    Stanfest Boat Tour, Who's coming

    Some people have previously expressed an interest in the Chicago Architecture Boat Tour. Cost is $30 and reservations are suggested. Tour takes 1.5 hours plus check-in time. There a quite a few tours a day.

    Link: http://www.architecture.org/tour_view.aspx?TourID=8

    Anyways I was wondering if people actually wanted to do this and if so it would probably be a good idea to make a reservation. I wouldn't want us to arrive at the dock and find out its sold out or there is only room for half of us. So...if your interested note that, if not note that as well. Of course we could always split up if some people are interested and others are not.

    I've attached a poll to let one indicate their level of interest.

    I will not be attending the boat tour. Been there, done that.

    Therefore, I can take others on a different tour.
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    I've done the boat tour as well. BTW I am also sort of on the fence about coming due to parental health issues.

    While the Chicago River Architectural Boat Tour sort of is on my list of things to do before I die, I do live here and plan on living here the rest of my life, so I'm pretty sure the opportunity will come up again. Thus, I can go either way. If a lot of people really want to do the boat tour...I'm game. If people don't want to do it, that's fine, and I'd rather the group stick together and do something else then.
