Don't worry so much about what other people will allow. Throw your own wars and kick your friends' asses until they all want one.

Also, please be aware that there are no restrooms at the war site. Go before you get there, and go during lunch. You have been warned!

I'm a "maybe". I'll be riding with Hipponator if he can make it.

EDIT: Then I'm confirmed.

On the other hand, the guy who posted before me used the word 'fuck' a lot so he probably knows what he's talking about.

Barring something unforeseen, I'll be there.

Me + Coop + my bro for sure, maybe one more

I'm back at least to a solid maybe. I'm in the process of trying to put myself on extra shifts during the actual move-in days for freshman and returning students so I won't have to work Saturday (or at least until evening). I'll let you know if things get finalized, but I'm at least in a better position to go than I was.

We are now 1 week out from the war. All of the details seem to be coming together well, and the list of confirmed and possible attendees keeps growing strong. (I'm not even listing the FaceBook "maybes" here!) If you plan on coming, but you haven't said as much, please do. If you are on the maybe list, but you know your are coming, again please speak up! (You can still come if you don't, but we want to have a good idea of how many people may be coming if possible.) Right now, Weather.com is calling for sunshine and a high in the low 80's - sounds like a great day for Nerfing!

Don't forget that there will be free Nerf blasters handed out on a first-come, first-served basis at the beginning of the war, so make sure you get there on time to get your hands on one! If you don't, your chances are still good, however, as every half-hour we will be giving another Nerf blaster away in a random drawing.

If you still have any lingering questions, get them asked. If you haven't read up on the rules or game-types, please make sure you do that. If you still have some finishing touches to put on some mods, get cracking. The clock is ticking...!

Glad to hear it. If nothing else, this should prove to be a BIG war - confirmed/possible attendance is fairly high. Hopefully the FUN level will be high as well!

Back to a maybe, my work schedule changed and I have to close the night before the war. Which means I won't get off of work until 4 am, so unless I can find some to ride with I'm out.

Ambience I have a couple of questions for you.
1. When are you going to be arriving as I don't want to get their to early.
2. How long is the lunch break going to be.
Thanks

1) I will be there by 9:30 at the latest, though I will probably be there a little earlier. My co-host is planning on being there some time around 9:15.

2) Lunch will probably be at least 45 minutes - I like to have time to digest, and my wife and kids are likely to make an appearance around lunch time.



(As an aside, I will be providing maps to various local fast food places, all within a 10 minute drive from the war location, some even closer. If you want to go out for lunch, you should have plenty of time to get there, eat and get back.)

Now that's some attention to detail when hosting a war! Awesome.

We're really hyped up for tomorrow, looks like it's going to be a great day. We hope to be rolling in at ten, or a little before. It all depends on how well we're able to get moving in the morning.

Things are worked out for the move-in schedule, so I am officially confirmed! I'll see who else I can snag p here at school.

Also, would anyone happen to have either 4B's or At2K's that they would be willing to part with for a reasonable price? Some of the guys over in Ontario are looking for them, and I've volunteered to bring some blasters over at cost if I can find them.

A bit of a late request, but I didn't know if I could drive down until now, and we didn't want to pay extra for shipping.

You haven't seen how slow I eat. It's depressing.

My brother and I will be there with Coop, looks to be a great war. Just want to make sure, is 4501 Vance Avenue, Fort Wayne, IN the correct address? (I want to be sure googlemaps pulled the right address).

Also, Ryan, are you still coming with community darts? What barrel material do they fit? (I think I've read cpvc, but I want to be prepared).

Should be awesome, can't wait.

Yes, that is the correct address.

Last I heard, Ryan was still coming. His darts fit pretty well in my CPVC, is just a tad tight (but works) in 17/32" brass, and fits great in PETG for my Airguns (I got my PETG from Ryan).

Quick question: Pistol Splats are not allowed in pistol only rounds, correct? just thought I'd make sure about that.

I would assume not; I have never seen a Pistol Splat modded and hitting under 50'. Heck, it's pushing 50 with stock darts, the one plausible scenario of it being allowed.
