    Has anyone contacted Jeff Meininger or Blair?

    Meininger mentioned a desire to play a while back, and Blair is an addict.

    Nils: thanks for the input - tell it to Wild Card tomorrow evening. Yes, WOOT has had some killer deals and some duds - quite a mixture. Hopefully, as their membership and business grows, the good stuff will dominate. Their goal is to have quailty product companies lined up to use WOOT as their overstock/end of model year disposition tool.


    LEE: sorry - I just added via an edit.

    Scott: No, I haven't - I'd like to compile a telephone # list Saturday, so everyone tell me yours and also numbers of those you know who won't attend.

    I'll give Boat Boy (Blair) a call and see if he's checked the thread and see if he can make it. See you guys tomorrow.

    Friday night Update:

    Bogey
    Wild Card
    Big Dog
    Tubes
    The Kid
    Colton (wife for fajitas)
    Stogels (and maybe the missus)
    Lee
    Brewmeister (Dave - another clarinet player from ASB. PHD chemistry prof - brews GOOD beer!)
    Death Wish (will be late - 8:30)

    We have two maybe's:
    Crotch Key (he has FOW - Fear of Wife)
    Barrister (possible house guest anchor - hey, bring the guest with you - we need more wallets)

    We have 9 for sure's on time. Then Death Wish arrives, and maybe Barrister, Full Boat and/or Jeff M will attend, so we'll definitely have enough for two tables. Nils, would you please bring your table top and folding table to set it on?

    Glad to, but someone will have to come by the house first to load it up. Sadly, my back flared up again and I can't even pick up my baby girl (which is breaking my heart not to), so I certainly can't lift the table. Linda is not here, and my neighborhood buds are all playing in the club's golf tournament, but if I can hunt down someone, I'll see if they can load it up for me. If not then no promises.

    Nils, Mark: I can bring Wild Card over to help load 'em up.

    Tequila is good for bad backs ;-)

    DID ANYONE CONTACT THE TWO JEFFS (Meininger and Blair)?

    Mark, I don't have your email, and you have that feature turned on on HTF. I sent you my address & number via PM - if for any reason you don't know how to get HTF PM's just contact Hank, Jonathon, etc and they can give you that info. I'll see you tonight.

    Sorry! Didn't realize I had blocked emails. I got the PM and will be there at 6 if travel plans cooperate.

    Also, I am baking for you guys, so whoever cleans me out in poker has some bad karma coming [​IMG]

    If it's not a problem, one of my friends would like to join us, but we won't be able to be there until after work. Probably arrive at Hanks sometime between 7:30 and 8:00.

    Hank, thanks for hosting. Matt and I had a great time. excellent fajitas as always and that Lemon desert Mark brought was awesome. Looking forward to the next one. Matt is going to talk to his wife about coming to your show at Zilker Park tonight Hank. Even if they can't make it, I'll try to be there. Can you post some details on the time?

    Lots o fun, Hank. If gas prices keep going up, though, I may have to just PayPal Tubes $40 to cut out the middle man. [​IMG]

    HEY!

    Anybody feel like we need to start an Austin HTF contact list? Name/primary phone/email type thing so we can get in touch with each other for poker/speaker building/projector testing/etc?

    Heads-up poker fans, GSN is going to stat broadcasting another game (second season) of High Stakes Poker starting the first week in June. If its anything like the first, it should be well worth watching. [​IMG]

    Lee PM'd me his info, but he's the only one so far to do it. Scott at one time had a pretty good email list of folks for poker games, and Steve has some folks contact info too.

    I'm also putting together a list of Texas DIY'ers. I posted on the Madisound board about it and got several replies, including from Todd O of O Audio and TC2+ fame. If anybody wants on that list too, LMK.
