Where: Wheaton, IL (Western suburbs of Chicago)

When: Saturday, December 16th - 10-4
Basic Rules and Reminders for the War
  • Eye protection will be required. If you don't have any, too bad, you won't be nerfing with us. I will have a few spare pairs laying around but don't plan on me supplying all the glasses.
  • Homemades will be allowed on a case by case basis. I will determine if the gun will be allowed, along with the opinions of others.
  • It is going to be December. Please bring lots, and lots of warm clothes. Bring extra pairs of clothes in case it is wet outside from snow or rain. Bring boots also. We will be nerfing on grass which may be very muddy.
  • Bring lots of guns and lots of darts. You will lose a lot of darts so bring plenty. I will provide necessary tools for fixing a blaster if it gets damaged during battle.
  • Bring food for yourself. I will have a grill on site and we will be able to cook up some burgers, hot dogs, etc. We will probably eat lunch and dinner while we are there. It is going to be an all day affair. I suggest bringing a cooler of some sort with drinks also.
  • Bring your parents if they don't like the idea of you going to meet a bunch of strangers. Most likely my parents will be there as well.
  • No pointed of unsafe darts. This is pretty self explainatory.
  • "Walkie-talkies will be allowed during battle. I recommend bringing these for team battles.
  • Please don't shoot any of the surrounding houses or innocent pedestrians. I wouldn't like to have a confrontation with the cops.
  • Any guns painted black or dark colors will be required to have bright colored tap across the barrel. FH will be supplying the tape on a first come, first serve basis. If you don't do this, you won't be using that certain gun.
Directions

SITE CHANGE: Please read.

I decided to change the site due to legality issues with the Park District. We will be hosting the war at a Forest Preserve instead. This way there will be no houses and we should be better off here. This also looks like a great place to Nerf. The address is 26W500 Butterfield Road. It's only about 2 or 3 miles from the original site. It's very easy to spot and we will be congregating in parking lot as you drive in. Here is a general map of the area on Mapquest. If you need specific directions, let me know. The forest preserve is called Herrick Lake.

Here are pictures of the site I took a couple days ago.

Who's coming?

Note: Please mark if you are coming potentially or officially. If you say you are coming officially, you better fucking come. Like FH said, I don't want 20 people say they are coming and back out the day before.

Official:

-Myself and about 2 others from my clan
-JurassicPark
-deathwolf and maybe 2 or 3 extra
-hokiefan0705
-Munson20
-Petrie
-Caffeine and one other

I will keep this post updated as often as I can. If anyone has suggestions, please let me know.

Illinois, okay. So much for Michigan... Oh well, my parents would have refused somewhere along the line. Have fun! I like the name, Christmas clash.

Here is the park by my house. It is the probable site for an IL war. It isn't the best location but there is hardly anyone ever there. The land is owned by the park district and the school.

It is mostly flat terrian which kinda sucks. The school in the upper right corner would be pretty good. There is also a retention pond and a whole buch of other stuff. I'll get some real pictures tommorow.

Is Ryan's image not showing up for anyone else?

EDIT: nevermind its working now.

Also are the votes being tallied according to the # of people who could go, or the number of nerf haven-ers who could go?

Also there was this guy awhile back that started a thread called "Where do you nerf?" or something and someone (might have been him) put these pictures up of this huge wooden play structure. He was from Illinois and alot of people said they could prob. go.
I will look the link up.


Mr. Elf it is by Haven and HQers plus number attending plus if it can be hosted there. Lets get a war going soon. Hope it snows.

Please just call me Elf because mr. elf sounds weird.

Anywho, if it is by numbers: I am in a clan with 8 official members but there are also 12+ other unofficial members. Now I'm not certain of how many of them could make it to a war if we had one. Yes soon would be good, my trigger finger itches. If you wanted alot of people to be able to come we should try doing it during Christmas break. Assuming that I am hosting: if we have out of staters coming we could all do a big sleep over in the barn/second house thing and then they could head home.
My peeps prob wouldn't be able to make it to anything held on a random weekend (we all take mainly level X, AP, or "go to a college for" classes) Snow would make things interesting. It has already snowed afew times where I live, nothing serious but it was still snow. but...

Hope for no slush cuz' slush sucks! and slush usually = mud.


Dear (Mr.) Elf I would hope to hold it in Illionis, But whearever works, we should get state teams do a match for the next years home feild advantage, lets call it the Christmas Clash.

That would be reallly cool! and the best part about having it during christmas break is that even if someone/once my clan goes to college they most likely still come home for the holidays. This makes me really happy because lately I have been looking at potential colleges (most of my top choices are out of state...like in Vermont) and I keep getting these sad thoughts about how I wont ever get to nerf except for in the summer :angry: ... but now thats all gone!

I really want to give you a hug right now.

... assuming of course that this would be an annual thing...


First of all PLEASE DON'T HUG ME MR. ELF.
Yes it will be annual.

Did you read my post, we decide where to hold it this year. Then we get teams from all states and what state wins determines where the Christmas Clash is the next year. Yes Mr. Elf the winner choses the location of the Christmas Clash.

Wow.... that took me a really long time to get! :P Your the guy who cursed on my clans site.

If anything you should be addressing me by Mr. Gun then. But whatever.

Yea I understood that stuff. What led you to the conclusion that I didn't. The only thing that I didn't get was that it open to all states. I for some reason or another thought that this was just bettween Illinois and Minnesota. I guess I was just being narrow minded. <_<

Yea and we could like an Ls or some other big gun and spray paint it gold and the winner gets to take that home and the next year they pass it on to the next team. Like the stanly cup.


HELL YEAH! (Looks in Ryans general direction for the LS)

Another vote for MN.

However, I am willing to drive to Illinois -- if it's a two-day war. Job=can pay for gas. IL ain't that far away, either... Elf, you up for it?

Such a long drive means dates SOON: Planning. Parents to convince. Give it a week for voting but I think the most important thing to do with planning wars is to have everything in concrete ASAP.

- - -


Also note I can hold 4 people and myself; I know the location isn't set yet but if anyone in MN wants to carpool and my whole clan won't show, I may be able to pick up one or two stragglers.

Yea, Chicago is good. Right amidst the large mass of MNers and MIers we have, and of course all those in IL anyways.

Elf, that means... we have to get Luke to come, or... I hope one of your parents nerfs. I suppose maybe my dad would do it...
