There was one a while ago to say farewell to KL at MSP, but the weather turned out to be rather crappy and I heard that not alot of people showed up. Does anyone want to try again for this summer? I won't mention any dates in order to see what flexibility people have.
Let me know if this is something you would like to do!

For out-of-towners needing a hotel, I suggest the Country Inn & Suites at the Mall of America. The train that runs from the Mall to MSP (and downtown) is just around the corner. The Mall and hotel are about three miles from MSP.

Count me in. This month is pretty busy so just keep me informed as to when this will be. Also, I live about 15 minutes from MSP so I'm pretty flexible. If there are any out-of-towners who need any help feel free to email me through my profile or IM me (KrisJetz).

During the planning stages, I think it would be best to communicate by a.net IM or in this thread. It worked great for the LAS get-together. Everyone's ideas and suggestions were available for all to see and all to discuss.

July would be good. Only on a weekend for me. I have relatives so I do not need a place to stay.
I am familiar with the Minneapolis St. Paul area, but not really with the area around MSP. Perhaps it would be good if we met somewhere that is close that we can all find relatively easily, and then go from there to see some sweet red-tails.

Ok, so let's try and meet in July, since that seems to be the best month to achieve maximum amount of people attending. Should we go for a weekend meet? Personally, Fridays and Saturdays would be the best days for me because those are my off days from work this summer. Let me know guys!

The 7th, 8h and/or 9th of July all work out fine for me, but do you think it's too close to the wake of the 4th of July? Perhaps some people calling off work for the holiday won't be able to call off for the weekend...?
