Nerf events

Several Nerf-based events were held, including:

  • High-Noon Quick-draw Competition: A ladder match with stock Nerf Maverick revolvers and protection provided by the convention. Costumes, fancy shooting, or acting (including death acting) may be awarded additional style points.
  • Free-for-all City Shootout: Participants must bring their own weapons (within limits), ammunition and eye-protection for an all-out competition in a stand-up city.
  • Team Death-match: 4v4 team action in a stand-up city, with each team-member using their own equipment. Advanced registration is required.

Charity

The charity in 2010 was the Front Range Equine Rescue. The $240 proceeds from the convention's charity auction were matched by the convention to make $480 and then donated to them.[3]
