Here's a link for lodging around the area, better line up a room fast. The new motel in Le Center, Mn is nice, has a garage that goes with the room.

Dave,
They might have a garage to go with the room but they would probably frown on setting up shop for the weekend in it.
With the early spring weather arounf the area the grounds should hold up pretty good I hope. But, it is still early in the spring time.

I've had reservations at the Guardian Inn since last year. The reservation is in my friends name and they called him and said that they had closed and were converting to something else but since they had so many reservations for the weekend they would open up for those with reservations, only thing is all rooms have a king bed and they would have a rollaway bed .

Only 2 weeks? We've started loading the trailer twice for LeSueur but had to unload to haul more iron home. Need more trailers I guess.

Local weather forcast says 35 at night and 50 each day.
Rain chances are being called slight for friday-sat so far.
I will have a big load of junk ready to go after today. I always stick a small yellow MM flag 15 ft above my junk pile. Stop in and have a beverage and visit (my favorite part). I have a
10 X 20 ground canopy, extra chairs, and drinks
Tony

The gates opened around 3:00 instead of 5:30. This cleared out parking lot and road side congestion, and gave us more time to set up vending areas, a very good thing!
Once again, All the good folks at LeSueur put on a real good swap with very good help with loading heavy items...
Thanks a lot guys and gals!
I had a blast, just like a big family reunion or massive party with many iron hounds that you like to spend time with...what great fun!
Shouldnt we be doing this twice a year
Tony
