Thanks to everyone who's stepped up and offered cover.
Between keo and I, we have 8 mobstacles done. As 2-D as they may be, they'll work. I think I have enough fabric and tarp for mine at least, dunno about Keo's. I'll take inventory tomorrow/tonight if I have time, and get back to you guys. Honestly, I think that 8 mobstacles is enough to cover Beall's soccer field. I might need some tarp-supplement though.

Also, bring water. Treat this like you would any sporting event where you are playing. We will be running around all day, so bring enough water for a day of running. I know that I have brought lots of communal water in the past, but I do not have enoug water for many loaner bottles right now, and do not know if I will be able to go to the store before the war, so I suggest/ask that you pack a lot.

2D mobstacles are fine, so long as you don't have them all in a standoff or symmetrical position.

Awesome everyone! Can't wait for this war- we have 18 confirmed NIC members so far, and most likely more people coming from UMD to war with us.

Weather's still looking AWESOME:

In the past, we haven't really had a designated trading time, but if a large amount of people would like one, we can always arrange to just take an extra 15 minutes or so before the first round to trade/talk.


Also, does anyone have any game type materials? Tennis balls in a large quantity (50+ or so)? Ping pong balls? Playpen balls?
Anyone have any non-orange flagging tape? I'd like to try out some 3-4 team TDM/Carpe rounds.

I have plenty of golf balls, and I could probably scrape up a few dozen baseballs.

I believe in other parts of the world this is traditionally called "Lunch". Also "After the war"

I've got some colors as well. Not sure if I'll have room for by carpe stuff, depending on the carpooling situation.

Well I had everything planned out so I could make this, but at the last second my ride backed out! So unless someone can give me a ride from UMBC (University of Maryland Baltimore County) then I wont be able to make it :( I only need a ride there as I can get a ride back. If I'm on your way, there is a free electric eal, jolt, or 18 round clip in it for you.

Less than 2 days left everyone. Get all your shit together.
Weather is still looking absolutely great- 0% chance of precip, and an avg of 40's temperature. The war is on.
I wish the best of luck and a smooth trip to all of those who are driving to the war from afar.

Some info the war day:

I will try to be there at 9:30 to start setting up, give or take 10-15 mins, since I will have a guest with me as well.

Please park in the back/general parking lot of the school, it should be pretty obvious. I will be near/in the parking lot to welcome you, and lead you to the staging area.

Please try to get there at 10:00 AM, as that is when the war will start, if not earlier. The earlier the better.

Please read the ENTIRE OP before coming to this war/leaving. It has tons of info that you NEED TO KNOW.

If you have any game type materials or cover materials PLEASE bring them, we have enough but more would always be GREATLY APPRECIATED.

There are restaraunts within a 2 minute drive of the park. Please either pack a lunch or prepare to drive out to those places. I can give you some general directions if you want. Notably, there is a "Potbellys" within a 2 minute drive, which is highly recommended for those non-packers- it's fast and good.

Be prepared to have your blasters range rested and darts dissected (just one or two) to prove legality.

Let's make this an AWESOME war! I'll post anything else I remember/need to say before the war, tomorrow.

For those who know the general region, which route is better from CT to DC: I-95 all the way, or 78 to 83? 95 is the most direct route geographically, but it will also carry the highest probability of traffic and tolls. 78 to 83 swings out west more, but looks to take only 26 min more on paper with less tolls and little possibility of traffic since nothing's out there. On the way back home, I am definitely not taking 95 since I will be leaving during Monday morning rush. However, I don't know which route is better on a Saturday morning-afternoon-evening coming south.

We'll be warring in the backyard of a public Elementary School, so yea, no boozahol.

Weather update:
It was freaking snowing here in Bethesda a few minutes ago, but the large amount of wind kept it from accumulating on the ground, although I doubt it would've accumulated anyway. Either way, it's fine- snow has stopped, no snow on the ground. Ground is dry, so no mud to fuck with.

Forecast for tomorrow:
Posted Image
As you can see, it'll pretty much be sunny all day, but the highest it'll get is about 45 degrees, so be ready for that, although it shouldn't be a problem, as we're not of the female variety, and will be running around all day. Still a 0% chance of precip, which is good. War is definetely on.

I'll post some last minute updates tonight/tomorrow morning.

I'm not going but I'm from LI so we're relatively close. I usually take I-95S to New Jersey Turnpike S to US-40W to I-295 to I-95S to I-495W to I-270 and take MD-28 to Rockville.

Not that I don't need more grinding in my life.

Alright, I am hitting the hay. See you all in the morning.

Really pissed I couldn't make this. My car decided to shit out on me, but I guess it was better than it did so at home than in MD. I'll have to try to make the next big one. Hope you guys had a good time!
