New Meetup: Blago Road Rave

From: Kirsten
Sent on: Sunday, June 28, 2009 10:34 PM
Announcing a new Meetup for Windy City Inline Skaters!

What: Blago Road Rave

When: July 3,[masked]:30 PM

Where: Daley Plaza

Since we got rained out last time, we will give it another try! We will end at Navy Pier to watch the fireworks!

Why Blago Rave?

Last year we ran into our infamous ex-Governor Blagojevich during a rave (see here: Reason enough to dedicate a skate to him. Stops include State of Illinois Building, Federal Plaza, Oxxford Clothes Inc and most important, the place where Blago gets his hair cut.

Thanks for putting this route together, Tom!!

We'll take off from the rusty baboon at the Daley Center ( Clark and Washington ) at 7:30PM and end at Navy Pier.

Keep in mind that this event is organized by National Skate Patrol. That means BRING A HELMET!!, they are serious about that (bike helmet, hockey helmet or skateboard helmets are fine). Wrist guards, knee & elbow pads are suggested. Stay with the group , don't run red lights etc.
Skate at your own risk. Bring water. Be prepared to skate 10 miles, stop, turn, go over curbs, potholes, RR tracks, etc. Bring water. There will be none on the route!

Even if you are not used to skating in traffic, give it a try! We'll watch out for you and no one will be left behind.

See you there!
