Sunday, May 15th - Spring Poker Run II

Still in the planning phase but like our Poker Run last fall, we'll come up with an interesting drive through the countryside. And play a poker hand along way. This year, we are going to do our "big meal" at a stop in the middle of the run. We will stop for a drink at the end and share the results of the poker hand. We should have plans finalized by May 1st.

Sunday, July 31st - Sunday Fun Day - Trip to Wheels O' Time Museum

We've just firmed up this date for July 31st. This event is a one-day trip to Dunlap, IL (just northwest of Peoria). We'll visit the Wheels O' Time Museum. We'll be headed to breakfast first, then driving onto Dunlop to visit the museum. Still in the planning phase, we'll drive southwest from the Elgin, IL area primarily down Route Illinois Route 72.

We'll plan to leave Elgin around 8:00 am, have breakfast along the way and drive through to the museum with a couple of refueling stops along the way. We're thinking a two-to-three-hour museum visit, then heading back home with an optional dinner at an interesting restaurant along the way back home.
