Date: May 12th.
Time: 10 a.m. This means that you should arrive prior to 10.
Location: 22nd Street Park. The official address is 7801 North 22nd Street, Tampa, FL. However, we will be setting up on Park Drive at the other end of the park (7700 block if that helps). If you come in from Patterson, make a right and park at the end of Park Drive.
Here's what Google Maps will show:
Here's what you want:
ROGUE: It's pretty serious......2 seperate "Arenas", one HUGE arena perfect for a LARGE turnout, and one that is about 1/3 that size which worked perfect for the smaller group we had. The best part is that 3/4 of the ENTIRE playing area is shaded almost the entire day.
CARAKKI: This field is excellent, with different areas for larger or smaller groups. It features a trench/ditch/thing, a gigantic field, and a heavily forested area (main arena). Oh, and the river (can't have a Riverside war without it).
^What they said. It's a great field.
Clothing: It's Florida in May. It'll probably be rather hot, but fortunately it won't be too humid yet. Regardless, dress appropriately.
-A Pistol. A pistol is a spring-powered single-shot blaster.
-Anything liable to explode, cut, or otherwise injure any Nerfers
-Singled, plugged Titans. Modified titans must have a minimum of 3 barrels, or be shooting the rocket.
Darts: Stefans or Slugs are allowed. Stefans must be weighted with anything less than a 3/0 (bb's are preferred) and slugs must have as little exposed metal as possible. Try to make your darts pretty uniquely marked, and make sure
Melee Weapons: These seem to be more and more popular in FL lately. They must be either Hasbro Nerf weapons, or if they're homemade, the business end must be entirely covered in thick foam (like a pool noodle). The best way to tell is if somebody will let you hit them with it. Melee weapons should be treated like regular melee weapons. Meaning you throw daggers, knives, and machete-length swords, not full-sized swords (you know who you are )
-Players must wear eye protection.
-No tack-weighted or "death" darts.
-No exposed weights on darts.
-No slingshot-weighted darts. Most people use slugs or single BB glue dome darts. Fairly straightforward.
Money: Bring some. You could want to sell/buy something. We may try to organize a pool to buy pizza.
-There is no place to sit, or really to set up. Bring chairs and tables if you want such places to appear. Carakki will have some chairs and one table, the rest is up to you.
-Idiocy and immaturity will not be tolerated. If you can't handle this, you will be asked to leave.
-If Pizza doesn't work out, bring your own lunch.
-22nd street park is in my neighborhood. If you have any questions about the area (like where to eat afterwards, transport, etc.), I'd be happy to help.
-Gametypes will be determined with whatever we feel like playing. Most gametypes will be described before we start if there's any confusion.
-In tandem to the last thing- we play a lot of Pistol Rounds.
-There's not much cover in this field other than trees. Carakki has some windsocks (trashbags and pvc) to use, but more mobstacles would definitely help.
-Participating means that you pick up after yourself. There is one guy who takes care of the whole park, let's not make his job harder.
Raffle: FL wars are fun with raffles! So bring something you want to re-integrate into the community, or buy something. Anyone who wants to participate in the raffle must contribute to the raffle.
