Mankato Meet (feeler)

27 posts in this topic

Myself and MinnesnowtaWild (Jeff) were just curious if there would be any interest in a Mankato meet-up sometime in May. We were thinking about perhaps meeting up and grilling early in the evening and then fishing once it gets dark out. It would be a great way to meet some of you guys on here, and would be a lot of fun as well. I would like to gauge your interest in something like this, so that I can talk to the Mankato Park Board and let them know if and when we would be doing this ... we would probably meet up at Sibley Park or Land of Memories park, as these parks would allow for a number of fishermen(and women smile ) to utilize the area in an efficient, non-crowded manner.

*I had also given a bit of thought towards maybe a half hour or so where we could go around the park a bit and clean up some of the trash that plagues the park, and I think that the Park Board would be a bit more receptive towards the meet if we offered to give back a bit and help clean before we fish.

Any interest fellas?

Well the date is still up in the air, as this is just a feeler (to gauge interest ... see if this is going to be a reality or not). Once we figure out if there is an interest, we can start tossing dates and times around.

*off topic but you're a mankato-an as well? You fish around here much?

But at 10 PM they close the gates so I was just wondering if they would maybe let us stay there a little while after that.

Rushing and Klye B would be of great help you guys if you need some insiders on making this work beings they have put on quite a few gatherings june is also a good month . and maybe with rushings connections with justin timberlake he could get him to sing for us before we go out on the river fishing that night. That would top all gatherings just do it rob.

Stam has been tryin to get me to listen to Timberlake for a couple of years now. He is such a big fan the first thing he did with his new boat is to put a sticker of his beloved JT on it.

I just chalked it up to him being an Iowan. I say what ever floats your boat and Timberlake seems to float his!

I tell ya what, Justin is a cool cat. It was nice of him to make it to our gathering a few years ago.

I know someone who was having a ball with him:

I remember that gathering well!!

Besides JT, that was the gathering where Harvey Lee's boat almost got crushed by a tree. Thought I heard the tree was still there.

Stam34... you getta new boat? I got your text and completely forgot about it. If you still have those Ram holders, I'll be more than willing to take them off your hands.

Yeah, Larry hopping on his back and yelling "Justin is bringing sexy back!" as he rode him around the boat landing was definitely a highlight of the gathering.

    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.
