I've been thinknig about that too. I'd be willing to play rain or shine, if all of you guys are.
Here is the ten day forecast for the area: Partly cloudy, high temp of 83 degrees/ low temp of 71, 10% chance of precip. Which is almost exactly what the weather is like today. If it is like today it will be perfect, not too hot, not too cold. But just in case I'd like everyone to be prepared for rain.

I would be willing to play in the rain. It would just be a little bit dirtier but the pics would be piss your pants funny (some guy holding a nerf gun and he is half covered in mud :P ) But I just asked cuz it had just started raining where I am. but if the weatherman is right it would be great

Also (alittle off the topic of the war) Carrtoon is there a pic of your multi barreld BBB that I could see? cuz im trying to put an at2k turrent on mine but im having trouble

I tried fitting the gun with 2 NF springs, but they didn't fit. I ended up using the BBB spring and one NF spring. It still has a lot of kick. So much that it shattered the white plastic piece inside the gun. I replaced it with a metal washer and reinforced the plunger head with a metal screw. It's ready!

Yea... I'm just happy we were using the weak springs, and not the strong one. I just hope you don't aim like that during the war.

But dang I'm really dissapointed it leaks... *cries* so much time gone to waste...

Anyways, I have a definite 5 coming as of now. 5 is also the number of seats in my car, so I doubt there will be more. However, I have one person refusing to be around when I call him, and I think maybe I can get a passenger to drive him if he says he'll go. Otherwise, expect 5 from us (including Elf).

Just double checking, is there anyone near SE Minnesota that would like to carpool? I can drive or ride; it doesn't matter. Cheaper is better!

Nope, work fucked shit up for me and I won't be able to make it. I told Sam that if you guys have some fall wars I can definitely make them since I'll be living in Minneapolis for college. Sorry guys. I'm really pissed about it too.

Anyways, have fun! It's good that MN finally has a larger-scale war going down. Keep the interest up in your groups and encourage more people to join in on the fun. Things like this grow, and soon we'll be having the Northern versions of Armageddon and YANO. And it's ok to schedule more than one big war too. It's too bad I can't make it this time, but I look forward to Nerfing with you guys in the future. Just get out and have a ball.

I'm gonna try to get a ride with Carrtoon up to the Twin Cities. I can have 1 or 2 friends in Minneapolis join in on the fun too.

Are their any games people for sure want to play? I know we will be playing CTF and Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch, and Flaming Hilt wants to play Dodgeball. Any other games people want to play?

Although it is already up there I really want to do team stuff and if there are enough people we should have several teams of 4.

Ok sounds good. I don't think we could have more four teams, because of space issues, but we'll se what happens when we get there. We should have 8-10 from me, possibly more, then 8-9 from people not form the cities. So around twenty people.

I vote if we play dodgeball, we use teams of two. And yes, ten team dodgeball would be amazing.

I have some bad news. As it ends up, everybody who said they could come had something come up. One has church, one has to do something for summer camp, one has a behind the wheel, one has a dentist appt., and one has a possessive father. No response from the backups yet but don't count on anything.

Looks like Elf and I will be the only two coming from our clan. Sorry guys.

EDIT: NVM! WoOt! The guy who had a behind the wheel says it's actually on Friday! We now have 3!

...lol...
