*07/26/08 Chitown Gathering* IL,WI,MN,IA,MO,KY,IN,MI,

46 posts in this topic

IMHO, it is time for a Chicagoland-area gathering. Based on responses to the poll/questions I asked recently, this is an informal gathering. Attendees are welcome to bring their car to show, show up to visit, or both! We may attend a car cruise Saturday night.

DATE

= Saturday, July 26, 2008

TIME

= Start ... ~noon

= end ... dusk, when Forest Preserve closes [OR] later, if we attend a cruise night

...Shelter is reserved from noon until dusk, but please feel welcome to stop by for even just a short while to visit, if you want.

LOCATION

= west of Elgin IL

= Burnidge-Paul Wolff Forest Preserve at Big Timber and Coombs Rds:

west of Randall Rd, IL RT 31, IL RT 25 ... south of I-90, IL RT 72 ... north of I-88, IL RT 64, IL RT 20 ... east of I-39, IL RT 47

= Burnidge Shelter:

http://www.kaneforest.com/fp/map/BurnidgePaulWolff.pdf

...This has electrical outlets, a built-in grill, a fire pit, access to water, and is handicap accessible.

COST

= food (we have to eat anyway, right?) ... NO alcoholic beverages.

= gas (can't control this one, sorry)

= lodging (if needed)

= ABSOLUTELY, 100% _NO_ REGISTRATION, ENTRY OR PARTICIPANT FEES!!!

ALL ARE WELCOME!!!

This IS a RAIN or SHINE gathering. If it rains, we will have a shelter, or we can go to a nearby restaurant....

Plenty of hotels/camping in the area, if you are joining us from a distance. If many are coming from a distance, I will look into securing group rates for hotels and/or camping areas....

I've wanted to do this in the Chicago area because of the fun/awesome times I've had meeting people in informal gatherings during my road trips, including (but not limited to) these:

*FOR LOCATION REFERENCE*

The Forest Preserve is on Elgin's far west side, roughly a...

...10-15-minute drive, SW from the I-90/Randall Rd interchange.

...5-10-minute drive, N from IL RT 20

Interested people/attendees who have responded to this invitation/notice, thus far:

Me..hopefully. :)

For me, it depends on the little guy. (he'll only be a few months old then)

Both the wife and I agreed that we would like to spend a weekend out.....

A day in Chicago and a good part of the day there.

Sounds like a plan, Dave ... but, certainly, I understand about the baby on the way ;).

*UPDATE*

This gathering is in 4 MONTHS, but it's NEVER too early to plan to JOIN us or put this on your CALENDAR! Let me know even if you're just THINKING about coming....

I may supply the drinks (non-alcoholic, of course, since alcohol is not allowed in the Forest Preserve)....

SATURDAY NIGHT:

I'll look into car cruises in the area that we might attend, for those interested....

As of now, about 40 people plan to attend.... How about YOU? Will you JOIN us?

If I need to find and reserve a bigger space/forest preserve shelter (due to more coming), I am happy to do that.... So, please advise even if you are just THINKING about joining us....

To those coming:

Are you interested in going to a cruise night somewhere in the area that evening? If so, does distance from the afternoon location matter?

And, anyone plan to stay overnight, either Friday or Saturday?

I guess when her car goes gets work done before the kid, I should get it road trip ready....

Though I could bring the Balt if the little guy stays with the parents for the weekend.....

Either way, I gotta start working on those cars.....

*LOCATION*

*PLEASE NOTE*

SAME Forest Preserve, DIFFERENT SHELTER!

Since the number of potential people attending this event has increased to ~50, I have CHANGED the reservation from the 50-person-capacity Burnidge Shelter to the 75-person-capacity PAUL WOLFF SHELTER:

http://www.kaneforest.com/fp/map/BurnidgePaulWolff.pdf

The Paul Wolff Shelter is EASIER access ... direct from Big Timber Rd; Burnidge Shelter is nestled back in a way, from either Big Timber or Coombs Rds.

The Burnidge-Paul Wolff Forest Preserve at Big Timber and Coombs Rds is...

...NORTH of I-88, IL RT 64, IL RT 20

...SOUTH of I-90, IL RT 72

...EAST of I-39, IL RT 47

...WEST of Randall Rd, IL RT 31, IL RT 25

...ABOUT A 10-15-minute drive, SW from the I-90/Randall Rd interchange.

...ABOUT A 5-10-minute drive, N from IL RT 20

Elgin is about an hour (depending on traffic) NW of Chicago, along I-90 and IL RT 20.

*DATE*

Saturday, July 26, 2008

*TIME*

Starting ... ~noon

Ending ... ~dusk, when Forest Preserve closes [OR] later, if we attend a cruise night

Come for as short or as long a time as you want!!!

*COSTS*

Food (we have to eat anyway, right?) ... NO alcoholic beverages.

Gas (can't control this one, sorry)

Lodging (if needed)

ABSOLUTELY, 100% _NO_ REGISTRATION, ENTRY OR PARTICIPANT FEES!!!

*CRUISE NIGHT*

I've been considering some locations. Anyone have suggestions? I've thought about Beef Villa in S Elgin, but that parking lot would not be able to handle it even if a fourth of us went there. So, I'm open to suggestions, if people ARE interested in a cruise night.

*OVERNIGHT*

Anyone planning to stay overnight Friday or Saturday nights? If so, let me know ... I can check out local hotels/motels/camping areas....

*ATTENDEES*

ALL ARE WELCOME!!!

This IS a RAIN or SHINE gathering. If it rains, we will have a shelter, or we can go to a nearby restaurant....

I've listed people even if they are just THINKING about coming and/or have to see how their schedule is shaping up closer to the event.

Will YOU JOIN US???!!!

I think I am out of town that week. Myself and my son (who posts sometimes... actually almost as much as me maybe more) would love to come, I'll have to check with the boss (wife/mom). I am not sure, I sorta doubt it but if I can I will. I know we would have a great time.

gm4life ... I have you on the list "just in case" you can join us. If not, no worries. But, sure hope you are able to come!

And, I agree, dave...hope to have a few more yet this year ;).

FOOD:

I will double check, but I believe the pavilion features a BBQ for grilling. So, please bring whatever you wish to share and pass, etc.

UPDATED ATTENDANCE LIST:

Will YOU join us? Please remember to advise how many will be coming with you!

And, of course, bring chairs, etc., if you wish!

****UPDATE****

*****NEW LOCATION POSSIBILITY / INPUT NEEDED*****

We have reached CAPACITY for the Paul Wolff Shelter we currently have reserved.

THUS ... I drove around the area a bit and found a potential new location:

STEAK'n'SHAKE

290 S RANDALL RD

ELGIN IL 60123

http://www.mapquest.com/maps/290+S+Randall...Elgin+IL+60123/

This is...

...NORTH of I-88, IL RT 64

...SOUTH of IL RT 20 (by about a block or so), I-90, IL RT 72

...EAST of I-39, IL RT 47

...WEST of IL RT 31, IL RT 25

...~20-minute drive, S from the I-90/Randall Rd interchange.

I spoke with the Steak'n'Shake general manager on Saturday, May 17. They have a 95-person capacity, and while they do not take reservations, the manager assured me they would be able to accomodate the entire group, if everyone wants to eat there. The manager suggested keeping the gathering time at noon, which would be before their usual Saturday "rush" arrives....

PLUSES FOR THIS LOCATION

* Overnight accomodation options remain the same!

* Steak'n'Shake sits in front of a shopping center that is CURRENTLY mostly UNOCCUPIED, which means, we have plenty of parking.

* If you do not like Steak'n'Shake, a KFC is right next door; across Randall Rd, other restaurant options include McDonalds, Burger King, etc.

* A bit closer to car show possibilities ... and, given the location, the gathering could very well turn INTO a car cruise gathering.

DRAWBACKS FOR THIS LOCATION

* Farther away from overnight accomodations than the Preserve (but not as far away as other options are...).

* This will no longer be a cookout type gathering (but, we'll have room for everyone).

* This is in a higher-traffic area than the Preserve.

* While starting time for the gathering would remain at noon, the time at one location would be shorter, unless people come to check out our cars.... If we have to go elsewhere, plenty of cruise nights are in the area at which we could arrive a bit "early"....

SO ... WHAT DO YOU THINK about this NEW location? Please share your COMMENTS/SUGGESTIONS/THOUGHTS!
