Winter Solstice (and Sky) Celebration

The astronomical summer solstice is June 21st, during the Nationals. The winter solstice is December 21st, very close to the traditional holidays, so...

This is to notify one and all Kappa owners and aficionados of the seventh annual Winter Solstice and Sky Celebration.

Where:

Baker's (same as last year)
2025 S. Milford Road
Milford, MI 48381
248-685-0505

When:

Sunday, January 8, 2016 1:00 PM

Not a ride, just a get together for food, drink, swapping Kappa stories and planning for warmer days to come. Bring your daily driver (and if your daily driver is a Kappa, that will work!)

Order from the menu...Individual billing.

A final note -- this IS Michigan and it IS winter, so the weather is an unknown. If the weather gets nasty, I will try and post a cancellation notice here on the forum no later than 11 AM on Sunday morning (and re-schedule).

Hope to see you there!

I'd love to join you for this, but there is this small obstruction in the way, Lake Michigan, and the ferries don't run in winter. But there is a possibility we could combine your event with another project I have in mind.

Later.

It seems to be a tradition at out house, I bought my wife a 2009 G8GT on the winter Solstice in 2010, and I bought my Solstice just before the winter Solstice 6 years later. In our house it is Pontiac's for the winter Solstice!

We have not been to Bakers in about a year, so we will try and make it, sounds like fun and I can put a few Faces to screen names!

We'll be very glad to have you and your wife join us. Every year we have had several of our neighbors from the south (Windsor) join us for various rides and activities.

You'd think they would just daisy-chain the ferries before the lake ices over, creating a temporary highway.

Lazy ferry drivers. Sheesh - kids have no initiative these days.

Heck, the lake is only 83 miles wide from Milwaukee, WI to Muskegon, MI. If you get going fast enough you could just skip across that far . . .
