I see they are offering the Art Museum tour ($50) on Saturday only - when we all want/need to be on the field for judging!  The museum is about 15 minutes down the freeway from the host hotel.  The first Thursday of the month admission is free, other days admission is $17 for adults.  Parking is $11 for 3-6 hours (sliding scale on how long you are there).  A group could carpool from the host hotel one of the days if there is interest.  Just a thought to throw out there.  :idea1:

If anyone is traveling through the Twin Cities the morning of July 5 on their way to Brookfield, please let me know.
Maybe we can get a small caravan together...

This event is completely new to me - so sorry for all the questions.  I'm combining a work, family and Buick trip, so I'm trying to nail down my schedule. I can just show up day of and buy a ticket for the fairgrounds, right? There is 65GS.com meeting somewhere and a BBQ right?

Dan,

The 65GS meeting is at the host hotel on Thursday: 4:30-6pm 65 Gran Sport Division - Moorland 4
The BBQ at Tony's is on Friday, starts 3pm: 3:00 pm  65Gran Sport Division BBQ Meat and Greet - Tony Solazzo

If you're just a spectator, I don't think you need to buy anything. You can park and walk into the hotel lot where all the cars are.
You need to register beforehand if you'll be going to the banquet or doing any activity that requires $$$.

Thanks for all the info.

Are there typically a lot of cars for sale at this event? I need to be prepared for any "impulse buys"  :icon_biggrin:
