Texas Meet (Saturday, March 10th, 2012) [Location Inside]

post #1 of 615
Thread Starter 

See post 2 for current guest and gear list.

 

(1/29/12) I'll be putting together a list of suggested dates in March from people in the thread. We'll come to some sort of agreement.

 

(1/30/12) The location will be in Pflugerville (about 15 minutes outside of Austin). PM me if you want the exact info.

 

(2/2/12) The official date is Saturday March 10th. I'll be there from about 9am on so you're welcome to come hang out as long as you want. 

 

(2/12/12) Official time is 9am - 6pm. Packing up should begin at 5pm.

 

----- Location (I'll probably put up some signs) Parking for the first few people can be at the house, other will need to drop off gear and park at the baseball fields just down the road. 

 

1711 Serenity Dr.

Pflugerville, TX 78660

 

 

----- [Original Post]

So. I know there's been a lot of interest both from the people at the last Austin meet, and people in the area that didn't make it to do another meet. Most of what I've been seeing is DFW and Austin (and a few Houstonites in there, too). 

 

Anyway...I think it's time to stop talking and try to start making serious plans for sooner rather than later. The last meet had a great turn out and I'd only want this one to be bigger and better. 

 

First thing's first...location. I think that Austin is a good spot for it...being in between Houston and Dallas, but that's of course up to the other people interested. As of now I have an empty home available (might go up for sale, but seems it would be available for at least a few months), and we could of course talk to some of shops around town to see if anyone's up for sharing their space again. 

 

Secondly...people (of course). We had a good turn out last time but since that meet I have seen a lot more Texans pop up on Head-fi, so I know it could be bigger and better this time around. More variety, and more new friends. 

 

-----

 

Of course PM me with anything I should add here. I'll be reserving the next post for a Guest/Gear List (like the last meet thread).

 

I know we can make it happen again, guys. Had way too much fun for it not to happen again.

I sent PMs to pretty much everyone that made it to the Austin meet last time so I'm definitely hoping for another good turn out.

post #5 of 615

I'd love to make it (since I utterly failed last time)

post #6 of 615

I signed up to go last time but wasn't able to at the list minute. But I'd love to give it another go.

post #7 of 615

I'd definitely be able to do Austin again.  I highly doubt I could get away with traveling for something like this though... the wife acceptance factor would be low.  :)

post #8 of 615

Still interested, if I can make it happen, I will do so. Probably have better luck this time around too planning so early and ill be pretty much done with school.

post #9 of 615

I plan on being there since I missed the last one. Look forward to hearing some new gear.

post #10 of 615

Sounds good, but what time are we talking? I might be able to make it to Austin over a weekend this fall, but next semester I will have practically no life until summer.

 

 

EDIT: I should have read the title rolleyes.gif. Well, I'm interested. Unfortunately I can't guarantee I'll make it.

I'd try to make it, depends on if I can acquire a vehicle or not.

post #12 of 615

Count me in!

post #13 of 615

I can probably make it, depending on the actual date. Pretty ambivalent about where (Dallas, Houston or Austin), but there are plenty of Texas folk that we ought to do a really big meet. Maybe the Houston crowd will bless us, and more of the DFW guys can stand for a 6th Street outing.

 

In. You know what I'll have.

How are those Thunderpants treating you? Have impressions or review anywhere?
