2017 Spring Cruise/Mystery Run

Saturday, May 6th was a bright spring day, with a deep blue sky and a light breeze. We joined the Sedan Delivery Club for its annual Mystery Run -  a sort of scavenger hunt on wheels.  126 vehicles joined the fun - everyone was welcome - wending their way through some beautiful scenery north of the Cities. We started out at Roger's Rods and Customs in East Bethel and ended at KJ's Refuge Bar and Grill in Orrock. There were three stops with games along the way for participants to try to win points - all rigged to ensure difficulty.  Loads of fun for all.
