War is in two weeks.
A couple important notices:
NEW LOCATION. It is only 8 mi away from the current one so it’s not that big of a deal. It is now Brice Park.
I switched the park after I went park hunting with my cousins who live down there.
This new location features:
-Not many people
-Good parking lot
Here are some pictures I took:
The sand at the bottom is the parking lot.
Defend the core anyone?
Pavilion will be the meeting area.
As you can see it has a wide variety of terrain that is all very spread out in small “pockets” of play area. This could be good for objective-based games and it allows play in many directions instead of just back and forth.
-Eye protection is a must for everyone playing
-All guns must have an orange barrel tip and if they are painted a realistic color scheme colored tape must be put on the body of it
-Melee weapons are allowed, but they are discouraged. Just bring a good gun. Loaners will be available.
-Melee weapons can block shots only if they are being held at the time of the block and the area that did the blocking is less than 1.5” wide
-Gun hits count
-No guns are blanket banned as of now nor will be due to performance (at the start of the day). However if it shoots more than 160’ with your darts you will be asked not use it, and if it becomes too much of an advantage such that it inhibits the fun of others you will be asked to put it down as well. The only guns that will be banned outright are ones utilizing HPA tanks or powered compressors. All guns must use energy from the player to shoot and must be primed during the round.
No exposed brass barrels.
-Micro Stefans must have either a felt or hotglue tip and a washer or SINGLE bb weight. Make sure to mark your darts as well. If you want, we can “call” dart markings ahead of time so there is no mix-up come war day. I call orange dart butts on beige foam
-This is going to be a laid back war, so do not expect zero downtime. Also there will be a couple parents there as well as people who are attending their first war so just be cool and don’t curse a lot or get frustrated with it.
-Instead of barrel tapping, I want to try out “surrendering.” Here’s how it works: if you are really close to someone and don’t want to shoot them with your high powered gun, you can ask them to surrender. If they do, it counts as a hit without you shooting/ tapping them. If not, you are clear to shoot and they can’t complain if it hurts.
-If you need a loaner gun of any kind, contact me and I can hook you up with a gun.
-Bringing your own obstacles is encouraged.
-There is a food place about a mile down the road, but it is just easier if you bring food in a cooler.
-While you’re at it, put your darts in a cooler.
-We will start at 10:00 AM. Please try and get there on time.
-If you would like to exchange phone numbers in case you get lost, pm me.

I think that about covers it, make sure you bring everything that was stated in the last update and I’ll see ya there!
