Lets organize the first official Twin Cities Meet this year. When should we meet? I think we should meet at Como Park again like last year, lots of grills, parking and close to main roads. What does everyone think?

If you have buddies that want to come, or feel like emailing people from the forums about the meet, do so. The more the better. Bring 2way radios if you have them and food to grill out. We'll plan on 5pm on Sat. June 12th.

On June 12th, we'll meet starting at 5pm at the Western Picnic Area. We'll grill out and hang around for a few hours before begining a cruise around town and ending up on University Ave.



Here's a few maps.

I think bringing your own food is still the best bet. I'll bring the charcoal/lighter fluid for this time. (I'll try to remember tongs too!)

ATTENTION EVERYONE!! I94 (the entire freeway) is closed before 280. If you're coming up from 494 I'd recomend taking 35E to 94 West and take lexington up (north) to como. If you're coming from Minneapolis take 36 East to Lexington and go south. If you have any questions, I'll be checking the site before I leave to go tomorrow feel free to PM me and I can give you a call.

so i found my way home (thanks to the road construction). And if you were at the get to gether, i was talking about a bad wheel bearing or so i thought. so i'm on I-94 doin' about 70 and the noise get bad real bad so my brother tell me to pull over and check it out, so i start to pull over and my tire passes me. I think the ripin' we did loosend up the lug and my god dame tire fell off. so i put the donut on and limped it home. but all and all it was fun, and i'm lookin' forward to the next one. but i got to go and put a new couple of lugs in.
talk to you all later.

I'm sure those people with mil+ houses along the missisippi loved us doing (undisclosed speeds), reving our engines and tooting our horns down their street :D

just thought that was funny
