About the 42nd:

The 42nd was founded in January of 2011 with the goal of providing a common forum for Steampunks in and around the Upper Texas Coast.  The 42nd itself does not do business as an entity and is kept as a anarchy (two reasons for this are to avoid liability and discourage internal politics).  It depends upon individuals and smaller groups to organize and host events.  Please feel free to click the JOIN button above.  A D Cruize tries to give one free 42nd ASB patch to each member as he meets them (if you don't have one, look him up at an event and let him know).

Our monthly Houston meetings are in flux, right now. I'll try to keep this updated a little better. We are looking at other places to have it, besides Denny's.

Mr. Kazmertine, Drew has it right.  There are no ranks here - only duties . . .

Not sure if the title is right, but I am pretty sure the name you are looking for is A D Cruize.

Who is the Battalion Commander of the 42nd AB?

First SteamPunk gathering of the year, and a return from the end of year hiatus that will forever plague me. I am going to tentatively make this gathering a Third Friday gathering, for the foreseeable future. I will maintain the posts, so keep an eye on the invitations and the calendar, but unless something pretty specific is going on, I plan to do this every third Friday.

As always, costuming allowed, but not at all required. Please leave weapons (real and prop) at home.

" Comment by A D Cruize : December 8, 2014 - There will probably be a meet-up at Denny's (I-610 & TC Jester) after the first of the year. "

I'll try to remember to log on and check in. I would love to meet up with the local Houston group. -DC / On Facebook as Dugan Chamberlain

This time of year is insane for me. Starting around August, I begin preparing for the Texas Renaissance Festival, and my year doesn't wind back down again until January. I have encouraged others to arrange for meetups, but thus far, no one has picked up the torch, so I will get back to business next month.

In the meantime, I can't suggest using the Candlelight Tour at Sam Houston Park, enough. It is VERY Victorian, and would be a fun get together.

Cruize - I just can't assemble the funds to do Ikkicon. Wish I could. I was really looking forward to it.

There will probably be a meetup at Denny's (I-610 & TC Jester) after the first of the year.

Anyone going to IKKICon besides me?
