    Hi folks, I will be the group leader for our area. I reside 15 Minutes from the Mall of America in Minnesota. I usually plan a once a month night out to include a trip to the AD and a Mix Drink. GTG's are encouraged too. Inquire within. :D

    Please send me a PM if you are in this area. :D

    Well I'm originally from Iowa and have only lived here about 6 years. So I really belong in your group. =)

    Give the sizes of our respective groups, I think that we would realistically combine groups anyway. So you don't have to choose. There are a couple of other Iowans here. Welcome!

    Welcome Fcaap! We will have some fun this fall I think. I am thinking of a Patio Party and AD trip maybe. Stay tuned and if you have any ideas please let us know.

    :D

    Well, I started small back in 97 with just a handful of reps. But I have since grown in scope and capability . I have a loyal base of customers and friends that I have built up over the years . I get word of mouth referrals and new guys find me on Minneapolis Craigslist under watch repair . Its fun meeting new people and I enjoy being able to fix their watches . :D
