Tours and Trips
Trip to Cubs Park
For members who are also baseball fans, Chicon 2000 is organizing a trip to
Wrigley Field, on Thursday, 31-Aug-2000. The game
starts at 1:30PM. Tickets for this trip can be purchased at the
Chicon Online Store [www].
Trip to Sox Park?
With the recent success of the Chicago White Sox, Chicon 2000 is left wondering if there
would be enough interest to warrant a trip to
Comiskey Park. If you are interested in visiting the Southside ballpark, please contact
email@example.com and let us know.
Due to massive demand, we have increased the size of the Fermilab tour
to a full size bus carrying 50 people. As of now (01-Aug-2000) I have already
received more than 50 requests for space on the bus. Just about everyone that
has written to me before 31-Jul-2000 should be able to go. I will contact everyone
personally in the next few days to confirm that thay can go, as the tentative
time for the tour had changed from the first posting. We have, at Fermilab's
request, limited the tour to 50 people -- that's the max that they want to
work with. We had a couple of requests to have school age kids go on the
tour. I haven't heard back from my contact at FNAL about this -- I will
update everyone that has asked about this as soon as I know.
Dr. Tom LeCompte will be heading the tour, with the assistance of Fermilab
docents for some of the tour. Dr. LeCompte was kind enough to reprise his
role as tour guide -- he also did the tour for Chicon V -- he's coming back
from CERN early to host the tour. Please let him know when you see him
at Fermilab how much we appreciate this.
The tentative schedule is this:
Depart from the HYATT at 1:30pm (1330) on Friday, 01-Sep-2000. The tour
is scheduled to start at
3:00pm (1500), and go for two hours. We will be back at the Hyatt as
as traffic allows -- remember, this is a Friday Rush Hour in Chicago, and it's
Labor Day Weekend -- so if you need to be somewhere at 6:00pm, your chances
of making it are very slim (read none). We need to be back by 7:30pm, or
we're overtime on the bus..... FNAL is 40+ miles from the Hyatt, as the
If anyone has any questions. please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org

Chicon is in the process of planning several tours, including a tour of the Loop, and
other tours by noted local fans. Watch this space for more info.
