    New Glarus 2012

    OK, boys-n-girls, it's time to begin thinking about things to do during the season-of-poor-riding. It is with this in mind that we announce the 2012 New Glarus Gathering, January 27, 28, 29. As usual the center of festivities will be the Chalet Landhaus in New Glarus, WI. For those who have experienced the event previously, it is anticipated to be as usual. For those new to this event, here's the deal - arrive sometime Friday and socialize for a while, whether in the lobby or in the hot tub. Later we stroll a couple blocks to the Hotel New Glarus for dinner, POLKAS, and beer. Once we've had enough of those, feel free to wander the town for more excitement, or head back to the Chalet to socialize some more.

    Saturday starts with breakfast, after which the day is open to whatever your heart fancies. Some have opted to tour the New Glarus brewery, or gone in search of cheese, wine, mustard (the Mustard Museum in Middleton), or shopping in suchplaces as the Duluth Trading Company store in Mt. Horeb. Again, nothing definite, other than gather for dinner later that evening.

    Sunday is a typical Sunday, with breakfast, good-byes, and travel home.

    It is hoped we see some new faces this year, along witha lot of the familiar ones. Bring a smile, good attitude, maybe some stuff to share, and your swimsuit for the hot tub and pool. Due to the time of year and expected weather, it is anticipated that there will not be any motorcycles making the trip.

    Hoping to see you there!

    Sounds nice, but ...

    I'll be on the last days of a month in Hawaii. I'll try to think of all you having winter fun and hope you have decent weather and lots of cameradery.

    I will participate as well. Not so sure about my not-so-imaginary-wife Lisa. She loves the event but is going on a dive trip that returns to O'hare late that friday evening. At the very worst, I would pick her up at the airport and arrive just in time for the late-night shenanigans.

    See you all there.

    Made my reservation today. The fireplace and hot tub are both operational and are expected to remain so.

    Another good place, back by where the old Mustard Museum was, is the Grumpy Troll. Probably not nearly as busy in winter as in the summer.
