Parking coords (park in this general area and we'll meet at these coords):

N44 54.413 W93 30.805

These coords bring you next to the TonkaDome which is just south of Minnetonka High School. Here's a nice description provided by TonkaJen on how to get to the coords:

Go in the main high school entrance and continue past the west entry toward the tennis courts on your right. Just EAST of the tennis courts is a road that looks like it only goes to the Ice Rink - take that right. There is a road then that runs along the south side of the tennis courts that winds down a hill to the Tonka Dome which is the Football field in warmer weather. There is plenty of parking. You will find a trail from the west side of the bathrooms that will lead to the groomed trail. If the lower parking lot is full, you may need to park at the top of the hill and walk down to the coords.

We'll do GC245Y5 (I Found My Thrills) and GC246V3 (Can't Talk, I'm Placing a Cache!) There may also be a puzzle nearby. Wink We'll leave GC21CRR (Before the KGB©) for pre-caching! Lots of walking tonight!

Maynard's in Excelsior for post -caching festivities!

I have a new hiding location to scout, but after that I will be in the area for some precaching.
