N.E.N.O-
NorthEastern Nerf Outing!

Well, it's Nerf war season once again, and I've noticed a saddening lack of wars (and players) in the Norteast, more specifically CT.


Let's Change That!

What: Northeastern Nerf Outing, a CT Nerf war.
When: May 12th, 2012
Noon- 5:30Pm PM

Where: Veterans Memorial Park
575 Pleasant Valley Road,
South Windsor, CT

Here's a picture -

We will be playing on what is seasonally a soccer field for public use, but this shouldn't be an issue, as the nets can be moved easily (but maybe we don't wanna move them... ).

As far as I know, this place is pretty dormant until Memorial Day weekend. The most we have have to do to claim the spot is shoo away some little kids, but seeing how early we will be there, that shouldn't be much of an issue.

Rounds/Gametypes-
Pistols
Awfuls
Stock blasters/Dart Tag
CTF
Defend The Core
Manhunt
Deathmatch
"Banned" Blasters
Whatever else is suggested (I don't know of many types of games)

What To Bring:

Weapons-
These are all the categories that your blasters can fall under. A * indicates a highly recommended category

NIC Blasters*
These blasters include a spring or air powered primary that can fire on average 90ft-130ft flat, a secondary or backup primary that
doesn't quite meet primary standards, and a pistol, which is a preferably spring powered blaster with a rather low ammo capacity that doesn't meet primary or secondary standards in range.

Stock Blasters
Stock blasters shooting stock darts, nuff said.

Lightly Modified/HvZ Blasters*
Blasters that shoot further than out of the box, about 50-70 feet flat with stock darts.

Awfuls
Blasters that are absolutely awful, or were once awful, but still can't break 35 feet. These can qualify as stock or lightly modified, but please differenciate, and don't try to compete in an HvZ style round with a Tek 3.

"Banned" Blasters
Most wars ban blasters such as plugged Big Blasts and Titans because of their ability to shoot over 150' flat. If there is enough interest
and safety precautions, I will allow blasters like this, granted that everyone is mature about it, and not a d-bag who shoots smaller players in the face with a slingshot dome out of a singled, plugged Titan. Behavior like that will get you kicked out.

Darts-
As for dart restrictions, please do not bring;
Darts with exposed metal
Darts weighted with anything heavier than a 3/0
Besides that, I'm pretty leniant.
Please bring about double the ammo capacity of all your blasters, and then some.
About 200+ Darts.

Supplies-
-Blasters to trade/sell
-Money for trading
-Money for pizza (if everyone kicks in, this is a possibility)
-Lunch (in case pizza falls through)
-Eye protection (please be safe)

What Not To Bring
-Restricted darts (previously stated)
-D-bag behavior
-Realistic blasters without an orange tip
-Nothing (be prepared please!)

Loaners-
This can be discussed via PM.

Attendees

That's all for now! any questions or suggestions may be posted or PMd, as I am open to them. Hope to see some of you on the 5th!

I havn't done this in a while, but I might make it. I'll see if I can clear it up with the parents and friends. If I'm able to make it, I will bring anywhere from 1-7 people with me.

WTF, are you in Tony Stark's basement!?'
