2016 All Mitsubishi Cookout and Car Show

Post by curt_gendron » Fri May 27, 2016 1:00 pm

Plans are underway for the 2016 All Mitsubishi Cookout and Car Show. The All Mitsu Cookout is a once a year show for all Mitsu built vehicles. There is no car show like this anywhere and no bigger Mitsu event in the Upper Midwest!

This year's event is happening on Sunday, August 28th from 11am to 4pm. It will be at Ramsey Central Park, in Ramsey, MN. This park offers a large paved parking lot and a really nice pavilion right next to the parking lot. There is also a fair number of trees around the lot for some shade. There are bathrooms attached to the pavilion also. It will be a great spot!

The official sign up for the Cookout and other details can be found at: http://cookout.mn3s.org

We also have a Facebook event to get info from. It is at: https://www.facebook.com/events/822088494564032/

Come enjoy the day with your fellow Mitsu nuts!

We are up to 106 sign ups now. The updated list is at: http://mn3s.org/wordpress/?page_id=1180

For any out of towners looking for a hotel room, I'd recommend the Regency Inn, in Anoka. Its a no thrills hotel, but it is also reasonably priced at $65 a night. We do not have any arrangement with them, but it would be cool to have the out of towners staying at the same place. Their website is at: http://www.regencyinnmn.com/anoka_mn_ho ... otels.html

I will also be planning a dinner the night before the Cookout for our out of town guests. Any Mitsu owners are also welcome to come. The dinner will be in the general area of the hotel. Stay tuned for that.

later,
Curt

We are up to 125 sign ups now. Here is the breakdown of car sign ups so far, by platform:

1G DSM... 10
2G DSM... 15
1G 3/S... 8
2G 3/S... 10
3G Eclipse... 7
4G Eclipse... 6
EVO 1-9... 15
EVO X... 23
Ralliart... 8
StarQuest... 5
9G NA Lancer... 10

In order to have a trophy category for a platform, we need to have at least 7 sign ups. So the 4G Eclipse and StarQuests are in jeopardy. So make sure to remind your Mitsu buddies to get signed up!!

Curt

I'm excited to announce that we will have tshirts again this year!! We will offer black shirts with silver lettering and a grey shirt with black lettering. They will be $20 again. Some of the money for each shirt will be going towards the Cookout budget. (that way we can keep the Cookout at $5) If you'd like a shirt, send me a PM with your color and shirt size or email me at [email protected]. They will be offered in S, M, L, XL, and XXL in mens. They will be Gildan Ultra cotton tshirts. You will pay for your shirt at the Cookout itself. And if you don't pick it up, it will be offered for sale half way through the event. Here is what the grey shirt looks like.

We are up to 150 sign ups so far. Here is what the categories look like so far:

1g DSM... 12
2g DSM... 19
1g 3/S... 8
2g 3/S... 11
3g Eclipse... 8
4g Eclipse... 8
StarQuest... 7
EVO 1-9... 20
EVO X... 25
Ralliart... 9
08+ Lancer... 10
Others... 8

I'll be finalizing the categories this week, but this looks to be the finalized list. I think we'll do just a first place for StarQuests. The rest of the categories will have 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place trophy. Then we also have a 1st place for Cleanest car overall. We also will have trophies for Long Distance and Slow Drags.

Thanks,
Curt

2) Fill out your car sign ahead of time. It saves a lot of time in the registration line. Download the sign at:
http://www.mn3s.org/car-sign.doc

And my example sign can be found here:
http://www.mn3s.org/car-sign-curt.doc

3) Bring some lawn chairs for hanging out and bring your appetite! We'll have plenty of food.

Also, if you are just coming to spectate, spectator cars (non Mitsus) will have parking lot next to the main lot.

Its only $5 for you and your car to be in the show and eat. Why not make the trip out to Ramsey Central Park!

Thank you to everyone who made it out to the All Mitsu Cookout this last Sunday. We had 125 registered Mitsus there and about 140 total Mitsus there. It was a great turnout considering at the start of the show it was still raining.

Big thanks to our main sponsor, White Bear Mitsubishi. Also Upscaled Designs and Adavance Auto Parts donated prizes which were much appreciated. Also thanks to all my hard working volunteers that made the show run so smoothly.

Here are the pics and trophy winners: http://mn3s.org/wordpress/?page_id=2821
