I was happy to see this too Lisa. While Chicago isn't exactly in my back yard, it's a lot closer than Florida. Yeah!

I am so glad it is going back to Chicago - Orlando in the summer is not the place to visit. I love Rosemont, so was way happy when I got that e-mail today. Plus we just ride the train over from Michigan, so easy.

Default Charter bus from Madtown?

I know it's a ways off, but would anyone be interested in a taking a party ... I mean charter ... bus from Madison, WI?

Depending on interest we could make it a one-day thing or a weekend thing. It sure would take care of the hassle of driving and parking, to say nothing of the socializing we could do. What do you think?

Pm me or post, if there's enough interest in the possibility, I can check for cost and availability.

Hi Kim!

"Anyone" who purchases a ticket is welcome to attend the 2 days of the CHA Craft Supershow! Attendees are able to 'shop' i.e. "buy" at a retail basis at this part!
(In other words .... start savin' up!)
