Shouldn't be a problem to look at airfares now. Usually they'll do a year in advance, I think. Kayak.com says Minneapolis > Chicago round trip that weekend is in the neighborhood of $200.


I remember, I paid $169.00 for round trip in August to Mpls last year. Holly minnehaha...I don't know how I remembered it with my crappy memory :!: ( must have been a very significant event :) )

Any idea how far in advance we'd need to nail that down? I'm always in favor of waiting as long as possible (there could always be a tour you know :whistle: ) but it sounds like a great idea & I'd hate to put it off too long & miss out, it sounds like an excellent way to go. You said the Cubs were in town that weekend, do they tend to rent to fans for the games & fill up early?


I know... dem Cub fans might be a major competition and spoiling factor for putting dibs on things, I probably shouldn't even put the links to the potential places to stay in the open for everybody to see just pm them to all the interested parties here ( I'm going here into a full conspiracy mode beep....beep...beep :ninja: ).

So, how many people do we have now, how many almost surethings how many maybes, stillthinkings and so on?



Don't blame it on the Cub fans! :dry: :x :lol:

Actually, some of the haciendas offer parking in the garage, I discovered it after a more careful reading of what's included in the deal! This is good news for the folks who consider driving, maybe we can't fit ten cars in the garage but a couple for sure.

I live in Chicago. I'll be so excited to see everyone. =] I, too, will help in researching what we could transfix our trip around.

I don't think that I'll be there. :cry: Planning on the 1st 2 weeks in Denver for camping and choir stuff; then if possible back to Denver again for the Straydog party in August.

I LOVE Chicago though, and it is a beautiful city to be in. Don't forget the Art Institute and Lou Mitchell's Diner (They've got a killer Pecan Belgian Waffle). That's what I enjoyed most from our trip there in March, as well as a warming shot of Bushmill's from a flask in the park in Ina & Ron.

I hope you all go and have a great time though, and I hope that we'll see some of you in Colorado as well!

such a shame these dates don't coincide with the Straydog party in Colorado. Matt and I will be in Chicago for a couple of days from Sunday 5th August before hooking up with Shane and Elisa for a mini road trip to Denver for the party - would love to meet up with anyone who is going to be around. also would welcome the usual advice on places to stay/drink/eat/avoid/must-sees etc
thanks gang xx

Hmm wonder if I could swing up to Chicago to say hi on the 5th, maybe!

Sounds fun Helen. What's the skinny on Straydogs? I hear the name all the time & I joined up with something on fb but I don't see any dates or location for that meet?
