Excuse me, but where is Wheaton park?


Wheaton, MD.

Google "Wheaton Park Maryland" for more info. The Montgomery County Park Service has a site with lots of pictures and stuff.

k if i can make a six hour drive but ill try my mom said she would but things happen

Your mom would drive you 6 hours just to play with nerf guns? My mom wouldn't drive me 30 minutes. Anyways, the drive is 3 and a half hours for me, and I don't think I can make it.

It was never originally planned for DC. The District of Columbia is notorious for being paranoid about guns. Their handgun ban is still in effect. I would never actually host a war in the District itself.

Wheaton, MD is literally minutes outside of DC. It's on the Metro.

Assuming that I found the right "Wheaton Regional Park" on Google, I should be able to make it to a war there-it's about half an hour from my house.

As for the date, any one of the aforementioned seem fine for me, but it's not certain.

If it's alright with folks I'm going to go ahead and schedule this one for the 12th. If anyone objects to the 12th, please let me know as soon as possible.

This exchange is pretty funny.

Anyway, I live in the area as well and I'm interested. This would be my first real Nerf war; I've previously only played in a small house with 5 friends, so I have a few questions.

1) How do you go about retrieving your darts afterwards?
2) Where can I read up on the standard rules one might expect (points, being hit, safety, etc.)


There is a general rule list in the Nerf Wars section. Everyone walks around doing a dart rake afterwards.

The 12th works for me. I will be a definite and possibly a few guests.

Edit: My attendance will also be based on whether the 'definite' list grows some. I'm not going to drive a few hours to play a few rounds of doubles. Can't wait though, let's make this happen.

Need more people.

Also what happened to everyone else who showed interest earlier? I realize it's not an indoors war but it's still the only war within 50 miles of the DMV for the foreseeable future.

How many people would there have to be for the war to actually be able to happen? I'm still checking with my parents to see if times/transportation will be ok.

M3 went well last year with 9, if I recall correctly. Same park, same weekend of the year, so ideally I'd like to have at the very least 8 confirmed.

Put me down as a maybe for the moment. I'll be more certain of whether I can attend closer to the war.

Also, we should make an email list for war announcements. It'd help a lot with making an approximate head count.

I was thinking about starting up a forum for nerfing around the DMV, maybe running it in conjunction with the nerf clubs at UMD and William & Mary. I heard Towson University also has a nerf club. I'd have to get in contact with some folks from those schools first.
