Anyone play in high school?
Basic gist of it:
People sign up in teams of two, whoever runs it assigns a team another team as their target. They are also someone elses target, however they do not know who that is. The team has to shoot both of their targets with squirt guns before a certain date (usually 4 days). If you're shot, you're out of the game. If you don't hit your target in the allotted time, you're out of the game. If you do get your target and don't get shot, you advance to the next round and everyone else that was shot or didn't get their target is eliminated. This lasts about 4 or 5 rounds until it's left to two teams, and whoever gets the other first are out. The catch is entry is $10 that all goes into a pool of the kids participating, close to 40 teams, and the winner gets it ALL.
Pretty stoked. Some more misc stuff::
Houses are off limits to enter without a family members consent (pretty common to see kids paying off brothers/sisters to let them in).
5 minute grace period to allow people to get to their cars after school. 5 minute grace period to get into school in the morning.
Stakeouts are common, where people will wait outside for people to leave their houses in the morning for hours just to get the kill.
My sister's school was last week and I dressed up as a Jehovah's Witness to get the kid to come to the door so they could jump out and shoot him. It was SO elaborate, I preached about God for a good 5 minutes.
So I just finished a Ghille suit kit I got as a gift years ago and got so close to finishing and never did. And my Dad has a thing called a "Spot" he uses when flying that sends a GPS signal every 10 minutes on your location in case anything happens in the air. Basically, we throw that in the targets car and get a streaming location of where they are. It plots it on a google map like thing that you can watch from online or get lat/long coords sent to your phone.
Basically, it's a huge deal. No one thinks anything is funny (and the Jehovah's witness thing was hilarious, I'll attempt to upload the video. The kids were PISSED) and it's all anyone does and thinks about for these next few weeks.
Anyone ever heard of/done this/have any creative ideas?
