For what will be our SIXTH year in a row, this Event has become known as THE most rowdy WHOOPEE romp of the year, with members flabbergasted so much fresh-air fun could even be legal! (Check out the rave reviews and PHOTOS [ya gotta see the photos!] from just the past two years here:

However, this year will be EVEN better than ALL the rest, and here's why! Due to our ever-increasing numbers of members who just must attend this Can't-Miss Event, this year for the first time ever, we have our own Pub Crawl JUST for SINGLES (and, of course, any and all Single Friends members who are now couples!), with TWO big haywagons, each holding 35 to 40 bodies! We still visit the same super-fun 7 bars, get the included All-You-Can-Eat hot lunch buffet, DJ, dancing, drink specials, Apple Pie Shots...AND get to hang out at each pub with all those super-friendly Wisconsin locals, including some pretty hot bikers. :-) Plus WE have the BEST date of the month: the Saturday right before Halloween, instead of a week earlier...and we will SO be IN the spooky Halloween spirit!
We meet first at a friendly Wisconsin pub where many of us will wear fun costumes (completely optional, but you'll feel much more in the spirit if you try to throw on something fun, even on your head, like devil horns or cute bunny ears!), then climb into THREE huge haywagons pulled by enormous tractors to SEVEN different bars, all psyched to greet us! The $25 ticket includes SWB ("Seasonal Wagon Booze:" elixir shots of a deadly-great combo of apple cider, apple juice, cinnamon sticks and vodka, lovingly referred to by the locals as "Apple Pie"), excessive and outrageous decorations all day long, live music and dancing at some stops, apple-bobbing, a big bonfire, lots of friendly bikers, plus an all-you-can-eat hot lunch buffet of pizza, Italian beef sandwiches and more. Drinks at all the bars are dirt cheap (compared to Illinois), and each bar is scheduled to offer a Two-Buck Special.
Our 3 haunted haywagons leave promptly at 11am, and this event sells out and MUST be prepaid...the sooner the better to guarantee a spot for your butt on a comfy hay bale! It's just $25 total, which already includes our Event Fee...or $26.50 with PayPal. If you prefer, pay me at an earlier Event or mail a check to Patty Hook, 4465 W. Cherry Tree Court, Wadsworth, IL 60083. If you choose ANY payment option other than PayPal, PLEASE indicate in the Comments part of your RSVP what it is and when that will happen. Remember, just RSVPing does NOT hold your place for this outrageously popular Event (which, by the way, takes place rain or shine). Once it is sold out by those who PREPAID, you can still hop on our Waiting List, as sometimes people opt out for personal reasons as the date gets nearer.
If you'd like to join a carpool from my place, which is right on the way there (see address above), be here by 9:30am sharp for the 25-minute-or-so drive to our destination OR arrive there on your own at 10:15am. This gives us enough time for a quickie (and scary!) Blooooody Mary before leaving. College football will be playing, as will tunes, and great pub food is available almost everywhere, in addition to the lunch buffet included. EEEEEeeeeEeEeEEEeeeeKKKKK! WILL WE LIVE TO TELL THIS TALE?????????
Don't miss THIS (hay)wagon, baby!
