Landstricker, Sharvil, and I are currently in the process of planning out the specifics of the wars-such as location, hosts, rules, dates, etc. We were thinking of doing it on every 2nd or 3rd saturday, and possibly doing some weekday wars once summer really starts. For the first war, we were thinking of doing it @ Getty Park, since if we were to do it @ Beall (which is preferable), we would need the school's permission first. We were thinking of rotating/alternating the "host" (I say "'host'", since the host won't have to do much besides get location/rules enforced/set, and make sure everything runs smoothly, as they will be smallish wars, with mostly the same people each time), starting with Sharvil, and then going on to either Landstricker or I, and then whoever wants to/can.
The three of us have been debating the topic of dart restrictions, but, seeing as how you guys (othan than the 3 of us) will be the ones being hit by the darts, I thought I'd let you guys help in the decision-
As of now, we have decided that either a BB, 3/16"/7/32" ball, fishing weight, or washer (#6 or #8) will be OK under a felt pad. Gumdrops will also be OK (we haven't really discussed it, but, since it doesn't have much more weight than a BB dome dart, and uses no metal, it should be OK).
What we're debating is what we should allow underneath hot glue domes. BBs/aforementioned balls will definetely be OK (and slingshot weights will definetely NOT), but should fishing weights under domes be allowed? I, for one, like dome darts a lot, and I think that fishing weights are better than BB domes, since they have more accuracy/are easier to make. However, they hurt more than the rest, since they are heavier, and therefore travel faster/hit harder. What do you guys think? I personally think it should be ok (but I've only been to one war), but Sharvil and Landstricker don't.
