Re: Autumn Invitational War

We are probably getting together with Keith and Brandon this weekend if anyone else is interested.

Re: Autumn Invitational War

I think my favorite quote was (and I may be paraphrasing)

Stephen: "It feels great out here."

Scott: (we are walking through a swamp at the time) "Yeah, my feet were cold. Now I don't even feel them!"


I will be posting a more detailed war report later.

Re: cps2000 mk2 sale for parts

You can replace the rubber pressure chamber by using PRT. It would be worth something if everything else works, but you probably won't be able to tell unless you replace the bladder.

Re: Autumn Invitational War

Saturday looks to be perfect for fighting, 65 and partly cloudy. If Brandon and Keith are not coming I may make this a more n00b friendly war, but still intense. Expect a lot of CTF and some VIP.

Re: Autumn Invitational War

The weather Saturday is supposed to be perfect - 65 and sunny to partly cloudy.

I have 4 locals who said they are coming. Of course, you can't always count on nonmembers until they are actually there, but that's still a good sign. We have a couple of other people who said they were interested.

Re: Autumn Invitational War

Keith needs a way to get from NY to NC. He texted me and said that his mom may not be leaving early and he is trying to find a way down. His car is not reliable to drive the distance. Scott, do you have any more seats in your vehicle?

Re: Autumn Invitational War

Well often we don't do much, if anything, on Sunday, so we'd probably be back in DC before Monday. Are there any plans for Sunday Marauder? We can fight in the morning if people want. I had planned on doing a full 2 day war, but with everyone coming (which is great) it may be cramped to have everyo...

Re: Autumn Invitational War

I thought the exact same thing when looking at the photos. It reminds me of Paine, what with the pond and some of the terrain. I approve. But I will be out of state on the 29th, so attending isn't really an option for me unfortunately. Have fun and don't forget to take pictures! Also, wi-fi and hot...

Re: Autumn Invitational War

Saturday the 29th and Sunday the 30th. We can do Friday if people show up early enough as the battlefield looks like it would be good for night wars and since it is walking distance from the nephews'. There are 3 main areas of the battlefield - open pine forest with pond & trails, mixed pine and har...

Re: Autumn Invitational War

We are hosting the battle at a new site. Danny actually discovered it. We will have photos this weekend, so stay tuned. Lodging will not be at the barn. Wi-Fi and hot water will be available this time. The new battle site is an easy walk from the new lodging, so if you are worried about a rough hike...

Re: Replacement screws for old Super Soakers

For the price I will definitely have to try these and then compare them to the machine screws I get at the local hardware store. Thanks for posting.

Re: Autumn Invitational War

We will have the war either December 22 or December 29th. Nick and his new wife are staying with us on the weekend of the 15th, and November is too soon to get everyone involved.

I have a lot of locals that plan on coming, so someone please coordinate transportation with Alfatrooper

Re: APH Design Questions

That's weird. Pretty much any Lowes or Home Depot that I know of sells up to 6" pipe. But I've made a gun like this with 3" chambers before, and it was the most unwieldy water gun I've ever used. You definitely want to make the blaster as compact as you can. A good nozzle should still give you bett...

Re: Nerf Super Soakers for 2019

I was trying to find some Stream Machines prior to our last war but could not find any at Target or Wal Mart. I do think that guns like that have their place on battlefields like Little Creek or obviously if you are at the pool or lake. Has anybody seen any of those in their areas? *side note* While...

Re: Nerf Super Soakers for 2019

It's pretty incredible that we are discovering these so early. The Barricuda looks kind of decent. I have never used the soakzooka so I am not sure how the Hydra would be.

Re: A New Twist on CTF - Introducing CTB

I'm such a lightweight that even drinking half a glass of Mike's Hard (IDK how much alcohol it has) means I can hardly stand! I think this would make the game even more amusing. But seriously, no going against what your prescriptions are saying! BTW, any chance we have Soakermore this year? Still t...

Re: Homemade pump action designs?

The nozzle below suggested by TylerK is far and away the best nozzle I have. https://i.imgur.com/UQ0XO45.jpg I purchased mine HERE . The product page shows an image of the 2-inch sweeper nozzle, but this is indeed a 6" nozzle. I know of no other non-cast, non-stepped 6" sweeper nozzles on the marke...

Re: A New Twist on CTF - Introducing CTB

Well, that's it, I'm in. There are plenty of "beer runs," and other games so I don't see why this wouldn't work. Also reminds me of the event that I had theorized called a "smashed soakfest."
