Where: Langford Middle School, Augusta GA.
When: September 11th, 11 AM.
Hosts: Rork and Zax
Who: Rork, Zax, Ben (?), Rogue...a veritable pantheon of dudes who are gonna shred face.
What to Bring: Guns. Darts. more Darts. Water.
What Not to Bring: Heavy Darts. Slugs and single BBs only. Slug darts must be weighted with a single #8 steel washer, as the good Lord intended. Hoppers will be limited to 6 inches in length. Chime in. Don't bring any fucking death cannons, because we will look upon you with scorn.
Bring your game face, a good attitude, and a buddy.

Soccerbeast+1-2

Krazykade+3

RAFFLE STUFF!

1 AT2K (from Nerkum)
1 box of PopTarts (from...well...PopTart)

Tentative Round Schedule:

Start off with a FFA to see where people are at, skill-wise and everything.

Mentor round. This is the direct result of a conversation I had with Chicken Basically, we're gonna have quite a few newbies at this war. So we're gonna do a round of Deathmatch consisting of 3-4 person teams, but instead of choosing teams on a top-down ranked basis ("Quick! Get the big guys/your friends/people who post a lot !"), we're gonna structure teams on the basis of putting a newbie with a vet or 2, to help them learn and make sure they're competing--not just staying huddled up with their buddies while the experienced players shred each other with hoppers. This round is all about relaxing and getting into the rhythm of the game, unlike...

2-team Deathmatch.

If we have time, a pistol round. (The pistol round will happen, but it could be before or after lunch.)

Dart Sweep.

Lunch. I would prefer to avoid the whole "people leaving for 45 minutes" thing, because lunch is gonna be short, and you should be thinking light, anyway. It's gonna be wicked hot. After enough people finish eating, we'll go straight to the

RAFFLE! Free stuff ftw.

Once that's over with, I will be explaining the rules/setup for...

Carpe Testiculum! Zaxby's is threatening to bitch out on this one. We'll see. But it should be highly enjoyable. This will be a timed round, lasting 20 minutes. If people like it, we can run it again later.

We'll play a bunch of rounds of Deathmatch, in various team sizes/combinations. Prolly another FFA as well. Basically, we'll be deciding round by round. Feel free to make suggestions, but we're pretty unlikely to stray away from the meat and potatoes games. And for God's sake, don't ask for a gimmick round. "Gimmicks" include zombies, etc., etc.

We'll finish the day out with a round of primaries gunslinger. Followed by...

Another Dart Sweep.

And a Big-Ass Nerf Swap Meet. Bring moneys, y'all. I'm liquidating a bunch of my collection, so look forward to a Yaris packed with goodies. That is all.

I'm a likely maybe.[sarcasm] I need to shoot rork pointblank with something again [endsarcasm].

Edit: if Zax still has only an NF by this time I have some stuff he can use.
Edit2: When you say #8 washers only, what about #6 washers?

Hell yeah! We are IN!

Two things:
-Why 11 AM? We need to start earlier. Southeastern wars don't usually start on time, for some reason.
-What's the difference between 8 and 6 washers? I have no idea what I'm using.

We can start earlier if you like chicken. I will be at the field about 9:30 so if anyone else if there and wants to start... then we shall.

I'm not going to this war, but #8 and #6 are indicators of the bolt size these washers are meant for. A #6 has a 0.16" ID, and a #8 has a 0.18" ID. In another site, we measured 100 of each: 100 McMaster #8s has appx 64g mass, while 100 McMaster #6s has appx 52g.

More mass = more range, but also more potential for excessive damage at close range.

Mind you, washer mass will vary with thickness and manufacturer, and these are not subject to quality control with regards to mass, so your yardage will vary.

Also, please note the sample size is -one-, which is pretty unreliable. I just gathered 100 #8s and put them on a cooking scale with 1g granularity. Take the exact numbers with a grain of salt, but rork's intent is the same - keep the darts light.

I simply meant that I don't want people nesting a weight under their washer and calling it a slug dart. As long as the washer is covered by felt, it's all good.

I remember the Augusta war last year. I told myself "Man I have got to go to that by next year." I've been preparing ever since. Seriously cannot wait. I will definatly make this unless something happens.

EDIT: Will there be a cake? ^_^

If you have ever been to a southern war... We ALWAYS spend alot of time just shooting the shit between rounds so I am sure you will have lots of time for selling.

We might be able to take you, but if we stay after the war for whatever reason, we plan on staying the night. Just saying.

Bumping this thread back up.

Are we allowing 9-round RSCB's at this war/in the Southeast in general? I need to know before my dad goes crazy with his new primary.

My opinion is no more than four. Otherwise I forsee long range standoffs which are quite boring for a war.

I'm fine with whatever for RSCBS. Hoppers can get a bit ridiculous, but we've used footlong RSCBs on BBBBs before with no problems. Also, if Rogue brings that damn drum mag, I'll lift ALL clip restrictions for a round :D

My dad's also bringing his still camera. All of you should know that means good pictures.

And I have a small red video camera that I taped to my gun before. I'm gonna do it again for certain rounds.
