Yorkshire Nerf Event

I happened to spot a troupe of Nerf-toting people whilst out and about a week or so ago. They were an assassins group composed mainly of Leeds and Durham uni students. I was mortified when I spoke to the organiser to discover that that was to be the last event they were to organise and that no future such gatherings were planned.

If anyone knows of any groups who meet regularly in West Yorkshire, please PM me!

Dude, don't keep the info to yourself, let 'em post it here instead Laughing.

It was probably the assassins' varsity you saw, leeds, durham and sheffield all play host to that annually in a 3 year cycle.

Re: Yorkshire Nerf Event

That was indeed us lot. Razz I did hear that Leeds Assassins are disbanding as a society which is a shame, but Varsity is still set to continue for the foreseeable future. It's supposed to be in Durham next year although I think there were talks about York taking the reigns for a year (after Leeds go I think they'll move into the top three largest active societies).

Varsity is only an annual thing though and there hasn't really been much in the way of Nerf wars up N'orf. If you want some games in your area you could always try your hand at organising some of your own (maybe with the help of some of the veteran war organisers on here, who I'm sure would be more than happy to help).

While I too have heard that about leeds, I am also aware of their annual electoral meeting occurring in a week. To me atleast, that suggests it was all talk.

I tend to collect their discarded darts on my way to work Smile

I have plans for an event, probably in one of the parks near Headingly or Meanwood Valley. Just waiting for the sun to dry things out a bit more.

Let me know when and I'll see if I can help out. To be selfish, Saturdays are best for me and I'll bring some friends along too!

Saturday is all part of the plan. Probably afternoon. More the merrier.

I'll be there and, if you want the assassins, I have contacts within their ranks.

Did anything come of this event? I'm in otley and wouldn't mind joining in an event in leeds
Seiryuu

Not as far as I'm aware and, while the leeds assassins aren't actually disbanding as such, they apparently won't be doing anything until they can resolve monetary problems.

I've not forgotten the idea - just been busy organising other non Nerf events!

I live not far from Otley. Had considered the Chevin or most likely mean wood valley park as a venue, although I'm open to suggestions for indoor venues. The bridge church halls always seemed like a good option in Otley?

Bridge church or the methodist church hall in otley are decent sized, though good luck getting an answer out of the methodists. I went with St Margarets in horsforth for my daughters party, huge hall, not that much more to hire than those in otley, and the bookings guy was really quick to reply.

The ymca are building a new sports hall by the old student campus by Westwood police station, so that might be an option in the future
