Do you have little ones who love Nerf, but aren't interested in all the rules and seriousness? We will be hosting a Nerf Extravaganza at the the Mint Hill Park on Wilgrove on March 28th from 1-3pm. Bring guns and at least 10 darts. We will meet by the playground at 1 pm and decide where to head from there. There will be a battle at the same time for older or more serious kids at the same location, we will just stay split up. Can't wait to see everyone!

CONCURRENT
EVENT#2 A GRAND NERF BATTLE FOR BIG'INS

WHEN: Wednesday, April 26, 1pm-3pm

WHERE: Wilgrove Park
7750 Jim Harper Ln, Mint Hill, North Carolina 28227
http://www.minthill.com/parks_recreation.php?Parks-Recreation-Park-on-Wilgrove-9

WHO: Older, more serious Nerf Battlers. There will be a bunch of teens! (See above the event for the littles)

WHAT: Each participant could maybe also donate 10-20 darts to the NERF Battle (not required, but would be appreciated). That way "lost darts" are not so distressful. Mark your darts for identification purposes and ease of recovery. :).

NERF darts welcome. There are some NERF bows and arrows too. 


***Swords and "rival rounds" or balls are allowed during the LAST BATTLE for bigger kids, only.

Recommended: Eye protection for safety, not mandatory, but sunglasses or pool goggles will do.

RED and/or BLUE T-SHIRT – For team identification purposes.

FAQ: My son was curious how they will handle bullets?

Pat Robinson: It is chaos. Simply chaos. LOL 

We've done this multiple times with large groups. If the kids mark their darts in some manner: red dot on one end or the other; double dots, slash/dot, double slash, or squiggly nail polish, etc. the darts will me more identifiable at the end.

During the battle, the darts are a free-for-all to pick up, reuse, and shoot "spent darts". After one team's "FLAG" is captured, everyone reloads with miscellaneous darts. Battle resumes. 

Repeat. 

At the end of the Battle Extravaganza, everyone unloads all darts and we collect them all into a big pile to sort to their original owner. 

Any items that are left are gathered and brought to the next battle.

(Easiest is to assume one will bring 10 darts and consider them a "donation" to the game. But, generally, everyone is able to identify "their" darts to take home, at the end!)
