Sept. 4th/5th. The tentative details are on page 2 of this thread, about 3/4 of the way down. Look for the photo of the elephant in overalls.

Well, I might as well officially bow out. As we get closer to the GTG the less chance of me making it. It looks like San Antonio is in my future for my birthday weekend instead of spending it with y'all.

Everyone have a great time and I will post soon on the NE TX Vineyard GTG.

AND.... post lots of pics!!!

I just found out that I'll be in Plano the weekend of the GTG. I'm not sure from the thread what day Y'all are planning to meet up. I'd like to attend and bring a guest or 3 with me if possible. :)

edit: I just saw the tentative schedule. Let me see what I can do to hook up with you guys for some or all of the planned activities.

Glad that worked out for you! Looking forward to it. Sounds like we'll have a good crowd.
08/21/2010 11:53:53 PM · #107
I copied the schedule to the first post in this thread, so it'll be easier to find.
08/22/2010 12:32:37 AM · #108
I am looking forward to meeting everyone....I can't wait
08/24/2010 11:15:33 PM · #109
Well, not only will I not be able to make it but circumstances may limit me to be able to coordinate a 'Wine' GTG for east TX.

Oh, and a bump!

If I decide to come at the last minute, I might even fly up from Austin. I wonder if anyone could pick me up at the airport? Should I fly into DFW or Love Field? It's still tentative, but I really want a break. Where is everyone staying?
08/25/2010 10:07:13 AM · #111
Either DFW or Love Field would work. Love field is not too far out of the way, though I work just outside DFW. Are we talking Friday evening maybe? If I knew you were coming I could pick you up after work.
08/25/2010 11:13:31 AM · #112
Not sure yet. Maybe even early Saturday morning. Southwest doesn't go too early, so it would probably be American at DFW around 8:30 arrival.
08/25/2010 11:20:46 AM · #113
Not sure that I could pick you up at 0830 Saturday, since the plan is to meet at 0730 for breakfast. As the planner, I think I need to be there. Perhaps one of the local folks that will be coming from the north Dallas area can swing by and pick you up. We may have to play that by ear.
08/25/2010 04:34:46 PM · #114
Well I'm out. Money issues as usual. Sucks, I was wanting to meet some of the people on here, especially Grog
08/28/2010 12:04:41 PM · #115
Judy...I'll pick you up from the airport, just let me know what time.
As for scooter97, where in Plano will you be? I'm in Frisco. we might be able to work out logistics for everybody, lol.
Have we gotten a complete list of who's in and who's maybe? I'm so jazzed for this!!!

Monster...we'll go shoot with you anytime you are in these parts! No worries. There may someday be another one of these!

I can't come now, simply because the electrician who is finishing up the kitchen reno can't come back til next Saturday and Mike will be at work so I have to be here. Darn it. I guess we'll just have to plan an Austin GTG sometime next year. Think of me fondly. I can't wait to see all of the photos.

Unfortunately I have to work Monday morning, so asking when people are going home and if ya'll will still be here at lunchtime Monday? If yes, YEAH! Let's have an early lunch. I work till 11:30 and then am free fro the rest of the day. Steve, the lucky duck, doesn't have to work at all. So, if you're still here then harass him to get up and take you to the Nature Center for a morning shoot. You'll just have to have all that fun without me though.

Well monday I would like to leave sometime early...no specific time....I would love to go on a shoot with steve

Sounds good to me. Perhaps we can just decide something for Monday based on the upcoming challenges.

I sent an email but want to make sure that anyone who needs it gets to see my list I found. So here goes Hotel list. We live in the 76132 zip code. My suggestion is to stay near us for car pooling if you want otherwise look at other locations near the events. They are kinda all over town. Right now it looks like meeting up Friday afternoon at our house to have dinner and visit is what is going to happen. Maybe looking at playing a bit close by with cameras is also a possibility.

I am also inviting anyone who is still in town to have dinner with us on Sunday. If you are eating here, then toss your name into the pot so I know how many I'm cooking for. How about Mexican for Friday night and Italian for Sunday., otherwise known as Tacos and Spaghetti. Please let me know if there are any dietary issues I need to be concerned about. I'm open to suggestions though but thought that you guys might like some chill time and save a bit of money by not eating out for all meals.

I'm looking forward to meeting everyone.

Let me know if anyone from up this way is going.(Frisco-McKinney area) Maybe we can car pool? :)

Would be a bummer driving by myself, but will if I need to.
