Weekend at The Fantasy Wedding Show

Wilderness Ridge spent this Sunday at The Fantasy Wedding Show in downtown Lincoln. The wedding show was put together by A Sound Impression owner Cali Hlavac and was held at the Lied Center for Performing Arts. Twenty-six vendors were available for new brides to browse their booths and ask questions.

Our booth featured items from many of the vendors we work with on a regualar basis including Petal Creations, AAA Rentals, Purple Sky Photography, and Shane & Sunny Photography. The booth had plenty of photographs so brides-to-be could visualize what a wedding at The Lodge would look like.

Chef Lane Rosenberry made hand-dipped chocolate truffle lollipops for guests to sample as the stopped to get more information. The truffles were a HUGE hit and many people stopped by a second time to get more! We think the lollipops would look absolutely adorable on a cake table or placed as individual favors for guests.

The wedding show went really well and was a great warm-up event for future wedding shows! I think Jen and I have perfected out table set-up and tear-down planning. :)

Zaca Mesa Wine Dinner

Friday night, The Lodge hosted a wine dinner for thirty guests. This was the first wine dinner we have offered in nearly a year and it was a night our guests are sure to remember. Those in attendance enjoyed a five course meal including Mussels, Cornish Hens, Mushroom Risotto Croquettes, Lemon Marinated Lamb and Point Reyes Bleu Cheese with Apricot Ginger Chutney. Executive Chef Lane Rosenberry perfectly complemented each course on his menu with a specific wine. The five Zaca Mesa wines offered were: Viognier, Roussane, Z Cuvee, Syrah and Late Harvest Viognier. Mike Ramsey traveled across the country to be the special guest speaker from Zaca Mesa. Mike and Lane visited each table throughout the evening and answered guest’s questions and further educated them on the vintages offered. The crowds favorite wine were the Roussane and Syrah; guests even ordered entire cases of wine to enjoy at home! This was the first wine dinner our new Beverage Manager, Jana Williams has hosted. Following this success, we are planning a beer dinner with featured beers from around the world and complementing finger food on the restaurant patio this June.

Golf Shop Talk

Every day we seem to get one step closer to golf weather! There are some great things happening now at Wilderness Ridge and we hope you can be a part of it! The calendar of events has now been rolled out for members outlining fun events for Men, Women, Couples and kids. There are member bulletin boards in both locker rooms as well as the CafĂ© that will outline all the upcoming events. For the month of April we are planning a fun 9-Hole Men’s night event called a “One Man Scramble”. Basically it is a scramble format with yourself! Following the event participants can take part in a fun Taco and beer dinner. In May we will follow that up with a 3 Club Challenge on May 19th. For non-members, the Professional Staff will be hosting a free golf clinic for children of parents serving in the Military. Governor Dave Heineman will be signing a proclamation on April 8th declaring April as the month of the military child. Wilderness Ridge is excited to be able to give back to our community and to the men and women that keep us safe.

Beginning in May the member match play event will begin as well as the regular Thursday night league. Sign up’s are steadily coming in to the shop. In addition to the match play, our first couple’s night will be held on Friday, May 14th. This is a fun 9 hole event followed by dinner on the deck. There will be at least one couple's event per month and in July there are two. The final couple’s event will be a glow “night” golf scramble in August on the Executive Course. And finally in May we are trying to start a ladies 9-hole social golf night for members. This is a fun night for ladies to play in a non-competitive game of golf and gather following the round. A few tee times will be held each week for those wishing to participate. There is no cost to participate for our lady members.

The complete calendar of events has been e-mailed to all members and any updates to the schedule will be passed on through the e-mail.
