Certainly try the lodging link from the web page. http://www.internationalcycling.com/hosting.shtml
Send them an email requesting help. If there isn't a family available immediately, sometimes they can hook you up with a local college or university for some quality dorm life. Perhaps Marquette U., Milwaukee School of Engineering, UW-Milwaukee, Carrol College in Waukesha, or other in the Chicago area. I remember staying several nights in a dorm in Oshkosh many years ago. Often, the announcers at the races will announce to the crowd, mid-series, that they are looking for host families also, so never give up hope.
Keep us posted on how it's going
maybe we can pull some strings if you're still stuck.
Looking forward to having you up here!!
(Don't forget to pack a winter hat ... just in case the wind shifts off Lake Michigan. It can get pretty chilly up here (low 50's) even in mid July!
