Meeting Update:

Date/time:
Sunday Jan 26 at 2 PM.

Meeting was a success. Pictures are attached at the end.



-------------------------------------------



Hello
I am giddy excited about this upcoming meetup. Biggrin

After a few casual PMs/Text/emails between some of us from the Austin/San Antonio area, we have decided to meet in Austin. Oscar (ojinsa), Andrew, Jeremy (cessnabird) and I are meeting at a location (TBD) in Austin, TX on Jan 26th.

Knowing how much fun these meetups are, we all thought it will double the fun/memories if other members can join. Cheers So here we are, asking to check interest from others. Please chime in and we can discuss about possible locations for that day.

It is great that Oscar is willing to drive from San Antonio. I want to thank Phil and all mods for helping and allowing to create this thread.

Let me just quickly follow up what Roopesh has stated and add that taking a break from our daily grinds to meet some like-minded comrades is a rewarding experience. Roopesh and I have sold and traded items between ourselves, and since we live relatively near each other we conducted the exchanges in person (over some darn good local coffees I might add), and I honestly believe I'm better off for having had the chance to meet and visit with Roopesh and discuss shaving and life.

I've had similar meetings with other members, and honestly each time I feel gratitude for having made a friendship with that member. So, if you can join us, I would be honored to make your acquaintance. If not, I'll still consider y'all my friend.

I am too far away, alas. Sad However, Oscar, I know just what you mean. I have had the good fortune to meet Phil, Pam, Patrick, Emanuel (when my friend and I were in Lisbon last summer), Andrew, and Johnny and I am always richer and happier for the experience. Have a great time, gents, and I'll add my voice to "Pictures, please!" Biggrin

Congratulations on setting this up, gentlemen and I hope you all have a great time! As Oscar has stated, these meet-ups are fantastic and great events to attend.
We have had two already in Vancouver with three members from here and one other member on another forum. You get to see so much gear first-hand and learn so many different aspects of this journey!
I highly recommend them! Biggrin

Yes, it is always a special event to meet face to face with the generous men of TSN. Roopesh and I have met on several occasions and I consider him a good friend, even aside from the shaving community. I am looking forward to this meetup.

Oh darn! I lived in the San Antonio area for 3-4 years as a kid when my dad was stationed at Randolph A.F.B. Johnson was president, my sister and I walked two blocks to our closest friend with a color t.v. to watch the Monkees and Star Trek every night they were on and pop was shaving with the T.V. Special Super Speed I use now.............
Remember the Alamo! and Shave Nook!

Shawn, that is a good question. Smile
Oscar, what time works for you since I am guessing you will be driving back to San Antonio the same day?

I'm game for anytime that works for all. San Antonio isn't that far and am happy to drive back at any time. If it makes it easier to consider, my philosophy is the same as the modern day poet/philosopher Vanilla Ice, which is "to get in where I fit in..."

I have no appointments for the day and completely open.

Want to do lunch or post lunch, gents?
