Me and Mike hinted at a summer war in our last topic, so long ago. This is going to become a reality.
Lately, we've been involved in music too much to bother with Nerf, Tony can vouch for that. Now, I miss Nerf, and I want to re-kindle my interest in the hobby. Now, I know you've noticed that I haven't been very active of late, I've been lurking around the forums due to lack of excitment.
So, the planning begins for a CFM MMNO Summer War. Me and Mike will be hosting as always, and now that we in the CFM really know eachother, we can all help out.
I've kept the flags we used last time, and some other things. Me and Mike were thinking about maybe allowing homemades to this war, on the condition that they go through inspection. We are hoping to keep the old format, but I have an idea.
Location change. Plain and simple, we loved the school we were at. No one was around, it was quiet, and it was big. Apart from the nice rain, it was a great day. Now, I go to a high school that has an acre atleast of field. I want to try it out. The school is bigger than the one we were at, and it has MANY hiding places. The school is more urban, and has trees and benches and tables. The big kicker is the enormous forest in the field which links the junior high to my school. The forest is amazing, and actually has a path and a very nice clearing that me and my buddies made so many years ago. The clearing would be perfect for lunch, storing stuff and all that. On top of all of this, we can actually climb the trees in there because they are actually living... something rare in our area. One minor detail is that there are houses around like last time, only there are more.
Now, after reading that paragraph you say, "Wow, this might be cool.". Okay, I'm hoping you said that. Anyways, this is it boys, shall we change the location a bit? It's merely 4 minutes away (driving) from the other school we were at... so not too drastic of a change.
About everything else... we want to keep it the same. It worked last time, so why not use what works? The fact that we have a cop in the group works to our advantage, so thanks for that (you know who you are). Now, a big thing is that we need more people. The seven we had was good for a first war, but we need a bigger roster. I can expand the CFM by 4 at least, because the friends that once told me I was wasting my time, now want me to mod them a few Maxshots. I have 4 friends in total that would definatly come to join the war for the entire day. So I ask if there could be some asking around by the rest of the CFM to their friends about the possibility of them joining us.
I like to think that the CFM is a pretty tight group, so I believe the parents will allow us to do this uncontested. I'm sure a war for the summer isn't too much to ask, and I'd love for this to be an every 3 months event. We could exclude winter if we wanted to, but with global warming and all... we can't count on winter showing up every year. Anyways, I want to hear from all of the CFM, even you, 1/2 n' 1/2!
Let's get down to it, whos up for the First Canadian War... 2?
Later guys, I hope you are as enthusiastic as I am about this!
