Looks like BB7 is going to be Rival heavy!


Excellent. It's time to put theory into practice about the range advantages of darts. I'm going to go charge my Stryfe battery...

Much like dart blasters not all Rival blasters are made equal.....

If you come up against an Atlas you're laughing. A rewired Zeus is a different beast.

I have been busy building blasters for eBay and Etsy, if people would like to save on paostage I can bring the blasters with me on the day.
I am not permitted to have my shop there but people can still pay me on the day if they would like a modded blaster.
I have stryfe's, demolisher's and modulus's

I will also have some blaster bags from bagablaster with me

Busy packing my gear for the weekend, exciting stuff. Landing at Bristol Airport Friday night and staying over Friday, Saturday. I can get an Airport bus to Temple Meads station and Just wondering if anyone was able to sport me a lift on Saturday to the BB venue? On Sunday I can get the train up to Parkway for tech day and then back to the airport. So if anyone is passing the Airport on Saturday morning, that would be great if not anyone able to catch me at the station? Also do you except waffle tips as payment or Koosh only?

Nerf niners are hitting BB7 hard - we plan on bringing 10 eager Nerfers and I might even get the wife to have a go.  My son is celebrating his birthday, so he will be getting more than his fair share of darts aimed at him...

Everyone is looking forward to the day - just got to fix a couple of guns.

Is anyone planning on bringing a shield along on Saturday? Just wondering if I should include a shield buster in my load out?

Shield rules we play are:

Shields can be destroyed by Demo missiles (or other similar missiles) and kills the wielder. All other darts do not count unless you hit the users person then normal rules apply.

If you run a shield you can only use a single shot front loader for self protection, but you are predominantly a support not an attacker.

Not sure how many we are expecting this time!

Cheers, I've packed 100 waffle tips with me but I'll see if they survive the suitcase. Looking forward to meeting everyone and if anyone can help with a lift please let me know, if not I'll just jump in a cab from the station, doesn't look that far on the map.

I'm getting excited for this now.  Just hope it doesn't rain too much, and that I'm at least 50% fit (stupid cold! Again!).

Sorry BigAl, I'm relying on lifts myself due to my mechanical wagon being out of commission, otherwise I'd offer to come get you.  Hopefully someone will see your plea and be able to help you out Smile

Aarrgghh! I'm so excited! Got 2 pairs of kneepads to try out on the day (though I'll try to avoid falling over this time), and I'm working on bastardizing an old respirator sack into a hefty dump pouch with stabilizing thigh strap.

I also can't decide what blasters to bring: souped up Rayven (naturally), Atlas and Apollo (because I want to have Rival fun), souped up Slingfire (for fun in HvZ rounds), plus I'm bringing a boosted EAT for a friend to borrow, and probably a Stryfe (also for friend to borrow). That still leaves 50+ blasters sat at home not getting any lovin'.

Davera, The birthday boy is 13, who is bringing six (6) of his similar aged mates.  Combine this with his younger brother (10 Years old) and three that are old enough to know better and you have a range from 10 to 50+.  Come and say hello - there may be some cake!

I spent this morning playing with my radios and generally checking my gear through. My excuse was that I could reuse it all for Tech Day so it totally counts as work, right? Very Happy

I'll be there. With my Stryfes and maybe my Rapidstrike if I decide I need it. This one's looking to be a big one.

I've spent the evening charging lipos and some last minute mods ready for tomorrow. Not being sure what to expect I've tried to pack for every eventuality, so I've got springers, a flywheeler, magazine blasters, front-loaders, a shotgun, rifles, pistols, mega and even vortex. Hopefully, by the end of the day, I'll have given everything a good pasting and have a better idea of what works for me.

Not sure if it's of any use but I've also packed one of those cube multi-timers that's handy for King of the Hill.

Asides from blasters, batteries, goggles, comfortable shoes and something to eat & drink, is there anything you veterans would advise me to bring?

The kitchen sink?

In all fairness, I'd say bring kneepads. You may not be planning on falling over, but it happens, and you'll appreciate the protection when it does. Plus kneeling for cover loads takes it out of your knees too. Also, a change of t-shirt is a good idea if you have a long drive home.

Oh, most importantly, bring a sense of fun. If you're not having fun, you're doing it wrong!

UK Foam is picking up at the station but I've had a bit of a disaster with my holdall and the zip is broken and I have had to use my suitcase, don't know if he'll have room for it in the car. Can some one tell him I'm trying to get in touch, I can jump in a cab if not it's cool.
