    Well here we go again ladies and gents and ladygents! I know that it's only March and it’s just beginning 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!:D

    So we've got a date for the cruise and it's Saturday, August 10th! Thanks to Steve and Dahl Subaru of LaCrosse for teaming up with us for this event!!


    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 12 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!


    ***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, please Private Message me and i’ll send you the PayPal address.***

    -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.(Please PM me as well 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 10th

    *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 4pm, 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 each others 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. As always, we may have a Sunday cruise up WI. Hwy 35.

    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! Bring a friend, a family member, or your dog!

    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)

    ***See post #2***


    **********Looking forward to another great year!!:coffee:***********

    I think I figured out a solution. Madison is half way to LaCrosse and I had hoped to get a cruise going from here anyways. I propose we do Fl4tfest in the am, bolt right after awards and cruise to the campground for some MN Subaru shenanigans with some new peeps.

    Yeah the big events here are Chitown Subaru Big Meet, Subiefest Midwest, Subaru Nationals, Fl4tfest, Subaru Speed Expo and probably some other crap too.

    For the 3rd year in a row I'll say I'm attending, but it really comes down to the status of my car. The past two summers were plagued with blown motors. So put me down please, tentatively. :D

    So although I can’t attend the cruise and lunch, I will be driving up from Fl4tfest for camping festivities with a group of Subaru hooligans, numbers TBD (maybe 10 cars or so). So please use my fee to pay for a new member, and plan on seeing me closer to dinner time :)

    Subie-roo (no cruise) +? only camping

    I'd like to go, I have been a member for a long time and never been to one. My ISO audit at work is August 12-13 (Monday Tuesday) I don't think I will be able to make it as I typically spend about 80 hours at work that week to ensure everything is good. If the audit gets moved, count me in, but I won't know until the day gets closer. It would be just me and no camping.

    Standard deal this year, tag me here if it's your first year and it's on me, +1 or more is fine. Campers STRONGLY encouraged, but camping is on you :)

    This is changed. We're still planning to stay overnight but want to get a hotel this time. My back doesn't agree with roughing it all that much anymore.

    So, if anyone wants to camp, we do have gear if you want to borrow it. Decent large 2 room tent and a queen air mattress :)
