Hello Neighbors!

It’s winter and we haven’t seen you in a bit… so we thought we’d do a fun, family-friendly night out! Where to? How about…  ROLLER DERBY!

What could be more fun than hanging out with your neighbors? Doing so while watching some fun Roller Derby!

We’ve got a bus to take us there, discounted tickets, and kids 17 and under are FREE. That’s right, FREE!

HPWNA Cabin Fever Night Out

HPWNA Cabin Fever Night Out

Chicago RedHots vs. Happy Camper Rollergirls (Ft. Wayne)

$10 bus ride includes 1 drink ticket + $12 derby ticket = $22 per adult
Kids 17 and under are FREE on the bus and at the game!

Game time is 5:30 pm at Cicero Stadium.
Bus will pick us up at 4:30 pm from Brisku’s Bistro (4100 N. Kedzie).
Game ends about 7:15 pm and the bus brings us back to Brisku’s – where we can keep the party going if we wish!

To get tickets, go to: http://chicagoredhotsderby.com/fanbus. You’ll need to add each Adult ticket for the Feb 28th game to your cart separately, then at checkout use the code HPWNAOUTING for our special $22 combo ticket price.

Changes at CAPS


New schedule. New place. New day. New time.

Things are changing for our CAPS beat, Beat 1724

The good news is that our beat meeting now will be held every month, instead of every other month.

The trade-off is the meeting no longer will be at Horner Park. Instead, it will be at the 17th District police station, 4650 N. Pulaski.

The meeting day is moving, to the third Wednesday of each month, and the time is moving to 6:30 p.m.

Finally, our beat meeting will be held in conjunction with Beats 1722 and 1723, the beats adjacent to ours, in a so-called ‘sector’ meeting.The hope is that by holding sector meetings, there will be more shared information and a more coordinated response by the neighborhoods.

These changes are being done on a trial basis, so please participate and let the CAPS coordinators know your opinion.

Next meeting: Wednesday, Jan. 21, 6:30 p.m. at the 17th District Station 4650 N. Pulaski Rd., in the community room.

CAPS stands for Chicago Alternative Policing Strategy
