we already had a central texas meet in austin. that was the texas round up. now this time its going to be in houston. next time after this might be dfw. then who knows after that, it might be austin again.

but honestly(not to be mean), this world doesn't revolve around you. and we cant just have a meet in your area near you because you wont leave outside a 150mi radius. the meets are not ment for drivability by distance, its ment for location. some might have to drive the longest distance and some might not. its whatever the city has to offer. with a location anywhere in texas, not everyone will be happy by the distance.

id say, suck it up and have a blast with the greatest texas foci group.

and with the texas foci population it seems like majority is within a triangle of dfw, autsin, and houston.

and the central city is brownwood, texas

no.... i didnt mean to ruffle any feathers -- but i just thought that i would be neat to have a texas meet in the more top part of the state -- where everyone could have a different experiance than the typical cities -- thats all my sugesstions were--

so......... i guess someday i will suck it up but i just thought i would be time for a change of scenery -- out in the open part of the state --where you wouldnt be in traffic all the dang time --and also i think that the cities that i mentioned do have alot to offer -not just b/c i live here --i really do think, that if the group came to this part of the state, that it would have alot of fun and be able to drive in the endless sun and not have to worry about rain or other crap----

sooooooo thats where i stand --

Tom-e and i are both from abilene (i live in lubbock now) and i can honestly say that is some spots you have to slow down to 10-15 mph -- and some you can breeze through --- --of coarse they are more out in the country in buffalo-gap (south)-- 15mins away from abilene--- plus you will drive through a state park twoard Lake abilene -- im telling ya --its a good place to test your car --lot of "twistees" down that way --

to the north -- Lake Ft. Phantom-- decent fun roads out that way to..

plus alot of good home cooking resturants

im just pleading my case

thanks for atleast seeming somewhat intrested

ps : heres a map(hope it works) --play with is and you can see our twistees
http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&tab=wl <---- doesnt take you to the right map--- youll have to search for abilene-- and the play around with it

look past Lake Abilene -- lots of twistees

Fletcher, it is a great idea, however a whole group of people drive to meet up with another group of people. Not just one or two. My suggestion would be to start recruiting in your surrounding area and build a Fanatics crew for the lower panhandle region. When you look at the texas map, notice the footprint DFW, Houston and San Antonio have.
Look at the numbers here: http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=167479
This is what you need to work on. Build on the Lubbock crew.

thanks for the sugesstion CAPTCOMPUTER,

but..... believe when i say this:

Ive honsetly tried on here and on the street. Every one that I see that has a focus is either female or old (here in Lubbock) and the occasional guys that I see driving a Focus pretty much wont give me the time of day --- I try to talk to them and they dont even know what type of focus they have.

I guess I should print out the pimp-cards and start recruiting <----- btw/ where are the pimpcards (what forum)

so........ back to what I asked orignally --- I know that having people meet around the Abilene is a strecth but I think it would be well worth the effort-- alot of smaller town fun mixed w/ great country roads
