The general idea of BAFF is to get a Bay Area (San Franscisco to San Jose) Nerf war once a month. Generally, it will be on the second Saturday of every month. If you have anything to say other than that you are attending, please send it out on the email list instead of posting here.
BAFF #7

Date: April 17th

Time:11 a.m. is when the first round will start, try to get to the field by 10:45 . We meet at the picnic table area.

ATTENDANCE: ......Please confirm if you are in or not

Alright, so the general plan is to get something going once a month for everyone that attended FMNO 2 and all other bay area nerfers. This will turn into a war thread once a location is chosen, but there were many ideas about this at the war, so post them and we can all choose the best location.

General directions:(Thanks Aquinas)
This is assuming that you are coming from I-880:

1. Exit 23 for Alvarado Niles Road
2. EASTBOUND on Alvarado Niles Road (I-880 NORTHBOUND = RIGHT turn, I-880 SOUTHBOUND = LEFT turn; hope it make sense)
3. RIGHT turn onto Hop Ranch Road
4. Hop Ranch Road curves left and turns into Marsh Hawk Road; parking for the park will be all along the right side of Marsh Hawk.

Also,

VERY IMPORTANT UPDATES ARE GIVEN BELOW!

Announcing a mailing list for SF Bay Area folks who don't want to check the forums all the time for war info:

Me too. Hopefully we'll be able to play longer due to the longer days. :D

Edit: i think we should have some sort of schedule. Here is a general idead of what I think we should do on that day:

11:00 AM - Team Deathmatch

12:00 PM - Capture the Flag

1:00 PM - Dart Sweep

1:15 PM - Lunch Break

1:40 PM - Trading

2:00 PM - Assault

3:00 PM - Dart Sweep

3:15 PM - Trading

4:10 PM - Pistol matches

4:50 PM - Whatever we feel like/dart sweep

5:00 PM - People will probably start leaving so just what ever we feel like.

@ Ben: You park by the curb. The park is fairly secluded, there isn't too much traffic, and there'll definitely be parking.

As for assault, it's a new game type that we're trying out. Basically you've got an offensive team, armed with pistols and unlimited life, trying to eliminate the defensive team, which we've situated on top of a playground / monkey gym, armed with mid-to-long range blasters, but with limited life (we've experimented, and right now we've settled on 2 lives). The offensive team has 3 minutes (we're still experimenting with the time) to complete their mission, while the defense is trying to hold out. Also, we're also mandating that the offensive team has to remain inside the playground area the entire time (therefore definitely within range of the defense, and must relay on cover, movement and teamwork to avoid enemy fire). Lastly, once hit, offensive players must step outside the playground and count to 10 before resuming play, while the defense count right where they're hit (of course, they only get to do it once, as the next hit means that they're out).

Believe it or not, of the 7-8 rounds or so that we played, the offensive team won all but ONE round. I think the blasters distinction is good, and that the offensive team has unlimited lives (but has to race against the clock) is good. We just have to continue to experiment regarding the actual time per round, as well as how many lives the defense should have.

I'm also working on a variant that wouldn't require a playground. We like this setup thus far because unlike CTF or Zombies, which requires constant movement and leans more on individual display, assault is more team-based while without having to be running all the time (especially for the defense). I felt we were getting quality time in, staying high-paced without wearing ourselves out as quickly.

There are lots of variants out there in the NIC. We're just trying to come up with a version that works for us.

Do people agree with my schedule? I am willing to print out a few copies for people. However, I will be a good 2 hours late due to a recent occurrence.

How far are we from the car to the game location and will we be moving from spot to spot frequently? I wanted to know so I won't pack too much.

There are picnic tables there for us to set up, and it's about 100 feet (?) from the side of the road (where you'll park) to the tables. It's a short walk.

It was totally awesome. 21 person assault was mind-blowingly Effeminate. Hopefully we can do this on a regular basis. Great war everyone.
