When:
June 23, 2012
Show up at 9:30am. Games will start around 10:00. We’ll probably end around 3-5pm depending on people's exhaustion.

Where:
Whetstone Park of Roses
3923 North High St.
Columbus, OH 43214

- Go in the entrance and follow the road down the slope and over a number of speed bumps. Then, when the road splits after the small bridge, turn left. Since it will be Saturday morning, there will probably be quite a few cars parked along the sides of the road. We will play somewhere in the left side grass area.

Rules:
- Eye protection is mandatory for all participants.
- No participants under the age of 13. Also, we do not want any parents dropping off their offspring with the expectation of the older people (such as myself) taking care of them. We have our own shit to deal with at the war, no one wants the responsibility of a child. If you're a parent of a younger participant, please remain in the parking lot or on the field during the war in case something bad happens that the child can't handle itself.
- Air blasters that originally fire a projectile larger than a micro dart must have their over pressure valves unmodified.
- Singled Titans are banned. Titans are allowed if they have a shotgun attachment with 3 or more barrels. There will be no "I promise to load more than 3 darts in" or "I promise to only pump is "x" amount of times."
- No shields will be allowed.
- Do not use any blasters painted all black. If you have a dark blaster, please avoid wearing camouflage clothing or too much tacti-cool gear.
- Blasters will only be banned due to safety/power issues, not because it dominates.

Dart Regulations:
- Felt pads are mandatory on all homemade darts - Hot glue domes are banned.
- The weight under the felt pad is limited by weight, not size or style. You aren’t limited to washers.
- It’s tough to define what weights are allowed because there will be safe exceptions to any rule, but we don’t want anything jutting out of the side of the darts or heavy enough to inflict excessive pain. If you’re trying to sneak around the rules, please know the hosts will still have final say and we’ll be banning anything that is too dangerous. If you’re unsure about your dart style, contact me BEFORE the war.
- I thought it went without saying, but I've received questions in the past: Yes, you can use stock darts. This includes stock Vortex discs.

Game Types:
- 3:15
- DtC
- Blob
- Multi-team 3:15
- Carpe Testiculum

Other Information:
- Bring a bagged lunch or money to get lunch during a designated break.
- Be sure to bring enough darts to support yourself and your guests for the whole day.
- Remember to bring water.
- There will be profanity at this event. Many of us are in college and joke about funny shit. If you can't handle the funny shit – you are not welcome to ask us to stop. But you can leave :D

Attendance:
- If you plan to attend but cannot post here due to validation issues, please send me an email at Coop772 (at) gmail (dot) com if you’d like to RSVP.
- If you're on the fence about playing with us, feel free to shoot me a PM with any questions you may have.

It's a pretty good chance I'll be able to go as of now, if anything changes I'll let you know.
But I have some questions.
What is the appropriate barrel length for a big blast that is allowed? 12"? Nothing shorter or nothing longer than 12"? It is only my second war so that is why I'm asking.

Also, here is my dart style just to be sure it will be allowed.

Angel's Beige foam
3/0 Fishing weights
White felt pads part#8771K22 from Mcmaster
1.5" in length

We don't restrict barrel length on Big Blasts with a blanket ban. If you're using the stock pump and have not modified or plugged the over pressure valve, you should be fine.

If you try to do ninja modifications (tank expansion or OPV modifications) and the blaster is shooting excessively far, we will ban it. If you did a pump replacement that allows a higher PSI input in order to quickly get off a round that the over pressure valve isn't fast enough to regulate, it may be banned. Broken SVT did this to his Big Blasts and didn't tell anyone about it. It's douche-y and will be banned.

Your darts sound great. No problems at all.

The stock pump was giving me problems, because it was the original big blast version and had an awful seal. Yeah, I was being very aware and careful about keeping an overpressure valve, I haven't done anything like what Broken SVT did. I assume any pump that is stock with an OPRV would be fine to use? I was thinking about using a stock 2k pump, which is really the only spare pump I have currently.

Hahaha, yeah there really isn't a lot of nerfing in Michigan it seems. The only other michigander at Massacre 7 besides myself was Hydro and Deamon, the guys with 7+ longshots haha.

A stock AT2K pump should be fine. In the end, we'll spot ban anything that is shooting too hard.

Honestly though, it won't be that big of a deal since we're using limited dart mass and felt pads. Ohio nerfers aren't total vaginas like other areas of the country, so I'm sure you'll be okay as long as you're not trying ninja mods.

The best nerfers live in California...obviously. TROLOLOL

Are Brian and Hippo able to make this one, Coop?

Slime, I've never met you before. But you are from Michigan, and I attend Ohio State. I think you know where I'm going with this.

Joking aside, I hope you can make it. It's always a fun experience flinging foam with people you've never met before in a children's park early in the morn. 'Merica!

Just to up things a bit: if we get at least 12 people in attendance (and playing, too), I'm going to put up a blaster or two for raffle. Probably one of my tinted clear blasters.

Well chances look slim for me making it, I have no idea when my foam's getting here for my darts and have no other stefans made.
I hate not being able to make this one, I really wanted to war/meet with some new people.

Thanks! I joined the forums in January, I've only been to one NIC war (Massacre 7), but besides all that I've been modding for a few years and know what I'm doing. Hope to see you at a war soon!

I got plenty of darts, I have no way of getting there. And the reason why I may do the 7th is the 8th is my 20th birthday and Sunday I'm in church all day.

5 rounds; we are so good at Nerf guns.

It was a fun war, we just need better attendance to make it truly great. The Park of Roses is a sweet venue, with lots of cover and shade. It's perfect, minus the hipsters of course.

I'll put up the thread for the next war soon. The 21st of July, as discussed.
