Dan and I regret that we will not be attending the MINNESOTA Rally this year due to Dan's health issues. He will be going in for a total right hip replacement.
There will be another total hip replacement after the right hip is healed. We will miss everyone and will be thinking of all the fun everyone is having. Thank You Tom and Kathy , Have a great time/

Wow! It's looking like it'll be a great group at the MN Rally! So happy so many of our friends are coming! It'll be great to see all again!

We're working on a final rally agenda(hopefully final) and will be posting that soon! 2 things to add to your schedule.

The old Barn Resort has a restaurant that is popular in the area. There is often reservations needed and a waiting list. For groups larger than 15, we did reserve their gathering room for Friday 8th, we have a room reserved for supper from 5:00-9:00 pm. We will start ordering about 5:30 and then meal should arrive about 6:00.
Because it's a group over 15 there's a separate menu.
Menu is choice of:

Sides of Cole Slaw and Beans
Water, pop, tea, coffee included
$15 +tax

Sat. night potluck is soup/chili (about 10 rigs at present).
Bring your favorite soup/chili to dazzle us all!
Salad, Bread, Coffee (bring your own coffee cup) and water will be provided along with table settings including bowls, silverware.
BYOB.... there are wineries in the area!
(at other soup/chili potlucks, people bring a muffin tin for "sampling"..... just an idea)
Right now there are 10 rigs registered and hopefully we'll have more join us.
