Get Looped!

Poll: Should the CLC date be postponed

This year will mark the 18th anniversary of the Chicago Loop Cruise. A few of those years have been warm, dry and even calm. But the vast majority of the past 17 years have been cold and or wet. It is, afterall, the last weekend in April and in Chicago, that can mean weather that ranges from snow to 85 degrees or more... often in the same week.

A lot effort goes into this event. I don't mean t-shirts, but effort on the part of attendees to book hotel rooms, schedule time off work, prepare boats, travel etc. Poor weather generally leads all but the crazy few to cancel, which means all that hard work to prepare to attend this event has been for nothing more often than not. On at least two occasions, the event was completely cancelled due to bad weather for the entire planned weekend.

2017 Chicago Loop Cruise is a GO!

Break out those thermal undies and rain gear!! We are headed for Chicago!!!!

Despite a less than ideal forecast, the 2017 Chicago Loop Cruise is a GO!!! We will likely be running the "Half Looped" route, approaching Chicago from the Illinois Ship & Sanitary Canal and the Chicago River. We will proceed through downtown Chicago all the way to the Chicago Lock but will not lock through. We then turn around and return to Worth.

The Chicago Loop Cruise is much more than a boat ride... We will be having a good time at the hotel beginning Friday afternoon! if it is raining steadily Saturday morning, and shows little chance of improvement, we may choose to wait until Sunday to run the actual cruise portion... but I am very hopeful for a run on SATUDAY!!! Regardless, Saturday night is sure to be a rocking good time back at the hotel, rain or shine!

I know the weather is not for everyone, and certainly understand if you do not want to attend. However, please do everything you can to pick up your t-shirts or make arrangements for someone to get them for you. I do not have my own personal shipping department, so shipping this much stuff is very complicated and costly.
