Hello once again, friends!
The time as come for yet another summer of nerfing. I'm glad to have hosted some successful winter events so far, and I am proud to present my first summer war! Get acclimated to the climate of the hot and humid Northeast before the coming Apocalypse here on Long Island.
Where & When
East Meadow, New York 11554
July 16th, 2016
From 10AM to 5PM
Precise Coordinates: Field 2 of Eisenhower Park, Here's the GPS link: 40.725879, -73.568206
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. If you are taking the LIRR, look to get to the Hicksville Station from Penn Station.
NOTE: I am looking into this park and other lower-profile parks as well and seeing if I can book areas out so we can have exclusive access. I will keep you posted here and on the facebooks.
Here's the linkeroo --> http://www.weather.c...ay/l/11756:4:US
- Must be 13 or older to participate
- EYE PROTECTION IS MANDATORY.
- Absolutely no shooting, pointing blasters at non-players. I will personally escort you out if this rule is broken.
- 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 are being a jerk/whiner you will be asked to leave. Never had this problem before, let's not start now
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.
-Hot weather amenities: A big bottle of water or gatorade, a snack, a towel, sunscreen, maybe a hat.
-At least two primary blasters.
-$5 or so for pizza. May end up getting Domino's pizza. It's sacrilegious for Long Island, but it's cheap.
-Extra Darts.200 is my minimum that I like to carry.
Blasters and Foam Darts
-ABSOLUTELY NO BLACK OR CAMO PAINTED BLASTERS
-No homemade compressed air powered blasters. All other homemade spring powered blasters, and modified or stock store-bought blasters are sweet. Bring extra homemades if you got 'em, expect to be pelted with high energy homemade foam blasters should you attend.
-#6 washer weighed slugs ONLY for homemades. All other nonmetal darts are allowed. No slingshot weighted darts, no exposed metal darts, no glue-dome darts. This is your only warning.
-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?!
Food, Downtime, and All Other Rules
We are going to keep rounds moving quickly this time around, with pizza and cold drinks being delivered from Domino's at a pre-determined time, probably around 1PM. Last winter, rounds were a little slower than I would've liked, so this time we'll keep things rocking and then have a solid hour for lunchtime midday.
It's gonna be hot. I will have a cooler of stuff and soda will be brought with the pizza. No alcoholic beverages, please, if you want to get some beers afterwards that's fine, but not while we are playing.
The don't be a douchebag rule, as always, is in effect.
PARENTS OF YOUNGER PERSONS: You are always welcome to play with us, just keep in mind typical participants range from 13 all the way up to ladies and gentlemen in their 40s. We are not a day camp, we are not a nursery. We are under the impression that all participants will act in a mature manner. There is no adult supervision, no liability insurance, and no one who will take responsibility for your child. While injury is unlikely at best, this is an intense sport just like lacrosse or hockey.
Attendees: If we get 20 or more that show up, I'll raffle off a free rainbow pistol
RSVP Here, or on the book of faces.
