Wine, Cheese, Beer, and Architecture Tour 2008
September 13-14, 2008

Happy spring! Kim Tonry and I drove the Missouri Endurance Rally so the 2008 driving season has started for us. It is time to your calendars for the Wine, Cheese, and Beer Tour 2008!  September 12-14, 2008. Ann and I have finalized most of the plans for the fourth annual CMGC Wine, Cheese, and Beer tour!
    We will gather in Rockford on Friday, September 12th, for dinner and to spend the night.  We reserved a block of 15 rooms at the Quality Inn and Suites.  If you want to join us Friday, please reserve your rooms from the Chicagoland MG Club block.  The number at the hotel is 815 227-1300.  This year’s rate is $85.00 plus tax.  We will be dining at JMK Nippon again.  We will have a great dinner and a fresh start for the weekend.  Please let us know if you plan to join us for Friday dinner because we need to make reservations.
    We will start the tour from the Rockford hotel parking lot Saturday morning.  We will drive through southwest Wisconsin on some roads we have not traveled before and arrive in Spring Green for a two hour tour of Taliesin.  We will be taking the House Tour which includes the interior and exterior of Wright’s private residence.  The cost will be $42 per person if we have 21 or more participants.  We will probably go back to the shed for Saturday dinner.
    We have a block of 25 rooms at The Prairie House in Spring Green Wisconsin for the 13th of September.  This is the hotel we stayed in two years ago and they have a large parking lot for partying.  The room rate is $77.00 per night plus tax.  You can make reservations by calling the hotel at 800 588-2088.  Ask for one of the Chicagoland MG Club rooms.  The block expires August 1, so please reserve your rooms as soon as possible.
    If you are attending this event, please let us know your plans and send your email address as soon as possible.  We will add you to our CMGC tour email list. We will keep you informed as plans continue to develop.
Hope you all can join us!

John and Ann – - 630-852-1731

Please note the August 1st deadline for our group rate at the hotels.  Both hotel room blocks are reserved under the Chicagoland MG Club.  We also need to make reservations for Friday, so let me know if you will be joining us.
