    We had a wonderful day weather wise (mostly overcast in the mid to upper 70s in the AM the clouds parted for part of the afternoon may of reached the 80, with a slight breeze all day. But it manage to rain fell just around dinner time). 

    There was only two of us for the convoy down to Camp Hastings this morning (Louie and I). Uneventful trip down there nice drive down thru the old defunk Badger Arsenal. Louie stated that his MB was reading a little warm running down there, but felt it my be due the older radiator (he'll change that out, and should be good to go).

    Lee Larson brought his M715 and managed score a M101 3/4 ton trailer, to take home (nice project for him).

    Don Gunderson brought his M416 1/4 ton trailer and a generator (sorry didn't catch the norm. for it). The good news is the Generator, is for sale.

    We would like to Thank CAF for the loan of the M37 next to our tent!

    Photos are posted on FaceBook!

    I have been informed that if want good choice of display spots, we should get there before 0730! Just a suggestion.


    Than again Louie, has another plan. Meet in the parking lot south of the McDonalds at Nicollet Ave S & American Blvd W in Bloomington, Minnesota at 0800! Than convoy down as a unit to Camp Hastings.

    We can have up to 8 Vehicles (Red Bulls) - 2 (CAF) in the machinery hill area.

    Parade staging area 3 to 4 Vehicles (CAF). There is no good logistical way to get vehicles from Machinery Hill to the start of the Parade. 

    Red Bulls will get 16 adult gate passes.

    Vehicles will meet out on Energy Parkway (Details to follow) at 0600 [6 AM for those have not learn to tell time]. Than proceed by convoy into the fairgrounds. I have asked if we can park where we were last year, from the Minnesota National Guard on that corner (under the shade trees)!

    Vehicles may depart after 1600 (4 PM).

    Stay tune for more details...

    AirExpo 2016 is located in the new South Hangar Area at Flying Cloud Airport. Please disregard signs you may see for AirExpo Parking; they are intended for the general public only. Instead, vendors will be entering and leaving the show grounds through Gate J on the southwest side of the airport. The best way to reach this gate is southbound on Flying Cloud Drive (County Hwy 61), proceed past the Control Tower Entrance

    to the next signal light, and turn north onto Charlson Road.

    Follow Charlson Road about 0.4 miles to Gate J, turn right, and you are at the Vendor/Exhibitor Entrance.

    If you have not received your show credentials, they will be issued Friday when you set up.

    REMINDER: Absolutely no set-up is allowed on Saturday. 

    For Saturday arrangements have been made to go in gate 'A' (off of Flying Cloud Dr than follow directions, from ground crew), between 0730 and 0830!

    Questions please call
