Spring Chicken Tour
Lake Geneva, WI
Sunday, May 17, 2009

Well, it is time for that first tour of the new driving season. I thought that I would give the Lake Geneva area another go. This year we will have an all new driving location (possibly the lower Kettle Moraine, still looking at the options).
It will be the same format as last year. We start off by meeting at Bill Reece’s cottage in Lake Geneva in the morning. From there we will take a rustic road tour for approximately one (1) hour through scenic southern Wisconsin.
When the tour is over, we’ll head back to Bill’s for a grilled chicken extravaganza!!! We’ll have a nice fire going in the pit (but I have confirmation of great weather this day so we may not need the fire). Last year we had 15 cars join us for the Lake Geneva tour, this year let’s try for even more!
There will be more details to follow in the April edition of Driveline. Please if you would send me an email if you plan on attending (or if you have any questions).
Looking forward to another great “Chicken Run”,
