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.
-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.
-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.
-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:
