Davidov's Saturday Skirmish 2! September 10th

HENDON Nerf WAR

Privet Comrades!
Long time coming but here we have it, the second Davidov's Saturday Skirmish. It just goes to show the hard work and effort all the other war organisers go to to keep bringing you their brilliant looking games that it has taken this long for me to get a second in.

!!!!! Read  through this post before asking questions about blasters, eyepro, etc please, lots of repeat questions last time !!!!!


Date & time

Saturday 10th Septemberl 11am-4pm

Location
The war will be located in Sunny Hill park in Hendon, north west London, meeting near the main entrance carpark, pass the café to find the Nerf types opposite, near the tennis courts. Once people are gathered we will be using a few different spots for games.

The parks café website, with maps etc is http://www.sunnyhillcafe.co.uk/# this is the nearest source of lunch but there are lots of shops, pubs and takeaways by the other park exits.

Those travelling by London underground have a short walk to the park where they can take note of which pub/takeaway looks like their favourite option, busses have a choice of Hendon central or directly outside some of the park exits depending on which direction they are coming from.

Games
I will add/change this section based on popular demand, but will keep the supply from and D&D as they worked so well previously.

Death matches to get us warmed up, team/individual/one shots followed by a mix of the below as time permits.

Supply drop
Teams fight over several crates across the battlefield and return them to their respective bases, will also be doing the variant which I think worked extremely well as the 2nd/3rd game of this last time.

Defend and destroy
Both teams defend their own base while attempting to hit 3 targets in the opponents base. I hope to have upgraded the base targets for something more reliable

Zombie
Nothing else seems to end the day on as high a note so will likely finish our day with a variation on zombie.

Safety & Behaviour
1- Blasters to be in original or brightly coloured schemes, nothing to alarm other park users, performance will be on an individual basis. I won’t be slowing things down to chrono so if you’re primary is modded and there is any chance it might be judged as over powered make sure you have a backup on hand.

2- Darts, Nerf brand or koosh by default, as a rule of thumb anything without compression will be a no, so no Full vinyl jackets, voberries or nipples etc. Quite a few turned up last time and I can't stress how big a problem this is due to the chance of injuring not only each other but random onlookers and their children, if you do not know what the difference is please don't assume. Use this guide as reference

3- As per the guide by UKNerfWar eye protection required,

4- & Anyone under 18 needs parental permission, under 16 a chaperone.

5- Above all else, don’t be a prat.[/b]


If you made it this far I look forward to seeing you next month!

I should be attending. This will be my 10th Nerf war, so according to BGUKs logic, I will be a seasoned veteran. Yay.

EDIT: Wait, the 10th is GuN, I might not be able to attend.

Last time was great fun, so I'm in.

Edit: May even get around to fitting my hobby mods longshot kit, think I bought it about a year ago Embarassed
Davidov

bah, this is the second time I clashed without realising it, I'll see what people think over the weekend then re-assess as it'll be a while before I can run anything after that as I'll be out of the country till start of october.
old_man_nerf

You run an event in London, we'll do one in Leeds. That's about 200 miles apart. There are very few (one?) players that would have to choose between both events.

Better to have more events and more clashes on the calendar than the other way round......
aKindlyBeast

Myself and three others will be attending..... Very much looking forward to testing out my modulus...

You make a good point, though I was amazed at the distances people had travelled last time and glad the weather held out as that's the only factor that ever worries me about these.

Full steam ahead people

Wooohooooo

Definitely, coming, will be my first ever war, due to such a southeastern residence. Think me and UKNW are the only ones here!
Davidov

Quite a lot of us, certainly the Nerf-Larpers are concentrated down south as there are hundreds of them south of me, though I think the most of the one's likely to Nerf as well are level with London.
North257

Me and 1 or 2 others are hoping to be there Smile

I did not mean south east London-wise, I meant south east country-wise!
daniel k

I have knock off elites, compress the same as normal darts so not fvj's, but not elite or koosh either. Are these OK?
daniel k

Triple post Very Happy but its a separate subject, can confirm I will have 3 people with a possible 4th. Also, the special farces game types look pretty good, could we try them?
HailFireYork

I'm in, sounds like it'll be a blast.
haloxxbilly

If you want something a bit closer than london, Grim up Nerf will be on in Leeds on the 10th
HailFireYork

I'm in the South East for the summer so the London one is more accessible for me. My next delivery of koosh may arrive after the 10th, could anyone bring 100 for £10 for me?

dabrad89

What sort of numbers have we got ?
daniel k

Counted roughly 15, but if some people can come will be close to 20.

EDIT: will keep on updating this, so roughly 16 conformed with 25-ish if all people confirm.
jja

will be there, likely will bring a few friends again. just sorting out plans, will confirm soon.
Sparky2504

I'll be there and may have 1 more but they said they'll confirm tonight
haloxxbilly

Sorry guys, I can't come to this one sadly, I'm going to a wedding. Have fun though. See you at the next one.
n_g

Dammit, looking like it'll be fairly wet tomorrow.
FDT

Have a great one guys Smile
Davidov

Da, looks like we might get a bit damp, I might drag the gazebo out for the kit and break area.

Temperature still supposed to be fairly warm though, worst case we make haste over to the copthall swimming pool carpark and skirmish in the woods ne if people are ok with the higher dart turn over.
dabrad89

Fine by me .. Will be bringing a waterproof jacket
.... Just added a BSUK elite spring to the already beefy spring in my nitefinder ... It's a canon watch out for pistol rounds!
Justajolt

Have fun tomorrow!
daniel k

Still on for today?[/b]
dabrad89

How's the weather in London so far
blindgeekuk

have a blast today guys, especially the solent guys coming over!
Davidov

Light rain that's stopped for the moment.

The internet says it will be lighter at lunch, about the same in the afternoon easing off towards the evening so I think we're in luck.
jja

Thank you again for hosting. a great war despite the drizzle. great to meet and play with everyone.
Boff
