A Cruiser Convention is scheduled for June 9-12, 2011at Treasure Island Casino Campground near Red Wing Minnesota. The primary purpose of the rally is a chance for Cruiser owners to get together and share upgrades, modifications, problems, solutions, decorating ideas, etc. Hopefully that explains why the convention is limited to Cruisers only.

This is a first attempt at an agenda:

Thursday, June 9 - Check-in and set-up. Supper at the casino which happens to be their seafood buffet night (4 - 10 P.M.). If you have to go out and hunt beer cans in the ditch to pay for it, this is one meal you won't forget!

Friday June 10 - Tour of Red Wing shoe factory (10:00 A.M.)

A chance to see one of America's most popular footware in the making
Lunch?????
Tour of Red Wing Shoe museum
http://www.roadsideamerica.com/tip/20854
This is a completely different location and it's claim to fame is the size 638-D actual leather boot on display inside the building.
If you are interested in touring more points of interest, there is also a tour available of the Red wing pottery factory which is close by.
Pot luck supper????

Saturday June 11 - (10:00 A.M.) - Tour of National Eagle Center, Wabasha, Mn
http://www.nationaleaglecenter.org/hours-admissions-directions/
You have to see this to believe it. Outstanding hour long lecture with actual live Eagles sitting right in front of you. Kids will love it. Many opportunities for photos with the live eagles.
Lunch???
1:00 P.M. - ?? - Cruiser tour. Chance to show off your modifications, upgrades, changes, decorating ideas. Even if you have not changed one thing on your Cruiser you may come away with modifications that you like, have seen first-hand, and had a chance to talk with the person that actually did the modification.
Supper????
Sunday June 12 - Go home

All the sites are full hook-up. Free shuttle to the casino. Current rates are $25/nite for 50 amp so it is one of the best RV parks around at the best price. There are sites available right next to a shaded grassy area with fire pits. They are considered "premium" sites and go for $30/night but are 30 amp. The campground is all paved with a pavilion and a shaded grassy area for B.S. session. We have access to the pavilion for pot luck or any possible rain changes in activities. They also provide free access to the hotel swimming pool and spa.


If you would like more info on the campground:
http://www.treasureislandcasino.com/stay/stay-rvPark/

If you would like to attend, please call the campground to make reservations:

1-651-267-3060
The campground has the sites reserved under "Cruiser convention"

Reservations should be made prior to May 24, 2011 to make sure you get in the Cruiser line-up. If you do make reservations, please let me know with a PM or post a reply here.

SOBs (Some Other Brand) are welcome but asked to park in adjacent areas to allow all the Cruisers to be grouped together.



At this point I'm looking for any ideas or suggestions and of course anybody that would like to assist in any way possible.
Ken

Ken,



Sounds like a good idea. Count us in. We'll call and register for the campground.



Thanks for putting this together. I'm very eager to see all the different mods that cruiser owners have put in their 5ers.



Can't wait.



Greg and Deb

Heck, that's almost in my front yard. I think it's a wonderful idea, and we are definitely considering it. Will let you know in a few days.

GREAT IDEA!! We need to check work schedules. We saw the 638-D at THE State Fair a few years ago. Hope to make it.

Hey Ken,



We paid our camping dues for the Cruiser Convention this morning. We had to wait a little bit until Deb found out that she could take Friday off. She did, so we'll be there Thursday evening. We are really looking forward to this event. Should be fun. We'll be in site A3.

....A year too early and many dollars to little, as we spent the time and money going to the "sunny South" this past winter. And to make matters worse, only 7 days of sunshine, 70 degereesin 2 months.
Perhaps, next year.
