The Tall Club of Milwaukee Invites You to our Oktoberfest in Milwaukee Gathering, September 7-9, 2018.
Dave Rasmussen, President
Barry Umbs, Treasurer
This is our first Milwaukee Gathering.
It is formatted differently than a traditional Tall Club Weekend.
We have selected the La Quinta Inn & Suites in Glendale Wisconsin as our Gathering hotel. They have offered us a rate of $115.00 per night plus tax including a continental breakfast. The rooms are all large two room suites. Book your rooms early at 414‐962‐6767 to assure you can get a room at this rate. Let them know you are with the Tall Club of Milwaukee room block. The hotel is conveniently located near the Bavarian Bierhaus and the Bayshore Mall. You can drive to the hotel with free parking or if you fly into Mitchel International Airport in Milwaukee you will be picked up and shuttled to the hotel by locals.
Friday evening will start with a short walk to dinner at a nearby restaurant and then drinks plus conversation at a local bar. There will not be a formal Afterhours, but we will be able to congregate at the hotel later in the evening. It is BYOB.
On Saturday we will have tours to the Harley Davidson Museum, shopping in Cedarburg and the Potawatomi Casino as optional daytrips plus we can refer you to lots of other Milwaukee tourist attractions on your own. On Saturday night we will walk to the Bavarian Bierhaus for an evening of old world Gemütlichkeit at Oktoberfest. The Milwaukee, Madison and Chicago Clubs have been enjoying this event for many years. The admission is $5.00. Be prepared for lots of German food and drink at your
expense while you enjoy German bands and entertainment until the cows come home. There won’t be a formal Afterhours but a BYOB area will be available again at the hotel.
There is no registration fee for this gathering. As you should have noticed, you will cover your own expenses during your visit. Please let us know ASAP that you plan on attending so we can give you more information and reserve enough tables in the sheltered Bier Hall.
To register call or text Barry at 414‐520‐1324 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
