Not much need be said about this. The Nerf Arena at Quest in Merry Hill is operational! Looks like the attendees have had a bunch of fun, so here’s hoping they keep it going. All the best, Quest! This looks much bigger than the original NDTL inf For more info on the stats and specs of the arena, feel free to refer to my other post: or contact Quest at: email@example.com Maybe check them out on Facebook?
Nerf’s little docu-WWON (Wide World of Nerf) sports documentary from the NDTL this year! Keep your eyes out for Wisconsin’s own L. C. of the Chicagoland Dart Tag Society!
Who’s training for next year already?
Since the Nerf Dart Tag line started in 2003, it has gone through a LOT of changes. Here’s a gallery on how the blasters have changed/realigned over time.
If you registered to be a part of the NDTL (see right sidebar for a link) you should be getting your notifications already! Good luck players!
Ok, so there hasn’t been much said since the announcement of this year’s Dew Tour regarding Nerf Dart Tag. Last year, when the Summer Dew Tour dates were announced the Nerf facebook page coincided a similar announcement, since the past two years the Tour’s Festival Village was the staging ground for the Nerf Dart Tag League regional championships, culminating in the finals at the last stop of the Summer Dew Tour in October. The Nerf Twitter feed said they were keeping things fresh this year, as I was a little despondent over seeing Chicago not on the list of tour stops this go around.
As far as I can tell, there’s something going on with the ESPN Worldwide of Sports Complex in August, for the finals. Anyone who’s bought the new Nerf Dart Tag blasters like the Quick-16, Swarmfire, Speedload 6, or Sharp Shot chances are you saw the sticker on the box about entering a contest for a chance to win a spot at the Nerf Dart Tag World Championships.
So… what now? No idea. I’ve done some digging, and nothing definite turned up. More on the Nerf Dart Tag League as it develops, but everything feels very much in the air except August in Florida!
Looks like the Summer Dew Tour, that carries the Nerf Dart Tag League the last two years, has announced their tour dates for 2011. It was at the NDTL I managed to talk to some folks from Nerf, and it was ground zero for where I am today in my working relationship with them.
Anyway, fyi- here are the announced stops and dates this year. Of note, it looks like things are different this time around. For starters, Chicago is not on the list.
Here it is… your 2011 summer schedule!
July 21-24: Ocean City, MD
Aug 11-14: Portland, OR
Sept 8-11: Salt Lake City, UT
Oct 13-16: Las Vegas, NV
What does this mean? I am not entirely sure, but some of you guys who own
the new NDTL blasters might want to look at the ESPN sticker on the box. At this point, all I can do is hope that somehow I can still make it to the NDTL but it seems to me the format’s changing, for sure. All I’ve heard off the twitter feed is to stay tuned, so…. we’ll do just that.
In other news, IL I can confirm new Dart Tag gear sightings at Toys R Us! That’s including the Sharp Shot, Swarmfire, Quick 16, Quick 6, jerseys, and vision gear. Go get’em!
Different types of ammo fired from the Nerf Dart Tag Quick 16 – a representation of the different types of comparably sized store-bought ammo you’ll probably run into in your games!
Yes, I know the music is a bit loud; don’t worry you’re not missing anything 🙂
