Hey guys! I'm looking to host a war in the Chiraq area within the next month or so. I know you guys are out there, I just don't know why you aren't doing anything, I'm willing to host a war if you guys can feed me the parks you frequent, as I just don't have the time to scout any myself. I work in the Bolingbrook area, so I'm willing to travel as far south of the city as that.

The trouble is, there aren't any parks that we frequent. We've had a spotty history with the cops, so we've been trying (failing) to get a privately owned location. That's why Ryan and I haven't hosted any wars around here this summer. Down in Bloomington and up in Green Bay we've had wars without trouble, but that's not exactly Chicago area. That said, if you find a nice, privately owned spot around here, Ryan and I will be there for sure with hella war gear. If you find a nice public park and want to just hope for the best, we'll still probably come, but won't take the trouble to bring more than blasters and darts.

When it was looking like we would have to move Apoc after getting kicked out of the park a few years ago, I looked into what would be required to nerf on private land without anyone actually owning any. Turns out LARPers have all this shit figured out already. They will usually rent out a scout camp for a weekend. Insurance is typically required, but for groups that aren't big enough to do that themselves, I've heard of groups forming BSA Venture Crews just for the insurance. It sounds crazy, but if it works for LARPers, it seems plausible. If nothing else, it's worth checking the schedule for one of these groups to see what sorts of parks they use. Admittedly, they need a lot less space and tend towards woods over open fields, but it's better than nothing.

Chicago wars would definitely attract a sizable group of Wisconsonites if you find a good location.
