play.

Games: Copious amounts of FFA and 3:15 deathmatch, with a side of gunslinger. I do not plan on doing a zombie round, unless I need a few minutes in which to take a siesta. No long stops between rounds, and if a round goes on too long, the remaining parties will be confined to a smaller area to shoot it out. I have no intention of watching one dude chase another dude for a half-hour.

Attendance:

Rork+2-4
Zaxbys+2-3
Umpshaplapa+1
Flyingchicken+1
Zipx
xtoss

Maybes:

Asideofnerf
Rogue+1
Nerkum

Zax, check craigslist for "nerf guns". Some guy in Loganville has one.
I'll most likely make this war...+1. And I'll have pistols this time 'round.

Not sure I'm going to be able to make this one. I use "slingshot" darts pretty much exclusively and have for about the last five years. I don't really want to change all my darts for one war. If the whole community moves in this direction, then it might be worth it, but for now I think I'd rather keep playing the way I have been.

If you bring slingshot darts then we will not make you sit out... just remember the don't be a dick rule is always in effect. So soulman if tat is all that is stopping you then don't worry about it.

And yes Rork I am rather sad.

We'll see. I have a couple of other projects in the works that may work. I'm also not sure about my schedule, but I'd say it's about 50/50 chance right now...put me down as a maybe.

As Zax said, I don't want to keep anyone from coming over dart weight. If I was going to be a hard-liner about it, I'd have instituted an outright ban. However, at Summer SENO, there were problems with your darts, including a full-on pierced skin incident as the result of a close 2K shot (not by you). This time around, I don't anticipate the kinds of behavior that caused that, plus everyone will be wearing heavier clothing. I just want everyone to have a good time, and as a part of that, if anyone opts to bring heavier darts, I simply ask you to use restraint when it comes to shooting people with them at closer ranges. I definitely hope you can make it.

I understand the concern with the heavier weights. I lost some blood from a close up from a Big Blast (a definite violation of the "don't be a dick" rule). But, unfortunately, I just found out that I'm a definite no. I have to report on noon that day. I thought I had leave until the fourth, but they're making us report in the middle of a Saturday. Sorry to miss this one. Hope to catch you guys next time.

It is doubtful. I think I'll be getting back to Augusta at like 10 that night but mabe the night before.
Some of my darts are a little heavier than regular but I can pull the trigger on the LBB at different speeds to adjust.

We'll start at 10 and go until it's dark, allowing enough time for one last thorough dart sweep at the end. Are you/your associates likely to make it?

I'm still waiting to hear from the LoS. Also, me and Zax have been discussing the need for more pistol rounds, as has been previously mentioned. In at least one or 2 of these, I will be allowing automatics. So bring your magstrike/RF20/whatever.

Speaking of pistols, I found your NF mixed in with my stuff from the war. Can I just give that back to you at SENO?
Sorry...

About a week and a half to go. Maybes, start sounding off. This war is going to rule on a fairly comprehensive basis regardless, but the more the merrier...

As much as I hate to say, my attendance is looking unlikely. In the probable event that I don't make it, I will CERTAINLY be at the next. Have fun my friends.
