We are past due for another Minnesota gathering. My Wife and I are willing to host the next get together at our new house in Bloomington. We don't have many weekends open this summer but 8-3 happens to be one. If you can make it please let us know so I can send you our address. Hope to see many of you again!

Just emailed my mom to see if she can watch the boys, but it shouldn't be a problem. Can't wait to see the new place!

Are you guys sure you're up to #21??

Especially since you are all slackers and not putting up the Minnesota gatherings list in the List of previous WW gatherings by area (New list in the Gatherings tab)!


Someone has to put WD's kids thru college, but why does it have to be me!

I didn't notice this until today. Lately I had been thinking about starting an interest thread to see if MN wooters were ready for another gathering. I was even going to offer to host since I'm closing on a house on July 25th. I figured it'd be ready in time for a gathering in August or September. Anyways, I'm glad a gathering is in the works and I'm already looking forward to it. :-)

Can't wait to see everyone again. Mark we are not slackers we just are fine with leaving the past in the past. Actually MN woot members planned the first gathering!

I thought I was going to miss this one, but my schedule got changed and now it looks like I'll be able to make it. If my schedule doesn't get changed again, of course.

I picked out the bottle to bring yesterday. It's getting close, and some of you people I haven't seen in quite some time. Plus we get to see the new house!

Sadly, we're out.

Going to celebrate my mom's bday that night.

Seems that my wife will be in Chicago with our shared car - so unless I find alternative transportation up there, I will not be able to join

Sorry to hear so many can't make it. Oh well we will drink a glass in your honor.

We are thinking of starting around 5pm, we will probably make some bbq shredded chicken in the crockpot so people can have something to eat. Everyone can come whenever they are ready. I will send you my address on Friday or Saturday if you are coming.

I'll bring cheese and crackers, if I remember. Which I sometimes don't. 'Cause I'm old, you know.

We're coming, but we, uh, have no idea what wine we're bringing. Or food. Salami & olives, maybe? We were on vacation last week (1 week, 5 adults, 4 small children, 2 of which are extremely high maintenance. It was fun, but exhausting), so we're still catching up. Nicolai is going to Grandpa's cabin and Soren is going to Grandma's, so childcare is covered, but I don't know when we'll be there. First kid-free (partial) weekend in over a year...

So - where are you located? I'm heading out tomorrow, and won't have easy internet access once I'm on the road.

Yes, I know - I need to upgrade my cell phone. But at least I'm making it harder for the NSA to track me!

Either I didn't get the address or I don't know how to access PMs anymore. I deleted all of my old ones and no longer have a little envelope with the number next to it or whatever we used to see for PMs.

ETA: Nevermind! Just needed to adjust adblock settings.

I will be bringing salted chocolate covered caramels from the Candy Basket, as well as 2 or 3 bottles of wine.

P.S. - Coynedj, I'll have your 3 bottles of the Winter's Hill Pinot Noir with me.

Looking forward to seeing everyone again

We are soooo sad we missed this one. With all the home being bought would be fun. We just got ours a few moths ago and would love to host a tasting (loosely used). But would require you all to go on a vacation. Doesn't sound that bad, right?! Alaska, Wine, Wooters sounds like a great time to me and it would be light the whole time!!!! ;)
Just an idea. ;)
