NOTE: **Yes, I know that there is already a DCNF thread. However, because Sharvil is no longer hosting (and I am), I thought creating a new thread would be appropriate, since then I can edit the OP and such**

DCNF will be a monthly/bi-monthly/whenever possible war in the DMV area, meant to keep DMV Nerf active. DCNF's purpose is similar to that of BAFF's, except it's on the East coast! The first DCNF will be in July.

Date:
July 16th and 23rd (there will be 2 wars, one on each weekend)

Time: 10:20 AM SHARP will be when we start the war, untill whenever we feel like ending.
Please, if possible get there a bit( 10-15 mins.) earlier,if you think one/more of your blasters will be subject to range testing/ban

Trading times:
We will most likely have some trading time from 10:00 till when we actually start playing, and then trading time in between some rounds, during lunch, after lunch, and whenever you guys want to.


Host(s):
I will be hosting the first DCNF on the 16th, with Phree Agent as my co-host. Sharvil ill be hosting the 2nd one on the 23rd.

Location:
-Beall Elementary, Rockville, MD. GOOGLE IT!

Time:
-10 AM until whenever we feel like ending

Rules:
-No JOBARs, No Cobras, no singled Titans, no singled plugged-pump airguns designed to shoot anything larger than a Mega dart. (If you are unsure about whether your blaster fits this description, bring a back-up just in case.)
-No exposed metal barrels
-No blasters painted flat black
-No dressing up in camouflage
-Eye protection is manditory, I don't care how old you are
-Other blasters will be handled on a case-by-case basis(INCLUDING HOMEMADE AIRGUNS)
-Doomsayers are allowed
-If your blaster is more than 75 percent grey of black, please use orange tape on it.
-Super soakers ARE allowed, but will be dealt with/banned on a case-by-case basis.
-It is OK if people under 13 attend-they just HAVE TO have parents in the parking lot/in the field/watching the WHOLE TIME.

Guidelines to non-douche-ness: MUST READ!-We are using Beall's space for this war, and we DO NOT wanna get kicked out or get the cops called by the school!
-please keep profanity and vulgar symbols/actions to a bare minimum
-please keep loud yelling to a minimum too; there are houses nearby, and we wouldn't wanna disturb the school's environment with loud noises.
-PICK UP ALL TRASH that you leave, whether it is from lunch or a blaster. If you are seen leaving too much trash, you may not be invited to the next DCNF; the hosts/other attendees are NOT here to be your maids.
-try to pick up all darts during dart sweeps/lunch; we don't wanna leave too many darts on their field (it's pretty much the same as litter to them)

-If you repeatedly act violate these rules throughout the day, you may be asked to sit rounds out, or to leave/not come back to DCNF wars...let's make this a fun war for everybody, and a non-disturbing war for the school! Afterall, we're there to have fun, right?

Dart Restrictions:
-Nothing heavier than a 3/16" steel ball bearing under a hot glue dome. In other words, BBs, 3/16" balls, and anything lighter than a 3/16" ball fishing weight are allowed under a dome. Washers under hot glue domes, no matter the size, are banned.
-Fishing weights and anything lighter are allowed under a felt pad, or at least a 2mm craft foam padding.

What to bring:
-WATER! For YOUR SAKE!
-A lunch, packed or pre-bought. There aren't many places to get food nearby.
-2-3 primaries.(Please bring more than one, since there is a large chance that it will break/fail during the day, or you will just hate it in the field/get bored of it)
-200+ darts
-A pistol or two-we will be having pistol rounds
-Fun ammo- rockets, missiles, megas, mongos, balls, etc.
-Stuff to trade/money to buy stuff. We will have trading time.
-Stock ammo, if your manly enough to use it. :P
-Bring some melee stuff-swords, knives, etc, just for fun.

What not to bring:
-Alchohol or drugs
-Real firearms
-Camo
-Ghillie suits
-Flat black blasters
-Un-allowed darts
-Death darts

Shields:
-Manta Rays and Laser Fang wings only.

Melee:
-Melee hits count as barrel "taps". If your melee weapon gets shot it counts as a blaster hit.

Lunch:
-Pack one. There are places to eat within driving distance, not really walking distance.

Match Types:
-Deathmatch (3-15, 5-20, etc.)
-Not Deathmatch (will figure out what once I get a better idea of who will be attending)
-CTF?
-Pistol only rounds
-Whatever else we want to play


If we have less then 3 people attending a war, we can reschedule it or cancel it if needed.

Please comment saying whether or not you can go; and whether or not you can bring guests, on either one of the dates.

We're split up in dates right now...
I'll edit the first post-we'll have to get more people confirmed towards one date before we make the decision. However, I'd advise everyone who believes they can make it to either date to start preparing-darts, blasters, trades, etc., so that, even if the war ends up being on the 16th (3 weeks away-not too close, but not too far), you'll be ready, and won't have so much of a crunch time.

EDIT: Do you guys wanna start an email list or IRC chatroom? It may make it easier for decisions like dates and stuff.

I can't confirm anything for either the 16th or 23rd. The weekend of the 15th is when I'll be moving out of my apartment in Richmond.

GREAT! C'mon, people! We still need more definites to be set on either date!

Also, I need a volunteer (preferrebely someone experienced) to host with me.

EDIT: Updated the dart rules, as well as the attendees list, so it's more clear.

Sorry for the double post, but I thought it would be appropriate, since I"m posting info that everyone needs to see.
I've added some pics in the OP of the location/a diagram/map

Ok, I'm gonna go ahead and make the war on the 16th, since, even if Dizzy can't make it to the 16th, we'd still have 6 people (as of now), which is the amount we would have, if Dizzy CAN MAKE IT on the 23rd, and we have it on the 23rd.

I still need someone to host with me! VOLUNTEER! Landstricker? Phree?Aftershock?
Also, if possible, please bring guests! We need more people!


Now go and make darts, people!

Sure I can be co-host with you, but I'm only going to come at 12:00.
And for darts, if people need darts, I could sell some to you at the war.

Does anyone have anything they would like to sell at the war? I'm open to a lot, so just PM me with offers...
I'll be looking for some sch.80 PVC, colored hot glue sticks(larger size, not the smaller ones), a stock 4b (old style) and anything else you can offer.

Excuse the double post, but...

-Phree Agent is now the official co-host.
-What other rounds, besides CTF and TDM/Pistol rounds would you guys like to play?
Can anyone bring some legit flags (so we don't have to use hats and stuff) for CTF? If not, I could probably find a way to get a few.
Edit to avoid posting AGAIN:
THE WAR IS ON THE 16TH, PEOPLE! 16TH! of JULY!
I realized that some of you may not have noticed this...

Also, I will take/buy/trade for ANY HORNET TANKS (no leaks, please) that you can offer!

Don't base the date on whether I can attend or not. Settle on a date, then it will be easier for people to make plans because then they don't have to worry about potentially keeping two dates free.

UPDATE!

Please post all trading-related things in here; the DCNF trading thread!

Will anyone be bringing/can bring any melee stuff? We may, if possible, have some melee rounds or melee+blasters rounds, just for fun. I'll probably be bringing a pipe insulation sword or something. PM me if you'd like me to make you one...

I have a 50% chance of attending on the 23rd (if that makes a difference). If more people can attend on the 16th, then just keep it to the 16th (I wont be attending on the 16th). I'll comfirm if I am a definite or not in a week or two.

I have had a change of plans again. I was scheduled to come back from Canada on the 16th but we are now coming back on the 9th. The bad news is, that my family (and others) had booked a camping trip back in April. It turns out that they made the reservation on the 16... So I guess I'm out on this one unless somehow the war is switched to the 23rd which I would be a definite for (I don't think it will be changed just because of me). Have fun at Beall. Chaos don't forget to keep track of the weather and don't forget to bring the things I told you to bring to the war.

That sucks, man. Sadly, we won't be able to change to the 23rd, as of now, since we have more definites for the 16th...
Hopefully you can make/host the next one! Have fun on your camping trip! Thanks for all your help w/ hosting and stuff, too!

Just a little recap, since my previoius posts were not very clear:
THE WAR IS ON THE 16TH OF JULY, 2011!
PHREE AGENT AND I WILL BE HOSTING THE WAR AT BEALL ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IN ROCKVILLE, MD!

We currently have 6 confirmed definites, awaiting a couple of people's statuses. WE NEED MORE PEOPLE, guys! Let's make this an awesome and worthwhile event!

EDIT: Also, I added some behavioral guidlines/rules to the OP, called the "Guidelines to non-douche-ness"

Guidelines to non-douche-ness: MUST READ!-We are using Beall's space for this war, and we DO NOT wanna get kicked out or get the cops called by the school!
-please keep profanity and vulgar symbols/actions to a bare minimum
-please keep loud yelling to a minimum too; there are houses nearby, and we wouldn't wanna disturb the school's environment with loud noises.
-PICK UP ALL TRASH that you leave, whether it is from lunch or a blaster. If you are seen leaving too much trash, you may not be invited to the next DCNF; the hosts/other attendees are NOT here to be your maids.
-try to pick up all darts during dart sweeps/lunch; we don't wanna leave too many darts on their field (it's pretty much the same as litter to them)

-If you repeatedly act violate these rules throughout the day, you may be asked to sit rounds out, or to leave/not come back to DCNF wars...let's make this a fun war for everybody, and a non-disturbing war for the school! Afterall, we're there to have fun, right?
