Chicago here we come!
Generally when I get to travel for work here at Eagle Optics, I'm getting on a plane to go somewhere south or west of here. While this next trip is taking me south, I won't be getting on a plane when I depart tomorrow morning. My co-worker Kristin and I are heading to the Windy City to do an optics event with Chicago Audubon.
The event, as described on Chicago Audubon's website is as follows:
CHICAGO AUDUBON'S ANNUAL EAGLE OPTICS DAY! SATURDAY, APRIL 5, 2008. 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. North Park Village Nature Center. 5801-D North Pulaski Rd. SAVE THE DATE for the annual visit from the largest independent dealer of high quality binoculars, scopes, and all types of optic equipment which will take place at the North Park Village Nature Center. Experts will be available all day to help answer questions or help you make decisions about binoculars and all other types of optic equipment. Light refreshments will be available and there is plenty of parking. For those who have never attended one of these exciting events and have never been to the Nature Center, it is located in North Park Village. The entrance to North Park Village is at the first stoplight south of the intersection of Pulaski and Peterson. If you need help with directions, just call our office at 773-539-6793. A portion of sales from this important event goes to support the programs of the Chicago Audubon Society. Mark your calendars!
We have been doing this event with the good folks at Chicago Audubon for quite a few years now and it's nice to go back each year and see all the familiar faces. This is also a great opportunity for any optics enthusiasts in the Chicago metro area to get their hands on large assortment of different optics to compare and evaluate. The icing on the cake is that a portion of all the sales is returned to Chicago Audubon to support the good work they do.
