June Hike (6/1/19) »

Come hike the Middlefork Savanna Forest Preserve with us.  The path is mostly flat, consisting of gravel and grass—easy walking. The route will consist of part of a half-mile loop and then a northerly path. As opposed to setting a distance, before we start we’ll set a time limit for going north, then turn around, retrace our steps to the loop and continue around.

The path is mostly in the open, so sunscreen and/or hats are recommended. Bring water.  This event is being hosted by Howard Cheskin.
After the hike we will be having lunch at the Silo Restaurant, 625 Rockland Road, Lake Bluff, IL.
You must RSVP to attend this event.  For contact information email and look for “June Hike (6/1/19)” the the suto response from Nancy Drew.
Give Howard your cell phone number for use day of hike and bring your phone along!
There are restroom facilities in the Wildlife Discovery Center building near our meeting point, but none on the path.
Lunch after the walk will be at 
The Silo Restaurant
625 Rockland Road
Lake Bluff, IL

Club 50’s Golf Outing 

Club 50 golfers play nine holes on a different public course each week May through November. Some of our members walk the course; others ride. Our golfers are of all levels of experience; however, we ask that beginners who want to join us have taken some lessons and played before. Enjoy lunch afterwards.  The specifics of time and place are sent out each week by email.  To be loaded on the golfer’s group list, email and look for “Golf” in the auto response.  (The site is unmanned so please don’t send mail to it).
Email notification will be sent to those on the golfing list and NOT to the entire membership.

2019 Sailing

Captain David Thiessen invites Club 50 members to sail on his 31-foot sloop, the Phriendship Too, on Lake Michigan. No longer confined to Wednesdays and Thursdays, he will send out weekly emails about the best days for sailing.  He checks the weather the morning of the sail to confirm with guests by phone.  Bring a snack and drink.  To join the group, email and look for “Golfing” in the auto response fromNancy Drew. (The contact is the same for both the golfing and sailing events.)  You will receive email notices from Captain Dave.
