I'll be there.
Jbritt - Houston (room booked)

Just to let you know, there are no more courtyard queen queen or courtyard king rooms left. They do still have courtyard upstairs cabanas for the group rate though. I will have an open bed, so if anyone wants to half the price with me, I am cool with it.

Awesome, glad to hear you are making it out! and thanks for the heads up on hotel info. Btw I am pretty sure there will be people looking to split a room.

Cool hope to see you there! We are going to try and have a "pre-state meet cruise" for the DFW folks so hopefully you can get to know us a bit better as well. If you do end up coming the DFW crew heads out in mass together Friday morning. There will be a thread in the gulf section as we get closer to the meet.

Added the Itenerary to the OP. Big note for everyone. Everything on Friday has been moved up an hour, this means we will be eating supper at 7 instead of 8 so plan accordingly!

Friday:
Folks drive into town, check into the hotel, kick back, relax and socialize with other 8 owners as they roll into town, then go out to dinner

Saturday:
Mainly driving most of the day. Breaks for lunch and ice cream (the real reason for the trip). We'll get back into town late afternoon, typically time to wind down a little, then meet up for dinner / raffle / socialize. Typically, we'll have after dinner parties that will go late into the night.

Sunday:
Wrap up, final socializing, check-out, drive home.

I'd recommend getting in late Friday night versus Saturday morning just because there's going to be a lot of driving and you'll need to have your senses fully available to you. I know there are some folks looking for someone to split a room with, so you might pair up with someone if you want to lower the cost of the room.

A good number of us will be doing the same. You may check and see if any Houston folks are going to group up and head over together. From DFW, several of us will caravan down (including folks from Oklahoma). It definitely makes the drive go faster.

Hey guys, me and the wife are thinking about coming down to DFW Thursday night before the meet and then heading out with the Dallas crew Friday morning to the hotel. Would anyone in the Dallas area happen to have a place for me and the wife to crash for Thursday night and then follow them to where everyone in Dallas is meeting to head out Friday morning? We are clean responsible people. She is 28 and I am 29, I am exmilitary and respectful. If someone could let us sleep there, we would appreciate it. We have our hotel booked already for the Texas8 and if I need to I will get one Thursday night in the Dallas area. Thanks

Yes, I'm currently hosting two others but should have enough room for you as well. If things change I will try to track down another DFW member with room so you don't have to get two hotels for the weekend.

I have a 3 bedroom house in Ft Worth. Renesisjim and a buddy of his are staying as well as another member from our area. I have a King in the master, a queen in the guest, and a twin in the babies room. I've asked my wife to find other sleeping arrangements for the night as well as the baby so everyone should be comfy. You are more than welcome to sleep on the king with your wife while Jim and his buddy use the queen, and I get the twin. I have a futon mattress the DFW member can use as well as an air mattress for anyone else that wants to stay as well. PM me for further details such as time and address etc.
