The venue IS accessible from Chicago via Public Transportation and a 12 min walk. So those of you from the city that can't normally race R/C due to a lack of real car, you can take the Metra out.

Google map of the Metra line (http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&source=s_d&saddr=41.886049,-87.636051&daddr=41.892714,-87.906866&hl=en&geocode=%3BFWo7fwIdzqXC-g&mra=dme&mrcr=0&mrsp=0&sz=14&dirflg=r&ttype=arr&date=10%2F17%2F10&time=1:30pm&noexp=0&noal=0&sort=&sll=41.885729,-87.661457&sspn=0.038659,0.104284&ie=UTF8&t=h&z=14&start=0)


And the street view (http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=41.892714,-87.906866&sll=41.885983,-87.904959&sspn=0.009665,0.026071&ie=UTF8&ll=41.892716,-87.907048&spn=0,0.003259&t=h&z=19&layer=c&cbll=41.892717,-87.90717&panoid=ExSkDgvMUozZeOppulHdPA&cbp=12,113.16,,0,4.63) that shows the building on the right and the spot in the fence that has an access way. If you put in 1200 lind ave it takes you around but there is opening in the fence if you are walking.
