The Results are in - The Minneapolis / St. Paul Meetup was a Success :)

in meetup •  last year

This past Friday, we hosted the "Steem Meetup" event in Minneapolis / St. Paul. Twenty-one people attended, and it was a lot of fun!

We started out at Davanni's Pizza in Edina, Minnesota. Everyone hung out there for a few hours, talked (mostly about Steemit) and ate lots of food.

We had everyone clearly print their username on a "sign in" sheet, so that we could tell who all was there.

Of course, no group photo is complete without a "silly" shot =)

After Davanni's, we headed over to Dave and Buster's and played video games!



The event was tons of fun!!

More footage of the event can be found here:

Special thanks to @artist1989 for designing the t-shirts that we handed out, and for putting all the photographs together!

I hope to see you all again at the next meetup =)

I don't think I could have had a better time @timcliff ! Except for maybe being able to stay a little longer at D&B, but tis the life with wife and kids. Hope to see you and everyone else at the next one. Or even better, just walking down the street :)

·

It was so great to meet you! I'm glad you had a good time :)

·
·

i want to enjoy it

·

I feel jealous to have such beautiful gathering

wow very cool.. I think there should be steemit meet up all around the world.. and we should have rewards for helping new people get on boarding/

·

I've seen a lot of meetups around the world. It's pretty cool :) There is also SteemFest later this year!

Best of times @timcliff! Thank you for hosting such a wonderful Meetup! We had a blast!

·

It was a lot of fun! I really enjoyed talking to you. Glad you were there :)

Well, that was worth a full power UV just now LOL!

Awesome!!!!

I love seeing stuff like this.

Hey man, where did you get those sweet Steemit shirts some of you have on???

Can you send me one LOL!!!!

I will send you SBD and it is nice to get stuff that is not a bill lol

Good work everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was hoping to see @lauralemons and @ericvancewalton in there!

·

Hey man, where did you get those sweet Steemit shirts some of you have on???

Can you send me one LOL!!!!

Our original plan was to have @artist1989 provide the image file for people to use, and instructions on how to print them off from Zazzle, but I found out after we made them that we technically weren't supposed to use "Steemit", since Steemit, Inc. reserves the rights to that..

·
·

I've seen some noise on that issue.

is this REALLY a thing?

We are all here together building this, right?

Does @ned really have an issue with this?

I would think not.... we need family, unity and commUNITY here for mass name recognition and adoption.

I cannot honestly imagine why this would really be an issue........... I have seen some of the stuff in cursory on this lately and just honestly SMH at it.

·
·
·

They are OK with us using the Steem name + logo, just not "Steemit". I'm pretty sure that it gets into a slippery slope - if they say 'yes' to one, then it opens the door for more. They want to reserve the rights to their company/brand.

·
·
·
·

Sigh.

I understand of course.

·

As a new person in steemit I also really like this shirt

@siren7

·
·

Agreed. @opheliafu has an online store also, I am headin there now.

Thanks again for putting this all together, @timcliff! I had a blast, and now know that 4-person air hockey is a thing: )

·

It was so much fun. Thanks for being there! :)

@TimCliff - awesome job on the event. I've been to quite a few different bitcoin/altcoin related events over the last 5 years and this was at the top of my list for both fun & interactive. A+ job! :)

·

Thanks!

@timcliff Thank you for being a fantastic host! I had a lot of fun and it was great to meet new faces. :)

I had a lot of fun with you guys. I don't normally get out that much, but i'm glad I did. Thank you for setting up this awesome get together.

·

Welcome - I'm really glad you were there :)

Thanks again @timcliff for hosting such a fun evening! I really enjoyed meeting so many local Steemians and look forward to the next get together.

·

Yes, I had fun meeting you as well!

Thank you @timclff! It was a great opportunity to learn and have a blast! I can't wait for the next "meet up" or maybe just full on party and get to know everyone better :)

·

Me too :)

Thanks so much @timcliff for organizing this very fun event. I loved meeting more local Steemians. What an eclectic bunch of folks, my kind of people :)

Hey Tim thanks for the steem you sent :). You are doing awesome work here. Greetings from Brighton (UK) to New Brighton ;)

Oh wow man! The pictures are looking great! Seems like you guys had a lot of fun!

That looks amazing. These meetups are getting big as the community grows, wow. Pretty soon we'll need to rent out a hall to fit the 100+ local steemians that show up for a meet.

This is so cool!! How many communities do this? No social media communities that I can think of. This the power of Steemit :)

@kooks88 Looks sweet :)

Thanks @timcliff for organizing it and @artist1989 for designing the great shirts. I had a great time meeting everyone. Very much looking forward to another meetup.

·

Thanks for coming! It was great having you there :)

AMAZING! 😀
We have a solid! Steemit community in the Twin Cities!
Thus far I only knew of @pfunk and @ericvancewalton ...
Wow, there's lots more 😊
Please include me in the next meetup, I'd love to be an addition to the crew!
Thanks,
@scan0017 🙂

Wow that is awesome! That is a really solid turnout!

Very Cool @timcliff thank you for posting this and also sharing your experience here on Steemit! Always awesome to see a bunch of like minded people coming together and creating amazing things.

Awesome sir, I wish I could be there it seems so much fun and having everyone together too much fun.. I quite jealous of everybody that I'm not there.. but nice games coffee lunch together .. that's great.. I want to join that someday.. and yes I want one of the T-shirt I'm loving it.

I wish Thailand had a steem meet up. I haven't been on steemit long but I feel that this is the community I'd like to be in. This is awesome stuff man. Keep it up!

·

My spouse, @artist1989 designed them.

I was born in Edina but moved to California fifteen years ago... looks like I really missed out :(

·

Ah, cool. That's actually where I grew up. Did you go to school there?

·
·

I'm a young guy, was only in 1st grade when I moved :)

But I went to Concord Elementary there and began playing hockey. Learned to skate at the preschool I went to. How Minnesotan eh?

·
·
·

Nice. I went to Creek Valley :)

Thanks for sharing the fun. must be bit sad it has to stop temporarily i hope.

Good for all of you! Keep up the good work!

That looks awesome! I doubt there are all that many people where I live that use Steemit but I'm only a couple hours away from Seattle!

Beautiful team is THE best !!!

wow this is a nice team

Wow, @timcliff this initiative is great. I hope to have a meetup like that in my area in (New York).

It has nothing to do with my post, so it would be considered spam =/

The fact that I ask for your opinion, is from my perspective a positive thing. At the moment I'm learning to make quality posts. I think yours was pretty good. thnx

I appreciate that :) In general though, sharing links to your posts on other people's blogs is considered bad. If everyone started doing it, then the place would get pretty spammy.
