    Hey guys,

    I know it's hard to beleive that this snow will be gone in a month, but with this warmer weather we are expected to have, I have no doubt that we will be able to launch our 2010 season in April like we have the last 2 years.

    As some of you that have attended one of these events, it has grown from a small gathering at Caribou with 30-40 cars to a montly showing of 400+ cars inside the Motorplex on any given First Saturday.

    In order to keep things organised, please try to arrive as early as possible (the event starts at 8am) so that you can get a parking spot. We have gotten to the point where we have to turn people away or ask them to park in spectator parking when they arrive after 9:30 because there is no room.

    Please keep the burnouts and hard launches for the track (May 1st). We need to be respectful of the property and our host as well as the garage owners that allow us to have our event at their place.

    Location:
    The location is the Minneapolis AutoMotorplex located at:
    1740 Motorplex Ct. Chanhassen MN

    Please check out the Motorplex’s website for map and other details: http://www.automotorplex.com/
    For people traveling east of 494 we would encourage you to take the Crosstown (62) extension (HWY 5) the where it becomes 212, exit on Powers Blvd (Which is 1 exit past 101) go right, drive approx 500 ft and turn left on Lyman (at the light) travel approximately 1 mile, turn right on Audubon and we will be 1.1 mile on the left.

    We had a fantastic turn out. Definately over 300 cars and a had the lot full by 8:30am.

    Next month will be a blast. We have a drag day at Rock Falls raceway planned immediately after Cars & Cafe (May 1st). There are already a long group of great cars signed up, so stay tuned for the thread on that coming soon.

    Thanks to all that made it out!

    Luis
