I'm sure this will turn out to be really fun.
Just remember to keep it super organized and no problems! I know you can do that, though.

Name tags on people will get wet, so bring a clip board and make people sign their name as they set their bags down. Also, do not forget to have them add their name to their bag.

Depending on what I'm doing at that time, I will volunteer to take names and watch over the stuff. Or whatever else you guys need to help get this started and organized.
Because although I won't be in costume, I will be wearing not so water friendly attire.

Yep! I am striving to organize this to the best of my abilities! >////<

Well thank you for the offer of helping out! (:
I'm not sure how committed my friends are to helping...they seem more excited to play. Hah. So I feel a lot of responsibility resting on my shoulders!
Eeeek! So thanks for helping. Even just suggestions in the thread are insanely helpful.

We might be able to do bag watch/admin duties shifts, so if anyone wanted to play, someone could cover their slot. So if the person watching the bags wanted a go, I'd have no problem posting up for a breather. I'd hate for you to bust your ass organizing this just to watch everyone else go have fun.

despite being unable to get involved, i had an idea that MIGHT attract attention.

what if you made a little sign and very simple stand that said what you were doing? you know, the "Hydro Pump Palooza!" thing. the person guarding bags or what not would be near the sign, and if someone wants to join, they can be given an arm band. and maybe some people could bring extra little waterguns for folks who might not know about this, but see it and want to join, so the person giving the armband can also give them a little water gun.

just an idea. also, maybe have it on friday too so i can come watch. XD

GOOD IDEA. Since we're not at the convention center exactly (just nearby), we can have a sign.

I have no interest in getting wet! Organizing and taking names will be more fun to me.
Chasie, I'll send you an add on Facebook if that is okay. That way you can get a hold of me for the water gun fight.

Hmmmmm... I dunno. I personally prefer- No. No we're not discussing my personal preferences on a public forum.

There is talk of rain during AZ, so I don't know how that will affect our plans. Something tells me someone will be out there in the rain with a water gun regardless.

Sorry. I fell off the face of the earth for a few days in overhaul trying to finish costumes. -_-
I LOVEEEE the idea of a sign. I think I'll work on one despite the chance of it's demise during the rain!
And I did think it'd be nice to bring tiny extra guns. I'm going to do some shopping for this event in the next few days, and I plan on looking for some cheap guns for people who don't lurk these forums. ;D
Please add me to facebook! This event started as a project between friends...and now they've left me to drown in all the organizing! Need halp! hah.

Be sure to make a sign to go next to the bags that says, "Water-Free Zone."
Make sure no one's bags get wet. This is another reason someone will need to be watching over the stuff at all times.
I will be getting there in the early morning, we can talk this over and get set up for the event.

We will need a clip board for keeping names of everyone participating, name tags for all the bags, signs stating the event and a sign for a water-free zone.
On the main sign, be sure to include important rules and how long the event will last for. Such as-

*Use a towel.
*Be respectful.
and the sort.

Let's make this a Facebook Event so we can invite people, too! Be sure to include all the rules, location, and so on. Also the duration of the water gun fight.

Could throw a tarp or trashbag over the bags, as another layer of protection
