    Come join your fellow Nordics for a fun day in the Lake Country area.

    Start the morning with a 30 mile bike ride around some of the local lakes. Once the bike ride is over, we can all enjoy a BBQ and some yard games.

    We plan to start the bike ride at 9:00 a.m. from our house and ride approximately for 3 hours. Or if biking is not your thing, perhaps the Oconomowoc Arts Festival would be of interest. Then come over for the BBQ at approximately 12:00 p.m. For more information, you can visit this website:

    We will provide the main food and potatoes. If you wish, you can bring a side dish. Don’t forget to bring your own beverage and lawn chair. Bike helmets are not required, but are strongly recommended.

    Please call Chris Pantazon by Friday at 414-852-4155 or 920-474-3203 with questions or to let her know you would be coming. She needs to get a rough count for the food. At that time, she will give you directions to her home in Oconomowoc. If the weather is questionable, we will hold the BBQ and games indoors.

    Join the Glacier State Paddlers on Sunday, August 23 for an easy, social canoe trip. This trip will start and end on Hwy Q at the bridge over the Oconomowoc River just east of the town of Monches, so no car shuttling will be needed. The canoe trip will begin at 12:00 pm and will follow the Oconomowoc River for several miles until it reaches Lowes Lake, part of the Kettle Moraine State Forest. After a nice swimming break, we will return to our starting point followed by an optional barbeque dinner at the home of Lynn and Diane Pagenkop after 3 pm. Please bring your meat to grill and beverage, plus a dish to pass.

    Contact Diane Pagenkop at 414-540-1161 or to RSVP for the picnic. Contact GSP trip leader Lois Brown at 414-535-0014 or email at to reserve a spot on the trip for the paddle and for more information.

    Bring something to drink and snacks for the canoe trip. Identify yourself as a Nordic Ski Club member. Canoe rental cost will probably be $6.00 per person. Money should be paid directly to Lois. There is no fee if you have your own canoe or kayak.
