2018 Chicagoland Area Event Guide

It's been a while since we had a proper event listing so I thought I'd start one now that meets are getting underway. Mods: I think this should get stickied.

As before:
  • please follow the formatting style
  • copy over the entire list when you've added events so that the newest post is the most current, updated list. Quoting the post will copy all the hyperlink markup that a simple copy-paste won't.
  • Hyperlinks to event details are helpful, but not absolutely necessary.

I'm including a few nearby events that might be of interest to fellow enthusiasts, even if they are out-of-state.

A quick heads-up for people in the area: the last Supercar Saturday of the year is this weekend and the British car union show is the Sunday the following week.
