    DefaultTwin Cities Meetup?

    I know Ed (HK dad) put together an informal get together at their dog park last year and was wondering if he would do again?

    It's not the destination, it's the journey!

    Let me think about this. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm! Okay! I thought about it.

    How about anyone interested throw out some dates and or locations.?

    I'll start it.
    Any Saturday in July, although I suspect the 4th will have lots of conflicts.

    I personally like the Three Rivers Parks.
    - The best one being the Crow Hassen Park. It is the largest, and the river is great for letting the dogs swim. Unfortunately is is at the extreme NW corner of Hennepin County.
    - Elm Creek (North end) and Cleary Lake (South end) Parks are nice, but the ponds get pretty scuzzy. By July, I won't let HK into the water there. The ponds are separately fenced.

    Another great park in the Minnehaha Falls Park on the Mississippi. Great shoreline and good water for the dogs. City is pretty strict there at handing out fines for permit violations. Permit is $5/dog/day. (All the parks require a permit of some kind.)

    Excluding water, the Minnewashta Park in Carver County is pretty nice, but no swimming water.

    Okay! That's my shot at a start. Lets see what happens.

    PS: Getting excited! I think this is good for my Thyroid.

    Congrats on Nallah's PB at Duluth!
    It would be fun to have a meetup, we'll have to see what transpires! I'd love to even help plan it, if help is needed!

    I guess I let some folks down, including myself and HK. I have lots of excuses, but I should have tried to pass the baton. If someone plans something, I will find a way to get there if possible. Daughters wedding has consumed any time I have had. In a few weeks, I will have my weekdays free, and the wedding will be history come the end of October. Lots of work, but lots of fun. (Not as much as a Labfest though?)
