Texas Flyers Line Up - how many of us?

The Michigan e-flyers are having a line up.
They seem to think they are over-represented here on EZone.
They also seem to think Michigan is a "low-density" state!
Good God, they haven't seen West Texas, have they?

How about any Texas flyers out there? What you up too?
Off the top of my head:
David Lilley - kinda owns this site, u'know.
Dalles has DEAF - Dallas Electric Aircraft Fliers.
Houston seems to be a busy area(?)
San Antonio has an indoor flying group (school gym) on the east side.
San Antonio Prop Busters has an increasing eflight membership.
San Antonio also has HOTSS (gliders and electrics), ARCS and River City. I don't know much about the last 2.

I am enjoying the heck out of a big bird version of the JK Big-T. Big-T is helping me to learn how to land using them new-fangled wheel things . Have a Wally Wonder Wing, with a Zagi and a Lowwatt under construction. As well as a few other aircraft.

Bernard, I only work here. Jim Bourke, who also lives in Texas, is the owner.

I fly at the gym occasionally. I am a member, but I rarely seem to have time to make it. Right now, I fly with a group of e-flyers at an unofficial club at Kitty Hawk Ultralight field. We have talked with the field's owner about making it an offical AMA club field, but right now, we only have 3 or 4 flyers.

austin 1

I know there are a number of Austinites on this forum. I'll consider myself Austin1....I have a lite stick, HOB spacewalker, Hangar 9 Aspire EP, Hanger 9 Endecker, Modeltech Messerschmit 109, and a Wal-mart lear jet $1.98.

Now if we could get the wind to die down a bit....or maybe I need to add a slope soarer to the collection...then I can fly anytime!
