The Chase will start at Beta Nu in Kokomo for breakfast around 8:30 to 9:00 AM. We plan on having biscuits and gravy, bacon, eggs and fried potatoes. Orange juice and Bloody Mary's will also be available. After hanging a Beta Nu for a while we will head north for our second stop to the Lambda Chapter in Peru. We usually arrive there between 10:30 and 11:00 AM. The third stop will be at Delta Nu in Plymouth on our way further north and our approximate arrival time is 1:00 PM. The fourth chapter is Zeta Eta in LaPorte, we are normally there around 3:00 PM. Our final stop on Saturday is at Gamma Lambda in Michigan City. We will check into the hotel then head over to the chapter house around 6:00 that evening. The Baymont Inn is the chosen motel by a group of former Chase folks. But feel free to get your room anywhere you choose. Sunday, we will get up and be on the road back and head south to Beta Beta Wabash (as Brother Buck always points out “The First Electrically Lighted City in the World”) trying to make it there by 11:00 AM. The last stop of the Chapter Chase is when we head over to the city of our origin, Marion. If we are lucky PNP Earl Landrum will again give us the presentation on the courthouse lawn. This is a very moving reading to everyone who has ever witnessed it. We normally spend around an hour or so at each chapter visiting with the local brothers and sweethearts who have supplied us with delicious food at each stop. Of course, beverages are also available. As we have said in the past, it would be great if many brothers from each chapter could join us for at least part of the trip. I guarantee you will enjoy yourself! Even if you can't join the Chapter Chase, please stop by YOUR Chapter House and say hello!
