The WLIA will be hosting the Spring Regional Meeting at The Lismore Hotel in Eau Claire, WI on May 30th and 31st, 2019. The Lismore is located in rejuvenated downtown Eau Claire, near the confluence of the Chippewa and Eau Claire Rivers. The vibrant downtown is home to the brand new Pablo Center at the Confluence, which contains studios, galleries, and a 1200 seat theater. The area also features numerous restaurants, taverns, and retail developments, and is home to the expansive Phoenix Park, a former brownfield site with trails, gardens, and a vast permanent Farmer’s Market site.
Registration is open and the final Agenda for the meeting is posted and can be used with the Sched App if you prefer. We will be doing news posts in the weeks to come highlighting the wonderful workshops, interesting presentations, and special interest group meetings.
We also have a social night planned featuring Eau Claire’s destination brewery, The Brewing Projekt. The new taproom located at 1807 North Oxford Avenue is a completely renovated riverfront industrial building. The space was transformed from a blighted building set for demolition into a working brewery with a modern airy taproom. Social night will also feature Kubb upon consideration that Eau Claire is the Kubb Capital of North America and home to the U.S. National Kubb Championship. What is Kubb you may ask? Well Kubb, otherwise known as Viking Lawn Chess, is a game of mental skill and strategy. It is a game for everyone, regardless of skill level, experience, or age. Members of the Eau Claire Kubb Championship committee will be on hand to get us started and give us a few pointers. If you are interested in learning more about how to play Kubb ahead of time here is a video. Transportation will be provided for social night.
We look forward to seeing you at our Spring Regional Meeting. This will be a joint meeting between the WLIA and WRPLA. All WRPLA members will be able to attend at WLIA member rates. We have reserved a block of rooms for $82.00 per night single and $149.00 per night double. This rate is offered 3 days before and after the regional meeting. Make your room reservation by May 7th for best availability.
