Tally Ho Rally
Sunday, August 20, 2017
The Rally start and end point is to be determined although the rally length is usually less than 75 miles. The rally route is designed to provide a fun experience, with scenic and very low traffic MG roads, taking you past open fields, horse pastures, some amazing homes, and lovely gardens and landscaping. Your rally car is an MG or any other car you have running. Equipment needed is a car, pencil, watch, and navigator.
Registration is at 11:00 am, drivers meeting at 11:30 am, and the first car will be starting at 12:00 noon.
Please put this event on your calendar. Look forward to seeing you.

Wine Cheese Beer Tour
September 22-23-24, 2017
The 2017 WCBT will begin at the La Qunita Hotel in Rockford on Friday evening the 22nd. Please look to be there by 5PM. We will travel for dinner at the JMK Nippon Restaurant which has served us very well in past WCBTs. Sheik Raoul will preside with the "Prayer for the Road".
Saturday morning we will take a leisurely drive thru the southern WI country side - the WCBT has always been a slower pace casual driving event. The WCBT visits breweries and wineries - lunch will be at the Viking Brew Pub in Stoughton, WI. Saturday evening we will be at the Spring Green Motel in Spring Green WI and will dine that night at the Shed.
Sunday our casual drive continues with our end point in New Glarus. Although lunch is not yet finalize we are thinking the Swiss restaurant that has done such a great job in the past will fit the bill.
Our earlier communiques had suggested early registration with the hotels. Although the La Quinta is still available the Spring Green Motel less expensive rooms are taken - we have 21 cars already! Rooms are available but at a higher rate. We will look to provide some alternative motels for you if you have not yet registered. Lawn chairs are
highly recommended as there will be social gatherings both Friday and Saturday nights.
