The little critters of nature, they don't know that they're ugly. That's very funny, a fly marrying a bumble bee. I told you I'd shoot, but you didn't believe me. Why didn't you believe me?

It's too far away in the year to know if I can make it at this point.

 

If I can, you'd better believe I'll be there. Probably with a +1.

Awesome! The people who have responded to this thread plus their guests plus CaptainSlug himself totals 7 attendees, and there's still months before the actual war. Question: Will there be loaner weapons/darts available? Also, what will the policy on modded (not homemade) darts be during superstock rounds?

1. Question: Will there be loaner weapons/darts available?

2. Also, what will the policy on modded (not homemade) darts be during superstock rounds? 

1. Blasters, maybe. Darts? Probably not.

2. They just need to be full length.

Can he come.

You can bring him so long as one of his parents/guardians will be present, but I reserve the right to eject him from rounds if he cannot adhere to the match rules. And everyone is required to wear eye protection.

One month to go. I will be supplying Pizza and beverages to the 16 people that RSVP'd. Everyone else better bring your own food.

Thunderbirds are go. Weather looks decent for tomorrow and I got all the essential prepwork done.

 

Everybody that shows up gets free drinks and pizza.

That was very fun.

 

Pros

+ One round every 30 minutes

+ 17 attendees, only a few had to leave early

+ Most of my stuff worked

+ Everybody had fun

+ Everybody followed the rules

+ No Law enforcement showed up, and no locals complained

+ We were done in time for a High School group to show up and take over the pavilion

+ I wasn't the oldest person there

+ Pizza delivery guy was on-time and didn't get lost

+ No injuries

+ I went literal with the "dart sweep" and bought a huge dust pan with a long handle and broom to use for sweeping darts. It worked and kept me from having to bend over to pick up darts and HIRs.

+ Attaching multiple Triads to my belt loops using zip-ties, and getting a dozen kills with them

 

Cons

- I managed to cut my artifact-length darts just a hair too long to fit my 22-dart artifact mags which showed up the day before the war. But thankfully someone let me borrow two Worker short-dart mags for a round or two

- The wye hopper in my Piranha which I had just upgraded decided that it didn't want to feed men-gun darts. I may not have cut enough material out of the inside corner of it and had to use my very small remaining supply of felt-tipped stefans in order to use this blaster.

- Off-and-On rain for 80% of the day, but nobody complained. We just played wet.

- I am very sore

- I didn't get my mag-fed pistol done in time

- Zero kills with the Spiderman Wrist blaster I zip-tied to my left arm

 

 

And the attendee that is interested in buying my Piranha (or commissioning one) needs to send me a PM.
