Antlers Anniversaries

At the Antlers, we are always excited to host social groups because it allows us to share their special time. This year, we’ve provided lodging for a record number of weddings, anniversaries and family reunions, and have enjoyed meeting and learning about each of the people who come to stay with us.While hosting guests from Vail, Colorado and across the country (or world!) for social events is wonderful for us, we are even more excited when it is our condominium owners who think of the Antlers for their intimate events. It’s just one more way of showing the Antlers truly is a ‘home away from home’.This August Lowell and Carol Geithman will be hosting their family and closest friends at the Antlers for their 50th Wedding Anniversary. With the help of Pan for Hire, our in-house catering, and the Geithman’s own special drink, Cataba, we’re expecting a festive evening, celebrating their best memories of the last 50 years. However, the Geithman’s aren’t the only Antler’s owners coming up on 50 years together! The Antlers will also be host to Charlie and Helen Wachendorfer’s family when they celebrate their 50th in 2009.Congratulations to everyone who has celebrated a special event at the Antlers this year – we’re glad you’ve chosen to include us in your lifelong memories.

Conference Room – Summer Upgrades

With the sun shining and the beautiful summer weather now in Vail, the Antlers conference center has made some small summer upgrades to try and bring the outdoors in! We’ve added a fresh coat of paint to the walls and a splash of teal with new napkins. We’re also switching out our regular black skirted buffets for an all white color scheme, making the inside of the rooms even more light than with the wall of windows alone!Also look for new buffet risers and a summer beer offering to come to the conference center soon! As always, contact myself or Magda King to get your group in to see the Antlers summer upgrades!And when you’re not stuck in meetings – enjoy the true outdoors!(clowe@antlersvail.com; mking@antlersvail.com)

Colorado Children’s Chorale goes for "the record"

The Colorado Children’s Chorale is in Vail this week and once again the Antlers at Vail is playing host! The kids have a busy and pretty structured week (thank goodness). Even their pool time is scheduled. The kids decided to try for the record for the most people in the pool. Check out the movie. The sad thing is, they JUST missed the record.

Rocky Mountain Vacations Travel Agent

Each year Julie from Rocky Mountain Vacations spends Thanksgiving out in the Utah desert with her relatives. Apparently they have some sort of golf tournament. Hmmmm…. were they drinking?…………

Hi Chris,

As promised…the third annual Vail Antlers Ladies Wilderness Golf Tournament held Thanksgiving day on the San Rafael swell. I had everyone show off the logo this year! Thanks for the good times with the Antlers. And remember…don’t feed the wildlife.
