Sorry GuN, We Got There First!

So this has been mentioned several times all over the forum... particularly since GuN is so popular, etc.  But everyone has been talking about "patches".   Well, L11 and I had been discussing this since before he joined the forum earlier this year, about if we ever got involved with organising a regular event how cool would it be to have some kind of logo made up.

Before joining forces, Avengers-style, with Davera, NubHunter44 and Overkhillman for future Bristol Blast events, I had commissioned 2 patches for L11 and myself, because I was a bit over-excited.  With Bristol Blast being our local Nerf event, I wanted something to tie myself to the event as I had every intention of becoming a regular... I'm a little more involved now though Smile and what with L11 and I being attached at the hip, it was the logical choice to get two.

L11 did not know I had done this secret squirrel type activity until a few days ago, when I let him know about them, and that I was picking them up at Bristol Blast 3.  I hope it was a nice surprise for him after the disappointment of not being able to attend the event - after all family is the most important thing, and that comes first.

At this point a MASSIVE thanks to Boff for his work and comms on this - he made it better than I had imagined it in my head.

And of course, because this is all friendly banter, I thought I'd put Boff's hard work on here to make the GuNners drool a bit and imagine how dashing they could look with patches of their own Smile





How do you like them apples!

Sorry to kill your steam but ZHoM has

Standard permit runs out next year but will still do for now.
Regulars will get one at the anniversary plus some other fancy goodies and a mini prize give out.
Might do some personalized ones as well as the ones above ^^ look really really good!

Not killing my steam TDK.  I was just so excited to have them made, and thought I'd get a bit of banter going on the forum.  

The permits at your link look excellent.
L11

It was a bloody good surprise!
We talked about it so much but I didn't expect it to materialise! They look so cool aswell!

I am made up, I can't wait to get them stuck to my rig and ware it with pride!

First? I've had my patch for atleast a year now. Should probably put it on something.
NewportNerfer113

It's all about the visibility.  If we can't see it, does it exist... a conundrum indeed.
Franksie

There's some banter about a confirmed regular venue in here... I'll leave you girls to it 😉

There absolutely is Franksie Smile I was just having a laugh after Justajolt's reaction on one of the other threads about the mention of patches.  It's all in good fun, we are trying to get to a place where GuN already is Smile but I also had something shiny to shout about Smile

I need a way to carry patches, if GuN starts getting their own patches then I will be carrying 4 different ones.
Seiryuu

You need a patch pouch? I can hook you up.
Boff

We can also do a Velcro fronted Small Zip Dump Pouch for the same price as a regular dump pouch so instead of the MOLLE, it has a giant 100mm wide Velcro panel on it. It's the same pouch as I was running with my patches on it today. Gimme a sec and I'll get a photo. Smile

EDIT:



Next time out I'll have 2 of these so I can store loose darts in addition to my phone, wallet and tool kit. Very Happy
blindgeekuk

Very snazzy!

And while I know it's just banter, I don't ever want to be in a situation where the community feels they have to be first ahead of GuN. We've been lucky and had incredible support (i have an idea on how to pay this back for our anniversary...) but we're just building on the groundwork of people like Boff and OldNoob.

And in fairness, Boff did ask for our logo about 7 months ago to play with it and see what he can make, though I never heard back from him on it Smile

I've actually been looking at patches last night as I my best from bsuk that Boff and I hashed ou the details on has some extra team based ideas, but I also wanted some chest and back patches to say red and blue team on them, as well as one that says marshall.

Boff, can I amend my order so that the small zip pouches are velcro fronted?
NewportNerfer113

Thanks BGUK, I agree friendly banter is all good and well, but we arent competing against each other. This is a place for sharing our experiences so we can learn and do things better next time.  The banter is just follow on from what's been said before because I'm cheeky like that 😀

I expect a similarly banter filled post when you show off whatever goodies Boff magics up for you.

Patches, you say 🤔

Dry yer eyes girls and try to keep up 😜
NewportNerfer113

It's so shiny. My eyes are blinded. Why? Oh, why am I weeping.
Justajolt

Velcro Patches!!!?? LUXURY!

We actually had patches, but I think Thatcher took them when she closed the mills and took our milk...

Joking aside, I think your patches look fantastic! I think it'll be great to have a big get together, all of us with our own regional patches (and commemorative Britnerf 5th Anniversary patches).

Well done for getting that together, guys ^_^ Although, you misspelt Bristol (Brizzle). I still think you need a slogan too: Cuz I'z Nerf it! or Ooh-Ar or something.

And, BGUK, I think every other Nerf community in the world should feel like they have to try to be better than us, although they never will be because THEY'RE NOT BASED IN YORKSHIRE!  Razz Razz Razz  Cool

The North should have "It's Nerf, Or Getting Soaked"
This whole patch idea should be a standard, like having stamps on a passport it should show other nerfers which games and where you have been to fling foam.

Have you tried making patches out of Duct Tape?  Razz

Also, in reference to a slogan, a lot of the Bristol Blast lot aren't even from Brizzle!
NewportNerfer113

Maybe that can be our slogan... We Ain't Even From Yer! But We Nerf Yer!

Duct tape! LUXURY! Fresh wool, with mashed red cabbage for dye and sheep's droppings for adhesive!

Maybe your slogan should be "We're a bit soft, really"

Although I do like your other slogan! I love stuff like that!

PS. Darned straight, OMN Twisted Evil

Maybe your patch should just be a picture of a sheep eating some red cabbage? Perhaps even being chased by Nerf clad Yorkshiremen!

I realise that as a Welshman, this is leaving me open to all sorts of abuse, but hey ho Laughing
