Austin Mega Do 3.0: Do Harder - February 20-23, 2014

I have a ticket for Thursday night's event at The Flying Saucer up for grabs. Ma Kettle isn't going to make it, so the first person who posts to claim it with $40 in their hand wins.

Guess who has a GE appointment at 6:45 PM Thurs? Granted its an hour after the inbound on AS...but is in SAT *(where I'm flying into/out of)

Yes rental car taxes are

Who all is flying out today? I'll be in the SEA BR from 9:30-11:45ish today. No guesting privileges but feel free to stop by & say hi to the guy in a Hawaiian shirt

Thanks to everyone who came out and made this another successful event. In the next few days we'll put our accounting hats on and tally the donations and provide that information.

We'll see you next year!

Thanks to the organizers, Mackieman, ParanoiaTX, Pa Kettle, Julie , Mrs Mackieman(sorry I don't remember every handle). This was a truly epic weekend and I'm sad to see it over but glad I finally get to really get some quality sleep.

To all those considering going for next year. Highly recommended, but just make sure you don't sign up until around 5 minutes after registration opens...that way I can get registered.

Thanks again for everyone who put in hard work to make this great event happen.
