Hi Gang. Here is our tentative agenda for the gathering:

Thursday: Meet & Greet time upon arrival. Dinner at local restaurant.

Afterward back to Hotel for fun around the awesome pool.       


Friday Morning: Breakfast. We will be given meal tickets for the restaurant.  

Afterward A cruise, (around 45 mi.) to Gilmore Car Museum .


On the way back we have planned a stop for lunch at Sam's Joint. A really cool restaurant.

              Afternoon: Free time. Shopping near by for ladies. Naps fer ole farts like me.

              
Dinner plans are  pizza or carry in at the beach or pool.      

              Evening: Weather permitting we would like to take a sunset cruise  ( 9 mi.) to Holland State Park. Also may I mention there is a go-kart track (just for you Pat H.) just down the street. Next pool time and party.    


Saturday Morning:  Breakfast. We will be given meal tickets again for the restaurant.

       
Afterward cruise to Grand Haven. Its a nice cruise (around 25 mi.) and has a really cool beach.

         Lunch in Grand Haven at The Bil-mar on the Lake Michigan shore. Reservations are for 12:00.

          Afternoon: DUNE RIDE!!  Saugatuck Duneride

      Dinner: We have 6:00 reservations at  Boatwerks Restaurant
     

   
        Sunday: Breakfast

We were thinking that as most of you will be heading south we would stop by Saugatuck (11 mi. south). Many cool shops and time permitting go to Oval Beach. Another great place for pics.  Afterward hugs, kisses (just fer you Tux), and farewell's.


Our goal is to not be on a real tight schedule. The best times Patty and I have had in the past is just sitting around gabbin and jokin (just for you Jani, and try and keep it clean!!).WinkRolling On The Floor LaughingConfused
Confused
So here it is my friends. Realize this is subject to change, and always open for suggestion. And if you would please say a prayer for warm dry weather.

 Looking forward to being together again, Hug" T & P"

Mr T

That sounds real good. I was out on my GPS unit birds eye view and the State Park might be a great place for a group photo with the light house in the backround. Will bring my camera The Gilmore museum has a old gas station the we might be another neat place for a group shot.

I have got in touch with several vendors and should have some goodeees for everyone.
 
HUMMMMM HUMMMM nice weather nice weather  Thats the best I can do.
 
If any one is coming from the south on US 31 on Sat morning about 8:00am and would like to meet us at 31 & 20 for the rest of the trip up let us know.

I know this may disappoint some of you, but due to age and number of injuries we decided to X the Limbo this year. Instead we have come up with a new idea................... How's about a rousing Saturday nite Hokie-Pokie!! Wacko

Whatca think?? This was Patty's idea by the way. I can't take credit. Shocked

Hoky Pokey seems hokey to me.  Is it possible to do the dune ride on sat??  I will be coming in on Fri and would hate to miss it.  If not that will still be ok.  I am debating to take the insolent one (Spence) with me or rent a kennel for him. My dog likes to have fun too, never complains and eats cheap.LOL

We are thinking about switching the cruise to Grand Haven to the morning, and dune ride in the afternoon. That way you could make it Dennis, and good chance it will be warmer later in the day.

Good choice for old folks like me. It takes a while for the Motrin to kick in.
 
I will see you there.

Mr. T and Ms. P.
 
Looks like a great time to me.  Cannot wait to get there.  We will be in Thursday P.M.  Since we are all going to share Dave,s car for the dune run, we should plan a time to wash it for him. See you soon.
 
Bob and Pat

Dean.... you can always sneak behind T's back and ask the hotel for a headcount. In the past I found this to be the most accurate way to get a good count. (including the locals) If you need anything don't hesitate to hollar at me..... er uh well maybe Pm me.... I be kinda sensitive......

I am sure I could fit a four-wheeler or two in the trailer along with the Corvette.  Heck, the car trailer has a hitch on it, so maybe I could even hook up an additional flat bed trailer for additional necessities.  Would look good going down the road with tandem trailers like one of them big ol trucks.
