Ok so I along with several other nerfers think that we should have another nerf war. So Iím thinking middle of August between the 19th and the 25th from noon and 6-ish. As for the location; my uncle has a 78+ acre lot out a little bit outside of Chaska (donít worry it ainít no farm land but it is surrounded by some). It has a bunch of wide open fields and a huge densely wooded area with paved paths going through it. It also has several garages and buildings we could play around. My uncle has several ATVs, a few Gators 9not the (animals obviously) and a go-cart all of which he would most likely agree to let us use if we agreed to not drive too recklessly. I will get pictures up as soon as I get a chance to get out there and put directions up ASAP. So please state which days you would be able to go and anything else you might need to say. B)

Edit: Oops I forgot to say what to bring :P You should bring two primary weapons (Incase one of them breakes) as well as two pistols, and one sidearm (which can be one of the pistoles) Bring as many stephans as you can that fit your gun. I will bring a hot-glue-gun (with sticks) some superglue and several different sizes of screw drivers.

And because it is such a huge area that we will be playing on I am going to allow the Titan but only for use in a situation where the person shooting is atleast 100 feet away from the person recieving the shot. But I will bring some Disney band-aids just incase we need to heal a boo-boo cuz we all know that they can heal any ailment.

And Janga why the heck would you need a Titan when you can just use your RZB?

For now I am only going to ban one gun: the Titan

Thank god, at least I can bring my single barreled brass Big Bad Titan I got at Target.

Just kidding, I haven't got the single pack, or found it at Target, OR even modded my original N-Strike.


But, I'm down for a war, let me check my work schedule when I get back to Winona and I'll let you know. Carrtoon, what about you?

Count me as a maybe. The 19th probably works best. I'm not sure who I can get to come, but maybe like two or three other people. I could get more, but we all know how that turned out last time. If Janga and Carrtoon come, I'm much more likely to attend.
How far away is it from the cities?
Is the Titan banned no matter what? What about if it shoot Arrow segments, or has a shotgun attachment?

I don't think the Titan should be indefinitely banned. I say that you just bring one if you have it along with a spare in case, and then we can test fire on Janga's stomach to see if it's too powerful.

Otherwise, we can always just limit the pump amount (IE, when playing indoors with my Sm5k, we limit to 2 pumps -- and if you use more, no more Sm5k for you).

Try not to make it on a Tuesday because Tuesday's are Latin Dance days at Famous Dave's, and I'm trying to get one of those in with some friends before school starts up again...

Vehicles would make things interesting. Courses could be twice as big...

You can use the Titan to shoot the missles that it was ment to shoot or you could mod it to shoot BBB arrows. But personally I dont see the point in useing them instead of darts. But I think that I might alow one per team because it is such a huge area that we will be playing in. What say you?

I don't mean shooting BBB arrows, I mean shooting stefans made out of BBB arrows.
Like this. Mongo Stefans!
But, I'll probably have multiple different Attachments. But yeah at least one titan per team sounds good.

Flaming Hilt: When did we stop test firing at your stomach? Latin Dace Days?! That's the funniest thing I've ever heard.

You should proabaly limit the ATVs and such: A: because people could get F---ed up B: it could just turn it in to a game of drive bys.

Also if we could get a date set by this weekend, I should have plenty of time to let my homies know.

Peace out Dawgs

So far it looks like sat the 19th will work the best. I dont think we have to worry about the drive by thing because most of the paths arent wide enough for two 4weelers but yea I think one gator and one 4 weeler per team is good. But if you cause property damage you WILL be held accountable so we are going by a 'you break it you buy it' policy.

Oh so the ATVs and such are limited to paths? Ok then. Can we get some directions. or at least a driving time estimate?

Uhm... y'know... that was... mean... (?) and... JANGA'S stomach... don't you remember at the end of NO SPAM, I thought I had my SOBR-P loaded so I asked him to let me shoot him with it?

Yea... it's more like "we have a dance floor, and we play Latin music, so if you get food you can dance on our floor" day.... What, do you have a problem with people who know how to dance Latin? You gotta admit, the Tango is pretty cool *cough-sexy-cough*...

It sounds like you guys had fun at SPANO. Makes me wish I was there.

Anywho this war would be a push too. I do have an interesting proposition though. I will be living in St. Paul this next year and this fall we could get a few wars in; maybe at the same location as SPANO was. I will be down there around Sept. 1st. I realize school begins for most, if not everyone, but maybe we could set aside a weekend for another one? I'm really itching to dust off my BBB and shoot someone, so let's organize something like that later.

AODL - Chaska is pretty much right next to Shakopee, southwest of Eden Prarie, Shorewood, and Minnetonka. Maybe a half an hour drive from the Twin Cities. I've spent some time down there before and I know my way around a little bit.

Flamining Hilt: Sorry, just picturing you dancing is hilarious.

I have to work on the first at the fair on the 1st, but sometime after that would work maybe.

As long as school doesn't require too much of my free time (it shouldn't in the first quarter), I would be more than happy to go to another NOSPAM on a weekend. A long weekend... even better.

"Flaming Hilt: Sorry, just picturing you dancing is hilarious."

: o` I may have to bring a girl to the next war and show you how it's done... I like to think of myself as rather skilled in the dance area of things, as a matter of fact... but I guess you're entitled to your opinion. : oP

(just in case you missed it: no offense taken. I find it rather funny as well. : oD)

Ok cool.
Yeah the next NO SPAM/SPANO/ anything in my area proabaly won't be until winter (christmas/winter break) if you guys want to play at an indoor paintball place, or maybe a lazer tag place. Basically becasue of school and school related issues. Hopefully I'll be able to have at least one war/event during the school year but I won't know if one is possibl euntil school starts.

Although there will be more events next summer for sure, proabably like once a month.

Do you know where Chanhassen is or where Minnetonka is? The location is about 20min outside of Minnetonka and 15min from Chanhassen.

As for the whole latin dance thing, it is alot of fun and I have gone several times but I prob wont be going again for awhile because I just broke up with my girlfriend but yes I can also dance I know Tango somba, salsa, waltz, some breakdancing, and swing (which is my favorite B) )

Around where Hilt and I live it is very popular/cool for a guy to be able to dance well. And for the record Hilt is a pretty good dancer. :)

Ok so the whole stateing "what days would work for you" thing might be a good idea. So everyone who is interested in coming please state which day(s) between Sat. the 11th and Friday the 25th And also list which times would /wouldn't work for you.

I want to make this work.

Oh yea and I am going on a canoe trip through church from tommarow till thursday so if I'm not responding to your pm's that's why.

I suppose it's late notice, but I only found out recently...

I'll be back in the Twin Cities tomorrow (Sunday) if I can manage, staying until Monday or Tuesday. Let me know if anyone will be up for some MN Nerf.

Monday works -- I have a dentist appointment at 2PM, so it would have to be either really early or really late. But, it works.

EDIT: Also, the closer the better... (see mappť) I'd appreciate 30 mins or less; but of course I know that may not happen since we're all so far apart. And I dunno how many clan members I can round up in such short a time.

But somebody better decide something, and quick.

Well we know somewhere is the twin cities, we could meet at the place that NO SPAM was at, but we don't necassarily has to nerf there. I don't think any earlier than 12 noon, would work, even later than 12 would be best.
