COWs 2016 Spring Rally — Marshfield, WI – summary
Spring Rally 2016 might go down as the best weather ever for a COWs Spring Rally! Beautiful blue skies and temperatures in the 70s and 80s were greatly enjoyed by 47 Teams during the May 20 – 22 week-end. The routes on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday took us in multiple directions – and all roads offered low traffic and just slight to rolling hills. Saturday night’s banquet offered a special surprise as we celebrated the Laab’s 50th wedding anniversary with some Asti and a special cake. Thanks to the Gleisners and the Laabs for a great job of planning and hosting.
COWs 2016 Faux Fall Rally — Fish Creek, WI (DOOR COUNTY)
August 19 – 21, 2016
Hosted By: Bill & Sandy Moore and Pete & Trish Noffke
Host Hotel / Hotel options: Parkwood Lodge (Host) and Homestead Suites (see below for more information on the hotels)
Since the Fall Rally is being held in August we decided to call it the “Faux” Fall Rally….but whatever you want to call it, come share in the fun and sun in beautiful Door County. The hosts are still in the midst of planning but here are their early thoughts: All rides will start from Fish Creek. The ride format isn’t quite set but expect multiple routes of varying distances. There will be planned get togethers on Friday and Saturday nights as well as a Sunday breakfast ride. Bring lawn chairs as the get togethers might be outdoors. More information yet to come.
For the hotels: Door County Hotels fill up fast for the weekends. We suggest you make reservations ASAP if you plan to go – even if you are not sure – just make sure you understand the cancellation policy for the hotel you book.
