Default 2nd Annual Midwest Meet: Chicago area, May 31st, 2014


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:

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.

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!

If I'm still local I will definitely be attending! (Hoping I won't be 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!
