The Windy City to Celebrate 1 Year of the Rain... Actively on June 16th!

UPDATE ON PARTY DETAILS CAN BE FOUND HERE! MANGIA! MANGIA! and Celebrate Active Rain in Chicago-land this June 16th

 

Well the Rain Gods have spoken, (actually the Rain Goddess) and its official.

Chicago is to be a celebration destination for Active Rain's 1 Year Anniversary Party Tour.

The date for Chicago's event will be Saturday June 16th. Other events are scheduled for:

Here is what I know so far...

Exact Time... TBA. Exact Location... TBA. Why are the details TBA (to be announced)?  Because the Metro-Chicago area is HUGE and we want to accommodate as many people as possible. Knowing who is interested, and where you are coming from will help us plan where to have it. Remember, many active bloggers here in the Rain are from way out in Dupage County and beyond.

Currently I am thinking the the Oak Brook Area would be the ideal location, because it is in the middle of the Metro "Windy" Region.

So... if you are interested in actively celebrating the Rain's 1st Anniversary, PLEASE just RSVP in a comment below.

As this Anniversary Party unfolds, I will have my people contact your people... or I might just post another blog with the details.

Party On...

Me

PS: I have been told that one of the Rain Gods will be attending... which Rain God (Matt, Ben, Caleb, Jon or James) I am not sure. I am ALMOST sure it won't be one of their "flat" clones.

Craig, lots of TBA. Sounds intriguing and quite the coo!!! Who better to organize such a feat, than CRAIG Schiller! It would be great if you guys could figure out how to have an active screen in real time where other members who can not attend could watch elsewhere. Party on!!!

Craig,

Oak Brook is a great choice. Close to several tollways. Lots of hotels and, of course, great shopping.

I'll be there (and this is so much better than driving in snow).

Anyone organizing a party NORTH of the border? 
Posted by Sandi Gerrard over 13 years ago
It just occurred to me that I could probably fly to Chicago cheaper than I could drive to Orlando!

Just in case anyone of you are not able to make it to Chicago...

Please feel free to RSVP for the Orlando Florida Active Rain Gathering 

Hope everyone will try to attend at least one of these Gatherings or put together their own with other members in their area.

Craig, I would definitely be interested.  I also vote for downtown, but it is a drive for me either way. Can't wait to hear the details...

Would you consider posting this in the Chicago Southshore/Nothwest Indiana group?  You may get some response from us Hoosiers.
