Since it seems no info has come up for Spring DCNO, and since M3 went so well, I figured I might as well host another one. Maryland May Mayhem, I guess?

When:
May 22, 2010
10 AM til 3 PM

Where:
General Getty Neighborhood Park
10000 Woodland Dr.
Wheaton, MD, 20902
More info here

It's right off of Georgia Avenue, walking distance from the Forest Glen Metro. The Q2, Q4, Y7, and Y8 buses stop right in front of the park on the Georgia Avenue side. This park is smaller than Wheaton Regional, but should be far less crowded.

Rules:
Pretty much the same as the first M3, so I'll just paste it here.

- No singled Titans, SM5Ks, Ultimators, XXL Bazookas, Jobars, or Cobras.
- No singled and plugged 4Bs, LBBs, SGSLs, Nat Geo guns, Roto Rockets, etc.
- No homemade air blasters or homemade air tanks.
- No exposed brass or aluminum barrels.
^^^ These are very important, as they are all for the safety of the players. Also if I feel anything else is a safety issue, I reserve the right to disallow it.

- Bring at least one "primary" and one sping-powered pistol. You might want to bring back-ups in the event something breaks.
- There may be some crazy rules in effect for several rounds, so bring some out-of-the-ordinary blasters if you can. Ballguns, stock missiles, arrows, megas, whatever.
- Barrel taps only count if the blaster is primed and loaded. Melee weapons count as barrel taps.
- Manta Ray shields (stock or fabricated), Crossfire shields, and Laser Fang wings count as shields. (Also if you can prove that Nerf intended for any other product to be used as a shield, it will be allowed as a shield.) Anything else will be counted as a hit. Blaster hits count as hits as well.

- Don't even bother showing up wearing camouflage and wielding blasters painted all black. You will be promptly asked to leave.
- Don't be a dick. Keep profanity to an absolute minimum, and throw your trash out. Really, just use common sense. Anyone showing signs of dickery will be promptly asked to leave.

Extra Stuff:
M3 was awesome because nobody took it very seriously and everyone was just there for fun. Again I strongly encourage attendees to bring "out-of-the-ordinary" blasters for a couple of the later rounds during the day, because the last two rounds at M3 were hilarious.

I'm a definite. I'll see whoever else I can drag along, though I can't make any promises.

Question:

Would anyone be opposed if I moved the war forward a week to the 22nd?

I am just a maybe as well, though if I do end up coming, I will bring at least 2 guests. But I need to see what kind of work I will have to miss, as well as who wants to split the cost of gas with me haha.

And to directly answer your question, either week is fine with me Dizz :)

The 22nd is okay. Any time from May 22nd until August is okay for me.

Changed to the 22nd.

Off topic: since Groove is on hiatus, does this count as the de-facto DCNO substitute? If it looks like the war will have more than 12 people or so I might look into changing the location to someplace a bit larger.

I'm sure we'll have more than enough primaries for you to borrow, so come either way! :)

Oh man, we gotta cancel it or move it back week now. It won't be the same without you. D:

Ahh, the unavoidable schedule conflicts.

One person can't make it for the 22nd, one person can't make it for the 29th.

Coin flip?

No no, don't schedule around me. That's just silly. Honestly, I plan on attending at least 4 or 5 wars this summer up there with you guys so no worries.

If it matters, I might not be able to make the 29th, I don't know yet. The 22nd is fine.

Alright, we're sticking with the 22nd.

Bring a bag lunch. The closest place to get food is a nice little hike down Georgia Avenue, which I wouldn't recommend trying to make on foot.

Sure, why not? We could find some use for them if we get a surprise rain shower like we had last year at SuperNoVA.

It was so bad darts were floating over the ground.

Ok, I'll baptize them tomorrow with our HCC meet, and make sure the bugs are out.
