Plans are underway for the 2015 All Mitsubishi Cookout and Car Show. The All Mitsu Cookout is a once a year show for all Mitsu built vehicles. There is no car show like this anywhere and no bigger Mitsu event in the Upper Midwest!

This year's event is happening on Sunday, August 23rd from 11am to 4pm. We have a brand new location. It will be at Ramsey Central Park, in Ramsey, MN. This park offers a large paved parking lot and a really nice pavilion right next to the parking lot. There is also a fair number of trees around the lot for some shade. There are bathrooms attached to the pavilion also. It will be a great spot!

The official sign up for the Cookout and other details can be found at: 2015 All Mitsubishi Cookout and Car Show | Minnesota 3/S

We also have a Facebook event to get info from. It is at: https://www.facebook.com/events/456704797830421/

Come enjoy the day with your fellow Mitsu nuts!

When it comes time to finalize the car show categories, I will be using the official sign up list. To see who is signed up, go to: All Mitsu Cookout sign ups | Minnesota 3/S Also, keep in mind, I don't refresh this list every day. I only do it a couple of times a week.

Looks like we have 35 cars signed up now. If you know you are coming, what are you waiting for?

I also created a pdf version of the Cookout flyer. Might be easier for some of you to print or share this: http://mn3s.org/cookout-flyer.pdf

Looks like we have 59 people signed up as of today. If you know you are coming, what are you waiting for??

White Bear Mitsubishi is a main sponsor again this year. A big thanks to them for their continued support! I would love to have more sponsors. If you run a company and would like to support the All Mitsu Cookout, send me a message at [email protected] I'll let you know the details of sponsoring and what it gives you.

If we can secure at least one more main sponsor, I think I can keep the cost of the All Mitsu Cookout down to $5 a person.

Thanks,
Curt

I've updated the sign up page again. We are at 97 sign ups now.

Don't wait to get officially signed up. If you know you are coming, get signed up at: Subscribe to our Newsletters

In the next couple of weeks I'll be finalizing the categories. If you don't sign up, you may find your car is in the "Other Mitsu" class. :)

Also, several years ago Gearbox Magazine interviewed me about the Cookout. Its a good read at: An Unofficial History of the All Mitsu Cookout Its especially a good read if you want to cyber stalk me. :)

Looks like the sign ups are at 106 now. I updated the page. I also did some analysis of the sign ups. Here is the breakdown:

1g DSM.........5
2g DSM........11
1g 3/S.........4
2g 3/S........10
3g Eclipse....10
4g Eclipse.....7
StarQuest......5
EVO 1-9.......16
EVO 10........17
Ralliart.......7
Others........14

I will be making decisions on the classes for the show next week. For groups with 7+ cars, we will have a category for you. If you have 10+ cars, we'll have a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place trophies. Those with 7-9 might just have 1st place. If you have less than 7 cars, you may get lumped in with another group. So if you want to see your platform with its own class, help me get some more of them signed up!

If you haven't signed up yet, the sign up page is at: Subscribe to our Newsletters

Thanks,
Curt

Only 2 weeks left! We are up to 130 sign ups. Here is the list: All Mitsu Cookout sign ups | Minnesota 3/S

If you haven't signed up, what are you waiting for?? The sign up form is at: Subscribe to our Newsletters

With the additional sales of t-shirts, and the sponsorship provided by White Bear Mitsubishi, we will be able to keep the price of the All Mitsu Cookout at $5. This includes you and your car in the show and all the food and drink. Each additional person who wants to eat is also $5

If you didn't pre-order a t-shirt and are still interested in one, I do have some extras. They will be sold for $20 a piece and will be a first come, first serve basis, on the day of the show.

Thanks,
Curt

Looks like we are up to 136 sign ups!

It is time to start thinking about your car sign. To save time at the Cookout, you can download and fill out your car sign before the show. Just fill out everything except the car number. You'll get that at the show. Its hard to remember your mod list when you are sitting at the registration table. So do it early. Here is a link to a blank car sign:

Here is my example sign to look at:

Only 4 more days until the Cookout. We are up to 155 signups: All Mitsu Cookout sign ups | Minnesota 3/S

It is not too late to get signed up and come join us for an afternoon of Mitsu fun. The All Mitsu Cookout is coming up this Sunday, the 23rd. We have some great prizes donated by Advance Auto Parts and White Bear Mitsu. We also will have plenty of food, and some fun stuff like the Mitsu trivia contest and the Slow Drags.

Here are some reminders:

1) Sign-up online. The page is at:
Subscribe to our Newsletters

2) Fill out your car sign ahead of time. It saves a lot of time in the registration line. Download the sign at:
http://www.mn3s.org/car-sign.doc

And my example sign can be found here:
http://www.mn3s.org/car-sign-curt.doc

3) Bring some lawn chairs for hanging out and bring your appetite! We'll have plenty of food.

Also, if you are just coming to spectate, spectator cars (non Mitsus) will have parking lot next to the main lot.

Its only $5 for you and your car to be in the show and eat. Why not make the trip out to Ramsey Central Park!

Thanks to everyone that made it out to the All Mitsu Cookout on Sunday. It was a little windy and cool but it didn't stop anyone from having a good time. A big thanks to White Bear Mitsubishi for being our main sponsor again. Your cars looked great on display. We also had some prizes donated from Advance Auto Parts, Upscaled Designs and Lance Bennett. Thank you! Also thanks to my very hard working volunteers. Especially Collin, Mike and Heidi. You three were there early, worked the entire show and were the last ones there at the very end. THANK YOU all!!

We had 124 fully registered Mitsus in the show. If you add the Mitsus there on display, but not registered, the total was about 140 cars. If we could get the 20+ Mitsus in the spectator lot to join us, it would be even bigger. :)

I have the Cookout page finished with pictures from the show and pictures of the trophy winners. Enjoy: 2015 All Mitsu Cookout | Minnesota 3/S
