Original Letter From Rob (12/1997)
Over the past two summers, thanks to the initiative of a few guys,
the old spirit of 702 Mound Street has been rekindled and preserved.
As drunk and disorderly as the previous two Chop Block Parties have been,
the numbers in attendance have been small, but increasing.
Feedback from the brothers out there alluded to the fact that guys
can't make the trip that far up north.
Well, here is your make up test.
In 1998, the Chop Block Party is coming to Chicago, [Arlington Heights
to be exact]. We hope to have a large turnout with the change of venue .
Even if it means some brothers only coming for one event and then
going home to the ball and chain.
We are therefore starting early this year, because the number of
will dictate some of the events to be held and what hotel to stay at, etc .,
Tentatively, as in previous years, the first weekend in August will be
for Chop Block Party Three.
July 31st - August 1st - August 2nd, 1998
The early arrival party on Friday Evening is tentatively at Dumas
Bar & Grill. AS USUAL, the bar tab will be picked up by yours truly
[Rob LaVeau], unless the attendance is low and then I pick up
the whole damn tab, just like the past two years parties.
Saturday's event will include the traditional picnic cookout complete
with beer, brats, activities for the kids, and of course more beer.
Saturday night will be the White Rose Informal. The venue for this
again depends on attendance. Tentatively, a party room is reserved at
the Radison Hotel. Details will follow. We would like the informal to include
a memorabilia table of Lambda Chi and 702 Mound Street, so if
you got something bring it!!! There will also be the extremely popular
Audio/Video presentation of our years at 702 Mound Street by Max Burrus.
The Sunday Brunch will again conclude the festivities and begin the
Journey back home.
Hotel Accommodations are reserved at the Radison of Arlington Heights.
Twenty rooms are reserved at a rate of $69.00 per night. There is a shuttle
bus from O'Hare airport to the hotel. We are hoping to arrange a shuttle bus
on Saturday from the Hotel to the picnic grounds and back, but that
depends on attendance . If enough people show interest a lot can be done.
The 3rd Annual Hang-Over Golf Tournament is TBA at this point.
I would appreciate any help from the other brothers in the Chicago Area.
My time, as is all of ours, is limited. Hopefully, a committee could be
set up to make things go smooth and assure a great Chop Block Party Three.
Yours in ZAX,
