Venado Middle School, Irvine.

You'd take the 5 north, exit Culver west, and turn left on Deerfield.

Depending on where you are in the SD area it's probably around an hour drive.

Depends on what kind of guns you're using and how you play.

When I use my at3k I tend to shoot quite frequently and generally go through about 40-60 darts per battle. When I use a spring gun I probably only use 20-30 darts per battle.

Either way I expect to have lost half of them by the end of the day so I double whatever I'm expecting to need per battle.

Lots of people don't have enough darts to last a battle and rely on picking up darts while under fire. You can get pretty good at doing this without being overly distracted but you never know how well the ammo you pick up will do in your gun.

Plan on the vast majority of people using micro stefans of various dimensions and quality. If you guns use Nerf micros or megas, you won't be able to use most of the darts that you find during battles.

Last but not least, mark your darts somehow if you want them back at the end of the day. I have a big box full of darts that nobody claimed at the end of the last two wars. Anybody is welcome to use those but most of them suck.

Six. Million. Darts.

Seriously dude, just bring what you think you'll need. If you run out, you run out. Worst thing that will happen is you'll be running around looking for darts instead of shooting people right?

40 is most definitely not enough if you're going to use an RF20. 400 is most definitely excessive. You find a happy medium.

Yea if you're guns use Stefan micros you should only bring about twice what you would expect to need in a 20-30 min battle as there will be plenty on the ground to pick up. If you use megas, nerf micros, or any other kind of dart then you'll want to bring enough to last you the whole day, like three or four times what you'll need in the battle.

No matter how many darts you bring, and no matter what type, EXPECT to lose about half at the war, it's just the way things tend to work.

The simple answer to this dart question though? Bring as many as you can. More is always better.

I have to supply darts for myself, my brother, and for about half the war participants who either don't bring enough darts, or whose darts are unusably shitty. I usually bring 150-200 per war, and usually bring home about 80. For this war I'm going to try to bring about 300. However you only need to supply ammo for yourself and your friends. If you are going to make Stefans though, PLEASE take my advice and TAKE YOUR TIME and make GOOD darts. You'll thank yourself later, trust me. Hope to see you there!

Hey guys, I think things are looking up...I'm probably going to be able to make it. Cxwq & Julie, my parents and I will probably be calling you sometime this week to arrange some the stay stuff, etc.

EDIT: Okay, count me in, I am coming....damn, this is exciting. I had to change my pants twice while typing that post.

This is just peachy. Mark, Jon, and Toj just cancled. Mark is going on vacation, and Jon and Toj have boyscouts. I think I'm still bringing 4 or 5 others, just not sure who. Sam is the only one who is left that can go, which is fortunate that he can still go(I hope). This really sucks, I had a nearly perfect crew set up and now I'm screwed. Sam wanted to bring a friend, maybe he'll be cool. I guess Jeff could come too. If anything, it'll probably just be me, sam, and maybe his friend. I don't want to start fishing for people who might not be as into it.

Okay, I just ordered my plane tickets today.

Looks like it's not going to cost me an arm and a leg after all.

It's going to cost me both, and my left testicle.

I'll be paying this off the entire summer and then some (first I gotta' get a job HAH!)...but hey, at least I get to go to a large-scale war and the added bonus of bragging rights.

i'm still in. 4-5 total headcount.

Groove...do you really want that? Think about it, man. We're talking about Spoon.

Spoon: You tell Groove it's cancelled 2 hours before he leaves and tell everyone else it is, but let them know it's a joke. Then you proceed to have the best Armageddon ever and rub it in his face, complete with pictures and war stories. Nice, eh?

Just kidding, if you can read this. It would be unfortunate if you couldn't.
