    • Street: Stadium Drive, turn left from Keilor Park Drive after exiting the M79 Calder Fwy outbound from the CBD
    • Meeting Place: First carpark on the left upon entering from the roundabout near the playground (tennis courts carpark)


    What to Bring:

    • appropriate blasters and equipment (primaries, secondaries, shields etc.)
    • darts (suggested amount is 100+) and other munitions (eg. grenades)

    Attendee List

    Confirmed

    • myself

    • Frankie27
    • kd_1812


    It's a 24 hour park, so don't sweat it.

    I will be refereeing some of the matches, so be on your best behavior or I'll start busting up some balls. During morning and midbreak, you can get the chance to do your nerf bazaar trading so make sure you bring the appropriate amount of cash to do so. Apart from that, post here whether you are able to come and if possible, list any wares you may be providing. If you have any personal requests as to what modified blasters you may want to buy or trade, post here and I'll see what I can provide.

    Given the facilities here, there are BBQs located near the playground available for lunch and whatnot. And as Matt has verified, the locations of the restrooms are on the map he has provided

    Stay tuned for more.

    I'll plan on coming. I suspect Brunius will come along too, and probably the smaller kiddies -- I have converted TrueBlue's stampede to 18V, and he's dying to use it.

    No, I intend on mauling everyone with blasters and vortex howlers that will massacre and dominate the whole field, lol.

    Nah, you should be fine. If I can get my stuff done in the next two weeks, I will hopefully have a bunch of loaner blasters to help everyone pumped up and ready from the get go.

    Probably not. I'm assuming it's got a decent range, so you'll be sniping anyway, and you'll probably have a decent chance to shoot anyone before they get within range of a secondary anyway....

    How tactical are these wars?
    And out of a Maverick, Vulcan, Long-Shot, and Recon what do you think I should use?

    It's pretty easy to get into the flow of the wars. Just show up with whatever you like. I'd recommend the longshot but if they are all unmodded then there's not a lot of difference.

    Errrhmmm... not very.

    Some people like to charge and shoot everything in sight (Maverick, Vulcan, Recon).

    Others like to sit back, move in slowly, and snipe from a distance (LongShot, Recon).

    We pick sides based on "you lot start over there and we'll start here", and the people on your team are usually strangers with differing levels of experience.

    And out of a Maverick, Vulcan, Long-Shot, and Recon what do you think I should use?

    What do you like to do? If I'm going to charge and run around a lot, I'll use the Alpha Trooper. Now that I have a modded Longshot, I might give sniping a go. If you can, bring them all and try out different styles to see what suits you.

    hope this helps,

    So, people keep asking me what it is that I have going on with my bazaar. Therefore, here it is:

    • 2x NIB yellow Mavs at $12.50 each
    • 1x new Wipeout pistol at $20
    • 1x NIB LAHB at $70
    • 1x BBBB (green/blue) at $65
    • 2x BT LS V2 springs for $12.50 each

    I can also follow up with the following commissions if you need me to (contact me for further details). You may wish to do a direct swap and pay for materials/labour, but here are the prices accordingly for a complete model:

    • Triple Shots/Shot Guns at the base price of $100
    • Hand Cannons at the base price of $75

    I currently have the following items reserved for those coming (which are not factored in the bazaar listings):

    boosted6

    • 1x LAHB
    • 1x BBBB
    • 2x Wipeout pistols
    • 1x Airzone 8 Dart Blaster


    TooBz

    • 2x BT LS V2 springs


    Please contact me, guys, if you want those orders altered or clarified. Thanks.

    Now save up and give me moneys already.

    I was really wanting to go to a MEL Nerf war but I wont be able to make this one. Missus is due around that time but I will definitely be down for the next one, pending work of course.

    No probs, the springs should be available if you want any too.

    Sure, just make sure you both are aware that you wear the appropriate protective gear like eyewear.

    Give back to your fellow member and buy his wares. All profits stay in Australia, tune up my VR SS V8, and more.
    In case you're curious about my WTB requests or my Triple Shot products.

    Don't worry, I've compiled a list so far of us VIC crew here, yo.

    Also, can you people start putting titles in PMs? I can't be bothered trying to figure out what the subject and context is within a PM.
