Chris Roberts and Sandi Gardiner as well as other CIG staff (TBD) will be attending another Austin Bar Citizen hangout!
PLEASE RSVP! I need to know how many will be coming so an appropriate venue can be selected! Location to be determined about 4 days prior after we have an idea on the number of attendees! I NEED these numbers to pick a venue.
Thank you and best wishes in the Verse!

On August 14th four Bar Citizens made it to Iron Cactus for a social. We had hoped for a better showing/more members. But, we were resolved to enjoy discussing Star Citizen and whatever else came up!
To our surprise we got flooded with some SC devs! Seems one of our members used to work for SC and informed those in the office that we were meeting.
We were joined by the following developers: Devops:Marketing:
Jeffrey Parker Ryan Archer
Ahmed Shaker AI (From the Germany Office!)
Keegan Standifer Francesco Roccussi
Miles Lee Production - ATX Engineering
Mark Hong Director of PU
YEP! EIGHT of the Star Citizen devs showed up to hobnob with the Austin Bar Citizens.
A shout out to Francesco as he was very animated and fun to talk to with some good stories about the AI development and issues!
Tony was his normal self: At some times quiet and lost in his own world and at other times so intensely involved in getting out what he needed to say that it seemed he wasn't taking a breath. Very informative.
I think it is safe to say the Austin Bar Citizen's present enjoyed visiting with all of the SC developers who showed up... Except for this guy who couldn't stop working! The whole time he was visiting he was on the laptop working away!
And, here are the four Austin Bar Citizens with Francesco (in the green shirt) from the Germany office!
I had a great time.
Next meetup is tonight! A different group of Austin Bar Citizens will be at Iron Cactus at 1900.

So, if you were in town for SXSW and after the CIG Presentation you met up with the Austin Bar Citizen crew...
Then you got to meet Chris Roberts! He walked over to our location, had drink or two, and spent over an hour talking about Star Citizen with over 30 Star Citizens who asked questions ranging from his previous home in the Austin area to the new PTU release and weapons systems.
I, as usual, had a blast! Got a picture? Can we prove it? Well, yes we can!
I can't speak for everyone else - but, I had a great time! There were more people who were present than in this picture (who had to leave early).
I think I can speak for the Austin Bar Citizens by expressing appreciation for all the persons who came in to hang out from out of town... From Nacadoches to some place whose name I can't remember - but, it is 11 miles from the Mexico border - to Houston, and DFW... Oh, one migratory person (moving) who goes by years1hundred and some guy named Chris Roberts from Santa Monica, Ca (formerly from Spicewood Springs!).
