Posted 18 March 2010 - 10:06 PM

We've been having at least one war every month since last August. We're looking to continue that with more POW! wars through the coming year. We generally have at least 10 local nerfers in attendance, although most of the time the number is in the 15-20 range (if not higher).

Although we mostly only get locals, everyone is welcome as long as you bring an appropriate attitude (they're toy guns, people). Even if you don't have many well-modified blasters, chances are good that someone will have an extra.

Details of upcoming and past wars, and Pittsburgh nerf in general, can be found at pittsburghnerfclans.webs.com.

Find out about some of our previously used war venues (as well as some venues which may be used in the future) here.

We have pictures of previous wars here as well as some videos here and here.


This post will be updated as each war approaches and is meant to convey general war information to and provide a place to ask questions for anyone that does not usually visit the Pittsburgh nerf forums. A link to additional details will be provided when available.

All dates are to be considered tentative up to and including the night before the scheduled date (especially in cases of inclement weather).

March Info Bump:

We're having the war HERE RAIN OR SHINE

Preliminary attendance appears to be 12-16. Weather should be nice, but hey, it's Pittsburgh.

Please post final attendance plan in the PNC Thread, or here if you're not a member over there. (And if you're not a member over there, get a membership over there, duh.)

See you bitches in a few hours assuming I can find this park.

Also, this is far easier than making a thread for every war. I hope you don't just give up on updating it like JM.

10 bucks says one of John's guns breaks today. Probably his crossbow or his 1500.

I only accept cash; just bring it to the next war.

I'm a tad more lax than JWasko here, just don't try and pay me with Secret Shot 1s, I'm going to have 4 of them soon.

Gabe, I told you I've almost completely accident proofed all of the blasters that I use.

Also, Let's never nerf in the rain again. I still had fun, but I hate rain.

I'm pushing for the 25th as a friend of mine is getting home on the 20th and would like to come. Any objections?

Nope. As usual just count on me being there unless I say otherwise. Might be able to bring a friend or two but it depends on what they have going on and if they feel like being bitches.

I'm not going to be able to make it on any day until after May 8.

If Dom, Scud, & Co. says the 25th is cool with most of them, we'll go ahead and change it to the 25th.

PS: Who wants to make the topic on PNC?

PPS: POW! March video, Dom?

You bastard. Oh well it's not a desperate need at the moment.

And right now I have anywhere from 2-4 guests. Not sure how we're fitting eight in my car.

I could drive separately if need be but I do not like the idea of trying to navigate Pittsburgh with my shitty GPS. We'll find a way.

In all likelihood someone will back out, and we can always put Paige in the trunk, right Gabe?
Also, there is a good chance that I will be sporting the mustache again so be prepared for that.

Elliot's sick with a fever so he's probably not gonna make it. I'll see about bringing someone else but it's doubtful so it will probably end up being just me again.

It's more difficult to throw regular monthly nerf wars than most people reallize. I hope lots of PA, and maybe some OH, nerfers take advantage of this. Wish the wars weren't all 5 hour drives for me. A well established and active nerf community is a terrible thing to waste.

Nerfmonkey: Due to a volcanic eruption, we now only have to squeeze seven people in my car. Totally possible.

PrincexBuster: Who the fuck still plays Diablo 2. That shit was old as hell like 5 years ago.

VACC: Thanks much. If you ever do get the undeniable urge to come to a Pittsburgh war I'd recommend Clash of Steel in July. It's gonna be bad ass.

Ok, I believe the final head count is me, Frances, Derrick, Bowser, you, NerfMonkey, and whomever else you're bringing. It's gonna be a tight fit, but I think we can all get in my car.

Dates have been set for not one, but two wars in Western Pennsylvania this month.

Note that the Middlesex Sex Dwarves Sex War is right on the border of Ohio...perfect for any Ohio nerfers that might wish to join us.
