Attached are two files for directions to the hotel for
those driving and flying in. One's in Word format and
one as a text file. 

Here's the latest. We have a total of 12 people
attending. I'll confirm with the restaurant on the
banquet this weekend. I faxed the reservations on
Thursday. Also, I have the tickets for the Shedd
Aquarium and CTA passes for everyone and they will be
included in your welcome folder.

So far, I have 3 cars and one van, so we will no
problems with getting to lunch, etc. If anyone still
wants to come to the banquet, let me know. I sent the
reservations for 16 people.

As of for the weather, we are expecting a warm spell
towards the middle of the week, but no rain. I will
know more towards the eve of the con. Everyone's names
have been submitted to the hotel, I will Fax another
list before Wednesday to them. Still have one more
registration coming and that's one from my area.

So, I'm not the only one from here attending the con.
I'm looking forward to seeing all of you and I'll have
one more update before the con. See you then.

		    Adamcon 18 Directions to Hotel and 
Hotel Shuttle Pickup Info.

For those who are driving to the convention. There are major construction projects going in the area. The biggest one is the Dan Ryan Expressway (I-90-I-94). Other projects are I-94, I-80-294, IL-394 interchange reconstruction. I-294 Tri-State Tollway-fourth lane being added between 163rd toll plaza and 95th St. There will be delays, so please allow extra time.

Do NOT take I-94 to Chicago from I-80-94 as it will run into the Dan Ryan and only 2 lanes are open in each direction. If you do, expect major delays.

Please follow these directions to the Super 8 Motel in Elk Grove Village, IL:

If coming from Canada and Michigan, Take I-94 straight to I-294 Tri-State Tollway. Continue to I-90 Northwest Tollway, exit is on the right, then stay in left lane. After the toll plaza continue to Lee St. Turn left at (IL-72) Touhy Ave. Hotel will be on your left.

If coming from Ohio, Take I-80 toll roads to I-94. Then follow as above to the hotel.

If you have an Easy-Pass unit, the tollway WILL accept it through I-Pass lanes. Otherwise the toll is 80 cents and you will need to pay 4 tolls. (163rd, 83rd, Cermak Rd. and DesPlaines on I-90).

For those flying into O-Hare, contact the motel at 847-827-3133 and ask to be picked up and mention that your with Adamcon 18. For those flying into Midway, let me know and I will pick you up at the arrival area of the airport. My cellphone number is 708-214-7420. If possible, let me know your arrival time.

If you are going to be delayed, let me know and I’ll see if the hotel will still pick you up or I will be more than happy to. We are looking forward to seeing you in Chicago.
