    SECOND ANNUAL GIANT CHAZZER MIDWEST MEET UP!!!!!

    When: Saturday, May 31, 2014; 1 PM
    and the weekend there-of, if you can't do Saturday, don't worry! The die hards will likely do it up on Saturday & Sunday ;)

    Where: East Branch Dog Park, Glendale Heights, IL area.

    The park entrance is off of swift road. Use the address of 2N675 Swift Rd, Lombard, IL 60148 in order to get close - this is not the actual address! Refer to map (linked above) for the exact location.

    Please purchase a park pass ($20) here: www.DupageForest.com

    You can get Daily Dog Permits by mail or by fax.
    Phone: (630) 933-7248 Fax: (630) 933-7217
    If you have access to a fax machine, that's what I'd recommend. It takes 2 seconds and they fax it back to you pretty immediately.

    They don't check for passes at the park but if they randomly do, there is a $75 fine. So play at your own risk.

    Hotel/s:
    Red Roof Inn, Downers Grove (probably most popular place to stay) to the south 25 minutes

    If anybody would like to camp, let me know!!!



    Some pictures of the park to inspire your attendance. It is an off leash forest preserve where there are physical barriers instead of actual fences. It's really not suitable for leashed dogs or long lines. We are walking constantly with intermittent stops at beaches around the pond, so the dogs stick pretty close (obviously you all know your dogs best but don't let the lack of fences be a deal-breaking issue).

    Omigosh, Abrams was so tiny! :D

    If I'm still local I will definitely be attending! (Hoping I won't be local...as that will mean Mike has deployed right after A school.) Even if I'm not local, I may have to come back to see my family and meet up!

    I just finished looking through all the pictures from the summer again, holy cow was it fun!

    I'm still so tickled with how many people showed up, getting to meet everyone and get to see all these dogs in person. Still completely amazed at how great everyone got along, all the dogs fit together so perfectly.
