Also can't wait for some astounding video from venom's sunglasses to pop up.
Sadly, any footage recorded using those is all but unreadable. I found that the SD card I used yesterday doesn't have enough class to record video reliably. Really, it is a Class 2 card which doesn't transfer data at fast enough speeds to take pictures/video consistently. I've tested the glasses with my Class 4 card that I use in my phone and they work fine. I'm very disappointed that they didn't work, but now I know for next time. Makes me glad I still took some pictures with my regular camera:
Highlights and lowlights:
+First totally non-fail war in many months.
+13 people at the day's height.
+So many new faces.
+All of said new people were fairly impressive in both combat and with their mods and homemades.
-The pump slide breaking on my Rainbowpump a few rounds in. Damn thinwall PVC,
+Making my RBP into a Rainbowpull by shoving a screwdriver into the plunger rod.
+My +bow performing very well and not breaking.
+Stark managed to show up for one round.
-The Vets vs Noobs round taking FOREVER because people were hiding in the slides. I feel like this was a good exercise to show the new guys not only that the vets are a force to be reckoned with and also why we usually don't play deathmatch.
+Defend the core was easily the most fun and fair game. We'll have to play plenty of that this summer.
+Nobody winning capture the flag.
+Julian texting me to say he couldn't go, then texting me again 10 minutes later saying he could go.
+Eating shit multiple times but having fun in the process.
-Hopper kept exploding, something that has motivated me to make a version that won't explode.
-None of the footage from the video sunglasses turned out. Tis a dirty shame. There were wins and fails alike that will never be seen.
+The weird Greek lamps at Burger King.
+Some random kid who looked like Kip (Eh_Watt?) getting out of a car, looked at us oddly, got back in the car, and rode away.
+Nobody else was at the park other than a few frolfers who kept their distance.
-The parking lot was blocked by a huge wall of snow. Parking across the street was okay, though.
+All of the new guys showing up before 10 and being ready to nerf early on.
-The war ended kind of early. It figures, we actually got going at a decent time.
+Two of the guys' dads making hot dogs and a fire.
+Observing how things have changed over the years. MNSBW 2008 was my first war. This being the 4th anniversary of said war made me realize how much has happened since then. That war had a lot of young new guys just like this one. I was one of those new guys. Now, I've been going to wars longer than any of the people who were present. All of the former "Vets" are long gone (except Flaming Hilt who still nerfs here when he's back from college in WA, where he nerfs as well). There is much satisfaction I feel having stuck by this hobby for such a long time and all of the experiences I've had with it.
