Welcome to the 2016 Midwest Morris Ale
The Minnesota morris community is proud to present the 36th Annual Midwest Morris Ale in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota on Memorial weekend, May 27-30, 2016.
Camp Saint Croix is an easy two miles off of I-94 at Exit 2 in Hudson, Wisconsin. The camp address is 532 County Road F, Hudson, WI 54016 and is easily found in Google Maps and probably most GPSs. The camp website is http://www.ymcatwincities.org/camps/camp_st_croix/ You can also check http://www.511wi.gov/ for Wisconsin road conditions.
Directions to the camp
The 2016 Mid-West Morris Ale will be held at YMCA Camp St. Croix. The camp is located just south of I-94 in Hudson, Wisconsin. Only 20 minutes east of St. Paul, MN.
Registration opens at 3:00 pm. Please do not arrive before 3pm as we will be busy getting the camp ready!
There are three parking "lots" at camp. The largest lot ("main parking") is directly south past the circle drive. To the north and south of the circle drive are two rather small parking areas. In addition, we will be parking cars along the roadway coming into and through the camp. Parking on the road will be on the east side only and will be marked. We will fill in road parking starting from the South Parking lot, heading back north toward the main entrance. There will be people to assist you in finding a spot, but assume if you are arriving on the later side that you will be parking along the road. There will be no parking in the main circle drive as we need this area for the buses. In all cases, please be mindful as you park and not take up more space than is necessary. Campers and trailers will be directed to the South Parking lot for entrance to the tenting area.
