Local cycle shop offers bike camping adventures

Bike camping. Is that different from regular camping?

One way to find out is to attend the bike camping open house from 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday, April 12, at the Goodspeed Cycles, 2125 183rd St. in Homewood. 

The cycling business is hosting a Bikepacking 101 clinic and product demonstration that will include free food and beverages and some bike camping giveaways.

Three generations enjoying racquetball tradition

Racquetball is a family tradition for Bob Adams of Homewood. Today three generations play the game, and Bob and his sons meet each week for a friendly game or two at the Homewood-Flossmoor Park District's H-F Racquet & Fitness Center.

Weather helped Coyote Run Golf Course record its longest season in 2017

The Homewood-Flossmoor Park District’s Coyote Run Golf Course in Flossmoor had its longest season on record — 310 days. 

Dave Ward, superintendent of golf, reported to the park board that the unseasonably mild winter allowed the park district to open the course Feb. 17, 2017, the earliest opening day in its history. The season, that officially closed Dec. 24, was the longest golf season at the course.

Park board approves new membership plan at racquet club

The Homewood-Flossmoor Park District voted to change Racquet & Fitness Club membership classifications.
 
At its May 16 meeting, the board agreed to drop the nonresident category. Eileen Rohrer, interim club director, told park commissioners the facility is, for the most part, self-sustaining because it has been drawing members from within and outside the H-F community.
