Second Annual ‘Auto Lieben’!

Sunday, July 31, 2016 – 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Again this summer, there will be a 2nd annual car show on the grounds of Afton Alps. The event will feature ‘show and shine’ for cars attending, food, vendor displays, photo opportunities and just a lot of low-key fun in a lovely setting.

Sign-up for an approximate head count but there is NO pre-payment required.

Cost will be $8 (cash only) at the gate upon entry, and the show is from 10 a.m. to  4 p.m., Sunday July 31. Proceeds will again be donated to this year’s charity choice.

Plan on food, beverage and a few dealerships on hand to show off their latest and greatest!  Plus, the charity will be bringing one of their large carriage horses to show, and possibly some special photo opportunities for a few owners with a car + horse.  There is hotel information for anybody coming from out of town or from the Dakotas, Wisconsin – just contact Jack directly at:

Directions: Take I-94 east, and exit on Manning ave. S. Travel south on Manning and take a left on 70th st/hwy 22. Continue on 90th st. until you reach Afton Alps. Drive down into the main ski valley to the check in booth and directed where to park.

Prez Sez . . . May 2016 Updates

Our busy 2016 season is in full swing, with a number of upcoming events. First Fling at BIR is now behind us and was a smashing success! It may also have been the nicest weather ever for First Fling. We maxed out our Driver’s Training school with 30 new drivers taking the class and qualifying to solo at our track events. Thanks to Ron Johnson and Jim Bahner for organizing the school and to the many volunteer Instructors who chipped in to make it happen. Unfortunately, we had to turn some people away, so be sure to register early now for the Last Fling Driver’s Training School in September if you missed out.

We had great participation for the Driver’s Education event on Saturday and Sunday, with lots of safe, fast fun. Kudos to Steve Meydell and Chuck Porter, our Event Masters, and Dave Anderson, our Registrar, as well as the volunteers who helped.

We hope to see you at one of these upcoming events! Paul Ingebrigtsen, Nord Stern President 2016

You can find the form on the club website (, or in the Newsletter. There are a number of local shops who can do the inspection for you. Don’t leave it until the last minute in case work needs to be done, parts ordered, etc.


Following National PCA Guidelines, 2005 dated helmets will be accepted at our driving events through June, 2016. After that you will need a 2010 or newer helmet.
