Chicago is Dead...

The Chicago trip is dead in the water.  The cost was too prohibitive for most, and we only had 14 students and two chaperones express interest.  We needed at least 30 people to make it feasible.

I am working on an alternative trip for Saturday, April 28, to Cleveland to see the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, attend an Indians game, and eat dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe.  Details will be available next week.  The cost will be $100 or less.
