Fri Aug 20, Mokvinia II This event is open to Piccadilly Ski Club members.  The Godfather Part II was better than the first.  Here’s banking on the same outcome for Mockvinia II.   It’s Ravinia, only a lot closer to home, with indoor plumbing and good parking. LOL  Come set up in our back yard for a “concert” of the summer. 

 

We provide: the backyard shady setting, bug spray, hand sanitizer, and some nonalcoholic beverages and snacks, plus the best part - piped in music of the summer.  Ravinia’s line up this year includes: Train, Beach Boys, Willie Nelson and more. We’ll do you one better: Roches have come up with the ultimate “mixed party tape”.  So buckle up, folks.

 

You Provide: your own Ravinia style picnic (food, beverages) chairs, candles, blanket, Ravinia table,  etc. Feel free to coordinate your meals with your friends. 

 

 

Limited 36 people only due to size of backyard not due to Covid! Please sign up via MeetUp.  An email  with the address will be sent to Piccadilly Ski Club Members prior to the event. Thank you!  Dawn & Mike

Sat Sept 11, Bill & Ted’s Excellent Fox River Adventure IV, 10:00 am Join Bill & Ted for another excellent paddling adventure down the Fox River. Kayak rentals are $35 and two-person canoe rentals are $50. Shuttle service is not included, so we will assign drivers to park at the end point and drivers to shuttle them to the start point. For the health and safety of our drivers and paddlers, this adventure is for vaccinated members only. Paddlers must supply their own food, water, and other beverages for the entire journey.

 

Subject to river conditions (high or low water), we plan to put in just below the Montgomery Dam at South Broadway Park in Montgomery IL. Our lunch stop will be at Hudson Crossing Park in Oswego IL. Both potable water and porta potties are available at this stop. As we continue down river, there is an optional stop at Saw Wee Kee Park in Yorkville IL, but the porta potties are a bit of a hike from the river. We will take out just above the Yorkville Dam at Bicentennial Riverfront Park in Yorkville IL. Expect the adventure to last four to five hours. At journey’s end, the survivors will select one of the restaurants west of the park for dinner, craft beer, and celebration.

 

A check payable to Piccadilly Ski Club for the cost of your rental is required to reserve your spot on the trip. Your vaccination card must be shown to Bill any time prior to the shuttle phase of the journey, The trip will go rain or shine, in the absence of lightning, with no refunds unless your spot is filled from the wait list. Email Bill: bciciora@yahoo.com or Ted: ted@dupagemachine.com for any additional information about this most excellent adventure.
