We've been needing a new area for a while now. We actually got bitched out by the same teacher the last two times we tried to war at Venado. Why he has no life and hangs around his classroom all weekend is beyond me, but it's time to move on.

I'm assuming you're somewhere near Shaw reservoir which appears to be about 1:40 drive from my house. If your parents are okay with it, this sounds very promising.

Toj please supply some details. what time you want us there? food, bring money for BBQ? can you post your address or just email it to me (rweitekamp@earthlink.net)? i need to double check may 15 but it sounds fine.

secondly: does anyone want to want to war sunday april 18th? i know c has a bbq and spoon isn't on this planet any longer, but hell, i want to nerf. preferably not in oceanside, but if that's where it'll happen then that's that. if we can't go to venado, we'll have up near my house for all i care. anyway, if anyone is available lets try to figure this out at least a week in advance.

Hey I know this is a bit off topic but I'm going to California to see some old friends around June in the Summer. Any chance you usually have a war around that time and if so what city. If you were having on (and if it was ok with you guys) I might just come to one and hang around.

we usually have a war in the summer called Armageddon, Vacc and Co. have come out in the past for that war, Groove was there last time. hopefully it'll be while your down here, just make sure you speak up in the planning thread for that.

I"m up for it, why not good old Venado? (I was't there when you guys got yelled at) its a public area and you guys got permission to have nerf wars there right? plus regulars know where it is.

The only area you can't use at Venado is the urban area. There has always been a no trespassing sign on the hill just past the portables and now there's a guy enforcing it. He lets people come play basketball but he doesn't let us come nerf. We never had permission as far as I know.

The Alamo and the CTF grass area are both still decent and we haven't had any problems with them. Mainly, I think people are just a little tired of Venado. The dick teacher taking away the best area just gave us an excuse to change things up.

Toj, I want to make sure that your parents are cool with us coming over May 15 and find out if they're comfortable with you posting your address here. If not, you can PM it to me and I'll distribute it to everyone who says they're coming. that BBQ sounds rawkin, let me know what's up with that because I'd be happy to pitch in for a share of the grub.

Okay, if anything, 5/15 would be better for me, as I wouldn't be working against a deadline. I can finish by next Sunday, but that would be tough.

ShatteredDreams, where exactly is your house? Address so we can mapquest it, please?

I'd be intereseted in how far away it is, as my dad was about at his driving limit to go to Venado from West L.A.

The war would have been good, and everything was in preperation, in fact they said it would be ok, but then I had band choir concert moved to that day and now it won't work..do you guys think the war could be on 5/8th (week before) or 5/22nd (week after)? This may not coincide with zero's visit, in which case you guys will probably hold the war in the normal areas...but is in Cali during the weekend before/after the 15 it could still work...I hope.

As to the time, I'd say the normal Yano time would be fine I guess, then the BBQ would be at either 12 A.M., or 3 P.M., so that you guys could have a nice lunch or a lunchy/dinner thing.

I hope you guys have fun at the war this sunday though, make sure its a good one!

*edit*
Oh, and I'll go get the pictures now, Cx, if I e-mailed them to you, would you post them? As I am HTML illiterate.

*edit 2*
I think I'll just led Cx distribute the address, as people may send pr0n to my house to get me in trouble...

There's no chance of Zero making a war on any Saturday/Sunday other than the 15th. As it is, he'd have to rearrange his transportation to accomodate that day.

Perhaps we should plan the June (Armageddon) war for Toj's house?

dude, that sucks about your band choir thing being moved, that would have been cool to see zero. for now i'll say i'm available for either the weekend of the 8th or the 22nd, but that's not for sure, i'll figure that out for sure soon. let's try to have armageddon down there this summer, that sounds cool. Cxwq, will you email me toj's address when you get it(rweitekamp@earthlink.net)? also, i'd love to see those pictures.

okay, next sunday, the 18th, i am going to have a nerf war. any and all of you are invited, please email me soon (let's say by mondayish) and i'll give you the address. my house is in altadena, about 10-15 minutes north of the 210/134 intersection. about 15 minutes north/east from the Pasadena Rose Bowl, if that helps at all in judging distance. if your interested, also let me know what time frame you'd want to nerf...if you want to go from 9-5 i can deal with that, i don't mind nerfing for just part of the day either. depending on people/preferences we can war around my house, my neighbors house (need to check that for sure), and there's also a grove of olive trees in the foothills of the mountains (like a 5 minute walk from my house) we like to nerf in (dart loss will be pretty high) and there's a park a block away from my house (which i'd prefer to stay away from for PR reasons, but it's an option). there's a jack in the box, a quiznos, a local burger place, and a local sandwich place all about 5 minutes drive from my house, and i can give at least a few people rides down. right now i'm gunna have about 4-5 people there, my neighbors/siblings/friends, and i'd love it if some of you guys can show.

Sorry guys I just got back from a week in London visiting Steph, and I have the flu. I'll try to be around more from now on seeing as how we're actually PLANNING stuff now!

5/15 is fine for me, and so far 5/8 and 5/22 would be ok also but those weekends may fill up as we get closer to them. I'm cool driving down to Oceanside, I'll ask my people here if they could do a 5/15 war. My guess is that I'd be bringing 2 others.

As for your war this Sunday the 18th Ray, Matt Kashuba said he'd come and I think I can make it. However I wouldn't be able to stay all day, I'd probably have to leave around 3 or 4pm as I'm going to have a shitload of work to do that day. I'll ask if Jason and Jordan (and anybody else) would be able to make it, but don't get your hopes up.

I've got plenty of extra guns but I have almost NO ammo, like 50 darts. I've got supplies to make maybe another 50 darts or so, but if your ammo works in our brass and PETG guns we may need to gank some off of you. Hmm, though I guess with 6 or so people that would be plenty.

So in short, May is open right now but that may change. I can reserve 5/15 for the war though if that's the date it'll happen. As of now I'm 75% sure about next Sunday (18th) with Kashuba at Ray's house.

Well, shitty news guys... I can't make it the 15th. I already PM'ed Cx about this, but I thought it would only be right to apologize to those of you who considered attending the May 15th war. I minced dates with a highschool prom (damn tradition to the deepest layer of hell...) that I have long (~3 months) promised to attend, complete with non-refundable tickets and an occupation of the entirety of the day of May 15th. My fickle family has reshuffled their vacation for this event (they wouldn't for the war, but hey, high school proms for girls they don't know are precious!) so that I'll be in Cali from the night of the 9th to the early morning of the 13th. I understand that many of those that attend these wars are in high school, making a weekday war otherwise impossible, so I apologize for abusing Cxwq's welcome, and for mincing anyone's schedules. Just glad it was caught this early. Thanks to all that considered such a war.

I'll see if I can save enough money to come out to a LANO/YANO this summer, though. Doesn't look like I'll be doing much more than working and taking a language course this summer anyways: Perfect time for a vacation.

Otherwise, good luck with planning a May war! ...Aside from the fact that this is the April war planning thread...

okay, well, i'll make sure i make as many as possible this week. from what i remember, i think my darts are just a little bit bigger than yours, but they work fine in PETG, fit snug in 17/32", and slide nicely in 9/16".

I understand that many of those that attend these wars are in high school, making a weekday war otherwise impossible

well then, i guess we'll just have to have a night war. i think the 10th would be the only night i could do it, because i have a 10th grade retreat thing the 11th and 12th. but eh, even the 10th might not be a possibility. sorry, just a whim. if i could come, i could start driving between 2:30 and 3:00, and i probably will have to be home before 11 (maybe earlier if i haven't done my work). if we are going to have a night war, lets try to make it indoors. anyone got a huge house?

okay, anyone coming to RayNO, please try to get to my house (i'll email you directions if you need them) around 10AM on the 18th. we want to start nerfing around 10:15. i think basically what will happen is we will just nerf at my house until anyone who's late shows up, and then we'll head over to the olive tree grove. bring anything that you would bring to a YANO, sunglasses, sunscreen, etc. and also you might want to bring some bottled water, i'll try to have a bunch available the day of the war. Oh, if anyone has flagging tape already (spoon?) could you please let me know, if no one does i'll buy some this week. we're going to play by the same rules we play at YANOs, unless it is more fun to do otherwise.
questions, etc: rweitekamp@earthlink.net

so far people coming to RayNO:
Me, my brother, Iceman17, 1 or 2 of my other friends, Ice Nine and Bobert (maybe), Silent_Merc, Spoon and Matt (75%). i think we'll have a rocking time.

Okay, sweet. A way at Ray's on the 18th.? Sounds great.

I have about 140ish darts, but a lot of them are insanely tough to get into PETG and you have to really cram to get them into 17/32".

Okay, I dunno about Bobert, but for my deadline, friends are coming out in spades. My chances of coming are pretty good. I'll probably have to grovel some, but the chances are pretty good.

Oh, and no RF20. That thing just refuses to work.

If anyone wants, I'll try and bring my camera.

Alright, let's halt the May war sub-thread we've got running here. It was basically just so Zero could war with us so we'll kick the planning for the next war over to the Armageddon '04 Planning Thread.

Hope everyone has fun this weekend at RayNO.

feel free to bring your camera. i'm going to try to get my friend to film/nerf, if he does we're going to make a movie, hopefully to that dynamite hack song "boys-n-the-hood", i just can't get over how funny that could be.

Alright, let's halt the May war sub-thread we've got running here.

okay, so is the may war completely off?

That would be my preference. I don't think people are going to be able to manage monthly wars and I'd like to see a big turnout for Armageddon in June. That said, I don't own the SoCal nerf scene and perhaps it's time for me to step down from my self-proclaimed organizer role. I haven't been very good at pulling the community together.

sounds fine with me, i was just looking forward to giving Zero a big hug, but now that he's a going to be dancing the night away, that wouldn't have happened anyway. um...if a bunch of people are dying to nerf in may i'm up for it, but let's definately try to pull of a 2002 style armageddon, 45+, hehe.

Yea I've got flagging tape and all that crap, no worries.

As for June, yea I agree it would be better to wait. Steph gets back (I believe) like June 16, so if we could do it in late June that would be best since I'll be losing Matt and Jason since they'll be home for the summer.

Okay.

For my 8th. grade year, all English classes have to do a project called an I-Search, on a subject you care deeply about. I chose airplanes, since I couldn't find any full-length, non-fiction books on it. It's year-long, but I'm in the equvilent of A.P. classes, so ours is due on April 23. So far, mine is 54 pages and I still need to do a lot (i.e. creative sources, an interview to be put in, note cards, and then organizing everything.). So I'm cramming to finish, and my county science fair project isn't helping, since my partner refuses to do any fucking thing.

That's what the deadline is.

god damn, even with sam ima have to do some recruiting. i'll try to get 5 there for you, i'd hate to be outnumbered by the visiting team. do you still need darts? because if you've got 5 people who need darts, ima have to make a shitload this weekend. anyway, 10 AM my house, we'll war there until everyone arrives, then we'll head over to the "forest". lunch will be tentative around 12-1, i don't care really when. we can end whenever spoon has to go.

oh, one of your matts needs a new name, because i wont put up with 2 matts.
