The thing is, all the past nerf wars involve everyone bringing their own darts and pooling, these darts will be redistributed back at the end of the game.
For the nerf tournament,
1) bring your own darts, and write down the number on the registration form when you register.
2) During play, darts may be taken from the central pool for the first match only. At the end of each point, players may only pick darts off the ground to reload.
3) End of each match, the teams should pick up as many darts as possible from the ground and add them back to the pool.
4) End of tournament, darts will be redistributed back to owners from the pool. Any loss will be allocated by percentage (Eg. 10% darts missing, you brought 10 darts, end of tournament you will get 9 back).
I hope this helps.
This event is a not for profit event, all donations collected (darts included) will be pooled and used for the good of the community.
I'm afraid we cannot keep tabs all the time on who steals darts. I pray and hope that everyone will uphold a high ethical standard and keep this event a resounding success.
