** RALLY & ST. PATRICK's DAY UPDATE (9:55am - 3/10/16) **
We are encouraging everyone to leave plenty of time for travel this weekend. With the following going on in Chicago this weekend, we believe traffic will be very heavy.
Friday night - Trump rally and protest. This is being held at the UIC Pavilion which is approximately 1.5 miles from the pool.
Friday night - Ted Cruz rally. This is being held in another part of the city but will add to the traffic issue
Friday night - Bulls home game at the United Center
Saturday Morning - The St Patrick's day parade and the dying of the Chicago River.
--> NEW THIS YEAR <--
Per UICrecommendation they have suggested we not allow chairs between the wall and lane one on the short course side of the pool for the safety of all on deck. This has always been a traffic and safety nightmare in the past and we want to make sure this stays clear for our athletes, coaches and officials.
