Yep... Its that time of year where we at S.C.U.N. hold our annual NIB/Stock/"Low-Tech on-the-spot Modding" Event... and truthfully I should have posted this at least a week ago but I just started back to Work and well I'm not very good at paying attention to this stuff these days. I hope people can still turn up, even with the late notice.
Yes, this is a "Stock Event" similar to a N.I.B. war but not quite as strictly aimed at using a brand new blaster, as it is going back to a time where you couldn't "science" a nerf gun beyond "slap a crayola marker on it"
Like every Stock War We've done, there will be about a half hour of “Field Modding Time” using the most “basic” of nerf modding supplies:
- Hand tools like Screwdrivers, small hacksaws, pliers, wire cutters, x-acto knives or boxcutters, leatherman tool, hand drills, etc.
- Electrical Tape/Duct Tape etc
- Most Adhesives (includes Epoxy Putty, Super Glue, Plumber's Goop)
- Rubber Bands/Mini bungee
- Crayola Barrels or similar objects like those Jägermeister tubes as barrel material.
- a 2k Pump tube is an acceptable way to mod something for Arrows.
- Electronic mods to flywheel guns are allowed, this ranges from basic higher voltage batteries all the way to full motor replacement.
NO PVC or other Pipe/Tubing WILL BE ALLOWED.
Naturally, there will still be some safety bans, IE no making titans shoot micros. Pistol splats and all variants are not allowed, because they perform on par with modded guns bone stock. But pretty much anything else is fair game. Bring as many or as few blasters as you'd like, by leaving the ammo stock, we should have a fairly level playing field whatever you bring. Also you're allowed to bring any blasters that are already modded to these specifications, be it because you did it for one of the previous stock wars, or felt like modding in advance.
NOTE: If you want to make sure you have maximum recovery of your own stock ammo do something to CLEARLY IDENTIFY IT AS YOURS I.E. I use neon pink marking stickers on my Vortex Discs and neon Pink sharpie dots on my Rival Balls.
We'll start this earlier than usual, so that modding time doesn't cut too much into our playing time, so try to show up by 9:30 AM
The Date is SET as JANUARY 16th
Rolling Hills Park
Fullerton CA 92835
Unlike our previous location for this annual event we don't have restrooms or a conveniently located pizza place... but we do have several shops/restaurants (including a The Hat) surprisingly close to the location... and also pretty much the only Games Workshop Store in the region (so if you like makin' minis like I do, you may be making a trek over there at lunch or after the war) so I suggest you bring monies and or food and have everything you need to stay well hydrated. Hope to see you guys there, I know that I got the actual formal post up late and that may cause conflicts for some and that's a bummer.
