  • Twin Cities Aviation
    For years, Bill Ahmann mastered the complex inner workings of piston and turbine aircraft as an aviation mechanic. In 1997, he finally achieved his dream by founding his own aviation company out of Anoka County-Blaine Airport. Initially a small venture with a staff that totaled three, Bill's penchant for providing aviation-related services with a personal touch led to rapid growth and a second Twin Cities Aviation location in Saint Paul. In 2008, Bill's veteran squad of flight instructors helped the company achieve Part 141 certification, distinguishing it as a reputable flight school. Today, TCA's staff numbers more than 20 industry professionals drawn from military, commercial-airline, and other aviation backgrounds. Flying a tiptop fleet, the team boasts varied expertise in charter flights, FAA-certified flight instruction, and aircraft sales. The staff's experienced mechanics also service pilots and plane owners with repairs that range from routine safety inspections to refueling propeller hats.

  • The Mud Games
    The Mud Games, an exceptionally muddy merger of obstacles and distance, challenges participants of all ages and fitness levels to eschew traditional races in favor of a down-and-dirty good time. At the start of each heat, 200 runners hurl themselves into 3.1- or 1.5-mile courses strewn with sloppy bogs, rope webs, walls, and a mud slide. To keep racers on even terms, the organizers have sprinkled in a handful of mystery obstacles, which may include anything from waist-high water trenches to nephews who need help with their algebra homework. Prizes are awarded for the top three male and female finishers. But the race isn't just for the sake of getting dirty. It was also started for charitable reasons: the majority of the proceeds go to the Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota, with additional funding given to the Minnesota Heat youth basketball association. Interested runners can register as individuals or teams, and friends and family are encouraged to come out as spectators and cheer them on.

  • Metro Shooting Center
    Masked mercenaries lurk in the shadows of trees waiting to pin down their enemies in a barrage of bursting paintballs at Metro Paintball Center’s 5-acre playing field. The battlefield provides ample cover for players to orchestrate attacks or stealthily field phone calls from their mothers with knee-high grasses, straw bales, and a combination of wooded and open areas, all while overseen by experienced referees. The staff provides compressed air and rents out all the equipment necessary to enjoy a day of recreational combat, though guests who bring their own equipment must use the center’s paintballs.
