Date: August 27th
Location: Highland Park, Saint Paul, MN
Time: 9:00-3:00

Here are directions!

Rules and Restrictions:
Darts:
-No unpadded stefans. All darts must have either a foam or felt tip that adequately covers the weight.
-No darts with weights heavier than #8 washers. If you have something else in mind, ask beforehand.
-Unmodified stock darts are allowed.
-Alternative ammo is a case by case basis.

Blasters:
-Powerful air blasters (4Bs, Titans, etc.) should have some sort of OPRV, preferably the stock one. Saying that you'll limit your pumps doesn't cut it. I'll test these on a case by case basis at the war. Use common sense.
-No realistic looking blasters. We don't want to draw unnecessary police attention to this.
-No combustion powered blasters. This isn't spudgunning.

Etiquette:
-Respect both bystanders and nerfers.
-Keep foul language to a minimum.
-Don't be a dick.

PRE-WAR BUILD PARTY
Date: August 19th
Time: 2:00 PM
Location: Venom's Villa, Apple Valley, MN (exact address will be given in private)
Same deal as usual: Show up, shoot the shit, mod/build, eat.

I might be out of town, but nothing's confirmed yet.

I should be able to make it to the mod party though, will know better once we get closer to the date.

I am coming. To both events if possible. Try not to schedule the mod party for a Sunday though. But if you do, that's ok as long as I can bring 1 friend. He has stuff to mod too.

As for requiring stock OPVs- my homemade airgun does not have any OPV, but no one seemed to object to its use last war. Would I be required to add an OPV to it? If so, what PSI rating would I be required to keep below? I know from my experience that a PSI of higher than 50-60 makes my gun impossible to fire without hitting the trigger with a hammer, since the pounds of pressure inside the gun directly effect the pounds of pressure it takes to operate the trigger. Also, in range testing last war my gun failed to break 110 feet (flat) even when pumped to the point of being nearly impossible to trigger. If I need to change it I'll gladly do so, but I'd love to know beforehand. :)

We never have mod parties on Sundays.

Again, it's a case by case basis. If you're consistently not being an asshole with your blaster, then it doesn't matter whether it has an OPRV or not. As far as exact pressure goes...we don't have specific regulations on that yet. Generally, larger volume=lower pressure and vice versa.

Oh yes, and I think I'm going to try and make an emplacement gun for this next war. Just to have something totally ridiculous. :)

I'd like to say that I can make it to this but I'm not sure at this point. As long as the mod party is on a weekday (not friday, saturday, sunday) I'd be able to make it though I'd need a ride.

Anyone coming to the MN mod party got a Hornet I can gut? I need the sliding valve. Or if you live in MN and would like to sell parts to me even if you aren't going to the mod party. This is of course assuming Buffdaddy doesn't have what I need. But extras can't hurt. :)

I have already gutted 2 hornets just recently and If I come I will bring them with so you can take what you need. I will be at the war unless something comes up and I can do pretty much any day for the mod party. Paul if you need a ride to the mod Party I may be able to give you one.

Awesome! Any chance of a spare tank too? Got an idea in mind for a monster pistol. Though the slider valve is going into my Magstrike along with a BS tank and hopper. Can you bring some wyes too?

Finky: I've got mounds and mounds of hornets/hornet internals if Dom doesn't have what you need.

What do you all think about having the mod party on Friday the 19th?

I would also be interested in a hornet tank or 4, but won't be at the mod party (live in Brooklyn Park, can't drive).

I have successfully got the 19th off. I -might- be convinced to drive you with a little coaxing, I'm coming from near there myself.
EDIT: Which means, if you want a ride, you got one. Brooklyn Park is a stones throw compared to Apple Valley for me, I wouldn't mind picking you up.

Most of my family will be out of town taking my sister to college that weekend, so there won't be anything to get in the way of my attending. (If the 19th is indeed the finalized date.)

It's best to bring all the tools/supplies you have that you think you would use. Sounds like there will be a fair amount of people at this one so a table or chair might be helpful too.

If you do forget something or know that you'll need something there's usually a hardware store run after a couple hours.

I can make it to the war, but not the mod party.

I won't have time to make darts between now and the war, so I'd like to buy 300-400 cpvc fit slugs from someone.
