    Default Anyone interested in going to Texas for The Academy?

    Not sure if anyone was thinking or knew about The Academy that is held in Texas this year. I have heard that this is an awesome show and well worth the trip.

    While the Lone Star Holiday group is a good one, and I've been to 2 or 3 of their events, I won't be making it down there this year.

    I'd rather not name names, but the addition of another group from another state to this year's event is not an incentive for me to attend.

    There, I've tried to be good, in that if I can't say something nice about someone else, I just won't say anything....

    Sorry for being cryptic but I'm not going to badmouth someone in a public forum - it's just a personal opinion thing.

    Nahh Rupert has the chopper up on blocks fixing the bearings or something. The guy wouldn't know a bearing from a bear butt. And honestly, the TASL meetings have great presentations that are cutting edge.

    Are you guys still reading other forums? Shame on you! CC is the best!!!!

    Ahem - <rerailing> - I don't know about the Texas meet, but probably not going. Tough to travel for something like lights for a couple days with the little kids...

    I knew ir. Mark told me the group. Honestly, we cover most of this stuff locally at the TASL meetings and now at the other meetings. Mark is right though.

    I was hoping to hit some of the other conventions, but only where I have current family (NJ and OH) Texas is where my first wife's ex husband lives; no reason for me to go there......the step-kids just hit me up for money anyway.
