    Isn't Gary part of the Chicago Metro Area?

    I used to drive tractor trailer to Chicago all the time. I know where LaPorte is. It is like the very top, last exit before the turnpike?

    I thought that LaPorte was in Indiana. Almost 20 years ago, I was stuck near there for about eight hours after hitting black ice and going into a ditch.

    It sure is Mel.

    And Gary is 45mins away, LaPorte is not anything like Gary.

  14. I might join you. Make a weekend trip with my wife. Looks like about a 5hr ride from Cleveland.

    What city/town are you in to get an idea about hotels in the area.

    So saturday June 6th is the date. Nothing formal or fancy just my backyard yard with dedicated 25 and 50yd setups guaranteed, longer if i can get time to clear more before that. Some grilling and good times to celebrate mine and my sons birthday. There will be NO DRINKING ALCOHOL before shooting and all normal safety standards will be enforced. If youre interested shoot me a PM.
