This image will be updated, as will this thread when more news is available. So reserve the date, mark your calendars, and get ready!
When: May 12th
Where: Cullen Park Pavilion A
Time: 10am - ????

There is tons of room for washer games (or other games) and a friendly football scrimmage. I am working on some additional entertainment, as well as door prizes & giveaways. Check back for more details!

Further details:
Alcohol is permitted (No glass bottles (just like the beach))
Dogs are allowed.
All grills are permitted. Trailered grills must stay off the grass, e-mail me (mailto:txdavid74@txdavid.com) and I'll mark off spots for you.
UPDATE!
DJ will be providing music
Electricity is available (let me know in advance if you need it)

Cullen Park is located at Barker Cypress and Saums Rd. The area we are in is on the North side of Saums. From Downtown Houston you go West on I-10, exit Barker Cypress and go North to Saums Rd. Turn Left on Saums and go past the sports area. Turn Right on West Park View Dr (there is a huge sign for Cullen Park). It is NOT in the area with the sports fields.
Here's the map...call me if you get lost....281.773.3543

Ok guys - I need some input. Looks like I've chosen the weekend prior to the all access event. So I want to know if we should postpose this to June, or just leave it as-is at May12. I know we're going to be tailgating at all-access prior to, so are y'all up for back to back events?

Personally, I am fine with the whole back2back thing.


I think moving it to June will be a hot topic we may want to avoid.:lightbulb:

Well, I have to work May 12th, so I reallly don't want to comment. Just the perils of being a nurse and having to work weekends. Where is Cullen park anyway?

I might come but I would be coming from Austin and have to get a room for the weekend. Not that is a huge deal ... nearest/cheapest flea bag would do.

These in Katy are as close or closer as Hwy 6. There is riff raff everywhere but more so the closer to town you get. I hear about it all the time from my buddy at HPD. I hope this helps some.

Stay out here and you can even hit the famous Mo's Place at night. Country music ain't really my thang either but the scenery is nice and you would be right there anyway.

AVOID I-10!!!!! Worst than a nightmare with all the construction!!

I'm going to TRY to trade and get the day off David, but, since it took me over 2 hrs to get from Pasadena to Katy Friday night, I might need to get a room on that side of town. Don't want two hours of road rage to ruin my day!! :wild:

You could take 59 to beltway and then take Westheimer to fry road, i am not sure what construction is over on 59 (since I live in Austin) But I know this would help you avoid I-10.

My Mom lives in Deer Park. She takes Bltwy 8 to the Westpark Toll Road out here. Of course being on her son's corporate EZ Tag acct helps, too.

That's where I ran into trouble Friday night. I don't have an EZ tag so couldn't take Westpark Toll Road. They had the Beltway intrance to I-10 shut down, both ways. HORRIBlE traffic, the signs posted told you NOTHING, so we circled around for almost an hour before we found an intrance to I-10 west. Most of the headache was dealing with the horrendous traffic on a Friday night. You can bet your season tickets this old gal will have an EZ tag before long!!!

Exit Westheimer off of the Beltway and take Westheimer to Highway 6 (or any other road between the Beltway and Highway 6), cut north to "I Hate 10" from there...

David! Sounds like you have done a lot of work to make this a GO!! I am SOOOOO terribly sorry I will have to miss! Can't find anyone to work for me that weekend since it is Mother's Day weekend. Doesn't matter to them that I AM THE OLDEST MOTHER THERE!! lol Anyway!! You all have a great time, take lots of pics so your Blue Crew "grandma" can cry in her coffee!

Okay, so now Hallmark has taken their completely corporate holiday and turned it into entire weekend instead of just Sunday...?

Everyone's going out of town, so they say. If I can figure out how to work 12hr shifts Fri, Sat, and Sunday night, drive to Katy and back, and still function with a clear head, I will be there.

Thanks to everyone who made it out! I had a blast - and I'm glad to hear everyone else did too. Next year's should be even better since I'll have more time for planning. I get with those of you that wanted to help later in the year to work out the details. Next year's event will also benefit a charity - still to be determined.

See y'all at the games and on the lots......

Sorry I didn't make it out there. My mom and my aunt campaign for Mellisa Noriega. She is runnig for Shelly Gibbs's seat in the City Council. They had a party for her at the Adobi Cafe. City Council woman Carol was there along with Mayor White. They took my information and invited me to a City Council meeting this summer. Had a great time there. It was a blast. I can't wait to go. :fans: :fans: :fans:
