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.
