Labor Day 2013

Hello MUM members,

It has been a while since you have heard anything from me, and that is not intentional. Well, it is kind of intentional, since there has not been much to talk about in the last four weeks.

On August 8, there was the Highway 60 run. I have heard reports that this was an excellent event and attended well.

The next event on the calendar is the Wheels and Wings Show in Osceola, WI. This is a really great event to attend because there is so much to see. Shine up your Mini and bring it to the event. If you want to arrive as a group, there is a plan to meet in the parking lot of the Square Peg early that day. Go to the web site at http://www.minnesotaunitedminis.com/events/view.aspx?Eventid=135 for all the details. If you are planning on attending, go to the Facebook event and indicate that you will be attending. As of this writing there are 13 maybes. If we had 13 cars, that would be AWSOM! There are a lot of cars at this event, so it will work best to arrive as a group if possible.

The following weekend is another run to Wisconsin starting in Hastings. The roads in that area are really fun to drive. For complete details go to http://www.minnesotaunitedminis.com/events/view.aspx?eventID=139.

Coming up on October 17 is the 2013 Fall Foliage Foray into the Far Far Forest of Badger Camp in Prairie Du Chein WI. This is a spectacular event and Rob has done a great job organizing this every year. It is also a great value for the money. For all the details and to register go to http://www.minnesotaunitedminis.com/events/view.aspx?Eventid=130.

Labor Day became a federal holiday in 1894. Labor Day is to celebrate "the strength and spirit de corps of the trade and labor organizations" in this country. All of us work very hard, so remember to play hard as well. This is Labor Day weekend, be safe and take time to smell the crank-case oil.
