Ponies Vs Changlings Nerf Party

 

Nerf Party with zombie vs human campaigns in a coat of MLP veneer.

Map: http://www.pgparks.com/Assets/Parks+$!26+Recreation/Nature/Watkins+Regional+Park/watkins+regional+park+map.pdf

Parking: Parking is available at the Central Area Office

Where to meet up: Please meet up at the ballfield area, but not inside it. From there we will decide to have the Nerf fun in an open field or a wooded area.

Hey guys, I'm postponing this until the Spring due to a multitude of events going on through October. (But keep your eyes posted! I'll still be adding more details). I was hoping to develop a good scenario by then.

I was hoping to use some nerf swords per the scenario, though I haven't seen them on sale in retail for a while now.  I'm gonna wait to see if they're restocked for the Christmas season first. If not, we'll just plan around it.

    I wish I could've attended this, but my wheelchair's batteries aren't lasting even half as long as they should. (I'm getting them replaced very soon.)

    Still, I'm glad I could get to Board & Brew, while some of you were still there. (I was delayed getting there by needing to wait an hour for a bus that's supposed to run every 20 minutes, then missing 2 buses on the second route, even though I was at the stop.)

    Sorry I had to leave early, but man that was a lot of fun and a good workout! Thanks to all that came out today and based off of this meetup, this won't certainly be the last of its kind! Plus I am looking into having a pavilion for a picnic meetup later on in the summer so when those details come forth, I'll share it with everyone. Thank you again to all that helped out with the games and all!

  • Josh T.

    Due to a small communication error that is my fault, I have lost my rideshare. Is anyone able to get me?

    May 16

    • Josh T.

      On my way, found an Uber promo code that would make it affordable

      May 16

  • Johnathan I. T.

    So when you come in, turn to the right and left to enter. Then the parking lot would be to the right.

    May 16

  • Johnathan I. T.

    Where to meet up: Tomorrow at 11 am, meet up at the ballfield area (map: http://www.pgparks.com/Assets/Parks+$!26+Recreation/Nature/Watkins+Regional+Park/watkins+regional+park+map.pdf). From there, we will decide whether to play in an open area or in a wooded area.

    • Johnathan I. T.

      Right at the parking lot, thought it's easier to meet there near the tennis courts instead of further in.

      What are you wearing?

    Anyone bringing extra darts? Noticed I can't find my darts. I was able to find 4 in my room haha

    Anyone able to give me a ride if not i can take metro

    May 15

  • Rich W.

    Earlier this week I was really gung-ho about going. But it's been a long week for me of traveling and I'm really tired and burned out. So I'm gonna give this event a miss. See you all next time!

    Does this end at 2:00 PM?

  • Alex H.

    So the chance of thunderstorms. . .

    May 15

    • Josh T.

      Supposed to be scattered. Probably won't be much more than the brief storm that hit Applecon evening last year.

      May 15

  • Alex H.

    In fear of lack off nerf guns/ swords or whatever i would say that rolled up socks absolutely count as viable ammo

    1 · May 14

    • Aaron E.

      Sounds safe, long as they don't have anything inside of them.

      May 14

  • Alex H.

    Is this a house that we are meeting up at?

    May 14

  • Johnathan I. T.

    Hey guys, I had to move the time up to 11 am because I work at 4 pm. Looking forward to seeing everyone! Will tell you where parking is before long.

    May 14

  • Terry S.

    (Admins, feel free to tell me to shut up if you need to)

    To anyone bringing extra stuff or particularly darts, if you expect them back it can be good to mark them in some fashion (e.g. initials on darts with sharpie or a short alias). If you decide to be a hero and bring extra darts in case folk don't have enough or want to reload, bonus points (buzz bee suction tips and Elite clip-system Nerf darts would be the ideal types that between them fit almost everything).

  • Nicholas U.

    if we're going by HvZ rules are balled up socks allowed? and in lieu of foam nerf swords i have several old extendable light sabers. would those be okay to use?

    May 11

    • Josh T.

      If you bring the lightsabers, I will whip out my old Jedi duel training ;)

      May 13

    • Terry S.

      And my axe!

      Pro tip though if melees somehow happen - Nerf brand swords actually kinda hurt. The maces or axes aren't as bad, nor are some off-brand swords (e.g. Buzz Bee).

      May 14

  • Josh T.

    May I have a rideshare?

    May 10

    • Josh T.

      Bumping this request!

      May 13

    • Nicholas U.

      if you have money for gas i can give ya a lift

      May 14

  • Max S.

    I'll probably not be able to make this, but if things work out we should do another one of these some time in the Autumn.

    May 13

  • Terry S.

    Hmm. Hoping I can still make this - if I can, I'll bring my (less than it used to be but still sizeable) arsenal of blasters. Also, for folks lending stuff out, from personal experience it's good to mark your own stuff in some fashion if you intend to get it back.

    May 11

  • Bass Hooves (Chase G.

    This is happening i got the word from thomen

    May 10

  • Rich W.

    Is this still happening? And does anypony have any extra guns? And if you do what kind of ammo does it use and I can borrow it please ? I just thought Ill bring ammo, never have enough! And what about afterwards? Cook out?

    May 10

  • Josh T.

    Can I please borrow some equipment? I don't have any.

    May 10

  • Jaye V.

    So many questions, not one an answer!

  • Alex H.

    So are we meeting at someones house or the field. Is it a park?

    May 10

  • Mad Matt (Matt A.

    This sounds like so much fun, but of course Slaveway has to ruin my life again. If this is the date it's going to be, I can't make it! :(

  • Toolkit C.

    sadly I am not gonna be able to make it next week Saturday. :( I work that day...

  • Ganey

  • Harrison N.

    Swftkat, this would be a schedule conflict for both of us, no?

    May 9

  • Torch(Nathan K.

    1) Do we need to bring our own nerf guns? 2) Can I please get a ride?

    May 9

  • Aaron E.

    Don't know if somepony already asked but, do we bring our own nerf guns or will they be provided?

    April 30

  • Kawaii F.

    Well time to bring out my airsoft gear. Well just the tactical gear I wear hehe O(≧∇≦)O

    April 26

  • Johnathan I. T.

    Update: The meetup will be at Watkins Park in PG county! The exact date will be announced at a later time as availability and approval process completes its course.

    March 11

  • Terry S.

    If this is gonna happen, we'll need a place to play and a location (looks like Jonathan had been looking at something, but it might not work out).

    I will say that, as someone who helped run UMD's Nerf events for 5 years, I'd be more than happy to assist in setting zombie games up for folk if we get a time and place.

    January 20, 2015

  • Jody D.

    This is still a live, to be planned out completely event, correct? I'm new to the group, but what better way to meet new friends than to go to war with them? I'd need some equipment though, don't have any of my own.

    January 17, 2015

  • Josh T.

    Let me know when and I'll bring some Baltimare people! Is there an RSVP limit?

    November 23, 2014

  • Max S.

    So, does anybody have any information regarding dates, locations, and so on?

    September 22, 2014

    • Johnathan I. T.

      As of right now, I am shooting for Watkins Park in PG county as a possible location. Hopefully I will have something in the next few weeks. Won't be til the spring time however since well, not sure if people will enjoy doing this in below freezing temps lol

    • Prism

      YEAH! WE'RE BACK BABY!!!!

      November 23, 2014

  • Nick E.

    I can get my own equipment but I have no outfit deal for this. What colors will the twams be and I can just wear something that matches those colors.

    August 12, 2014

    • Nick E.

      Teams*

      August 12, 2014

    • Terry S.

      One quick way is to cut strips of cheap fabric or use a band of caution tape that dangles off the arm (or head, in the case of zombies). One color per team, done!

      August 12, 2014

  • Prism

    We might be able to rent out a park somewhere ta do this....

    1 · August 11, 2014

    • Toolkit C.

      Either that or we might have to find a random part of the wilderness to do battle in, just be prepared to lose some bolts XD

      1 · August 12, 2014

  • Prism

    This.... this is still happening.... right?

    June 5, 2014

    • Toolkit C.

      Me thinks so, but with the conflict of venue we had to rework it. If you know of a good area we can do it please any pony speak up.

      1 · June 6, 2014

  • Alex H.

    i have plenty of equipment for about 6-8 people

    April 22, 2014

  • Alex H.

    this sounds awesome, ill wait for a date and venue

    April 6, 2014

  • Engineer B.

    Meetup will be postponed until another venue can be found. Timeline indeterminate.

    February 19, 2014

  • Phil L.

    ok so there is this meetup and its on derpy day... would it be a stretch to take the metro to dc then have derpy day too after?

    February 18, 2014

    • AppleJack

      Isn't Derpy Day March 3rd, though?

      February 18, 2014

    • Phil L.

      nope march 1st each year

      February 18, 2014

  • Josh T.

    I RSVP'd but I'm going to need to borrow equipment as I don't own any.

    February 18, 2014

  • Engineer B.

    Stand by for further updates on this event.

    February 13, 2014

  • Terry S.

    Update from my earlier post - given how things currently sit with legal (according to the UMD Nerf Club President), campus would probably have an issue with *anyone* using blasters outside, club-based or not. Even if they don't hurt the campus Nerf club for it, you really don't want PG county police harassing you.

    Your best bet would be to aim for HvZ Invitationals (UMBC throws one every now and again, for instance), or we do also have events every now and again at College Park, indoors. In fact, Tomorrow (February 7th), we have the entire 2nd floor of the Student Union for a few hours. (short notice, yes, but this is our first event of the semester) https://www.facebook.com/events/247537072093767

    February 6, 2014

    • Terry S.

      Short version - if you're gonna run this, don't do it on campus or bad times will be had all around. But UMD's Nerf Activity Society is happy to otherwise sate your Nerfing needs - we even have spare blasters at all our events.

      February 6, 2014

  • Terry S.

    Hold the phone. Is this taking place *on* campus, outside? If so, that'd be a very delicate situation for the Nerf club that already exists on campus (of which I've been a moderator for 4 years now). The short version is, the situation's a bit delicate - the *club* isn't supposed to use Nerf paraphernalia outdoors, though technically there's no such restriction to anyone outside the club. The problem is, if they think you're associated with us, they're gonna come down on us for it.

    If you like, I could ping our club president to see if there might be some avenue we can help you pursue.

    3 · January 26, 2014

    • Terry S.

      Oh, no trouble at all, really - I'm one of the club moderators so I kinda need to be at the meetings anyway :P

      Anywho, I'll bring up whether we want to check if an outside group hosting is okay (I know all of campus is unlikely), but you would all certainly be welcome to our event this coming Friday (and for those unfamiliar with larger scale Nerf games, this'd be a good one to go to) https://www.facebook.c...­

      February 1, 2014

    • Terry S.

      Edit to above* Campus isn't comfortable with *anything* all-encompassing of campus right now. And you'd be welcome at any of our events (we try to have at least a couple each semester), but the one above is our first one this semester.

      February 2, 2014

  • Josh T.

    Are we required to have our own equipment?

    January 4, 2014

    • Josh T.

      I need to know what I'll need to bring if I decide to participate.

      January 26, 2014

  • Jaye V.

    Oh dear Luna, yes all of my yes!
