    Hi folks,

    I'm going to be in the Minneapolis area visiting family for a week at the end of October and would like to meet up with anyone from MN APUG who has time for a coffee etc...and to see your prints from the North Shore outing last month.

    I'll be in town (actually, my family is out in Maple Grove now) from October 24th thru November 1st.

    Any suggestions on where to meet etc.?

    Hi Gary,

    I would love to get together for a coffee with you. Sorry for the belated reply. I haven't had much time to look at APUG lately.

    Maple Grove is not too far at all, so if you want to meet out there, it could certainly be arranged.

    Hi Thomas,

    I'm getting on a plane to Minneapolis tonight. If you and anyone else is still free to get together next week for coffee etc, I'd really enjoy it. My week is pretty open. Not sure how best to set this up. I'll have a cell phone there and the phone number is 952-818-2635. I'm happy to meet anywhere (Maple Grove, Minneapolis, St. Paul....you name it). Unfortunately, I'm not going to be able to bring one of my film cameras with me....only my Canon G9 P&S (too much other stuff to take south, including 10 lbs. of frozen halibut and Sockeye salmon for my family!).

    I'll have access to a computer while I am there so I'll check in Saturday evening or Sunday on this forum.

    Hope to see you and other Twin Cities APUG members soon.

    Gary,

    Please let me know when it works for you to hang out. I can meet up whenever during the week.
