Welcome to the Destructoid Austin group. This blog is meant for all Dtoiders that are in or near the Texas. The purpose here is to set up community events such as NARPs and any type of get together like conventions, cons, industry events, etc. This is done for and by the community because sometimes, just talking to each other on the Internets isn't enough.
If you want to be added to the friend's list or want to set up some kind of party/event, then please just PM me.
Hey folks, you may remember me as the guy that comes along every once in a while to inform the community about Destructoid related events and parties that happen in Texas. We had a bit of a lull there, but we are going to have plenty of stuff to keep us busy for the first half of 2009.
First, many of you know that Destructoid's third year anniversary will be March 16th in Miami. While all of us would love to fly/drive/walk up there for that, for many of us that isn't feasible, so instead we will be having regional parties across the world to celebrate the birth of our Lord. The regional party for Texas will be at my (Coonskin's) house in College Station on March 13-15, since that is pretty much smack dab in the middle of Texas. There are also a couple of cool ideas we are throwing around for the Anniversary NARPs, but since nothing is set in stone yet I don't want to say anything, just know it will be cool.
If you can't make the Anniversary NARP (which you really should), the weekend after it, March 20-22, I am trying to get people together to head down to Austin for SXSW. There is a lot of awesome movies, music, and even a few things gaming related, and I think it would be cool to take a group to that.
Finally, after we take a break for a few months, we are heading north to Dallas for the weekend of July 3-5 when the ScrewAttack Gaming Convention comes to town. Whether or not you have any interest in ScrewAttack isn't an issue, as I hear a couple of coolpeople are going to be in town for the event, and if you haven't met them yet you definitely want to.
Since all of the cool kids are doing it, I created a Google Group for keeping everyone informed, which is a lot easier than doing a manual emailer, so if you live in Texas or the surrounding states, or just want to know what those crazy Southerners are doing, go here to join.
