Indischleife Fall Tour 2020
Are you tired of being stuck inside and unable to see your Windy City BMW friends? Well it is time to come out of hiding and stretch those legs. Hop in the car and join us for the 3-day tour we have been looking forward too, for months and months. The application for the 2020 Indischleife Fall Tour is finally here! We will be starting our journey October 2nd, early Friday morning at the Tippecanoe Battlefield in West Lafayette, Indiana. One of our sponsors, Clean Tools, the creator of the ABSORBER, has been generous enough to gift our guests, some goodies for our cars. Cleantools.net Starting time will be around 9am Eastern time. It is an hour ahead, so a Thursday night hotel is an option for us nearby at the Comfort Suites Lafayette University Area in Lafayette, Indiana. Phone # 1-765-447-0016. From there, we will zig zag around the state and do some sightseeing. We will run into some Boilermakers, a railroad museum, a toy store, a few covered bridges and some of Windy City’s favorites, twisty roads! Our final destination for Friday will be our hotel for the weekend. The Seasons Lodge in Nashville, Indiana. Phone # 1-800-365-7327. Seasonslodge.com. Friday’s drive, you will be on your own for lunch and dinner. Bring some cash for the trip just in case you want to see a museum or 2. There may be some minor entry fees for the museums if you are interested. Nashville has plenty of choices for entertainment and food. Bloomington, Indiana is another option for dinner Friday night, and it is only 20 minutes away.
Saturday morning, October 3rd, we will be starting off with a continental breakfast, generously paid for by our second sponsor, Siemens Industries new.siemens.com We will be starting our drive around 9am after a quick meeting. Our Start/Finish line will be the Seasons Lodge. The drive will be a loop that replicates the Nurburgring racetrack from Nurburg, Germany. The roads will take us around Brown County State Park in southern Indiana. The day will be dedicated more to the drive and the great roads, rather than stopping at destinations along the way. There will be plenty of places to stop just in case you need to stretch your legs, including cave tours, covered bridges, a weird tall rock, look out points, a winery, and a few Hoosiers. After we conquer the Indiana Ring, we will finish up the evening for a cocktail hour around 6pm and have dinner around 7pm at the Seasons Lodge banquet center next door. Your dinner Saturday night will be part of the fee in the application. Dinner will be a buffet including country fried chicken, pot roast and grilled salmon for the main dishes. Potato salad, pasta salad, green beans, and mashed potato for the sides. The buffet will include desserts, coffee, iced tea, and water. A cash bar will be available for 3 hours. If you have any special needs for food allergies, please let me know so I can let the hotel know prior to the dinner. We will have some goodies to give away at the end of the night thanks to our third generous sponsor, Laurel BMW of Westmont. Laurelbmw.com.
Sunday is fun day! October 4th. This will be a day dedicated to whatever you want to do. There will be a GT World Challenge 8-hour endurance race at the Indianapolis Motor speedway, approximately an hour away from the hotel. Tickets are available, so grab them soon if you are interested. I will also have a list of places to visit in the general area including places to go horseback riding, zip lining, hiking, history, overlook towers, a pioneer village, and the Wonderlab Science Museum. If you would like to wander further out, I have some other interesting places to visit as well. French Lick, Indiana, Hemlock Cliffs, Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory, and George Rogers Clark National Historical Park.
The cost for the tour will be $60 per driver, $45 per guest and $20 per child 10 and under. We will be supplying some snacks and water for the drive for Friday and Saturday. It may be helpful to bring a small cooler if you want to keep your water cold or pick up some fudge on the way! This year we will have an option for a black long sleeve mock turtleneck shirt, with the Indischleife Ring logo on it. If you are interested, mark it on the application. The deadline for the shirt will be September 11th 2020. The deadline for the tour application needs to be in hand by September 22nd, 2020. Full refunds will be made for the (tour only) if COVID 19 wants to wreak havoc on us still, by September 26th, 2020. If you ordered a shirt, we will not be able to refund your money but you will get your shirt. If you have not booked the hotel room and are still interested in joining us, get a room soon. The Seasons lodge is not a large hotel and they have a limited amount of rooms available. We blocked 30 rooms and 25 are taken. We will have until September 2nd to reserve a blocked room under Windy City BMW. Rooms were $169 for a standard room and $189 for a deluxe room.
I appreciate all our sponsors for their generosity. The 3 sponsors we have so far have been a great help to bring the cost of the tour down for our members. We should be thankful in times like these, that we have good people out there willing to give and be generous. I am looking forward to seeing all of you in October.
