One brother lives in Washington DC and the other in Philadelphia. Each year, one of them plans a one day surprise trip to an off the wall place. Last year it was Cleveland. One brother plans it, researches all the neat things that make that place interesting, and then puts together an itinerary, but doesn’t show the other brother until the last moment possible. Then they board the planes, fly off to their destination, and are only in town for a day.
As a side note: When they came to open curling, we were actually full and they were told that we didn’t think we would be able to get them on. They said they came to Kalamazoo just to curl. We thought that was weird, but we found out they were serious. We also had a group of about 8 from Notre Dame that we didn’t have room for either. Thank goodness some of the “new” curlers we had on the ice wanted to jump over to another sheet with some friends. That opened it up and we got them all on. Being that it was their only time in Kalamazoo, they also scouted out the best place in town for donuts, so they had a dozen Sweetwater’s donuts for everyone to share. They all had a great time.
