Thank you to Rich and Richard
They did it again, for the 3rd year in the row. Bemidji 2016.
This year Rich added a new options to the activity list, golf. Several members took the opportunity and drove down on Thursday. The remaining group traveled from Winnipeg to Baudette and met with members from Sioux Lookout.
After a short lunch break the group continued to Bemidji. Just before we reached our destination the sky opened up and the windshield wipers had to work overtime.
Rich organized a welcome reception and outlined the schedule for the weekend. Our president David welcomed everyone, especially the Stensrud’s from the Nord Stern Region and the Olson’s from the Dakotas Region in their 356 speedster.
We started on Saturday at 9am, sharp. Rich guided us through Bemidji’s back yard, the Mississippi Headwaters. What a great area to spend a day in our Porsches. We had three stops on the way, Bad Medicine Lake, Walker and Forestedge Winery. Everyone in the group enjoyed the day, especially when the sun came out and we were able to open the roofs. The day ended with a wonderful dinner at our host hotel, the Double Tree by Hilton.
The next morning, members met again at the breakfast buffet and organized their trips back home. Everyone said we have to do it again. Rich joined us and said he has already plans for the 2017 edition, can’t wait.
Thanks again to Richard Wansbutter and Rich Siegert for organizing the event and everyone for coming.
