Menno and Mitch of the Red Wing Store Amsterdam went to the annual Red Wing meeting in Minnesota, the home town of Red Wing Boots. The three day trip was packed with activity including a boat ride along the world famous Mississippi river, some American games and an impromptu game of Soccer - the Red Wing U.S.A. team v.s the Red Wing Europe team, of course Europe won!

After soaking up the hospitality and the cool industrial vibe of the city it was time to head home. Check out the pictures to get a small impression of what we experienced.
