Seriously, since when did the "twin cities" become "Minneapolis"?

Yeah there's still time in the contest for one to pop up on my end of town, but the way it's been going.....

Gotta Go Gotta Throw
is a Disc Golf Shop.

The deal was setup and the owner was excited about visitors to his store. It's in a building with a variety of different businesses. The idea was to have them enter the store. He had a mini-promotion of his own with give-aways to ALL visitors.

1. The coordinates are near Lyndale Ave and the parking lot. A company truck in the lot tipped me off to look in the building.

2. Coordinates/info must have been leaked. People were in the lot last night. The custodian confronted them.

3. The business owner, expecting people in his store, never mentioned it to others. His landlord did not care for people checking out cars, etc.

4. A really cool guy, he's upset about the missed opportunity. He thinks the postcard (?) / sticker was picked up as trash by his custodian.

Who said info was leaked? Maybe they just decided to camp out like Gilby suggested?

If people were in the lot last night looking, info leaked somehow, or the clue was posted sometime last evening (it wasn't at 1am, when I looked).
