Great venue in a new city

This is shaping up to a be a great small Drupal event that should allow all attendees to make new connections in the Drupal community, learn some new tricks, and share what they know. It's a great opportunity to get out of the big city for a day or two and help build a new Drupal event in the greater Chicago area.

We're really looking forward to hosting everybody and pulling off a great first annual DrupalCamp Fox Valley!
