Milwaukee . . . 10 more days

Postby (bassduke49) » Wed Jun 01, 2011 6:53 pm

Good news! The glaciers have receded and road construction is in full swing! I'm looking forward to seeing Forumites and friends alike on Saturday, June 11. Remember, we can't start until after banking hours which end at 12 noon. Load your Garmins and Tom Tom's with this address: 6560 S. 27th Street, Oak Creek (or you can put in Milwaukee) Wisconsin. Exits off of I-94 are Rawson Avenue to the south and College Avenue to the north (where recommended hotels are). From either exit, the Waterstone Bank on S. 27th Street is about a mile west and on the east side of the parkway-style street. There is a left-turn pocket for southbound traffic.

If ANYONE needs more information, gets lost, or needs help in any way, call me: 414-531-7026. I'm busy with another meeting on Friday night at the same venue, but can break away if needed. We will not be able to set up Friday night, sorry, because of said meeting.

This is going to be great!

So, you don't have any pull at this meeting? :mrgreen:

Unfortunately, it doesn't look good for me this time. On top of everything I already have going on, I just got two gigs booked for next Wednesday and Friday. :(

I plan to attend. You guys are winning out over my new granddaughter and going to Erie to see my daughter and her beau. And getting Railbender Ale if I went there. :lol: :lol:

Ahh, but it isn't Railbender Ale. Erie Brewing, and I'd get a few cases to take back home. Irene will probably be going so I won't be out the beer. :lol:

If Irene is game, Dorothy and Shari are talking about a Rickenbacker Widows Sojourn (RWS) on Saturday. May hit the art museum, botanical gardens, etc. Let me know if that's something of interest.

Actually she is going to Erie, picking up our middle daughter while passing through Toledo.
