    Well here we go again ladies and gents and ladygents! I know that it's only February and it is just barely starting to warm up outside, but it's time to start thinking about having the windows down and the sweet smell of catless exhausts consuming the interiorz!

    So we've got a date for the cruise and it's Saturday, August 19th!!


    What is it and what is to be expected!?....

    The LaXCruise is a lengthy Subaru enthusiast driven cruise to LaCrosse, Wisconsins' Copeland Park where we have a HUGE shelter rented to park the cars under to protect us from the summer heat or rain!
    It is a family oriented cruise that was thought up 11 years ago that allows us to enjoy a long drive accompanied by a BBQ, raffle with Subaru inspired prizes, games/shenanigans, and also camping for those of us that like to make a night of it and carry on the fun into Sunday! Plan on a beautiful drive to WI, accompanied by great friends, a chance to admire others' Subies, awesome prizes donated by our sponsors that promote Subaru love in MN, food and games!
    To add to the goodies, some of our local Subaru Ambassadors are putting together some swag prize packages to hand out via the raffle to a few lucky winners as well!

    ***In order to really make it work, we need people to get signed up early and clear their calendars!***

    ***If using Paypal to make payment, plz send to: jstorlie1211@yahoo.com
    Make sure that you put your screen name in the "Notes" section along with LAX so that i know it's for the cruise and to identify who you are! I know your screen names, but when it says Joe Blow sent me $15, it's hard to figure out who you are.(unless your real name and screen name are one in the same). :D***


    ***Cash payments can be made with arrangement. I can usually meet you at Stouts or Surly in NE Minneapolis for the Tuesday night meets (Please PM me if paying cash)***
    COST!?----$15/adult and $5/child will be the amount to get lunch and raffle tickets to partake in the raffle! Pre-paying IS a requirement and is non-refundable! I can't afford to take on the costs out of my own bank account! The raffle, as many of you already know, is comprised of some pretty great stuff! The money collected will help cover the shelter rental, food and some of the prizes/entertainment!




    \/\/\/'Soft' Itinerary (may be some additions)\/\/\/

    Saturday-August 19th

    *8am-Arrive at Inver Grove Heights Walmart in the North parking lot. Smooze and grab your cruise route info and raffle tickets and prepare yourself for a day of Subaru bliss!

    Location address:
    WalMart
    9165 Cahill Ave, Inver Grove Heights, MN
    (We meet on the north side of the building closest to Concord)

    *9am-We leave promptly at 9am to ensure that we arrive just before lunch time. This allows myself and other volunteers to get food ready (if there is no caterer)and get stuff set up and also get the mass amounts of Subarus parked!

    *11:30am-Arrive at Copeland Pavillion in LaCrosse, park cars, set up, and get ready to eat!!

    *12pm-Lunch time! Omnomnom.
    This will be a hot lunch that will be catered in and ready upon arrival.


    *1-1:30pm-Games and Subie fellowship...check out the cars!!

    *2pm-Around 2ish, we will begin the raffle and start giving away subie goodies and or subie-
    related goodies thanks to our local sponsors! You don't want to miss it!!:thumbup:


    **After the raffle (3pm):
    We have the shelter until 7pm, so we can hang out and enjoy the summer day and the mass amount of Subarus into the early evening. After the raffle, you are pretty much able to do whatever you'd like, whether it be head back to the cities, drive up to Grandads' Bluff to enjoy the sunset, or just hang and enjoy eachothers company!

    We will be heading to Goose Island Campgrounds in the early evening to get tents set up and have dinner for those that are feeling up to it (cost is about $18-$20/site)! We usually come up with some fun night time activities for those that stick around Saturday night, and caravan back together or in small groups on Sunday morning before or after Perkins breakfast. We may have a Sunday cruise up WI. Hwy 35 this year, details to come!

    If you are new to the forum, i HIGHLY recommend that you attend this event and get to know some of your fellow MNSubaru members. Finally put a face/name to the screen name that you have seen trolling about since you've joined! lol

    To sign up, post your screen name and the number of guests that you'll be bringing along!! We also need to get a head count for camping, so please include "camping" or "no camping". Thanks!

    Below is the example of how you should sign up:

    tangledupinblu+2 (Camping) or (no camping)

    Great timing. I was just looking through pictures of last year's 10th Anniversary bash and found some never-before-seen-by-anybody-else pics I must share, so that any newcomers this year understand what they're getting themselves into.

    On the way down:

    For any other new folks on here who are on the fence, I'll put in a good word for the event. Last year was my first cruise, and it was great. It's super low key and everyone is friendly and welcoming. Plus... since most of us here have at least a little interest in cars, there is always something to talk about.

    If you're wondering if you should go, sign up! Meet some folks and be jealous of some of the awesome rides that the community has. That said, I am hoping I can clear the calendar to join again this year. I request no monsoons.

    Put me down as tentative.

    If all goes well, this may also be the reveal of my build.

    Really hoping it's broken in by then, but you know how builds go.

    BUMP for summer fun!

    Also...if you know that you are for sure going this year, could you please do me a favor and get signed up and pay!? :)
    The shelter went on my credit card and I don't want to pay interest for setting this cruise up each year! :p

    Thanks!!

    Fugg it, count me in. No camping. I skipped out on the 2016 cruise since I only had my bugeye for like 3 weeks.

    Josh, I'll PM you about paying in cash.

    I like the idea of a cruise up 35 afterward. I'll be heading that direction to get home in the morning so it'd be cool to have some company on the way.

    Payment sent for Krazylegz1485, plus 2 (wife and new child!). Definitely no camping, sorry.

    Also, as an incentive for any forum noobs on here that are on the fence about going, I sent a little extra to cover the cost of one adult.

    With that said, the next person to sign up that has never gone on the cruise before will get that spot for free. My only stipulation is that it goes to a driver and not just somebody that wants to ride along (to promote a bigger car count, of course!).
