Wine, Cheese, and Beer Tour
September 16-17, 2006

The Second Annual CMGC Wine, Cheese, and Beer tour is ready for your enjoyment.
We will be meeting at the intersection of US route 20 and Meridian Road (west of Rockford) at 8 AM Saturday morning. The departure time is promptly at 8:30. That is an early start, but we have a schedule to keep. Ann and I are going to drive up Friday and spend the night in Rockford. Several other couples have expressed an interest in also staying in Rockford Friday night. I have reserved a block of rooms for Friday the 15th at the Sweden House in Rockford. (See below for info on reserving a room).
We found some absolutely great MG roads, two brew pubs, a winery where group tours are welcome, and cheese factories. We scheduled the winery tour for Sunday morning, and made lunch reservations for Saturday and Sunday.
I have reserved tickets for a matinee performance of Julius Caesar at the American Players Theater in Spring Green. The tickets are $31.00 per person. I have gotten an extension for the tickets since the July Driveline went out so late. If you want to attend the play, please send me a check by the August Meeting. I will also be at the August Natter N Noggin. We will not be able to guarantee that tickets will be available after August 22.
I have reserved a block of rooms at The Prairie House in Spring Green Wisconsin for the 16th of September. The room rate is 77.00 per night plus 5.5% tax for a total of $81.23. You can make reservations by calling the hotel at 800 588-2088.
The hotel is a one story Motor Court style. Ann and I checked it out while we were in Spring Green. Their parking lot is made for a party. If you have any growler jugs, bring them along as we will be able to fill them up at lunch on Saturday. I am looking forward to a repeat last year’s Saturday evening parking lot party.
I will be keeping an email list of interested people. If you are planning to attend or would like more information, please call or email me so I can keep you informed as plans firm up.
Please send your ticket payments to 4444 Washington Street, Downers Grove, IL 60515.
I have reserved eight rooms at the Sweden House hotel in Rockford. There are four rooms with double beds each at $71 per night plus tax or four rooms with one double bed rooms at $61 plus tax. If you want to join us Friday call the Sweden House by August 15th to reserve your room. Their number is 800 886-4138. The rooms are under my name, so ask for one of John Schroeder’s rooms when you call. The block expires on August 16th. Hope you all can join us!
