Details

This is a continuation of the very successful events from the past 9 summers.

LOCATION:

• Montrose Beach on Lake Michigan (PLEASE see the map above) We will meet at a grass area SOUTH of the beach house - located on the east side N. Simmons Drive, between Wilson and Montrose. If you see the big antenna and/or the big white building, just go a little SOUTH and you will find us!
• See the picture of maps above or a better picture here: http://chicagoveg.com/potluck.htm
• Look for the "ChicagoVeg" sign

TIMING:

• Noon - 1:30 PM - Arrive, socialize, frisbee (introductions and start eating around 12:30PM)
• About 1:30PM - Volleyball begins.

TRANSPORTATION:

• Driving: There is a lot of parking by Montrose Beach, however some of the closer parking may fill up quickly, which is one of the reasons to arrive before noon :)
• Public transportation: Several CTA buses stop at Montrose Beach, although it may be a bit of a walk to the picnic (< 1 mile). For more info: http://tripsweb.rtachicago.com
• Bike: Riding your bike is a good option. Remember, you can usually bring bikes on Chicagoland public transportation.
