    Exclamation Summer Flashapalooza 2009 DFW Texas

    The DFW Texas Get Together is going to be on Sat. June 6th.

    Same place as last year.

    Mallard Park
    7774 South State Hwy 78
    Lavon, TX 75166

    It's an outdoor area with plenty of distant objects to get some nice beamshots.

    6:30 p.m to 9:30 p.m. (or so)
    Sunset: 8:32pm
    The entrance is just south of the main park entrance
    N 33° 2' 50.76", W 96° 25' 28.09" for GPS users


    For a detailed map GO HERE

    Here is the detail of the entrance, CLICK:



    I still haven't talked to The Army Core of Engineers about using their park, the email address I had had no response, but we have some time to get it all straightened out.

    I'm working hard to get some "Special Guests" from outside TX. No word from the Army yet after 2 emails. Time to take it up a notch.

    That makes it sound like you are trying to get the army to come.

    Threats?
    Sure, they can come, but I'm talking about custom builders from all over the US (Southwest Airlines serviced).

    No threats, just other offices who may direct me in the right direction. Doesn't seem to be going as smoothly as last year.

    Thanks for the power Bob!!

    Got one of the two new lights I've been waiting for. Hopefully the other one will show before the flashapalooza. Mucho excitement!

    Burgers sound good, It's good I started it early. Let us know what your bringing, and I'll pick up sides, buns, snacks, chips, charcoal, whatever.

    The grill is gas, I'll bring the burgers and buns. I guess we'll need the other stuff- cheese, chips, condiments etc. I'll also bring some diet sodas.

    Be thinking about trades.

    I will have at least a Rexlight 2.0 and a Regal EDC up for trade/sale. Could well be other things too.

    I already plan on a cooler with coke and dp in it.

    Someone tell me anything else to bring. Maybe some cookies or such?

    I'll snag some baked beans, potato salad, and such from the Walmart deli along with some Pepsi and other sodas. Trust me, you don't want to eat my cooking.

    Aircraft800,

    Thanks for the invite. Unfortunately, I can't make it up there from my neck of the woods this time, but please keep me on the list. One of these days, I'd like to meet some of my fellow Texan flashaholics in person.

    Cheers,

    Andrew
