Winescursion 2.0

“The Aquila Women’s Wine-Scursion 2.0”

Ok, ladies…this event is for YOU!!

Mark your calendars NOW!!

SUNDAY, AUGUST 13th is the day we will embark on our 2nd Annual “Aquila Women’s Wine-Scursion”!!

This year, however, we are switching up our routine and destination…but still expect the day to be equally amazing!

Here’s the plan…

We will meet at the gym at 9:00am.

We will then walk over to The Mimosa House to have brunch, so to properly nourish ourselves (and pre-drink, if you so choose) for the day ahead.

After we sip and dine, we will rally up Uber/Lyft SUVs to safely take us to The Old Sugar Mill in Clarksburg. Here we will be greeted with 13 different wineries in one location for us to pick and choose whom to sample from.

Should you feel like you may want snacks for later in the day, please feel free to bring a picnic lunch or snacks with you. {Please note, NO outside ice chests or alcoholic beverages NOT purchased on site, are permitted.} You can also choose to purchase food at the featured food truck they’ll have onsite that day, or from their onsite deli. We will stake our claim somewhere on the lawn, in the shade, or wherever suits us best to enjoy the day at this amazing property.

The wineries close promptly at 5:00pm, so it’s safe to say we will return back to home base (aka, the gym) by around (or no later than) 6:00pm or so. Please make sure to have a designated driver waiting there for you, should you believe you’ll need one, or make whatever arrangements are proper for you to get home safely!

Please come prepared to pay for your brunch, your portion of the ride there and back, whatever tasting fees that may be charged (ranging from $5-$10, depending on the winery), and any other food, wine or items you may want to purchase that day.

We will make a reservation at The Mimosa House so we won’t have to wait to be seated amongst the craziness of Sunday brunch goers. So…PLEASE post to comments if you’ll be joining us, so that I can make a reservation that will accommodate everyone.

One last note of encouragement…
EVERY last woman (21 years +), is invited and HIGHLY ENCOURAGED to partake in this social event!! Those of us who went last year, unanimously declared it a super fun day and several members got to meet each other for the first time. So, if you’re a newbie or a longtime member, please know, you’re pretty much guaranteed to have a great time and become more familiar with the badass women you workout with!!

Please feel free to ask Laura Goulding any and all questions you may have, either in the comments below, in person, or on our special group page just for this event, “The Aquila Women’s Wine-Scursion.”

NOW…mark off your calendar as being “BUSY” on SUNDAY, AUGUST 13th, and get ready to have a great day with your fellow gym ladies!
