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.

    •   That's basically what Ryan tried to do with the last bill...authored behind closed doors.   That all worked out well....
    • Just make them pass it before they see it
    •   Democrats have wanted a single payer system from the start, but they don't have the power to pull it off.   The elderly, the healthcare providers and the medical profession are the drivers of the legislation, and they don't want single payer either, since they have already seen what has happened to Medicare coverage.

    • Same here. And look how well twetter is working for da prez!!
    • Facebook is where it's at...no thanks...
    • All forums have a certain shelf life. There is only so long that the debate over Ford/ Chevy, Vex/Marcin. Eskimo/ Strike master, Ice Castle / Yeti can keep your attention. After a while most just slip away. New people are using social apps more that the old forum formats and that is that. The only thing saving silly town is that politics is the gift that keeps on giving. 
    • Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham is among GOP leaders saying Republicans and Democrats now need to work together on a fix. Over the weekend, Rep. Betty McCollum and Sen. Al Franken – both Democrats — said they agreed with Graham. “That is what we need to do,” Franken said on WCCO Sunday Morning. “Speaker Ryan said at the end of this process that the Affordable Care Act is the the law of the land. We need to address what’s wrong with the Affordable Care act, what isn’t working.” Immediately after pulling the bill, Trump said he would be willing to work with Democrats on health care.     Too big to fail.....deja vu

    •     I saw a couple of statements in the media yesterday from Dem leadership to the effect that they would be interested in working with Ryan on this.  One from our very own Al Franken.  So that tells me they most likely already are.
