Update #1 (Jan 4, 2013)

Please mark your calendars for Saturday October 12th, 2013 and plan to meet with old and new members at our chili lunch near Gays Mills Wisconsin in Crawford County.

We will meet in Waunakee, WI between 9:30 and 10 AM Saturday morning and travel to the Gays Mills area in Crawford County and have an open air chili lunch provided by your club, during this extended lunch break we want you to visit the apple orchards in the hills around Gays Mills. Be sure to sample apple cider donuts, apple pizza, fresh apple pies, and apple caramel sundaes and other specialties sold at the many orchards on highway 171, high above the Kickapoo River.

Dave and Lynn Bonfield will be planning this adventure with help from Jim and Joanne Tuckwood, but if you have ideas or want to help with planning a Badgerland Miata Club event please feel free to give us ideas about how you want to spend your day at our club's fall adventure. More details will follow, but mark the date on your calendars.
