Well, it's the weekend of the 6th of May, and you're expecting the Journey to Babble Tour. You might have also figured that we've moved it to one week later, after the meeting on the 13th.
This is the third year of the Journey to Babble Tour. The third installment is just a little different than the first two. First, we’re having after the General Membership meeting, so we’re reducing it from four stops to three. Second, Babble isn’t just for beer any more.
We’re starting with a food and brew at a brewpub, next cocktails at a local distillery, and then creative drinks and fun at an artist-drive venue with more than just food and drink. Enjoy!
The monthly meeting is at the Mounds View Public Library, where we'll start out at around 2:00PM if all goes well.

The 29th Edition of Como Friends' ZooBoo is in the history books, and it was a good one. Over four nights just over 16,000 guests passed through the gates to help Como Zoo grow while helping themselves to some goodies.
This was the Nokomis' 23rd year helping out. The first station, Halloween, is our first stop each year and a great way to spend an evening with a few thousand new, close personal friends. Thanks to everyone who could make it. Special thanks to Art Johnson, our one and only perfect four-night volunteer character.
Next year will be the 30th ZooBoo and if all goes as expected, will be a big party to celebrate. Funds from that event will help to kick off work on the new Pinniped Plaza, replacing the Seal Island and Sparky Stage area with new performance and year-round display spaces.
Come join us next October for ZooBoo 30, and thanks again for all you did to help out in 2016.
With just over a month remaining, it's time to reserve your place at the event and pre-pay for the food. Dawn and Mary will be planning, shopping and cooking and they need counts to buy food and headcount to know how much. To make sure there's lead time, we've set a deadline of October 22nd.
Just in time for your holiday shopping, or movie night viewing. Amazon.com and others list the release date as November 1st.
Now the hard part - which version? StarTrek.com reveals the details, although their release date is likely incorrect. The site reports that each retailer has its own unique bent, or 'warp' on the product. Aside from the DVD/Blu-Ray/3D choices, you can choose which model or models make you happy.
The 2016 Visit to the Uecker's Cabin is coming up on August 19th. Can you believe they've been nice enough to invite us every year since 1987? That's six five-years of fun in the sun and the Lake!
