What's Been "H"appening 09/16/00
by Mike and Sue Hanus, AGWA-Illinois Chapter H

On Saturday, 9/16/00 a dinner run was made to Harry Caray's restaurant
in downtown Chicago by a merry group of 24 AGWA-G, H & "friends of
AGWA". What made this run unique was that it was not made on our bikes,
but by a "private" Metra railcar and a Wendella boat on Lake Michigan!

Thanks to the efforts of Chapter H's Sue Durham and her Metra conductor
friend Joe Pinion, the group enjoyed a private railcar from the Winfield
train station to downtown Chicago. After arriving in Chicago, the
group boarded a water taxi on the Chicago River to the Wrigley Building,
where they boarded a Wendella boat for a cruise on Lake Michigan.

After the cruise, everyone enjoyed a great dinner at Harry Caray's
restaurant.

Thanks to Sue & Joe, the whole event went like clockwork....almost.
After dinner, the members hailed taxi cabs to Northwestern train station
to catch the 8:40PM train.....all except our Chapter Rep (who shall
remain nameLES). The Chapter Rep & his family members got in a taxi &
told the driver "UNION STATION & STEP ON IT!!!).

Needless to say, the Chapter Rep & his family members just barely made
it back to Northwestern Station in time to catch the train. (I thought
I would have to actually use the CPR training I took!!).

Thaks again to Sue Durham & Joe Pinion for making this run a success!
 

Ride Safe!
