  • Midwest Regional event - Brown County 2010




    Lets try this again... after a rough start it's time to get planning the regional event, again.. Basically I will copy and paste from the old thread and update when we find out more details. I apologize for all the confusion, hopefully we can get it all worked out. I am going to start with a simple approach, in the next few months we should have many more of the details ironed out.

    Here is the 2009 Thread for anyone who wasn't there .... https://www.s2kca.com/S2000/showthread.php?t=31793


    WHEN: Oct 1, 2 & 3, 2010

    WHERE: The Abe Martin Lodge in Brown County State Park - http://www.in.gov/dnr/parklake/inns/abe/

    ROOMS: Room Rate is $112/night. We have Twenty-five rooms for Friday and Saturday. Free WiFi is provided.

    All rooms must be reserved before Aug. 15th 2010 - BUT, we expect these rooms to go fast. So, procrastinator beware. This is a VERY popular lodge at a very popular time ... so I don't expect there to be more rooms available if these are all booked.

    ALCOHOL: No alcohol can be sold inside the park. It can be carried in and consumed in most areas of the park but it must be in a non-identifiable container (a cup/mug). Therefore, BYOB and bring a cup/mug. IMPORTANT - NO IDENTIFIABLE ALCOHOL can be outside of YOUR sleeping room. That means no coolers in your car or in our meeting room. You can carry your mug wherever, but must go back to your room to refill it. You can bring the beverages into the park, but not in a cooler. They go into a cooler once in your room and the cooler must stay in your room.

    PARKING: There is a separate lower parking lot that will work great for us. We will research washing-facilities.

    PARK ENTRANCE FEE: There is a $5 for Indiana residents and $7 for out of state residents entrance fee. Everyone will have to pay this the first time they enter the park. We were told that a room key would work from that point on. The fee is a daily fee; therefore, I want to verify that the room key will cover the following days.

    THINGS TO DO: We are working on some great ideas. Here are a couple of them.

    The main drive will be Saturday morning, just like the last few years. With lunch at the historic Story Inn.

    ~ Drive to West Baden Springs Hotel … a GORGEOUS old high-class resort with at-one-time the largest unsupported dome in the US. http://www.frenchlick.com/hotels/westBaden/index.jsp (tour is $10)

    ~ within minutes of W. Baden is the French Lick Resort, Spa and Casino …. http://www.frenchlick.com/

    ~ There is also a cool indoor go-cart track at W. Baden


    ~ There are several wineries nearby – two with large decks overlooking ponds – and both have nice drives to get to them … a great place to drive to and hang out during the afternoon

    ~ Shopping in Nashville


    More details to be added as we get things more solidified. Please post up if you plan on attending. Please note if you have reserved a room(and what days), or just planning on doing the drive on Saturday. I am going to need a lot of help getting this together, so if anyone would like to volunteer to help it would be much appreciated.

            Since I seem to be the only one booked for Thursday night, I can change to Friday and Saturday.

                                        Update: I was able to get the banquet hall canceled. This is good news; we will be able to give everyone who paid the up front deposit a refund. Since only 6 or 7 people singed up it didn’t really make sense to have a hall that holds 100 people. I think I am real lucky to be able to get our money back on this, since the balance was due back in November. We will still have dinner Friday night, just at a restaurant. I will have an itinerary up soon.
