1 June 2017 - 4 days and a wake-up!!!!!! 

27 April 2017:  Please take a moment to check out the revised itinerary below.  Due to a number of conflicts that have arisen with our original events, we have had to make some adjustments.  In short, the Fort Snelling tour has been moved from Friday to Wednesday, the Vikings stadium tour and Taste of Twin Cities tours have changed start times, but remain on original dates.  If you need to modify your plans and change the events you will attend, please contact Randy Groen at groenrandy@gmail.com.  Refunds will be honored if you need to cancel your participation in any event due to these changes.  We sincerely regret any inconveniences.

Look Who's Signed Up Already!
