2017 All Mitsu Cookout

The All Mitsu Cookout was on Sunday, August 27th, at Ramsey Central Park, in Ramsey, MN. The weather was good, even though there was rain forecasted.  Even with the bad forecast we had a great turnout with 137 registered cars and about 150 total cars.   I’d like to thank our main sponsor White Bear Mitsubishi!  Advance Auto Parts donated a ton of prizes.  Half the registered owners walk away with something.  Upscaled Designs printed our t-shirts this year.  Big thanks to all our sponsors.  Also, thanks to all my hard working volunteers that make the Cookout work!  I really appreciate all you do to make this event run smoothly.
