Shake off the New Year's hangover in the bitter cold with the Long Island Nerf Clan (me and my amigos). Blasters will be strained, wills shall be stressed, and toughness will be put to the test. Read on if ye dare...
Where & When
East Meadow, New York 11554
January 2nd, 2016
From 10AM to 4PM
Rough Directions: The closest address to the entrance is 1899 Hempstead Turnpike, East Meadow, NY 11554. Plug that into your GPS and it will take you to the intersection of Hempstead Turnpike and Park Blvd, the main entrance of the Park. Turn onto Park Blvd and we will be on or near FIELD 2.
Shit's cash, yo. It's gonna be 29-40 and sunny, with New Years day also being sunny and dry, so pack for the cold but expect to remove some layers. Here's the linkeroo --> http://www.weather.c...ay/l/11756:4:US
- Must be 13 or older
- EYE PROTECTION IS MANDATORY.
- Absolutely no shooting, pointing blasters at non-players.
- Be respectful of players and non-players alike. If we need to move, we move.
- No facemasks, camo, or super tactical clothing.
- You WILL dart sweep if you want to have this again.
- If you are being a jerk/whiner you will be asked to leave. Never had this problem before, let's not start this year.
What to Bring
-EYE PROTECTION: There's a home depot literally across the street. If you forget it, cough up the $5 and get a pair there.
-Cold weather clothing, if that wasn't obvious. Dress heavier than you think you need to; gloves, scarves, hats, the whole deal.
-At least two primary blasters.
-Water or gatorade and maybe a snack
-$2 or so for bagels. May end up getting Domino's pizza. It's sacrilegious for Long Island, but it's cheap.
-Extra Darts. Recovery is relatively low if there is snow on the ground. I'd say 200 at bare minimum.
-ABSOLUTELY NO BLACK OR CAMO PAINTED BLASTERS
-No homemade airguns. All other homemade, modified or stock blasters are sweet. We had a good mix last year and it was awesome, but bring extra homemades if you got 'em
-#6 slugs ONLY for homemades. Silicone domes are OK too, but nobody uses them.
-Bring extra blasters that you are OK with others using. We need as many extra as we can get.
-3-15 and 5-0 Team Deathmatch
-Bomberman: A game of my own design; this time with better equipment! [think Luke Skywalker firing proton torpedoes into the Deathstar]
-2 or 3 way Defend the Core
-Super Secret Objective Based Round?!
No pizza this time because that sucked. Instead, will buy some bags of LI bagels from an awesome local place and bring them in for lunch/breakfast/brunch/whatever, just bring an extra $2 for that. Afterwards, there is a good diner about two blocks away that we may grab lunch/dinner at after the war. Additionally, we will have a table set up and better play equipment for objective rounds.
Attendees: If we get 20 or more that show up, I'll raffle off a free rainbow pistol.
