Alright. Possible dates need to be given now.

From the last time I saw everyone I was hearing late Jan. Like, in a week or so. Obviously, not a whole lot of time to plan for that, so, I'm thinkin late Feb myself. Preferably on a Saturday.

So? Thoughts, questions, concerns? Hows my driving?

Spoon has refused to attend any further YANOs until we change the location so I'm waiting for someone to take me up on my request for a new locale. Of course Spoon has been stating this for several YANOs now so who knows...

I'm game for a war, but I'm not going to drive around socal looking for a good place to hold it.

I don't know of much in the way of areas down there in Irvine.

Now, the new CAFF location is really working out well. Granted, it's all the way up here in Glendora, so I don't think you'd want to move YANO that far from Irvine. It can be a heck of a drive. But it does have an urban area like the one at Venado, plus a tree-filled park next door, two playgrounds, some open fields, basketball courts, handball walls, table/bench combos, etc.

Granted, we may not even make this next war. No, I take that back. I'll go, and might bring a guy or two with me, but I need some time off from modding clan guns and such, and would like to be able to just go out, make my own darts, and play.

So whenever's good with me, really, as band season's over. If I come across any good locations, I'll fill you in, but I'm not really sure just how far you're wanting to go. Are you hoping to stay in Irvine, or would a reasonable commute be okay?

I'm going to go check out a local High School that I haven't really visisted before and see what's up there as a possible alternate for a CAFF location. If it ends up having as much variety as Venado, then I'll get back to you on that one.

I swear that if you guys get one set up I'll bring myself and some of the NARFers this time, but I need to know the date ASAP, about half of us have jobs, and the rest are in skool of some sort and we need to know at least 2 weeks in advance as to get ourselves free to get there. I don't have any ideas for a new location, but The location of the last CAFF, was prety good.

could you throw up some pictures? maybe they already exist and i'm just lazy. glendora is fine with me, its much closer than irvine. if i'm remembering correctly, glendora is pretty central to where most people are, except it makes the trip from san diego probably 30 minutes longer. the nice thing about glendora is that its right near the 210, 605, and 57. anyway, i'm a second-semester senior very soon so i'm definately down for a war.

The Fall CAFF Location Has Pics Here, in the original thread And Also in it's recap thread I'm prety sure that's the CAFF location that Falcon was talking about. great place for a war, the park has lots of trees and the urban area is good too.

I've been itching for a nerf war in the worst way, a couple of kids and I can make it up from San Diego any time next month, maybe like the 18th or 25th.

The weekend of the 18th is hosed for us. There is a Scottish Gathering/Games at the Queen Mary in Long Beach I'm competing at on the 18th and 19th. If we're discussing dates, I'll check on the 25th when I get home. March 4th would also be acceptable, but if you guys are really itching for a war, I don't know how long you're willing to wait.

First off, I'd just like to state that I never refused to attend another YANO unless the location changed. It was merely a strict request.


That said, Glendora is just dandy with me. The location pics and urban area look good. Not many of us are even from Orange County anymore anyway.


February is a bit tough for me as I'm on a shoot, so the first weekend I'd be available would be Feb 24th-25th. March is totally open but I don't want to wait that long if I don't have to.

Have you guys ever been kicked out of that Glendora urban area?

How is Feb 25th for everyone?

Within the first 15 min of CAFF, but falcon knows the custodians now so I think we're good there.

the 25th sounds good right now for me and I'll start bouncing the date around with my group. My only problem may be the fact that it's 2 day before my B-day and my family will probably plan something around that weekend, But since I know this far in advance, I think I'll be able to avoid that.

We got booted because it was three days after the first day of school, Memorial day, and there was a teacher there who decided to be an arse. He walked over and told us that the neighbors were probably going to call the police. We explained their lack of airsoft/paintball-ness, and he said that they probably wouldn't anyway, but that he didn't ahve a problem. It was our deal. I was thinking no further problems.

Then the retard decided to park his freaking SUV in the middle of the area, walk into one of the classrooms, and start working with his door open. So naturally, with the car in the way, we had to move.

If we decide to have it at Cullen, I'll go the day before and speak with he custodians so they understand. They think the concept of High Schoolers playing with kid's toys is hilarious, and they're more than willing to work around us. I just have to tell them ahead of time, and they'll work in that area when we're on lunch. Also, they leave campus every day by 3:00, so then the entire place is completely open.

Regardless of the custodians, the park next door is always open, as nobody ever really uses it anymore, plus the fact that it's grassy, has a playground at the center, and has quite a number of trees spread throughout. When we bring out about 12 yard-waste trash cans and set them upside-down in random spots around the area, it makes for an excellent balance of cover, so CTF the almost always well balanced (save for teams themselves). If we find a spot that's too hard to assault, and too easy to defend, we can just move things. If we really want to, we can change the area every round.

So thereís lots of flexibility with the grounds in general. If we feel adventurous, etc., we can go and use the large playground on the school campus that is surrounded by woodchips and then a massive grassy area. Heck, we can use the grass itself and set up trash cans, though that limits what we can do to flat ground and trash cans; less variety in the course that way...

The Urban area isnít quite as open and free as the one at Venado, but it is really fun to play. There are some handrails that keep it from being an unrestricted central corridor going in both directions, but it still has some walkway ramps with rails and things of the like as seen at Venado. Also, the ground changes height at several places in the area, making things again more interesting. Some park benches in the middle of the central corridor going one direction keep play from being restricted to using corners as cover. There are a few obstacles around the outside of the area such as a large steel box, a small enclosed block wall (akin to the outside end of one of the traps at the Alamo), a brick enclosure with trash dumpsters in it, a fairly large tree at one end in the grass, and a set of two storage sheds on the other end, which are accompanied by an old dysfunctional furnace.

Now that Iíve really gone over the top in describing the crazy place, if thereís anything else I havenít covered that youíre concerned about, by all means, just ask. I donít really care if we use Glendora or not, but I figured if we want this to happen soon, we had better find a location sooner.

If you guys are willing to go for it, Iím definitely up for another friendly chat with the local custodial staff. Itís not like Iím going to complain about the location...itís a two minute jog from my house.

So if you guys are up for it, just let me know.

The weekend of the 25th would be wonderful. I donít know about attendance in my clan, but thereís still some work some of them need to do on their guns, because I have officially set them free. Any other work needed to be done on their guns (aside from repairs at a war) is their responsibility. *sigh* Freedom is a wonderful thing...

So yeah...If the 25th works out for all of you, Iím game. Heck, weíre all game. Half my group is dying to pull a trigger again, so if it ends up being here, I know I can guarantee a larger turnout form us than at the last YANO...Like 10-15.

Later!

Yours in Foam,

-Falcon

Well, thats all nice to hear. Ironically, it is no loner, nor shorter of a drive for me. So, it don't matter to me much. Now, on a higher note...I guess I'll kidnap Daniel for you all, considering we live in the same house, it shouldn't be too hard. Um, someone will need to pay me for the duct tape rolls, he's a big guy.




PS. Kevin will never show his face again, due to...well, for lack of a better term, we broke up. He's lucky I didn't punch his lights out though. Sadly though, I think in the end it was over a girl. O well, I'm marrying her!

For now, that looks like a good date for me. I will need a few days to absolutely make sure, but that's one of the best days for me in February.

Well crap...

I have a performance audition in San Diego at 1:00 on the 25th.

Are there any other days that work well for people? I don't mean to be one to change everything, but nobody else in my group has spoken with the Janitors, so yeah...

Damnit.

We're in.

I might be a tad bit late due to church in the morning and/or being tired from the audition+the trip there & back, but we'll be there.

Can I assume we'd be getting together around 10:00 as usual?

And we won't even have to worry about the Janitors, bcause they don't work on Sundays. More power to us...

Looks good for me, if there are any problems, they'll be the same as the would be for the 25th. since it's a weekend that counts in most of NARF, so I'll toss the date to my crew and we'll go from there. I'll be back with that info in a few days.

Who haven't we heard from now, besides Spoon and AnyaSeijin regarding the 26th?

I just need to know a final relatively soon so I can make sure the place is clear.

EDIT:

I just remembered about this whole deal...

Cx, are you planning to bring those pyramids we used last summer at "geddon? If you could that'd be nice. Not necessary, but nice.

Also, unless you have other plans, I can have the flags themselves taken care of. I have a new idea that fits with our area for the placement and use of flags. It's straightforward, but a little more convenient and visible location-wise.

Just some thoughts/questions I figured I should raise...
