OK this is more to get Hot Soup to shut up, but it would be fun as well. I will be opening my building to others to nerf in, my friends want some new targets and well their nagging can be quite annoying.

Here is the deal; I have workers in there during the weekdays, so weekends would be better: however, given the lack of daylight. We can play at night I have lights throughout the building. If we do play at night I will ask that everyone chips in a few bucks, electricity is not free. Also the first three floors will be restricted due to construction but that leaves another 6 to play on though.

I will not set a date, ideally I would like clans to contact me, or if a group of individuals can make a certain date I will try and accommodate them as best I can. Since I donít know any of you personally a waver will need to be signed waving rights. Also since I own the building it will be uninterrupted battles that can go on for some time, lights are nice. And multiple floors mean multiple battles and themes. The building zip is 26003.

If you really are renting out the space, you should have:

THE LOCATION OF WHERE YOU LIVE
A waiver in PDF format
Pictures

Other than that, good luck. Most of us VANS guys have Nerfed in a nearby warehouse, it's pretty sweet. (Cxwq may post VANS4 pictures)

Is it really asking too much for people to actually read a post before replying?

THE LOCATION OF WHERE YOU LIVE


And where exactly did I mention renting anything? I do remember inviting people to come and nerf with my friends and myself though.

I don't think it would be difficult to tell anyone your building is in West Virginia. On the Ohio River.

I also think Hunter meant "Location of where your war site is", not where you live. Obviously you won't be nerfing at your home.

I'd do a double check on your property insurance and see if there are provisions for medical, emergency transport, and such, in the unlikely event anyone gets injured; you're in the business so I think you know what I mean. Either that or you'd get stuck with the bill.

Keep everyone out of the construction zone, no matter how tempting it may be (it's always fun when the building is in a state of renovation). Hazards everywhere. And OSHA would have a field day if they made a surprise inspection on a weekend.

And finally, make sure your support services (bathrooms, a/c, etc.) are in working order. Nothing like sweltering in a building when the A/C goes off, or flooding if the toilets overflow.

I'm just giving you some friendly advice...Nerfing with close friends in the comfort of your environs is one thing, when you invite any and all into your privately owned property, you are putting a lot on the line...that's why most of the Nerf community goes to public parks/ outdoor fields.

Great idea, though!

Put up some pics of your indoor Effeminates; I'm sure everyone is as curious as I am on your "large scale" wars.

I mean absolutely no offense by any of this, nor do I claim to be finely tuned...but for some reason, my bullshit detector is going off like mad. I don't know why, but there is something about this I just don't trust. Give exact locations and some more details please.

Thank you, Pinney. Your clarity is graceful.

Yes, I meant where in the world do you live as in where in the world would you and your building be. Giving me a ZIP code wastes alot of time, buddy.

I got the "rent" impression because you implied having people contact you instead of organizing a war yourself, and you mentioned money.

Yeah, I read the post, numbnuts.

Lee shut the fuck up.

I'm really skeptical of this. It seems to me if you own a building that you intend to use for a medical billing company, it doesn't make much sence to Nerf there and screw it up. And if you are in the business you should also realize just how directly this idea falls into the "shit that could land me in prison" catagory.

Now I'm not trying to call you a liar, even if I think that to be true. What I'm saying is that this whole idea doesn't make much sense. I'd be all about nerfing inside, but most of these dudes are using pretty powerful weapons, and every indoor battle (the word ambush is more appropriate) I have participated in with modified guns has turned out in blood. Not to mention if you have a building, I'm going to assume you used dry wall. And dry wall is completely destroyed by darts. Drywall is expensive, and spacle sucks. So if you have this new building, you know your drywall will be ruined, cost you money and time, and your worried about the lights? This seems risky as hell on your part, and shady as a pet store owner carrying a case of lollypops in a station wagon past an elementry school.

Again, I have no proof, but something is just setting off my bad-fucking-idea-o-meter. Sorry dude,

Talio.

The building itself was constructed around 1900, and is composed of 4 sections that measure 150 feet by 28-30 feet. Almost all the floors are open with the exception of a few sections that have offices. The walls are steel reinforced I beam at least several feet thick incased in brick and then plaster. The ceilings vary in height from 12-20 feet. And the whole east side of the building is solid glass block incased in steel I beams it really is something. My medical firm is not moved in and construction has yet to begin, only on the second floor. The length of the rooms does address the high powered question and I do have 2 modded crossbows and a sm 5000 but we have never shed blood in our wars yet. The floors we nerf on are open and have not gone through renovation in probably 30 years. This building has been a furniture store for the past 70 years. I have one floor with brown wooden shingles on the inside, my guess it was there outdoor furniture section of the store. I will try and send out some pics but if you send me some email addresses that would be quicker.

Also to clarify myself I have about 10 guys I nerf with regularly, what I want is not to have a huge open war with a ton of people I donít know, but an invitational kind of thing. Say a few guys have a weekend free and want to come out, or some of the jersey guys want to carpool here. From reading the war post here it always seems that 4 or 5 guys can make one date and not another, or that you guys have some difficulty with cops or such. I am just trying to give you guys some options, share the wealth that kind of thing. Plus it gives my guys some new competition and sharing of the love of the game.

But by all means I have no problem answer questions so keep them coming. And I will work on the pics.

I have a few problems with all of this. For starters, this is not the best general war organization topic. Now I know this is being opened as a resource to the community, but the lack of details on your part Ender doesn't make me all warm and fuzzy inside. You seem to have been here for more than 6 months, so I would guess you should know how things go down in war organization topics, but this doesn't seem to be the case.

1. You didn't give us a definite location, and have still yet to do so (it's been said, I know).

2. You have no other contact information listed besides email or PM.

3. The fact that you own this place seems to imply that you are over 18, or your parents aren't in a position to have control over their kid. How old are the guys that you nerf with? How old are you?

4. No one here has seemed to met you from what I can tell. I appluad you for trying to host a war, but it's typical practice for the person running an invitational to attend other wars before they take on a feat such as this.

5. The building you describe to me seems a bit odd for a medical billing company or a furniture place. You mentioned that that the building was mostly empty, except for a few offices. I don't mean to declare myself an expert on building or business, but that does not seem like an ideal building for such a company.

6. I am going to make no secret that I am pretty damn skeptical about all of this. Feel free to disprove everything I just said, but until then I feel that this whole topic is pretty shady and encourage people not to reply to this until he gives out some more info. This just sounds like a plot to adbuct/kidnap a bunch of teenage boys if you ask me.

Hey guys, can't you take the sticks out of your asses for a few minutes? He posted this before right here- http://nerfhaven.com...?showtopic=2743 and nobody whined about it. Odds are he isn't a child molester (so stop dreaming guys) since he had a war before, posted the same zip code, and gave the same story in that topic.
Everybody should be thanking this guy for offering such a kick ass war, and for putting up with everyone calling him a liar (but saying that they aren't, just in case).
And 1/2 newb 1/2 retarded was a day late and a dollar short to jump on him for not saying where it was.

Listen guys I understand the address thing but you need to get where Iím coming from. This is not some random public place, i.e. park, school, whatever. This is a place that I own and at one point I plane on renovation the top two floors into a tight apartment. Not to mention my place of work. So I know there are probably a million ways to find out my address and what not but Iíd rather not give everyone another. I have no idea who does read this net. So I will send out emails with pics of the building and talk with people who are or will be in the area and set something up as well as give those directions. But if no one wants to take me up on the offer then there is no point in throwing it out there, but hey thatís fine itís not like I am hurting for people to war with. I just though I would offer you guys something new and different.

And as for the allocations, please like mantis said stop dreaming. I have a very hot girlfriend whom is cool with my nerfing, which makes her worth her weight in gold as far as Iím concerned. I also coach high school soccer, not sure how it is in other states or in public schools, but the private schools do background checks as well as profiles before they let you coach oh and you have to take a state certified class, it is a bit of a hassle but I believe all sports should do this. Iím in my third year coaching now.

For all of you none believers.

It sounds great if your can get everyone more information. And the others are right, you need to check with your insurence agency and make sure if anyone is hurt you won't be liable. For those under the age of 18 who may be coming should sign parently release form. And I would say everyone needs to sign a medical form. But that's just what I would do. Because this IS a place of business and you ARE legal responsible.

You should handle this in a mature and adult fashion so you don't get your pants sued. I know this sounds over the top, but it'll keep you out of trouble.

I, personally have had legal training and I can tell you that if you don't get this right, your screwed.

You guys need to understand something. I war every weekend. I coach a
hs soccer team of 35 guys who beg me to have practice at my building so they can play, not to mention all my friends whom Iíve been nerfing with for 10 years. I understand how the wars work on this site, but in my case it just doesnít seem to make much sense to drive 5-6 hours to nerf when I have the ideal setup where I am not to mention an eager supply of people to nerf with. Wars anytime of the night, enclosed space so dart lose is minimal, weather not an issue, no hassle from anyone, can build and leave bases and floor designs. The point is I donít need to invite people off the boards in order to have wars, I am trying to be a nice guy and give everyone an opportunity to have as much fun as I do and I would appreciate people stepping back and taking a look at what it is that Iím offering.

I do not want to set a date so a mass of people I donít know come to my place. I have no desire to post information up for everyone to view.

I do want groups of people to come in for wars from a clan or similar area. I do want people in the area to contact me and hopefully we can set something up. I do want to be in contact with everyone who plans on coming before they get here. I do want to talk with responsible people who wish to have fun. I will email pictures and directions to people who wish to know more about this. I will have my lawyer draw up something to protect my company for people to sign. I already have wars weekly with 10-15 people, more if Iíd let them come. I would like to have other groups come in have some fun. Just pm me your email and weíll be in touch.

Oh and BK thanks for trying to lookout, but for the record I was on a nationally ranked mock trial team for two years in college and got a 167 on my LSAT, before going overseas.

No problem, I just don't want to see anyone get screwed over a nerf war. 2 years of mock trials in college...hmm...when I'm done with college I'll have about 6 or 7 years done. Nice to see there's another Judical/ Legislature/ Debate geek.
