Not calling this a HAMNO since "monthly" hasn't held up.

I couldn't figure out how to embed the new gmap in the post, so you get this screenshot and a separate link to the map: https://www.google.c...c.k21WxZJNTWu8.

Location: Stevenson Park
1100 South Friendswood Drive (FM 518), Friendswood, TX 77546
Date/Time: Saturday, November 29th, 11:00 AM - Whenever
Let's meet in the gazebo (pinned above) if it's not occupied already. If it is, wander around until you find me. I drive a green Saturn sedan, so check the parking lot for that, if nothing else. If you want my phone number for day-of-war communication, send me a PM and I'll give it to you.

What to bring:
-Eye Protection (seriously, guys, let's not get hurt). If you have multiple pairs of safety glasses, please bring them along, just in case.
-Blasters: Primary, Secondary, Etc.
-Loaners: If we get a group of newcomers, these will be very important.
-Horribles: Bring at least one truly crap blaster/pistol/what-have-you. Bring more if you can so we can all goof off.
-Pistols: Bring them. Again, we'll likely do a non-horrible pistol round.
-Melee: Everyone seems to really love our melee rounds and they will continue.
-Stock Dart Blasters.
-Stuff for trading. Work it out in this thread or just bring some choice items. Most of us have a decent collection, so bringing a bunch of crap will just wear you out.
-Hydration.
-Darts. Lots of them.
-Good attitude, but that goes without saying.
-FRIENDS. Get people to show up. We have plenty of loaners and we're not going to expand without promoting a little.

What Not to Bring:
-Overly powerful blasters, like a singled Titan or whatnot.
-Crap darts. No exposed metal, please. I personally don't care if you're shooting slugs or domes or stock darts or what have you, but let's not go crazy.
-Camo/Black/Realistic blasters. Historically this hasn't been a problem.

Games played: Lots of free-for-all 3:15, some team/wingman games, likely melee and horrible rounds, the rest depends on attendance. If we get a decent size group, objective games will be played heavily.

Attendees:
snakerbot+1 (+2 more possible)
JPRoth1980
tarnav001+1

I'll be camping that week for Thanksgiving. Maybe next time I can make it.


EDIT: For the record, that does look like it'd be a good spot for me. Friendswood isn't nearly as far away as Humble was.

I will be in town that weekend but like I said before, my girlfriend's 4 year old son will be with us and that'll be the only day we'll have to spend with all of my family, so we won't be able to make it. Maybe we can make it down in December.

If I don't get some interest in the next week or so, I'll have to cancel this. Come on, guys, I know there were some of you asking about Houston wars.

I'm going home. You know, if you people aren't going to show up, the least you could do is tell me before I drive an hour across the city for a war that should have been cancelled due to lack of interest. Thanks a fucking bunch, assholes.

I've been lurking for about a month now waiting to be able to post. I know this thread is old, but where is everyone on trying to get together a Houston area nerf war in the coming year? At this point, if it's just a one on one duel, I'm game. Location isn't a big factor, but I am in the northwest area.
