All of lot 1 is fine to park in. If you choose to park in another lot, make sure it says you can park from these times to these times except on the weekend, no permit is needed.

This may help as well: http://www.dots.umd....nstocampus.html

Pictures should be up later today.


KEEP IN MIND MINORS MUST HAVE A PARENT SIGNATURE.

I'd like a final head count if you please.

Looks like I'm a go, just as long as I tell dad that I need to be there earlier then I need to - he seems to think that "I need to be here at this time" = this time + ~30 min. I might have my new mod worked up, if I can find the parts... :P


EDIT: I was reading rules like a good little nerfer, and found your melee rules here: http://umdnerf.com/rules.html.

What I want to know is, I have the equivalent of something like these (Homemade): http://en.wikipedia....ki/Modern_Arnis.

They don't have a handle or pommel, but they are made from the cores of what used to be foam training Nunchuku covered in pipe insulation, I can fix them to give them the 2''+ foam sealed over the tip, are they acceptable?

They would essentially be two foam covered hollow plastic tubes of a total length apiece being 1 foot 2 inch long.

I just beat myself upside the head with them and it didn't leave any marks. :P


Doesn't really matter if you are late. Your melees will probably be fine. Hard to tell over the Internets though. Also...Why bother linking me to the Modern Arnis, when you could have basically said:

I have two foam sticks is this OK (please circle one!) YES/NO/MAYBE

For the 9-12 I was just blindly copying the event page. I'll change it to say it's an all-day event. I can't seem to find any maps or building plans online, unfortunately.


Yeah, I was using a GPS last time round and it wasn't easy to descern the building. I don't think I was alone in my confusion either. Just give basic directions from each major entrance to the campus, and people can google everything else.

If anyone think it'll be helpful, I could give the exact coordinates in longitude and latitude. Will post directions after the 12th, including google maps and hopefully a picture of the building. We will also provide phone numbers to anyone who PMs me or Andrei. But please be patient, I am incredibusy.

Ok, then I have two, well, I guess three questions.

1: If it's not 9-12, what is it? I'm going to need to work out the time reasonably exactly, my ride has things that day, so we need to plan it out.

2: Are stefans in a lower powered blaster ok? I'm not going to be rolling with a +bow or anything, I'm not sure what I'm using yet.

3: And can we have a few pics?

Thanks much.


1: 9 in the morning till whenever everyone is too tired. Last year everyone took off around 7 or 8.

2: should be fine. At least someone will be using them in a 3k or some such.

3: Not yet. I'll see what I can do after the weekend. Just have VACC or Jordan or someone vouch for how awesome it is.

There are still quite a few unanswered questions for this war to be only three weeks away. Can we light a fire under the plusbow issue and that the war is only three hours?


War is not three hours, it's all day. Plusbows will be allowed but if you are deemed to be using them improperly, you will need to use another blaster. Close quarters and stefans will make hefty bruises with the plusbow, so I really recommend streamlines, as there is much less of a chance of anyone walking away with bruises. Please understand that the university is barely allowing us to have this event, so we need to be on our best behavior and not break anything this time.
