There is lots to see and do in and around Chicago in addition to coming to the Highland Games next month. Here's just a sample: there is shopping, of course, at the Woodfield Mall, located at 5 Woodfield Mall, Schaumburg, IL. But there's lots, lots more: Shedd Aquarium, Art Institute of Chicago, Adler Planetarium, Field Museum, Skydeck Chicago, Museum of Science and Industry, the Navy Pier, Millennium Park, Grant Park, the Silver Bean (known as Cloud Gate), Chicago Botanic Garden, and Chicago theaters, and I'm sure there's more! So come join us in 3 weeks!!

Several people have already emailed to say they have plans to attend the Games and AGM. It should be a great time to meet with new and former clan members.

Look forward to seeing you there, Dale Stockley
