    Yep, I can get there in about 7 minutes from my place. What time are you all thinking about getting to MN on Friday?

    Hello. Posting this from class. I should have that weekend free but Im going to check again tonight to make sure I dont have finals or any major exams following that weekend.

    Havent booked priceline yet, unless you guys have a hotel in mind. Will begin examining the area tonight. Chad, what neighborhoods or areas of town should be avoided?

    Keep in mind that you may get a better price than priceline if you ask for a group rate. Tell them you don't know how many, perhaps 10 - 20. Also keep in mind that there are a LOT of Minnesota guys on here who may decide to show up, but are not in MSP. Once we have a hotel I plan on posting in the Seville and Deville forums for the guys who do no come to the lounge.

    Well, for cities near the airport, I'd stay out of Richfield (don't let the name fool you, Richfield is NOT the rich side of town), South St. Paul and West St. Paul. Richfield borders the Twin Cities international airport, but it's to the west. I live in Eagan, which is east-southeast of the MSP. Eagan is only 15 minutes away from the airport, and since it's pretty much centrally located, I'd just as well find a hotel there.

    The hotel I stayed at last year was in Egan. Seemed like a nice area from what I saw. Like I said, I think it was the Crown Plaza, but not positive.

    My flight arrives at 2:10 p.m., so if there's not a shuttle for hotel where we're staying, I can just take a cab to the hotel.

    I REALLY need to make it to one of these..........

    I was all set to go to the one in Chicago, last year, but had to cancel... I had hotel booked, and everything -- almost got Adam to go too...(I think I got Rolex thinking about it too, for a few minutes anyway...)

    The MPLS meet coincides w/one of Beretta's 6-week obedience school classes, and I've rescheduled the start date 3 times already....they're going to freak if I do it again... If it weren't for that, I could have scheduled a work trip to MPLS for the couple of days before, and gotten part of it paid for, too.... ARGHH!

    I'll just run down to Rochester and back in the morning and be home by noon, so I can just pick up anyone when they fly in.

    Unless, if anyone is flying in during the morning hours, I'll just take Friday off.

    Re: Minneapolis meet! June 11-13 2010.

    Just rechecked my class syllabi. I'm taking four classes this semester, two of which are somewhat heavy. I don't think I'm going to make this meet. I really wanted to see MSP too. Unfortunately, I need that weekend to finish some research papers, meet for group work, and work on presentations. Between missing this and the big NICO meet in Carlisle PA, my summer is pooched.

    I am still trying to finalize my business trip. Still trying to determine if I am doing it before the weekend or after. If it is after, I probably wont get up there until late evening on Friday.

    I'm going to have to sit this one out as well thanks to summer classes taking up my usually disposable summer income

    Richfield is not bad, My Grandpa who was an Executive at AmFam lives there in a very nice house. The guy I bought my Impala SS from lives there too and he has a Ferarri. I personally wouldn't be worried to walk anywhere in richfield where I have been. I am sure it has its bad parts but it is an older Yuppie neighborhood for the most part.
