If I can convince my brother to drive up to college station and we could grab a ride with the TANGO guys, then I'm a definite maybe. My brother probably won't want to go though.

I'll let our people know, but there aren't many who are still in town and there are fewer who would put up with the drive. That being said, I'd definitely be willing to take you if you could get the ride to CS. I'm planning on leaving pretty early though (around 6-8 AM depending on when it starts), so keep that in mind.

Also, if you end up not getting a ride to CS, it might be possible for me to come down the the Houston area the Thursday before, and I could pick you up straight from there EARLY saturday morning (as it would be about a 6 hour drive from there), though I'd probably need an incentive (gas money) to do so.

If nothing else comes together, let me know and I'll see what I can do. Spring is pretty much directly between me and Bridgeport. At this point though, my attendance is not guaranteed, since I don't know my work schedule yet.

Because calling a nerfer a nerd is like calling water wet.

Uhh actually, I lied. I'll be selling about 100 2" white loghomestore slugs that are tight in cpvc and good in PETG, I'll also have about 50ish 1 3/4" black slugs. Don't know what kind of foam it is - it came with a blaster I bought from someone. I'll also have a bag of 32 hot glue dome stefans that came in the same deal. The glue dome stefans are less than perfect, but will be cheap.

I also have 7 or so wyes to sell.

I might as well post my wtb here as well.
-barrel break for cheap (internals can be broken as long as it still looks stock)
-Sawtooth/Electric Eel clips
-Stampede clips and Alpha Trooper drums

Update:

Right, war is tomorrow.

It will be 100 degrees out, so bring a lot of water and sunscreen.

One idea I had is to have a lunch break or something at 3ish, where we would pack up and get fast food or something. This would be 1) a lunch break, 2) a restroom break, and 3) a chance to get out of the sun/heat. Sounds good?

I was watching the news...

It is going to be 107 degrees in Bridgeport tomorrow.

107!!!

So, anybody having second thoughts? This is going to be bad...

Seriously, thats not even the heat index, so it is going to feel hotter then 107.

I think we need to reschedule.


Fuck it, we'll do it live!

BRING WATER AND SUNSCREEN!!!!!!

Pros:
-Meeting everybody
-Longstrike R3l performing way above expectations
-Best turnout at any war I've been to as well
-Big Salvo and sword kills
-Winning the first round of deathmatch with the crippled extremely nitefinder (3k pumped too much and wouldn't fire)
-Buying and trading for a lot of cool stuff
-The ice cream. Wing'd man, tell your mom we said thanks
-Being a one man team in wingman (the gametype) and being one of the last two people alive
-7777tx/chase went pretty much the entire war using a nitefinder and he did pretty well with it

Cons:
-It was hot, and the heat was definitely getting to everybody
-Almost every blaster besides the longstrike R3l that I brought (both extremely nitefinders, shot blast, even my previously super-reliable longshot) performing under my expectations or just flat out bad.
-the 4 hour one-way drive was killer. I can't imagine having to have gone another hour like snakerbot. He's a beast.
-Video came out meh instead of "awesome". Hopefully I'll be able to salvage a lot of it.

I'll try to have the video up by Monday night, but no promises.

Awesome, though I agree it could have gone better.

Hey, could you put the file for the video on mediafire or something? I wanna do some 1337 flash editing...
