My email situation has been totally TRASHED for the past month. I have therefore set up a new email site specifically for correspondence related to the Highpointers Club 2007 Wisconsin Konvention. My new email address for this purpose is firstname.lastname@example.org. Please use this email for ANY correspondence related to the Konvention.
Latest update: we already have well over 170 people registered for the Konvention. The Stoney Creek Inn reserved 80 rooms for us, and they are ALL booked. There is a possibility that several additional rooms may become available at the end of June, so you may wish to get on their waiting list. You can also contact the Holiday Inn across the street, which also has rooms for the same rate ($84.00 per night). The next newsletter will have many more details about exciting trips we have planned in connection with the Konvention, including two dairy tours, a tour of the Harley-Davidson plant, and two separate county highpoint trips, plus Roger Rowlett's "expedition" to Poniatowski. Also, check the HPC web site for more details.
Remember, if you do not register by June 30th, you will be charged a late registration fee, and there is no guarantee you will get a T-shirt. So let's all sign up SOON and make this the BIGGEST HPC KONVENTION EVER!!!!!
See ya soon one time in Wisconsin, eh? Thanks much. JES
Tomorrow (June 30) is the last day to register for the WI 2007 HPC Konvention at the regular rate of $60.00 per person (or $41.00 for kids under 5), and to assure yourself of receiving a T-shirt . Starting July 1, the registration fee will include a $5.00 per person late registration fee. While we will do everything possible to get T-shirts to everyone, we have no guarantees, OK?
The numbers of folks planning to come has really jumped. We now have more than 250 registered! It's going to be a BIG BASH, folks, so join the party and let's make this the BIGGEST EVER! We will be posting numerous items on the HPC website, including detailed schedules, directions, the "How to Speak Wisconsin Good" dictionary, and other good stuff. The committee is looking forward to seeing all of you at the party. If you have any questions or comments, or you want to help out, please contact me at the convention email address: email@example.com.
By the way, we will be happy to take any new, unopened items for door prizes, if you have contacts in the sporting goods/sports apparel/climbing/outdoor book fields. Bring them to the convention and we'll get them on the table with our grateful thanks! We will also have special prizes for all the younger kids coming.
See ya soon, one time, eh? JES
