Here is one quick tip to save money as you plan your next meeting or event. Once a location has been chosen, take a few minutes to do a little more research. Find out when “peak” season is for the area through internet searches, Convention & Visitors Bureau or a local chamber of commerce website. Once you have obtained this information plan your event on either side of this window. For substantial savings, plan the event three or more months outside of this time frame. Work with your onsite contact to find out if by moving the event one or two days during the week could save you money as well. Sometimes shifting your event by as little as 24 hours can save a lot of money to the bottom line.

Hey, who is that guy running around with the golf club? Meet Jamie Alderman! Jamie was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio and went to college at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio. Throughout his PGA career, he has traveled a lot…spending some time in all of these locations:
Spring 2013 is moving at a much slower pace compared to Spring 2012. Ice still is covering many lakes across Minnesota but Spring is already well into the air with the warmer days and brighter sunshine. Many changes will appear the next few weeks as things quickly transition from a brown look to green up by early May. You can already hear the new bird songs and even some tulips are popping up in the areas facing the south. During the month of April the daylight will grow longer and the grasses will continue to green and eventually the frogs will be singing a noisy evening chorus that Spring is really here. Average high temperatures at Bay Lake will rise from the mid 40s in early April to near 60 degrees by the end of the month and climbing into the 70s during May.
Watch for the signs, they are right around the corner and soon we will all be enjoying the lake!

When putting together a fiscally responsible business plan, off-site meetings and events can easily fall off the radar. It may seem that the time, effort and expense of planning the event does not equal the outcome. However, in today’s world of email, Skype, texting, and rushed agendas, an off-site meeting is one of the best investments your company can make.
One of the most important outcomes is the opportunity for people to connect! In the office, we all have our own responsibilities and demands on our time. It is hard to come together, get to know each other, and focus on new ideas. Many times this is not achieved in the actual meeting room but during a dinner or an event. Many clients tell me that they come up with the best ideas and solutions to challenges while sitting around the bonfire at the resort.
There are many things to enjoy during your stay with us. One of them is a visit to the Fine Line Salon & Spa.
The Fine Line Salon & Spa at Ruttger’s is an Aveda Concept Salon and carries a full line of Aveda products. Located south of the Country Store, the Fine Line offers hair color, design, style, manicures, pedicures, facials, skin care, make-up consultations, several different types of massage and yoga.
You can call ahead for appointments at 218.678.2157.
Whether you are on a family vacation or need to book a larger group, relax and look great at the lake with The Fine Line Salon and Spa at Ruttger’s!
