    Thanks

    Becky - CSOAF


    (click above to read the details)

    Accept our invitation to participate in the CSOAF Annual RBMAD on June 30, 2019.

    Since its inception CSOAF has been adamant in connecting Military oriented organization with the public, local veterans and active duty military through RBMAD.

    RBMAD brings the history of our great military to the public, a learning experience for the young by seeing and touching actual history.

    We at CSOAF (Citizens Supporting Our Armed Forces) would like to invite you to our 11th Red Bull Military Appreciation Day on Sunday June 30th, at Central Park in North Branch MN.   The time of the event is from 9:00 am until 3:00 pm, with set up starting from 7:00 am.  

    We are excited that Rockie Lynne will again be doing his concert at noon June 30th.  We also have an added concert that will start about 10:30 that morning with Sailor Jerri where she will sing her version of Alleluia. 

    Please let us know if you can attend this year with any information you would like to share about your organization and any vehicles that you can bring.  The vehicles are always a hit and I hope win in the car show.  We appreciate your participation in our event.

    Thank you for your support.

    Respectfully,

    Becky Schule

    the ceremony and make their way over to view the event. Following the
    ceremony, we will start up with the displays again until 2:00 p.m.

    We ask that everyone set-up between 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. You may set-up

    Red Bull Black Hills Run

    September 26,27,28th 2019 (Thursday, Friday and Saturday)

    Whitewood South Dakota

    This event is open to 10 vehicles, any MV up to probably a 1 ½ ton. It is a three day event in the northern Black Hills.

    Now see this:

    Send it out now!, you have until the middle of June to contact Lee.  Sorry, after that you can not attend.  Click the links, you will see why it fills up fast!  Great fun, better than on horseback, some say.  Ask about the ride share feature.  Join us.

    Thank you John, Lee

    We will start each morning at 9 am, stop for lunch along the trail or at a place of interest and be back to town around 3 pm. Most of the trails are low gear low range. The trails are not difficult but have challenging areas. You may get a scratch or your skidplate may rub, but no serious rock crawling.

    Show me:  https://youtu.be/t3Nz5qmrh3o

    I have Jeeped this area for many years. There are many breathtaking views, historic sights, and interesting things to see. I have a friend there who will guide us in the area and are lifelong residents of the Whitewood/ Sturgis area.

    John has a very nice collection of Military Jeeps, M37’s as well as other interesting vehicles. He is also an expert on the history of the Black Hills as well as George Armstrong Custers Travels in the Black Hills and will share his knowledge along the trail.

    Whitewood is roughly 600 miles west of Minneapolis. You will be responsible for the transportation of you and your vehicle to and from Whitewood, which most people will be travelling on Wednesday, September 25th, to Whitewood.

    How much fun?:  https://youtu.be/d_cjSzq6iLI

    Note that the riding in the Black Hills begins on Thursday, September 26th. There is a block of rooms at the Iron Horse Inn in Whitewood, rate will be $49.50 per nite for a 2 bed room. Or you can stay or camp elswhere on your own. This is an opprotunity to see a side of the Black Hills few get to expierience and with an excellent guide!

    I like it, sign me up!:

      

    Register here ----------- > null

    If this is of interest to you, here are the rules:

    Your vehicle must be in SOUND operating condition, and have a WORKING parking brake!

    I expect you to do a 200-300 mile shakedown run prior to the trip, things break down and I understand that, BUT there is no excuse for lack of maintenance. A clean fuel system is a must. Your fuel tank will get shook up, and if not clean, you will have trouble!

    You will also need a basic small parts supply for your vehicle, items like, Fuel pump, points & condenser.

    No special permits or license is required as long as your vehicle is street licensed and insured, you are good to go!

    Its late September. Be prepared for cool mornings and possible rain. We will have alternate trails if it rains, but not as much fun, LOL

    A Family Band GMRS radio is also required, cheap at most stores and will allow you to hear the history along the trails, as well as keep the group informed of trail conditions ahead.

    If you are interested in this event, contact:
