24th is best, but I can't say that I'll be there even if it is then, but I couldn't make the 23rd.

The little critters of nature, they don't know that they're ugly. That's very funny, a fly marrying a bumble bee. I told you I'd shoot, but you didn't believe me. Why didn't you believe me?

I might be able to come. My parents might not let me though, so no promises. If i could come, i might bring...

- Tribarrel speedloader CPVC couplered nite finder
- CPVC couplered lanard blast bazooka
- CPVC couplered airtech 2000
- Stock RF20 (probably won't use it)

Hopefully there is no problem with that LBB. Truth is, all i will most likely use is the airtech and the nite finder.

The only problem I see with both of the dates is that Friday is Black Friday, the day when every psycho is on the roads trying to save a buck or two. Hell, it took me over an hour last Black Friday to get from a store to my house. The trip only takes about 15 minutes on average.

The next day, Saturday, should be called Dark Saturday as most stores now continue their beginning of the Christmas season sales on Saturday with even more early morning deals. The roads, in recent years, have been just as bad as Black Friday.

If it was on a different weekend, I would say yes, but the dates you have chosen are too risky for Maryann, myself and my new car to make the trek for a war. Sorry.

Sorry guys i can't make it to the war. At first my parents said they might take me. Then a few hours later they changed their minds due to the fact that they think you guys might be "pedofiles". :)

I completely understand why most people want to have the war on the 24th. Under normal circumstances I would agree with you. However, I refuse to drive back on the 25th. The interstate is bumper cars all the way to school. Last time I tried the Sunday after Thanksgiving, it took 13 hours (normally 7.5 hour ride).

I would like to say that although this is probably my favorite war of the year, I don't think I can make it. I already sacrificed my anniversary for DEAL, and a day in Baltimore for the last DCNO. If I even THINK of mentioning this to my girlfriend, I think she will definitely whoop my ass something fierce. So, I hope everyone has a kick ass time. Sorry I won't be able to make it. If something comes up, you'll be the first to know about it.

No, the war will stay on turkey day weekend. It has traditionally been a small war with the NJ guys who are back home from college at that point. It's a good last war of the season before Reckoning. Good players at a good size war on a favorite field.

Me and my group, as of now, will be coming. Either date is fine, Saturday is best.

And, when is Reakoning? It would be nice to know as early as possable.

EDIT: Nevermind.

Reckoning usually occurs in early January, when college is still off for winter break. More than likely Evil or I will get that planning going before the beginning of December, but I'd like to discuss a couple things with him first.

Numbers:

(1?) Friday - TIS? (You really didn't say if you could make this for sure or not).
(5+Fireshot's "group") Saturday - DarkShrimp, Pete, tailbone, Fireshot, Evil
(1) Don't Care - Rambo
(5) Can't Make Either - Badger, CS, Smash, shadow, OMC

Sounds like Saturday is best - can someone make a decision please?

Definitely won't be able to make this one. I'll be spending quality time with the family in Virginia, and it'd be an extra hour and a half added onto my usual trek. Looking forward to Reckoning, though.
