    [Cancelled] Sydney War - Bicenntennial Park, Homebush - April 26th

    Post  Synergie on Wed Apr 06, 2011 4:07 pm

    Get ready for Sydney's third Nerf war in a matter of weeks.

    When: Tuesday, 26th of April, 11:30am to 4pm

    Where: Bicenntennial Park, Homebush Bay. Meeting/Parking HERE, unless some of you have been there recently, we'll go a little walk around the park scouting locations.

    General Rules & Guidelines:
    • Whether I call myself an "admin" or an "organiser", my job is to arrange a day for the war and try guide participants through games, that said, I am always open to suggestions and happy to have others come on board to run games. I am an easy going person, but I like having "somewhat" organised games
    • If you are hit by a dart in ANY part of the body, you are OUT [scream out HIT](Hit) and must return to the safe zone.
    • If your gun is hit, you are OUT (Gun Hit)
    • If you hit someone and they continue to play, call them out.
    • Don't cheat in general, it's a game of tag.
    • Don't argue with the person who calls a hit on you.
    • Report to one of the organisers about a possible cheater and we will monitor them to see if they continue to do so.
    • Eye Protection is a must, you only have two eyes, try to keep them intact!
    • Melee weapons are allowed IF it is made from very soft foam. If you are to meet or sneak on a player and you have no weapon, just place your hand on there should to say I’ve got you. This is to avoid close shooting encounters from high end blasters
    • You are NOT allowed to pick up darts when you are dead or ‘tagged’. You can pick up darts when you are alive.

    Greets to littlebro as some the rules stated here are his.

    If you think I've missed something or have something to add, just tell me.


    War is cancelled, due to lack of interest, expect to see a new war thread located at Hurstville Heritage Park.

    Are there any restrictions on blasters?

    I may or may not come to this war. I have three assignments due pretty much straight after the midsem break -.-

    No restrictions on blasters, we'll just man-up and take the pain. I am in a similar position as you, I have a few assignments I'll be working on over the break, one of which is worth a whopping 60%, however I am *gifting* myself this day as a reward for my hard work.

    Are we having a "dart standard"?

    I know not everyone has access to inf0rm3r's darts, but those that do will have an instant advantage in distance and the ability to welt opponents.

    I'm waiting on Informer's silicon tip darts. He said they'd be available on the 31st but I don't think he updated his thread with prices or anything.

    If anyone has any information on that, it would be much appreciated.

    Can melee deflect bullets (with the exception of shield)?

    I emphasise deflect as swinging a sword/axe at a bullet(s) is harder than blocking with an axe/really fat blade.

    I use bluefoam with black snap caps from ebay (assuming that is informer selling them)

    I have 200~ of them and about 150 streamline, with 50 camo whistlers. I will use primarily stingers and whistlers on the day.

    I'll probably go to this war, seeing as it's in Bicentennial, instead of the Centennial Park war, seeing as it's annoying getting down there. Thanks for hosting Synergie

    It's actually easier to get to Centennial Park. Buses go directly there if you know which to get on. But as long as you're going to a war, no one's going to complain

    Pro's drive themselves or get driven if they cannot drive!

    I'd feel a little weird getting on a train or bus with my gear, all power to you if you choose to do so however.

    EDIT: Just had the thought that leaving our unused gear on a park bench while we're out playing a game is a security risk. I propose we stow our gear in my car boot and other's who drove as well if they are happy to, thoughts?

    I think that's a good idea! Bicentennial Park can get busy at times with walkers and cyclists. But is your boot big?

    I call my Corolla the "Lan-mobile" I can take 2 to 3 friends plus myself and all of our computers to LAN parties, the boot is fairly big and I can put the back seats down if necessary.

    Since Bicentennial Park is at the entrance to the Olympic Park precinct, follow the signs to Olympic Park, the entrance to Bicentennial Park is hard to miss, look for the clock tower, see the street view image HERE.

    If you or your parents own 2-way CB radios, I invite you to bring them along as I will be bringing my two radios, we could get some real tactical action going.

    To an FYI to those who didnt know like I did, this Easter LONG weekend is VERY long this year, it is FIVE days, from Friday to TUESDAY. This is due to ANZAC Day and Easter Monday falling on the same day, therefore Tuesday is now proclaimed the "ANZAC Day Holiday". It is unlikely your parents are working, Easter Monday is a no-go for me, the family is away Friday/Saturday/Sunday, that is why I could have warred then, but on their return Sunday night, we are having an Easter get together on Easter Monday.

    This war is now precisely two weeks away!!

    Bit stalkerish you found me :P, but anyway, I grew up Roselands, so I know the area well, I used to live in Kent Avenue, behind Roselands Pool. You're only about 10minutes drive from where I live now in Lugarno and the proposed war location at Gannons Park.

    Hey guys, I may be able to get to this one- as in I more than likely will. Sound s good and an ideal location to boot. By the way, if anyone here wants to join the NSW Nerfers Facebook group here. , feel free to. also, if any of the current member are reading this, you may get a friend request from a guy with The Stig from Top Gear as their profile pic. That's me!

    IMPORTANT:

    I may or may not be working on this day, depending on the shift Im working this war can go ahead, but there's a big Maybe. Need expressions of interest from attendees whether they can make a war on Wednesday the 27th (the next day), if most of you cannot make that day and Im given work, Ill try and palm the shift off to someone else, however if most of you can make it, I will go and work because more money is always nice!

    I cannot make Wednesday if that ends up being the day, due to school going back. A few others may also have this problem.

    Seems your schools aren't cool enough to have a Pupil free day, given this I will try to not work, unless I am only given a shift at night, in which case, no problems.

    Now my mum can be bothered taking me, so I can't come all of a sudden. I'm seriously sick of this! I'm really sorry to all of the event organisers who have put me down as a maybe and then had to forget about me when I said I couldn't come. I am still yet to attend a war.

    Do not assume it was your decision to not come that was the sole catalyst for cancelling this war, overall there was not enough interest to warrant holding a war.
