  1. Texas Dreamweaver added a post in a topic Where in Houston can you buy travel bugs?   

    Well, TravelingGeek has the best deal in town.... especially since I just got back from REI on Westheimer.   According to Steve (SACruz) the geocacher who owns the cache in front of the store, REI no longer carries Groundspeak items because Groundspeak wouldn't allow REI to markup the price.  In other words, if GC sold the item to REI for $2.50, they expected REI to sell it for $2.50.   Uuuuh, Groundspeak, that is not the way our economy works.  
     
    Bottom line, now you only have three choices:  1) Buy Travel Bugs online, 2) Buy them at a MegaEvent where vendors are present or 3) Convince TravelingGeek to  meet you at your local pub.  For my money, I think I will always prefer #3!

    Where in Houston can you buy travel bugs?
    I know that you can buy official GC.COM Travel Bug tags at REI, but is there another store in town? Sometimes I don't want to wait for someone online to ship it to me.

    ATTENTION ALL SETX / HGCS PUZZLE MASTERS:
     
    On Saturday Morning, March 14, the Texas Challenge starting gun will go off at 9:30 am.  For everyone who is not driving up to Lubbock, there is still a way that you can help the team.
     
    We need folks sitting at home by their computers to solve the puzzles that we will be handed.  Everyone is encouraged to lend us a hand.  If you are a really good puzzle solver, you could be out of the house caching in Houston by 10:30am!  
     
    Contact the Team Captain (Texas Dreamweaver) at txdrmwvr@gmail.com NOW to volunteer.   Before the Texas Challenge Weekend, I will coordinate with you so that we can email you the puzzles at about 9:45 am on Saturday morning, March 14.  The more puzzlers that vollunteer the faster the puzzles will be solved and more time allowed for those of us in Lubbock to find them.   Thanks!

    Obviously an excellent idea, however next weekend is my wedding anniversary so that was a no go for me.  After the drinking "planning" event in Sugar Land on Thursday evening, I will send everyone info on where we might be able to get together in Lubbock on Friday evening.  In the meantime, if you have registered to compete, expect an email from me later today.

    Hey SETX!
     
    Challenge is one month away… and I can tell you that this year it is going to be really laid back.  Due to the location, the teams are the smallest that we have seen in years.  
     
    The SETX strategy will be to have FUN.  We will NOT be going to go into "Ultimate Fighting” mode; however, we will attempt just enough organization to make the challenge FUN.  Mainly we need someone to take charge of loading the coords into everyone’s GPS… and at this time that means 11 team members.  We will also want to be able to communicate with each other.  
     
    I have yet to receive the rules so I do not know if this years challenge will be strictly urban (and therefore have adequate cell tower coverage) or if the caches will be out on the edge of town in a park or nature area.  That is the kind of stuff we will discuss at an EVENT scheduled in Sugar Land for Thursday evening, March 5 at 7pm.  Informal, we are not even making reservations but will pull a couple of tables together at the Flying Saucer.
     
    FYI, even if you are not “participating” or even attending the Challenge, you are welcome at this event… so spread the word that everyone can get a smiley face along with their favorite ale.

    Jason I will take you up on that offer if the team gets larger than 12.

    Woo Hoo we now have 8 "fun hunters".

    Tech team??  We have to have a tech team???     Thanks for the update.
    So far both on and off forum I know that we have 6 team members including Baytown Bert and myself.  
     
    Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens geocachers can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.

    After Water-boarding, Sleep deprivation, a turn on the rack, threats of donut boycotting and the reinstating of a TDW ONLY Prohibition Act , I have told our SETX Rep that I will serve as the 2015 SETX Team Captain.  
     
    I figure since there will only be about 20-30 of SETX cachers attending in Lubbock, the aggravation factor vs the torture was a fair trade.  
     
    The "Mean Flamigators" will be focused on one thing and one thing only ---- HAVING FUN.   I will figure out when and where to hold a SETX Planning Event (just so we can all get a smiley).  It is quite possible that the first and only meeting will be in Lubbock the night before the challenge.... at a beer hall or course!
     
    Details to come at a later time.  For now, if everyone who is attending could let me know, I would appreciate it.  
     
     
    BTW, Baytown Bert will be in charge of official correspondence, notifications, drug testing and ensuring that the game balls are properly inflated.

    Thanks, I should have looked it up instead of using my "fuzzy memory".

    I have absolutely ZERO first hand knowledge about camping, but I think that GZ is a convention facility near the center of town.

    The holidays are over and I am putting my Texas Challenge Itinerary together.  Is there anyone who is interested in being Southeast Captain in Lubbock.  Anyone? Anyone?  ANYONE? ?
     
    Some great candidates come to mind:
     
    Kianlo
    Sugarlandians
    TeamCull
    Houston Control
    Mud Frog
    Nov64
    MOS74
    Key Results
    Rich and Lola
    Kirbydox
     
    Come on folks, this will be the first time in 4+ years that I can actually participate instead of playing management, so I really would like us to field a team.

    Bert, it is just like you to not fully understand the election process. The first motion must be voted on before we can entertain your motion. So.... You gonna get elected whether or not.
