    New Glarus 2015

    Yes, it's mid-October, but it is time to plan for the annual New Glarus gathering during the Season of Poor Riding. Yes, it's in January, In Wisconsin, in Winter. Dates of January 30,31,Feb 1, at the Chalet Landhaus in New Glarus. All the usual plans are in effect, but the knitting ladies will be there the preceding week. There are things to do, places to go and see, food to eat, beer and wine to drink. It is for those of us who suffer from PMS (parked motorcycle syndrome) but who also miss the company and camaraderie of fellow riders. There is a fireplace in the lobby, a heated indoor pool and hot tub, food is available, and other things to do.

    So if you need a small weekend get-away, give this a try.

    I'm going to try and make it, maybe even bring my wife.

    I'm still planning on coming and it looks like Tina's chemo schedule will work out so that she can come as well.

    F.y.i.

    Just recently made our reservation and found that the Landhaus has a winter promotion. Friday and Saturday night lodging for $219.00 for two, and a $40.00 dinner voucher good at the Chalet Landhaus Retaurant or New Glarus Hotel Restaurant, which makes for a very reasonable $$ weekend getaway. Looking forward to seeing everyone!

    Looking forward to seeing everyone there...it's been a few years since I've been back to New Glarus.

    We just need Viki and CJack to teach us how to polka...

    Tom VH and I will be there as well.

    A group of us have rented a house a few blocks down from the Landhaus. We've done this before.
    What's the plan for the weekend?

    If the weather is decent, I wouldn't mind going to Sauk Prairie to watch the eagles. (which is not too far from Wollersheim Winery)

    Looking forward to spending some time with you all.

    Would that be the Shoe Box, in Cross Plains? I was just there last weekend. OMG!

    Well, it appears that we have about 30 folks who say they'll be in attendance for this annual gathering. So far the plan is to gather around the Chalet during the afternoon, meet and greet, then about 7-ish walk up to the Hotel New Glarus for dinner. After that is whatever people want to do. Saturday, after breakfast, is open to suggestions. The New Glarus brewery is just up the road, Wollersheim Winery is having their port wine release, those who want to check out Black Earth, or Mt. Horeb, wander through New Glarus, or whatever tickles your fancy. No real plans for Saturday dinner yet, although there is the pizza place right behind the Chalet that also has craft beers available. I'm approaching this as kinda like a rally, you show up, we hang out and socialize, or whatever you want to do. No real timetable. However, if we all will be going to dinner on Friday evening, then I should let the Hotel New Glarus know in advance how many folks are coming.
