SAILING ON LAKE ONALASKA AND DINNER

Join Kelly Dunn on his sailboat Kele as you spend an afternoon on beautiful Lake Onalaska. 
Kelly has sailed boats for over 50 years.  You and your guest will meet him at La Crosse Sailing Club to board his boat . Then plan on being on the water for a few hours as you view the majestic bluffs of the Mississippi. Perhaps a bald eagle will fly by and snatch a fish from the
lake. After returning to the Club we will enjoy a nice dinner at a local restaurant
in La Crosse. The trip will be scheduled on a mutually agreeable date between
the end of May and mid-September and is weather and wind dependent. Both a
weekend day, or weekday departures are possible. - Kelly Dunn
CHAUFFEURED GREEN BAY PACKER FOOTBALL GAME
 
4 Packer Tickets plus a ride to and from the game!  We will transport your party of 4 to Lambeau Field in our vehicle, provide the game tickets, cover the parking, plus have some snacks and beverages for the ride.  Once the game is over, we will drive you all back home from Green Bay.  Depending on game time, we will have either a pregame tailgate type lunch for you or a stop for dinner on the way home.  Since the schedule is not out yet, we will provide you 2 or 3 options of games that work for us once the dates are known.  Then you can let us know which you chose for your group. – Dean and Nancy McHugh

GIFT OF FLIGHT

– Wait no longer. Let’s go to breakfast in Reedsburg, Marshfield, Boscobel, Red Wing or Wisconsin Dells at the Casino. I will fly you there in a Cessna 172 Skyhawk. The breakfast is secondary to the joy of soaring like an eagle. Great for one person or a couple.

You will have the opportunity to fly the airplane via Visual Flight Rule with the option to track the flight on two separate GPS instruments, all from the confines of the front seat. You are even allowed to “Text and fly”…. Cell phone communication is guaranteed.
