Post subject:  Spring War - April 14-17, 2005

Spring War will be April 14-17 at Hidden Springs near Strasburg, Illinois.

Pre-Registration- Closed
Thursday- $18
Friday- $16
Saturday- $8
Note:All of the campsites in Illinois have raised their prices this year and the prices above reflect those changes.

Pre-registration is closed.

If you are under the age of 18 you must bring with you to the event a waiver that has been signed by your parent in front of a notary. Banks usually have a notary availible for a small fee. Waivers are availble HERE.

If you are 18 or over you need not bring a waiver with you as you will sign one at the gate.

Everyone will need to bring a picture ID.

More information will be posted when it becomes availible.

If you have any questions email Theros or myself or simply post them here.


Moderators, please make this post a Sticky. Thanks.

What if you dont have a picture ID?
I dont have a license, or state ID, only student ID.

Go and get one ;) You have plenty of time.

You will need one. State ID's cost about $5-10 and everyone should have some form of ID. All you have to do is call the DMV and find out what their criteria are.

How old are you?

I don't intend to sound mean, but I have to ask.

What's so hard about getting a State Issued ID ? If you've gone thru the trouble of getting a Fire Arm Owners ID, you should also be capable of getting your butt to the DMV ;)

Heh, the last 2 lines rhymed, woops.

State-issue ID's are incredibly easy to get. Show up at the DMV with the materials they request (you can look at this online, usually something proving your address, and social security card) you fill out the form, you get your picture taken, TADA!

Everyone should have one.

Everyone will have a state issued ID card of some varieity.

No exceptions, no excuses...

On a side note, which is totally related to the event. I just wanted to say that I went to SW last year, and I had a fabulous time! I believe it is being held at the same location. It was a great place.
My unit is hosts Beltaine almost every year so I will be there. But I wouldn't miss SW for anything!

Author:  Sorcia [ Wed Feb 02, 2005 10:55 pm ]
Post subject: 

Yeah...what Theros said. No reason you shouldn't have a state issued ID.

Hidden Springs is where the event will be held. Click the link posted in my original post to this thread.

Thanks for the plug, Izareth. You get a special Sorcia treat at SW! :D

I just wanna point out that the front page lists the location for Spring War as "Hidden Spring in Strasburg, UT". I nearly vomited.

Is there a theme or some fighting schedule worked out yet?

Author:  Sorcia [ Fri Feb 04, 2005 9:33 am ]
Post subject: 

Valie, thanks for catching that. W!nfang, would you change that?

VHil, Kyrian is still working on the details. We will post all that when the kinks have mostly been worked out.

Post subject: 

Dang, I saw on the site where it said UT instead of Illinois and was about to inform you all but it looks like someone beat me too it.

I haven't seen anyone mention details of the campsite yet. Does it have showers, running water, electricity? Anything of the sort? And what if too many people show up and there arn't enough campsites? Also, do you have to bring your own fire wood for camp fires or are people allowed to go drag fallen trees and tree branches out of the woods?

Author:  Sorcia [ Mon Feb 07, 2005 1:49 pm ]
Post subject: 


Running Water---NO---There is a well so water is availible but there are no modern facilities. Take a shower before you get there and bring wet naps. :)


Wood---POSSIBLY PROVIDED---Dead fall is always an option should we have trouble getting enough wood.

Space---PLENTY---If we run into a problem in the main site we have other space availible near the fighting field. Note: Wolfpack will be availible all day Thursday and Friday to help find a suitable spot for your group to camp. Since the site is "intimate" we are not allowing people to take up huge spots like groups such as Black Company did last year.

There are more details that will be made availible in the Spring War Camp Guide that will be availible online in a few weeks. Stay tuned.

Remember that Spring War is only a couple of months away so send in your pre-reg now.

There is a station in Effingham, IL and if you were going there we could possibly find someone to come get you.

Let me know here what your plans are before you get tickets and we will see what we can do.

Elwrath, I'll be in Champaign and *may* be able to come get you down in Effingham. When do you think you'll be coming in? When do you plan on headin gout to camp? If I can gank a car and directions, and possibly a boyfriend to clean out said car, we'll be in business.

Sounds might be shrat and me, I haven't convinced him yet though. I probably be there sometime on the 14th...haven't bought the greyhound ticket yet. I'll let you know soon. Thanks,

Everyone. If you want to leave saturday, you can, but why?

I was required at 16 to have a state ID to be employed.

All that is required was an Original Copy of my birth certificate, and my social security card.

If you are still a minor you have to have your parent/guardian with you to sign the documentation as well.

Your totally welcome to camp with Wolfpack of Hellhammer. You know you always have a home here.

I have all sorts of weapons you can borrow. I have extra garb as well if you need it.

The rules haven't changed much in the last couple of years. We can give you a quick refresher when you arrive.


Springwars will be held at Hidden Springs State Forest. It is located near Strasburg Illinois.

Directions from Chicago area...

Take I 57 south to Matoon, about 45 minutes south of Champaign. Get off the highway and take a right onto Rt. 16. Follow Rt. 16 out of town and follow it until you get to Rt. 32 in Windsor. Take a left onto Rt. 32 and follow it for about 2-3 miles. The road to the campsite is RR 1300 I think. You go right on the gravel road and follow it down to the site. IF you have any problems, just give me a ring and I will be able to talk you in.

I hope you can make it man. It has been way too long since you dragged your carcass out to fight.

hey what time does troll close friday night?

Author:  Sorcia [ Tue Mar 01, 2005 12:38 am ]
Post subject: 

Troll will close at about 11 each night.

So you know...there is a gate that will be locked no later than midnight and will open the next morning around 9 am. If you show up after 12 you will need to park outside the gate and walk into the campsite. If you can find me or Theros when you get there we can let you in and take note of the fact that you're there. You can deal with Troll in the morning. If you need to leave earlier than 9 am make arrangements with me only.

NOTE: We will only open the gate for emergencies at night. If it is an emergency you will find Wolfpack camped near Troll. Just yell and one of us will help you. We will also run security at night they will be availible to help you until the parties die down.

Maybe you guys could get bus tickets to Cheyenne, and I could take you the rest of the way from there ? ( Cheyenne is closer to me than Denver, but get whatever is cheaper )

Author:  Elwrath [ Wed Mar 16, 2005 4:52 pm ]
Post subject: 

its a possibility...I just need to get back by the morning of the 18th...this is probably unrealistic, which is why it's unlikely I'll make it :(

I really like this idea.
It will be cheap and Elwrath should be able to get back sooner.
