Bristol Nerf War!

I just wondered if you are from Brizzle and you wanted to try to organise a West Country Nerf War (resists urge to make reference to that, Ambrosia advert, you know the one, or the Wurzles) could you post to let me know and I can put you in contact with a guy who came to the Grim Up Nerf War today who can help out with a venue in Downend.

Note: Having lived in Bristol, I'd like to suggest a name for the war. "Coz I'z wurf it" changes to "Coz I'z Nerf It!"
Davera

I would be interested. I'm not in Bristol but I live in the middle of no where so have to travel for any Nerf war. Bristol is just as close for me as anywhere else!

Well I'm just across the channel in exotic Newport. †I'd be up for it, assuming that a long list of variables work out... transport, childcare, etc. †As long as you don't mind a noob with virtually no gear other than a few Nerf guns. †I'll bring bags of enthusiasm and pancakes (homemade ones).

Should this get off the ground, I'll do my best to attend an event anywhere remotely near me.

I should add that I've no experience in organising an event, so that's best left to an expert Smile

Unfortunately the deal (from Grim up Nerf) doesn't extend to a fully organised Nerf extravaganza Smile

Having spoken to the gentleman JustaJolt is referring to he is very interested in the idea of doing the same sort of event in Brizzle - he can potentially supply a suitable venue - which as we've noted is the hardest part of organising to arrange.

If no one takes him up on this offer then a grand opportunity wasted....
Davera

Has this idea died or has anyone taken it upon themselves in the back ground?
OldNoob

It's not dead, I could easily set something up but I have a few other things to sort first. The calendar gets crowded from here on in as well. We have tried a Bristol event on three occasions, two have been run, one didn't get beyond the planning thread.
If people who would attend an event and pay a maximum of £5 each for an indoor event then think about dates I might be able to pick it up. I have enough pool darts and a box of Strongarms plus all the props required for a half days play, I have a venue in mind but it will only work if I can get some players. I bring myself plus two, I have my DBS check but will have to check the venues insurance for under 16's.
I haven't done anything about it because I was hoping someone else might!
Davera

I think I am too far from Bristol to organise, but would definitely come along. Might be able to bring an extra player or two.
£5 seems like a fair price to cover costs.  

How many players do you need before it is a go?
OldNoob

At least 10, otherwise it's not a big enough game to be worth the venue hire. If people commit to days/dates I can check the venue.
blindgeekuk

Hmm, if the wife could cope without me for 2 nights, I could travel down for £22. though given the mood she's in with me at the moment, thats never going to happen!
Boff

If it's a Saturday event, I can manage 2 players possibly more to a maximum of 4. None †of us have the time here to organise anything so that's in someone else's hands. Just post a date and we'll Y/N it. Cross reference the war date thread which I should really update. Smile
super gripper

I am up for OldNoobs event, not been to any Nerf wars before so looking forward to an indoor event.
Justajolt

Your venue hire would be free, potentially. Big venue too! Lots of rooms and corridors...
OldNoob

I wasn't sure if you had somewhere. Message me the location. I had another venue on my list.
Justajolt

Sending a PM.

If the guy's up for it (see first post on thread!) it would be here:

That looks excellent. 1 hour away from me, very doable.
Justajolt

Ha! Yeah. I just changed the link because it made my screen go all wide and crazy! As you can see, there's the building and grounds too. I've messaged OldNoob to get the conversation started with the keyholder.

- Benjamin Franklin

Everyone's busy. That's just life. Anyone thinking about arranging an event shouldn't be daunted by what they perceive to be a time consuming task. You make it as simple or as complicated as you like. It's your event after all.
OldNoob

Just an update, not heard back from the venue Justajolt, give it a kick?
If I don't hear anything regarding a date then I will look at plan B and set up a couple of date options. I will then start a planning thread.
Boff

If you're good to take the lead then I can offer on the day support, assistance and armoury services if I have enough notice and it's not a GC weekend. Smile
OldNoob

I will take point on it, I was planning on completely avoiding dates on and either side of GC.
super gripper

Do we have a set date on this event or have I missed it somewhere in the thread ?
Justajolt

I've sent a kick email!

I'll PM the guy's address to you as well...

*Edit to avoid double posting*

He's been kicked and says he's responded ^_^
