Round 2 bitches!
Saturday, May 21th, 2010 - 12:00 PM - 7:00 or later
Arrive at no later than 11:45 AM. First round start at 12:00 PM.
County Highway 1 (W Fox Rd.)
What to bring:
-At least two primaries, one to use, and an extra if that one breaks.
-Darts (slugs or stock ammo only) Hot pink foam for sale before or at the war.
-A friend, or several.
-Eye Protection, if you're not wearing any, you don't play
-Lunch and water. We will not be taking a break to eat. Make sure you bring food to munch on, and/or eat before you show up.
-Proper attire. I don't want to see some douche bags showing up in camouflage or I will personally beat you down and tell you to leave. Dress appropriately.
What not to bring:
-Slingshot weighted darts, glue domes, unpadded ammunition, homemade darts weighing over 1.1 grams. Darts will be tested if needed.
-Pump plugged blasters with airtanks larger than a Mega Missile. You must have a working OPRV otherwise. I would field check these on yourself if I need to.
-Titans, Cobras, Jobars, Converted Super Soakers and their ilk will be explicitly banned.
-Anything else will be determined on a case-by-base basis determined by the host.
-Blasters that are painted black will be tossed into to the bonepile. And that means RFDGs, and PASs. Put some bright colored tape on them or paint them a different color. Extremely bright blasters will be encouraged.
-Kids who are ≤13 years old must have their parent(s) present the entire time they are participating.
-Short, fat dudes, that run like fairies, who go by the name of "Snake" and masturbate on airplanes.
-No Deathmatch (you won't have to sit out)
-Barrel tapping is not allowed.
-If you are being a douchebag I will ask you to leave.
-Please clean up after yourselves, we will be using someone's private land.
-Melee weapons will be allowed all gametypes except for Carpe and Defend the Core. Oversized melee shit will be banned. Use common sense, this is a Nerf war.
-Please refrain from yelling obscenities.
-Do not pick up or move mobstacles during a round.
Melee = 3 sq/ft
Single shot pistol, ranges < 50' - 2 sq/ft
Anything else, ranges < 50' - 1 sq/ft
Blasters shooting over 50' will not be allowed to use a shield.
Ammo larger than the equivalent of three micro darts will take out a person if it hits their shield, blaster, body, or melee weapon.
Shields can be made from whatever as long as it's soft; cardboard should be reinforced with duct tape.
BEFORE YOU LEAVE - Clean up all your shit and help pick up darts.
I don't want to lose the priviledge of nerfing at this location by leaving the place a mess. I'm going to bring garbage bags to set up near the staging area. Please be courteous.
If you're foreign to making slugs, Kane provided this short, but helpful guide.
Q: How do you make slugs?
A: There are a few relevant writeups I can (and eventually will) link to here, and the make varies. Here are some important basic guidelines:
1. If you use washers, use #6 washers (about 3/8" OD) or smaller. #8 and larger washers tend to expose their edges, even on well made darts. Even though this isn't supposed to be the striking surface, strange things can happen in the land of nerf, and you shouldn't assume that your darts will be flying straight when they hit.
2. If you use ball weights, use 7/32" or smaller. A #6 washer weighs about 0.6 grams, and that's a good target weight. BBs are fairly light, but if you have lower powered blasters they may actually work better. Larger weights than this promote the use of blasters that are far too dangerous to be safe, and probably compromise the durability of the dart as well.
3. Make sure your weight is completely covered. If you're using washers, that means make sure that you can't see the edges of the washer. If you're using steel balls, then make sure that you have substantial hot glue between the weight and the felt. This helps distribute the impact of the ball to a wider area, as felt is not the stiffest padding material.
4. Glue doesn't work on polyethylene. The foam is made of polyethylene. However, hot-glue is a molten mixture of polyethylene and related chemicals, so it will essentially weld itself to the foam, and it works very well. If you drill a pilot hole, then silicone glue seems to work very well with steel balls, and adds a fun bounciness to the dart as well as extra padding. Unfortunately, it takes forever to set, which makes it messy as hell.
