FishingMinnesota "Family Night Meeting"

Recommended Posts

Guest

I am thrilled to announce FishingMinnesota's Family Night Meetings!
These meetings are open to the public and meant to promote "FM".
The meetings will provide a place to share fishing information face-to-face, and generate some "entertainment" for a regular social "gathering".
The meetings will also serve to generate in-person contacts and "relations" with existing FM members. And will bring in new FM members.
Each meeting will have an FM forum moderator as MC - master of ceremonies, many FM pro staff in attendance, guest speakers & reps from companies associated with FM, and involve an evening meal.

The first three meetings will be held at the Cabela's Retail Store in Owatonna, MN.
These meeting dates are on October 17, November 14 and January 23.

Future meetings and locations will be announced later.
After holding these first three meetings, it is in planning that future meeting may be held in other areas of the state... in Minnesota's North, East, and West regions.

The meeting scheduled at Cabela's Retail will be held in their meeting room (at the top of the stairs and to the right) by the food service area. This room seats aprox. 120 people and has a microphone & overhead projector, tables & chairs.

FM Pro Staff meeting starts at 6:00pm with a 30 minute socal time for non FM staff.

The FishingMinnesota Family Night Meeting would start at 6:30pm, with supper starting promptly at 7:00pm. We will dine off the regular menu for the October meeting and will consider a buffet style meals for the November and January meetings.

Meeting is over at 8:30pm.

Cabela's is closed at 9pm.

Those inclined, can leave the closing Cabelas and head to a local "pub"... Richard Smith is working on one to accomidate us.

The agenda is "open" for the first meeting. All meetings are to be fun "get-together" type events.

I would love to see some reps. from fishing related companies attend, and ask that they be "recognized" throughout the evening to share any information. My thought is that Rick will hold the floor as the "MC" at the Owatonna meetings.

It is my hope many people attending these Owatonna meetings will take advantage of seeing the Cabela's Retail Store and Cabela's Outlet Mall as well as the many other interesting places to see, and shop, in Owatonna...hey, Hooked on Fishing is only 45 minutes away in Rochester

I would also hope many of you will stay over-night and enjoy a day of Owatonna area fishing. Richard Smith is working with Cabela's to provide shuttle service for you interested to and from the Cabela's Retail Store and the Medford Outlet Mall.
