Where: Goffle Brook Park, Hawthorne, NJ. (check back in this post for directions).


The actual name of the park is Kings Pond Park, north of the Goffle Brook Park printed on maps. [Therefore located in Ridgewood/Glen Rock instead of Hawthorne]

Even if you still show up at the wrong park, you can tell if it is right or not. Large rolling fields surrounded by major roads = no, large forest, pond, one field, and composting lot at the end of the road = yes.

Simply put, follow Lakeview Ave until it ends.



-There will be a huge sale after the war for trading, selling, and buying guns. Brings some money if you want to get yourself some new nerf weapons.


It would be much more useful if the sale occured before the war. :lol:

Some Pictures of the Park:

Posted Image

Part of the "Heights."-A steep area along the west bank of the brook.

Posted Image

The view from the top of the position in the previous picture.

Posted Image

The general terrain of the east bank: steep to gradual forest sloping down to the brook.

Posted Image

The treehouse.

Posted Image

An abandoned building, the best one.

Posted Image

The pond near the main entrance.

Posted Image

View at the top of one of the trails on the east bank.

Posted Image

The composting lot located near the entrance of the park.

Posted Image

Another view from the Heights.

Posted Image

The Upper Dam. [There's two, but this is the more important one]

Hey, thanks for the pics duxburian. One question though....is it possible to have like "bunker wars" in the composting lot? It looks like you can use the hills as cover while firing at others. And I beleive this composting lot is in bounds, correct? Thanks.

Certainly, they are waiting to be used. As long as it is sunny and dry, otherwise that lot is nasty. It is, after all, a composting lot. :rolleyes:

I also have to get down to the park to see how high the water is at the dam. If it's at normal level, I have to find a new board to lie across it for people to cross. Or if you have good reflex strength you can jump the gap like I do...

Those pictures are actually quite old [Fall 2004], but nothing much has changed. Still looks near exactly like it does in the pictures.

Wow, that place is amazing. Thanks for pics.

Who would've thought it's in Hawthorne? (I think thats what you said, right?)

Dux: Sorry about Sunday. I was in New York State, going to come down to Jersey for the war, But it looked to rainy for me to drive 40 minutes and then just turn around again.

Thanks again.

If someone goes to the Goffle Brook Park in Hawthorne/Glen Rock by error, following the brook north will take them into the correct Kings Pond Park in Glen Rock/Ridgewood. It is a really obvious change, since the official Goffle Park is open fields vs our park is heavily wooded.

Do we have a date yet?

Sunday probably won't work for me.
Actually, it won't at all. So Saturday April 1st good for everyone?

Someone should bring a digital camera. (mines busted)

You've gotta read this entire thread dart if you are interested in everything. We have already discussed the date, so please read back. Anway, yes, we should definitely get someone to take pics or even video tap this war. Maybe we could get it posted in the Gallery section of its good enough...we'll see.

My friends and I are involved with video/TV production at/outside of school. We have like 5 cameras, so that's no problem.

Speaking of the date, I have a track meet on the 1st. Good thing it is at home, and somewhat early. So I don't think we can start as early as hoped. Perhaps noon? or 1? Saying that I have a huge Nerf war to go to isn't going to fly with my coach.

How about we keep the times, and so the rest of us can start at the normal time and nerf for awhile...there will be plenty of people to still have a war. Then when you are finished, you can join in. I don't think rescheduleing the war is necassary since you can still make it. Let me know your thoughts on this.

I'm kinda important to my team...but good thing we have more than one commander. As long as we can still muster a good amount of people, the war could go off at the agreed time. A few other members are also affected by the track meet, so they will arrive with me then.

Ok, after pestering my clan somewhat, this is an updated list of who on my team can go...

Me, Dart, Terron, Sam, Bulb. That's definate (Until the call me the day before; "Uhm yeah, about that war tomorrow...")

Maybes: My friend Paul, Ilzszil, Jake.

Oh, one suggestion, we should come up with a rain date. After that one war died because of the weather, I now have a fear of rain + war.

I will be putting up a calendar in just a few minutes. Let me know if any info needs to be changed. This is the start of a more sophisticated system I am in the process of working on.

More on that later.

Park location = Ridgewood/Glen Rock instead of Hawthorne. Since there is a large park in Hawthorne just downstream, that would create a lot of confusion. They will be looking for Lakeview Dr and not finding it since it isn't down there. ^_^

NB: Lakeview Dr is off of Lake Ave, don't confuse them! I will be making directions from the major highways tomorrow.

Sorry bout that.

I meant to ask if we have an exact set time yet.
I think you guys said 11:00 to 5:00?

11:00 to ~5:00, but I won't be able to make it until around noon or 1, depending on when our relay is up and how fast I can get from the track to the battlefield.

Wow, only one week until the war!! Heres an update/bump of the information of the war:


When: Saturaday, April 1st (possibly April 2nd, depends on how many people want
to show up for second day). Rain date must still be discussed. Possibly following Saturday. Please post opinions on this.

Time: 11:00AM-5:00PM. Try to get there at 10:30AM to have time to set up and
organize teams. Duxburian and most of his team are arriving at 1:00PM. The rest of the team should be on time.

Where: Kings Pond Park, Ridgewood/Glen Rock, NJ. (check back in this post for directions).

Food- Be sure to bring money for your own lunch. As duxburian said, there is a
Burger King right down the street in case you want to eat there. Also,
bring lots of water to keep hydrated for the day.

Clothing/Protection- Bring eye protection....we don't want anyone to get hurt. Also,
camo is optional. Since this war is mostly going to be in the
woods, I am going to wear some camo.

-There will be a huge sale *before* the war for trading, selling, and buying guns. Brings some money if you want to get yourself some new nerf weapons.

-High powered modded guns and homemades will be tested the day of the war and will either be approved or not for use in the war.

-We will be playing many game varients, and rules will be stated for each gametype on the day of the war. CTF may also be played. Please reply in this topic if anyone has some flags or old, different colored rags we could use.

-Make sure you bring plenty of ammo, whether it is homemade stefans or stock darts, make sure you have plenty of it that will last you the day.

These are the people that we know of attending this war:

Duxburian- bringing 4-8 nerfers
OMC- + more nerfers
Evil
Darkshrimp
Tenesee23- comming with darkshrimp
liljoe- comming with darkshrimp
theyellowdartmti- bringing 4-8 clan members including Akeris, Terron, Sam, and Bulb
z80
myself, lilsniper...and bringing one friend (not member of the forums)

Possible Nerfers Comming with Akeris and Dart:
Paul
IlzszIl
Jake

-expect around 20-30 people at this war.

If you can come to the war and you are not on the list, please tell me and I will add you. If you are on the list and cannot come, let me know and I will remove you.

Please let me know if I forgot anything. All of the above information can change between now and the war. Please keep updated with this topic to know the most recent changes, if any. If needed, I will update this post once every week leading up to this war. Thanks alot guys!!

My clan's pnuematic cannons will enforce order at this event. :P So if undesirable people are thinking of coming, think again...

I'm writing written directions for the highways around the area, so be patient.
