Carakki from Nerf Revolution is hosting a war. The post is what follows.

All righty, folks, it's time for the first RSNO - RiverSide Nerf-Out. Let's get on to the details:

Date: August 7th (DATE SET).

Time: 10 AM to exhaustion or nighttime, whichever comes first. I imagine things will cool down between 4 and 6.

Location: NOT Freedom Park! Keeping in line with its name, RSNO will be held at 22nd Street Park on the Hillsborough River. The Google Maps/Mapquest address is 7801 North 22nd Street, Tampa, FL. Here's an aerial photo of the field:

The park is quite large, with a massive field dominating about two-thirds of its bulk.

The field area has a nice manhole-mound in the middle of it that could serve as a Defend the Core or Nodes point:

The northwestern border of the park is forested and holds small 'arena' pockets among the trees:

Clothing: This is Florida in the summer. It will be hot and it will be humid. Dress accordingly.

Guns:
Bring:
-A primary.
-A backup primary/secondary.
-A pistol. A pistol is defined as a spring-powered one-handed gun that must be reloaded and primed between shots. Speedloaders will not be allowed during pistol rounds.
Don't bring:
-Guns that shoot over 200 feet (for safety reasons).
-Anything liable to explode.

Darts: When we went out to test the location, we went in with a brand-new batch of 50 darts. We came out with 10. This field is massive and has long grass. I highly recommend marking your darts. Numerically, you should bring at least 100. I will be selling darts at the war itself.

Food: You can either bring a lunch or, if enough people are interested, we can pool our resources and get a few 'zas. Also, water falls into this category. Don't leave home without it. I will be selling bottles at the war.

Safety:
-Eye protection is mandatory for all players under the age of 18. If you are over 18, the choice is yours, but eye protection is highly recommended.
-No 'tack' or 'death' darts.
-No exposed weights on darts.
-No slingshot-weighted darts.

Money: I will be selling darts and water at the war. As mentioned above, we may pool our resources to order pizza. In addition, this will be a 'swap meet' of sorts (yes, Rogue, I'm stealing your term) at which people can buy, sell, and trade. Don't come unprepared.

I think that covers everything. Remember to note which date is good for you. I'll keep a running attendance list here:

Definites: (9)
Carakki
Bear
Ducky
Cuppa Steve
Rogue
Semperfi
yugi9653
Bruce(theshark)
Hawkshot

Maybes: (9)
Cuppa Joe
Anthrax(theterrorist)
Ultimate
Ducky's brother
Goose +1
Homa

BUMPING this for Carakki

The war is only a few days away, and the forecast calls for 106-110 degree heat index....so take needed percautions gentlemen.

Also, Carakki has decided to add a few rules to keep things fun and fair. From Carakki:

-Hopper clips are limited to 6 darts (however long that may be for you). This includes any darts already in the barrel.
-I don't care (yet) how long RSCBs are.
-For most rounds, only standard 6-dart N-Strike clips will be permitted. (Rogue, I'm mostly looking at you here.)
-There will be special rounds in which all clip restrictions will be lifted.
-Reverse-plunger blasters (HAMPs excluded) are exempt from all clip restrictions. (This is mostly aimed at Ducky and Cuppa Steve with their Raiders.)

All in all, a very fun time. The "New guys" proved themselves capable, dedicated, and eager to Nerf--A+++
The new venue was very different, and was an interesting change of pace. I was pleased to see generally good sportsmanship, and eagerness to have fun. I will see you guys in Augusta at Septembwar!---Rogue.

The first RSNO was a beast of a war, can't wait for the next one.

+ Meeting Carakki, Ducky, Semperfi and everyone else I'd never met
+ Beasting with my nitefinder
+ Carakki letting me use his loaners after my nitefinders broke
+ Pistol rounds and wingman rounds were hella fun
+ Making some good shots
+ The Angry Beavers
+ Alliances
+ Awesome new location
+ All around it was a great war

- Tree branch + face = not good
- Leaving early

I'm feeling better, hopefully it will heal fast. Like I said, it was an amazing war!
