Hello, As most of you know, WindyCon is coming up, and WindyCon is one of the places where Chicago Force likes to go. We've come to realize that not everyone has a desire (or fundage) to go to this convention...but would still like to participate. We've had some grand success with having an independent dinner-party in close proximity of the conventions. This way EVERYONE can hang out. Well, at this point we're looking at going to "Mars 2112". For those of you who don't know, it's a funky restaurant with a space theme. go to: http://www.mars2112.com/3.html for a panoramic view. Anyway, we're thinking that 6pm would be a good time unless we find that there will be a con event that will be too good to miss at that time. I'll be sending an invite out to everyone on the Chicago Force mailing list. So if you haven't registered yet (for the mailing list)...just click the "CHICAGO FORCE" at the top left hand corner of this screen. If anyone has a more interesting idea..or a reason for a different date or time, please let me know ASAP before we start solidifying our plans.
