Light saber battle w/foam sword pre-game


http://youtu.be/b49pYCuFlmc


CALL ME if you can't find us!!! Do NOT Text, they will not go through. [masked]-2744.

The past few lightsaber battles were a success, so lets get in another one before the big light saber battle in Washington square park (08/09/14)!

Don't be intimidated, everyone is welcome, first-timers, professional sword fighters; whether you have a $5 saber or a custom blade! Just come out and join the fun! We'll meet by the statues in front of the entrance to the park at Columbus circle. Open to any better locations if fairly accessible.

At the last battle we found a great spot to fight at, (under one of those little bridges so we can start before it gets dark! Less mosquitoes too! )

The rules are pretty open to suggestion but typically we take turns doing 1vs1 or 1vs1vs1.
-No contact to the face or groin
-hand shots don't count
-hits to arms or legs count as losing that limb
-torso shots count as a kill
-lightweight nerf weapons are allowed if you prefer.
-we can do non-contact rounds as well if you don't feel comfortable with contact.

Since we take turns and are pretty laid back, if you don't have a weapon we will let you use one of ours, just come join the fun!

**PICTURES FROM LAST BATTLE are now up!** http://www.meetup.com/Astoria-Long-Island-City-Geek-Adventure-Group/photos/all_photos/?photoAlbumId=23319272

*Note: Bring your foam weapons too for a few rounds before it gets dark. We will also be trying out some light saber choreography in preparation for:

Eddie's Light Saber Fight Scene (http://www.meetup.com/Extreme-Action-Geek-Adventure-NYC/events/196317042/) happening 08/15/2014!
