I have been in Austin for a little over a year now, and it would be cool to meet people with the same interest. Any Lightwavers in or near Austin? Top Golf, Dave and Busters, or whatever.... anyone?

I knew I liked William for some reason hehe William you wouldn't reccognize Austin now, it's changed so much in the last 10 years or more. All the really cool old hangout places are gone from downtown and traffic has become a nightmare. :)

I'm not in Austin anymore. I moved one state to the left about 12 or 13 years ago.

I am in Austin. I would LOVE to meet some fellow Wavers. Ones who could teach me new and exciting stuff would be great. If not, they can bring nachos!
Thursday-Saturdays work best around my day job. Wednesdays are about 50-50.

And I actually DID drive down to San Antonio to see you guys once. Apparently you weren't expecting guests. :devil:

They had a Ton arcade machine. I could have hung out there all day, but they were working.

I know it's short notice, but I'm going to be in Austin tomorrow, Nov. 2 and Nov. 3 and would love to meet up during the evening if someone wants.

You guys need to take a bar snap shot of you guys getting together and having fun, is it called selfie? group selfie perhaps?, would be fun to see...donīt forget to label the persons in the photos with appropiate ID, and any description needed.

Verlon

Sure - let's do it. Where in Austin? Near the airport?

Wade

I am in Cypress just west of Houston and would make a drive 2 1/2 hours to Austin for coffee, beer or whatever.

At the NW corner of I35 and Ben White (AKA Hey 71), there is a taco place called Cabo Bob"s. It isn't fancy or expensive. We could meet there unless someone has a better suggestion. Sometime in the 6-7 range work?

ok got a text and thread starter is out of town. I am still in. Andy - if you are still game, drop in and say so. I would hate for Wade to drive in from Cypress for just me.

Or you can email me using with google or apple's mail services. My ID in both cases is just like my forum handle, but with a "3" instead of an "e". I'm counting on you guys to be computer savvy enough to connect those dots rather than exposing myself to more spam. :)

Hey Verlon. I sent you an email. Unfortunately,I have to head back to Houston after my meeting wraps up this afternoon and won't be able to meet this evening. I would still be interested in a meet up with everyone in the future. It would be great to know some Texas Lightwavers.

Well two of us managed to get together over a long lunch and talked about a lot of things.

Phase two is drumming up support for a user group. You all do realize that, if we could get enough people together, we could probably persuade Newtek to send someone up from San Antonio to demo LW 2017 stuff. How cool would that be. And that is just the tip of the iceberg. Tutorials, group buy discounts, corporate sponsors and more could all be ours. We just need to get a team together. :devil:

Yes indeed, it was great to get to meet ya V. I hope to do it again soon. If others are down i would like to meet on wed the 23. Let me know if that works with folks. It would me a meet and greet. Then a discussion about what we want the user group to be about.

23rd sounds like fun to me (but I can be a bit flexible if another day is better).

So is anyone want meetvup this wednesday? We can meet at a bar? Cover 2 or 3? Maybe around 645/7ish.

Verlon
11-21-2016, 04:21 PM
I am, but hopefully more than 2 of us. If we can't get enough Wavers, maybe we could broaden the audience some? Maybe include video guys given Austin's film interest?

GraphXs
11-21-2016, 05:03 PM
Yeah...do u know any video guys in the austin area?
