I think all that attended the Houston meet in February had a great time.  I know I had a blast.  Thanks again to jautor for hosting!  There has been talk of doing another one and I wanted to gauge the interest from the group on a time and place.

 

I just finished my room last weekend and will throw my name in the hat to host. I would also be open to any others that want to host the event.  I know Houston is a big town and we will be coming from all over.  I live in League City on the SE side of town.

 

What timing works for everyone for the next GTG?  I bet the dance card for most of us is already full for May.  Is June, July or August any better? 

 

Do we want to do this as a regular event going forward?  We could do a 1st of year mid year kind of thing.  Or more or less often?

 

I look forward to hearing everyone's thoughts and getting together soon.

 

Ron

Sooner the better - we don't want the popcorn flavor to overwhelm that "new theater" smell before we get there!

Saturdays left in May are mostly still open for me, but I won't be the problem... biggrin.gif

Looking forward to it!

Sounds great to me! I can't wait to see and hear your theater! Anytime after the first week in June is good for me. Lots of birthday parties and graduations to go to before then.

I'm interested, although until we have a definite date I wouldn't know if I can make it. Will spread the word to the people I know. smile.gif

Since I missed Jeff's, I'd love to get in on this and check out your theater and meet some of you guys. May is shot to hell, but June looks pretty good for any Saturday.

BTW, avtexan - love the avatar!!!

Hi Ron,

Be sure to keep me in the loop on what date you settle on. I am tied up the first weekend of June with THE Show at Newport Beach, but can likely make an excuse to get there if my schedule allows.

Guys, did we ever figure out a date for this thing or is everyone still unsure? Should we go for after the 4th of July sometime? Maybe July 12th or 13th?

I was wondering what happened to this. It's up to avtexan if he still wants to or what date. It would be cool for Mark Seaton to show up as well.

Oops. Make that 7/12 or 8/9. I just found out that Randy Jackson from Zebra will be performing Led Zeppelin hits with the Houston Symphony on 7/26.

Either works for me too. Earlier the better because I can't wait to see your theater!


The Houston Symphony/Led Zeppelin concert sounds like it would be awesome to go to.

I'll be coming home from a cruise on the July 5th. I don't know how long I will be hungover and sunburnt or if I'll even have gas money after the casino bends me over. July 12th may be tough on me. So, maybe August 9th would be best. That's my vote.

August 9th is best for me, but I can do July 12 if that's the consensus.

I am committed elsewhere on the 8/9, but can possibly make 7/12.

Looks like that's easier said than done. I can do 7/12 if everybody else can. I think having Mark show up would be pretty cool. I guess I'll just spend less time at the casino and more time at the bar on this cruise so I won't come home so poor.

It looks that I'll by in Dallas that weekend in July, but is not 100% yet. So maybe for me.

I live in the Dallas/Ft Worth area but would love to try an come down sometime. Probably not going to happen this year since I have two little ones but maybe next year if you guys plan on doing it again. Sounds like the host this year has a Seaton setup which I would love to hear. I just ordered one CAT 8 for my center channel but plan on getting a full setup over time if the CAT 8 works out.
