Texas: Is there any State wide meets?

Just wondering, is there any state wide meets that go on? Like have everyone meet up in Austin for a BBQ or something? Just an idea, thought it would be fun.

Hopefully someone puts something together, I think we could have a pretty big turnout if we had it in Austin...pretty central location for everyone.

If its on a weekend with no autocross scheduled I'd go. I should be able to drag a few people from Houston there.

Cool. I am wanting to see if we can get something together in mid to late September on a weekend, maybe even make it a saturday/sunday thing if people would want to do that. I do not know Austin all that well so someone would need to figure out what the best place would be to meet up. Are you guys wanting to do a BBQ kinda thing and then go on a cruise? Lets get some ideas thrown out there and get this thing going. I am pretty sure we could get a bunch of cars from teh DFW area to come.

Recently we are discussing locations.... everyone wants it in their neck of the woods which is always an issue with these types of meets.

Secondly lodging and events... (of course events sometimes dictates location).

Any thoughts?

With gas prices being a concern for many we have considered the idea of a campout at a statepark.

This would eliminate the need for hotel lodging saving most people between 500 and 100$.

As far as the date. I was thinking the weekend AFTER mid-terms (for those college kids out there).... This would be the end of October.

Next month is Sevenstock and some of us will be making plans to be in California.

This will give everyone 2 months lead-in time to get prepared and ready to go.

I have access to a RV so I will drag my dads *** to the event since I end up being the the mechanic at all his Jeep club mod days. But camping may be a bit uncomfortable until everyone gets to know each other.

How would not knowing people make camping uncomfortable? I never considered this.

Additionally, most of the state parks that would be considered offer cabins or other accommodations in addition to simple campsite hookups.

If we work with my plan I'm thinking the last weekend in October

That would be the weekend of the 24th through the 26th.

I'm scouring calendars for possible conflicts or other issues that might prevent the event.

So what amount of effort would you put in if it were somewhere else?
