The December '04 YANO is sure to go down as one of the finest days in Nerf history.

Perfect, 60-something and sunny weather. Optimal 10-16 people throughout the day. 13 freakin skirmishes in one day - 5 West Coast 5-hit, 6 CTF, 2 5-hit spring pistol. Nice mix of vets and a few new faces. Zero idiots. Hell, we even got thrown out of our two main areas at the school...

...which turned out to be a great thing because it led us to the Tranquil Grove Surrounded by Lava!

Awards!

Freak Out Cxwq Award: Team Desert Storm - for signing in as AnyaSeijin before making a 1.5 years later return to SoCal Nerf. Welcome back, guys.

Eulogy Award: Spoon - for the loss of his beloved SplitFire sidearm which fell from his holster during a daring CTF grab and is now leaking. Honorable mention to Toj for his horrific, but probably repairable BBB injury.

Good Sport Award: Everyone - for tolerating my verbal abuse every time they got a nice hit on me. Particularly Neonerfer for the beautiful 60' hit in CTF and Hubbard for his inspired play pretty much all day.

Un-Fucking-Hittable Award: Hubbard - for being absolutely untouchable despite carrying his entire arsenal either duct taped to his primary or slung on his back.

John Woo Award: We have TWO finalists in this category! Ray for an amazing run up a slanted tree trunk followed by mid-air hit on Spoon from 30' away during a pistol war. Josh for paying tribute to the master all day with his rolls, dodges, and leaps.

Had My Number All Day Award: Neonerfer/Rawray7/Silent Mercenary - the name of the award kind of speaks for itself here. Neo and Rawray could have hit me blindfolded and I did a poor job of keeping them both on my team. Silent Mercenary airmailed at least 5 of my 10 hits during the pistol war with his NF.

Putting Nerf Above Personal Safety Award: Josh - for climbing halfway up a freaking pine tree to rescue the SSII I threw there in a fit of Hubbard-inspired rage. The NIB Max Shot and PETG I gave him hardly seemed adequate compensation for returning my sidearm.

more to come...

I'm really mad at myself. I swear, I would've been there if my f****** new Lock 'n Load had come in the Mail, and I would've probably brought Nightwing, Pyro,a nd Apollo with me if we had had enough darts and Apollo's new Supermaxx 1500 had come in the mail as well...

Stupid standard express...

Oh well. We'll try to be ready and loaded for the next one.

Cx; I PMed you sopme pics of the Black Knight's war location. I hope you're pleased, because those are pretty bad pictures. When Nightwing gets his film developed, you'll get some clearer pictures from the side, so you can see the bushes from the full field angle clearly, rather than in a blurry, pixelated format.

That was such a good war! Though I wish that I could have come a little earlier than 12-ish. Those CTF and pistol wars were unreal, Ray pity hitting me Ďtwas a bit shameful. I havenít had that much fun nerfing in a long time.

Not only did Josh put the Nerf cause before his own life, but he did it with darts and pine cones flying overhead.

Iím really looking forward to the next one.

i would like to honorably mention toj's 750, which attempted to help get kevin's gun out of the tree, and will probably never work again because of it.

great war guys, thanks everyone who came.

I believe Toj's gun still works, after falling and hitting the ground several times. And Ray...I'm owning you next time. Shootin freakin darts, and throwin guns while I'm climbing a tree and pissing my pants!?

Thanks for the good war guys, it was awesome. My body hurts beyond repair right now, as I have a huge bruise on my ass. I would have to say, that the pistol wars were my favorite. Considering I'd been playing with the pistols all day, everyone finally came down to my level. lol.

And thanks Kevin for the gun and PTEG. Your gun was with getting...now to get new pants, lol.

Looks like you folks had a grand old(e) time. Irvine, that's the spot for 'geddon, right? Makes me wish I could go back out there.

Spoon looks damned tired there...and Steve, Jebus Cripes, looks like a tree with blond hair. And since when did Ray shave off all his hair? Doesn't it get freaking cold in California during the winter...at all? Even a little bit?

While we're on the subject of Hubbard, he looks particularly scary in that picture. I know, I mean - I know Hubbard is generally a scary person, but he looks exceptionally kooky in that picture.

Your ass better show up this summer for GEDDON OH FIVE. It's only cross country plane ride Groove, get it together!

Spoon's getting old and is starting to settle down. No more wild cutoff sweatpants anymore.

I look damn rugged and you know it.

Ray's a giant douche. A fuzzy giant douche. Actually it's 75 degrees year round but sometimes it gets cloudy or drizzles.

Hubbard flew in on his gun/spaceship integration, The S.S. Hubbard. Don't ask.

(ps that war was fun.)

Looks like you guys had a pretty good time, I'll see about Geddon.

So, we've all been sick as dogs, and I wasn't able to edit the war footage until now.

Here's a preview. Please right-click and save to your hard drives.

Music video coming soon!

What format is that made for. It won't work in windows media player or quicktime for me.

Ya, that worked. I wish our "clan"(I speak for my self) could come to one of the "big" wars. But, a six hour drive or a $800 plane ticket bill doesn't seem like the kind of thing we youngins(Not literally, sort of) would want to do.

Great preview, can't wait to see the entire thing!

Yeah, echinacea is good stuff, proven to increase the white blood cell count.

Don't forget that the cold virus, for whatever reason, can't survive in a Zinc environment. Cold Eeze! Seriously.

That was so awesome.

My favorite part by far was the whole, "HORSE RECTUM! HORSE RECTUM!!!" scene. Ah, man - that had me laughing for quite a while. Awesome job, Julie!
