    Hello Fans of British Iron,

    The Minnesota Scottish Fair & Highland Games is again, including a display of British cars and motorcycles at the Fair & Games to be held at the Dakota County Fairgrounds in Farmington, MN. This year it will occur on Saturday, May 19th, 2012

    In return for displaying a British car or motorcycle, we will provide two free passes per vehicle so the owners can enjoy an entire day of Scottish activity as well as being part of the British Car & Motorcycle Display.

    Please distribute the attached flyer to your membership so they will have the information needed to attend and display their vehicle.

    Thanks for your help. We hope to see you at the Minnesota Scottish Fair & Highland Games on May 19th.

    Best regards,

    Jim Harris


    **** THIS IS THE YEAR ****

    This year, you can attend both the Inter-Marque Spring Kickoff and the MN Scottish Fair &
    Highland Games. There is no conflict. The Fair will be held on Saturday, May 19, 2012.
    We are including in the 2012 Minnesota Scottish Fair and Highland Games, as we have for many years, a display of up to 40 British cars &
    now, motorcycles, representing vehicles that one might see now or might have seen in days gone by, on the roads and motorways of

    The Fair and Games are to be held at the Dakota County Fairgrounds in Farmington on Saturday, May 19th, 2012. We would love to
    have you display your car or motorcycle and be our guest for the day at the Fair & Games. Please visit our website to see all the wonderful
    things that will be going on.



    The Display is as it indicates, a display, not a competition. There will be no judging. However, there will be voting for a “People’s Choiceâ€
    award for Most Popular Car and Most Popular Motorcycle. You may stay by your vehicle and chat with folks or wander all over the Fairgrounds
    and take full advantage of all that the Fair and Games have to offer. It’s entirely up to you.
    We would like your vehicle to be in place by 8:30 AM and remain until 5:30 PM. We ask this because your car in the display is an integral part
    of the presentations of the Fair and not just part of a casual car and motorcycle show.
    The voting for “People’s Choice†awards will close at 4:00 PM. The awards will be given out during the closing ceremonies at 5:00 PM. You
    must be present to win. First Place will be a container of traditional Scottish Highland Nectar of the Gods. (AKA “Haggis Helperâ€)
    You are cordially invited to leave your vehicle in place and attend the Ceilidh in McCracken’s Pub on the Fairgrounds from 5:30 to 8:00 PM.
    As a thank you for your participation, we will provide you with two free passes to the Fair and Games.
    Please contact me if you have any questions and so that I can send you a registration packet and the free passes. We hope that all British car
    and motorcycle owners displaying their vehicles will register in advance in order to help with our planning. However, if you decide at the last
    minute to display your vehicle, you are still welcome if we have space available.
    We look forward to seeing you and your British car or motorcycle on May 19th.

    Best regards,
    Jim Harris, Chair
    British Car & Motorcycle Display
    Minnesota Scottish Fair & Highland Games
