MASA holiday party! (11/16/2000)

I'm pleased to announce the MASA Holiday Party!

Saturday, December 9, 2000
730-930 PM

The Cochran's House, 4235 Dupont Ave South, Minneapolis [Near the Lake Harriet Rose Gardens].

A snack item to share
All the photos of other people's rockets you haven't yet given away.
Mementos of the MASA's activities in the year 2000.
Optional but recommended: A wrapped rocket-related mystery gift item, total value less than $5. Do not include identifying information. This may be a "real" gift or a "gag" gift [but remember, there will be children participating!] Those who contribute can participate in the anonymous progressive round-robin mystery gift exchange during the party.

It will be fun, I promise!


From the South
46th Ave exit off of Northbound I-35W, West to Dupont, North to 4235 Dupont Ave S. (3rd house on the right)

From the North
35th/36th Ave exit off of Southbound I-35W, South to 38th St, West to Dupont, South to 43rd street, U-turn to 4235 Dupont Ave South. Dupont is a parkway with a wide median, hence the U-turn. You can also park on the Southbound side and walk across the median, (if the snow isn't too deep. -)

From the West
I-394 to Dunwoody Exit, ahead 2 blocks to Lyndale, right (Southbound) on Lyndale to 43rd St. (about 3 miles), West on 43rd St. to Dupont, North 3 houses to 4235 Dupont .

[From the Northwest, take I-94 to Hennepin/Lyndale exit. Stay on Lyndale. Then follow the directions above.]

From the East
Take I94 to I35W south, or I494 to 35W North, or I694 to 35W South, and follow the directions above.

Optional Geeky pre-party event
The third annual First Lego League Minnesota State Robotics Championships. About 65 qualifying teams from the regional tournaments will be competing at Benilde St. Margaret's school in St. Louis Park, to see who's Lego Mindstorms robot does the best job in retrieving samples, rescuing a trapped scientist, and saving endangered villagers from an erupting volcano. See http// for details.
