Foam Dart Thunder - first adults only event!

We've finally got round to organising an adults only (16 and +) event - lot's of parents at the parties have been asking for this so I'm using a massive sports hall that my kid's play basketball in every week.

Birthday party format, using the 10 inflatable camo cubes and will be Dart Tag only. We can cater for 40 players.

Event link is here - not sure if anyone from the forum will be able to make it (Northwind/Oukie?) but as always all are welcome:

Should be some Go Pro action going on as well so will try and put together a vid afterwards. Think the RC truck could work well at this event Smile

Why do you have to be in Scotland  Crying or Very sad
FDT

Sorry mate - hoping to branch out across the UK eventually but looking to saturate Edinburgh, then Scotland first.

If you want to discuss running something where you are under the FDT banner drop me a PM Smile

Must admit I didn't realise it'd be dart tag only, got to be honest that puts me off quite a bit, not being able to use any of my own stuff. Doesn't rule me out though

Yeah you'll be wanting our monthly skate park events Northwind - they already cover the "Elite/bring your own"  market. These dart tag events are basically the same as our kid's birthday parties but for adults. The demand is there so we're satisfying it. Like all our other events we've tried out, the first one will tell us whether it'll work going forward.

The skatepark we use is opening new premises soon (Dalkeith/Mayfield) and then we'll be going in for a look and scheduling our next event - hopefully late Feb.

Since I'm in Edinburgh I cant really say no. May have a couple others interested as well.

Ah hah! I thought they were one and the same. Well I will see you in Feb then I reckon.
FDT

Great news guys!

Yeah Northwind - I'm trying to cover all the bases!

When you say "Dart Tag only" is that Dart Tag darts only or Dart Tag blasters only?
FDT

Dart tag and dart tag blasters.

Need to check before I mod my Speedload. Are we allowed to use a dart tag blasters with better springs or only stock blasters?

If you haven't done it yet I would say stock. It would probably be the only mod there - maybe next time.

Glad you're thinking of coming along Smile
Milofo

Yeah I thought that. Have the spring there but never got round to puting it in. Although since the wife's coming as well shooting her with my modded blasters is  more fun.

Just tip me the wink when we're splitting up the teams!

Have you guys bought tickets already?
Milofo

Yeah. Got myself, the wife and a friend. Looks to be a good night.
FDT

Pulled in 20 adults for our first ever grown ups event. Milofo was there with wife and chum (thanks again for coming along) and feedback was great. Only thing we need to work on is making sure we have good quality dart tag darts. Too many rogues in our current batch.

Will be working on video this week so will post link up when complete.

Need to work on a date for the next one Smile
Milofo

It was a great event and each game type worked well. The games were fast paced, but they were set up that you didn't need to be running all the time and everyone took it as their own speed.
My wife has now caught the Nerf bug because of this event and has her wanting more.

The link I have to get more taggers  is below but its not cheap.

Thanks again for a great event.
FDT

Thanks for the feedback and glad we're now responsible for a new Nerfer!

Hopefully running another one in May and after that it may become a monthly fixture Smile

Hope to get video up next weekend!
FDT

As promised, video is now live - Milofo is featured quite heavily Wink

Next one will likely be 23rd May:)
Milofo

The pleasures of being a zombie.  Very Happy
oukie

I got knackered watching that, not really sure what was going on in all honesty.
Other than shit loads of running, I'm more of a heavy weapons specialist, the term, dug in like an Alabama tick, springs to my mind.
FDT

Yeah we had an energetic bunch in that night. They all said what a great workout it was. The scenarios we went through were:

Lockdown
Rescue the Hostage (various scenarios/locations for the hostage)
2 v 2
The Hunger Games
HvZ
Free For All

We had a full 2 hours so got through a lot. By the last few games people were taking a seat to get a break, but it's no fun showing you that in a video!

I was really happy with how it panned out, given it was our first try with solely adults. I've no doubt this will become a monthly event.
Boff

Need. To. Get. To. Edinburgh. That is all.
FDT

Welcome anytime  Smile

Seriously, if anyone wants to travel up for a weekend we'll sort you out for digs etc - no probs Smile
oukie

I need to travel 20 miles, to get to Edinburgh, Embarassed

Saying that, I was seriously ill and only just went back to work since being off from the beginning of December, proper scary stuff. But ok now so hopefully I can make the next one.
FDT

Would be great to get you over the bridge at some point mate - hopefully the 23rd May for the next one, date tbc...
