2011 Alpine Buffett Bus Details

(Better late than never...)

If you haven't already signed up for the bus, it's too late, we're full.

We are meeting the bus in from the usual location. The bus is leaving at 10:30AM sharp, as there is construction and a bridge or two out near Alpine and we need as much time as we can get to get there. The bus will be there to load at 10AM.

Things to bring:

  • Food to pass around.
  • Drinks for yourself (and maybe a couple to share if you're nice).
  • A small cooler of drinks for the bus (it must fit by your feet -- the bus is full!)
  • Food for the bus there and back (we won't be stopping!)
  • A lanyard, lei, or something else to hang your laminate from.
  • A camp chair, if you wish to sit! (you probably will, we'll be there for a while.)

If you have any questions, email us, especially if you haven't heard from Rick and you think you're on the bus.

2011 I Shot Six Holes in my Freezer

(archiving for posterity...)

The Loyal Order of the Caribbean Soul is pleased to announce the...
2011 "I Shot 6 Holes In My Freezer" Party
Saturday, February 19th at the new Sleep Inn & Suites in Madison!
4802 Tradewinds Parkway, Madison, WI 53718
(608) 221-8100 / (800) 4CHOICE
We're having a pool party with music, food, drinks, and a lot of fun. To keep the charity local and environmentally themed, the proceeds will benefit the Henry Vilas Zoo in Madison - one of only a few free and donation-supported zoos in the country!
RSVP on our Facebook Event!
Check back for more information as the date gets closer, but here's what we've got so far:
  • Rooms (regardless of size) are $69 ($79.01 with taxes)
  • There are a number of rooms right along the pool, so we'll be able to use those as hospitality rooms for the party (food, drinks, auction, etc). We'll also have the rooms on the first floor in the corridor closest to the pool area.
  • There's no bar or restaurant at the hotel, so bring your own food and drinks!
  • There is, however, continental breakfast provided.
  • There will be plenty of tropical music to get you in the mood (for what, well, that's up to you).
  • And best of all, the pool area is open 24 hours, so the party won't have to stop!
  • Checkin is 3pm and checkout is 11am.
It's the same night as a Badger vs Gopher Hockey game, so the hotel WILL be packed. Make a reservation early to ensure a spot, and our block closest to the pool releases January 19th. Tell them you're part of the "Madison Parrothead Club".
