Great war today, I had a blast. I felt like the teams were generally well balanced and it seemed like everyone had a good time.
- Getting a NerfSTRoNG Bracelet.
- One of My Clan members came out in spite of having a broken toe.
- Meeting Groove and just hanging out with him while we waited for other folks to show up.
- Consistently getting my ass handed to me during the outdoor portion
- Consistently kicking ass indoors, and speaking of
- Shooting two people with the same Bigger Salvo blast.
- The showdowns between Sara, The Guru, and The Zaxbow
- The screaming charge!
- Watching Groove and axbys constantly look over their shoulders when they didn't know where I was during that same round
I was disappointed with the turnout, but glad the weather held for most of the afternoon. I also wasn't really pleased with my own performance. I need to get out and nerf more often to get my consistency up to where it needs to be. Otherwise I had a great time and I look forward to many more wars in here in the South.
After months of planning and preparing, we finally have a result!

We are the Foam Warriors of Presbyterian College, or FWPC. We are a Registered Student Organization at Presbyterian College, a small Liberal Arts college affiliated with the Presbyterian Church (USA). We've got around 30 members of our own clan and would like to see how we stack up against other folks both within the NIC and at other Colleges/Universities.
Several Southeastern Colleges and Universities are being invited and we have no idea who is going to show up. We would love to have some representatives from the NIC to come and show us where we stand.
Unfortunately, we cannot extend an invitation to people who are under 18 years old for liability reasons. I tried to get around this, but "the powers that be" were adamant on this point.
Eye Protection will be mandatory, no exceptions. We will have some extras on hand, but we'd rather not have to use them. Sunglasses and eyeglasses are plenty of protection.
There will be injury waiver forms to sign upon your arrival. This is basically just the College covering its own ass. They don't know you, and they want to be careful.
There are a number of local restaurants for lunch. As well as a number of local hotels for those who might spend the night. It is, after all, a college town. If you are interested in spending the night, PM me and I'll see what I can work out.
Also, there is a possibility of a post-war movie night to get a first look at any video footage and pictures that are taken throughout the day.
Earlier this school year, my clan applied to be a Registered Student Organization, which gives us official recognition from the college, opportunity for funding and expanded recruitment, and representation in the Student Government.
It's a pretty big deal.
I found out earlier tonight that we have been approved and are officially an RSO. I'm really excited about this and wanted to share the good news with the community.
