Glad to hear it. How long of a drive is that?

 

Oh, and be sure to also join the Facebook event, it will help with planning (since I can send out push notifications, rather than relying on the forum).

I am very interested in attending... It's similarly 6 hours or so, but I'm hoping to make it out. I'll likely bring at least a friend or two.

 

EDIT: I sadly have to cancel. I'll make it to MN sometime this summer though.

Any age restrictions? My little sister wanted to go but I didn't think she would be able to go.

I eliminated the section in the rules about pistols, since I don't think we'll be doing any pistol rounds. Or if we do, I'm just going to wing it when it comes to rules.

 

 

Any age restrictions? My little sister wanted to go but I didn't think she would be able to go.

None in particular. I won't babysit or anything, but even children can fling foam.

#1 Is it alright if I come late?

#2 Are there weapons and ammo that I can use, or do I need to get a gun by that day?

 

I am very new to nerfing and have never been to an official war, so sorry if my questions may seem obvious.

Yep, you can show up anytime you want.

You do need to bring your own gun and some darts. I would recommend picking up one of the Elite line of blasters - a Strongarm is a good cheap choice.

 

(I'll probably end up lending you one of my SNAPs, but be sure to have something of your own to use).

I haven't tried them out in a regular war. How hard is the tip?

Yeah, then that would probably be a no-go.

Still, if you have some, bring it along. We'll do a blind test to see how much they hurt.
