Houston Coming Up

So Ladies and Gentleman ... We have come along way. Lots have changed since the beginning of last year. Throughout the year we have put Focus Enthusiasts in Houston together and hope to see new comers jumping into the scene with us in time. A dying breed of enthusiasts has now began a turn around with new members and faces.

SO LETS KEEP IT THAT WAY AND KEEP ON MOVING!!!

- Lets Start with our usual Monthly meetings. We have collectively decided that Sundays is our best days to get together but if anybody has a day that they would like to see turn into a meet we can accommodate with a group poll. If you have any ideas for meets post them up. We need to figure a new place for February. For those of you who are new ... We are going to try to hit different areas of the city to give everyone a chance to SAVE GAS and take a mini road trip.

- Special Events: Well there are quite a few events coming up ... and we will keep posting ahead of time to give people a chance to request time off. And even get a group together to show as one. For instance in April, there is Fun Ford Weekend and Chris has been getting info. I will work with Chris to see what else we need to get a group spot. He has contact with one of the head guys of the event to work with. I hope to see some of you guys jump in with us.

-ALSO: Our Big Texas Round Up is coming up. So get ready for that as well everyone. If you missed out out on the last one ... check out the link:
http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=170818

- More Events: Well Myself and FlipsideSVT (Cody) have decided to jump into AutoX. If you guys are interested please post up and join us. Or come and support. This is a monthly event and last month Cody was the only focus there ... in a long time. I will join in for February.

Catch you guys later,

-RAY-

We did have one last fall, but since it was a 1 day trip with no Hotel cost and just gas and lunch, we figured we could do one in the Spring and one in the Fall and let FocusFest have the summer.
Especially if FF is far north this year there will be a limited number who can make it and will need something more local to toss in the memory book.

With that being said, thank you Raymond for bringing that topic to light.
For those in Houston, you get to make some reasonable suggestions for what 30+ people can do in your city.

I think Dave and Busters has the parking lot and dining room to handle a crowd like ours. If anyone knows of another place better than Dave and Busters (yea right!) that can provide a whole section of the lot to us and a whole section of dining room, then feel free to suggest it.

Houston is a metropolitan city and there just isnt any roads like Lime Creek I can imagine, so we need something else to start the day. It can't cost to much, because people need to save money for FocusFest if they plan to go.

We were out Gas and Lunch last time. So we need to keep it reasonable.

I'll let the suggestions begin. Again, it is Houston, not Corpus or some other town.

Fall will be in DFW, so we will work on that one.

-Capt

Well, for the little of time that I have lived in Houston ... there isn't too many "Free Things" to do.

Lets see ... if you want to sight see ... There is
1) Battleship Texas (La Porte) $5 Each
2) Space Center Houston (NASA) $17 Each - probably not a place for us
3) The Tunnel Walks (Downtown) Shopping area - $5 Tour
4) Kemah Boardwalk (Kemah)

Of course there is the fun things:
1) Track 21 (Katy) $20 Each - OR LASERTAG $6 Each ... would be fun shooting each other down ...
2) Houston Raceway Park (Baytown) $20


I will think of some more ... but that's all I have.

For food:
Dave and Busters
ChaChos
Katz's

Well as much as Chachos is the OG Focus meeting place, it doesnt handle 30 cars very well unless we rent the place out.

Laser Tag might seem a lil lame to some, but find out how many on a team.
Maybe we can setup a tourney between the Cities. DFW vs H-Town vs A-Town vs SA. For the Bigger Cities we may have to do a East West split.

Just remember space is an issue if everyone and more show up. I imagine there will be some who missed the last one who wont make that mistake again.

^^^thats a good idea. but i also like the beach too, but who knows. but we can combine 2 places, my idea would be to do track 21 (rent it out maybe with the amount of ppl we got) and then make a trip down to jillians (on i-10 east, sort of near by track 21) and eat out. its a great place to go to, i personally think so, all you have to be is 18 to get in.
