Hey everyone,

Wanted to send out a friendly reminder that the Upper Midwest 3/S Gathering is less than a month away now. Its three jammed packed days of fun in sunny Wisconsin Dells. There is still time to get signed up and get your hotel reservations. The sign up page is at:

Hey everyone,

I got an updated list of our hotel reservations. We only have 18 rooms booked at Baker's Sunset Bay Resort. The last several years, we've had over 30 reservations. The good news is there is still an okay selection of rooms left. The bad news is there REALLY should be more of you with your rooms booked already!!

I also updated the sign up list. We have 73 people on it: http://www.mn3s.org/upper-midwest-list.html

I'm still working on the Friday dinner and what kind of tour we are doing on Saturday afternoon.

Hey everyone,

The UMG is less than two weeks away now. We are in the final stretch. I've updated the sign up list. There is 77 people on it:

There are still rooms at the hotel, so you can still make your last minute reservations. Also, with the train ride added to the schedule, we will be having another little "rural cruise" on Saturday afternoon to get to the train and back. Its about 25 miles out of town. Should be lots of fun.

See you in Wisconsin Dells,

Hey everyone,

The UMG is only a week away. I checked with the hotel and we now have 39 rooms book. Our sign up list is also up to 80 people. I've updated the sign up list and I also made a new map for this year. I'm hoping we'll have 45-50 3/Ses there and probably 60 owners. Its going to be awesome!

Here are a few reminders about things to bring:

1) Bring an FRS radio if you have one. We'll be using them on the rural cruise and other stuff.
2) Bring sunscreen if you burn easily.
3) Bring a lawn chair or two for the Saturday night cookout.
4) Print off the schedule: http://www.mn3s.org/schedule.html
5) Print off the map: http://www.mn3s.org/wisconsin-dells.html
6) Don't forget your car cleaning supplies.

A big THANKS to all that made the trip to Wisconsin Dells for the UMG. We set a new record with 54 3/Ses and 65 owners. That is awesome considering how crappy the economy is!

The rural cruise on Sunday had 45 3/Ses in it, 8 other cars, and 2 bikes. Having 55 vehicles in a rural cruise smashes the old record.

The weather was a little cool on Friday and Saturday, but we didn't really have any rain. Sunday was a beautiful day for the cruise. I'm still recovering, so I haven't done anything with pictures, but there are a lot of other pics floating around.

Thanks again,
