I have posted this on other forums to maximize the amount of players.

Attendence:

Attending: (10 + X)

-Mehku (Host) +1
-Hummer (Host) +2-3
-louiec3 + 1-X
-Range Eclipse
-Demon Lord
-Maudood

Maybes: (9)

-NFmaster + 1 or 2
-beckamb26
-Carbon
-Beaver
-Zorn
-Atomatron
-Kane

Total: 19 + X

What to bring:

- At least one primary.
- At least 1 pistol for the pistol rounds.
- Melee Weapon. Bring one and either Hummer and I will deem if it is safe.
- Enough ammo ( About 125-200 darts for your primary, and about 100 darts for your sidearm(s))
- Eye protection is mandatory for players under the age of 18.
- A bag lunch with plenty of water or some other type of drink. Don't bring perishable foods. You have been warned.
- Some money for buying/ selling, etc.
- Appropriate clothing.
- Mobstacles. If you have them, bring them.
- An appropriate shield (We are using RyanMcnumber's rules):

Shield Rules

While wielding a melee weapon you are limited to 3 sq/ft of shields.

Single shot pistol with ranges <50' - 2 sq/ft of shields

Anything else with ranges <50' - 1 sq/ft of shields.


Ammunition larger than three micro darts, (balls, missiles, arrows, etc.) will break shields and count as a hit. Shotgun blasts do not count as breaking shields. It's just too hard to enforce.


What not to bring:

- Slingshot ammo weighted stefans- These can cause injuries and are unnecessary; 3/0 Fishing Weight stefans are the heaviest stefans allowed.
- Singled and Plugged Titans; Plugged Titans must be shotgunned to at least three barrels
- Big Blasts that are both singled and plugged.
- LBBs
- National Geographic Guns
- Signal Launchers
- Homemades will be allowed if deemed safe by 1 of the 2 hosts.
- Anything painted entirely black, silver, or any form of camouflage.

Games:

10:00 AM - Team Deathmatch

10:30 AM - Multi-Team Deathmatch

11:00 AM - Capture the Flag

11:30 AM - Multi-Flag Capture the Flag

12:00 PM - Dart Sweep

12:15 PM - Lunch Break

12:30 PM - Assault

1:00 PM Zombie Round

1:45 PM - Pistol Match

2:15 PM - Dart Sweep

2:30 PM - Defend the Core

3:00 PM - Team Powerball

3:30 PM - Free Slot

4:00 PM - End of the War / Group Photo / Trading


Relevent Information:

- Starting time is 10:00 AM and ending time is 4:00 PM.
- Lunch will take place at 12:15 PM on the war site. You must bring your own lunch, and don't take easily perishable foods.
- About crappy darts: PLEASE pick up mangled/ bad stefans and toss them in the bad dart box that will be provided. These can cause serious personal injuries if fired at someone.
- We will be following the West Coast standards laid forth in Badger's etiquette thread (stickied, please read it).
- Another thing, please try not to curse loudly. Little kids might be around, and you might piss off parents.
- Don't be afraid to ask questions! If you have a question, fire away!
- Anybody is welcome to attend, including family and friends. Said people must be 13 years of age or older.
- If any guns have any sharp or pointy objects on it, try and duct tape it down. There is really no reason why you should, anyway.
- If you are going to barrel tap with a brass barrel, make sure that there is a PVC sheath over it.
- If a gun is painted completely black, silver, or camo, you need to wrap orange electrical tape around the barrel if you want to use it. No exceptions.
- Oh, about bathrooms..just water a fuckin' tree. The toilet facilities should be open, however.

Below are some pictures of the park:

Ugh, already we have to change the location because the people who run the park are a bunch of big nasty penis heads.

We need a reservation starting May 1st - October 31st. We are in the process of acquiring a new location.

What does it take to get a reservation? That park is a good location, and it would be worth pursuing.

It takes $75, and I'm unsure if the park staff would let us host if we played in a time when people might be in the park beyond the daily walkers. Mehku has talked to them before and he did not get a favorable result apparently.

EDIT:I'll take photos of the play area tomorrow hopefully

Could we get some ground pictures of the place? Overview shows somewhat-promising trees.

It's not as ideal as greenfield park, but it's the best I can find that won't need a reservation.

Well I'm bringing 3 friends for sure unless they have unforeseen events.
I am also bringing a lot of guns I don't use/need/want anymore, and there will also be some of my darts for sale.
They will be quite cheap I won't bother listing them, but what I would like to obtain are arrows, longshots, and cash.

I will also just buy stock/lightly modded longshots off people.

Ok, I have the permit in my hands now, and there is a slight change, we're in the EAST park of the park, as someone has the west side for thier own purposes. This means our battleground will actually be better, but close parking will have to be on West Coachlight drive. It will be just fine if you park in the parking lot, it will just take a longer hike for your necessities.

(The picture on the first page shows the west side of the park)

If you havn't read the "Overkill" thread yet, you're only hurting yourself

If anyone has 3/16 thick polycarbonate or aluminum I will buy some off of you. I need about a 4in square. I would be willing to pay up to $5 for it.

Weather report:

High: 49 degrees
Low: 39 degrees

Feels like: 37 degrees

Wind: From NW at 21 mph

Max. Humidity: 60%
Precipitation: 30%

Notes:
We will experience AM showers until 12:00 PM. There is a slight possibility of having a light film of snow on the ground (WTF!).

Wear shitty shoes tomorrow, as it will be muddy. Bring hats, gloves, coats, and whatever else to keep yourself warm. Bring blankets just in case you need to put your things on the ground.

I'll see you guys on the battlefield.

Screw Life Carbon. I was going to borrow the Snap-rifle so you could see it.

You're on a nerf forum you shouldn't have a life.

Edit- Recap

Quote of the war-"I took the pants off my toaster, so it would fit other people."- The Toaster Kid

Awesome war overall. I wished that I could've stayed for the last hour, but I had to be nice to my friends.

+Demon Lord changing the weather...
+Arrowstorms diddle. It was so much fun running around with it, and using arrows.
+Meeting some new nerfers.
+My longshot still not breaking after 3 wars, and no sign of damage.
+Getting rid of a lot of guns I didn't need or want.
+Zombies always rule.
+Nothing breaking.
+First round of siege was awesome.

-Powerball turned into a firefight.
-The weather was against us for a bit.
-My camera died even though I put fresh batteries in the night before.

I took two pictures before the camera died.

Well, all in all it was a very interesting war.

Pros:

-Meeting new people
-Trying out a new area
-Getting a lot of cool stuff
-Zombie round was awesome
-+Bow was held up nice

Cons:

-THE. WEATHER.
-A lot of the newer nerfers took forever to get going and slowed down the war
-Powerball sucks
-Some rounds dragged on and on....
-Forcing to end early because of the weather
-Not using the megahamp

----------------

I felt that the last war was much better. I honestly felt that after the lunch break, things started to slow down and become boring. I feel slightly disappointed in how this war turned out; hopefully next time we will try more objective-based rounds. What do you guys think?

On another note, during the summer months I will be accepting an internship with my dad down in Florida. If there is anyone who feels that they want to take my place as a MANO co-host during the summer months, please feel free to contact Hummer. I will resume hosting in fall.
