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 #10

Date: July 24

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
DEFINITE:
NOT COMING:
William Cann Memorial Park, Union City, California 94587


The general plan is to get something going once a month for any bay area nerfers.

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, the most important part of this thread if you haven't joined already:

Running around in a park wielding plastic toys is a great jetlag cure.

I'm 70% sure I can make it. Something may or may not come up on that day. I will make a post again later to confirm.

All ya'll have fun at 'Geddon.

Looks like I'm in. There is the possibility that I might need to borrow a primary from someone.

Ditto Jake. It was a good day. I crashed when I got home.

It was very nice for me to meet some of the new-er people that's been coming to BAFF, as well as watching Bob introduce foam flinging to those kids! I also thought that everybody did a pretty good job dart sweeping today.

Let's get working on our date(s) in August.

We've already talked about this, but it might be good to have some "target practice" games from like 100 feet out for blasters that simply can't be considered safe for normal skirmishes. Heck, we can even have a few guys (I'll be the first to volunteer) to wander far out in the middle of the field in a horizontal fashion as "moving targets" or something, while people like Gabe can launch from his modified Cobra at will from a safe enough distance. I think there can be some way where we can let the kids have their fun with those massively overpowered blasters (everybody loves range and power. That just can't be helped). We just need to facilitate it safely.

So you guys are going to whine about slingshot weights, but play in new games involving terribly overpowered blasters? This is just asking for trouble.

Part of the issue is that kids LIKE blasters that shoot 1092320349023 feet. And that's not limited to kids. There is no way we're going to SKIRMISH with those. But some of the kids don't necessarily care about skirmishing. They just want to be able to use these (what we consider to be) overpowered blasters that they've made / bought. That's why I specifically said target practice, where it will be a highly controlled setting, be it the range / distance of the shots, what kind of targets they'll be, to where the spectators will stand. That way, kids can fire the crap out of their modified Titans and Cobras and nobody will get hurt.
