I'm posting this a few months in advance to see if we can create the biggest Midwest war to date. We're trying to rival Armageddon and Apocalypse. I'd be happy to get half as many.

What to bring:

-At least one primary, preferably two if your's breaks.
-Spring powered single-shot pistol.
-Darts, a lot of them
-Eye Protection, if you're not wearing any, you don't play
-Lunch and water. There are a few places within driving distance in downtown Glen Ellyn. However it would be much easier to bag a lunch.
-Proper attire. I don't want to see some douche bags showing up in camouflage or I will personally beat you down and tell you to leave. It's also going to be April, which can be cold/rainy sometimes. Dress appropriately.
What not to bring:
SLINGSHOT WEIGHTED DARTS
-Slug darts or stock ammo only. No exceptions.
-Pump plugged blasters with airtanks larger than a Mega Missile. You must have a working OPRV otherwise.
-Anything else will be determined on a case-by-base basis determined by the hosts.
-Blasters that are painted black will be tossed in the lake. And that means RFDGs, and PASs. Put some bright colored tape on them or paint them a different color. Extremely bright blasters will be encouraged. We don't want any problems with the police.
-Kids who are ≤13 years old must have their parent(s) present.
-Barrel tapping is not allowed.
-If you are being a douchebag I will ask you to leave.
-Please clean up after yourselves, we will be in a public park.
-Melee weapons will be allowed all gametypes except for Team Powerball and Defend the Core. Oversized melee shit will be banned. Use common sense, this is a Nerf war.
-Please refrain from yelling obscenities, we do not need the attention.
We'll be testing out our new shield rules for this war. You'll be limited on the size of your shield depending on what blaster you're wielding. Here is the breakdown..
Melee = 3 sq/ft
Single shot pistol, ranges < 50' - 2 sq/ft
Anything else, ranges <50' - 1 sq/ft
Blasters shooting over 50' will not be allowed to use a shield.
Shields can be made from whatever, cardboard should be reinforced with duct tape.
Arrive at no later than 9:45 AM. We will go over basic rules and safety. We will begin playing at 10:00. If you're not there and ready to go at 10:00, you'll miss the first round.

BEFORE YOU LEAVE - Clean up all your shit and help pick up darts.
I don't want to lose the priviledge of nerfing at this location by littering the park with nonbiodegradable foam. Same thing goes with trash. I'm going to bring garbage bags to set up near the staging area. Please be courteous. We have several backup locations if we need to move.
