Meetings & Events: Meeting Inspiration – Move

Posted on: February 26th, 2014 by admin

RUT027 (1)

Looking for new inspiration for your meeting or event? Have you noticed attendees zoning out, starting to slump in their chairs or getting antsy? Here is an idea for you….move! A brief exercise break works great to get attendees energized and engaged again.

The exercise does not need to be an hour long class. It can be as simple as chair yoga stretches or something fun, like a short outdoor scavenger hunt. These mini exercises can be led by a professional or a volunteer from the group.

Finding an easy, quick activity will boost morale, productivity, attendees will be happier, motivated and more involved. So many benefits! Remember to keep in mind any physical limitations of the group. The Ruttger’s staff is here to help in your planning down to the smallest details.

Benjamin Franklin once said, “ You don’t stop playing because you grow old, you grow old because you stop playing.”

Tami Price

We know many of you have talked to Tami when booking your stay with Ruttger’s Bay Lake Lodge. It is always so nice to put a face with a name and get to know that person behind the phone, so….meet Tami Price! Tami is starting her 18th year with us and her knowledge of the resort is vast as she was born and raised right here in the area. Just like Ruttger’s Bay Lake Lodge is family owned and operated, Tami has that same belief and strong family bond. She has been married for 35 years to Randy, who also works at Ruttger’s! Even Tami’s daughter was an employee when she was 14 to age 21. Pretty awesome! We asked Tami some questions about her and about the resort…make sure to see the last question and find out the best time of year to visit us.

Meetings & Events – Save Money Planning Your Next Event

Posted on: May 6th, 2013 by admin

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.

For more information about planning an event at Ruttger’s, you can contact us at 800.450.4545 or you can request a proposal at our website:

Happy Planning!
