I figured that it was time to revamp the BANO threads, after #4 fell through due to some weather problems. Although there already is a recent BANO 4 thread, it is old and over posted in. I think a new one is necessary, especially since Righteous is not ging to be active as often.

If you don't know me, but for some reason want to, I am Hoth and was pretty active back in 2009/2010 when BAFF was the group for this area. Since then, I have left and returned to Nerf and BAFF has changed to BANO.

I'm posting this as an organized reference thread for all the BANO wars that we will have, so when it comes time for another war, not everything has to be spelled out again. Just check here.

So, pretty standard stuff.

Location: William Cann Neighborhood Park, Union City, Ca.

Now in my experience, it is a deceptively short drive from the West Bay, if you are coming from that side. Although it seems like a ways away, I come from the Palo Alto area and it is never as bad as I expect.
Picture of the play structure, which is always fun to mess around on. Typically, stay off unless we are the only ones using it.

Date: SEE ABOVE POLL. It will be held in March, either on the 23rd, 24th, or 30th. Please vote. Generally, we roll from 11a to like 4 or 5.

Here is the breakdown of the rules, although I'm sure we are all familiar.

Blasters

There are the obvious restrictions such as singled Titans, Cobras (Jobars, Pangos), roto rockets, or homemade air blasters. Shotgun attachments used on the aforementioned blasters should have at least 3 barrels to them. On stronger air blasters (use common sense), please make sure there is a functioning Over Pressure Release Valve. They are there for a reason, and even stock blasters must utilize them to both prevent tanks from breaking and people from getting injured. We wouldn't want either. As for spot banning, I think if you follow the above rules you won't run into much trouble. Just don't be that guy. But definitely bring backups, both to trade and to use if the group decides your primary is simply too powerful. Also, be mindful of the children that use the park. We are absolutely not always the only ones there. That is a rare gem. Stray stefans would definitely suck for a toddler. Melee is cool, too.

Ammunition

Ok so I guess I have been gone for too long, but I have a plethora of slingshot weighted darts. From observations on other war specifications, these are a no-no unless you absolutely have to use them. I suppose the group as a whole should also be allowed to either give you the go ahead or step up and offer you a safer alternative. If you use slingshot weighted darts OR ANYTHING WITH A METAL TIP, please bring it to the group's attention so we can discuss. Pictures are always nice.
So, recommended ammo types would be:

Anything without a metal tip (silicones, AMIORS)
Stock Darts (elites are a great alternative to stefans if you have the proper barreling)

Arrows, rockets, and balls are all cool.

What to Bring
--- Eye protection. It just makes no sense not to wear any, so please bring some. Extras would be great.

--- Money for food

--- Stuff for trading

--- Backup blasters; loaner blasters

--- Secondaries. For pistol rounds.

--- Darts. Extra would also be appreciated, I'm sure.
Game Types

Pretty standard stuff. These are often decided upon in a very impromptu fashion during the war itself. But from past experiences, expect some standard team death match, pistol rounds, the occasional HvZ, FFA, and CTF. If you have a suitable core, let me know. DTC would be super fun.

Lunch/Trading

Basically, if we are not nerfing, we are trading or eating. Now I personally love trading. I always bring like my whole freakin' collection of blasters and parts. However, we don't want this to impede on the actual war, because thats what we are here for. So, we can set specific times for trading and make sure to keep them concise. I remember when I played with the BAFF group a few years back, we spent a lot of extra time just mulling around after trading.
As for food, there are a few options. You can bring your own,but there is also a nearby burger place. Also, we used to order Pizzas from Dominoes (or Pizza Hut, who knows) and you would just pay by the slice to whomever purchased it. Pretty cheap, and really good option for food.

Here is the Facebook event page that Righteous created for this even when it was actually happening. I am not an admin, so I can't make any edits. But I can make a new one. Do people like the use of Facebok for the planning? If so, I can create a new page and friend all of y'all.

I am down, but it doesn't seem like too many Nerfers are active around the bay area. Some day I'll go to a war!

Maybe we can get together and mod sometime--I live in west San Jose and all my friends are too busy or don't care to mod.

I would love for it to happen, but it honestly looks like too few people are interested at this point.
I may try again next month, but I think I am going to start traveling to wars now. The bay area scene seems to be fading.

That's to bad. Maybe posting in the 2013 war thread would help. http://nerfhaven.com...31 I know some groups show up at the BANO wars without confirming if they're gonna be there in the thread most of the time. Though I've only been to one NIC war myself.

But I'll try make sure to keep my small groups schedule open if it's being moved to next month again.

I can possibly attend something (just needs to have enough people) if it is held on the 23rd or 24th. I haven't been up to date on Bay Area wars, is there a new group email or do you guys just check the wars section for threads?

I have not been up to date on things either, but to the best of my knowledge there is a Facebook group for the Bay Area Nerfers. Otherwise, I am just using the war forums.

Something on the 23rd or 24th of this month would totally work for me as well. I can edit the main post and poll, see how many people we can get.

*Edit- We should get to a group to make it down to 'Geddon again this year.

I assumed the 3rd is meant to be 23rd, but I'm equally available for the 24th. Besides me and HOTH, who here is willing to attend something? I can possibly give rides to people if transportation is an issue. Nothing will happen if you don't speak up though.

In case anyone has been reading this and is planning on going, it's not happening tomorrow due to lack of attendance.
