hey, not sure if i'll be able to make it because of work and such, but what should a newcomer expect? how much cash to bring, what do you guys/gals do, and how much time is everyone actually together? (i know these things all vary, but just trying to get an idea) never done one before :)

We usually try to eat Fri. supper together and some go to breakfast on Sat. morning after a few beers at the local establishments. All are close to motel so there is no riding once alcohol is introduced. But that is a personnel preference. There is usually a nice ride through the area on Sat. mid morning. Some go some don't. Some just like to hang around the strip and take in the sites. Sat night is pretty much a repeat of Fri. nite. May find a little nicer restraunt and ride there and eat. Then back to motel and maybe a few beers at the Showboat and some Kareoke. Sun. head home at your own pace.
Hope this helps.

There isn't any thought being given to changing the Dells weekend because of the Automotion Festival is there? It was going on last year and we still managed to have a great time.

And some of us may not stop at a 'few' beers... A small group of the guys usually heads up to a local 'club' for the scenery on Saturday evening.

Nope, not for me. Everything worked out fine last year and we saw some cool cars.

...Don't quite see what the big stir is about regarding this automotion car festival conflicting with our Spring Dells trip??? If I can recall, we were there last spring with this automotion car function going on and we absolutely had NO issues at all the entire weekend??? Please don't let this car festival be the deciding factor on whether er not you partake in the Spring trip cuz if you do, you'll definately be missing out on an awesome time, so git yer azzes up there!!! ...Just my .02 :thumbup:

Momma is the woman who runs the TopHat Motel in the Dells 1-608-253-5431. She takes alot of sh*t from us, but loves us all like her own..... even more.

I hear ya' David...the Dells ride can't get here soon enough to suit me. I think the winter doldrums are driving us all half nuts and the only cure is a weekend with our WIVO brothers and sisters, a shared laugh with momma, and one or two Monks burgers with lotsa brewskis to wash 'em down!!!
