ÜRestörätiön League was created in Cabin John, MD on November 6, 2011, over some fine wine and cheese. Beer was abundant but mysteriously not offered, served.
The first meeting of charter members was scheduled for Saturday Dec. 10, 2011 at an unnamed place lodging near Wisp Ski Resort, McHenry, MD. First organized event was to be at Wisp, to celebrate http://photos1.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/1/3/d/0/event_74825072.jpeg Wisp's 56th Birthday with $10 lift tickets. Unfortunately, Mother Nature did not cooperate ... no snow.
We didn't despair too long. The Gränd Pööbäh made an executive decision and deftly relocated the meeting to Cabin John, and arranged for a Moonlight Ritual with a dipping of toes in the raging and frigid Potomac and howling at the full moon. The occasion was capped with the popping of the cork of a bottle of Prosseco, several toasts, and the ceremonial swilling of faux Kööl Aide. We than retired to the toasty confines of the bar at Anglers Inn, next to a crackling fire.
