Fall Color Ride
by Laura Netzinger

On a very cold, brisk morning, we got into our MX5s and drove about 2 hours to our parking lot destination in Delafield. The wind gusts were increasing as we began to gather for driving instructions. Brave drivers and passengers got into the 17 MX5s and headed out for an adventure. We had about a 10 minutes delay as our sweep was having trouble with reception on their CB radio. Another person volunteered then, so we began the first leg, about 30 miles long. We meandered along as Jim and Marcy H led the way through the curvy roads (YES, there are curvy roads in SE Wisconsin). Soon we were meeting many debranched trees as we had to start dodging them along the roads.

Then came the rain, sleet, hail, and winds of about 55mph (according to the radio news). We dodged branches left, then right, then left, then right, hold on to your seat tight, dodging branches along the roller coaster roads; well you get the picture. As we passed ponds, we saw the cattails starting to sway sideways in the wind.

And as if that were not enough excitement, about 10 miles into the ride, the lead car announced there was a big tree across the road! So about 10 guys got out of their cars and removed the tree to the side of the road, it took that many to move it as it was heavy. As we continued our adventure we dodged more Paul Bunyan sized toothpicks, well it seemed that way in our little 2-seaters.

See the post event article for a complete review of the ride.

Highway Tribute Band Concert

Come and join us for a winter getaway Sunday, January 27. The Schauer Center in Hartford, WI. is featuring a tribute band based on the Highwaymen (Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, and Weylon Jennings). This is a popular group that has played nationwide. The concert date is January 27th, 2019 at 3:00 pm and the show is selling out with only upper level seats still available. They are $26.00 each if we buy at least 20 tickets. As of November 3 we have 18 people going.

We are planning lunch at the Mineshaft restaurant before the concert for those that are interested.
