TIME: 3pm to 10pm

START TIME: 3PM
BRIEF: Scenic river and lakeside cruise thru northern Minnesota followed by pizza, a campfire and an outdoor movie.
DETAILS: You are invited to make a drive from Maple Grove to points north and west on Saturday, April 21st. We will gather at the Target Maple Grove location (15300 Grove Circle N Maple Grove, MN 55369) and depart at 3 pm. Taking backroads and avoiding 94 we will travel through Rogers, Alberville and Monticello before visiting the Clearwater Travel Center as our first planned stop. The drive is nice with several lakes, rolling countryside and fast roads. We will make a spectacle of ourselves by driving through the heart of Monticello on our way to Otsego via CR39 which follows the mighty Mississippi. There is photo opportunity I would like to take a quick look at and a Cold Stone Creamery if there is interest. From there we make a run down Dayton River Road then on to Darin’s new place in Elk River. Pizza should be waiting on us by the time we get there (5:30-6 pm estimated). With 10 acres and a long driveway there is off street parking for everyone! Check out his “Speed Shop” and new hydraulic lift. Ask him to explain why he has three trucks (all Dodge of course) if he has a work vehicle and, if he gives you a good answer, please explain it to me! Enjoy some time together talking all things Challenger and Mopar and sit by the fire. We plan to screen the original Vanishing Point on a large outdoor screen when darkness falls. We will have chairs but please bring your own if you can so nobody is left standing. Adult beverages are welcome but it is BYOB.
