When: Saturday July 19, 2014- 8:30 A.M. set up and geek out, foam flies at 9:00. We usually end at about 1:30 P.M.
Where: Murray Park soccer fields- Murray, UT (Suburb of Salt Lake) Theyíre in the east section of Murray Park. This section only has road access via Vine St. If the road connects from State St. to Vine, you need to take the next park entrance to the east. Itís the one that dead ends inside the park.

We generally meet in the parking lot or near the huge hill. If the area is occupied, we will still meet there, and decide on an alternate area. The park is huge, so we're bound to be able to find a vacant area to nerf in.
*There are restrooms near the play area.
*MUST BE 13 OR OLDER TO ATTEND! This is for safety. You have to be 13 to be a member of this site anyway... Depending on age, we may be willing to allow people under 13 to play, but they must have a parent or guardian present the whole time. Please PM/ email shmmee or I in advance to discuss this.
*Parents are encouraged to come watch and express any concerns they may have.
What to bring:
*EYE PROTECTION! Eye protection must be worn at all times by all participants when foam is flying.
*WATER! Donít get dehydrated. There is a drinking fountain at the park, but donít count on it in case it isnít working.
*Food- Not required, but highly recommended. Most of us bring something to snack on between rounds.
*Primary (I recommend more since itís always nice to have different options and backups in case one or more of them crap out on you.)
*Blaster that shoots ~35 feet or less for the awfuls round.
*Darts! All darts must be padded! NO EXPOSED METAL/HOT GLUE! No weight restrictions- but be reasonable. Please make your darts easily distinguishable as your own so everyone gets their darts back. We have darts to lend people, though it would be nice if we could get at least some of our regulars to make some. Our supply is shrinking...
* Friends! More participants= more fun! Please try to bring enough blasters/ darts for yourself as well as the people you are bringing with you. We donít mind lending stuff out, but we only have so many.
*Loaner blasters and darts! I have some loaner blasters and darts, but itís always better to have extra than not enough. This would be greatly appreciated.
*Your B+ game and a good attitude! We Nerf for the fun of it- not the win. Weíve never had a problem with bad sportsmanship, so Iím not too worried about this. Just donít be a douche and have fun.
*Stuff youíve been working on to show off!
*Cover! Mobstacles and similar items that can be used as cover would be appreciated. We now have a really awesome set of mobstacles thanks to bex, so thanks a ton to him!
Blaster restrictions:...are currently on a case-by-case basis. Just donít bring anything you wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of.
There are a few things I've noticed at wars in the past that I'd like to address to improve everyone's experience.
*Please ask before touching/ using/ borrowing anyone's blasters or darts. They will most likely say yes anyway. Also, please be respectful of others' things if they do allow you to use them. We put a lot of time/ money/ effort into our blasters.
*Even if you were using someone else's darts, please stay and dart sweep with us. You shoot darts, you help pick them up. Please don't dawdle when it's time to dart sweep either. If shmmee or I say it's time to dart sweep, come dart sweep.
*Please follow the rules of the game, ask for clarification if you need it, and have fun.
*Shmmee is the ultimate and founding S.L.A.N.G. member. What he says goes.
We don't mind lending blasters/ darts to people. Though, please be aware (and make guests aware) that eventually, you will be expected to own and maintain your own blasters/ darts. We strive for modders in this group. One of the main reasons we have wars anyway is to see how our blasters measure up to others' and to learn from/ geek out with other people that obsess over the same hobby.
So Who's in?
