....we can add another person to the war list. Not for sure yet but maybe. He’s name is Daniel, cool guy...
Okay guys, this topic died for a day or so... time to ressurect.
I modified the original news letter a wee bit, and this is what we get:Meadowvale Nerf War Official News Letter
Okay people, this is the official newsletter for the ‘Mississauga Meadowvale Nerf Out’. The MMNO 2.
Now, I would like to outline a few key concerns I have about the war. These will be divided into their respective categories: Apparel, Safety, Time, Location, games, and finally, everything else that doesn’t fit in the above categories.Apparel
For a Nerf war, you will generally want to be dressed in something very comfortable, and easy to move in. You will be dodging darts, running around, and it will be a mild day. Suitable apparel is anything you are comfortable wearing. There are laws, however, against certain choices of attire… such as not wearing pants in a public area. I shall hope we all show up ‘dressed to kill’, which is a double entandre.
Bring a backpack for all of your guns and parts, darts, and accessories. When and if we go out for lunch, you don’t want to be seen with a gun… plus, why carry it around?Safety
You will be shooting projectiles at people, and having them to you. Safety is number one, and I will MAKE SURE that everyone is protected. The biggest factor is eye protection, and it will be REQUIRED at this war. Eye protection is goggles, glasses, shades, anything. I will be sporting some rubber science goggles, unbreakable by these darts.
You will also most likely need clothes that will soften the impact of darts. We do however need to be able to feel the hits so that there is no arguing over if you were shot or not.
Gloves are also something to consider, nothing like white knuckles after getting hit multiple times in the hand. Gloves are also good for crawling and such, if you use those tactics.Time
We have our war date set for August 14th 2004. We have set the start date at 11:30 am, and the war will rage until about 5:00. We find this to be a suitable time frame, so that when you leave it isn’t dark, and your parents will be able to get your home for dinner.Location
The location is a school called Meadowvale Secondary School. It is a Public High School located just off of Edenwood Drive. It is the facility beside Battleford Road. The area should be clear, there may be a few people walking dogs and such. (NOTE: If you need maps to this area, contact Spectre2689@sympatico.ca)
The weather here in Mississauga is predictable, and never changes much. For August, we expect a temperature range of 19*C to 30*C (maybe higher), after all, it is August. Wear what is comfortable.
The location has many characteristics that we can use to our advantage. It is a large school, and it’s basically a large box. The place we will be playing at is the forest in the back of the field. The forest is amazing. You will see pictures displayed shortly, once we can get them taken.
There is a plaza with places to eat not far from the location, walking distance (10 minutes). There are larger establishments within driving distance from our warring area as well. Washrooms shall be bushes. Games
We haven’t really figured this out yet, we think that the games will be decided at the time. I would like to try a lot of rule sets and games to get the most out of this experience. Bring your ideas with you, and don’t be afraid to share your thoughts.
Our main game types would be CTF (Capture the Flag), Assault (one team defends and objective, another team tries to complete it), and just a Team Death Match sort of thing. Everything Else
Bring a lunch if you can. This will make it easier on us as a group. Bring friends. Have fun. Laugh more than you cry. Goof around, but don’t be stupid. Remember safety comes first, and always others before you. Be polite and mature, and don’t get into stupid arguments. Try your best to not get hurt, and have as much fun as possible. Talk your parents into watching a round of Nerf so they know what we are doing.
I hope this answers all of your questions. If not, e-mail Mike (Spectre2689@sympatico.ca) or Cam (firstname.lastname@example.org).
