    Well, it's that time again. This will be the 5th year in a row that I'm hosting this party and we always seem to have a pretty good time...though beer helps. :p
    The party itself will be on Saturday, June 24th here in sunny Tulsa, Oklahoma. This year it will be co-hosted by our very own stephen 210 at his spacious estate.
    Posting here is not neccesary but if you would like to attend just shoot me a PM for meeting times and directions. If you need a place to crash, I MAY be able to assist with that as well.
    Also, during the day that Saturday, you may want to attend the Trek Expo (details below) and the party will be more of an evening thing. Just a reminder: There will be alcohol and cigars so bring children at your own risk. :lol

    I had planned on making it last year but it all kind of fell through. I guess I'll have to see how fuel prices are in a few weeks. :p (My bouncy ol' pickup sure is thirsty.) Looking forward to making it out there this year if possible. I really don't have anything much to show new but I look forward to seeing and handling a lot of cool stuff.

    PJ

    Maybe Darth Cynthia and Chris, and maybe Propfan would like to all get together to defray costs for the run up to Big T?? Anyone else in DFW wanna go?

    Aren't they in or close to Norman? I'm in Dallas, remember... I'd just be coming up 75 to Durant then on up to Tulsa. Well, I have a bud here that might wanna come along so we can split the costs. I'll see how it turns out. Anyone else from Dallas wanna go?

    I've got a 350Z. I get petty good mileage when I behave... I just misbehave most of the time. Problem being the Z doesn't haul anything but *, and only two of those.

    I've got a Subaru Forester. It sits four people comfortably plus has storage space and a travel rack on top. It gets good gas mileage too.

    For the record, I drove up to Funky's place once from Plano. It was about four hours if I remember right. Left by 8:00a and was there by Noon. I'd be up for splitting gas and costs to get up there and have a good time with everyone...co'beer, whiskey...

    Got my plane ticket already. :)

    With the price of gas, it's actually cheaper for me to fly from Houston to Tulsa than to drive my gas guzzler V-8 muscle car :p


    Can't wait to see all you guys in Tulsa and get tosted :D ..... Oh, and the Trek con would be cool too.


    Nicholas

    P.S. I wron't be bring any props to show off this time since I don't trust the airlines with my baggage anymore.

    Sure I can carry the props on the plane with me... but I don't even want to think about what airport security will do to me when they see a big-a$$ Endo pulse plasma rifle sticking out of my backpack :eek

    In response to a few PM'd questions, if you don't have room in your car or if you're flying, you are more than welcome to send props ahead to my address and they will be waiting for you here by the time you arrive. I'll be more than happy to send them back up to you on Monday.

    Well, looks like I'm free for the weekend. I'd expected to be on call, but the boss said "get outta here." :) Never been to a Trek Con before...does this make me a sci-fi geek??? :lol

    Who else is going?

    So what can we bring to this thing? Chips, dip, burgers, soda, etc, etc?

    Watch it, Serenity Boy. Don't make me call your Dad.

    Bring whatever you can. Food, soda, dessert, beer, cigars, bananas, unicycles, manhole covers, shoe inserts, heating pads, you know, the usual stuff.

    Just don't trust Armando to bring th GOOD stuff ... we're still getting over the one big disappointment of the last prop party, where he was responsible for the dancers and Halo helmet. ;)

    Since I'm flying I thought of sending my props ahead to Funky's place.


    But I done't know who I can trust more.....

    For the airline not to lose or damage my luggage.......

    Or for Funky to sent my props back after the party :D

    Yah, the more the merrier...and cheaper. ha. So we will be leaving DFW pretty early then? I left Plano at about 8:00 or a little after and got to Tulsa before noon. I got a couple of things in the mail this past week that I'm going to bring but they wont take much room.

    I am at Galveston Island about 45 miles south of Houston so it would be about a 10 hour drive for me...I like Houston Robo's Ideal about flying..it would be a lot cheaper.....Kevin, Rick and Auston are in OKC....If I know Funky and 210 it will be one heck of a fun party time

    PM me guys if you need my number. The plan as it stands will be going to the con around noon then heading to the party around 4. If you guys would like to bring something, let me know and I can send some suggestions, or just wait till you get here. :)

    I still have every intention of coming. My dog has been sick for several weeks. She hasn't eaten since Monday. I'm really worried about her, but I don't know what more I can do for her if I stay home. She's not all that old, but she's suffering from a blood parasite. She's been on drugs for several weeks now and steroids for the last few days.

    The worst thing about it all is I was hoping to finish up a few things so I could have some different things on hand to show. With this going on, I just haven't felt like working on it.

    Evan, by all means, i've met your pup, very sweet dog. If you need to stay with her, I can certainly understand. If anything changes (hopefully she'll feel better) you've got a place to stay. :)

    Hey, ya have to take care of the important things in life...everything else is just stuffing. I'd like to go to the party, but if ya wind up needing to stay close to home I do understand and am totally fine with it. In fact, my girlfriend had hinted about going with her out of town but I told her I had plans...maybe we should put the trip off for both our sakes.

    Armondo, would you and Evan both drop me a PM with your contact numbers just in case...

    As usual, smokin' party. Many beers were drunk, many stories were told, many butts were grabbed (or was that just Richie's?). Many thanks to our gracious host, stephen 210 for allowing us to come into his otherwise quiet life and turn it into a zoo for one night. I also want to apologive to Steve for lighting his grill on fire (yes, you read that correctly.) :lol If anyone took pics (and I think several people did) let's get to postin'.
