Oh, That is too bad. I know that you wanted to come. You were the first one to answer Kim's message about having a Freeport meet up. We will have to make it an annual event and then you can join us next year.
There are a few of us in cenral Illinois saying that we need a Corgi Picnic nearer to home. If we can get a group, would you drive to see us? ( Spring 2012?) It would be about 3 hours or so for you.
I live in Champaign, Illinois and will be driving 3 1/2 hours to get to Freeport. I want to see if there is a decent dog park in Bloomington or someplace in that area. Champaign's dog park is out. No established trees and it is right next to the sewage treatment plant. Phew! Urbana has an OK park. I need to check it out to see if it would work, but Bloomington would be a bit closer for more people.
