Audra, Sean, and I are planning to host a small GWC meetup in the Dallas area sometime in the next few months. We originally asked about your interest in a meetup here, but since there’s a good bit of interest I thought I’d create a post so we could work out the details in comments.
We’ll keep an eye out here, and when the meetup comes together we’ll be sure to collect some audio while we’re there for a future podcast!
Not sure just when you are planning on doing this but I’m going to be out of town and unavailable the first two weeks of July, otherwise I’ll make every effort to be there.
I think you all need to make a trek to my faculty recital on October 21. Alas, no BSG inspired music, but we could all go out for drinks in the one bar in this one-daggit town and talk BSG afterwards.
Who am I kidding?!?! 😉
Armando – Where’s your recital? SU? Just curious!
And, I know all too well the one-daggit towns of Northern New York. I think you could have called my home town a half-daggit town. That is, if by town, you mean one visible house as far as you can see in any direction, with over four hundred cattle as neighbors. (Not that they make bad neighbors. I kind of liked them.)
Aww, I am only in Houston, but I never make it up there.
My computer is in and out of commission right now so if I’m unable to post I’ll try to keep watching for any mentioned dates.
Looks like I’ll be in Dallas July 5-8. I do have some wiggle room and can adjust if needed.
Gray, Lt. Slingshot, Wooz, Nick, and Stevearino have all expressed interest in a Dallas meetup. And of course, everyone interested in GWC is welcome!
Here are a few dates that work for the GWC crew:
Saturday July 7th
Wednesday July 11th
Saturday July 14th
Thursday August 2nd
The meetup will be an evening/night event at a restaurant/bar in the Dallas area. I’ll update with an exact location soon.
All y’all who are interested, please comment and let us know what works best for you. We’ll try to set up a date that works for the most people.
Wish I could come…Dallas is home but I’m stuck in Upstate New York. But maybe when we finally move home another one can happen!
Melissa – Funny! I grew up in Upstate and have to travel back there later this summer. I’m guessing you’re up at Ft. Drum? Feel free to email if you want any advice from a former hometownie about how to survive those winters: audra at galacticawatercooler dot com
I’m out of town on July 7, may or may not be back in time for July 11. The other two dates should be ok.
Any of those days would work for me, but the weekend dates would be best.
Also, Jane Espenson (a co-exec producer for BSG) was at the Firefly/Serenity event this past weekend and kinda provided a bit of a spoiler for the ending of BSG. Thought it was kind of interesting. Was anyone else there and caught it?
Had to cancel the trip next week but I’m definitely coming to Dallas soon. I’ll keep Aug 2nd in mind for my next attempt.
Please pick a weekend night (Sat or Sun) or else people from out of town who work will not be able to make it. I’m in Austin, but will make it if it is not a work night.
Tentatively, August 2 should be cool with me. July 14 I’d have to check on.
