Dear friends and BMW riders !
BMW Motorrad Club Northern Illinois
Would like to invite you to our 15th annual Galena Campout on August 24 to August 26 at the Palace Campground in Galena Illinois.
It is located on Rt 20,next to the Wal Mart store.
The big tent will again be the Center of activities, where you will meet other
BMW riders, just to have a good time among us BMW family.
Friday August 24, we serve dinner for our guests at 5 Pm.
Right next to our activity tent is a bath house with clean showers and we will have our usual 6AM Coffee and Pastries waiting for you. For you late sleepers, there is more waiting for you, mixed with soft classical music.
That day at 10 Am, we all go for a ride with a lunch stop somewhere.
The ride will return to the Campground by 4.30 Pm when our mighty Weber grill will yield up her treasures, Greek Style chicken and German bratwurst.
Not to mention corn on the cob, baked beans and homemade Sauerkraut.
We have a good time, sitting later together by the evening fire and good friends. Sunday morning begins again at 6 Am with Coffee and pastries before packing up for the ride home. This is the moment we say,
Auf ein Wiedersehen !
