When:
April 30, 2011
Show up at 9:30am. Games will start around 10:00. We’ll probably end around 3-5pm depending on people's exhaustion.

Where:
Colerain Elementary

Address:
Google Maps Link
499 E Weisheimer Rd.
Columbus, OH 43214

Rules:
- Eye protection is mandatory for all participants.
- Kids under the age of 13 must have their parent(s) on the field or in the parking lot for the entire duration of the war.
- Air blasters that originally fire a projectile larger than a micro dart must have their over pressure valves unmodified.
- Singled Titans are banned. Titans are allowed if they have a shotgun attachment with 3 or more barrels.
- The only shields that will be permitted are Manta Rays.
- Do not use any blasters painted all black. If you have a dark blaster, please avoid wearing camouflage clothing or too much tacti-cool gear.
- Big Blasts will be inspected thoroughly – Any modifications to the tank in order to expand it, or to the ORPV to reduce its affect on the air output will prevent the blaster from being used. Big Blasts already fire insanely hard guys; you don’t need more power. Be prepared to open these blasters in front of the hosts for inspection (don’t glue it shut – it will be banned)
- Any other blasters that are voted too powerful will be banned for the day.
- Blasters will only be banned due to safety/power issues, not because it dominates.

Dart Regulations:
- Felt pads are mandatory on all darts
- The weight under the felt pad is limited by weight, not size or style. You aren’t limited to washers.
- ¼” slingshot weights are banned
- I will be using 3/0 fishing weights under felt pads from McMaster. The 3/0 weights I’m using are about as heavy as two copper BBs. I won’t have a scale to weigh darts, but your dart weight must be lighter than a ¼” slingshot weight.
- It’s tough to define what weights are allowed because there will be safe exceptions to any rule, but we don’t want anything jutting out of the side of the darts or heavy enough to inflict excessive pain. If you’re trying to sneak around the rules, please know the hosts will still have final say and we’ll be banning anything that is too dangerous. If you’re unsure about your dart style, contact me BEFORE the war.

Game Types:
- 3:15
- DtC
- Blob
- Carpe Testiculum
- Multi-team 3:15

Other Information:
- Bring a bagged lunch or money to get lunch during a designated break.
- Be sure to bring enough darts to support yourself and your guests for the whole day
- Remember to bring water

I'll probably be there, my brother too. If we go, some of his suitemates may come as well. I'll talk to him about it and see who is interested.

Put me down as a maybe. If I'm there, put me down for SVTJr. coming, and I'll talk Kid_Flash down from the ledge too.

My "last" 4B will hopefully be ready for this war. It has a totally non-intentional < 1^3 inch expansion; I'll show you pics or open it, whatever, to show you what I mean. I relocated the OPRV for a front-pump job but oddly enough didn't want to expand it at all; it was an unfortunate necessary side-effect. We can chat over its "legality" whenever.

Other than that I'll not bring my Pulse Recon, unless people want to toy with it between rounds, or my supa dupa 4Bs.

My brother and I are making darts and preparing blasters. We'll both be there, +2 more sure, with a potential for a couple more.

We'll have a few new guys with us, so let's make this a big turn out so they'll want to come back

Doubleposting, I know. But I figure we can bump the thread up with a week to go.

1) Hooray for good-looking weather!
2) I may be +1 or two, depending on convincing older sister and another guy to try it. We'll see
3) I have a bunch of things I could bear to get rid of (2 Spy Gear Rocket Launchers, etc), pm if you're looking for something.

Ok, an update on my numbers. My brother and I, +5 more. Yup. We're going to have some new guys, so let's make this a good showing and have fun so they'll want to return! Invite your friends, let's make this awesome.

Is someone able to bring a core and buckets/balls? I can bring my core, though it's crappy.

I'll bring a few things for trade, but I would like to keep time between rounds fairly short, I would really like to leave a good impression of fun to help the new guys want to return.

I'll try to make a core before the war (rhyming like a brotha, yo). I'll also see if I can pick up some balls and find some buckets for the other game types.

I agree with the round changes, let's try to keep the games moving. Also, let's try to keep trading for before and after the war, or during the lunch break.

Coop I will be bringing my balls and buckets for carpe and my set of flags for CTF.
Is anyone bringing some flagging tape to distinguish teams?

Sounds good, man. Yes, I have flagging tape.

I've been emailed by a few people that haven't been validated to say they're coming. I can't really confirm how many are serious, so there is a potential for + 0-5 more attendees.

I built a core today, so we're set on everything. It may be windy tomorrow so let's hope for some shots that defy windless physics!

Aww, that's gonna make large ammo that much harder to shoot into the cores....oh well.

Also of note: I have some old mega stefans that aren't going to get used. Since they're larger and slower, can I keep them as is (domed with bb), or would you like me to slap some felt onto them?

May as well get some use out of them!

Please add felt to the tips. At close range, the hot glue will still be a pain.

Regarding large ammo into the core: This core may work without paper allowing slow ammo to enter. I may not work without paper, but we can find out.

Haha, no need to worry, they're toast. Just fired a few, and they're all cracking up on impact. Apparently, these are from much earlier in my Nerf "career" than I thought, and with horrible dart technique to boot. They're not making an appearance.

Great war! Thanks to everyone for coming out! Everyone maintained great attitudes the whole day which made it tons of fun.

I'm really happy about the conversion to felt tipped darts. Most darts stung enough to let me feel it, but not too much to the point where I had to be overly-cautious about running closer to the core or towards the flags. Well, it did hurt a lot when I got shot by Buff Daddy with his super leet ERTL shotgun in the neck while rushing the core, but that's to be expected from 15-20 feet (great shot by the way). Any other opinions on the felt-tipped darts?

Also, I'll be fixing the core to prevent bounce outs, make it more stable, and not require 10 minutes to set up. I made that in a short amount of time two nights ago just to get it up for the war. It will be nicer for next time.

How does June 11th for another Central Ohio work for people? Andrew and I thought it would be nice because some of us will be out of school about then, but it also may land right before finals for some schools. Thoughts?

I would go for the 11th, but we'll see who is actually open for that date first.

I kinda missed not having glue domes to shoot retarded distances, but it didn't matter too much. If anything, we had to actually run at each other and get closer.

Having lots of new people was also fun. The little guys were kinda bad at Defend the Core, but they'll learn.

Sounds good. Other Ohio guys are welcome to chime in here about the date.

Sounds great man, thanks a ton for bringing those glasses and recording!

Remember what I requested at the war? I'd like to chat over PMs but it appears your inbox is full.
