Some general questions about everything
« on: July 07, 2010, 12:26:08 pm »
Hi, my name is Austin and im 14. I live in Texas and am a big time mil-sim airsoft player. I am interested in coming since Op:Bulldog was made +18 this year and Im not going to get another BIG Op. I have a few questions for the vets
 
- How many people usally attend Thunder?
- How "Mil-Simy" is Thunder
- Is it worth the drive from Texas

1. Attendance exceeded 400 last year.

2. YOu won't find some of the hard-line restrictions on gear that you'd get with the Lion CLaws series, nor will you find an emphasis on overcomplicated rules. Safety is a huge concern, then fun, then realism, with most other priorities taking a tertiary importance.

In other words, expect Thunder to feel a little less like Full SPectrum Warrior and a little more like Battlefield: Vietnam.

3. QUestion, first:
Can you afford a drive from Texas? We've had players from Ireland before and I don't think they were disappointed.

4. No. You'll want to bring your own or link up with someone who can provide for you.

Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.

As redtail said, food isnt included but the vendor is extremely inexpensive. You'd have no problem getting lunch for just a couple bucks.

It's probably a good idea to bring supplies for breakfast and dinner, as dinner will probably be too late for the vendor to provide. However, there's always pizza.

If your parents aren't going to show up, you need to get them to sign it and get it notarized. That way it is legally guaranteed not to be forged. Plenty of minors do this every year, so it should go over just fine.

Notary's can usually be found at your local bank.  Just go there, have your parents sign, have the notary sign, Done!

No, then you must quest for the legendary gauntlet of Grabthior and bring it to the mystical shamans of the savage land where it will be bonded to the sword of the damned which must be used to slay the demon king.  Only then will you be allowed to bring the waiver....


Get it signed, Get it notarized, show up.

you could also try a title agency or the local court house for a notary =)
