The Great River Road is calling!  We'll depart the Twin Cities late morning on Friday en route to Marquette, Iowa where we'll stay the night.  On the way we'll explore the small towns and back roads that make up the river valley.  Dinner will be at a classic supper club in Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin.  

On Saturday we'll head to the Amana Colonies in Iowa.  These seven German villages are recognized as National Historic Landmarks and feature hand-crafted products (including beer and wine).  Read more at www.amanacolonies.com.  Dinner will be at a classic German themed restaurant in downtown Amana.  After a leisurely Sunday morning, everyone will head home as their schedule requires.

Various lodging options have been arranged for the trip.  After you book your general registration on MotorsportReg, you also need to call the hotel/B&Bs of your choice to book rooms.
