It would be a great idea if you could get it to work (also where in New York? I'm currently going to college in Potsdam and would love to participate if I can) thing is (and the main reason that HVZ is usually done at colleges) is that a college campus offers a wide open space where people can run around with nerf guns, and where everyone is pretty much in the same spot. As opposed to a town or park somewhere where you could only do it one day at a time (unless you get a camping permit or something)
Best of luck to you!
thanks but thing is that i might be changeing it for my kind of dilemma where people just show up and we participate in gametypes created ahead of time, and plus i wont be doing this till the summer and i want to go to a war and host my own before actually doing this and im on long island btw so incase you do want to come
