The Difference:
-Guns shoot bullets that kill people
-Blasters shoot darts that tag people

I do not play with guns.

Oh, I'm there.

Let me know if you need a place to stay beforehand.
(I live in Rochester now, so it wouldn't shave that much time off of your commute).

I might go if more people go. Nerfing doesn't seem very popular in most states for some reason.

Thanks! I'll take you up on that another trip. This time I'm driving up via Wausau and picking up some of my friends' kids (so I'm gonna be a +4 for this war). Couldn't convince any of my friends to come along....maybe next time.

Midwest nerfers: does anyone know of a good foam source from any of the chains we have available (Lowe's, Ace, True Value, Homie D, etc)? I did a McMaster order, and found that the 20' lengths of FBR they stock are the Dennis brand...same stuff that Menard's currently carries, and is woefully undersized. I'm at crunch time for foam for .5" CPVC barrels. Any ideas?

Ryan and I will be bringing 3k darts, but they may or may not fly straight.

Nerf wars benefit from a certain degree of randomness.

 

Positive thing: shandsgator8 was able to get a shipment of foam off to me today. With the proper amount of prayer and fasting, it should get to me by Friday (which means I know what I'm doing Friday night)....I should be covered one way or another. Thanks.

Looks like my darts won't make it there in so we'll only have a thousand of those Zorn mentioned. It turns out China is far away.

Pretty much.

+ Getting to see Ryan, Zorn, Venom, Beaver, Velveeta, Gears, and the MN crew after missing out the last couple of years.
- Driving to Minnesota and getting rained out.

Seriously, that was some Biblical shit.
