Third 2022 Montrose Beach Potluck & Volleyball of the Season!
July 24 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm GMT-0500
This is a continuation of the very successful events from the past 12 summers!
• Montrose Beach on Lake Michigan (PLEASE see the map on the event page or here: [chicagoveg.com/potluck.htm](https://www.chicagoveg.com/potluck.htm)) We will meet at a grass area SOUTH of the beach house – located on the east side N. Simmons Drive, between Wilson and Montrose. If you see the big antenna and/or the big white building, just go a little SOUTH and you will find us!
• If you have difficulties to find us using the map on the event page, you can set your GPS to this coordinates: 41.9639722,-87.6373554,17 or use this [google map link](https://www.google.com/maps/place/41%C2%B057'50.3%22N+87%C2%B038'06.6%22Wfirstname.lastname@example.org,-87.6351667,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0xbd5cc2d702c841cc!8m2!3d41.9639722!4d-87.6351667) where the red marker shows our location.
• Look for the “ChicagoVeg” sign
• Noon – 1:30 PM – Arrive, socialize, frisbee, then introductions and start eating (around 12:30PM)
• About 1:30PM – Volleyball begins!
• Driving: There is a lot of free parking by Montrose Beach, however some of the closer parking may fill up quickly, which is one of the reasons to arrive before noon! 🙂
• Public transportation: Several CTA buses stop at Montrose Beach, although it may be a bit of a walk to the picnic (< 1 mile). For more info: [rtachicago.org/plan-your-trip](https://www.rtachicago.org/plan-your-trip)
• Bike: Riding your bike is a good option. Remember, you can usually bring bikes on Chicagoland public transportation.
