2016 — MINNESOTA ORPHANS!

Our theme is MINNESOTA ORPHANS — all those great brands that used to be made in Minnesota.   Yes, Scorpion and Brut and Viking, but also some small-ruin manufacturers.  How about Muscaro, Sno Wolf or Diplomat?   Can you guess how many manufacturers formerly were in Minnesota?

If you have a picture of a Minnesota Orphan brand, send it in to: waconia99@gmail.com

If you have a nice example of a Minnesota Orphan that might be displayed in the Ballroom next year, contact us: waconia99@gmail.com
