 PLEASE ONLY “JOIN” THE EVENT IF YOU ARE PLANNING ON GOING, WE NEED TO GET A GOOD COUNT.

We are planning on a 4 day 3 night overnighter run to Hill City, SD in the Black hills 27, 28, 29 and 30th of May 2017, so save the dates.

This is being setup and hosted by the Mini Club MiniCOW, Mini’s of Colorado and Wyoming.

The Black Hills are the home to Mount Rushmore, Deadwood, and Sturgis. We have a run setup on Iron Mountain road. 314 CURVES, 14 SWITCHBACKS, 3 PIGTAILS, 3 TUNNELS, 4 PRESIDENTS, 2 SPLITS in 17 MILES, with another run on Needles Highway. Some of the attractions, Mount Rushmore, 1880’s Train, Casino’s, Great Drives, Great food, Great Scenery. For comparison Tail of the Dragon is 318 curves in 11 miles.
We will be having a potluck picnic one evening, and a social gathering another evening. We have other ideas that we are working on.. more fun to come.

The hotel will be $107 for Saturday and Sunday night and then $89 for Monday night (average $101.00 a night). You can also make your own arrangements, at other hotels in town if you wish. As this is a tourist destination on a holiday weekend, it was hard to get any type of deal, as most places didn’t want to mess with a group as they will sell out anyway. Keep that in mind, so get your reservations at whatever hotel you want sooner than later. We will be staying in a different town with a different hotel this year this will give us better access to walk the main street in Hill City with lots of shopping, restaurants, other hotels, gas stations, and a car wash!!!

We would like a $10.00 donation per person to help with the costs of organizing the run. It would be helpful if we could get that done on departure morning.

We will have a goody bag for you, with maps, a schedule of events, and more. T-Shirts have been designed, and in the near future a website link will be given, so you can purchase your own. This way we can offer more options, and you get the shirts sent to your home before the event.

Meeting time will be 8:30am with a departure at 9:00am from McDonald’s, 4000 W College Dr, Cheyenne, WY 82007 (Just off of I-25 on the south edge of town)

 

Hotel Information:

We have the hotel lined up. You can also make your own arrangements, but generally the prices will be pretty close or more as this is a tourist destination. We will be staying in a different town with different hotels this year.
