Canberra Nerf War!!
The event will be held on Saturday the 15th of January. Safety briefing will be held at 11.00am and the first game will start at 11.30am. If you turn up at 11.45 you will not enter the playing area until the finish of the first game and a moderator gives you a safety briefing. We aim to finish up by 4 – 4.30pm. There will be a 30 minute break 1.30 – 2.00pm. This will give you a chance to have a rest, have a drink and/or something and have a chat.
The event will be held in the extreme Western section of Haig Park in Turner/O’Connor. The section of park we are using is set by the boundaries of McCaughey, Masson, Froggatt and Ormond/Condamine Streets. The assembly point/car parking area is at the child care centre on Ormond/Condamine Streets. There are toilets and shops 500mtrs North-east of the assembly point (follow Condamine St until it joins up with MCaughey St and then turn left).
If you look at it via satellite the playing area doesn’t look very impressive: type "Treehouse in the Park, 57 Ormond St, Turner ACT" into Search Maps on Google Maps and you will see the playing area. On the ground it’s actually a pretty decent spot (and the satellite image seems a bit old).
Missions/games run on the day will be Capture the Flag, Squad Deathmatch and 'free-for-all eliminations.
Games will be moderated. There will be a moderator in each team and a ‘roving’ moderator. They will be responsible for gameplay and your safety. Their decision on any matter is final.
Guns mods are allowed. Dart mods are not. Let me repeat that – no modded darts/ammo. No stefans, no weights or pins in the end – standard foam darts. This is for your own and everybody else’s safety. There will be a safety briefing before any gameplay and your darts will be checked by a moderator.
There are no age restrictions. HOWEVER, this is not an organised club event, nor is it affiliated with any group. That means we won’t be providing first aid or refreshments so if you're under the age of 16 please make your parents aware of this.
The event will not work without you bringing common sense and good gamesmanship with you. If you can’t do this then please don’t come.
