Date: Saturday August 3rd, 2013
Time: Arrive by 9:30. Leave yourself plenty of time to find parking and walk to the staging area.
Location: Deal Test Site (Joe Palaia Park) in Ocean Township, New Jersey.

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 rules and schedule
-Show up on time
-Attend the orientation if this is your first Apoc. Orientation will be held at 9:30, try to arrive by 9:15.
-Be familiar with dart/blaster restrictions
-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).
-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. Bring a backup blaster. Don't expect anyone to wait for you to fix your gun to start the next round.
-Lunch is your own responsibility. There will not be enough time to leave for lunch. 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 (many people bring at least a gallon). 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.
-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 (I don't care if you took off the tank, or if it is stock, etc. The answer is no)
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.

ROUND SCHEDULE
The round schedule will be done on-the-fly by the Round Enforcers. The day will be blocked out in 1-hour periods, and the Enforcer for that period will be running the show. Be ready to leave the staging area for an hour at a time, bringing everything you need with you including water and ammo. Round Enforcers include myself, TED, Koree, Andtheherois, Sublime Dom, JWasko, Gears, Muttonchops, and JLego. We will be playing a variety of gametypes including a lot of Deathmatch (3-15), Minnesota VIP, some Carpe, a variety of speed rounds to fill in down-time, at least a round of Freeze Tag, possibly some Gunslinger Heaven, and maybe some clan wars. See the List of Gametypes thread for rules.

MAP
Note the alternate parking areas, marked with blue 'P's, and the NEW Staging area, marked in Green. Fields are marked in Yellow.

GOOGLE MAPS/GPS INFO:
40°15'21.85"N 74° 1'25.08"W
40.256069, -74.023633

271 Whalepond Rd.
Oakhurst, NJ 07755
(if you don't specify the town it will take you to the wrong 271 Whalepond)

Deal Rd & Whalepond Rd
Oakhurst, NJ 07755

My best advice is to use a GPS or Google Maps to navigate to one of the coordinates, address, or intersection above. Depending on what direction you're coming from, you'll either end up on W Park Ave, or Deal Rd.

If you are driving on W Park Ave, you turn right at the light on to Whalepond Rd and make a right into the third park entrance. Parking on right. If you end up at another traffic light, you missed it. Turn around and follow the directions below.

If you are driving on Deal Rd, you turn left on to Whalepond Rd at the light and make a left into the first park entrance. Parking on right. If you end up at another traffic light, you missed it. Turn around and follow the directions above.

CANCELLATION POLICY/RAIN DATE
Short answer - there isn't one. http://nerfhaven.com...ndpost&p=332397

Subscribe to the NerfHaven.com twitter account and have notifications send to your phone via text if you don't have a smart phone. Any emergency notifications that go out on the day of the war will be posted to the twitter account as well as this thread. I will also be available via the LGLF hotline at (732) 903-5453 (732-903-LGLF) on the day of the war. I doubt any of this will be necessary and you should assume that Apoc will proceed as planned.

I think you mean Saturday Aug 3rd, Phil. I will be in attendance at least for a couple hours in the morning. I am doing the Warrior Dash the same day in north jersey. I need to keep the streak alive though. Only Vaccine and I have been to EVERY SINGLE APOC, and I don't intend to let the streak die any time soon.

PS, I still hate all of you.

Smoochies.

I played 7 rounds last year with just a lightly modded nite finder I modded 5 minutes before I left to go at 4:30 in the morning. I had more fun than I have ever had before in my entire life. Do some small mod to a longshot, 3B, or something. Shoot for 90ft and if you fire on an angle you'll do fine.

It's a good idea to come to the APOC Pre-war. This way you can get a decent understanding of how wars work. They are held in the New Brunswick area which is about 45min away from where Apoc is held.

As for attendance, I will definitely be there.
