And I'll be in a forest for this one. GC2 is that weekend so I'll be yelling orders at the regiment and generally making an idiot of myself. You'll be able to save your ears... Very Happy
Franksie

One I can actually make! Deconfliction with Boff continues!
L11

See, I was sure Franksie wasn't a person but a computer that helps everyone out!! Seeing him at the war will confirm his physical being Razz

It will be good to see you there mate!
Justajolt

Three months in advance???  Check this out for well organised!
UK Foam

Haha thanks justajolt

I'm now trying to organise bb 10 at larger venue

I wasn't sure I'd get in trouble for posting this far in advance but hey ho!

EDIT AND BUMP

Let's get this show on the road!

L11 has used the kitty to refresh the darts with the new waffle tips. I've used the kitty to purchase a further 600 rivals balls which I'm hoping will half fill the rival bin. Newport Nerfer and old noob are sorting team identification.

We will also hopefully have some more coming too!


EDIT

Sorted the double post, please remember to copy the last post into a new one, then delete the old one instead of double posting. ON

L11

We will be well and truly be stocked up for this one!

I'll have to make up for missing the last war.
Im brining a new primary aswell so looking forward to testing it out.
Boff

Enjoy yourselves, folks. I'll be busy saving the universe... Razz
L11

Just a quick update, as a team (and support from ON, thanks BTW!) we have just bought 80 Buff's, 40 red and 40 blue.
This will solve all our team identity problems from now on!

They are coming from Chinaland, we are really hoping they will arrive for this war, if not deffinalty BB10.

We all thank you for your service and contribution towards keeping us safe!
Davera

Thankfully I can make this one. Looking forward to seeing everyone there.
NewportNerfer113

I too will also be in attendance.  Ready to take my new tactical rig out for the first time.  Many thanks to the non-unionised minions at BSUK for making it Smile

Really looking forward to it, hopefully the buffs (cheers for the contribution ON) will have arrived in time.

Oh they're unionised. Literally, I feed them or I go out the window. It's a perfect example of how industrial relations should work. Management and workers on a perfectly level playing field.

Make sure you check radios are charged before the event. I went into GC1 with a couple of mine flat and it buggered my weekend. The Baofengs don't have a battery warning light, they just try and talk to you literally as they're about to go flat. Which is unhelpful... Razz
Zenif

I will be there hopefully with the 2 kids too.

This time I have made a new barrel for the rayven, so I will spend more time shooting around doors and less time shooting them point blank!

Also thanks yes.. the jaw healed quite well I was only on soup for 4 days ;D
Treezy

Arrrggghhhhh I'm getting excited for this one! Don't think I'll have anything new with me this time, unless those Hooligan wheels turn up before the event. I'm going to try and bring only what I need this time, rather than my usual approach of "I'll take that in case something else breaks/I might fancy using that/someone might want to borrow that...."

I've got half a dozen Bolle safety glasses to add to the BB armoury too, and I'll be bringing 100 darts for the pool.

Not sure if Julie's coming, but if she is then I recommend a gum shield for Zenif.
L11

Look what has arrived!
These should be brilliant for team identification. I'm impressed with the quality and speed of delivery.

Probably wear them like a bandana or arround the arms for easy visibility

Davera

These look great, should be versatile enough that you can wear them however you like.
Franksie

I'll be there.  Will arrive with 13 mags of new xtip waffles and will leave with them empty - hopefully that's ok?
Boff

I'm not an organiser but that's pretty much what I do each event. Smile
UK Foam

Franksie that's more than enough! Thankyou
Filadams

Is there car parking at the venue? Hoping to come and bring a few along.
L11

Franksie - That would be more than enough pal, see you there.

Filadams - Yes there is plenty of free parking in the venue.
Filadams

Is it me, or is the address on the facebook event different?!?
NewportNerfer113

A post has been put on the Facebook page confirming the venue. It's the one on the original Britnerf post.  We are at the chapel on Downend Road.

For some unknown reason Facebook used the a different GPS location. It's happened before and we aren't sure why. You also can't change the GPS location once the event has been created without deleting it and starting again. Which we didn't want to do.

Sorry for any confusion.

I'm looking forward to a great day. Rain or shine (probably rain).
old_man_nerf

Aye, Facebook can be 'helpful' at times with address. It links the chapel we use on the opposite side of a busy road!

Either way have a blast today!
