Hey guys, if you happen to be in Southern California, feel free to come to the Camarillo, Mission Oaks Park day long game. If you know anything about Southern California Humans vs. Zombies games, you’ll know that there’s not a lot of colleges or schools that have them over here. That’s why I’m pushing hard for this game by inviting people I know as well as blogging about it.

Camarillo is about an hour drive from Los Angeles. The drive is well worth it though. Some unique things about this game is that the mod team changes every year. Each mod brings a different outlook on game missions and objectives, which makes for a truly unique experience each game. Game time is usually from 10 am to 4 pm with a lunch break around noon.

There is no starve out period, and stun timers are shorter to make up for the day long game.

The park has two decent sized fields on it, but the major terrain perk is that theres a two or three mile long winding creek that is great for missions and surprise attacks.

Only 1 safe zone.

An additional, smaller park two blocks away that is also sometimes used for missions.

Camarillo Humans vs. Zombies now has dates for Summer 2013! I’m not the head organizer this time like in the Winter 2012 games, but I will be moderating and helping organize though. These past games had 81 people people attend first day, and then 87 people the second, which makes the second day the biggest Camarillo HvZ event in it’s history! If your visiting and in the LA County area, why not come over to play some HvZ? If your thinking about going, we would love to have you!

Feel free to leave any questions here or on the facebook event page.

Campaign to Camarillo Summer 2013: Summer 2013 Camarillo, CA Game Dates Decided!

I’m the dude with the panda accessories!

If you’ve been following my blog since about 2011, you should know that Camarillo Humans vs. Zombies is the biggest, open, Nerf related even in Southern California. Every Summer and Winter, a group of volunteers organize and host day long Humans vs. Zombies games in Mission. I helped organize the Winter 2012 HvZ games, and I’m helping organize these Summer 2013 games. That’s partly why I haven’t been uploading as much videos or posting on here as much.

The Summer 2013 game dates have been decided!

The first game is on July 13th, A Saturday, at 9 AM.
The second game is on July 21, a Sunday, at 9 AM.

Search “Mission Verde Park, Camarillo, CA” on Google Maps to get the location and directions to the event.

Check out the Facebook event page here. You can discuss the event there, and please RSVP if you plan on going. Below, I’ve also linked music videos to two previous events that I’ve been to.

Basic Nerf interview with MVP of the Camarillo 2012 Summer HvZ game, Ferris McIntyre

While shooting a video with Click Click Bamf on the Hail-Fire, this small girl asks to use the Hail-Fire. And thats how I met Ferris, a pretty interesting 16 year old who took charge of the leadership roles amongst my group and eventually most of the human force. Ferris the first and only girl, as well as the youngest person in Camarillo game history to win the MVP award. I decided to interview her and try and get to know her more.

Basic Nerf: Why don’t you tell the readers a little bit about yourself?

Ferris: Ok well, my name is Ferris McIntyre and I am 16 years old. I go to Rio Mesa High School with my twin sister Natalie. I am pretty average girl with hobbies and am someone who likes to just have fun. In my experience HVZ is a great way to do that.

I’m sure you get a lot of “Ferris Bueller” nicknames? I know that was my first nickname for you haha. Ever see the movie?

Hahaha yes I have many times. And I plan on doing my own version of it for my senior year. Including the car.

Haha oh gosh, be sure to bring Phil and Natalie along for the ride.

Hahaha I will do.

So how does it feel to be the first, and so far only, girl to win the Camarillo HvZ MVP fan award? As far as I know, your the only girl to have won it.

It feels amazing. I have always looked up to the MVP in the game and now that it is me I am very excited to go to more games and get even better at it. To help teach myself and anyone else who would like some help in the game. Being the first girl was just the cherry on top.

After I attended Day 3 of the Summer 2011 game, I was instantly hooked on HvZ. If you followed my preparation towards the game then I’m sure you’ve liked the content I posted so far. I’ve had the a great opportunity interview the game organizers for the Camarillo Summer 2012 HvZ game, David and Christopher.

Tell us a little bit about who your are.
David – My name is David. I have also lived in Camarillo my entire life. Chris has been one of my closest friends for as long as I could remember. I think that’s one of the things that makes us such a good team. I just got my Associates in Business and am currently working for a Bachelors at CSUCI. I’m a huge nerd and proud of it!
Christopher – My name is Christopher, I’ve lived In Camarillo my entire life and with the exception of five of those years I have been best friends with my Co-leader David Casas. I am a history major with an emphasis in Religion at CSUCI and I hope to get my Teaching credentials within the next two years. I love singing and playing video games.

Can you tell us a bit on how Camarillo HvZ was started?
David
– Our friends Mike and John started it in 2008. It was a small but crazy game that laid down the foundation to further games. We didn’t really have boundaries, and me and Chris were one of the last survivors 7 hours into the game. Ever since then, we have had someone from our group of friends host the game while the rest of the group would help mod. We started doing it annually, then went to biannually when people demanded more.
Christopher – HvZ was originally started in Camarillo by one of our good Friends Mike Groom and John Halter. That was back in the winter of 08 I believe and I am proud to say that David and I were able to survive right up until the end of the day….when the five remaining humans got stuck in a bathroom. I don’t think anyone realized back then just how big of an event this would become.

Mission Oaks, Camarillo Humans vs. Zombies Summer 2010 Photos

Geebs, according the wikia this is the busiest event to date, with 83 people coming to the game. Kyle Lynn has uploaded a good amount of photos to Facebook, and it’s very interesting to see the weaponry people were using two years ago as well as check out what the game was like two years ago. So go check out the full album if you want to see a lot of great action shots. I’ve picked a few favorites of my own and posted them.

Mission Oaks, Camarillo Humans vs. Zombies Basic Nerf Recap (Summer 2011)

Remember how I was mentioned this HvZ event in Southern California? I went to it, had a bunch of fun, but never recapped it much. I took Vlogs from my phone throughout the day during breaks, and posted them, but never really posted info on it. My friend’s friend who went with us took photos toward the end of the game, and I have a nice little story go along with most of them. With these things in mind, hit the jump for my (long) recap on this great event. Be prepared for a lot of reading, photos, and videos.
