Interestingly enough, I believe I will be in Schaumburg that entire week flying out Friday night. We got an email today saying that our Friday event had been cancelled, so I may be able to stop in for the day. I believe my flight out was at nine something that evening. I'll check back once an agenda comes through.

Hate that I know this off the top of my head, but the last Delta flight out of ORD is at 7:30 pm. And, it's usually delayed! :(

I stopped by Lauderdale Lakes Chicago this afternoon for a brief meeting.

A few updates:

First, looks like Friday’s golf outing will be an afternoon event, wrapping up around 5:00 p.m. and followed by the evening social at Lauderdale Lakes Chicago. Hoping to hold the golf outing at the club conveniently located across the street from Lauderdale Lakes Chicago.

Second, there is a possibility that Skiers Choice will have a 2013 model Moomba, 2013 model Supra, and Supra’s Rockstar wake boat on display for the Friday evening social event.

Third, Saturday’s day on the water will launch in the morning from Fox River Preserve and have its final stop late in the afternoon at Fox River Grove beach. There will be meet up locations throughout the day along the river for anyone arriving late.

For those needing lodging, there are a number of hotel choices in the general area. The Hampton Inn in nearby McHenry is close by, located approximately 4 miles from Lauderdale Lakes Chicago. I will be asking for a discounted group rate.

Lauderdale Lakes Chicago will be setting up a Facebook account to handle invites and communicate event information. In addition, Skiers Choice will be making announcements and providing information.

Keep in mind that the final round of the Rockstar WWA Wakeboard World Championships presented by Supra will take place on Sunday. Event venue is Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin, located about thirty-seven miles northeast of Lauderdale Lakes Chicago.

Will keep you posted as reunion weekend details and more information come together.

Reunion dates: Friday, August 17 – Sunday, August 19.

Saturday Aug 18th - Day on the lower fox river. We plan to launch in the am nearby Lauderdale Lakes Chicago. There are a few launch ramps to choose from and water levels are low in some areas making some launch ramps easier to load/unload depending on location.

The plan is to end the day at the Fox River Grove Beach for an anchor/tie off.

So far we are getting some great response from owners wanting to participate. We have t-times booked for those that have expressed desire to play golf Friday. We can add more if necessary, but need to know ASAP. Call the shop (815-788-1111) for details and to book a t-time.

The Friday evening social at Lauderdale Lakes Chicago (http://www.lauderdalelakesmarina.com/custompage.asp?pg=chicago)will begin at 5pm at the dealership. We will have food & drink. Families welcome, bring your kids. 2013 product is arriving and we anticipate having the new SA on display in the showroom friday evening, along with other 2013 Supra & Moomba boat models.

Saturday, the boating day will begin at 9 am launch at Lake County Forest Preserve (http://www.lcfpd.org/preserves/index.cfm?fuseaction=home.view&object_id=21283&type=P). The launch area is nice and big with plenty of parking. We will make our way down river to Port Barrington Marina Bar & Grill (http://www.portbarringtonbarandgrill.com/)to meetup at 10am until 11:30. We will then make out way to Broken Oar Marina Bar & Grill (http://brokenoar.com/site/). Good spot for Lunch but limited parking and shallow water, so if you're coming, be careful by the launch area. The rocks from powering up have kept the prop guys busy this summer. At 1pm we will continue North to Keif's Reef (https://plus.google.com/110892236107356145411/about?gl=us&hl=en#110892236107356145411/about). More parking, sand volleyball, outside Tiki Bar, very kid friendly. Sometime around 3 pm we can head back down south to the Fox River Grove "Picnic Grove" throw anchor, tie up and enjoy the rest of the day.

Sunday, any participants are welcome to join us at World's in WI. We are the host dealer, will have VIP tent tickets available, roped off parking for Supra/Moomba Boat owners wanting to display their "Pride & Joy", giveaways, baggo, games, prizes and good times. What else do you expect from the USA's #1 Skiers Choice Dealer.

We are looking forward to this weekend and hope to see you there!!! Remember, everything is kid/family friendly and encouraged. Bring one, bring all.

Here's a map of where the sandbar tie-up area is for Saturday....
