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…

I Shot Six Holes In My Freezer 2015 - This Weekend!

In case anybody doesn't know how the six holes got in the freezer..

Things to remember for Saturday (review the full info: http://www.locs-buffett.org/p/i-shot-six-holes-in-my-freezer-2015.html):

  • Bring your own drinks and a dish to pass (no restaurant or bar at the hotel!)
  • Bring donations for the Humane Society of Rock County (cash or items from their Wish List)
  • Bring small bills for jello shots, suck-n-blows, shot-skis and other fun!  (Benefitting Humane Society.)
  • The party officially starts with Peter playing at 4.  It unofficially starts whenever you get there!
  • Bring a radio to tune in to Rick's transmitter for tunes before and after Peter is playing!
  • There will be games and other tom-foolery around the pool.

As of right now the hotel has a few rooms available, it was sold out earlier, I know at least one member who may have an extra room, and they have a cancellation policy that lets you cancel up to noon on the day of arrival, so there will likely be last minute rooms on Friday night or Saturday!
