If one needs to daven mincha and the only minyan that is close by is davening an early maariv can one daven their mincha shmoneh esri with their maariv shmoneh esri and then daven maariv with a different minyan later? I remember seeing this idea somewhere (sources please).

I'm lookin' but I can't find it. Maybe it's not. –  Seth J Jul 8 '12 at 3:38
@sam even if it is a dupe, you don't need to delete just close. dupes can be useful as signposts to the main q. –  Double AA Jul 8 '12 at 4:19
Can this question be generalized to "Can I still accomplish Tefillah beTzibbur if I'm praying a different prayer than the rest of the Tzibbur?" or is there something about Mincha/Maariv that I'm missing? –  Double AA Jul 8 '12 at 4:21
