And I'm in for this!

Because you're in, I'm in. :|
As enticing as it is, I am out. Understand that it's not because of who is or isn't attending. My current work schedule makes doing things during the day difficult, if not impossible.

I am 50/50 on attending this meet (not because I don't want to deal with the Chicago traffic, but it's because I don't have a vaccine (and I don't want to get one even though I want to go)).

Donít worry about it.  None of the venues require a vaccine.  Come and enjoy the day.  Iím probably not going to any of the after stuff myself unless I feel like a Malnattiís pizza, and I am vaccinated.

Out of curiosity, have you attended other road meets before, or would this be your first one?

Welcome to the party.  For the record, I hold one in northern Illinois/Indiana every year or two and will have one in 2022 that may interest you too.

I certainly understand where Nikolai is coming from in his desire to try to restrict attendance at this meet only to folks who are vaccinated.  However, this is the first time that a host of a road meet has announced a vaccination requirement for attendance.  That generally hasn't been done, even during the pandemic, until now.  Please don't let that deter you from considering attending other road meets in the future.  They are a lot of fun and you get to meet some really cool people who share the same interest in roads.  :)

I appreciate this not turning into a vaccine debate. I think it would be best to respect the host's wishes for any given meet, and that's all I'll say about that - as long as the host isn't restricting something like race.

I should reiterate for clarification that I'm not requiring vaccination for the actual meet tour, which is almost entirely outdoors. It's just needed for the higher-risk activities like the indoor restaurants.

The meet is this Saturday! To help me plan as much as possible in advance, I request that attendees complete this survey.

Bring along a mask, because Illinois currently requires them in indoor public spaces.

Unfourtantly, I won't be attending this road meet due to a high school football team that I will be watching in Cary being in the playoffs, and I know someone who coaches on that said team.

It was quite a chilly day, but we traveled the route with ease. Here's my group photo.
