Default Chicago Poker Run...lookin' good!

With some BLAZING hot temps and light southerly winds this week...Lake Michigan should be F-L-A-T for Saturday! You Okies will go home a little less bruised this year!

Default Thursday Nighters- Party in the City

Someone had asked earlier on places to go in the city for those that arrive early. Kool-Aid has checked and has set up some ideas for those interested. PM me or Kool-Aid for details. Hammer

So will most of the boats be docked at East Chicago by Saturday morning?

I live in Naperville and am thinking of showing up at the marina in the morning to look at all the boats, boating out of Portage I usually only see Sea Rays and other family boats...
