The CVMC Spring Cruise to Volo is now officially set!
It will be Sunday May 20, 2007.
We will meet at 12:00 noon at Ned Brown Forst Preserve / Busse Woods.
We will then cruise together as a group to the Volo Auto Museum, in Volo, IL. (http://www.volocars.com
Our meeting place will be in the Forest Preserve near the entrace off of Golf Road
just east of I-290/53. (See picnic area 29 on This Map
Enter at the park entrance from Golf Road, and then look for the first picnic area on the left.
At about 12:30 or so, we will leave to head to Volo.
We will go west on Golf Road (58) to Higgins Road (72).
We will follow Higgins north-west to Route 59.
We will follow Route 59 north to Route 120.
We will follow Route 120 west to the second intersection - Volo Village Road.
We will turn right on Volo Village Road, and then left on Fox Lake Road - to the museum entrance.
I have talked to the Group Reservation department at Volo, and they have invited us to park in the Collector Car Lot on the grounds while we are there.
If for some reason we find another group already in there, we will be given free parking together in the West Side Park - which is also reserved for groups.
If we are able to bring 15 people or more (should be no problem) , we will be given a group rate of $7.00 to enter the museum (usually $9.00)
There are lots of cool cars to look at - and many of them are for sale!
We can use their snack shop for a quick lunch, and then we will tour the museum as a group.
There are also lots of small shops and antique stores on the grounds for the SWMBO's to check out.
Bring the spouse! Bring the kids! It is a very family friendly place.
If for some reason the forest preserve is busy or closed to traffic for some major event (always possible) we can meet somewhere else nearby.
Call my cell phone at 630-373-3404 if this situation arises.
Hope to see you all there!
