Cruise the Mississippi at Minneapolis

Thursday, August 17th from the Bohemian Flats' landing;

Check in begins at 11:30 AM, name tags are ready for those who registered.  The boat sails at 12:00 so late comers will watch the wake.  Please consider car-pooling with former co-workers.

We will be aboard the Minneapolis Queen for an hour and 1/2 so there is ample time to chat with friends and take photos as we see the shoreline and skyline of Minneapolis.  We will see the historic Stone Arch Bridge, the old milling district, the new I-35E bridge, and the St. Anthony Falls area.

There is a cash/snack bar available should you want to lunch between taking pictures. Some information is also available at http://www.twincitiescruises.com/mississippi-river

Detail planning by the board, event coordinator is Club President Keith Behnke, keithbhnk@comcast.net. Thanks to Tom Turba for the venue selection.  Boat and Stone Arch Bridge pictures copied from Twin Cities Cruises web site.
