AS SOON AS I CAN, (may be when I'm 16 ) I WILL REALLY DO THIS.
Don't delete this thread, because there's some awesome nerfing advice later on.

Get ready to die *expletive*.
Hey. This is Lefty of The Merry Men of Michigan (Detroit area). We might just drive over, Ann Arbor's only like 45 minutes away and gas is down. So let me tell Uriel to check this thread out. If we come there'll probably be 3-5 of us.

I'm 20. I'm in my senior year of college, pursuing my mechanical engineering degree at Lawrence Technological University in Southfield. I don't think my parents have ever been to a war so I imagine they wouldn't be up for this one. If it would help I'd be willing to call your mom and talk about all our past wars and discuss anything under the sun (I'd actually be up for a decent discussion of philosophy or economics if she's interested). If you think that might work, PM me requesting my phone and I'll pipe it over to you.
Also, my mom suddenly is not to keen on any of you NIC guys coming... She says it is not a good idea to invite all these kids you don't know, and she is responsible for all my friends and stuff. If you are interested in coming, please state your age, who might come with you, where you live and whether your parents could come. Unfortunatly she says that only kids around my age might be able to come, and a bunch of other random stuff. Bah, who understands parents anyways...
Don't be discouraged, though. I will try everything I freakin' can to keep this war on track. More news tommorow.
MMM nerfers- when is your next war? If I went to one and my parents saw that you guys were cool and all then we would have better luck next time for sure. Is it always in march, or are there others? Uriel- we would start at about that time... but I dunno, my mom is going crazy right now... Of course, we could make some stuff up, and have some people just 'tag along' and maybe somebody older could be a neighbor who offered to drive and decided to stay because it sounded fun...

He's a junior but wutevs.
I would also be most likely taking "Exterminator" who is I believe a senior like southpaw.
Veggie, someone skanked "uriel" out from under me on these boards when I first joined, hence the name discrepancy.

I am currently planning a Michigan Nerf war, hosted by our newly formed clan, the Michigan Mafia. A lot of us are new to Nerf, but we are planning about 10 clan members coming. (Not including any NIC people) Our age range is about 14-15, with a few exceptions. (siblings/parents)
The date is not permanent, but I'm looking at October 15th. That's a Sunday, and for us it's the day after homecoming. I don't know about length, because my parents don't want to sit around Pioneer for that long. The minimum will probably be four hours.
GAH!!!! The secretary talked to me on Monday and she said that the district does not want us to Nerf at Pioneer. I will try Shinny's Nerf letter, and find a backup location. (The only thing the damn school people think about is not getting sued...)
The location is currently Ann Arbor Pioneer, my school. There are about 20 portables with asphalt and boardwalks between them on one side of the school. Its a lot like the 'Geddon location, but if I'm correct it is bigger. I have permission to Nerf there, but its sorta sketchy. I talked to the secretary in the main office and she said if she did not get back to me by the end of the week (already passed) then it was okay. I hope to get clearer confirmation tomorrow.
Eye protection is mandatory, No singled titans, sm5ks, or anything with similar power. Homemades I need to see to okay. Basically common sense rules. We will be playing a variety of games and whatever is suggested. I will have basic modding stuff, as well as chalk, duct tape, a whistle, hot glue, and all that other good stuff.
Bring a sack lunch, baggy/warm clothes (this is Michigan, and my guns are powerful) and a Nerf attitude. As far as directions go, the school is right across from Michigan Stadium, so it should be relatively easy to find.
I am the only modder in our clan, and I have about 20 working, modified guns. My friends have a few more that I have also modded. The advantage to this is that we all use the same barrel types and stefans. Our airguns are 9/16 brass or crayola, and spring guns are 17/32 brass or cpvc. Anybody who is coming single is welcome to use one of ours if theirs our not compatible but if another clan is coming (which would be REALLY COOL , providing I gat get my parents to okay it,) then I would prefer if they brought guns/darts too. The location sure is big enough.
I am also the only dartsmith in our clan, and I have about 150 good darts. (stefans), and I am consistently making 50-75 every weekend along with modding some guns I got off eBay. We will not be using stock darts unless we desperately need darts. ( I have 100 taggers) it looks like it will be easy to find darts, so that should not be much of a problem.
I checked the Nerf frappr map and was happy to see quite a few nerfers in the area. Michigan nerfers, don't hesitate to post if you can/cannot come, or if you would like more info. Next weekend I will go with a few friends to test out the area, take pictures and to make sure we don't get kicked off by custodians or anything...
So far the people who may be able to come are:
Poo, maybe, a few friends,
Lefty, Uriel, and other 3M members
I will talk to my parents and see if you all can come. Poo has pretty much been okayed, but they would like his parents to come or at least talk to them.
Yeah, sorry Veggie, my friends called me that school long before I had even heard of nerf, and I did not come up with the MM name.

MY PARENTS ARE NUTS!!!!! *expletive* repeat, repeat, etc.
Yesterday I was talking to both of them about letting y'all come.... and they TOTALLY SHOT DOWN MY FREAKING NERF WAR!!!!!!! They just got worse and worse....
First they said poo could come if his parents came,
Then they said no NIC people could come at all
Then they said that I am too obsessed with Nerf and too involved in this site... so they DISCONNECTED MY FREAKIN INTERNET so that's why I haven't posted in awhile,
Then they said that even if I got permission to do the war at Pioneer that I couldn't and I had to have it at my house with only my friends, and my yard is just a field with beds we cant walk in, and thin trees.
Then they said I could not use any extremely modified guns, and that's half of my arsenal (but Ive used them before with no problems....
I hate it how parents don't give you good explanations why you can't do things and they keep making things worse and worse.
I would post 5 lines of pissed-off faces, but there's a limit...
GOD I AM PISSED OFF!!!!
Now that I know there are people interested in coming the SECOND I get the chance I will start up another war, and will do every freakin thing I can to go to someone else's in Michigan, So 3M members, or anybody else, can you PM me about any upcoming wars, will be greatly appreciated.
Well, I tried everything I could, but it didn't work.

Is there a difference?
Nerfers are pretty much universally really great guys, or really big nerds
