As of now, my attendence status is Most Likely. I have to work out some plans. Is it going to be at the first or 2nd park listed? If it's a the second park it's most likely a no for me.

The first is an Elementary school that was used for DCNF 1 and 1.5, so as of now I believe it's at the second to try something new, but I believe if the Tarp tied between the tries for mobstacle plan doesn't work out(Doom is going up and trying it one day), Chaos would move it back to Beall.

I'll visit Calvert Road Park again this weekend with some rope and a tarp to see how well that works. Please remind me if I don't post about it by Monday.

I suggest to those attending to gather and bring to the war any ropes and tarps you have. More is better.

I'm the same, haven't since September, and I was ill-equipped then.

@Doom, If we don't have enough of both those materials, would Beall be more optimal ? This war could likely exceed 12 people easily and i'm not sure how much of this stuff to make cover Chaos or others have, and I am pretty sure I have none myself.

Keo is right...we played at Beall multiple times in a row, so it might be good to change it up. However, if Doom concludes this weekend that the park is not optimal or if we cannot get enough tarp and rope, then I am afraid we might have to resort to Beall.

Does anyone have any rope, fabric, tarp, or other material suitable for use as cover? If so, please speak up! I only have so much, but I'm sure you guys have some too! It would be greatly appreciated.

So for now, I'm gonna say that the venue is undecided, but most likely gonna be Calvert.

I can pick up tarps for pretty cheap at a store near me, but i could only get them to you if you do the elementary school, as my dad said absolutely no for me to go to calvert road place.

Why, is Calvert Road Frisbee Golf park a good bit farther or something like that ?

Well, college park is near DC, so my dad doesn't want to have to deal with all the traffic around there... Plus, i had trouble even convincing him to drive me to the elementary school, which is over an hour away, and the calvert road place is near 2 hours away. There'll always be other wars though.

Beall would be closer to DC than Calvert Road me thinks.

However if the cover problem should arise on Calvert Road, having a good bit more people than we had at DCNF 1, it will maybe feel different. Plus we could try to add some mobstacles to the soccer field portion.

EDIT: DarkPC is my "Guest", was at 1.5 with me. He's a maybe if it ends up being Beall, but a likely if Calvert Road.

I'm up for some war, possibly +1. Either location is great for me, I'm almost exactly halfway between them!


EDIT: +1 confirmed.

Keo, whether or not Beall would be better depends on what you want. I think either would be an okay war site.

thesaz123, your father is not familiar with the area. Both are near DC. This is DCNF, after all. The driving time for both will be about the same for you (1.5 hours) according to Google Maps. Traffic in the DC area can be bad, but it probably won't be bad on weekends. If you want to avoid the Beltway you don't have to take it either way.

But driving for 1.5 hours both ways is not fun so I suggest finding more local wars.

I have one that we can use for the main bucket. Then, if we can't find two more legit buckets, we can makeshift for the other two-cups, bowls, etc.

I would still love to make it back to the DMV area for a war, but I'd have to spend both Friday night and Sunday night with a host. It's a punishing drive from CT, before factoring in any traffic.

Sorry, but I don't think I'll be able to house *anyone* this time around.
Someone please house this man?

It might be possible for you to live with me for a bit, but I will have to check a few things first.

Does anyone know of any other potential locations? Schools? Parks? I've been mainly searching for/looking at site for ES's in Montgomery County for the time being, but none seem to be as unique/nice as Beall.

I'll continue searching for parks, though.

EDIT:
Potential condidates, in addition to Calvert and Beall.

DarkPC sends his recommendation of Lane Manor and University Hills parks, they're both connected by a walkable bridge from each other, and presumably near the campus.

Here's a map of both: http://maps.google.c... 20783&t=h&z=16

Alright, sounds good Saz.

Doom, would Beall work for you? Would you have means of transportation there?

Does anyone have any preferences? Beall or Calvert? I think Beall would always be good for a war-it's a "classic," but I think Calvert's trees are nice. Thoughts? I'd like to get a location decided on soon.

I'll cast a vote for General Getty, but I know you hate that park (for no real reason aside from the fact that it's "too small").

I don't hate General Getty. I just wouldn't really prefer it, due to lack of natural cover.
