My thought would be mail them also and then set up a meeting separately. The odds of all 10 of being able to meet at any one time seem unlikely. I could most likely make something work this weekend if others are in.

Weather could be dicey coming down from the Cities this Saturday. Suggest mailing flies and setting a date, per Teach.

Weather looks like it will keep me in the city this weekend as well.

While much more involved than meeting at LTS, any thoughts on selecting a weekend and do a camping/fishing gathering? Might make it easier on non SE guys to commit if they'd be able to fish for a couple days. And fishing talk is always better around a fire with beer in hand. Just an idea...
Simply put, people fish because it's fun

I agree re: mailing flies and closing out the swap. 6" of snow around here and more to north.

I'd be up for some kind of on stream get together like tfo suggested. Although I'd rather skip the camping and just meet for brats or such.

Streamside sounds good.

I think we are getting somewhere. Streamside meet and fish, with simple eats - bring your favorite growler (or whiskey, etc.) to share...?

I did a forum search for the word "address" but did not see your mail address Randy. Can you post it here? Thanks.

Sorry for delay, I was holding out for a meeting, but will mail flies now.
