This is a Picnic!! The CAOC club will be providing hotdogs, chips and
pop for all interested, starting around noon. The club will also provide a grill
and coals. You bring stuff for the grill for you and your drinks and then please
bring a salad, side or dessert to share. Kick
back to enjoy the company of your fellow Chicago O club members
after your race. You never
know who you might meet or what you might eat. Don't forget frisbees, bocce
balls, and cards. You might also want a bring a change of shoes and socks and
some dry clothes.
The #379 Pace bus leaves Midway Airport at 10:45 am. Get off at 87th street
and 88th ave. Walk west about 2 miles on 87th and through the forest preserve
to the start. 87th ends before Flavin Road, so you'll have to take trails to
the start location. This will be a good navigation exercise for you.
From the city, take I-55 (Stevenson Expressway) 13 miles southwest
of the loop. Exit at LaGrange Road (aka US 45, Exit 279A), and
go south 1.7 miles to Archer Ave. Take
Archer Avenue southwest (right) for 1.6 miles and turn south
(left) on Flavin Rd. (This is across the street from Willow Springs
Rd.) Go up the hill and take a left into the first forest preserve
signs to direct you to the registration area.
