Voyageurs and Dames
The Grande Voiture de Wisconsin and the Grande Cabane de Wisconsin are extremely proud to host the 96th Promenade & 52nd Rendezvous in Green Bay, Wisconsin. As Conducteur National, I plan on sending out periodical updates and items of interest for all who are planning to attend this year’s event.
For those who are flying in; there is free shuttle service to the hotel which is basically across the street. NO JOKE! The first item I’d like to mention is that the National Railroad Museum is but approximately 10 minutes away from the Radisson Hotel. The Eisenhower train from WWII is there along with some of the largest locomotives I have ever seen in my life. The Wisconsin Merci Box Car is also housed there. We in Wisconsin are extremely proud of the fact that the Voyageurs and Cabane members raised funds for the restoration of the Box Car. It’s without a doubt one of the best looking box cars in all of La Societe.
Tuesday late afternoon, the EARLY BIRD PARTY will be taking place. We are having it outside but in case of nasty weather, it’ll be held inside. Two things I’d like to mention and that is we are planning on an ol fashioned Midwest Tail Gate Party. Black Angus burgers and Johnsonville brats to go along with potato salad, beans, cole slaw, cheese (oh yeah lots of cheese) chips, salads, etc. ALL YOU CAN EAT. We plan on having (4) serving lines so no one has to wait in line more than a few minutes. We are asking everyone who is attending, wear the colors of their favorite sports team. We are also looking into a band of some kind for the Early Bird Party. The hotel will have portable bars set up around the tailgate area.
In future communications I plan on speaking on the fishing excursions some of you have asked about, the golf outing, trips to the finest wineries in the land, area restaurants, and of course historic Lambeau Field; home of the Green Bay Packers who just happen to be home watching the Super Bowl this Sunday. Crap; I better not get started on that! However there are tours there every day. Hope you’re making your reservations soon Voyageurs and Dames. See you there.
