Ooh you missed GC1 by a week, marvellous. I might be not dead enough to make it but no promises. If I am there, expect either a full supah-1337-op3r4t0r Boff or a walking vegetable depends how it goes over the previous weekend. There won't be any in-between. Razz

Looking forward to being back at the new venue.

Oh, quick question. If I bring 200 darts for the pool could I count the second hundred as entry to the next war I attend?

Is it still only koosh for entry, or will you now accept the various (stacked, brick wall, and cross head) waffle tips?

We accept elites, koosh and waffle style darts.

We do not accept fvjs or darts that are shorter than the norm as these are either dangerous or cause flywheels to jam.

Hi

I apologise if this is somewhere else i had a look at the guides but couldnt see an answer.

My daughter and i are looking at trying to make this Blast but she had a question about darts, Does everyone use from a central pool or do we bring our own?

If it is a general pool what type dart is best to bring?

Thanks all

We have a huge dart pool that everyone uses, after each game we do a  dart sweep and replenish the pool ready for the next game.

Within the dart pool we have Elites, Koosh and waffle style darts.

If you bring your own please ensure they are not FVJ's as they are not allowed at our events.

Sadly I am not able to make this event. I will make sure I leave a good few blasters with one of the other organisers.

I should be able to get to this! Whoop! Damn. Gonna have to get me some duct tape tac gear.. And put the order in with BSUK I've been threatening to put in for an age.

EDIT: May have just recruited a family to BB. Walking to the station from tech day with my blaster hanging out of my rucksack ended up talking to a guy at the till in the co-op. Mentioned your war and I left him trying to memorise Bristol Blast.

Will be ordering a load of waffle tips ready for this one!

On another note, assuming we're not able to go on the grass if it's not dry, would we be able to tape off part of the carpark to use so that we're not just limited to the path on that side of the building? It became a bit of a narrow corridor last month, with no cover available if you were advancing along it.

Cheers dude. I'm sure that if the grass is dry it won't matter quite as much, because we'll have loads of space. The other alternative I thought about was taping off the carpark as before, but keeping it open on the side by the building, as there's a mixture of grass and paving slabs here, as well as various bits sticking out from the side of the building to act as cover.

On another note, I'm mildly surprised that my load out vid was not as horrendous as feared. Nice work!

I will import some super-charged coffee or something from somewhere to make it to this one. With NP113 and L11 both being out of action, I suppose I should lend a hand. Smile

Oh and I'll remember to turn my camera on this time!

Fuck it, why not? Can do a HvZ loadout this time to go with my standard loadout from BB7.
