Hi! I got 2 private messages mentioning that July 29th was not good so I would like to see if there is any interest in having a meetup Wed August 11th in the St. Paul area. I can probably change the date and time but need to know if there is any interest. Thanks.

I am interested and I asume you do mean St. Paul, Minnesota.  Minneapolis, works better for me, but since soccer is over, I now have Wednesday evenings somewhat free.

 I'm interested and that date works for me!

Wednesday, August 11th works well for me too.

 

Can we start the fun part: Picking the bar!

 

My vote: Happy Gnome (big patio, low noise level, great beer).

 The Happy Gnome is a good central location and has a decent-sized, free parking lot.

I'm not biased or anything - I live close enough to walk, so someone else can have my parking spot...  ;-)

So it sounds like Happy Gnome is the location and there are 4 of us. MTIETEL, do you mind making reservations under ManagerTools? I will post an agenda in the next day or two. Anyone else want to join?

Hello, here is the agenda:

7:00  Welcome/Introductions - Who you are, where you're from, when and why you discovered Manager Tools.
 
8:00 Your most powerful manager tool(s). Which tools have been the most successful/effective for you? Why? Are there any that you've tried that haven't worked?
 
9:00 Adjourn

It will be great to meet fellow MT managers here in MN.  See ya tonight.

So I leave the office a little late and I get to the parking lot and get to the hostess at exactly 7pm and ask for the ManagerTools.com reservation for 4 and she looks at me and says that it was yesterday....ugh! That is what I get for not adding the meeting to my calendar. Here I somehow lost a day while on travel to St. Paul and missed my own meeting! Ugh. My apologies guys. She did say that three people showed up and not the fourth. I smiled and said thank you.

I must say we were a little puzzled when the organizer and instigator doesn't show.  We assumed something had happened.  You missed a good time.  It is great talking to other MT managers.  I started a new thread for a meet up on September 22nd.  Hope you can make it.

Sorry you weren't able to attend.  We definitely had stimulating conversation.  And I hope you can make it next time!
