Texas BROADSIDE! Convention: 24-25 SEP 2011

   A two-day event, held aboard the USS Texas, last of the dreadnoughts still afloat. LaPorte is about thirty minutes from Hobby Airport, so if you want to fly in... well, it isn't a long drive, and Southwest Airlines is a cheap flight. The ship is moored just across the road from the San Jacinto Battlefield and Monument, so you can hit two historic sites in one trip!

   The focus is, naturally enough, on naval wargaming. There are currently thirteen games scheduled for the two days, with additional space available to add more. There will also be an auction of an original painting by Mal Wright of the USS Texas escorting a convoy during WWII. Proceeds go to help maintain the old girl.
