Reminders for Chicago August 9th–Richard Armitage’s Fans Gathering & Film Viewing for OpeRAtion Into the Storm 2014, August 8, 2014 Gratiana Lovelace (Post #17)
Hi RA Fans joining us in Chicago on August 9th for our gathering together for a fun day–capping it off with seeing our favorite exquisitely talented British actor Richard Armitage’s new film, Into the Storm,
We are looking forward to seeing you in Chicago, dashing around town, and enjoying Richard Armitage’s new film, Into the Storm!
Please print out our final event itinerary graphic below (click on the image to enlarge it and save it to your phone or computer first). Our itinerary summary will help you find us at any given time on Saturday if you are delayed in joining us–or if we split up for some of us shopping and some of us site seeing in the afternoon.
For links for the venues mentioned in the graphic above, please refer to this earlier post: “Stormy Sunday: Chicago Itinerary Checklist …” (on August 3rd). But note that we are no longer eating lunch at the Walnut room because they are catering a wedding.
By 12noon (CST) today/Friday, I will also email additional information to individuals who have completed this website’s Contact Form by 11:00am stating that they will be joining us. If you already completed the Contact Form once to indicate you are joining us, you don’t have to do it again. But if you don’t receive my email by 1pm, then please comment below, I will try to resend it to you.
The last official count for those joining us in Chicago is eight–down one due to Obscura developing an illness that prevents her from traveling far afield. She is bummed, but Obscura will be with us in spirit. And I’m sure that we all send her our very best get well wishes. Hugs!
And if you decide at the last minute that you can join us, but you haven’t had a chance to complete this website’s Contact Form to let us know? By all means, please join us! But realize that there will be important information in the email that I send out at 12noon today/Friday. So please try to complete the Contact Form by 11am today/Friday–to give me/Grati time to prep the email.
Please pose any additional questions you have in a comment to this post below–and I/Grati will respond to them in a comment–not via email (which is wonky when I’m on the road). However, I will be on a train heading toward Chicago as of 7:30am Saturday. So please pose your comment questions on the website as soon as possible Friday to insure that I can respond to you and everyone–since others might have a similar question to yours and it makes it easier on me to respond once. But while I’m riding the Amtrak train to Chicago on Saturday–and when I have reception–I will also respond to you.
Finally, however you are getting to Chicago–car, train, bus, plane, or stepping out your door and walking or bicycling–please have a safe journey to us.
The planning of this event was organized by three core individuals–Grati, Sahraobsessed, and Obscura. But all of you had a say in how our event planning evolved through your participation in surveys and your helpful suggestions and other contributions. Thanks!
So one final time–to build your excitement for seeing Richard Armitage in his new film, Into the Storm, its opening weekend–enjoy the video!
