First ever Hyland Park war: be a member of history!
And I'm going to name this little Gem: Hyland Ruckus! Fuckus, or F'ing Ruckus, seemed too graphic.

DATE
Saturday September 4th 2010. That is 9/4/10.
9:00 AM – 4:00 then final dart sweep.
I will be there at 8:30 for good measure and will not leave till the field is clean.

LOCATION
Hyland Park. Bloomington, MN
Official site: http://www.threerive...-lake-park.aspx
Location Highlights:
- Lots of benches, multiple large buildings with restrooms and other amenities.
- Many fields for war but they are very spread out so we will likely remain near the staging ground.

ADDRESS
10145 Bush Lake Road
Bloomington, MN 55438

PM me for my cell number, the location is tucked away on winding roads and once you get there there are no less than 3 parking lots.

GAMES
IF YOU HAVE A GAME IDEA PM ME!!! I will hear out all ideas and help craft rules and stipulations so you can bring a fully-packaged and thought out game plan ready for use. This is how we get great rounds like Demon Lord’s territories game from SPANO ‘10.

2.5 – VIP vs VIP, or 2Presidents, or Hunt The One Guy One The Other Team.

3.5 – Vets Vs. Noobz: Deathmatch! DM is dead in the Midwest, but I’m calling it for the last round at my first hosted war.
4 – Sweepy Sweep!

• Offend the Core
- 5’ x 5’ MonsterCore will be used.
- Point gradient: I WANT lopsided in the favor of silliness!
a. Micros and megas = 1 point
b. Arrows, missiles, 4b rockets, sonic baz missiles, Maximize ammo, Max shot ammo = 25 points
c. Titan rockets, Ironmen = 75 points

• Carpe Testiculum
- 3 buckets, 15 balls all for the seizin’
- 20 min limit

• Capture the flag/Rescue the Princess

- 2-round vs. mode as alternative.

RULES
• Slug darts only
- I will have 500+ darts for myself and whoever, I have seen the joy a communal bin can bring.
- I will gladly sell you darts: they will fit well into cpvc.

• Blaster bans
- None, in fact PLEASE bring your crazy chimera steroid blasters.
- Don’t USE crazy chimera steroid blasters if you know you will be viewed a douche.

• Hits/kills
- Beaver's rules: no barrel taps, no melee, no shields. I’ll add no thrown objects.

• I will be pushing for little downtime between rounds: 10 min max!
- I will personally use tween round time for team selection and game set-up.
- Don’t think it’ll happen? Try me, you’ll get an ass full of disappointment.

I'll be there, naturally. We ought to spend a day driving around and checking out parks.

Also: you sound like you're half your age.

Well, I could curse more, exploit perceived reasons why other board members are stupid, and act like everyone else is my inferior. Or I could be more bland and devoid of character, not quite sure what route to take here…

If it makes you feel better, I spend 45+ hours a week on the phone being the consummate corporate professional. I gotz a headset and EVATHING!

I'm pretty excited for another west side war. My family's still working out when we're taking a trip up north to visit some other family members, and I won't know which date is better for me for a while yet. Hopefully I can make it though!

I will voice support of having it Minnetonka. I like only having to drive 15ish minutes. I like this idea quite a bit in fact.
Put me on-board as a strong maybe.
I've been out of the game for awhile; could someone tell me what I missed out on that caused the no barrel-taps and no shield rules?

Elf Gun, No friggin way! I will HELLA put you down as strong maybe.

The only thing more thrilling for me than a sneaky sword kill or a critical blocked shot is the insane rush to out-reload your opponent when you are 10 feet from eachother. Trust me, it adds a very distinct flavor of 'supertits' to the game.

Bummer, I so enjoyed the freaked look on people's face when I charged straight toward them as they struggled to reload their oversized over powered 'looooser'rifle. The visualization of the flight or flight mech as they scamper, then me sprinting in and tapping them on the back with a nf. Such joy.
I think that so long as the aspects of the game that were added by blocking with mantarays or sneaking up and ninja-ing others from behind are adequately replaced I won't miss um too much. We'll see :)

I'm leaning t'ward the 4th. Just saying, there are many maybes and perhaps this will help focus.

@veeta - I hope you come, you have like 75 arrows plus a grocery bag of funny ammo I traded you and I am quite serious about hight point value for big ammo in OTC.

@VenPants - Basset has been stricken and desecrated.

@eh-Kip - dude...dude.

@Beevmen - I will be walking through starring lake and mkta regional tomorrow, but I will plant the seed for the idea of a MN nerf park database today.

@Fixurslacks - Football is important, but we both know everyone is there to see the band. That, and I have a singled unplugged unturreted totally consentual 3K with your name on.

There's a slim chance I could make it to this if it is on the 4th, and absolutely no chance whatsoever if it is on the 18th.

I missed today's war, so I need to go to this one... I vote Hyland for sure. Staring Lake park is fine but it is really hilly just about everywhere.

I will make sure I write this date down, take time off work, etch it into my skin, whatever, I WILL be there this time...

I can't make it on the 4th unless you want to have a war most likely after 9 pm. The 18th is into the school year, so thus I actually would have a free saturday.

Anyone up for some sort of Nerfy warm up this weekend? Say, Highland or Langford? Mod some guns before hand, and just dick around in a park for a little bit?

Outside most likely. Snake convinced me to try having one, so I figured why not? That, and we won't have to make darts.

How about either before the 26th, or after the 6th of September? I don't get any free time during the fair.

Comrades: I have set the date and location: Sept 4th at Hyland Park.

Bustwalter A. Ninja: I’m sorry but this is the day that works best for me :P I beg forgiveness.

Trading thread up soon, but I did just get this in the mail…
