Post The Southern Fairies - Tactical Training Day  Reply with quote
Ok... so I think we've settled on the team name, so if it changes after this post, well I'll look like a right fool.

After speaking with Boff and OldNoob about BoB 2017, us Fairies need to up our game.  Boff and I had a chat at the recent Bristol Blast and agreed it would be great if he could "do his thing", and make us a bit more of a challenge for them Northerners Smile

The plan is to do this on The Downs in Bristol as it is fairly central and easy (ish) to get to.  So there are a couple of options to choose from in the poll, and you can use this thread to let us know if you will be coming along.  

I'm going to assume, as it hasn't been discussed, that anyone can actually come along, whether from South or North or Wales.  But I'll let Boff come along shortly and shout about that stuff, and what not.

Moved to general discussion at Boffs request. Important to everyone not just BoB attendees.

Indeed. This is open to anyone who wants to know how to fight in an open field environment like the Downs or the expected Battle of BritNerf site. All are welcome if you're willing to learn. Smile

Is this a war dressed up as a training exercise or a training exercise dressed up as a war?

One of those sounds really dull.

Neither, it's a Training Day dressed up as a Training Day.  It'll be as fun as it sounds.... however, there will be some valuable learning opportunities.  They won't always be needed in every Nerf war, but if the tool isn't in your kit you can't use it.

Sounds good we could do with some tactical tips and techniques!

I am sure it'll be fun anyway and I can bring cake and have a picnic if all else fails!

Not sure on the team name so far though, perhaps Southern Pirates or Brizzol blasters, cause lets face it, Bristol is the Nerf capital of the south!

If all else fails I guess we could become Nerf herders Wink

I am keen to see this run, hopefully the weather plays ball. We have some good stuff panned, it will be a mix of short bursts of theory followed by lots of shooting. Outline is coming together, so if you want in please vote on a day so we can fix it.
Any players are welcome, from anywhere, wether or not you are playing at BoB although BoB attendees can expect some leadership/squad work whatever the rest of the players are doing.

Only just seen this post. Very eager to attend, however the date selections suck.

Is there any chance we could do a Sunday as we are not venue dependant? Just throwing it out there.

Provided it's not a GC weekend, I can do pretty much any weekend, Saturday or Sunday. Smile

How about I add a Sunday to the May date as that's away from everything?

Happy to move dates around/add more options based on what people can do.  Let me know and I'll update the OP.

Please change the date selections if possible.

I need to learn not to rush on my own, and not to drop my mags eveywhere...

You know those cords that kids have on their gloves to keep them from losing them.... you can get those fitted to your mags..... Wink

That's genius! I'm now imagining Davera ending up with some weird hula-skirt made of mags and bungee cords at the end of every game.

Date wise, Saturdays work best for me, but I can generally do any Sunday other than the second Sunday of the month.

Can you guys add Sunday 7th as a poll option? Plus maybe one more?

It's probably best to recast the entire poll and allow for multiple choice. Have people select every date they can attend rather than the one they prefer. It gives a better idea of when people can attend and if people only want to express a single preference they still can. Smile
