Texas Halloween Meetup 2011

Date / Time:

Saturday 10.29.11

4:00 PM to 8:00 / 9:00-ish PM

 

Information:

Hey guys, it's time to start planning for the 5th annual Texas Halloween Meetup!

 

The date of this one is the Saturday that's two days before Halloween.

 

Unlike some previous years this will be strictly a one location meetup. We will not be going to a haunt, theme park or event afterward.

 

Please bring some sort of scary mask if you've got one, and if you've got a costume it would be awesome if you wore that as well. (Hey, it's a Halloween themed meetup!)

 

Music will be provided by a portable stereo Ph0toN is bringing. If you want to bring cd's, go for it.

 

This is a glowsticking only meetup. Fire poi is strictly prohibited in the area. If you want to do fire poi those of you who do are free to go to another location after the meetup. (Also fire poi is against park regulations.)

 

As always GSC Rules apply:

No Drugs

No Alcohol

No Drama

No Banned Members

No Battlers

No Illegal activities

 

This meetup has been greatly anticipated by many people so it should be one of the best ones of the year. Hope to see you guys there!

 

Event Location:

Towne Lake Recreation Area

1405 Wilson Creek Parkway

McKinney, TX

 

The location of this meetup will be in McKinney, TX, at the Towne Lake Recreation Area, at the same spot we've used countless times before. (The spot you have to cross the bridge to get to - yes we've got multiple spots we've used in the past! :D )

 

We'll meet in the back parking lot of the lake at 4pm and then move to a more secluded location hidden within the trees. The map below shows where the parking is, where we're meeting, and a rough sketch of how to get to the location from the parking lot.

The area of the park we're going to be has already been picked out (and used before!) due to it's scary looking nature. Here's some pictures of the area:

I'll be there more than likely.

 

Just got the graphic image for the title done, I'm proud of it. Best looking one I've done for a halloween meet so far I think.

 

Happypants I don't know what you did to write that post but editing it it looks like there was an html explosion lol. We're gonna have to fix that so it can be edited in a timely fashion. :D

You're telling me.

I was sitting there looking at it and wondering just WTF had happened.

It probably didn't help that UTD's wireless internet was flickering in and out as I was working on it.

 

EDIT: Maybe it's just my laptop. But idk. The internet can be blamed for many things. I hope that it's just me that sees this mess of HTML.

Hmm. Right now, I don't think there is much that I can do for this post.

I'll probably have to rewrite it on one secure connection and get that graphic back in.

This looks awesome, wish I could go.

 

Don't forget to also make an identical facebook event page for it as well. And also talk to Ph0ton about getting this up on the front page so it gets more attention.

 

You guys all have a blast!

So, I've just got confirmation from PlusOn3.

He'll be making the trek from Sweetwater here to Dallas for this meetup!

Now, we'll have to do less running in our circle, Ph0toN!

Woohoo! 3 people attending!

 

Yes I think our legs and arms would've gotten tired with two of us trying to form a circle. :D

Happypants, do you happen to have any external computer speakers that either run on batteries or plug into a wall socket? I'm going to dig around and see if I can find any but I'm not sure if I'll come up with anything. I've got something special planned for you guys if I can figure this one out.

I do have a stereo that is easy enough to transport that I don't mind taking there.

EDIT: Ph0toN should call me before I leave.

If I can't find any batteries for my little portable stereo then yours would be much appreciated. Also if you have any cd's of 2011 music that would be nice. I've been lagging behind with keeping up with the new music this year so all I'll be bringing is 2010 and previous stuff.

 

However, I've got a completely different idea in mind other than music with a set of powered speakers. I may try disconnecting the pair I've got on this computer and bringing them, they just don't work very well.

 

And lastly, I'll probably arrive around 5:00. I just woke up and it's already 3:11. Gotta get myself in order, I stayed up way way too late last night.

"To all the people who didn't come, you missed a great thing." - PlusOn3

 

Anyways, this was a great meetup!

It was amazing being able to see Ph0toN and PlusOn3 this weekend.

Even a meetup with only 3 people was a true GSC Meetup.

Looking forward to doing it again sometime.

A video should be coming soon.

And now, quotes.

 

PlusOn3 - "Is that him?"

LHP - "Ph0toN is neither bald nor mexican."

 

At the Panda Super Buffet:

After hearing a load of dishes fall and crashing around on the ground a random person in the back says, "YOU touched it!"

 

PlusOn3 - "All this meat!!" (We were watching Epic Meal Time.)

You'll have to PM, IM, or FB message me the link to the account soon.

And could you point me in the direction of the watermark jpg?

It's probably somewhere obvious, isn't it?

Quite sorry you missed this meetup.

We'll definitely need to plan another one so that more people can make it out here.

I should have photos and a video of the meetup done by the 12th, at the latest.

Just depends on how much work I get from classes and how I handle my spare time.

I'll be sure to upload them here and possibly get the photos on FB.

DERP FOR DOUBLE POST

As much as I hate it, life has gone and screwed me again.

My lappy crashed some time ago.

This severely limits my video editing possibilities and my access to the internet.

For the time being, I'm running off of an Android tablet.

Sooo this video/pictures will probably be up in December.

They'll be up before the year's over.

Guaranteed.
