Chicago Muskie Expo - LURE SWAP

Post by Will Schultz » Tue Jan 05, 2016 9:03 am

This is likely the biggest muskie lure swap on the planet but it's more than that, it's also a food drive for the local food pantry. If you're going to be at the show you owe it to yourself to come to the swap, you'll find everything from 30+ year old gems to the the hot baits of 2015 and everything in-between like trolling motors, rods, reels, electronics, etc. Most importantly please be sure to stop at your local grocery store or one in the Chicago area and pick up some non-perishable food items to donate - you may even win a great prize from one of the fine sponsors!

When: 1/9/2016. Start time is 7PM but beware that MANY will show up VERY early versus the official start time.

Where: Poplar Creek Bowl (aka. Official's Time Out) Address: 2354 W Higgins Rd, Hoffman Estates, IL 60169

What: Join tons of muskie fisherman in a ball-room setting selling/trading/buying fishing stuff of all sorts.

RAFFLE DETAILS: PLEASE remember to bring canned goods to enter our raffle that benefits the Elk Grove Food Pantry in Elk Grove, IL. We will accept cash donations for raffle entries but GREATLY prefer to collect canned goods and other non-perishable food items.

Other Details:
1. Though there is no charge for entry we do greatly appreciate all of your donations for the raffle.
2. You do not need to bring your own table to display your goods, but know if you come much past 7PM, space will be hard to come by.
3. DO NOT BRING YOUR OWN FOOD OR ALCOHOL. The space is given to us for free and no one is charged to attend so please do not try to save $5 in beer by bringing your own. This has happened in the past and could in the future prevent us from having this space (they noted this issue to me) for free. Food and drinks are served at the bar upstairs and downstairs.
4. Bring canned goods. Thanks!
5. Please support our sponsors who donate so graciously!
