Well...............speak up and let us know if you plan to attend or not.

We need to make plans with regards to the number of members planning to attend.

Make a suggestion for the June meeting IF, the Indiana/Illinois joint meeting is not able to happen.

Carol and I will go out to the State park this weekend, and pick a location for the show. I will also post directions on how to get there.

O.K., Carol and I went to the Kankakee state park today and picked a location for next months' truck show/picnic. We will meet in Silver Poplar grove. It has a grill, a couple of picnic tables, and is near restroom facilities. If by chance that grove is occupied, we will meet in River Birch grove instead. Again, the date is May 15th, with a rain date of May 22. Please respond to this thread to register. The directions to the Kankakee state park are: from north-take IL RT.45 south to William Latham drive, take a right on Latham and take that to IL RT.102, take a right on 102 and the state park is a few miles out of town on the left side of the road. You will see the main entrance to the park, it is marked by a big brown sign. Go in there, and follow the park road to the left, all of the groves are marked by brown wooden signs, just look for Silver Poplar. From south-take IL RT.45 north to IL RT.102, there is a turnoff for RT.102 across from the Olivet Nazarene college. Take 102 a few miles out of town and the state park is on the left. Again, go into the park and head to the left, and look for Silver Poplar grove. By the way, Carol and I are planning on getting there early that day to set up, and we will be driving a brown and white 73 Ford pickup.

May 15th

We are getting very close to holding our first informal show/picnic event.

I hope many of you plan to join us at Kanakee River State Park next weekend.

As we had mentiond previously, there will be no classes, awards, etc. at this event.

Our intention is to meet and enjoy everyone's company, truck and have a peaceful day by the river.

Speak up to voice if you will attend or not.

I may try to find the family badmition set so we could use it or the Illinois Chapter children could.

Remember to bring a lawn chair as well.

Fastronald - Illinois Chapter Leader.

I sure hope that the weather is nice next Sunday for our first ever IL Chapter truck show! I'm having a little "problem" with the steering wheel on the 73 Ford which I hope to have fixed by next Sunday. It had an aftermarket custom steering wheel on it, and I took that off and replaced it with a stock Ford steering wheel. The problem is that whoever put the custom wheel on it used some sort of installation kit, and now the stock wheel doesn't fit correctly. The truck is still driveable, but there is a gap between the steering column and the wheel. I still intend on driving the 73, even if I can't fix the steering wheel. It's a really nice looking truck, and I'd like to show it off, even if the steering wheel looks kinda funky.
Carol and I are looking forward to the show next Sunday. We're looking forward to seeing everyone, and hopefully seeing alot of nice Ford trucks.
