Nerf battles returning to Hoffer Park

Posted

The Nerf battles are returning to Middletown.

Starting May 25, a Nerf battle for all comers held by the Dauphin County Nerf Club will take place from 1 to 5 p.m. in Hoffer Park along Mill Street.

Nerf is the brand name for many kinds of equipment that are used in games where people shoot each other with small foam projectiles.

The Nerf battles are to be held from 1 to 5 p.m. every last Saturday of the month from May through October. The rain date for each battle is the Sunday following the last Saturday of the month.

The Nerf battles and the Dauphin County Nerf Club were launched in 2018 by Strummer Woodworth, a 10-year old Middletown resident who lives on Hoffer Street and who is a 5th grade student at Reid Elementary School.

Woodworth petitioned borough council last year for permission to hold the Nerf battles at the Hoffer Park location. He appeared before council again this year seeking permission to hold the battles at the same location in 2019. Council granted his request on April 2.

Each Nerf battle will have adult supervision, and any litter will be cleaned up at the end of each battle.
