Thanks to all of the members who helped prepare the field for the winter. Just a reminder that the field is always open for use, but some of the amenities you may be used to won’t be available over the winter. Also, we don’t snowplow the lot, so take that into consideration when planning your visit over the winter months.

Fagen Fighters WWII Museum
I’m considering a day trip to the Fagen Fighters WWII Museum in Granite Falls MN on Saturday December 7th. Interested members should contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I propose to meet at the Fort Snelling Park & Ride at 7:15 AM Saturday morning where we can ride share to the museum. We will depart the Park and Ride at 7:30 AM, and stop for breakfast in Norwood Young America, and should arrive at the museum around 11:00 AM. After visiting the museum, the group will decide
when and where to have lunch, then drive home. Hopefully we will all be home by dinner or shortly after. The drive to the museum and back is approximately 2 hours each way.
The museum is known for its collection of WWII aircraft, including a B-25, P-40, P-38, and P-51, and they are all flown! In addition there are a number of support aircraft and other military vehicles. If the weather cooperates, we may be able to witness some flights. Also, if we get a large enough group, I can request a guided tour.
Some highlights of the museum include a display depicting the Normandy Beach landing, featuring sand from Normandy beach, a boxcar transported here from Europe used to transport POW’s and Holocaust victims, a working WWII radio and General Bradley’s jeep.
Please indicate your willingness to attend by November 22nd.
