Hello,

So if anyone has payed attention to the thread talking about hosting a nerf war in Chicago area this is continued from there. What I am wondering if is anyone would be willing to come out to 60025 area for a war. People of all ages would be allowed and mention if anyone else would join you. We need a headcount to see if we have enough to host a war.

 

So far we have myself, and up to 30 others for a definite(realistically about 10-15)

 

Possible others(who have mentioned they may attend)

Daniel Beaver

Pacnick11

 

We haven't figured out the rules yet, however we would allow mostly everything so expect a more intense war, and we would allow all kinds of mods and maybe homemades if enough people have them. For playing area we have a very large field that is long enough to launch sizeable model rockets and have them end up in grass so you calculate how large a field would need to be to do that.

 

So anyone interested? If so just please comment below

Hey! I think his name is Daniel Beaver, he mentioned that maybe we should just try playing with just 4-6 players to start off. Would you consider it? I would do it if no one else decides to join our war, but I don't know if that would be worth it for people driving 3-4 hours. I think we need at least 10 players before we set a time and date. What do you think man?

Yup, fine with me, we should see if we can get anyone else, keep up the good work, we need more people because I would prefer if we have more people from here than my friends to keep it interesting, but yeah keep messaging people stuff and send messages to people near the area. 4-6 would be fine but I want to see if we can get more because I know what I'm doing, I may be young but I can be a leader and can easily handle a bunch of people, in fact it is I, a mid teenager that is hosting a local 40+ war for my neighbor with cancer so I think I can handle it.

Yeah, I don't understand it at all. My original forum has been active for over a month already. There's 9.4 Million people living in the Chicagoland area and we get only 4 players? Let me say that again: 9.4 Million. That is an insane number of people. There should be way, way more people responding to this forum. I shouldn't have to look into other NerfHaven forums or venture into the world of Facebook just to invite players living 3-4 hours away. What about the 2.7 million residents of Chicago? Where the hell are all the Chicagoans? This is the largest city in America for Christ's Sake!!!!

If you're having issues with outreach, you might have to branch out to Facebook (the Chicago Nerf Wars group is fairly active). They're hosting their Dawn of Foam war on April 2nd, that would probably be a good occasion for you to meet some other nerfers in your area and spread the word that you're willing to host wars.

Yeah you are right, it is crazy, I just don't understand how so few people are into this hobby it is great.

Ok, well thanks for advice, pacnick this is your que, see if you can go to this, I know im going to be away but that being said I want to see if one of us could go and we could advertise.

Yeah, I know about that Facebook Nerf group and I am a member too, but I can't make that "Dawn of Foam" war. I almost punched a Fuckin hole in my computer screen when I found out it's happening on April 2nd... my high school's Spring Break starts on March 30th and I'm going to be flying out of town that Friday to visit some Universities in the Big Apple. That's life, I suppose.

Nice man. Scratch 1 more player, Pineapplepies.
 
Andy, if you know anyone that like to Nerf PLEASE tell them about this Nerf war in Chicago.
We're having a really hellish time gathering players, this is the 2nd month and we only have like 4-5 people.
 
Thanks!

Heh heh seems like pacnick too has spring break, that's why I am leaving. Ok cool! So we have another, let us still try to advertise and see if we can get anywhere, paknick if you could try maybe saying a comment on the facebook page saying come to this war and get people to join that would be great. I think a good number of people we need at least is 6 people, then that on top of my friends which would add a fair amount of people. 
For the people who are joining, what sort of guns do you have, does anyone have some loaners or things others can use?

Anyways, ok, yeah actually I am interested in some of your stuff I would buy it there, in fact actually if you have $50 worth of blasters or the equivalent, I can just hand you a $50 visa gift card.

Edit:nevermind on whole double post thing, thank you ice nine

As Daniel beaver said, FB is the way to go. They had some wars in like November I think that I attended, but I saw them through FB. Once the weather warms up I think they do them once or twice a month. A few years back there was a steady group of about 20 people who nerfed in Oak Lawn, not sure what happened to most of them though... The community has seemed to dwindle since I left. I used to hold wars as did the MHA crew and there would be a regular 20 people at both. Advertise a bit more would be my suggestion. I dont know if there is other forums, but spread the word as much as you can.

Well, I know that I am advertising our Nerf War, not sure about others though. It would really help if I wasn't alone doing all this messaging. If you look through the forums, I've commented on just about every nerf group's forum within 4-5 hours of Chicago. Honestly, I've done as much as I can on here and on Facebook. If I do anymore messaging, I'm sure people will say that I am harassing them and I defiantly don't want that.

 

Keep in mind, it's been over 1 and 1/2 months since the initial posting. This war needs to happen before July, otherwise I won't be able to make it. :(

I know, this is getting annoying, and I'm sorry I can't help but I have basically promised to myself that I don't need, and will not be joining social networks. 

However,

TO ANYONE OUT THERE THIS IS YOUR TIME TO RESPOND, AND TO ANYONE WHO ALREADY WANTS TO GO PLEASE ADVERTISE,

 

Here is the info;

This will take place preferably on the weekend of April 20th,

We will have almost no bans on darts or blasters(subject to change)

It will be hosted on a LARGE field in area code 60025, glenview, chicago, illinois, so homemades allowed

Anyone will be allowed, all ages,

I already have many darts including glue domes,

We will have many loaners so if you have nothing you can come

And other than that we will have fun so please come out

If you guys plan something, I will attend but I can't be of much help setting it up. I barely have time to get on here and sell my stuff ahah, but like I said I would for sure show up.

Well... showing up is all that really matters, especially considering our circumstances with an incredibly low player count. As of right now, I honestly couldn't care less about what kind of blasters we're going to be using (mod or non-mod), the game-modes we decide to play, or the overall quality of the Nerf War. All I want is at least 15 or so players, a determined location, and a date/time for this nerf war. It's not that I'm being lazy or impatient, but considering the fact that I will probably be moving cross-country in about 3 & 1/2 months... there is a chance that I will have to throw in the towel and drop out of this thread if things don't speed up between now and summer. I really, really don't want this to happen so that's why I keep telling you guys to please help me out with the advertising, on here and on Facebook. We have 3 months to get it together. Time will fly, trust me.

Hmmmmm this isn't good, we are about 6 days away from 3 months until you leave, so here's the deal. I can get my friends in on this if everyone's fine on that, or we could have a small war with whoever we have. As for the others, please just advertise on Facebook, speaking of which Pacnick have you tried advertising to the group in Milwaukee? Look in the wars thread there is a lot of wars within an hour of us so I think I'm going to go advertise there.
