What time would I need to arrive by to get registered and set before things get going? Also, what is the parking situation? Is it easy to find spots close to the store or will I need to walk a ways? Meters? Garage? If I can make it j will be driving down that morning and want to make sure I allow enough time to get there. I'm about an hour and a half NW of O'Hare.

Thanks!


Parking is not bad in that neighborhood by Chicago standards. But that's all relative. By that I mean you can find parking pretty much right out front that is metered, but I wouldn't suggest that. There is neighborhood parking all around that area, and you can park for free usually no more than a few blocks away. I would allow 10-15 min for parking just to be safe.

As far as when registration begins - we'd have to ask Jonny to be sure. My guess is 11am is the start time, and Registration will begin around 10. I usually try and get there at 10, that way I can relax and chat with everyone. I would say to not arrive any later than 10:30. We want to start at 11 sharp.

Thanks guys. That's pretty much what I figured but just wanted to be sure.

Not 100% yet if I will be there but trying my best to make it work. If I come hopefully I can get some more people from WI to come with too.

I'm posting this to tell people to give themselves extra time to get into the city and to warn them that lake shore drive, parts of I-55 and Roosevelt and Columbus drive will be closed due to The NATO SUMMIT. Not really a good weekend to have anything in Chicago but nothing we can do about that now.

Just a warning to all who plan on coming in.
Plz double check directions and look online for road closures. I hope we can still have a good turnout.

I usually take Lake Shore, but I think there was a way to get there by staying on the Interstate and backtracking south to the store 2 or 3 miles. Now if Ic an remember it.

All the NATO stuff will be downtown, and the store is on the north side of the city. So I don't think it will effect anything other than some street/highway closures. Make sure to check the day of, before you leave, for street closures.

My advice for anyone is to take 90/94 to the North Avenue exit


Take exit 48B for North Ave
0.2 mi
Turn left onto North Ave
0.2 mi
Turn right onto N Ashland Ave
4.0 mi
Turn right onto W Lawrence Ave
0.5 mi
Take the 3rd left onto N Broadway St
Continue to follow North Broadway Street
Destination will be on the left

0.9 mi

5550 N Broadway
Chicago, IL 60640


I live right by this exit, and this is essentially the route I take. It takes 20 minutes without traffic. Allow extra time on this day.

ANNOUNCEMENT:

Chicago TILE WARS Regional championship 2012 - will be after the Swiss Rounds of the Chicago SWM Regional. Those not in the top four, and anyone else wanting to attend are welcome! It will begin at approximately 5:00pm

Sorry top 4, you'll have to sit this one out. We were going to do it after it all finished, but I think that would hurt attendance too greatly. So I really hope everyone brings a TILE WARS squad to play, and if you make the top 4 you can give it to a friend to play. Let's keep the gaming going!

I will have TILES available for use.

By the way - this is for people coming from/through the south side of Chicago. IE - Michigan, Indiana, anywhere south in IL.

If you are coming from the north or West (IE Wisconsin) then take the normal route. You will not be affected.

I will be the judge if we need one. If anyone is running late or gets lost call me or the store. Store would be better but just throwing my number out there just in case.
