Join us for our fifth great year at Grand View Lodge, Wed. Sept. 16 - Fri. Sept. 18!

Below is some important information for this week’s event:

  1. Cabins:  Grand View is late on cabin assignments.  Our committee chair will be working with them this weekend to finalize everything. We will have those for you on Monday.  Please be patient.  We apologize for the inconvenience – trust us -  we are anxious, too. 
     
  2. Parking: Most of the group will be housed out of the East Side in Bay Colony, Gull Haven and Interlachen.  This area is about 3 miles from the main lodge. You may park on the main campus and hop the circulator bus on Wednesday and Thursday if that is more convenient. Parking on the East Side is limited – so it may be useful to have one or two members of your group leave their cars on the main campus lots and drive back together to check out on Friday.
     
  3. Bus Circulator: A bus will be provided to circulate people around on Wednesday and Thursday evenings. A map showing the locations of pick-up and drop-off sites will be provided at registration and given to Taste Cabins. Essentially, wherever we have a group of cabins, we will have a site. The bus will run from 6:00 pm to 3:00 am on Wednesday and from 7:00 pm to 2:00 am on Thursday. Please take advantage of this service and do not drink and drive.
     
  4. Wednesday Fall Outing Golf Tourney: Golf will be held at Eagle’s Landing this year. A shuttle will be provided from Grand View that will take you to the golf event and bring you back to Grand View. For those registered for golf – look for an e-mail regarding bus times, leaving Grand View East Side at 10:30 am, returning from Eagle’s Landing at 6 pm, contact Amanda Litz for ride: litza@bitroads.com
