Default GTG/Cruise Saturday October 19th in Sturgeon Bay, WI

It's sad to think that summer is almost halfway over, since it seems like it just got here or at least it does here in Sturgeon Bay. Anyway, that means it's time to plan the fall get together slash cruise and after checking my schedule, it looks like I have the 19th of October open, which should be close to peak fall colors that weekend.
Your more than welcome to invite a friend that is into cars, but doesn't have a TDI. I figure the more the merrier.

Our shop will be the meeting spot for the cruise/gtg.
203 Keel Ct
Sturgeon Bay, WI 54235

Our shop is 60x90 and has a 2 post lift for anyone that would be interested in getting underneath their car or just make it easier to rotate tires, change pads, bleed/flush brakes, etc. Please no major work unless I approve it.

Start time is 9am and we usually have a 15 minute meet and greet before we leave for the cruise. The cruise usually takes between 3-4 hours depending on route/speed if you just wanna come for the gtg portion or if there is someone that would be there tuning cars. You can figure we'll be back between 12:30 and 1.

If you can please bring a dish to pass(can be cookies, chips, water, soda, napkins, plates, plasticware, etc) for when we get back from the cruise and get the grill going to cook some burgers, brats, and if you wanna bring something else to put on the grill you're more than welcome to.

If there's enough interest, I'll see if one of the tuners would be willing to attend. Whether that's Jeff at Rocketchip or one of the Malone tuning dealers in the area.

Feel free to pm me or ask here if you think others might be wondering the same thing. I look forward to seeing everyone this fall.

I've got it penciled in. I likely won't have my TDI any longer, but I'll have a diesel.

Great. What happened to the Bettle? What's the new diesel you purchased?

You could always take the Lake Express that goes until October 21st, you would just squeeze in before they stop making trips from Muskegon to Milwaukee.

Not a problem. Glad to help and hope you can make it. Let me know if you need a place to stay if you do make the trip.

Thinking about it; maybe including a long weekend in Door County with my wife.

Thinking about it as well, you can pencil me in.

I'd be interested to hear any news on tuners attending.

It's a fantastic time of the year up here around that time with the colors changing and getting to hit up some of the back roads of Door County is hard to beat imo.

I can make some inquires if there's enough interest.

Definitely coming. We booked a place in Gardner on the water. Looking forward to the cruise to show my wife Door County, assuming we'll be going up that way.

That's great to hear! Yeah, we'll be more than likely making the loop up north to see what we can in the northern part of the county.
