Hello,

Thanks for the add

Coming from Southern California Garrison for a visit to Chicago.

Cheers

This might be a stretch, but it's just been posted: We have a D.A.R.E. graduation in Sandwich, IL (70 miles from McCormick Place). Thursday April 11 from 5 pm arrival through about 8:30 pm. It's one we've done before, we escort the graduating class in, and pose for photos after.

CasiusOntius will be EC, it looks like.

Thanks for the update.

Transportation will be difficult. Im limited to public transportation, unfortunately.

Our city-limits opportunities are a little rare. I have to be up at 5 am the next day, otherwise I'd consider this one and offer a ride, but work dictates otherwise.

If you're looking for a break from SWCC on Saturday April 13 and want something a little smaller/typical, Wrigley Field is hosting a Star Wars-themed giveaway at the Chicago Cubs game, and it's going to be an MWG trooping.

Excellent. Thanks. Got tickets for that.

I’m sure a high profile event like that the sign ups fill up fast.
