Good news! I've got work off so we can go much later now. I changed the end time to "6:00 PM or whenever we feel like." Sound good to everyone?

We still need more people in general. I love nerfing with the few that showed up at NO SPAM, but the more the merrier, right? Ask anyone/everyone you know, online or off, and be sure to make your plans official. A big attendance isn't worth anything if nobody actually shows up.

Sorry, we most likely won't be going. Too far, so we decided to host our own war. Maybe we will see you guys at Farmageddon this summer.


I apologize for the posting date, but does "Farmageddon" take place in Farmington?

Hey, can anybody find the NO SPAM recap thread? I'm trying to get some pics up of the playground but can't find the thread. :( Thanks.

Sam, if you have any pics of the pavilion you want to contribute, that'd be nice too.

The Pavillion pictures were deleted when I was cleaning out my photobucket. I'll try to get around to getting some new ones. Also I may have found another possible location. We'll still meet at the Highland 9 area though.

Well, my options are to A.) Bus hop there. Total trip time will take about an hour, and I'm not sure on those schedules because I've never been on those routes. Also it's the weekend too :unsure: B.) If somebody could pick me up & drop me off. The location doesn't sound like it's amazingly far from the U of M. I am on the St. Paul campus too, so that's closer to the war zone too.

Where are we at on turnout? I know that I could positively bring one friend, maybe a couple. If I get really lucky, I could bring my dorm's Nerf clan, but that would be a challenge.

Well unfortunatly I will not be able to make it. I'm going out of town and don't get back until 7:30
PM on the day of the war. So unless you guys are willing to move then date back I will not be able to come.

LOTR, I bet I could pick you up. My car isn't looking too full at the moment. Could you PM me an address so I can double check?

Sam... ahm. Does the Saturday 7 days beforehand work?
Does that change work for everybody else?

I've made the date tenative again.

Dang. Well Iono then. I vote the week after.

EDIT: Actually, this would probably work better for my clan. Most of them are gone over spring break so the weekend after is going to be better.

Any objections to April 14th?

So we are thinking the week after spring break now? I dunno... if it was on a Saturday, Knut would probably be having a morning play practice so Luke and I would be there until (at the latest) 1:00 ... so we might be able to do an afternoon one. Ugh! :unsure: this is getting annoying!

Okay. The 14th it is then.

Elf, Luke can drive. You two come on up when you can.

That means more room in the car for me, which means LOTR can have a ride.

Okay guys, let's try and get ya'll official around mid-March. That gives you one month to call all your employees and girlfriends for the day off, one month to convince your parents I'm not a stalker, and one month to organize rides and set aside some gas money.

Now I personally could do all that in a day...

Well, the map restarted itself so there's only like three people in MN. I've got one, Brendan (EbolaMuteOne) on the potentials list but can't figure out how to get a hold of this Shivon character. If anybody else wants to give it a go the link is in my sig.

The 14th works for me. Ride situation sounds good. Flaming Hilt, you are about to be PMed. Excellent, I'm looking forward to it. Anybody got a cam? We should make a vid of it too.

I've got a pretty decent Sony camera that can take videos, I think. Someone else should bring one if they've got one.
As for that Shivon character, he's a buddy of mine. I'll talk to him when we get closer to the date. All though if one of you guys e-mailed him he'd probably be more likely to come.

The frapper map died? Thats not so good... someone should start a topic here and on NHQ about it.

Sam, IF I can come, I have a pretty nice camera I could bring.

Messiah, what do you mean by "noob squad"? Are they just fresh meat, or are you in need of weapons? If it is the latter, I am sure we could easily provide.

And if you do actually mean "fresh meat," then you still have 2 months to practice...

Yea, Elf, we may need to caravan... chances are more of the NS can come now it's not over break, and LOTR can bring more than himself if we can give the car space. Think Luke would do it?

Sam, I would e-mail him but you have to log in to frappr to send messages, and while I put myself on the map I can't seem to log in for whatever reason. I know, it's weird. If it helps at all though, give him our regards.

Well FH, we aren't exactly in practice either. I mean seriously, when was the last time that we nerfed? like August or something?

Well, Saturday play practice usually gets out around 1:00, we still need to eat lunch, and it is about an hours drive from here to there... I think that Luke would want to do it, but it is more of a thing of him having the time to do it. Poor guy, he is taking 4 AP classes. We will see though. Ask him tomorrow in Calc. or something.

We aren't in practice, but we're experienced. A pre-war the weekend beforehand will shape us up in no time. I meant if they had played very little or not at all.

Sure wasn't August...

Alright. I'll try and remember; I bet he can be convinced.

Otherwise I think we're good. Just try and get more people, I supposed, and if you're on the potentials list then get yourself on the official list. I can't think of anything else we need to do at the moment.
