As discussed yesterday, I am trying to get a monthly Nerf war set up in the Houston area. I really like the wooded area at Schott and as long as nobody sees any reason to move, let's keep going there.
For future reference, I will tentatively schedule a war for the last Saturday of the month unless conflicts come up. The goal here is to expand--we had a lot of fun yesterday but could use a lot more than four people. So, bring your buddies. Bring your HvZ squadmates. Bring your SCA friends--they can run around with boffers and beat us over the heads. Bring your wives and your girlfriends (but obviously not both at the same time).
Location: Humble City Park/Hilton C. Schott Park
8510 Will Clayton Drive Humble, TX 77396
Date/Time: Saturday, October 6, 11 AM until we get tired (I will stick around longer this time, promise).
Specifically, I will try to get us over in the wooded area by the alpine obstacle course. That was a really nice spot in my opinion. Park over by the H on the map--the main parking lot is a bit of a ways away.
What to bring:
-Eye Protection (seriously, guys, let's not get hurt)
-Blasters: Primary, Secondary, Etc. Bring more if you'd like, and loaner blasters are very important if we want to expand. Give the newbies a taste.
-Horribles: Bring at least one truly crap blaster/pistol/what-have-you
-Ball Blasters: We all seemed to have a blast with the ball rounds and they will continue.
-Rocket Launchers, arrows, disc launchers, anything that fires wacky stuff is great!
-Stuff for trading. Work it out in this thread or just bring some choice items. Most of us have a decent collection, so bringing a bunch of crap will just wear you out.
-Hydration. There will be a cooler full of blue Gatorade and bottled water if so needed, and donations are appreciated to cover said cost, but unnecessary/
-Melee is allowed and encouraged. Anything made by Nerf or within SCA guidelines is acceptable to me, although I reserve the right to spot-ban anything that I think is unsafe. Shields are more than fine as well, particularly if you're going melee.
-Darts. Lots of them. There's practically no grass where we've been playing, but you will lose some.
-Good attitude, but that goes without saying.
What Not to Bring:
-Overly powerful blasters, like a singled Titan or whatnot.
-Crap darts. No exposed metal, please. I personally don't care if you're shooting slugs or domes or stock darts or what have you, but let's not go crazy.
-Camo/Black/Realistic blasters. Historically this hasn't been a problem.
We'll be doing a lot of Deathmatch/Team Deathmatch/Wingman rounds and probably some CTF and perhaps Assault the Fort or Offend the Core should we get enough of a crowd. Other games to be discussed.
Mobstacles remain a wonderful dream of mine that has yet to come to fruition, but we'll see what happens with the Mother-In-Law.
+1 or 2 for JPRoth1980 (but they always say that)
NOTE: If you need directions or anything of the sort, PM me and I will give you my cell number.
[EDIT: Wow, that was strange. Accidentally copy/pasted the last war instead of the next one. Sorry!]
