Yes, John spoke with Russell last year when we were there last year with Kevin. John hasn’t mentioned anything about an event there but we can check. I like the Brass Tap idea also!Cody,
A friend of mine owns a pub in downtown Houston. However, it's not real close to the George R. Brown Convention Center. I've organized small get togethers after the Houston Marathon the last couple of years. I can probably get a few tables reserved. Not really any discounts, but the prices are fairly reasonable.
The Brass Tap is located at 922 Holman. There is a public parking garage adjacent to the pub, so parking is easy.
What we really need is for Gordy and Sons (https://gordyandsons.com/) to organize another book signing event and feed like they did last year with Dr. Kevin Robertson. I thought Gordy might do the same type of deal with John Sharp.
I could possibly hold a get together sometime at my place in East Central Minnesota. East side of Mille Lacs lake, couple hours North of the Twin Cities.
Thinking a shoot similar to what the Alaska guys do? I am slowly progressing on a 500 yard range. As well as pistol and archery.
We could also organize something at the Hinckley Casino during the Lake Superior SCI Convention.
And there is a new Charter in Fargo ND that I'm sure something could be arranged as well.
And Des Moines Iowa.
If enough interest.
Great idea! Anyone want to have a braai in the bushveld?I have just opened up this new forum section which I hope will bring even more people together from AH. I got inspiration for this new section because I thought it was so great that an AH member (@PHOENIX PHIL) planned a very successful dinner party on his own volition for fellow AH members to meet up at DSC.
That really made me think that it would be great if people could plan any kind of informal get togethers nearby where they live, any time of the year, even if it was only a couple of people who turned up. It inspires me to think that AH could go beyond just being a website that you visit and become a place for social connections in your everyday life.
I think it would be good to include the locality of your get together in the title of your post.
Looking forward to hearing about some of your get togethers...
