Planning for Apoc '11 has officially begun. First thing's first, foget what you know. Apoc is under new management this year, and lotsa' things are gonna change. But we'll get to that in a moment. Before we go any further, we need to select a date.

Apoc will be on August 6th

Now, I want to provide a little more information concerning the event for everyone to digest, but please, only respond regarding the dates.

If poppularity is any indication, this is the premier nerf even in the country every year, and this time around we want it to live up to all of it's promise. In order to ensure that we can pull this off, there will be minor and wholesale changes alike. A sample of what's coming this year:

- A firm round schedule and advanced sign up sheets to ensure everyone gets to enjoy every round and field we have to offer.
- In between round nerf activities to keep those of us who are either out or skiped a round plenty to do.
- More game types then any previous Apoc, run by people who've designed and/or perfected them.
- More rounds, period. Less Down time is a guarantee.
- Advanced details to better prepare you for foamy combat.

Unfortunately, there will also be a few more restrictions. We recently, for the first time, had interaction with the authorities at the park where apoc is held. In order to guarantee that such a large war is not interupted we're going to need a proper permit. In order to ensure that we recieve the permit and cover our own asses, the following restrictions will apply (we will clarify them at a later date):

- Age: As of now, no participants under 13 will be allowed. The age limit could be raised if we feel it's neccessary.
- Ammunition: No more .30 slingshot weights, that's for fucking sure. As of now I'm anticipating slug darts or anything fitting a predetermined set of chriteria will be mandated (soft tip, with a total weight of 1.1g or less is a possibility). Stock darts will likely be allowed regardles.

All of this is subject to change. I just wanted to be forthcoming up front with all the pertinant info I have.

Count me in on any date except August 6. Possible +1 or +2, but I'm definite. Also, let me know if anybody near me who can pay gas wants or needs to carpool.

August 6th is probably the only one I can make, and that's only if I can get a ride up with Cranky or someone else from the DMV.

Any date works for me, the 23rd and the 6th would be preferable, seeing as they're after pay weeks and I'll have more disposable cash to blow on project blasters.

I'm in china the 23 and 30, but the 6th would work great. I'm good for the weekend after that as well. Ive never missed an apoc since I've started nerfing, and don't plan on making this the first one. I hope the dates will work out for everyone as one of the weeks in august.

Damn right you are. And I like the idea of a late July Apoc.

Actually, Dom I graduate on the 6th so that would be a no go for me, but any other date is perfectly acceptable although the 13th would be the best for me personally.

On the other hand, the guy who posted before me used the word 'fuck' a lot so he probably knows what he's talking about.

After attending APOC in 2009, I would love to be able to make it back to another! August 6 would be a go for me and some of my fellow WV comrades. I would do what I could to make the other dates though if that is the only time it could be. Hope to see you all again soon!

To the best of my knowledge, all 4 days work for me and my brother. He'll turn 13 a week or so before the earliest date, and I'm over that limit by a couple of years, so it's all good.

Being a FNG, what are the standard gun rules for APOC? I have a Triple Shot, some antique blaster from before time itself. It can load single suction darts, and I dunno if it's overpowered or what.

Also, if eye protection is required, do standard polycarb frames count? Or are safety goggles a must-have?

Thanks for the help, and I hope to see you all there!

I am by no means an authority on this war, but this will be my 4th Apoc and hundredth or so war with Vacc and this group of Jersey nerfers. The dart restrictions are there so we don't need as much restriction on blasters. Most (all?) of us use homemades as primaries that will shoot well over 100' on average; your triple shot will be fine. The restrictions will likely be on homemade airguns, singled cobras and jobars (toilet cleaners) and maybe singled titans (including "chimeras").

Polycarb safety glasses have historically been fine. Shatter resistant is good, OSHA/ANSI safety rated is better. Several people have gone for full chemical goggles, others have opted for sunglasses, and a few of those sunglasses have gotten broken.

Edit: any date works for me.
