UPcoming events


September Packer game viewing parties

Bill Cammack will once again reserve places in the bar area at Cody’s, Lake Sumter Landing, for our  Wisconsin Club members. However, you MUST let Bill know you are joining the party. E-mail him at billcammack@hotmail.com, call or text 312-304-7757 within 2 days of the game to reserve your spot. It’s important to RSVP so Bill has an accurate count for Cody’s manager.

And – this is new – please wear your Wisconsin Club badge to ensure that your seat is not taken by someone else who is not in our Club. Coming up this month:  9/15 vs. Vikings and 9/22 vs. Broncos. Kick-off at 1 p.m.
Debbie Hall has graciously volunteered to run the pool on game days once more. Take a chance; you may be lucky! 

September 28 – The combined Wisconsin Clubs golf scramble

 The combined Wisconsin clubs golf scramble is $2 per person at Saddlebrook & Hawks Bay golf courses. It's a social event so come, play, and get to know others with Wisconsin connections. A free pitcher of beer or soda is given to each couple. Small prizes are awarded for closest to the pin for men & women & lowest combined foursome. Foursomes are picked at random. Couples are kept together. Final instruction are given at the course.
