On Saturday, following our race in Peoria, we will pack up the team camp and head back up river to Henry, Illinois. This has been a historic stop for our teams that head down to the IHSA State Finals, in recent years. When you are on your way to Peoria on Saturday, coming down Interstate 39/51 South, you should exit at IL 18 and head west toward Henry. Upon crossing the large bridge over the Illinois River, look down to your right... this is where we're setting up for the picnic. The immediate street at the base of the bridge is where you'd turn to get to this boat launch. (So remember that, coming home from the race!)
We anticipate the team arriving at the Henry boat launch area around 12:30pm. In the past, there's typically only one or two picnic tables at the most. If you're able to bring camp chairs, portable tables or card tables, we can set up the food on those.
Juniors and Seniors have been asked to bring main dishes to pass. The Brundige Family and Peterson Family are working on potentially getting some meat from Ream's Market to grill. Feel free to contact Jenn Brundige or Donna Peterson for more details.
Sophomores and Freshmen are being asked to share a salad or dessert. Please bring your own beverages. The coaching staff will provide plates, napkins and plastic ware.
If you have any questions, please contact Coach Clarey via email or cell.
