Any Interest In A Dallas Area Meetup?

We had a great time at the San Francisco meetup, and I remember a few people asking for Texas — you know, “central coast” — meetups. Are any of you interested in maybe getting together somewhere around Dallas in the next few weeks?

If so, let us know in comments and we’ll see if we can pick a day/place/time where all three of us can make it — and as many of you can as well. If not, we’ll just see you on the podcast as usual.

    Sounds cool! Go for it.

  2. Gray says:

    Most likely I can be there. I’ll be up there at some point within the next few weeks, the timetable is pretty flexible for the proposed visit so when yall have some dates in mind, let us know.

  3. Chuck says:

    Granger: You could make it in the next few weeks, then?

  4. Armando says:

    Wish I could, guys, but I’m nowhere near Texas. 🙁

  5. fuzzyelf says:

    I’m soooo far behind!!!

  6. BernUnit says:

    Not a chance I’d make it, since I’m in Montana, but it’s a great idea! Go for it!

  7. Moe says:

    If anybody wants to come over to Geneva, Switzerland we can talk….

  8. fuzzyelf says:

    Stop by Fresno, California anytime!

  9. Audra says:

    All these invitations make me giddy with glee! Now I wish I had my own Viper (or raider) to fly and see everyone!

  10. Raemani says:

    While I won’t be able to make to TX anytime soon, if you guys are ever in the city of Brotherly Love (aka Philadelphia) or NY (just a train ride away) or Baltimore (I have family there) let me know

  11. Mike P says:

    I second Raemani! When are you coming east? I’m just outside Philadelphia (as well as you, Raemani? We could start a Watercooler fan club chapter! )

  12. Lt. Slingshot says:

    Hey guys,

    I have a trip coming up to Big D in the next 4-6 weeks. It would be great to meet you guys and take a little of the sting off a trip I wasn’t really looking forward to. If you do find a viper or raider lying around be sure to stop by Denver during your worldwide tour. 🙂

  13. Audra says:

    Lt. Slingshot – Not only would it be great to meet you, but the GWC crew would be glad to show you around, if you’ve got a little time. As long as you don’t reveal any of our superhero secrets…

  14. Raemani says:

    Mike P – which side of the city? You are only the second person I found in this area that are BSG fans, I am sure they are around, I just haven’t come across them.

    I am on the Northeast side in Bucks

    Here is one Dallas resident who’s on board. Just started listenting to your podcast and I’ve enjoyed it immensly. Too bad my friend borrowed my Season 1 DVDs…two months ago…and has only watch the mini-series…I want my disc back.

  16. Gray says:


    My friend’s parents have had my S1 DVD’s for about the same time. I’m leery of calling because I don’t want them to feel rushed but I’m on the verge of buying new ones.

  17. Mike P says:

    Raemani — I am in Delaware County and I work in Center City.

    This brings up something I just e-mailed a question about to our hosts, but here it is for the group’s consideration: should we have / do we want some way to contact other GWC-ers directly, something akin to private messages on other forums? Can we do that without violating privacy concerns or terms of use?

    Not being a web programmer, I don’t know how much extra work this would make for our hosts (or how much extra expense it might cause!) — but maybe it is something for consideration? Sure would be fun to bring the on-line frak party into the living room on occasion!

  18. Pike says:

    Mike P, Another forum user and I have traded emails by posting a request here in this forum. For the number of such requests likely to happen, it seems easier for the GWC gang to handle it on a case by case basis.

  19. Chuck says:

    Pike’s on the money. If both parties indicate a desire to share information, I’ll hook the two of you up via email.

  20. Raemani says:

    Works for me – feel free to pass my e-mail along to Mike P. Always good to have other BSG and GWC fans to chat with, especially if they are in driving distance.

    I was going to suggest that I am registered at Skiffy

  21. Nick says:

    Absolutely! I’d definately show up for a Dallas event. (not that far a drive from Ft. Worth)

  22. Chuck says:

    Gray, Slingshot, Wooz, Nick: Do you have any dates in mind?

  23. Nick says:

    I’m pretty flexible. We talking about a mid-week meet up or something on the weekends? A mid-week dinner might be nice. I could definately sell that to the wife.

  24. Mike P says:

    Have you guys considered adding a Frappr map to the website? That way everyone can indicate where they are.

  25. Gray says:


    I have Friday’s off now so that makes the trip a lot easier and more practical. The only weekends I can’t make it would be June 30 or July 7.

    As long as I get a bit of advance notice, I can clear my schedule and be there.

    So if anyone else has some suggestions, I’m all ears.

  26. Stevearino says:

    Dallas would be great. Been listening to the podcast for a bit, never posted before, but it would be neat to hang out with some fans sometime.

  27. Lt. Slingshot says:


    Probably the weekend after the 4th of July. Dallas in July… what am I thinking? 🙂

  28. Gray says:

    Should be nice and drought-y there by then. Anything to get out of the humidity of Southeast Texas though.
