    Default Thedarktower.org-Con 2015!!!

    A few of us got to visit, Austin, TX last year and, Terry (Sir_Boomme) was kind enough to show me the sites. Austin, is a great place to visit and I would certainly like to return, Terry, was kind enough to offer his input if a "Dark Tower Convention" might be held there. At this point, I suppose we are gauging interest. Terry, has said he could provide audio and visual (Like a movie marathon), and we could all contribute to the food and fanfare.

    So, if this sounds like fun and you would like to gather with other members, drink, eat and tell lies then say so here and just maybe we can make it happen. Tentative date is June, 2015 Let us know your thoughts and wishes!!!

    Waco is my home town... Graduated from Midway.

    My dad lives in Woodway, my sister in Bellmead... I'll be passing through there Christmas to pick up the family, hit the Czech Stop in West, and then onward to my Bro's house in Dallas.


    you're not related to DR Manske are you?

    Sir Boomme--

    Thanks for the note. Yes, Dr. Manske was my grandfather. By chance, was he your pediatrician? If so, too cool. I live in Stone Creek, just north of Woodway.

    Also, I'm in Austin often because my youngest son goes to Westlake. He will graduate this year. We will definitely have to make plans to meet soon.

    oh yeah... Dr. Manske was the only Dr. my family had while growing up...(60's through the 70's) . What a great guy and incredible old school doctor he was... I still remember the suckers he would pull out of his desk drawer every time we were ready to leave.
    Very cool to meet ya.

    if you come... dress down!
    not quite the dog days of summer... but it does get warm.

    this is typical of June weather:

    I remember such doctors. I had one who had a box full of toy by he exit doors and kids chose one before they left. The man was a God who prescribed Codeine freely in the early 70's!

    I should clarify... this summer, I should be able to swing a trip to a tdt.org get together just about anywhere in the US. So my attendance is not determined by the TX location. I would say Vegas would be a great option, because they offer some very cheap flights and stay packages. (And what happens there stays there.)

    I might be able to participate (and would love to!) - but it depends on the date(s). Air travel gets way too expensive when traveling half across the world, especially in summer months, so it pays to start planning early.

    I thought it was/is a great town, quite a few members seem to live in proximity and, Terry says he can bring a lot to bear entertainment/venue wise. However, it is as always open to the membership. Maybe a "Poll" should be added by a Mod to gauge interest?

    Not to get involved in whatever is going on between you two but didn't RF ask that personal issues be kept off the boards.

    As it is relevant to this thread, I thought it would be funny to share. If you did not laugh, then I apologize. What do you find funny? I shall create a joke for you.

    It may be relevant to the thread but it is also related to the issue between you and Bill and therefore should be kept private.
