ZHoM 3rd September - 2 - Wythenshawe Park

Right here we go again!
Just a quick note that people with dart donations (thank you) could they please PM me to sort stuff out (thanks again seriously you are cool people)

Location: Wythenshawe Park - Same area as last time
There is a car park by the farm and I suggest we meet there and work our way to a small corner of the huge park.

Time: 1-4
There is lots to do there if people want to be early and there is food etc
I'll be there at least an hour in advance and look for the small guy with scarily long blonde hair.

Rules:
The obvious abuse lot. None will be tolerated and police will be informed of any misconduct.
150fps limit and only public friendly paint jobs as we are in a public place
Swearing limited, we all do it by accident occasionally.
No alcohol the obvious.
And be respectful to the environment and public

Game: the good old lot!
I will be bringing down flags hopefully so we can do that. (Have plans on a "server"(computer) style game with a BritNerf flag more on that later.
Zombie games will be the main attraction hence our name including BUZAN style games.

How to get there:
Google it. As simple as that.
Following Style Road and then sign posts is one way.
Also there is a tram stop.

Notes:
Darts are provided but we ask for a donation of 4 for the ones we loose.
Also some loner blasters are available but not to the extent of Grim up events.
Note again that mandatory eye protection when games are in play

Ages:
Under 15's with an adult please
Over 15's with some sorts of consent
18+ Just show up.

Sadly, I won't be attending because I am on holiday then. I would love to come if I could.

No problem things get in the way.
Regardless it'd been nice to see you there.
Justajolt

Could quite possibly make it to this... we'll be coming back from holiday the previous day. I'll let you know for certain as soon as I can...
The Dark Kitten

I may end up shifting it a week just for most people's convince
Honestly it'd be easier for me the next weekend.
Dustybin

But the 27th is Bristol Blast! I would say to push it back to the 3rd of September because you wanted to go to Bristol Blast.
The Dark Kitten

True dusty true. I'll see what I can do.
Dustybin

Any news on the date change?
The Dark Kitten

DATE CHANGE.
Please take note.
So by popular demand the date is offically changed to the 3rd of September.
Main post updated also.
Dustybin

Ok, I should be able to attend now.
Justajolt

We had an amazing time at the first event! Here's some footage! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b-a1Yz57LvI
The park we played in was fantastic. I highly recommend a visit ^_^

Thankyou very much! Yes please do come. It was an excellent event I must say all brought together by those who came.
The footage is also very good (subscribe to jolt). Honestly I need to cut my hair or at least tie it back.

UPDATE:
I can get us up to 8 of us because i have already got 2 willing friends that said they'd partake in it.
Furthermore i have 2 others in mind that i'll message today.

I must say the first 2 are basically noobs so will need a helping hand so i say we bring as many front loaders and have quite a few front loaders only rounds.

Does that sound ok?
The Dark Kitten

Update ^
Sorry to double post but it is relevent

EDIT

Please DO NOT DOUBLE POST. Simply copy your previous post into a new one, post that and delete the old one. This post is not at all relevant. Spelling and grammar? Punctuation? ON

Dustybin

Thread necro but it's relevant and necro rules don't really count in active war threads (because that's silly)!

Are we allowed Boomco? I migh bring a boomco blaster.

Boomco is fine although you'll have to provide your own ammo of course.
Sadly this thread has become necro but now we have life!
To be fair i dont know how BC darts fly and how hard they hit so its subject to how hard it hits on the day. Weather is said to be Cloudy but bright with a chance of rain which will be fine but the ground may be a little wet but that should be ok.
To reiterate my last post there will be 6 of us so far with 2 of them being 2 of my mates which are basicly Nerf noobs. That should be fine i have plenty of front loaders for them to use/easy to use blasters. Dont forget to bring some patience.
OldNoob

Boomco darts fly really well, they have much more tip mass than a Nerf style dart. Stock the KE is in the usual toy limit and even with a mod spring up to 120-130 FPS you will be well under 1.25j.
DK- well done for getting another event going. Tell us how it went on Monday Discord.
Dustybin

Don't worry, it's only going to be shooting at about mid 50s with a peak of the low 60s.

Yes you may give Jolts Magstrike a run for its money!

The problem with the rapid madness is that there is very little to do to increase performance without sacrificing the ROF, which, at that point you could just get a boomco springer.

In terms of a ROF, it is supposedly 10 darts a second.

EDIT: and apparently the magstrike can reach up to 5 darts a second.

5? double that from Jolts videos!
Although was it the old dart tag ones were known to fall low of that.
Dustybin

It seems we will have to test the 2 blasters if we both show up.
The Dark Kitten

That wont be the only testing!
ON sent me over an Artifact Breech retal so i'll be testing that against a standard retal so that'll be intersting and the full auto shoot out will also be good.
Justajolt

Just checking that we're still on for the 3rd ^_^
The Dark Kitten

Should be unless something drastic happens.
Although im a tad worried about my darts.
They havent arrived yet so may be cutting it a tad close
Dustybin

I have some darts if you need to borrow some.
blindgeekuk

If I see Justajolt before the 3rd, which should be highly likely, and if I figure out which box they are packed into (less likely), then GuN has 200 darts to donate to get your pool started
The Dark Kitten

Both of you please do!
If my darts arrive then dusty you wont need to bring any but for now keep them ready.
Can i ask what dart type they are?
BG thankyou very much its very kind of you to do this it certainly will help in the start of the Zombie pool of something. Well discuss that later.
With 200 added that'll make a pool of 800 i think (?). Which should be ok for a while.
Dustybin

I have elites, koosh and some Boomco darts, I will let people borrow them if we don't get a dart pool of some kind.
Justajolt

Ripped a piece of the dart bag last night, planted it in my projects and busted blasters box, and it's got 10,000,057 darts in it now. We'll have enough.

You see thats eco friendly nerfing
And i take the Ensisor you got was home grown too if i was so organic?
Justajolt

I didn't actually want it... It just sprouted next to another Hyperfire and an Apollo!

Nasty weeds.
Anyway sorry to kill the fun but update!:
Weather looks bad sadly with light showers when we are playing.
This might change but bringing a coat and something that doesnt use lithium might be smart.
Bring lipos and stuff anyway because we might get lucky
Dustybin

Might...

You know what British weather is like.

Right no one bring anything with any metal in it.
You never know when you might get hit by lightening XD
True true we might happen to get another great day or it may bucket it down.
From the voodoo prediction it said light rain so we might get lucky
Dustybin

Light rain is during wars useful because it stops people from wandering into our "war zone" and stopping us from playing or staring at us weirdly.
The Dark Kitten

Bystanders we have found however have been good as seen last time however we don't want people getting the wrong idea and thinking we were playing paintball like last time.
If we don't mind getting damp the rain can add a new dynamic that wouldn't be there otherwise.
Or it makes it miserable.
If its nasty in the rain i'll think about finding a hall or inside venue for later events over the winter.

UPDATE : Dusty don't bring darts, i just got about 400 in the post so we should be ok.
blindgeekuk

I just handed 200 fresh yellow koosh to Justajolt to bring over to form the start of your own Magical Refilling Dart Bag (tm)
OldNoob

Don't forget to ring 101 and TELL THEM YOU ARE THERE. Give a contact name and number, explain you are an organised group and you have been advised to inform Plod. Then if anyone calls they know you aren't paintballing terrorists.
Justajolt

As BGUK said, I've got the darts ^_^

I'll be a little late tomorrow due to a couple of commitments, but I am coming...
The Dark Kitten

Right im all packed up and'll tram down at 11 hopefully to make it by 12 to be super early.
Pc Plod will be notified either tonight or in the morning and i will inform them thoroughly that we aren't as ON said paint balling terrorists and'll give them my phone number and so forth. Thanks for the darts  BG they will get put to good use. Look out for the long hair again and 2 full back pack!
I'll see you all there in the same car park.

We are on our way. Does anyone know what the weather in Manchester is like at the moment?

Umm pretty miserable sadly might brighten up but not withing an hour.
I'm all packed up and will leave in about 1/2 an hour with a plethora of blasters.
With the rain WATCH YOUR LITHIUM don't be silly (Cough cough Jolt cough cough).
So defiantly bring some springers but never the less i have 2 retals people can borrow.
Dustybin

We have arrived.
The Dark Kitten

Right with war over i'm quite surprised were all dry!
The weather was appalling but as soon as we took cover under the tree line it dried of a tad.
It started with 3 of us - Me, Dusty and Dustys dad
We loaded up and started with a few casual rounds as we waited for an update from Jolt.
During this we found that Dusty's Rapid Madness was absolutely destroying us and our retals.
We carried on this with a few pistol rounds and others.
After some time i convinced my unwilling friends to join in on 2 rounds on was a good primary round where they got to grips with the blasters we let them borrow.
Next we followed with  "Speed HvZ" round. There was a 10 seconds re-spawn timer for the zombie alongside a 5 second immunity timer. We were destroyed by Dusty's dad to be fair! I held up until the end with Dusty's stock bolt action retaliator which in the rain was compulsory any higher spring load was way to difficult to prime and would just result in a slip.
It was only when we had packed up and headed back to the car park that Jolt arrived.
We had a good chat and discussed whist firing down at some tree's.
Jolt got some footage of some of the more unique blasters and we exchanged hands of GuN's very kind donation of 200 koosh bringing the dart pool of ZHoM (still needs an official name) to 600ish darts.
Many thanks to Dusty and his dad for a great time, Jolt for being a great currior of darts and giving us a great chat at the end and to BGUK for a very kind donation and kick start.
blindgeekuk

No worries on the darts, Grim Up Nerf are happy to support new groups.

Must say, for all we've had snow at GuN events, and a couple of event where the rain the days before had left the grass wet and slippy, we've not had a full on rainstorm. I'm dreading the winter months...

Keep at it, publicise it once your back at school etc
Dustybin

Yeah, the Rapid Madness is good...

Now I have to dry out all of my gear which will take a while.
The Dark Kitten

All the Koosh is still wet and my BSUK stuff and i have a fine layer of leaves everywhere
