Spring Chicken Rally
May 7, 2017 - 10:00am

I hope you have saved the date of Sunday, May 7 for this years Spring Chicken Run. We are almost a month earlier this year, so we hope the global warming continues. We will be starting at the same place at the Deer Park Town Center shopping mall on the northwest corner of Rand Road, Hwy 12 and Deer Park Blvd. in the same lot as last year, next to the Starbucks. It is easy to see once you are at the strip mall. There is also a Panara Bakery just across from the Starbucks. The center of the mall where we meet is on the west side of Hwy 12 for the new-bees that will be joining us. We will start the Drivers Meeting at 10:00am. The drive will be approximately 1 1/2 hours and we will end up at the same local watering hole as 2015, where you can order lunch from the menu. Yes they have chicken along with other items. The spot is Cruisin, located in Gilberts. The address is 11 Galligan Rd, Gilberts, IL 60136, for those that just want to join us for lunch. Their web site is: There will also be a few challenging questions for the navigators to answer along the way. Jana and I look forward to seeing you at this years drive. Please let me know if you will be attending so we can provide the information to Cruisin.
