This will be the seventh year for this big event.  The All Mitsu Cookout is the LARGEST Mitsubishi event in the Upper Midwest!!  Come join in on the fun!  The Ellingson Car Museum in Rogers will again be the location.

Brookdale Mitsubishi will be sponsoring the All Mitsubishi Cookout and Car Show again this year.  They have done a great job supporting the enthusiast community.

Who: owners of 3000GT, Stealth, Eclipse, Talon, Laser, Galant, EVO, Lancer, Starion, Conquest, Mirage, Diamante, Colt, Cordia, Avenger, Sebring coupe, Stratus coupe, and all other Mitsubishi made vehicles.

What:  A cookout and car show for all Mitsubishi made cars.  We'll supply the food, and give away some kick butt prizes.  Trophies will be given out for 1st through 3rd places in many different categories.  Also I'll be doing the Mitsubishi trivia contest.

Where: At Ellingson Car Museum in Rogers, MN.  The car museum has a nice grass lot behind the building for us to display our cars.  Map to the museum.

When: Sunday, August 21st, 2005 from 11am to 4pm.

Why: There are a lot of Mitsubishi enthusiasts in the area.  This gives us a chance to get together for a once a year event like none other anywhere.

We had well over 100 Mitsubishis attend this event last year.  We'll be expecting around 120 cars this year.  Check out the last six years events:

The price for the Cookout will be $5. This gets you and a guest into the Cookout with your car and all the food you want.  You can pay the day of the show, but it speeds up the registration process if you pay before the day of the show.  If you want you can send a check:

We'll be handing out trophies again this year.  There will be a first, second, and third place trophy given out for each category except for the Cleanest Car Overall.  Only a first place for that one.   The "other" category may be lumped in with another category if there isn't enough cars for it.  Here are the Categories.

Best 90-94 DSM
Best 95-99 DSM
Best 00-05 Eclipse/Stratus coupe
Best 91-93 3/S
Best 94-99 3/S
Best Evo *
Best Classic Mitsu (89 and older)
Best Other Mitsu *
The "Gene Helms" Cleanest Car Overall

* The EVO and Other class may be lumped together if there isn't enough registered to fill a class.

This year we'll be using FRS radios to announce prize winners through out the day and also to make other announcements.  So if you have an FRS radio with subcodes, bring it.  We'll be using channel 7.

Looking for a hotel room?
These are probably your three best choices.  I think Americinn was the favorite from last year.  That would be my first choice.

21800 Industrial Blvd
Rogers, MN 55374
Its a basic hotel, but they do have a pool and are located only a mile from the Cookout.
Super 8
21130 134th Ave. North
Rogers, MN 55374
I've been in this hotel, and its considered a no thrills hotel.  Its within walking distance to the Cookout.  Less than 1/2 mile.  A nice Denny's restaurant next door too.
Hilton Garden Inn
6350 Vinewood Lane
Maple Grove, MN 55311
A little more upscale than the others.  Has a pool and some other amenities.  Its about 9 miles from where the Cookout is going to be.  Its also closer to major shopping and restaurants.

Or if you really want to save a few bucks, you can camp.  There is a campground about 5 miles away:

Koa Minneapolis NW Campground
10410 Brockton Ln N
Maple Grove, MN 55311-1003
Phone: (763) 420-2255
