Post WolfPack Leeds - Inaugural Event, Sat 28th Jan 5-8pm, Yeadon  Reply with quote
Thats right, I'm back with a new Nerf event, and proving that Leeds is a hub of Nerf activity to rival the likes of Bristol...

I'd like to introduce you to:

WolfPack Leeds
Wolfpack is a new revolution in indoor Nerf arena combat in Leeds, with a changing battlefield each month, and ranked team combat, played out via fast and furious 10 vs 10 'speedball' games.

Our Location
We've secured a year long regular monthly booking at 5s Soccer in Yeadon. This former industrial unit is an indoor soccer centre, with state of the art surface, run by a former professional footballer. They bill themselves as a 5 aside facility, though their pitch is bigger than I expected, and they have additional benefits, such as a viewing balcony, reception area with drinks on sale, and a large carpark.
The 5s Soccer facility is located at Unit 5, Kirkfield Business Centre, Whackhouse Lane, Yeadon, Leeds, LS19 7LX
This is ideally located a few minutes walk from several bus routes, and about 2 minutes off the main road from Leeds city centre out to Guiseley and beyond.

Our First Event Date
Taking me a little by surprise, we've been able to secure the venue on the last saturday of every month. Including January... Normally, our times will be 3:30 to 6:30pm, but due to existing bookings, this month its, Sat 28th Jan, its 5-8pm.

Cost
WolfPack Leeds comes under the umbrella of a 'pay to play' Nerf event, but WolfPack Leeds will only charge players enough to cover the cost of the venue hire. Based on the current cost, and 40 potential players, I've set the ticket cost at 3

New Players
New players should check out our Code of Conduct document, on our website and our facebook page, which explains the rules we use, safety guidelines, and how we expect a player to behave. You can find our Liability Waiver on the back of it, we require all players to have handed in a signed and dated print out of it.
Please note, players aged 16 or under MUST be accompanied by an adult.

Loaner Blasters
There will be a substantial selection of front-loading blasters at the event. After signing in, you will be directed towards the tableau of foam flinging goodness where you will be helped to choose a suitable blaster.

Age Restrictions
To allow WolfPack Leeds to be insured, and allow us to use the best blasters around, we have a minimum age for players of 8 years old. We have found that kids under this age can struggle to prime a blaster, don't fully understand our rules, take their eye protection off, and have a lower pain threshold.
All players under 16 years old need a parent to remain on the site throughout the event, and 16 to 18 year olds need a parental consent form signed by their parents in order to attend without them.

Safety And Behaviour
1 - We expect blasters to be in original or brightly coloured schemes, with an orange tip. i.e. nothing (weapon or clothing) to alarm the locals or other building users.
2 - We won't be slowing down to assess performance so if you're primary is modified and there is any chance it might be judged as over powered make sure you have a backup on hand.
3 - We will be providing all darts to be used at the event.
4 - Eye protection is required and some will be provided, glasses users do so at their own risk.
5 - Anyone under 18 requires parental permission, and under 16's require a parent to be on site at all times. Consider it an excuse to get your dad or mum playing
6 - Between games you are expected to help recover and reload darts. Weapons MUST be placed in your Wolf Pack's safe zone in an unloaded state between games. Failure to obey this rule will result in the player being removed from the next game.
7 - If it's not your's, don't touch it without asking
8 - Any abusive, threatening or racist behaviour won't be tolerated.
9 - No smoking, drug taking, drinking, or swearing on the premises.
10 - By attending, we consider this acceptance of the above rules, and your acknowledgement that Nerfing is not without risk, and that you are playing under your own will, and will not hold anyone else liable for any injuries that occur.
11 - And above all else, it's only a game, have fun, and obey the most important rule: Don't be a dick!

Being honest, the fact he said yes to one so soon has really thrown me, I've not got quite enough barriers to make a truly effective speedball field yet, and theres a few more things I'd like to get. Given the short notice though, I'm expecting Jan to be a fairly soft start. Allowing me to try out some different things, before the hordes arrive in Feb.

With febs event on the 25th, FDT on March 4th and GuN presumably on March 11th leeds is spoilt for Nerf!

I'm in! Ticket bought. Small thing, but with fees the tickets come to 4. I'm looking forward to another few hours of Nerfing!

Yeah, eventbrite has changed a lot since I last used it, now charges it's own fees and a vat on top, so a 3 ticket becomes 4. And I only get the 3 after the event... I'll find something better for febs event

EDIT:

It's looking like there will be at least 4 britnerfers at the event on sat. No idea how many others, i've had vague 'me and my 6 mates' or 'dana and lia have said they are coming if i go' from various people, but we should hopefully have 20 or so...

Are the britnerfers up for an us vs all the others round?

Full after action report to come, but in summary:

Various ukmail fuckups meant a lack of barriers.

46 players, plus most of the dads joining in during the last hour.

Very successful, broke even on the venue hire cost and could of charged more according to various parents who didn't expect the 3 hours of fast and furious games.

Venue very positive.

Some issues to address, but nothing unsurmountable.
