Texas Throwdown Planning
This thread is growing out of the Battle of the Alamo throwdown thread. I'm making it a new thread to try to gather more attention. The recent San Antonio mini-throwdown only had about 4 of us, which is fine because it was on short notice. In that thread, there was a number of people who wished they could make it, but the date didn't work for them. There were also several more who wanted to attend a throwdown, but San Antonio was too far away.
I figure the best way to get a large throwdown is to begin planning as far in advance as possible. From the general information in the last thread, it seems that generally, the timeframe that would work for the greatest number of people would be somewhere between roughly August and October. As for location, either the Dallas or Houston area seems to be ideal.
If you're interested in attending a Throwdown of significant size, please post here and let us know. Please try, if you know in advance, to include what dates would be best, and how far you might be willing to travel if we get it put together.
For me, any dates can be made to work if I have some notice. Weekends are best, and summer would be preferable, but I can make just about anything work. For travel, I'd be willing to travel as far as Dallas to the north or Houston to the east. Possibly farther if there's a large turnout.
Yes the next TD I plan I'm going to try and NOT just pull a date out of my ass and hope everyone shows up. My reasoning was to cut out the bargaining that goes with picking a date and just post one and hope people show.
My only other excuse is that the TD was my evil plot to grow my Judo club by two guys.
and it worked.*evil laugh*
Is it fair to assume that you'll be down for a TD sometime later this year Beak?
Yikes August or Dallas I maybe here in Texas or halfway around the country, but a July or June date would work amazing.
I'm open to June or July. All depends really on how many people want to come, and what dates work for most.
Is there a Austin based club? I would love to come to SA but I have no car and curently get around on the bus
Sure, there is a number of Bullshidoka in Austin. If that's where we can get the most people, then great. I just mentioned Dallas and Houston because they were requested by posters in the other thread. If we do end up in Dallas or something, it's entirely possible we could find someone to give you a ride. Hell, I'd do it.
One out of state vote for Dallas.
Maybe Ralph Severe-lyfat would make an appearance.
We can bait him with cookies and certification in throwdown appearances. The man loves his questionable certifications.

I would really like a Texas Sized throw down. I did find a group on this site for Austin but i think the group is dead. Well I should not say that, I think life just gets in the way. I am off today and can't wait untill class starts Most of my sorness has gone away. Taking a shower as hot as you can works wonders.
