Out of curiosity, do glasses count for eye protection?


Typically, yes.

Okay, awesome. Having trouble finding safety goggles that vent well and don't fog.
I might be using snickers/makeitgo style stefans with my hoppered BBBB (unplugged). Couldn't get it to feed right with felt tipped slugs or AMIORS, maybe youse guys there can shed some light on that.

I can bring you some good glasses if you like. They don't fog up at all.

You can just get a pair at home depot for like $7 bucks. That's where I picked up mine, and their pretty good.

Glad to hear you made it back safely. You guys were cool, hope to see you down here again sometime.

Pros:
  • War.
  • Megas.
  • Cool people++.
Cons:
  • Not war.
  • I lasered a Fresno dude three times during the Missile Crisis game. Sorry, Fresno dude.
I would like to see any group photos posted here (preferably in as high a resolution as possible). It's nice having the record of it in the actual thread.

9 years since my last NIC war(Armageddon 2004), so much has changed. What hasn't is the chill/cool people and the amount of fun it still provides like back in the day. Hope to make it out to some more SCUN Nerf outs and Ice, it was nice seeing you after so long! Count me in for your Armageddon.

Also, Here's Last year's Video if you guys missed it, seeing as I didn't get it finished until the night after this year's 'geddon, I wouldn't be surprised if you did:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LQcmdofYCx4

I should have this year's video knocked out in about a month, We have A LOT of good footage this year, should make for a good one. (I still need to collect Apollo's footage, and have a full time job/commissions to fulfill keeping me busy)

Items of Note:
*Missile Crisis clearly has a maximum number of players... and I think we exceeded it this year.
*I really gotta get more Pyragon drums. pfft.
*Next year I plan to figure out a work around for the whole "overheating video cameras" problem.
*Always good to see the old faces, and happy to see fresh ones. Did you guys realize that we had people playing at the war this year who weren't born when the first Armageddon happened? that's nuts.
*Nice to know there's a few gents further south than me again, hopefully we can have an event in Riverside County again now.
*Our many Travelers were rad, I'm sorry I didn't get to chill with the Washington guys much.

Twas a fun day gents, look forward to the big One Five in 2014.

@Zeke, I love that you actually shot photos with black and white film.

In other news: Video all up in this thread. Just under 2 months, waaaay better than the 1 year it took me to finish the last one.

I'm sorry but it doesn't work on Mobile (I'm not re-editing to get rid of whatever song was the reason for that, I already can't believe I've found the time to do this this quickly my life has gotten infinitely busier since starting my current job)

Fun Fact, we had SIX AND A HALF HOURS of raw footage this year.

Apollo's Contour's Video Sensor clearly has something wrong, but the look of a "intentional filter" coupled with the large amount of "fisheye" video inspired my "skateboard video part" approach for this year.

Pilz and I are already making plans on how to shoot a better video *like abusing the fact that he has film school friends* for next year.
