Planning for the Boston invasion of Chicago (Sadie Hawkins Race)

Ok so I have been put in charge and I want to get things locked down. If you are coming I need to know this week so we can reserve the van. No more wishy washy. There is room for 10. It may be less but plan on $115 per person for transportation.

So far:
Cara (me)
Rich
Aaron
Chris
Pete
Eric
Stephen

you know I'm in, as is Chris Transplant

[edit] and if need be I can always take my car to open up 2 spaces in the van, although I'd like to avoid this because the trip in the van is going to be fantabulous [/edit]

I have opened my home to any and all Bostonians coming to the race. I should warn though... it will be the floor for most people. I do have plenty of floor though so don't worry about space.
