Or better yet, give the job to somebody who already knows how to properly conduct such an event. Please, take no offense; you're just obviously inexperienced. Keep in mind I'm not the first to mention this. You still haven't mentioned eye protection or dart construction requirements- two basic concepts, the need of which is nearly universally accepted by the entire nic. We shouldn't have to tell you the basics of organizing a war, these things generally go without saying.

All guns are allowed, except the titan

I'm not sure I'm comfortable with that, plenty of guns are equally as powerful as a titan, cobras can be MORE powerful. Plugged lbbs, big blasts, rotorockets, etc etc.

You'd get more interest if you moved the war to Sacramento, as it seems to be closer to the majority of the interested parties. Two people have already expressed their discontent with this, one saying he was unsure whether he'd even be able to show up because of the war's current location in Roseville.

Discovery park is a good option, as there's plenty of trees and nature to use for cover as well as being easy to find and located near all the major freeways.

I'm 17, live downriver, in the Delta. I'm close enough.

That's what I assumed, but I've seen many Nerf war videos where they have open fields. If we were to use an open field we would probably have to make mobstacles (sp) or something of the sort.

I've actually hosted around 4 wars with just some friends (maybe 15 people max) where we went to the Social Science Building on the UCD campus (aka Death Star) which is basically a concrete fortress perfect for lower range Nerf wars. Unfortunately some angry student threatened to call the cops if we hit anybody so just to play it safe we left. Even though we were there late Sunday afternoon attempting to avoid people.

Yeah I'm not saying it's impossible to nerf in a open field, I'm simply saying picking a park with natural cover would be the most rational thing to do before buying and assembling the parts to make mobstacles haha.

I do agree with your earlier statement, that roseville is a bit far. Sacramento or Davis would probably be better as it's closer for the majority of the interested parties.

Northstar Park would be an excellent place as it has a large open field. There is a small parking lot right next to the field that would be plenty large for us. We would need to figure out/make obstacles, but other than that it should work well. It also would probably work better for many DUGG members as they're closer.

Generally you want to avoid open fields, like you said you want obstacles; cover and/or trees, places to dodge darts. Or else you wind up threatening to shoot each other from just outside your range. I've been there and done that. The best wars I've been to, socal wars, were hosted at schools. Corners and corridors make things much more practical.

Just a suggestion.
