    Default Registration forms

    Registration is now open for the 2019 DePue reunion. Just download the form then print it out. Also attached is the reunion shirt design.

    As you will see on the form we had to move the dinner to the Days Inn in Princeton IL. The VFW building in DePue is being rented out by the EPA as part of the Superfund cleanup process so it is unavailable and there are no other reception hall in DePue with the capacity to hold the crowd. We are sorry for this inconvenience but please don't let this deter you. It will nice though to not have to drive back to the hotel after the reception is over. Just walk to your room and go to bed.

    Default Princeton Illinois

    While LaSalle-Peru is the normal home base for most racers and fans Princeton has a lot to offer. Most things Princeton can be found at princechamber-il.com. However I thought I would add a little to that. Princeton is known for their downtown Main St business districts full of small shops and boutiques. It is one of the few towns that has resisted the chain stores. When looking for places to eat I put together the following list of the better places in Princeton.

    Breakfast

    Big Apple Family Restaurant - 2136 N. Main St. located within walking distance of the Days Inn

    Coffee Cup Diner - located on Main St at the railroad crossing

    Flour House Bakery & Coffee - 950 N Main St fresh baked breakfast items and specialty coffees , popular Princeton spot

    Lunch and Dinner

    Kramers Kitchen - 421 S Main St - homemade specialty sandwiches and all very good - lunch only kramers-kitchen.com

    Spoons - 541 S Main St - spoonsrestaurant.net

    Niel and Shortys - 646 S Main St - the local bar-b-que joint - nielandshortys.com

    The Prime Quater - 250 Backbone Rd East - cook your own steak house or have them do it for you primequarter.com

    Los Ranchitos - 1204 W Peru St the local mexican place

    Pizza Cellar - 402 S Main St - a local favorite for pizza - not the usual pizza

    Alexander Park Tavern - 815 Park Ave West - need your fried chicken fix , this is the place

    There are other places on the chamber website but these are the some of the more popular spots.

    So sad to hear that we have lost another racer. Allen Lang passed away this past week. May he rest in peace.

    Looking at the registration as already received, we need to rally around this reunion & get your registrations submitted. We need firm head counts in order to order the reunion shirts & to provide a head count to our caterer for dinner.

    So, Let's go, sign up.
