Topic: Meet Marion!

Listen up Chicagoland CC Fighters!

This is Patty in Chicago and I am looking to set up a Chicagoland meeting when Marion will be in our toddlin' town for the ASTRO conference from Sunday, Nov. 1st to Thursday, Nov. 5th. Come meet our very own rock star, she will be signing autographs!

Marion is able to meet in the evening and is staying downtown. I am available whenever and wherever. What day is best for people? I think 7pm would be the earliest since Marion finishes at the conference at 5:50pm.

Here are a few options for the 'where' part:

1. I can host a dinner at my mom's house, located in Jefferson Park on the northwest side of the city, 1 mile from the Nagle exit on I-90 and 2 miles from the Wilson exit on I-94. If we do this, it would be nice if someone could provide Marion with transportation.

2. We can meet at a restaurant, perhaps closer to downtown, and I can give Marion a ride.

3. I can arrange to use the meeting room at the library where I work in Cicero, 1 mile from the Laramie exit on I-290 and a few miles from the Central exit on I-55. I can give Marion a ride if we do this.

4. I can try to get the meeting room at the Chicago Public Library that is closest to where Marion is staying, it is about 3/4 mile from her hotel. Forgot to ask if they allow food and this will be necessary as there will be haggis, Ron is sending it over fresh! I can also give Marion a ride if we do this.

5. Someone else's better idea?

If you are in the area and want to attend, let me know what works best.

Re: Meet Marion!

O.K.  Now I am blushing.  I am really looking forward to meeting up with everyone.  I was not too thrilled having to travel to Chicago in November but, I will be attending an advocate workshop in Philadelphia prior to my trip to Chicago.  Is the weather much different there?  I am also hoping to meet up with anyone and everyone living in the Philadelphia area.
Patty, I am impressed with your organizational skills...wish I had a bit more of that.  I am more like Kris in that regard. 
I don't care where the place of the get-together turns out to be.  I will gladly take a cab to because; meeting up will be the great reward.
Hugs

Resurrecting this thread in case people missed it, I will also e-mail some people I know are in the Chicago area but lots of people have no location listed so I thought there might be more Chicagoans out there.

Patty,

If only I could, I would love to be there to meet Marion, you and any of the others that are there, but it just isn't going to happen for me this time.  I am hoping to hook up with some of you lovely people in the future.  Have fun and enjoy.

Love & Hugs To All,
Darla
