Plans for the 2013 Upper Midwest 3/S Gathering are underway. This year's event will be happening on May 17-19 in sunny Wisconsin Dells!

The official page for the UMG can be found at: 2013 Upper Midwest 3/S Gathering (http://umg.mn3s.org)

This year we have two great ways to stay informed about the UMG. First is the Facebook event page found at: https://www.facebook.com/events/513641801993783/ Join the Facebook event for our day to day conversations about the UMG.

We also have the official sign up page for the UMG. If you are coming, you'll want to sign up here so I have an accurate count of who is coming. Plus, you'll get all the important updates. The sign up page is at: Sign up for the 2013 UMG (http://mn3s.org/lists/?p=subscribe&id=9)

I'm hoping to make this the biggest and best UMG yet. And I can't do that without you!!!

Baker's Sunset Bay is ready to take room reservations. (1-800-435-6515) The cheapest rooms are $78 for parking lot facing double queens. These will go fast. Beach facing double queen rooms are $88. If you are staying and extra day like Thursday or Sunday nights, you can get 20% off these rates. Here is their pricing: http://www.sunsetbayresort.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/07/2012-2013_Price_Listimage.jpg We get the "A" rates with no weekend upcharges.

Looks like we now have 37 people officially signed up for the UMG.

I did talk with Baker's Sunset Bay Resort last week. Looks like we have 11 rooms book. So there are still some good rooms left, but I'd recommend getting your room booked soon! The cheaper ones always go fast.

We are only 10 weeks away now!

Hey everyone,

I just got an updated list from Baker's Sunset Bay Resort. Looks like we have 18 rooms booked so far. That isn't too bad. The UMG is only six weeks away now. Its time to get your room booked, if you are going. I think all of the $78 rooms are taken. So get on it soon! Their website is: http://www.sunsetbayresort.com/ Give them a call at 800-435-6515

I know this long winter has you procrastinating, but spring will be here soon. See you in Wisconsin Dells!!!

I've been working on the UMG schedule. I'm a little undecided what to do after the car show on Saturday afternoon. I've heard some interest in going to the Kalahari Indoor Theme Park since we get free tickets from the hotel. In the past we've done a boat tour and go-karts. We'd be on rotation to do the jet-boats this year.

I have a poll on the Facebook event page for you to vote on what you'd prefer. Go to:
https://www.facebook.com/events/513641801993783/

Or you can comment on here what you'd prefer to do. Here is the tentative schedule so far:

Hey everyone,

We've had a few more sign ups in the last week. We now have 55 signed up. I've updated the list at: http://mn3s.org/wordpress/?page_id=1036

I'll be getting the car show trophies made this week. We'll have trophies for Best 91-93 3/S, Best 94-99 3/S and Best overall. Can't wait!

There is still time to get signed up and enjoy a fun weekend with other 3/S enthusiasts in Wisconsin Dells!
