Update from the Red Bull Military Vehicle Association Board

Greetings all members and interested parties. The board has met via zoom on four occasions to prepare for the 2021 season. 

Highlights are as follows:

The Minnesota Red Bull has acquired a general liability insurance policy. We previously purchased the coverage thru the national MVPA but they withdrew coverage to affiliate members on 1-1- 2021. This coverage protects our Group against liability claims arising from non-automobile related claims. It is a requirement for several of our events to prove evidence of this coverage. Effective 3-1-2021 coverage is bound with Hagerty Insurance Group, $350 annual premium. 

The 2021 event schedule is still being formulated.

With that said our season will kick off with our annual meeting Saturday, May 1st, 10 AM at Wayne Mincke’s, South St Paul, facility. We will communicate an agenda prior to the meeting. If anyone has any agenda items they would like to have addressed, please reach out to me, Eric Thompson, current MN Red Bull Military Vehicle Association, phone 612-940-9049, email 

Plan on attending as it has been way too long since we have been together.

May 15 thru May 23rd is the Twin City Auto Show at the State Fairgrounds. We are working with the auto show to have a significant turn out. While they are in the planning stage as well, I have been informed that there will be a military appreciation day. We should all plan on attending that date along with possibly the opening day. Standby for further information as we get nearer the date.

June 19, Fort Snelling Cemetery.  Final respects at the funeral of George Weiss, cofounder of the Fort Snelling Memorial Rifle Squad. Steve Landgraf has asked us to save the date as he works on details for our group to show up in honor of this man.

July 23-25 Camp Hastings Little Log event. Save the date more information to follow.

July 28 thru August 20th is the MVPA Cross Country Convoy AKA Yellowstone Trail. It starts July 28th, in Aberdeen, South Dakota.  You may wish to do only leg of the convoy.  John Varner is the event coordinator. Reach out to John or email or call 1-800-365-5798 for more information. There is an informative article in the History in Motion magazine December/January issue, page 32. Sign-up deadline is May 1, 2021

Lastly Mark Fisher, Event Coordinator, will be posting other events as they come up. If you have any suggestions for events, please contact Mark.

As usual, any feedback, as long as it is nice, is appreciated.

Please reach out to me Eric Thompson 612-940-9049 or email 
Stay calm and carry on!
