I have a feeling that this is going to be a long, alcohol-soaked, terrific evening. Looks like some mighty fine wines (and beers) could be on tap, and we won't want to rush through them.

If we can make it, it won't be for long, so the Shafer will have to wait for the next time. Will find something good to bring, for sure, if I make it.

Heather going to PM an address? I have a general idea of where you are at, but it's been like 5 years or so since I was there.

Need to figure out what I am going to bring as far as food. Would there be a grill available to use?

What time is this happening? Need to plan my beverage consumption in Rochester accordingly while watching basketball. Beer/water/beer or water/beer/water

I will PM out the address. We do have a grill that you are more than welcome to use.

I will post the time out here shortly.

How is everybody doing logistics? I would love to join but would be in no condition to drive back. I can sleep pretty much anywhere, but it is a bit cold to sleep outside?

Who else is from Southern Minnesota btw?
