September Happy Hour - BYO at Baxter Park!

This month's Happy Hour is coming up on Friday September 11th!  We'll be meeting for a pot-luck near Michael's tree in Baxter Park (777 Englehart Dr, Madison), the tree is on the West end of the park, near the intersection of Englehart Dr and Ward Ct.  Bring your own food and drink (and chair), and little extra to share!

We'll be meeting around 5:30, if we can get off out of work early (don't worry if you can't come until a bit later)!

When the light and temperature fade from the park, we'll retire to Gwen's house (right around the corner) for campfire and s'mores!  Send us a message to locsbuffett@gmail.com if you need Gwen's address and directions!

In case of rain, Gwen reports she has a good screen porch and living room that she'll trust us in!

All members and prospective members are welcome!

2015 Alpine Bus Information

THE BUS LOADS AT 10:00 A.M. AT THE SHOPKO, MONONA (SOUTH TOWN) PARKING LOT, AT 10:00 AM.  AT 10:00 A.M. WE WILL PACK OUR THINGS UNDER THE BUS AND PICK OUR SEATS, AT 10:00 A.M.  SATURDAY, 8/22, 10AM, SHOPKO PARKING LOT.

 

Bring your food item to share (Jell-O shots and the like are considered food items) for the tail gating.  We furnish no beverages so bring your own.  Large coolers will go under the bus.  You may take a small one on the bus for the ~90 minute drive.

 

Bring substance food for yourselves for lunch, dinner and the way home.  Don’t expect to be fed off the snack tables.  Julie is not going this year so if anyone has a good Jerk Chicken recipe, feel free to bring it. (I really like Jerk Chicken).  We typically have way more snack things like chips and deserts then substance foods on the table, so if you feel inclined to bring more real food, please do… but keep it simple.  Finger food is best.  There will be paper plates and plastic forks… I believe.

 

There has been no plans made to do any cooking there, so don’t bring raw meet unless that’s what you intend to share.  Don’t bring a full watermelon and expect everyone to cut their own piece.

 

THE BUS LOADS AT 10:00 A.M. AT THE SHOPKO, MONONA PARKING LOT, AT 10:00 AM.  DON’T BE LATE.

 

THE BUS LEAVES AT 10:30 A.M. FROM THE SHOPKO, MONONA PARKING LOT, AT 10:30 AM… AND IT WILL LEAVE WITHOUT YOU IF YOU ARE NOT THERE… BELIEVE ME…BEEN THERE… DROVE MYSELF.


Don’t show up at 10:30 and want to start loading your stuff, THE BUS LEAVES AT 10:30 A.M.

 

Policy is that everyone riding the bus is to have a ticket.  The gate people have stepped on the bus and ask everyone to show their tickets… butt not for the last 4 years or so.  Those of you who will be receiving Club Pavilion tickets will get them on the bus.

 

Positive vibes… Sun, pleasant temperatures, whip cream swimming suits, etc.

 

Oh ya, one more thing

 

THE BUS LEAVES AT 10:30 A.M. FROM THE SHOPKO, MONONA PARKING LOT, AT 10:30 AM…
