I'd do all of the above, except games limited to only Nerf Super Soakers, only pinch trigger pistols, or only squirt pistols. Those things fail the minimum threshold to have a "water war". Although, I'd do NSS if it includes all NSS, not just those under the branded line (Shot Blast and Quick Blast for example). I'd also do pinch trigger if it weren't just limited to pistols. Pinch trigger soakers are actually among the largest soakers there are, offbrands can be larger than CPS. You can make their outputs huge (but forget about any kind of range).
Ultimately, drive distance is more important to me than what's being used. I am limited by money and vehicle safety concerns, not interest or even drive time. I'll tolerate more than 12 hours of solo driving in all-weather, but my car needs to be fixed in order to even think about long trips anymore. The venue is important, too. I wouldn't be thrilled about traveling long distance to do something that can be done in CT/NY. The venue needs to have a specific reason to play there and not elsewhere.
