      I was only suggesting this because most of the people even responding to this thread have been from this side of town.I will cruise wherever.

      Cool let me know prior to next time I will go for sure.Try to make it out this weekend I am trying to get a gtg in p-ville going.

      Oh, the next race I'm going to will be on nov. 12 either in san ant. or in bryan. Havent decided yet. let me know if you wanna go and I will give you all the info you need to get signed up and registered.

      What time is the GTG. 8:00pm?

      all i know is that last saturday we had the trial run and it worked very well. no drama. few guys. cool dubs. I also found out that my car will get up on three wheels like the old gti's. very exciting. My fear about p-ville is that the asian import crowd has founded a place in that vicinity and i don't want the staggelers to confuse the groups.

      We've had a few 50-60 car GTGs up in Austin combining both the A-town and SA-town Dubs in year's past. We should do it again. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Why is the meet so far north west?
      Cedar park is way out of the way but for 4 people?
      We used to meet at Cabana, but that's sort of bust.. so we should find something else CENTRAL. But what do I know? I haven't been running the austin based vw forum or trying to get a unified group of people back together for the last 6 years or anything.

      I might see if myself and rogue113 (R32) can swing by. Maybe somebody can help my retarded a$$ get my boost gauge wired up.

      I don't think anyone was stepping up to do anything, that is why Jakko stepped in. I think there are a number of people in the NW side of town, and it isn't any different for the Killeen guys to get to Best Buy than it was Cabana. I think everyone would like to be able to meet up close to their house, but that won't happen for everyone. I know the p-ville guys would like something closer to their neck of the woods, but a couple of people have mentioned the "fast & furious" crowd that could migrate over and risk messing up something. This thread has been going back and forth for a week and I have seen a few more hits from newer guys that I have never (or hardly) seen on here. Maybe it is time for a fresh start so we can all find a unified place to meet. If there is a better, central location, mention it. Where do you suggest?
      I'm not trying to be a jerk here, but what is the big deal with meeting at the Best Buy lot?

    11. 10-19-2006 11:31 AM #36
      I personally don't mind driving my car across town
      Last time I went to Cabana, the "fast and furious" started to swing in. Not that I don't like hot STis its just the kind of people that they tend to bring. We should try for BB but might want to start thinking about a new spot.

      Guys, I just posted up the Best Buy location because it has enough room and it was easy for a quick lets get something going thing. Im totally in favor of a more central location and have been searching the area for good places. When we meet up on Saturday we should discuss other options. As of now, the TCs are kinda being overrun with the fast and furious. I really like the 360/183 location but now there is a rentacop that patrols the TC and surrounding area.[IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthdown.gif[/IMG]

      In all honesty the central austin area sucks for meet locations. We could try a grocery store but i think getting people out and meeting everybody is great. remeber that bby is just the meeting spot. We can always cruise to get food or take pictures or watch me do cart wheels. i applaud jacob for trying to get everyone together. There are some hot cars that i have been seeing around that i would love to see standing still.

      I too think we should go ahead and meet up at Best Buy this weekend and then we can discuss new locations. I also spoke to Kelly at MJM who said that if we were able to get a good group of dubbers together that he could try to pull some strings to get an Austin and San Antonio meet at some point (this would obviously not be on a weekly basis, but it still sounds like a cool idea).

    17. 10-20-2006 01:58 AM #42
      I hate to say it but as small as our crowd is here.....our cars our way hotter and our dubbers are way cooler than anything i have seen in satx. But a combined meet would be cool.

      i have an idea for a couple of locations

      the new wallmart of I35 and parmer (freakin huge ass parking lot)

      i would say another place would be tinseltown parkin lot in pville would be nice to see them people drool over them dubs when they leave the theatre

      another nice location would be fry's electronics parking lot of parmer and loop 1 i believe
      but the bb by lakeline wouldnt be 2 bad either.

      p.s. finaly got my rado running after a bastard wrecked my red 1 just need to give her some lovin and shell be just as sexy as my other 1.
      im just glad im still alive cos the crash wasstn pretty.

      I like the location area...I was also looking in that area. I used to work at Fry's. Tinseltown would be a good location. The only thing with Walmart, the old folk might call the cops if anyone does anything stupid. Same with Fry's, Im sure they would ask us to leave. We could go to the Big Lots parking lot next to it though, but its close to the PD and the people who work at frys have fast and the furious attitudes. so we run the risk of some guy squealing tires near us...

      beachball6 and myself will prolly cruise out there.

    22. 10-22-2006 05:55 PM #47
      I was a little late getting there because this ******* cop at UT pulled me over and gave me a citation claiming that I ran a stop sign. Which, in short, is horse ****... I didn't do it. Anyway, NO ONE WAS THERE. Did everyone leave by 9:30?????

      We left about nine. when we left there were only 4 or 5 cars.

    25. 10-22-2006 11:26 PM #50
      Hmm. Well, were it not for that jerkoff rent-a-cop at UT I would have made it in time. Hopefully, if there is one next weekend, I'll make it in time. I might also have my new parts on the car by then too. That would be cool.
