October 27th will accommodate the most people, so we'll lock that date in.

Crankymonky is checking on the status of Wayside. If Wayside isn't available, we'll be using another local school as our main venue.

Mark your calendars now. Details on definite location to follow.

Okay, Sorry for not being able to help earlier.

I checked the current status of Wayside and it's going under a complete rehaul in the back. So the gauntlet as we knew it is now officially deceased. However, it appears that the new layout could be equally exciting to play on, but it's too early to say. Either way, it won't be ready for at least many a month, I would guess at least 6.

I hope to get a chance to snap photos of another venue about 20 minutes from Wayside and put them up by Friday. Jordan and I will try and keep in contact to arrange the war.

As some of you know, I will most likely not be in attendance of this war, no matter what the date. I have an exceedingly busy schedule for the next month while I work on transferring schools.

Jordan, I think you may have the wrong phone number for me as I never got any calls from me, I'm sending it to you via Facebook.

I hope this shapes up to be an awesome war and I'll be doing what I can to find a venue.

Eh. The 27th. I have a soccer game at 10:30 so I will be getting there about 12:30 or so which really sucks.

I will definitely be there. I will most likely be staying with Rosie if it all works out, so for this one, my fellow NJers are going to have to work out transport themselves.

Updated the attendees in the original post. If anyone is indeed carpooling please give us a ballpark figure of how many people will be coming with you. Our numbers are looking somewhat small, but that's not factoring in how many would be coming with Cmdrmack and Co.

Like Cranky mentioned, Wayside (AKA, "The Gauntlet") is undergoing heavy construction and won't be available in the near future. Talk about a major bummer...On the bright side, we have other options in the immediate area which look promising. Cranky gave me a link to these today, and we've Nerfed here in '05, so we can probably use it again. Anywho, the pictures:

One last thing for me to say- I may need to borrow a primary. My idiot friends never count the damned pumps. Guess how many tanks they've blown?! EIGHT!!!

Lionhead, as we get closer to the date, if you still need a primary remind me. I have some stuff you could use. If you like pump guns, I could mod a AT2K for you (single shot) without the pump plugged and let you use that. Let me know what kind of gun you're looking for.

If you want, I could even trade you the AT2K for 100 stefans, seeing as I really doubt I'll have a whole lot of darts come the event. PM me and we'll work something out.

I would like to buy a nice single primary. Like maybe a modded Bigshot to shoot micros/stephans. Or anything thats similar that can reach 90-100Ft. And 100 stephans. I'll think of something to bring as a trade maybe.
I love imports.

Shorty, I too have an EAB I'll sell. I'll work on it to see how high I can get the ranges. I'll give you the I actually nerf discount and sell it for 7 bucks, or 50 stefans. Let me know if you're interested.

The location of the school in the pictures I posted is no more than a 10 minute drive from Wayside.

Crankymonky has found what seems to be an even better site that is about 15 minutes from Wayside, and resembles the original Gauntlet much more. Pictures will be uploaded later this week. I apologize for the lack of "concrete-ness" regarding location information, but you have to understand that our main venue is unavailable and I'm trying my best to get us something that resembles a DCNO, not just a "backup" school.

The bottom line is that no matter which school we decide upon, they are ALL within very close driving distance from Wayside (the site of the original "Gauntlet") and still located in Rockville. That roughly translates into 10-15 more minutes of driving and slightly different directions than what you're used to. Going to try to decide upon a definite location by early next week.

Uhmm, EAB? if it goes 100+Ft, I'll get it. Is it spring or air powered? But yeah $7 sounds very generous for a modded primary. $7 it is. You are gonna be there right?
