Post here or pm me if you would like to come. The more the merrier. If you do not have an account yet, you can contact me through Forsaken_angel24@hotmail.com

I will edit this first post when more confirmations and info comes in.

Any Americans want to come up here?
It would be interesting to see if any of the old Canadian Nerfers show up.

Here is the satellite view.

It has washrooms with sinks and soap.
Looks like awesome grounds for a Nerf war.
Onto the photos.

Hell yeah, I`m in. I might be able to convince Gyrvalcon to come along. Being a conservation area, do they allow camping?

Also, we need to get some rules laid out, what is and isn`t allowed. Obviously eye protection is mandatory; what guns won`t we allow?
I`m all for no singled titans, or any other high out-put guns of that sort. However, majority rules, so we have to reach a consensus. Anybody?

Edit:
SOME RULES:
1) Singled Titans still undecided.
2) Eye protection is a must. Eyeglasses alone for 18+. Under 18 requires additional eye protection. It's for your own safety.
3) Working on it...

Only 7 1/2 hours away. Leave at 2 AM... Start at 10 AM. Eh...
Id love to come, I might even have my full license by then so I'll have a ride but theres still the money factor and the parent factor.
I'll start talking to my friends to see if anyone else is up for the trip.
It doesn't look like I'm getting to Hershfest so this would be great.
I don't know put my down as an extreme maybe at this point.

Hmm. It's close to Buffalo, but I don't think I could get there. I'll just have to settle for hoping that everyone isn't too tired to come to the MiniCon war we're going to run on the 28th. :)

I know I won't be able to make this as I have my brother's bar mitzvah, but maybe the rest of my 50 person clan can (/sarcasm).

Prometheus: Unfortunately the parks close at 11:00 around here. So sleeping in the field isnt going to work.
I don't want to ban any guns except for a singled Titan. Everything else should be fine. If it shoots under 150' then I am fine with it.

Skitzo, it would be awesome if you could make it. If you wanted to come down the day before and spend the night somewhere I am sure we could work something out.

Yazzeh: Montreal is only 5 hours away and you don't even have to cross the border. In 2 months and 4 days I am sure you would be able to finish a decent primary and side arm as well as make at least 100 darts in that time frame.

Thom: I believe Buffalo is only 2 hours away. Do your best to get out here.

I will have directions edited into the first post in the next few days. I also took some video footage of the park.
I may have a video up later too.

Yes, yes, I am aware of how close I am. Unfortunately, I don't have a driver's license or a car. Or much money... (Think in the 20's of dollars). I would be very interested in coming, but alas, my parents won't drive me, none of my driving friends are interested in Nerf enough to go with me and I don't have the cash to get there any other way. Some day, when I'm about 21 or something, I'll break free of my restraints. And perhaps even get a job.

Haha... yeah... sure.

Aww, crap! Some guys get a Canadian Nerf War going, and it's in Ontario. Sucks for us BCers, anyway. But maybe one day we'll make it out there, one day...

Hey, next year I'm open for any wars, be it 'geddon, Apoc, or some ho-down in BC. But right now we've looked at where we have a large concentration of nerfers. Ontario has 1/3 of Canada's population (last time I checked), so Ontario it is.

FA24: No prob, I'll get a greyhound night bus home. Then I can sleep on the drive.

As long as the "Boss" aka the wife does not make any plans, myself and at least my oldest son should make it. It will be interesting to see which of FA's newest creations he's working on show up at this war. From those that I have seen in his workshop I cant wait.

I'm still working on the greyhound schedule, but even if worst comes to worst and I could pitch my tent in your yard that'd be awesome. So you'll be there I assume, or do you leave early on that day?

Edit: Right now it looks like I might be able to be there for 11:00 am. I just need to find out where the greyhound station is from the conservation area. My home trip is 8:00pm departure. Might need to tweak it a bit.
Edit 2: See second post for some basic rules.

I am not sure about the Titans part of it. It will be October and we may have light jackets on. I am like 15% to allowing singled Titans. I will allow Titans that have not had their pump plugged. Eye protection is a must for everyone. Glasses are fine for anyone over 18. Anyone under 18 that needs to wear glasses will be required to have some better form of eye protection.

Sure. I'm kinda packed right now, but in the fall, that sounds like a good idea.

Are you going to be able to bring some red foam to the war? I am cheap and prefer not to pay shipping if I can avoid it. I am interested in around 100', depending on $/ft. cost.

I will be bringing some foam to the War. 100 feet for $30 flat. People will get the "I actually go to Nerf wars" discount.

Cs, It would be awesome if you came.

I think I should be able to get at least 5 other friends of mine to come.
It all comes down to me just calling them and willing to mod something for them.
