Saturday's getting closer, weather's looking great and we're excited.
A few other attendees committed off-line and we're expecting a good turn out.

Day's activities will be a mixture...
- "Casual riding" on the track (below Stayers' Line) will be allowed when work isn't being performed and the surface is clear.
- Painting- medium to large-sized, on plywood and steel.
- Patch-work on the track surface.
- Finer repair work on the small fissures and the apron.
- Assembly of monster-sized erector set (ADA ramp).
- Feel free to bring friends and food to add to the grill!

* Car pool to conserve energy! :) Comment or message us to arrange rides.
** METRA stop is 2 blocks away and allows bikes on trains.
