OK Everyone...

It's time to get those registrations in!   I've got just shy of 50 people that have contacted me.  Last year, we had 98 registered as we went into the meet weekend.

Let's get on it everyone!

Newspaper ads, bill boards, tv commercials...  Let's get the word out there!  And, if you haven't contacted me, now is the time!  I even want to know if you are just coming for the day.

Don't make me come to your house!  :)  Everyone, pick 5 people and send them an e-mail to their account asking them if they have registered.  Have some fun, and get people excited!  The meet is almost here!

It's going to be great this year!

FYI
I'm going to bring some firewood this year.
Also, for inspiration, for those that need it, watch the DVD from last year. I just did AGAIN!

For those coming from the South/SouthWest of Red Wing.  I fell victim to the routing of the Google Maps last year, and I know others did as well, that routed us through Northfield, MN, Cannon Falls, MN to Red Wing.  

(While the route through Northfield may be slightly shorter via Mileage, it will take you longer to get to Red Wing, and you'll be stuck on 2 Lane Hwy's longer than you will using the route below.)

I don't know about you guys, but once I'm up to speed, the last thing I want is to be constantly be slowing down on a 2 lane highway.

I-35 North to I-90 East  (Interstate)
I-90 East just North of Albert Lea, MN to Hwy 63 North (Stewartville, MN)  (4 Lane Hwy)
Hwy 63 to Hwy 52 North (Southern part of Rochester)  (Interstate to 4 Lane Hwy)
Hwy 52 North (at Zumbrota , MN) to Hwy 58 to Red Wing, MN  (2 Lane Hwy for last 23 miles to Red Wing, and no towns after Zumbrota to slow you down.)

This route also puts you into downtown Red Wing 2 blocks from the bridge over the river...the other route had us North of Red Wing and coming back into town.

Google Maps appears to have pulled up the correct route for me this year:

That looks really good. I hope it is right!

Dont let the numbers get anyone down. Last year there were a lot, but fewer doesnt make it less fun if you ask me.

Ha!  Yes Jim,  I am aware that I need to get a list of the adgenda and needed items on the board.  I also realize that all of you die hard fans need to know what is needed so that you can contribute your items, skills, and abilities.

I must be honest...  I'm still grinding it out at the job, and still have to put in a full day tomorrow.  I expect that I'll be able to commit to meet planning ventures by Sunday.

As far as the count goes...  I currently have 78 reservations!  It's going to be really good!  Last year at this time, I had 98, so we are not too far off.  There are some good friends of the club that will be highly missed, but we always hope for next year.

The count is irrelevant to me and my crew.  Lawson is on the road as we toy around on the internet, driving to Phoenix from Glencoe, MN to pick up his CV-23 and me.  We should be arriving Red Wing Thursday and look forward to cruising the river, watching the barges come and go, and chatting with a bunch of friends I/we get to see only once a year. He will be logging over 4000 miles to make the show.  It would have been very simple to say we just can't make it.  He/we are making it happen for us.  I hope everyone else on this board can someday come to the annual meet. Life is short .... play as much as you can!  ;D

This event is yearly MUST SEE for me.
.. it is what it is ... and that is how it should be!

UPDATE:
As of today, I have 78 people registered.  6 parties will be bringing RV's (which is up from 4 last year) so we will have to squeeze them in where we can.  That's a good group, and there will be more that are coming for the day on saturday that haven't registered.

NEEDED ITEMS:Please consider the types of items that are needed to make group camping more comfortable.  Please feel free to sign up for any of the listed items, or bring other things that you have available.

1) Paper plates, cups, napkins, etc. (Paper is best as it can be burned).
2) Plastic cutlery
3) Table cloths or coverings with clips for the wind
4) Lawn Chairs
5) Tiki Torches / Citronella Candles
6) Projector and screen for kids movies
7) Awnings / Tents / Sun Screens, etc for shade and rain protection
8 ) Firewood - (or money to purchase wood. there is fire wood available at the campground for a fee.)
9) General tool kit, spot lights, backup up fuel cans, emergency gear.
10 ) Coolers with bottled water / beverages
11) 2 turkey fryers with propane and frying oil


I'm interested if you can think of otherthings that I should post.  Please reply if you have any of these things, or are willing to bring them.

Thanks!

REGARDING MEALS AND FOOD

I am happy to say that I will again be providing my famous fried chicken on Saturday evening after the run to Lake City.  I will have Fried Chicken and Jo-Jo potatoes for everyone!  Yummy!  I highly encourage everyone to make plans to attend that meal as it is one of the highlights of fellowship for the group.  If at all possible, if you are coming for the day, plan to stay thru the meal and get to experience the group atmosphere around the meal.

Regarding the other meals at the event...  all of the other meals at the Glastron Classic are informal.  Please review the event schedule located here...  http://www.cgoamn.com/75.html

I would like to ask that we have these meals as bring something for yourself, and something to share with the group.  For example, breakfast and social time on Saturday is at 8:30am.  Something nice would be a bunch of banana's and a few loafs of coffee cake.  If each person brought something for themselves and enough for 4-6 others, we would all have a great selection of items, and no one would be overwhelmed with extra responsibility or cost.

Saturday lunch will be picnic style on the beach at Hok-Si-La campground in Lake city.  

Please let me know if you have any questions!

I like bananas and muffins, but 800 miles one way by myself is going to be tough to bring much in the way of food. Are there deli/bakery facilities close?
