Upper Midwest MC Gathering??????

After hearing about all of the fun people have at Mag Mania I was wondering how many people would be interested in attending a similar gathering in the Upper Midwest next year. There seems to be a large number of members from Northern Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota and one from the U.P. . Please post if you would be interested in something like this and any suggestion of a location. I think that Northern Wisconsin(Minocqua-54548) would be a great spot since there are 1000's of lakes and lots of nice lodging (and I live here ). Hopefully we can figure something out and not let all of the Mag Mania attendees have all of the fun

Mileage to the Minocqua Area From:


Bayfield, WI 111
Chicago, IL 348
Des Moines, IA 483
Door County 196
Dubuque, IA 295

Green Bay, WI 162
Hayward, WI 109
Indianapolis, IN 528
Madison, WI 224
Milwaukee, WI 265
Rockford, IL 273
Twin Cities, MN 247
Wisconsin Dells, WI 155


Please let me know if you are interested

Count me in, I love the Minocqua and Eagle River, WI area! We have vacationed in Eagle River often, but it does seem to be getting more crowded these days.

Hey, we need to market this with some kind of great name - Dat's Drunk, Dat's Going to Hurt, Erk's Great Event or we could start mid week and call it UMPDAY - any way you get the idea. Gotta think of a name!

I tried to com up with something catchy and could not. It is Friday and I want a beer

"Dat's Gonna Hurt" is kinda funny

Sounds great!!! I think it is best to set a date early, then there are no excuses for having other plans. I am in the Milwaukee area, West Bend to be exact. I would bring my boat too as long as nobody sinks it for being brand-x (non-MasterCraft).

thinking about it . . .

The wife and I might be interested depending on what we would think of to do with the kids....

Lake Dubay , driven by it... very centrally located S. of Wausau and a quick trip since it's just off I-39. But I would seriously consider having a local like DatDude find a place a bit more remote where the water might be even less crowded. Some place we could rent a house would be cool - we might be able to bring another couple or 2.

If there's enough interest, put some suggestions on a poll. . . .
