Maybe it all depends what I'm doing that weekend.

Edit- If snow pants are required does this mean skinny jeans are banned?

Don't worry so much about what other people will allow. Throw your own wars and kick your friends' asses until they all want one.

The car is fixed and hopefully I'll have a new one by then, but the weather may dictate otherwise.

Now if it was racing it'd be a different story...

The war date is slowly creeping up on us. I just want to make sure people are still aware that this war is still going to be taken place.

I'll try, though Sunday wars are best held after noon for me. White foam will suck here depending on snowfall!

Saturdays are great assuming I can get out of work. Sundays I don't usually work, but it's hard ditching church for a nerf war (Yeah, my priorities are all messed up, I know).

That's a bad idea. Losing the squishiness kind of defeats the point of using marshmallows. Trust me when I say that they work fine without any treatment.

From my experience with marshmallows, they are less likely to explode when fired and tend to fly better. Could just let them dry out in the air though...

If you're going to allow dried out-hardened marshmallows, why not allow fresh potato darts. They would be much softer than dried or hardened marshmallows, and better for the environment!

Yeah, just bring your bags of marshmallows to the war, and open them there. The air dry sounds a ton safer than freeze drying, so please don't freeze dry them.

From my experience, they work just fine when fresh. And seriously, marshmallows aren't going to fly well period. And, our blasters fire them hard enough to sting as it is, so stale marshmallows may present a safety hazard.
