Shameless C&P from my NH thread, since you guys should weigh in too.
Little background, I run HvZ wars on my college campus, with ~200 players, for charity. Haul in a few grand every year for Children's Miracle network, et cetera.

A local five-star RV resort got wind. They want me to put on a 3-5 day HvZ on 195 acres... for up to 2000 people. Has anyone ever done a BIG event like this? It's primarily stock class, as these are retired folks, doctors, lawyers, engineers, and their kids/grand kids. Demographic ranges from 0-95. I was thinking a small war for an hour or two for 0-12, then the full blown one for 13-95, but honestly it's a bit overwhelming.

Any tips on managing big groups? Inspecting THAT MANY blasters for safety? Enforcing rules? The resort has a few hundred employees, and will be running the event, but I'll be directing efforts.

Where is this located?  I'd like to come help if it's not more than a few hours away (I live in Minneapolis MN).  If I remember correctly from shipping you the centurion, you live in SD?

This event sounds like it could be a TON of fun if you pull it off right.  Sounds like a lot of planning for missions and logistics is needed.
