This just in from the Somonauk Blue Stockings:
"Gentlemen,

I regret to inform you that due to the probability of rain if not thunderstorms throughout the entire afternoon tomorrow, I think it in everyone's best interest to CANCEL the event: Chicago Salmon vs Somonauk Blue Stockings @ Somonauk.
There will be no games tomorrow, Saturday, October 14th.
We can try to meet again in 2018.
Best regards and have an enjoyable fall and winter,
Fish"

Oh No! I'll be thinking of all of you tomorrow when the Prescott Champions play in sunny, dry Arizona.

Sorry we could not meet with our good friends from Chicago and our new friends from Milwaukee. I really wanted to take that at bat before the game I think that is why fish really canceled the game. Oh yea thanks a lot ace for rubbing it in my friend

On Saturday, October 14th, the Chicago Salmon will play the Somonauk Blue Stockings, in one nine inning game, as early as 1:30 pm. The pig roast will be available after the Blue Stockings complete their earlier noon game versus the Milwaukee Juneaus. Our game will be played at Somonauk's Community Park.

Somonauk is southwest of Aurora off of US 34. It is about a two hour drive from my house in Vernon Hills. If you get your directions from Mapquest.com or RandMcnally.com you can use the address to the village hall: 131 S. Depot St., Somonauk, IL 60552.

Once you get to Depot Street off of US 34 you should be about 4 short blocks from the Somonauk Community Park. The park is past the first stop sign but not past the second one as you head south on Depot Street. It is on the right side of the street just before Depot Street, Gage Street and Hoxie Street come together. If you get to the second stop sign you will have missed the park entrance. You will pass the Village Hall and Bank on the way.
