    Hey all! First time going on a meet. Is there a place in particular within Target off of Madison where you all meet?

      Normally we group up in the middle of the parking lot, closest to the road. In other words farthest from the actual entrance to Target. You will see us.

      We should be back before then. I doubt it'll actually take 6 hours and meet time is 7:15. What time do you need to be home?
