Ravisloe is accessible from I 80, I 57, Tri state tollroad, or I 355 to I 
80 east. Ravisloe is on the west side of the Illinois Central Railroad 
tracks. A "very small" sign points to the entrance. Any googled map or GPS 
would be helpful if you are not familiar with the area. 

Rain date to be determined. Ravisloe will determine rainout. 

Remember  this is the first try in the Chicago area.  We will try to keep 
glitches to  a minimum.  Attendance will determine if we make this an annual  
event.  We will ask for your input on the future of the event.   "Most"*** 
important we will ask  for volunteers to chair future  events.  Be ready to 
volunteer or be appointed.  After the first one  there is a matrix of how to 
do it.  The first is the  hardest. 

Any  donation of prizes would be appreciated.  Notify Mike McErlean of 
prize,  bring the day of event.  If unable to attend send to Mike at above  

Anyone  coming and needing a motel room do not stay in Homewood or Harvey.  
Stay in  Tinley Park, 5-6 miles west of Ravisloe.  Exit Harlem Ave from I 
80 --  Holiday Inn, Comfort Inn, Sleep Inn,Wingate inn, Hampton Inn and 
several  others.  Do "not" stay at the LaQuinta Inn. 

This event is in addition to the outing annually held in Prairie du Chien. 
It  is not a replacement for the one in Prairie. Many of us enjoy going 
to Prairie once a year and appreciate the hard work of Mark Peterson and his 
staff  putting on this annual evet. 

Look forward to seeing you at Ravisloe.
