Confirmed and Ima roll up with a gang of mobsticals and a suitcase full of action. Hope everyone like a face full of HAMP.

Some people have been objecting to my choice of Newell park (wanting to do Highland instead, since that's the traditional SPANO location). Any thoughts?

I took the day off! Now I just gotta fix some of my shit so that it actually works. Any thoughts on a mod party during the week leading up to it? I'm usually pretty free Wednesday afternoons.

Beaver, have you nerfed at Highland since we switched which part of the park we use? The past few have been in that area between the parking lot and the street, it's actually a pretty good space for a large war like SPANO.

Agreed, it is also pretty easy to set up even sides on objective games and it is easy for people to find. I'm up for Highland.

I'm really looking forward to this war. It is going to be HOT on Saturday so I urge everyone to bring excessive amounts of water. If anyone is looking for blasters or parts feel free to hit me up (links to my product pages are in my signature). I'll probably bring another bag of free stuff as well.

So that was fuckin awesome.

+Big thanks to Xellah and Chris for making a 12 hour drive to the war. I know what that's like from doing a couple east coast wars with Ryan, and it's definitely more than twice as harsh as a 6 hour drive.
+Also big thanks to Beaver for letting us destroy stay at his house
+And more thanks to SonReese for showing up with more mobstacles, sweet kiddie pool cores, and basically hosting the war.
+Also thanks to Xellah for telling us where to get colored tubes. We thought he was dyeing them, and were totally ready to buy them from him.
+Thanks to whoever made Newall park what it is. I felt like we had one of the best field set-ups I've experienced in my nerfn life.
+Big thanks to St Paul cops for driving by, looking at us, and not stopping.

-Silicone dome recovery was ~40%, suspiciously low compared to the ~80% recovery for everything else.
-My latest overcomplicated blowgun makes too many farting noises, doesn't shoot hard like a blowgun should.
-I still don't live in Beaver's basement with all of the tiny wizards.

Second what Kane said.

This was the first war I attended in nearly a year, and every part was as great as Ryan hyped it up to be. Besides getting to see all the Nerfers I really missed seeing (Stark and Atomatron and Venom and SonReese and special guest VIPs CK and Xellah) the actual Nerfing was pretty on-point. I'm also still acclimating myself to the tighter-quarter Midwest wars where I don't actually need an airgun, so that's been an interesting transition. Probably won't ever happen tho.

Can't wait for the next one.

So good to be back in action! Great fun, great people, here we go!

+Two rounds of DTC with same teams but side switch: genius
+Close-quarters three-way Carpe was great fun. For my team. Who won.
+All you glorious foreigners!
+Brainstorming Nerf blaster and game ideas with some of the NIC's greatest minds
+Dick jokes, balls jokes, vag jokes, tits jokes, and butt jokes
+No less than 7 mutual kills from a good distance, ain't even mad
+HAMP!!
+I actually got a hit on Dirty Dan, but he dirtied me right back and frequently
+The magic of cornstarch
+Warring with Gears
+Warring with Ryan
+Warring with Kane
+Warring with Umlaut
+Warring with Zorn
+Warring with the two tall athletic dudes who I can't remember of the names of because I'm a jerk. Wait is, one Xellah, the one with the Matt Smith avatar? Figured it out on my own, folks!
+Warring with the three tween kids who brought the heat
+Warring with Venom, Beev, Tron, Velveeta, and Stark: my home town homies
+Healthy competition, balanced teams and games

-HAMP jammed, ending its use for the day but inspiring the next model I build. At least it didn't straight-up fall apart.


Next major MN war: Saturday Oct 31.

Damn!

I just barely missed the perfect opportunity for a surprise ambush appearance. SPANO would've been perfect, some of the best memories I have. I love the recap photos you just posted a couple of days ago, looks like you guys had a blast.

I'm not sure if Venom started circulating any wild rumors yet, but if so, they're quite true. So.... October then?

Yours truly,

What a great war! There has yet to be a lackluster SPANO, and this one was no exception.

+Seeing Ryan, Kelvin, and Kane for a second time this summer.
+Meeting Xellah and Chris. Great guys, it's a shame the 12 hour drive means we probably won't have them back for a while.
+Nerfing with Gears for the first time in over three years.
+Old man Erik is still at it!
+Filming numerous episode's worth of material for future episodes of Ethics with Daniel Beaver.
+Discussions of Nerf and white privilege.
+Spoiling Game of Thrones for Erik with Beaver at lunch.
+Taco Bell.
+Thanks to Beaver and everyone else who helped with running the war.
+Nerfing with all of the local usuals.
+Derek hooking me up with some sweet blasters.
+Sam and Umlaut made it!
+Max (Merc) coming to his first war in what, 3 years?
+Unprecedented move of having SPANO at Newell was very successful. We might as well just have every war there now.
+Seeing that Dirty Dan is getting RIPPED.
+The Stillwater crew made it out yet again.
+The guy who I met at a garage sale in Woodbury (Tom is his name) made it to the war and brought it tough-as-nails son too! That kid was a force to be reckoned with, so many knife kills!
+Tender and Tinder.
+Derek is cruising in a sick whip as usual.
+Using all of my vintage homemades.
+My XBZ worked surprisingly well with a hopper.
+Destroying a Vulcan.

+/-Long lunch break... but it was fun.
+/-The teams seemed fairly unbalanced for most of the day. Sometimes that's just how it goes.

-Destroying Sam's forehead with the shotgun-hopper on my Roto-Rocket. I may have to retire that blaster for such uses.
-Last minute location change. I sincerely hope nobody missed the war because of that.
-No Caffeine! But I am glad you've been hitting me up, man! We all hope to see you at a war soon.
-No BustaNinja!
-Missing the first round.
