Any way you could update the first post Dizzy with the final date, time, place, attendees? That would really help in attracting more people as well as convincing the ones on the fence to be definites...


Will do on Thursday. Kinda swamped with exams right now.

I'm a maybe at the moment. Once I figure out how to get to the Metro station from where I'll be living in Gaithersburg this summer, I'll probably be a definite.

I will not have any Nerf guns with me because I'll be living in a hotel this summer, so I'd appreciate if I could borrow a Nerf gun or two.

I am also a maybe at the moment. It all depends on when we are leaving for ocean city. I got a couple extra guns if anyone needs to borrow one.

Doom, I didn't know you were going to be living in gaithersburg! Thats awesome. You should look into the metro bus routes. I live near the washingtonian center and can think of four different bus routes that would get me there in a pinch.

As of now, I am an 80% definite...I'll most likely be there, unless something comes up or my parents can't give me a ride.

Bummer, Phree. I will make sure my Atom Blaster does double-duty for you.

Weather-wise there is a 40% chance of showers and Thunderstorms. If that chance doesn't go below 30 by Thursday, I might have to call it off or push it back a week to make sure anyone making the trip doesn't drive all the way there to find the field turned into a giant puddle.

Sorry, I probably can't attend. I need to remove all the stuff I left at the house I lived in my senior year and that day's the one that works best for my parents.

But I'll be up for most anything on the weekends this summer. I'm going to get my bike so I can ride it to the Shady Grove Metro station as necessary. The hotel I'm living at for the moment (NIST pays for it; it's business class) also has a shuttle service anywhere within 5 miles, so I can take that too.

I'm pushing this war back a week to June 4th. The chance of thunderstorms is a bit too high for my liking on the 28th.

I'm pretty much a definite for now, but personally, I don't think that a 3-4 person war (Dizzy, Sharvil, posible Landstricker, and me) would be very fun. Hoperfully more people can come, or others can bring guests.

If I do end up going, I'll be looking for a stock (or somewhat stock, at least) sawtooth and/or any other fun/vintage/good blasters (ie. EaB?) I will also be looking to buy/trade for a
-stock AT3K
-some felt tips
-some PETG (as much as possible)
-a wye
-A hornet pump
-Airzone dart shooter (the thing used to make the Octoshot)
-Anything else you may want to get rid of-just PM me with offers, I'm open to a lot.
Please PM me with any offers/deals.

EDIT: Just put down a deal with Landstricker. I'm still looking for as much PETG as possible, and a sawtooth/EaB!
