      The Chicagoland Mustang Club, Chicago's premier Mustang Club, spreading across all of Chicago and its suburbs, began in September 2004 as a club for like-minded Mustang enthusiasts. With the area lacking a Mustang club that was not generational or model-specific, the Chicagoland Mustang Club, (CMC) opened to bring together Mustang owners of all generations and model ownership.

      CMC has since grown from one person to well over 2,000 members and touts sponsorships from leading Mustang High Performance shops and Mustang parts manufacturers. We host meet-and-greet days at local restaurants around Chicago, as well as club days at local drag strips. Past events have included dyno days, HUGE car shows, sunset cruises downtown and cruises to Starved Rock State Park. The Chicagoland Mustang Club also gives back to the community, hosting fundraisers for families in need, Children's Memorial Hospital, and participating in Toys for Tots.

      CMC Season Closer: Cruise to Lake Geneva Sunday 10/05/2014

      Please note, the starting location has changed!!

      9:00am Meet at Home Depot (and the Starbucks nearby) for Coffee.
      2731 Hartigan Rd
      Ingleside, IL 60041

      10:00 Depart Home Depot for Lake Geneva Cruise. We chose a route that allows for a nice caravan most of the way followed up with a cruise around Lake Geneva wrapping up with Snake Rd.

      Route - http://goo.gl/vWJjFt (Yes the map should start at Home Depot just off route 12 instead of Victor Ford...)

      11:30 Arrive in Lake Geneva, WI
      Destination as shown on route will be the Cove/Sprechers pub - http://www.sprecherspub.com/lakegeneva/
      There should be enough parking for us at the Cove if not the streets near by provide pay parking (electronic - quarters, cash, or card). I have highlighted the Cove Parking in yellow and pay parking in Red.


      12:30 Lunch at Sprechers Pub - We will have our own room & will order from the regular menu. It is good food, great root beer, and fantastic cream soda.

      The rest of the day is open. There are plenty of shops, boat tours, and for those that like to hike there is a walking path that tours you through some of the massive estates along Lake Geneva. For those that want to get some late season runs in Great Lakes Dragway/Union Grove is 35 minutes East of Lake Geneva.

      Last event of the year! Do not miss! RAIN OR SHINE

      Come celebrate the Chicagoland Mustang Club's 10th ANNIVERSARY! The Season Opener will again be held in the Cozzi Corner/Advance Auto parking lot in Downers Grove (same location as last year). Bring your Mustangs, bring your family/friends, and pack TOYS to donate! This will be an event you do NOT want to miss.

      As in the past, the biggest part of this event is the 6th Annual CMC TOY DRIVE to benefit the kids at Advocate Hope Children's Hospital of Oak Lawn. If you know CMC, you know that we are all about charity and helping out those less fortunate than us. The Chicagoland Mustang Club wants to bring a smile to the faces of kids that could really use something to smile about. Everyone who brings a NEW TOY to donate will be entered into a drawing to receive prizes donated by our sponsors and other companies we have found looking to help. When you first pull into the lot a section coordinator will show you where to park and help guide you into your space. Once complete, you can grab your donations and head over to the tent we will have setup to drop off your toys and get your FREE tickets to the raffle.

      This year we plan to fill a pack of Mustangs, from top to bottom, and deliver all of the toys collected at the opener to Advocate Hope Children's Hospital of Oak Lawn the day after the event. We will setup a cruise thread to load up and bring toys over to the hospital in typical CMC fashion! More details to follow. This is a great way for us to give back to our community. Please read their DonationGuidelines.pdf by clicking the link. It is important, as they can only accept NEW TOYS and have rules on what they can take as a donation (i.e. no stuffed animals, etc). Thanks in advance! As always, we hope to make an even larger donation this year thanks to all of the wonderful contributions from our members and staff.
