WHEN: September 29 & 30 2007
Saturday or Sunday? Why not both? Plan to join us for our first CMMC overnight event. Staying overnight is of course optional. We have a great set of events planned for each day that can be experienced individually or as a package.
Saturday’s events start with a scenic and very twisty drive out to Galena and the Chestnut Mountain Resort. There we’ll enjoy lunch overlooking the Mississippi River and conclude with some seat time sledding down the 2,050 ft. “terrain-tailored track to the banks of the Mississippi.”
We have optional organized events after leaving Chestnut Mountain. If you still have some energy left there are more great roads to drive or explore historic downtown Galena. Those who are staying overnight may want to have dinner together and enjoy the evening in downtown Galena. There are several great places to eat in Galena!
We have something special planned for those staying till Sunday. This is the day of our grand tour on some spectacular roads in the Galena area.
If you are interested in staying overnight, please make your reservations NOW. Rooms fill up quickly. Two motels with rooms available (and not requiring a two-night stay) are the Grant Hills Motel and The View Motel. Great prices are available at these two motels! There may be other rooms available – check out the Galena Travel Information and www.galena.org to book rooms. Many of the B&B’s have two night minimum, but if you call the week of Sept 24th you may find one night deals.
This is a two-day event, but designed to allow anyone that can only make it one day to still enjoy some great roads and a great time.
We will meet and depart from Winnebago (just west of Rockford) Saturday morning. Starting here will make it convenient for everyone from Chicago, Rockford and Wisconsin to join us.
Important times to note;
Sat 10am meet at McDonalds in the rear parking lot, west of Rockford at Route 20 and Winnebago road. We will leave promptly at 10:30am.
FYI, there is no pit stop on the leg from Rockford to Chestnut Resort. Why you ask? Because we are driving back roads with no services, so get the small coffee.
Sat 12:30pm Group Lunch and slide at Chestnut Mountain Resort.
Sat 4pm group photo at The Long Hollow Tower.
Sat 5pm optional late afternoon run from group photo.
Sunday September 30th, 1pm meet at Galena Recreation Park
This event is open to ALL MINIs. Please reply below what day/s and event/s you plan to attend to allow us to prepare the best possible event for YOU!
