When: July 26th, 2008

Where/Address: West Beach
N County Line Road
Portage, IN
46368
Map1
Map2 (My house to the Dunes)

Time: 11 am- Whenever

Fee: Parking = $6
Food = Varies (I'm bringing $20)
Also I suggest bringing your own too ^^
Website

My number is (630) 290-1536..feel free to call me for more info.

Q&A:

1.) Will the water be icky?

No, the water is actually pretty refreshing and not really dirty. I've been to the dunes 5 times and the water hasn't really been dirty to me. ^^

2.) As for food..do you think BBQ is ok?

I believe its ok to BBQ/bring a BBQ pit..I think if you guys want to bring a BBQ pit, let me know...I might bring some veggie burgers and hot dogs. ^^
Just keep a note that it might not be a good idea because of the sand + wind equal sand on the pit...

3.) Should cosplay be acceptable?

Its up to the person if they want to, but keep a note, we will be near the water and LOTS and LOTS of Sand!!!! I was thinking that we should all bring our wigs and wear it for a couple of picture shots (like cosplayers playing beach ball with there wigs or random battle at the beach) ^^.
Reasonable size weapons would be good for the random battle.

^^

So I was thinking about stuff for the dunes, and asking myself questions...

1.) Will the water be icky?

No, the water is actually pretty refreshing and not really dirty. I've been to the dunes 5 times and the water hasn't really been dirty to me. ^^

2.) As for food..do you think BBQ is ok?

I believe its ok to BBQ/bring a BBQ pit..I think if you guys want to bring a BBQ pit, let me know...I might bring some veggie burgers and hot dogs. ^^

3.) Should cosplay be acceptable?

I have plenty of money, true that I have issue with transportation....

Well, once I start school it will be easier, I get free CTA so I can practically go anyway around Chicago...like Acen! Blue line goes right to it...but then I have to carry all my cosplays and luggage with me T_T
