I'll be visiting Austin soon and would love the chance to meet up with DPC'rs! Sunday the 6th or Monday the 7th are the days I'm free to wander the streets with other camera wielding folks. Anyone want to show me the town?

(I'm also interested in suggestions on "must-see" places.)

UPDATE:
So far, we're looking at Sunday, May 6--proposal below

And the potential list looks like this:

' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Army of nOne
' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' kelmat(?)

Still need place(s) and time...
We'll meet at the crack of dawn...sometime between early morning and brunch...
...at the Courthouse or on 6th Street....(erm...possibly the same thing???? Doubtful...but heck, I'm from nowhere's around these parts...)

If any of the locals would be available, I'd drive down from Friso for the weekend. I've lived in TX for 15 years and I've never been to Austin!

Looks like there are a couple of events that might be of interest:
Cinco de Mayo Festival
and at the Zilker Botanical Gardens Satsuki Matsuri

OH COOL.

I live in Austin as does yanko and arsenal. Maybe SandyP can drive up from San Antonio.

I'll try and alert the central Texas group.

Definately interested in this as well. Would have to be on Sunday though.
04/24/2007 06:27:45 PM · #6
I might be able to do it Sunday the 6th, but have to work on Monday.

Austin GTG's are so much fun!!! That would be awesome.

04/24/2007 06:57:37 PM · #8
Yay! SUNDAY is sounding like the day of choice...so let's say Sunday...okay?
:)

(edit: can't spell)

Even though I'm not part of the central TX group, can I come?

I certainly wouldn't stop you! I'm part of the never-been-to-Texas-group and am hoping they let me get off the plane. :-)

I am new to the forum. What is the Central Texas Group?
04/24/2007 11:45:25 PM · #13
Hi Greg, welcome!!!

The Central TX Group is just the peeps in central TX on the site. There are a few of them. I'm considered N. TX I guess, lol. But I still like bugging those guys...they're a hoot! If ya wanna come along on the 6th...let Jutilda know you are interested. I think she was trying to pull the gang together.

Well, they'd better. You're the reason this wacky crew is getting together anyway...lol! You jump started what we've been threatening for awhile. (Well, SandyP and I discussed it once, lol!)

I would be interested again. I'm not sure if I will actually be in town on that Sunday though. I'll let somebody know as I find out more.

The ladybird Johnson wildflower Center might be a cool place to go. She is responsible for Austin having so many beautiful wildflowers.

I just remembered something. I can't go on either of those days :( Sunday is my little granddaughter's birthday and we're having a party for her at my house and Monday I have to work :(

Darn! That makes me sad.

I'm out of pocket that weekend, but if anyone is interested in meeting up in North Houston anytime, feel free to hit me up.

So on Sunday - what time??? Are we doing Austin or San Antonio?

I vote for Austin. All in favor, raise your hand.

My hand is way, way high for Austin...since that's where I'll be without a car.... Of course, I might accept a ride somewhere. :)

I believe I'll be at the Radisson at 111 Cesar Chavez at Congress. (Freeloading on hubby's conference is so much fun!)

How about we meet at the Radisson or someplace within walking distance or...does Austin have reasonable public transportation?

(By "reasonable" I mean navigable and reliable and timely...)
