Thanks to Shawn for taking the lead but I vote the Red Mug as Edgewood did state that he wanted to do this for the next DPG show so we could get an idea of the space. Also the meeting would be on a Friday or Saturday per Edgewood? Can I get a second on this?
Okay, well we are having a show there, so it makes sense to meet there and figure the place out. Plus, some of us live in Superior and even further out, and we always have to come to Duluth for the meetings, so it would be nice for us to have a meeting on our side of the bridge sometimes.
I'm not sure what your vehicle situation is, Randy, but if you are a bus person maybe you could hitch a ride from another DPG member to the meeting that night?
i like the plan of meeting on on Fri or Sat. Weds i'm busy. Although as i don't know my work schedule for the rest of the month i can't actually guarantee i'll be there. but i'd like to meet you all and be more involved.
Well that show isn't for awhile right? So we don't need to go to Red Mug this weekend necessarily. I'm not really a HUGE fan for fitting that many people in the Red Mug, but I think we should all be there considering that's the place for the show.
The show is not until June, BUT Edge wants proposals for the show by March (I think?), which means that we all need to see the space and get a good idea as to how much space we will have. And the people that get chosen to be in the show (I think Edge is only thinking a few people) will need plenty of time to get their work ready.
I second that we have the March meeting at the Green Mill on a Friday.

Meeting is set for Fri 22nd 7pm at the Red Mug, there's plenty of space. I reserved the "pit" area for us.
I understand your distance concern Randy, but we have enough members that just about anywhere is going to be an imposition for someone, so fairest thing is to move it around and always pi** off annoy someone different.
Thanks Edgewood. Now we can post a discuss possible topics for the meeting. One being a committee that heads up the planning of the rest of the meetings which I nominate Shawn because he is good with details and he like beer so that will be a priority when choosing a location.
Ok, we think we are going to try to make the meeting at the Red Mug. Somebody want to give me directions from Hwy 53, it's about 120 miles to Duluth from our house, so I don't want to waste beer drinking time!
take 53 all the way to tower (hwy 2), take that 1.4 miles and take a right (north) on hammond, then go half a mile, it will be on the right (east) side, big brick building, its in the basement. Its the north east corner of 9th st and hammond. If you cross the railroad tracks, you went a block to far. Simple simple
Karl it isn't that hard to find. It's right over the bridge, drive past the railroad tracks, right past lakehead signs company, and it's on your left. It's in the brick building on the corner in the basement. If you need help finding it you can call me.
