NoMNE 5.0


Date: July 18th 2015

Time: We will probably start around 9:45-10am. Most of us will be there early to set up our staging areas.

Location: 434 McBride Road, Fayetteville, GA

What too bring:
A) DARTS, we WILL NOT be renting darts to ANYONE, we are starting to run quite low. So yea...man up and make your own. I recommend at least 250-300 per person you are bringing with you (more if you are using hoppered springers).

- I would prefer not to to see a ton of scavenging off the field (again our Darts are starting to get worn out).

-The only restrictions on darts I am placing is No Slingshots, and darts must have at least a inch of foam. It has always worked fine for us, and I am not changing it now.

- #6 Slugs are preferred on all accounts.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

B ) BLASTERS, Bring at least one RELIABLE primary, springer pistol, and a Awful (shoots 15ft or less). Stuff breaks, so bring extras. I will be bringing my comprehensive toolkit (and some supplies), however that DOES NOT mean I want to sit out rounds fixing something, you are free to do so if you wish. Bring a Awful if you plan on participating in that round.

-DO NOT bring anything Crazy overpowered (I am specifically looking at homemade airguns), We will still allow the normal singled BBBBs and the like (Please use slugs with these). If your primary is deemed to be too much, I WILL ask you to put it down.

-Realistic blasters are dumb.

-Melee is acceptable

-Blaster hits DO NOT count, this however does not mean you can strap a large shield to your blaster. Be smart, or I will ban it.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Other things to bring:
-LUNCH, I would NOT LIKE to see people running off for a 45 minute lunch break. I personally think it is much more efficient to just bring one with you. Trust me, a turkey sandwich tastes just fine after you have been Nerfing for a few hours. You are free to do what you want though.
-WATER, Bring some, IT WILL BE HOT. I would say bring at the very least close to a gallon. Drink plenty.
-SUNSCREEN, the sun will likely be out, and I have gotten some horrific burns. Just do it. (I am sure we can find a burly man to help you rub it on)
-EYE PROTECTION, We fire some heavyweight darts (not that it matters), YOU WILL BE WEARING THEM WHILE ATTENDING. I could care less if you are 18 or not.
-A fold-able chair, these make resting in between rounds so nice (if you have one/can fit one)
-A pop up shelter if you have one to help out with shade?
-Mobsticles if you have them, we will be providing around 10 total but more cover is better.
-Something to lay your blasters out on/in, unless you don't mind them laying in the grass
-Money/Blasters for Trading, we like to do a lot of this down here, so bring what ya got.
-Intelligence, Don't be an idiot.
-A good attitude, if you act like a crybaby we will escort you off the premises as a crybaby.
-Bring a loaner blaster if you got one, stuff happens.
-Do not bring any open alcohol, illicit drugs, or real firearms to this event. Or I will have you escorted from the premises.

Put me down as a maybe. I'm at the point where I need to go visit colleges and Georgia Tech is on my list, so I might be in the area around the time of the war.

Me and my brother (Nicholas and Ben) are obviously already going, I've got Paul (fathertime) coming, and another guy. This is the first war I've gone to outside of our weekly wars, and it's a 10 hour trip. I'm super excited and cannot wait to play with everyone. Bobo owes me dinner, too, so I have to be there for that.

War is tomorrow. So much hype!

I'll be on the field before 8:30 to start setting up.

According to Facebook, we may very well have over 30 people this war... ;)

Yesterday was, far and away, the largest NIC war the Southeast has ever seen. At one point, we had 40 players all on the field at once. I think it absolutely deserves a recap.

+ So many awesome new people that showed up; Steve and his son, Cameron, Tamera, Scott and his family... I'm sorry I don't remember everyone, but thank you!
+ My 24th NIC war, the biggest war the SE NIC has had, and the biggest war I have ever been to thus far.
+ NoM bringing 6 of his own mobstacles, giving us a total of 11 barriers that broke up the field very well.
+ Red making a stupid amount of high-quality slugs for her friends. Thank you as always <3
+ NoM and Red donating our old darts to the loaner bin, and Troy making several hundred domes just for loaners. Thank you.
+ An incredible maze of shade; there had to be at least 9 tents set up.
+ Feeling so comfortable playing with my Crossbow. Got lots of hits, and compliments on its looks and performance.
+ Having lots of fun with my beloved (and now-functional) Arrowstorm.
+ Our normally massive field felt so small with this large of a crowd, making for some very frantic yet enjoyable FFA rounds.
+ Zax showing up before lunch, and using a hopper. lolwut
+ Chenanio
+ Paul
+ Aidan
+ Playing an awesome new variation of Freeze Tag that was super fun, intense, and fast-paced.
+ Tagging out quite a few people during said Freeze Tag rounds.
+ Drac impressively holding down his position from a 3-man rush, including shooting me at point blank... multiple times, actually. Hopefully that made for some sweet GoPro footage.
+ Having a total of 19 specially-named loaner Nitefinders to hand out to people, and people laughing when I read the names aloud.
+ Potshotting with pistols.
+ That last 3-man team pistol round; Nathan exhibited some truly veteran-level 3 vs 1 play. He runs right up to me and shoots me, evades all four of Zaxbys' shots and shoots him, then dodges Chenanio's shots and barrel taps him, only to surrender to Chenanio's last life out of exhaustion. Very well played my friend.
+ Being eliminated in the 3 Wildcard round almost immediately, but getting an excuse to take pictures.
+ Selling, trading, and raffling enough stuff to walk away with some awesome new things at no cost.
+ Getting to handle a Thunderblast in person, can't wait to get my own.
+ So many cookies.
+ Retiring my Chicken war shirt of nearly 5 years.
+ Bullshitting during and after dinner for several hours.


+/- Focusing on helping to run a war with so many people, I felt like I didn't get to interact with and talk to people individually as usual.
+/- Being somewhat flustered by the unexpectedly massive amount of attendees.
+/- Running out of loaners.


- - - - - My Crossbow broke :(
- The brutal Georgia heat and humidity.
- Was told of less-than-stellar sportsmanship by our younger attendees.
- Had my Crossbow disassembled in an attempt to repair it; someone moved the shell and all the screws disappeared into the grass.



Of course, the pros always outweigh the cons. Our wars are always great, and I feel so lucky to be a part of one of the best Nerf communities in the world.

May I borrow your time machine?

 


Conveniently, the thread for this year's NoMNE should be up soon, so sit tight.
