Is anyone going to be selling darts at the war? I discovered tonight that my local sources of foam officially suck.

I'm looking for the following items to purchase/trade for:
-Blue Longshot Scopes
-Yellow 6-Shot N-Strike Clips
-Orange 6-Shot N-Strike Clips
-Vulcan Ammo Boxes
-Vulcan Tripods
-Longstrike Stocks
-Longstrike Barrel Attachments
-Longstrike Flip-Up Sights

If you accept my custom parts/spacers for a trade, I generally provide a higher cash value worth of the spacers/parts than the cash value of the item you're trading me. So if you want some of my wares and have stuff that I'm looking for, then the trade is in your favor.

I'll be there +1. Looks like the chance of rain has mostly subsided, high of around 80. Should be a nice change of pace from the winter.

There is some awesome shit brewing here, my loins are aquiver.

For those of you who do not have school or jobs right now: please please please start packing if you have not already. I will be bringing an SUV full of crap and I'm half done, don't wait till tonight or you will end up doing it in the morning and end up rollin' in at like 11.

Carbs: I will have some darts for sale fo sho. $10 for 100, plus we have like 900 darts in the community dart bin.

A reminder: bring primaries AND PISTOLS! Not 'physically small primaries': pistols. Or stock/mostly stock blasters: I'll count those as pistols. For the last three wars playing close-quarters territories has been a huge hit and we will absolutely be playing that tomorrow.

-Wendy's is way too far from the war location
-Rain
-Didn't finish any of my new blasters in time for the war.

Was it a war? Did people show? YES, and it was fun as hell!


Personals:
-McNumnums on the scene with wit and wicked war participation. Par for the course, really :P
-Kaniocre with the sweetest ninja gloves of all time and great insightful conversation
-Aubry with the LASER aimed at my FACE! You single handedly stopped like a million DTC points.
-Hippomatic and his melee tomfoolery, plus great cover fire
-Cheerios: I got to nerf with you, can knock that off the bucket list
-Demon Lord: tactipimp and recocku-sweet, as always.
-DL's friend: sorry, I forget your name, but you nerfed hard all day and that was pretty sweet
-DC-10Homeslice: used your blasters all day and racked up more hits than ever. Also, you get more range out of $6 worth of PVC than I have ever seen.
-Kippers: SO glad to see you, you pumped that penguin like a pimp
-Veet: you are just awesome
-Zorn's Kalvin: #yoloswag420blayzit
-Starkles: you have 2 months to put a 12 barrel arrow attachment on the UFG. Also: glad to see you, as it is every time.
-Tron: sorry the sun never came out so you could not blind us with your longshot. Next time I'm sure.
-VenZach: you personally won DTC with your wicked sweet craftsmanship. Way to read the fucking rules.
-OOOM-lout: you showed more balls with your camerawork than with nerfing, which is a big deal cuz you lit the field UP
-Carbonie: you brought it, and orchestrelectric is the best thing scince symphonic powermetal.

War stuff
-Stupid hard CTF is for the most part stupid
-I loved stupid hard CTF
-strong participation in clean-up, I cannot say how great that is an how much easier it makes to host a war
-tons and tons of silly ammo for DTC, thank you
-more out of towners than MN, I think that means y'all know we bring it, which means now I'll make sure we HELLA always do
-first time I used a springer heavily: I now understand 82% of the home mades forum
-stock blasters and close quarters is almost TOO fun

Thank you everyone for being a good war attendee, there is just no other way to say it.

-Aubry with the LASER aimed at my FACE! You single handedly stopped like a million DTC points.

She felt really bad for the face shots, she definitely wasn't trying to do that. Sorry.

-stock blasters and close quarters is almost TOO fun

Yeah, both Aubrey and I enjoyed this a lot. It was a blast and a good way to wrap up even with the rain.

+was fun, had a blast, and the rain held off for most of it. Also an excellent turnout
-took a shot to the face that broke skin
-mosquitoes, holy crap the mosquitoes

Wish I had been feeling better, but I ran around a lot more then I thought I would when I woke up. You can't miss SPANO, rain and shine!

Good war, wish I had not forgotten my camera. I'm looking forwards to the pictures Stark's friend took.

As usual, well worth the trip

+Not the only Illinoisan this year!
+Many new faces, many familiar nerfers.
+Getting to nerf with new and old friends alike.
+Pistol Territories actually turned out quite fun.
- DTC second round, not fun getting taken out by Clara/Aubry/That girl who showed up with Hippo constantly, no team support
+Hella good shootouts with said girl
+Hail-fire with 8 18shot clips. Nuff said.
+It took losing 70ish lbs, wearing baseball cleats and tossing a few bricks into his ammo pouch when he wasn't looking, but finally beating Carbon in run.

Now to just see Umlaut's pictures...

Don't worry so much about what other people will allow. Throw your own wars and kick your friends' asses until they all want one.

Nearly forgot to recap!

+It was definitely the most relaxed SPANO I’ve been to, and one of the most relaxed wars of its size I’ve ever attended. There was no drama and shitty behaviour, and everyone seemed to have had a lot of fun.
+Lots of out of state people! Glad you all made it.
+Showing up right before the first round started.
+Leaving right before (I assume) it started to rain.
+Using up a bunch of terrible darts.
+/-TCD’s SNAP was outperforming every other war-legal blaster, shooting lasers, and leaving welts. That thing was both impressive and terrifying.
+The arrow-turreted VenoMaxx served me well during DTC, thanks in no small part to Kane’s bin full of arrows.
+Getting a Vulcan from Paul for super cheap.
+Driving Paul and Derek to lunch.
+No major weapons failures, other than breaking the PVC stub off of a wye.
+Despite my Sceptor leaking, it was still a fearsome blaster.
+The muzzle smoke effect seen with Ryan and Kane’s blasters due to cornstarch.
+Landslide victory in DTC, which prompted me to suggest to Erik we have a DTC-focused war (see Augustsational).
-Broken shake machine at McDon’s = Sad Paul
+Not getting kicked out of the park or harassed.
+My tac-vest was a big hit and the subject of many jokes. It’s totally unnecessary, but so awesome.
+Funny group discussions about various happenings in the NIC, like the sale of a SM1500MB.
+/-Umlaut sitting out to take amazing pictures.... which are nowhere to be seen.
+Doing very well despite zero dedicated preparation.
-Getting destroyed in DTC.
+Great weather. Overcast, no rain (for most of the day), and little wind.
-Missing the unfair gun in action.
+”Venom, that Sceptor.... I HATE that Sceptor” -Demon Lord.
+SCEPTOR SPAMMING
+MOSH PIT
+And finally, a thanks to everyone who attended for making it a great war. Thanks most of all to Erik for putting on a hell of a show.
