Wisconsin Riveside Resort
WI STOC 7
When: Sept. 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th, 2013
Where: Spring Green,WI
Plans are starting to be formed for WiSTOC 7. It will be held the weekend after Labor Day in September 2013. Starting on Thursday the 5th and wrapping up on Sunday the 8th. We will be staying at the Wisconson Riverside Resort this year. Sites 1,2,3 and 4 will be reserved for this event. They are the first 4 sites on the right side as you enter the tenting area at the end of the paved section. Just go directly to the sites and set up starting on site 1. Rich and I will again plan some routes for Friday and Saturday.
I can recommend the Wisconsin Riverside Resort for at least one meal while in town.
Rich and his family and myself enjoy putting on this event.
More to be added as feedback is received.
Tentative Schedule of Events:
Thursday arrival for those who want.
Friday rides will be up to those who make it early. May route a nice easy one if enough people want.
Reservations are set for sites #1,2,3 and 4. Thursday night start and, leave on Sunday. NO NEED to do anything on your part except show up. Just drive right to the site, do not stop at the office as I will be collecting the money to give to them on Sunday. $8 per night per person.
For those wishing to motel it, you will need to make reservations as soon as you can. The Spring Green Motel is the closest, there are others in the area. Go here to see others.
