About the 2010 Word War

From its founding in 2005 through 2009, the Naperville region has won every inter-regional word war: Toronto (2005), Montreal (2006), Ottawa (2007), France (2008), and Birmingham-West Midlands (UK) and Belgium/Holland (2009). Alas, that string of victories came to an end in 2010 when Canada::Alberta::Calgary defeated Naperville in a squeaker: 239 words per wrimo.

This page is set up to commemorate the event's outcome and pay off Naperville's bet.


A Message from NewMexicoKid, ML for Illinois::Naperville

To the Calgary-o-taurs: of all our years of inter-regional word wars, we had never experienced defeat until we fought you. Your region is tough (oh, why didn't I remember the warning that Edmonton gave about you...?) and even though we came close (239 words per wrimo!), we couldn't overcome the large number of 100K+ writers in your region and overall persistence of your writers. So Congratulations to you for this year. I hope you enjoy our songs.

This is Naperville's regional song

Bart had this great idea to see what the Calgary song would be like if it were sung as a sad song.
