Buffalo Run 2018
Just a reminder that the Buffalo Run is still happening September 2.

The rally start and end is the AmericInn in North Branch, MN; we have a meeting room reserved for the Riders Meeting before and the Banquet at the end.
I've been told AmercInn no longer have rooms available, but there may be rooms available at other hotels in the North Branch Area, such as the Budget Host Inn.

I will be sending GPS coordinates of rally locations to all registered riders the Friday evening a couple days before the rally.
Final rider packets, with points and location details will be handed out the morning of.

RE: Buffalo Run 2018
There are a few campgrounds near North Branch, but most are going to be booked up by now, being as it's only a few weeks away and a holiday weekend. Wild River State Park looks to have one site remaining for Sat and Sun night.

Some more details for the rally:
The theme will be Trivial Pursuit.
The majority of the bonus locations will be be north of the metro area, west of 35, and east of 94.
It's a 10 hour rally, starting at 8 and ending at 6.

T-shirt people say they need one week.
So lets say August 23 to be safe.

RE: Buffalo Run 2018
I'll be emailing out GPS bonus locations Thursday August 30th.
This should help for anyone traveling out of state to rally central.
