Redditch Nerf War 26th June

Hello,

On the 26th of June 2016 there will be a Nerf war in Redditch, there is a pretty large park with a few different options as to where we can play. There is a Morrisons around the corner so we can park cars there and walk round. Darts will not be provided, bring your own please Wink Also bring eye protection!

Time: 2pm - 5pm. (Roughly)

Location: Warwick Hwy, Redditch B98 0SW (For the Morrisons, we will meet at the entrance)

Gamemodes: Capture the Flag, HvZ, Free for All, 1 Life and 3 Life Team Deathmatch, 1 Life and 3 Life Pistol only. Any other gamemodes can be substituted or played as well if there is time Wink

If you have any windbreakers they would be appreciated so we have some cover in the fields.

Looks interesting, could you get any photos of the area that we will be playing? Also this is my 100th post, yay.
BaylissLad

There is one of the 3 possible areas (maybe more depending on how hard we look) shown im the imgur link. It is the first one highlighted above morrisons on the map photo. It is quite a long field, it goes a bit past those trees in the middle of the right field so plenty of space in that location. One of the others has higher grass so maybe some stealth missions xD?
NewportNerfer113

It's about 1.5 to 2 hours away from me. I'd be up for it, but depends on the date as to whether I can make it... would say the same for L11, as we would likely be travelling together. If we could make it.
BaylissLad

What would be a suitable date for you? Saturdays or Sundays are suitable for me but I would prefer sundays since I have a paper round on Saturdays. Give me dates guys!

Headcount:
Me
Newport if the date is right
Dusty to celebrate 100 posts xD
L11 because...Nerfing is fun
L11

I would definitely be up for this. Saturdays or Sundays I'm good but obviously depends on dates.

Is it all open lands. Looking at pics it is. We could do with some sort of  coverage props or blow ups.
BaylissLad

I have a windbreaker which is good if we all bring one that will provide great cover! L 1 1 what date would suit you? I need to know what everyone wants so i can make a date.
L11

I'll have to check with the boss (Wife) see what we have on.

The wind breaker sounds good. It would be handy if someone has the paintball blow up barricades, it's a long shot but who knows?!

BaylissLad

you have a windbreaker?
Franksie

I'm in if I don't have my kids that weekend
BaylissLad

Great! What date would be suitable for you? Preferably a Sunday
Franksie

Don't plan around me!  I'll fit in if i can
BaylissLad

How about the 26th June from lets say 2pm-5pm? If people agree on this I will add to title and post
NewportNerfer113

26th June is a no go for me. It's my little boys birthday.
BaylissLad

25th June 2pm-5pm? xD
BaylissLad

Im fine for either, I want as many as possible to come
BaylissLad

Hopefully someone from Grim up North can come down with the Magic Dart pool thingy m'bobby haha. Unless this happens it will be bring your own darts.


Come on guys we've got 5 people coming at the moment (If the date suits them, if not then 2-3 xD)
Vote and tell me you can come please Wink Once everything is confirmed I will update the original post with all the details and a headcount Wink


Thanks
Dustybin

I should be able to come, if not then I will inform you. I would move the war to July so there is more time to plan games.
BaylissLad

Not much to plan. I 100 % wanna do HvZ and I thought we could do a Capture the Flag, if you get hit then you have to go back, touch your teams flag then you can continue playing. If someone doesnt know what capture the flag is then ask and ill explain. We could do a generic Nerf War (TDM) and a Free for all. Any other ideas let me know.
OldNoob

Might I suggest editing your original post to include all the dates suggested then you can puck one? Asking oworks if they would attend a game with no date options is akin to asking the length of a piece of string.
If people vote for a date that usually means they can p/would like to attend.
UKNerfWar

Definitely within my reach. Not sure if there's anything else going on that weekend but I'll be there if I'm free.
BaylissLad

Great, do you happen to have a windbreaker that could be used as cover? Or something of the sort?
Dustybin

I think we should do Sunday, I will have 3 people with me, my parents and their parents.
BaylissLad

This sunday?
Dustybin

The 26th, not this Sumday. I would be too tired for that because I am attending ZHOM on the Saturday.
BaylissLad

Lucky you xD, yeh that's okay then. Do you have a windbreaker you could bring as cover?
Dustybin

We have 2, also what are the time staff we start and finish?
BaylissLad

1. time staff?

2. 2pm - 5pm roughly
Dustybin

2pm to 5pm is good, it allows people to get lunch and stuff.
BaylissLad

Yeh, just updated original post with all information needed
Dustybin

IMPORTANT RULE:

Bring your own eye protection, unless the GuN people can bring some for people who don't have any.

I don't think any of the GuN organisers are able to come.
L11

I'm really sorry, if the 26th is the confirmed data, I'm unable to attend.
Hope you have a really good war though!

Keep us posted on how it went.
BaylissLad

Newportnerfer can't either, is the 25th better for you two? I dont mind, I'd like as many as possible!
L11

To be honest the next few weekends are manic for me. I'm having a lot of work done in the house.
Tanithlord

I will be trying to get down to this if i Can Smile
BaylissLad

Ill just keep it on 26th then Wink

Look forward to seeing everyone there!
Lythy

I'll come on 26th
BaylissLad

Awesome! Do you have a windbreaker that can be used as cover?
Justajolt

I can't make Sundays, but have fun!
Dustybin

Can we do a head count, I want to know who is coming and how many people they are bringing.

I am coming with my dad, one of my friends and my English teacher.
BaylissLad

Headcount:

Me (Dad MIGHT, highly unlikely but maybe)
Dustybin + 2
Lythy
Tanithlord
UKNerfWar (Maybe)
Franksie (Maybe)
BaylissLad

Aslong as the weather is okay, we are still on for Sunday Wink
Dustybin

I think we will be meeting at the Morraisons entrance, if you will be late please inform us.
BaylissLad

My phone data will be on so reply to this thread if you will be late Wink
BaylissLad

Just a reminder for everybody, the Nerf War is at 14.00 today (2pm). Any cover that could be provided would be appreciated. We will be ending at roughly 17.00 (5pm) but if people want to finish early then we can.

Thanks, and make sure you come!

We are meeting at the Morrisons Entrance!
Dustybin

Baylis will not be able to attend so I am the only host there, I may need some help. If you don't have darts then I will be able to supply some.
blindgeekuk

1) Take a deep breath
2) Remember that you're probably the most experienced nerfer in terms of different game styles
3) Keep it simple

Depending on how many turn up, try some freezetag, and HvZ. If theres only 3 of you, do some timed survival, take it in turns being the human, the rest as zombies, load up a single blaster, with enough spares for 1 reload, and see how long you can surve using the usual hvz rules

You can do this though!
BaylissLad

I'm seriously annoyed I cannot come. Have fun Dusty
Lythy

Running late, waiting for grandma to arrive for babysitting detail
Dustybin

Tell me when you arrive.
BaylissLad

is that okay now then dusty?
Lythy

Best start without me, grandma forgot and I'm stuck til either she gets here or wife gets home
Dustybin

I have got to the area that is next to the road that comes from the roundabout but there is nothing here, the field is too overgrown.
Lythy

Hmmm that doesn't sound very hopeful. I've only been a couple of times, around the lake itself wouldn't be particularly suitable I don't think, options?
Dustybin

We are going to Arrow Valley Park, meet us at the car park.
Lythy

That's what I meant re the lake, I don't think there's anywhere suitable there
Dustybin

Arrow valley is busy, go to the second car park on the grass parking area.
Lythy

still no sign of me being able to leave

Edit: very sorry, I'm out, I won't be able to leave til gone 3:30. I am very sorry, this is why I didn't want to rush having a local game
BaylissLad

Have you now found a place to play? Are you playing now?

Was this not okay? http://imgur.com/4MenD0Q
You may have gone into the area below the circled one
OldNoob

This is why you should always recce an area first and post a detailed picture if the meeting place. I often have a minion bearing the Britnerf battle standard on a 10ft pole to help guide people too!
Hope you all meet up to fling some foam.
Dustybin

After wondering about aimlessly for about an hour we decided to find a spot in Arrow Valley park where there wasn't anyone. We did a pistols only free for all which I joined late because I was doing things but I won that one. We did 2 more pistols only rounds then we did the timed HvZ idea that BGUK had, after that we did a TDM which was won by my team because I outraged everyone else by a mile. Next we did a capture the hat which was cut short because someone decided that they didn't like being hit at close range by the stinger. Next we did a couple of free for all rounds using everything that I dropped out of because the darts where becoming wet and useless. After that we did a pistol TDM that worked really well. In all it was a good Nerf war but I was the only Britnerfer.

And Dustybin claims victory as the Savior of this event.

Is there nothing this nerfing youth can't do 😃

Reckon baylisslad owes youa rather large thank you for stepping up at short notice!
L11

Sounds like you made the best of a bad situation.
BaylissLad

We were intending on starting at 2pm anyway.

He was already helping me so it wasnt nothing crazy at short notice, thanks though Dusty.
OldNoob

Bayliss- Tha needs a bike lad (my Grim up Nerf impression.)

Dusty- Tidy work, well done.
BaylissLad

I could have rode there or git the train but then i wouldnt have had an adult.
OldNoob

If it's a public park you don't strictly need one. We have to tidy up the rules a bit.
BaylissLad

Are you serious......I COULD HAVE GONE?!?!?!?!?!?!
OldNoob

I didn't set up the rules for this game, you lot did.
Jaguar

Don't worry Baylisslad a good time was had by all, the field you chose was too overgrown (if it was the field you indicated) but we found a location in Arrow valley the was fine. Thanks for helping Dusty set the day up and let's try again another time. Shame you couldn't attend.
Dusty's Dad.
