Sunday June 30.

Launch is 9:30. I went on this run last year.
Met a lot of people and had a great time!
The ride through downtown Chicago was beautiful. I think we were back in Alsip by 3:30. We may go to boaters beach this year if I can hook up with someone that knows where it's at.:D

I thought it was called boater beach but not sure if it's the same as beach Hotwater.

I wouldn't be opposed to staying out on the lake but I do have a 2 hour drive back after
loading and cleaning the boat.

If you drive at the speed obnoxus is usuall going(wot)you might make it in a hour. It takes a half hour to 45 minutes from our launch to the locks.Once out of the locks,it's
7 1/2 miles to the lake. From the begining of the lake opening to hotwater is about another 20 miles.


So you do the math.You gotta understand,in obnoxus land,you need to at least double his time estimates,or drive like him,whichever is easier:D :D I say double his estimates,cause even at his usual warp speed,it's very doubtful to make it there in a hour:confused: :gunner:

I would still like to launch in Alsip and make the run through Chicago. We will arrive at Dick's between 11-11:30 for lunch and then lock out to the lake. If you don't want to do the fun run I would meet you on the lake but I would still need help getting back to the Calumet lock. After lunch everyone is basically on their own and I'm sure last year some of the boats went to beach Hotwater. As long as boaters from the fun run go there I should have no problem getting back. What do you think?
