    same bat time, same bat park

    well thats 2, so with my mate thats 4 of us. well if there is not a lot of interest we might just call it an "almost war"
    and we turn up and see what happens, i would have thought that more of us would have posted by now

    actualy, as there seems to be little interest we might postpone it for a while and see if more people are at lwast willing to suggest an alternative
    date for the war, maybe something more agreeable so more of us can come along...what say you?

    30th isn't the greatest because its the second or third last day of the school holidays and many people will be getting organised to go to school and such and I need joggers.

    May I put forward not a the 31st which is a monday and everyone should be ready to go to school (hopefully) and be resting and whats more awsome than ending your holidays with a bang!

    Another idea for more tacticool gameplay and a new playfield perhaps we could have the war at jesmond park (or what ever that park is NW of lampton) has cover and such like the little playground for the kiddys (they won't be there they go back to school on the 31st) and massive drains for trolls which could meen a epic CTF or TMD also what gametypes are you putting forward to play?

    Oh before I forget what happend about Fort Scratchly if you had messaged me I didn't get it becouse my inbox was full.

    / @kingkottah: have had no official reply for the company that organises the hire of fort scratchly,
    but a .pdf from their website shows that for a group using one of the larger areas available would
    something like $700 for any time up to 4.5 hours and $1100 for more than 4.5 hours.

    i will email them again and see what happens...although one other thought is if we want to go ahead with a fort scratchly war, we
    may want to consider the posability of allowing sydney and centeral coast nerfers to attend to try and make it a better cost for all.

    Wasn't that the plan orginaly because if there is say 10-16 people from just newcastle the cost is roughly 40-70 $ so if we do plan on doing this we should gather atleast the guys from the northern side of sydney and such I belive we should start a topic to suggest and give interest for such an amazing place to have a war.

    If you want I'll start the topic later PM me with idea's and such.

    Also what do you guys think of jesmond park because I think it would be awesome compared to what we have currently.

    We need somewhere with some obstacles because standing out in the open taking pot-shots at each other gets old really fast

    This is the area I reccomend because it has plenty of trees for cover, a massive drain for being a troll and its new.

    Haha, you can almost see my ex-girlfriend's house in that picture.

    Anyway, I want to pass a motion that this be delayed, get a few more people in so we can decide on a day. That way we can have a proper war, not a mexican stand-off

    i concur....a postponement so more ppl can come along is a good idea...oh almost forgot, i heard back from the council about fort Scratchly!!!


    the will need to do a risk assessment due to insurance and it'll likely be $80/hour + a staffing cost....and here is maybe the killer, public
    liability coverage for $10 million. no joke!

    Me, I'm up for a war. Kottah and I Have both disscussed the possibility of having a war at jesmond park? It has trees, quite a few too, it has an area separate from the kiddies play area so we wouldn't be bothered. What do you think?

    i have no issue with jesmond park.

    i am getting a quote for the insurance needed to host an event as fort scratchly, it's no obligation, so i fugure there is no harm in seeing what it's gona cost

    Next weekend sunday? What do you think? No intent to hijack this thread but i believe action is required to get this show on the road. So that would make it as follows
    - 20th of February
    - Jesmond park
    - 11am to 4pm

    Objections?

    Ok guys just so you know the school holidays are comeing up in a month or so, so planning now should give us sufficent time to plan a decent war.


    Please tell me what day is best for you all. For me its Wednsday, Thursday(I think,) Saturday and Sunday so please take your vote on which day is best ill make the thread after school or tomorrow (currently working on my AT3K.)

    Game types probably will be the same as we played on the last ones I organised, any suggestions im quite open.

    The problem I see is that it looks like no one is checking this thread. It might be worth PM'ing the Newcastle guys either informing them about the thread or straight up asking them what dates are good for them

    i guess it's time i wade into this conversation with a suggestion of my own, how about instead of us all trying to arrange random wars, why not make it a weekly or fortnightly activity, like weekend sports? that way, any of us that can turn up, have the choice to do so, and those that can't, can just join in the week after.... its just a thought.
