Date: Saturday August 4th, 2012
Time: Arrive at 9:30, orientation at 9:45, first round starts at 10:00.
Location: Deal Test Site (Joe Palaia Park) in Ocean Township, New Jersey.
Hosts: Langley and Vacc with help from the LGLF and TED

YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES
-Be 13 years of age or older. If you're not old enough for this site, you're not old enough for this war.
-Familiarize yourself with the schedule
-Show up on time
-Attend the orientation if this is your first Apoc
-Be familiar with dart/blaster restrictions
-Bring your own darts and blaster. Assume you will need around twice as many darts as usual, and/or be prepared to sit out a round just for dart sweeps
-Lunch is your own responsibility. We will not be breaking for lunch as a group. I suggest you bring a packed lunch and eat on the field. If you leave for lunch you *will* miss one or more rounds.
-Bring Water. It will be extremely hot and humid. A minimum of 2 liters of water/Gatorade is recommended. There is nowhere to get water on the field
-Bring Hat/Sunscreen/Sunglasses. It will be hotter than satan's taint, and there is not much shade at the park. Bring sun protection or you will burn.
-Bring Protective Eyewear. Everyone is required to wear eye protection. Goggles or safety glasses which are rated for impact are strongly recommended. Masks of any sort are discouraged (This isn't Canada, no one is aiming for your face).
-Follow the instructions of the hosts and field supervisors. Certain people will be designated as field supervisors and will be helping us run rounds. Listen to what they say. Our authority as hosts and admins extends to them for the purposes of this war.
-Clean up after yourself. Flagging tape, bottles, etc must be removed from the park.


DART RESTRICTIONS
All darts must be made using a 1/2" diameter 1/8" thick adhesive-backed felt bumper from McMaster-Carr, part#8771K12. Darts may only be weighted using a single #8 or #6 washer, which must be entirely covered by the felt bumper. Unmodified stock darts are also permitted. See this thread for more details Contact me via PM if you have any difficulty purchasing the McMaster materials.

BLASTER RESTRICTIONS
Banned blasters include (but may not be limited to):
Titans and anything with a titan tank in it (unless you are firing stock rockets, Drac's rockets, or if you are firing darts out of seven or more barrels simultaneously)
Sceptors
Supermax 5ks
Homemade Airguns (includes anything with a pump/valve that isn't made by hasbro/lanard/buzzbee such as those drain cleaners)
Guns with plugged pumps that were designed to shoot anything larger than a mega dart. (LBB/BBBB, Signal Launchers, UMBs etc.) Relocated pumps must include a stock OPRV and must have comparable range and performance to the same blaster with a stock pump.
Super Soakers
Melee weapons/swords
Shields (hits to any shield-like items you may be carrying will still count as a hit)

If you are not sure about a blaster, leave it at home. If you want to be the guy at apoc who's gun shoots farther than everyone else's, *you* should stay home.

PRE-WAR(s)
NJW8 and NJW8.5 are official warm-up wars for Apoc. If you live in the area and have never been to a war hosted on NerfHaven, you have no excuses, you should come to one of these wars first. If you've never been to Apoc, I strongly recommend these wars.

DRIVING DIRECTIONS:
Take the Garden State Parkway to Exit #105 - Eatontown / Rt 36 East
Follow signs for Rt 36 East - Long Branch.
Make an immediate Right at the 1st Traffic Light onto Hope Rd.
Take Hope Rd. for less than 1/2 mile, merge Right onto the ramp for Rt. 18 South
Take Rt. 18 South for approximately 2 miles to Exit #12A - W Park Ave / OAKHURST
Merge on to W. Park Ave heading East, continue for approximately 2 miles
At the 4th Traffic Light turn Right onto Whalepond Rd.
Take Whalepond Rd. for 1 mile and turn Right into the 3rd entrance for the park
There should be a parking lot immediately on your right.
If you come to a traffic light you've gone too far, turn around and then make a left into the first entrance you see.

GPS COORDINATES:
40°15'21.85"N
74° 1'25.08"W

GOOGLE MAPS/GPS INFO:
Google Maps Link
271 Whalepond Rd.
Oakhurst, NJ 07755
(if you don't specify the town it will take you to the wrong 271 Whalepond)



Update 5/31: Dart Restrictions are up. Added attendance poll.

Update 6/19: NJW8 and NJW8.5 are official warm-up wars for Apoc. If you live in the area and have never been to a war hosted on NerfHaven, or if you've just never been to Apoc, I strongly recommend these wars.

Update 7/6: Added directions, banned blasters, attendee responsibilities, Ted.

You must be kidding. Please, for the love of everything foamy, tell me it's not on August 4th. Any earlier and I could come. My hopes and dreams for the year have just been crushed like fine china in a hydraulic press. I'm going to go to sleep for a very very long time now. Until this time next year, actually. Good night, cruel world...

It's been on the 2016 Nerf War Schedule for months, and it's almost always the first Saturday in August. This should not have been a surprise.

Homoerotic in 15 posts. I just lost $5.

It's a bit premature to get into round schedules, but I probably will be running some kind of clan round. After last year, I think any multi-team clan round will have to be objective based to keep people from endlessly running away. I'll put the buttholes and the twinks (Jesus Christ guys, really? And I thought my clan's name was a bit much) on the list.

This year's schedule will have multiple concurrent rounds, so there will absolutely be something else to do during this period.

You can't have a clan war without the Original.


Ho. Lee. Shit. Absolutely. Done. Appropriate that we'll see a clan called the Twinkies square off against The Man Who Once Ate A Clan
