Backyard/Private airsoft events
« on: August 31, 2009, 05:54:40 PM »
Are in no way shape or form allowed to be posted publicly on these boards.

Only games held at properly ZONED locations are allowed to be publicly posted.  Which for example, would be a Paintball field

Reason?  If someone were to be hurt at an "Illegal" event - i.e. backyard airsoft or ANY location not zoned for airsoft or paintball - not only would the event organizer and the land owner be liable, the forum to which the public information for the illegal event would ALSO be liable.

We cannot endanger the forums or the forum owner by allowing said illegal events to be posted publicly ANYWHERE on these forums.

Persons who have land available that is not zoned for use, may use the PM system to privately invite players to their events.

Furthermore, airsoft is Illegal within Cook County. 

Being caught in cook county playing airsoft more then likely carries a class a mistermeaner charge of "Unlawful use of a weapon."

until the property is zoned by the township/city/county and you have a business licence to run it, yes

count below a felony

thank you everyone for your maturity in replying to this topic

if i come off a being a bit "cross" it's only in the good intentions for the forums and the community as a whole

no one wants to hear stories of backyard games broken up by the police, court dates, or confiscated weapons

MAG had a CQC location at the beginning of this year, we had to pull the plug on it as it was based in cook county, and illegal

Breech did you get a place for whatever you were talking about? My heart almost stopped when you mentioned that.

Hmm... I live in Cook County... Barrington to be exact. I live just south of the border between Cook County and Lake County right by the Barrington High School. I emailed the police department in Barrington and was told that it was illegal to brandish a "projectile discharging" device within the town limits. However, I do not live inside downtown Barrington so I was told that it might be ok... I was told to check though. I don't know what this may mean according to this discussion...
