What a fantastic outing we have planned for this month!
We will travel to Channahon State Park on Friday night. We’ll get up on Saturday morning, fix breakfast, pack our gear and head out – either on bikes or on foot – your choice. We will re-group at Dollinger Farms for their annual Civil War Days and eat lunch with one of the Armies. Afterward, we will watch the battle re-enactment. Later, we will hike/bike to McKinley Woods for Saturday’s overnight camping. Situated on the water where the Des Plaines and Kankakee Rivers converge, it’s a great place to spend a night. On Sunday morning, retrieve the cars from Channahon then pack up and head home.
You can grab this month’s permission slip here. Cost for the weekend is $22 ($15 for food plus $7 to enter the Civil War battlefield). Please return the permission slip and your money (Cash only) at the Oct 13th meeting.
