The Minnesota Vikings and Eden Prairie have been joined at the hip for more than one-third of a century, with the Vikings' Winter Park headquarters and training facility constructed in 1981. Now out of room, the Vikings are moving to bigger quarters in Eagan. But not before their contributions to Eden Prairie are recognized in a special luncheon being held 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday, October 23rd, at Bearpath Golf & Country Club. WCCO-TV's Mike Max will emcee this walk down memory lane, and special guests include Vikings owner Zygi Wilf and former Minnesota Viking Chuck Foreman.
Other confirmed guests include:
Kevin Warren, Vikings Chief Operating Officer
Lester Bagley, Vikings EVP-Public Affairs
Steve LaCroix, Vikings EVP & Chief Marketing
