|Regalia and the Holidays |
It is not too early to start leaving hints for Christmas presents. Yes, I know that some of you want other "toys," but it is also appropriate to be clothes stylish. That is one of the nice things about having on-line Regalia, the clothes choices are in style and are of a very good quality. The selection also includes women's clothing. There is even a selection of youth and infant clothes. Pass this on to your spouse, children and even grandchildren. All you have to do is go to our Chicagoland MG web site and click on the "On Line Regalia" link to get to the “On Line Store" at "Fieldhouse" link and you are there. There are a variety of colors for each of the items of clothing that are available and you can match a variety of logo colors to go on your article of clothing. If you are willing to give them an e-mail address, you even get a 10% discount. So I recommend that you give it a try! The web site or ordering and viewing items is: www.fieldhouse.com/mg. You can always shop for yourself as well. That way you are guaranteed the perfect present.
| || 2nd Annual Halloween Run |
October 31, 2010
The 2nd Halloween Run will be held on Sunday October 31st, in the Northwest Suburbs. The Halloween Run does not include any competitive driving, there are no trick questions, and there will be no confusing instructions. You just follow the general directions and chase a few ghosts. There will be no need for special tuning, no helmets are required, no penalties will be assessed, and encyclopedic knowledge about MG will not be a competitive advantage. It will be that simple! And the additional benefit? No need for arguments or fist fights with your co-driver or navigator.
We will meet at 10:00 AM in front of the Caribou Coffee in the Poplar Creek shopping center in Hoffman Estates at the Route 59/Sutton Road exit of I-90. If you come from the East, turn North on Route 59/Sutton Road at the light at the end of the exit ramp, then turn left on the entrance road for the mall area at the first traffic light on Route 59. (turn left at the end of the ramp and left at the second traffic light if you come on I-90 from the West). The Caribou Coffee is not immediately in the line of sight because it is hidden a little bit behind the Claim Jumper Restaurant.
The Halloween Run starts at 10:30 AM. The Run is about 40 miles long and will take about 2 1/2 hours. We will finish at The Onion Pub and Brewery in Lake Barrington (on Pepper Road just North of the Northwest Highway) where we can have lunch and sample some of the Wild Onion Brewery beers. Check out the restaurant and the brewery www.onionpub.com
We planned the finish of the rally early, 1:00 PM, so that you can skip lunch at the Onion if you need to be home for Trick or Treat with family or in your neighborhoods.
To return back to I-90 from The Onion is about 10 miles, either on Route 14/Northwest Highway and Route 59/Sutton Road, or via Route 14/Northwest Highway and Barrington Road.
