Update: 2/23, severe weather expected on Friday in Chicago area, but early Saturday morning may still be a problem. If so, I may not make it at all! I will send updates to the blog and Facebook. If anyone has made specific requests and will not make it, please let me know as well!
as of 2/22/2012, but subject to change. I usually try to stick to one ring, but that's not working for me for this show!
*priority & requests are noted
Others are negotiable but all depend upon whether I can get a good spot to shoot from, if you have made a request, please tell your handler so they are not sitting in the corner because if they do that I won't get any shots. Yes, I've had that happen...
