Helped the Tacticool Tag and Gaming Society of Chicagoland (TTAGS) run some capture the flag minigames at the Justplay! Sports and Rec Festival in Carol Stream, IL! We had giveaways, awards, and a great number of people, hopefully getting them interested in the hobby and showing a new way to play. Also, that you don’t have to be 8 years or under to enjoy toy blasters. Nerf and other foam shooters were represented of course, but we also put our Vapor Atlas 250s and the Vapor Delta 500 to good use.
Thanks to all who showed up! And with any luck, we’ll be in Carol Stream doing meetups on a more regular basis 🙂
Big thank you to the Carol Stream Park District for setting us up, and letting us use your fair grounds! Hope to be back next year, bigger and better!
