Those areas wouldn't hurt. Crete is partially in the 34th District but Monee and Peotone are not.

I might be able to hit this on my way out of town on Sunday.

Just take 394 (Bishop Ford-Calumet exp) south and it will turn into route 1. When you get into Beecher watch for the PRINCESS CAFE on your right. Turn right onto Indiana Ave and continue till you cross the RR X. The next street on your right is Gould. Again turn right and come on in.

If you like OLD buildings Beecher has them.

They had a good turn out.
BTW, the creepy guy with the cameras, that was me.

I predicted that Chicago/Cook county will be sold out in order to get "shall issue".
Based on the restrictions on carry in Chicago/Cook County, I was right.

Sorry but all of those nasty names have been patented by me years ago. :shocked: Glad to see you there.

There were over 80 chairs occupies at the meeting. A lot of folks with concerns got their questions answered and were surprised at some of them. Great meeting folks.

And this meeting only had a week to spread the word and was held way out in the boonies.

When I arrived home wearing my IGOLD shirt a neighbor from across the street came over and we made arrangements to take MOM,DAD,And children to the range for lessons this summer.

Then the next door neighbor asked if their family could also take a trip to the range. :thumbsup:

Guess I should wear out the shirt before the next IGOLD march.
