Great EsSkate 2005

Saturday, February 8, 2005
Saturday opened warm and sunny - well warm for Chicago standards anyway. After some initial confusion as to where the group photo would be taken Carl warmed up the crowd by passing out his Mardi Gras beads. I'm sure he made every gal earn them, however I failed to get even one shot of that. Still the day proved very entertaining, the route was fun the pace faster then three years ago and the picnic drier. To protect the guilty, I have very few shots of our night time fun. Save it to say I got in about 4 am.
