The war is tomorrow. The weather looks good; plan around low to mid 70's, so dress accordingly.

If anyone has an electronic flag from the capture the flag set please bring it, so we can use it.

If you purchase a pack of the 36 clip system/streamline darts you'll be entered into a raffle to win an authentic Nerf Recon expertly modded by Louie and myself!!! It's supa sub-optimal yo!

I am coming. Do we have an idea of how many people will be there yet?

As a last ditch effort before the war on Sunday I am going to try a fully threaded rod from McMaster of the original diameter as that should create plenty of friction, but we will see.

If you've really changed the diameter of the rod too much, look into adding new steel to the catches. Probably by drilling the original holes out for clearance and soldering in steel stock, or something like fender washers (with a carefully reamed ID). You'd have to change those out radically for a new rod anyway.

My concern with that approach would be the solder joint giving due to the stess it would have to take. Basically the threaded rod is a quick fix, theres a good chance it won't work and in that case I will fabricate new catch parts rather than try to repair them, I just want to see if I can get away with not having to do that first.

Update: Threaded rod actually performed worse as a plunger rod; looks like its back to the drawing board.
