We were notified late Wednesday that the "Illinois Prepare to Survive" Expo scheduled to be held in Grayslake, IL this weekend (November 5th and 6th) has been cancelled! The organizers of the event had advertised the Expo in our October issue and we were registered to be a vendor at the event as part of our Owl Creek Gazette "On the Road" adventures. We were disappointed to learn of the event's cancellation and are passing the information along via our website in an attempt to inform our regular readers and as many other people as possible.
