Anyone up for a Houston Meet ?

EDIT: Not this weekend (Jan 12). We will reschedule to enable as many as possible to join!


It was suggested in another thread that we have a Houston meet.

Is this the Galleria area?

I'm in. Anyone else? 9am.

Sunday won't work for me. Maybe we should try for 2-3 weeks out, so people have time to plan?

Throw out some dates, Houston people!

I'm not available on 26th but am available on 12th. If attendance is looking slim for January, maybe we can set a date in February. Also, if attendance is high, we may need to balance the number of coders (FYI, I'm a coder) and the number of those looking to get coded so that everybody who wants to get coded can get coded.

Let me know. This weekend might be a bit tight. Better to plan things out a bit for those that have other commitments.

I'm assuming the original thread creator can't update the thread title to remove the date?

This brings up another unrelated question, does bimmerfest need any new moderators? Now that i've gotten a BMW i'll definitely be on here all the time and can assist if needed. I've been a mod on other sites like androidforums.com, xda, etc...happy to help if there's a need but not sure how it works "around here".

FWIW my first available weekend is Feb. 1st.

I played around and couldn't figure out how to do it. I can do it on several other forum I belong to, but this one must not allow title changes.

I believe you can edit the title if you hit first "Edit" and then the "Go Advanced" button.... or perhaps only within a set period of time after creating the thread originally...
