Blagojevich may be in prison before this decision gets made with all the trouble he is in.

At least Gov Ryan will have some company.

I hope it doesn't close, as I may be able to attend after all!

Moraine View not in the list to remain open

From the Pantagraph on Nov 22, 2008 Pantagraph.com | News | Just four state parks receive reprieve

"The parks that will remain open are: Gebhard Woods; Kickapoo; Channahon Parkway; and Hennepin Canal Parkway."

Moraine View is not one of the 4 Illinois state parks that will receive funding to remain open.

You have done such a wonderful job with this rally and I hope it will continue. Caryn and I have really enjoyed the event and we are willing to travel any reasonable distance even northern Wisconsin. The Governor may be in prison by that time playing cards with Governor Ryan so things may not actually change. In any event it seems desireable to find a nice private park with full hook-ups available.
Thanks for all of your effort and hope everyone has a nice Thanksgiving.
Allen & Caryn

Potato Creek State Park near South Bend.

Probably a little far for our Iowa friends, though.

hmmm... Railsplitter maybe? (or was it New Salem? I don't remember.)

I do have an alternative in mind in the same general area of Moraine. I'll do some preliminary planning late next month. Thanks for everyone passing on ideas and keeping us up to date on the Illinois funding issue.

Just heard on the news this AM. The closures are in fact, as of this moment happening. Today is the last day Moraine and the others slated for closing will be open.

Unless something happens between now and March/April, I'm not sure Moraine will be possible.

Such a shame. I feel sorry for the folks who work at this park. They do a nice job.

Yea, he's finished, but at this point, I'm not sure, even him going to jail is going to immediately open up Moraine View. By the time they get to it, we could all very well be into the full swing planning stages.

What a shame. I hope they throw the book at him.....

Hope ... maybe for a 2009 Moraine View Rally?

Maybe there's hope. However, the current Illinois governor has not resigned. Pat Quinn is the current Lt. Governor.

From today's Pantagraph newspaper headline: Quinn would reopen closed sites and parks as Governor Pantagraph.com | News | Quinn would reopen closed sites and parks as governor

Well, either Rob's nemesis' daughter Lisa had better get to the State Supreme court and get Robbie out, or the legislator had best start impeachment proceedings now, cause impeachment can last several months, and plans for this rally really start in earnest in a month or two......

Have no fear folks. We will work towards an alternate site for June. Maybe we will call this rally, the Moraine View in Exile rally. We'll see. First things first though is to deal with the holidays. Then we'll get busy getting June firmed up. Thanks everyone for the updates!
