I just scanned all the major Chicago news outlets on the internet, and so far, not a word.

WBBM radio did a brief report from SAFR at 11:30. They have a reporter there.
She reports the crowd at about 300 people.

I just saw a segment on it on ABC news at 4:30. I'm glad that it was on the news, but it pisses me off that Chicago news won't cover IGOLD.

Drylok -

I heard your call on Sisco's show! Are you Scott? I was driving to work and listening to his show on the radio. I heard your call...you were great!

I was disappointed that I had to work and couldn't be there...

Thanks to all who attended and thanks to Scott for calling the show. And thanks for all the great photos.

And We even had a representative from the feared Bikers for Browning...... It's a small but powerful lobby.

Part of the assembly area for Transformers 3 On the way back to union station Corner of Washington and Franklin.
It looked to me like normal construction debris until I saw a 10 by 30 foot piece of debris move without any construction equipment running, It startled me until It turned out to be two guys moving a giant piece of "Hollywooded" Styrofoam by hand.

Nice shirt, Lou!! :thumbsup:


Thanks Coach. I save it and only wear it 2-3 times a year and one of them is SAFR.

I've got about 170 photos but it'll take me a day or 3 to sort and edit them.
