I attended the annual truck-in of Northwestern Vanners at the Preston, MN fairgrounds on August 13, 14 and 15 for the first time. Upon arriving at the fairgrounds I was impressed with the appearance of, and the location of the site (downtown Preston).
The club members extended a great degree of hospitality, and by Saturday evening managed to get 36 vans registered. Friday night was bingo in the large enclosed building while Saturday morning was the usual show-n-shine and bright-n-shine that evening. Saturday evening the band was going strong. I can’t remember whether they were called the Lug Nuts, Head Bolts or something like that. I can say its hell to get old, while trying retaining your memory. Friday and Saturday the club members were grilling and serving food for the convenience of anyone who was hungry.
Go to their truck-in (Chill Out Up By The Pole) next year, you won’t be sorry.
