Minnesota Muni Weekend
The 11th annual Minnesota Muni Weekend is headed to Wisconsin for 2014.
(Don't bother trying to figure it out).
Activities are happening just outside of Hayward, Wisconsin, a mere
2.5 hour drive away. While (most of us) are headed there for a small
portion of the over 300 miles of off-road trails, the town is also
well known for their large variety of specialty and boutique shops
and, of course, the National Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame.

Base camp for the weekend is going to be at TCUC members vacation
destination, the Chevalier Chalet. There is plenty of floor space
available so just plan to bring a sleeping bag. There are even some
beds, so bribe Kim Chevalier with chocolate/wine/flowers to score one
of those.

Festivities will start Friday night. Details TBD.
Saturday we will ride as much as possible. Your mileage may vary.
Saturday evening we will do a big group dinner. Location TBD.
Sunday we will plan a handful of miles before heading home.

Anoka Halloween Parade
Anoka is the Halloween Capitol of the World, what better place to be in a Halloween Parade! This is a huge parade and quite a tradition for many families; there's tons of people throughout the parade route, and it's always a blast. TCUC members are encouraged to be creative and wear a Halloween costume instead of the normal TCUC blue Tshirt.
A few notes about costumes (from the parade organizers):
-- Creativity required.  Whenever possible, Anoka Halloween highly encourages the use of Halloween prop, colors of black and orange and PUMPKINS.
-- This year the Anoka Halloween theme is: PUMPKINS
-- No gore, blood, violent Halloween themes allowed. This is a kid friendly parade.
Chili will be served at the Jones' following the parade. Come warm yourself up after the chilly parade!
