    FOURTH ANNUAL GIANT CHAZZER MIDWEST MEET UP!!!!!

    When: Saturday, June 11, 2016 and the weekend thereof

    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 -- to the south 25 minutes. Cheap, but hard to get to.

    La Quinta Inn, Bolingbrook, IL -- nice, dog friendly, easy to get to the park. 25ish minutes to the south.

    There is a local campground as well, or sometimes Linds' family lets us crash in their yard (or in the house/cars like we did last year in the rain).



    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).

    I'm super excited. As long as no issues arise with getting time away from work, I'll be there!
