No promisses, but New Years day might work for us.

But I was hoping for just a little bit of discretion to keep the riff raff out.....LOL

So far it looks like SAT 02 JAN might work the best? Time; how about 12noon till... whenever? Location I thought the pizza shop worked pretty well. Plenty of parking space and pizza on hand. Also just a few blocks away from some trails if we wanted to fling some snow. I could get more specific directions for those coming outside the cities.

Hmm.. Isn't SAT the 1st of January? In any case, that works the best because its one of the days I actually don't have to work for a change. If its on the 2nd, I can't make it :(

I'm still not sure, the 1st will be much harder than the 2nd (annual family new years party, but I may be able to get out of it), but we may be leaving town before that, so it's still up in the air, but if I'm there, there will be the usual posse of 5 or 6 people (who may come anyway).

Would be great to have you there... maybe you could tell them you will be at the party but want to attend this for 2 or 3 hours?

Everyone that came last time is welcome; they all seemed to have some fun and we all got along well. Hardly any Jeep comments were made :grin:

Saturday the 1st works for me! (and Austin!)

Although... I am unsure where this pizza place is...so if that is to be our meeting place, it would be very nice if someone could post directions of some sort! :) or if it is up to some improvisation..we could meet at "Water into Coffee," which is a coffee shop ( :-p ) in the Excelsior/Tonka Bay area that could also work...just a suggestion!

Excelsior/Tonka Bay area


Is that were you're at? If so, this pizza shop is on the complete other side of the cities from us, we could caravan over, it's actually alot easier to find than I thought it would be.

well, I'm out of the party, and it looks like we won't be going on a ski trip :(, but that means I'll probably be there

we can work out the details as the time approaches

That sucks about the ski trip but hopefully some fun in the snow with Subarus will cheer you up :D

Directions:
Turitto's Pizza
6611 E Concord Blvd
Inver Grove Heights, MN 55076 - 4201
(651) 455-6363

On I-494 exit off at Concord Blvd.
Take Concord Blvd. south into Invergrove Heights.
On your right you will see a yellow sign for Turitto's Pizza and Subs.
On the left accross the rail road tracks is King of Diamonds.
Pull into the pizza shop lot and park by the funny looking Subarus :drunk:

For those who are like me and prefer maps : (sorry about all the side scrolling)

Scope:

Narrowed down; note the exit is highlighted:

Zoomed in. Note the offroad trails by DQ:

That's a rough sketch of how the trails are laid out. It's more extensive than that but I can't remember very little turn and off-shoot trail. If the weather aint too bad we might just have to go and fling some snow! :brow:
