    We'll get some info posted this week.

    I'm getting all excited!! I am going home to my parents this weekend and testing out my new gun...my parents are gonna love me!! (Although they shouldn't complain cuz my b-day is next week and I'll tell them they have to be nice to me)

    Also, I might be able to fit 2 or 3 people in my car...depending on size and if my roommie does indeed come with. WARNING: I will have 1-3 cigarettes on the way, so if you can not handle the smoke, I apologize.

    It will be me and one other non-SW geek. We'll hitch a ride with someone if I don't bring the UAV. (Urban Assault Vehicle)

    Where exactly is Veteran's Park? Is it that little tiny piece of land on the corner of Higgins and Milwaukee?

    I wonder if I should try this for our outing, especially after the failed "lightsaber" battle.

    Right, thanks for the correction. =)

    Sadly, the original design for my camera's "blast shield" became cost-prohibitive, so I am going to try and "bubba-fy" something. Wish me luck, and hope it turns out better than the "paintball lightsabers".

    I think the only thing you can do to prevent the cam from getting hit is to have the reflexes of a mongoose(2% to dodge).
