Chicagoland MG Club: Driveline May 2012
Upcoming Events

Spring Chicken Run
Ivanhoe, IL

Sunday, May 20, 2012

I want to thank Bill Reese for hosting this in past years, so to keep the event going, Jana and I volunteered to host it at our house this year.

The drive starts from the Deer Park Town Center shopping mall at 9:30am. The mall is located at the north west corner of Hwy 12 (Rand Road) and Deer Park Blvd. This is just north and west of Lake Cook Road and Hwy 53. in Lake County. There is a Starbucks and a Panara Bread located close together in a section of the mall. It is where we will congregate and get the driving instructions for the drive to our house. We are located in Ivanhoe, which has a Mundelein post office address, and I have alerted the gatehouse to let the MG's pass in to our house. We are serving Chicken and everything else that comes with a hearty lunch. We will have pop, water, wine, and a few beers, all for the price of $7 per person just to help defray expenses. It would be good for some people to bring lawn chairs so everyone has a place to sit in the yard out-doors.

The planned driving route is just over 60 miles, takes about 2 hours, and there are some questions to be answered along the route, if you would like to try and win a prize! For those who can't make the drive, you are welcome to just show up at our house at around 11:30 and join in for the food and fellowship. Our address is: 21967 Vernon Ridge Drive, Ivanhoe, Illinois 60060. The home phone is 847-566-5075, cell number is 847-471-5062.

I would like to hear from you if you are planning to attend so that we can plan the food appropriately. We had 12 people sign up at the April meeting so the list has started. We are looking forward to seeing you here on the 20th of April!
