Pre-Fest Notice

The Fest Call was put out by Chuck Moe the Sleaze King....

OK (im)patient Rusties, here's the first announcement for the Somerset RustFest!!
Trump's Deluxe Grill & Bar (all ages welcome)
317 Main St.
Stillwater, MN
(612) 439-0024

Stillwater is about 10 miles west of Somerset, on the beautiful St. Croix River. Main St is the main north-south street through downtown (aka Hwy 95). I'll post more exact directions later.

Friday, August 1, 11:00-1:00
This should get us to River's Edge at Somerset in plenty of time for Neil's hoped-for (Please Neil!) early solo performance.
Looking forward to meeting a bunch o' rusties next week,

Safeway Cart's Fest Report

(Also see the Show Reviews)

I got back a five days ago and I am finally getting around to doing this. I love telling people about this trip, but it so much work to put it down in print. I sure hope somebody finds this interesting.

I flew from Winnipeg to Minneapolis on the morning of Friday, August 1st. Chuck Moe the Sleaze King (he sure does live up to his handle ;) was at the airport to take me to the RustFest at Trump's Deluxe Grill & Bar in Stillwater, MN. It was a good time and we had a very nice view of the St. Croix River. I can't name everyone one who was there, so I will just say they were a fun bunch to get together with. What ended up happening with the three guys who drove out from Roseau, Minnesota? Did you get the van fixed? (On their way from the fest to the show it broke down, so they missed Neil's solo set.)

After the HORDE show, of course we couldn't find a hotel with a room available anywhere near by, so we (Leo, Frank and I) stopped at a rest stop and spent the night in the truck.

Chuck, Leo, Frank, and Tom went way beyond the call of duty and I will never be able to thank you guys enough. I will find some way to repay you, whether you like it or not! ;)

Wanda's Mini-Report

Here is this rustie's report on the Somerset H.O.R.D.E. Festival. In a word: WOW!

But I'm getting ahead of myself. At 11 am 13 rusties and friends gathered at Trump's bar and grill in Stillwater, MN, 10 miles from the H.O.R.D.E. site, and a very nice time was had by all. Thanks to Chuck Moe the Sleeze King for organizing us once again.

Chris Hager's Mini-Report

Just a quick note from the MSN terminal here in Somerset, WI. Had a great time at today's RustFest. Met several rusties: Chuck Moe the Sleaze, Kurt from Winnipeg, Nancy Jo (a.k.a. Wanda), Derek and Sam, to name a few.
