South West Michigan
Buchanan Mi. 49107
For Thursday evening, my lovely wife Cindy is planning a crock pot "Ground Beef Goulash" with some bread for dinner. This way there will be something hot for late comers.
For Friday morning, we are cooking an egg mess (scrambled eggs, sausage, potato and cheese).
Friday evening, I am planning to be at the Diesel Diner for dinner at 6:00pm (time bumped back an hour). All you can eat fried fish that night and the pie is awesome!
Saturday 9:00Am breakfast (an RTE) at the Maple Cafe in Edwardsburg Michigan. https://maps.google.com/maps?ie=UTF8&cid=17106893470927829373&q=Maple+Cafe &iwloc=A&gl=US&hl=en
No specific time but would be a great place to ride from. Anyone wanting to join us there, call me ahead of time Friday at 269-268-3496 for specifics.
Saturday evening we will target Wheatberry Restaurant and Tavern at 6:00pm. http://wheatberrytavern.com/
All plans are tentative and subject to change, those that would like to do something else are welcome to do so.
There are a couple of people who may be here to lead rides on Friday and Saturday but other obligations may prevent an all day ride for them.
Edit 07/05/12: I have officially reserved site # 161 at the resort. I will be checking in and setting up at 4:00PM Thursday afternoon.
Being this is my 4th SToc event, this will continue to be informal. I'll try to put a couple rides together but that will depend upon RSVP's to the event. We have some very nice riding here. For example, the Great lakes Circle tour and plenty of other riding to many interesting destinations or just to put more sites into our heads...
! Anyone that's willing to help with the rides, it would be very appreciated!! Also, we are only 20-30 minutes from Lake Michigan where your can take a leisurely ride up the Blue Star Hwy or further to enjoy the coastline and find plenty of fantastic eateries to try!
Friday and Saturday night (depending on feed-back) I'll find us a great place to have dinner!
As an added bonus for this coming event, I should have a few door prizes as well. Longest and shortest distance, tallest or shortest rider...who knows but something fun!
I've spoken to the owners of the camp ground and they are willing to bend the "# of tents per site" rules for us to help keep the cost down, so long as we don't go nuts with it. If there are enough folks that would rather Hotel/Motel it I'll see what I can do in that respect as well. There are any number of them with in 20 +/- miles or so of the camp grounds.
It will be important to keep in mind that I'm leaving reservations up to you. If you are staying @ the resort, Mention that you are with the ST-Owners group and they will do their best to group us together!! Hopefully your sites will be close by as I requested from the Camp Ground but there are no Guarantees if the Grounds begin to fill up... Also, regarding hotel/motel accommodations, reservation here will also be up to you but I'll try to reserve a block of rooms if I can. Again, establishing a base hotel/motel can be done and gladly so but will depend on the # of requests for that sort of accommodations.
Anyhoo, all the feed back I can get the better.
Last year was a great time and this year should be even better. (Maybe I'll even remember to aquire the ST-Owners banner for us to sign this time. LOL!)
So...there it is, plan your calander and come join us!
